Write briefly that the judgment against one tort-feasor is no bar for action against others.

[Law of Torts] – Under the Common Law, a judgment against one tort-feasor was a bar against further action against others. But the law reform (Married Women and Tort-feasors) Act, 1935 has now abolished the above rule.  The law is now that a judgment recovered against one tort-feasor, if unsatisfied does not bar a subsequent action against any other tort-feasor irrespective of whether he was a joint tort-feasor or one of the several tort-feasor causing the same or indivisible damage.
