Severe Recklessness Law and Legal Definition

Severe recklessness is defined as: “Highly unreasonable omissions or misrepresentations that involve not merely simple or even inexcusable negligence, but an extreme departure from the standards of ordinary care, and that present a danger of misleading buyers or sellers which is either known to the defendant or is so obvious that the defendant must have been aware of it.” Zisholtz v. Suntrust Banks, Inc., 2009 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 88465, 10-11 (N.D. Ga. Sept. 24, 2009)
