[HN35] The doctrine of remoteness bars recovery in tort for indirect harm suffered as a result of injuries directly sustained by another person. In the context of a securities fraud action, the United States Supreme Court recognized that the concept of proximate causation generally requires some direct relation between the injury asserted and the injurious conduct alleged. Therefore, a plaintiff who complains of harm flowing merely from the misfortunes visited upon a third person by the defendant's acts is generally said to stand at too remote a distance to recover.
