10 Most-Cited Torts/Insurance Faculty in the U.S. for the period 2013-2017 (UPDATED AND CORRECTED)

Based on the latest Sisk data, here are the ten most-cited torts/insurance law professors (several on the list below work at the intersection of insurance and tort law) in the U.S. for the period 2013-2017 (inclusive) (remember that the data was collected in late May of 2018, and that the pre-2018 database did expand a bit since then).  Numbers are rounded to the nearest five.    Faculty for whom 75% or more of their citations (based on a sample) are in this area are listed; others with less than 75% of their citations in this field (but still a plurality) are listed in the category of "other highly cited scholars who work partly in this area" (I usually list no more than five in this category, except where the fifth and sixth are very close in total cites.
