I.B. Intentional, Negligent, or Something in Between?

by JZTortsClass Show/Hide
  1. 1 Show/Hide More Picard v. Barry Pontiac-Buick, Inc.--"The Camera Toucher"
    Original Creator: JZTortsClass
    Should intentional contact with an object attached to the plaintiff constitute battery? For the tort of assault, should we consider if defendant intended to cause apprehension in the plaintiff?
  2. 2 Show/Hide More Garratt v. Dailey--"The Chair-Pulling Five Year Old"
    Original Creator: jcochran Current Version: JZTortsClass
    Should defendants be liable if they knowingly expose the plaintiff to a near certainty of harmful contact? If so, should liability still be assigned even if the defendant did not act for the purpose of hurting the plaintiff?
  3. 3 Show/Hide More Wallace v. Rosen--"The Fire Drill and the Blocked Stairwell"
    Original Creator: JZTortsClass
    Should there be certain purposes for which unconsented, intentional contact will be permitted by law? And should mere knowledge and appreciation of a risk be regarded as equivalent to an intention to inflict harm?
