Paper Abstract

Liability of database providers for erroneous information provided in a database which leads to economic, personal, or property injury to a third party who relies on that information is predicated on there being a `special relationship' between the party that created the database or the publisher of that database and the party relying on the information to its detriment. Absent such special relationship constitutional concerns that the transmission of ideas be free flowing will take precedence over the injuries suffered by a third party who relies on those ideas.
