It's broader.  If you intend to hit someone and someone is hurt...

If transfered intent did not exist, I guess it would be neglegence.

And yes, Dr. Phil's guest could you liable even though you only intended to hit B.

He was warning us for the exam and reinforcing his point about some of the cases we studied.

We had read a number of cases where the court ruled PE, but he felt there was sufficient evidence to support consideration.  He's told us a number of times not to settle for PE right away.  Look harder to make sure you can't argue consideration instead.  Better damages available than with PE.

Our prof doesn't like PE as a strategy, because the level of damages are lower.  He's told us that if we plan to answer an exam question with PE, we better deal with consideratifon first.
I would think that dealing with consideration first is a given, regardless of your Prof's opinion of PE.

If you intended to punch B and missed, tripped and knocked over C's ladder which made D think  he was going to be hit by the ladder, but wasn't=.

You intended battery against B but your intent transferred to assault against D

Don't worry about it.

The worst that can happen is you will fail the course and flunk out of law school and have no legal career whatsoever.

Directly on point.  The worst that can happen is you'll end up where you started.

Our prof said to think of promissory estoppel as a substitute for consideration.

do most people at your school use outlining software?  I think at my school 80% still just use Word.

We are low tech.  I suspect most are using word or something like it.

jeffjoe - but other than that freeze up, did you find flashlaw to be a good program, better then storelaw?  they seem to take different approaches.

I got hung up on the freeze up and just used storelaw which I had bought before free flashlaw showed up.
