McDonalds’ Torts

McDonalds made the news again with another hefty award in a tort case based on a phone scam of an employee. According to the article,

Her case against her employer was based on a duty-to-warn theory of liability: Ogborn’s lawyers contended that McDonald’s didn’t effectively alert its workers that such a telephone scam might be attempted, “even though the caller had successfully pulled off the same scam at dozens of its other franchises across the country,” ABC reports. McDonald’s counsel said poor judgment by restaurant management was the cause of the incident.

“Failure to warn,” refers to what tort? Torts Class, what do you think?
