Current Law Students / Re: Transferred Intent
« on: December 29, 2004, 08:14:46 AM »
The intent is transferred to a different victim.  The status of the victim defines the offense.  Yes, it's a felony.

what's to discuss?


Yes.  What's to discuss?

I have a question.

Suppose student A attempts to hit student B, (which would be misdemeanor assault) but much to the surprise of student A, a teacher shows up out of no where, steps in and gets struck by A's fist.  Under the state statute, assaulting a teacher is a felony. Does the doctrine of transferred intent make A's punch a misdemeanor or a felony?

Assault = Knowingly causing or attempting to cause physical harm to another.

Discuss.

Better work on that imagination before that examination.  I imagine the "what's to discuss" portion is the presumption that all victims are equal and the use of transferred intent to boost the offense from a mis to a fel.

We don't get grades until the first week in February.  So I'm not even thinking about it, or holding my breath.

Not 'til February.  That waiting must be worse than the exams.  Our torts mid-term was postponed because of bad weather and I'm in agony over that.

Online Law Schools / Re: Accreditation v. S.C Approval

I believe that most of the DL law schools are located in California. There is also one in Honolulu, and some others which offer only Master's and Doctorates.

What is the school at Tennessee, and is there a complete list of DL law schools somewhere?

I noticed that most DL law schools are in California.  I think there is one in Massachusetts or New York also.  Someone pointed to a list on the web, but I can't remember where.

My school is not a distance law school.  It is a night school and part-time.

Yea, thanks again for the advice.  I do run in the occasional 5k or 10k and I guess keeping that up will be a good way to not get so stressed out.  Good idea there.

Running stresses me out, unless I'm being chased by someone.

The SC in each state is the only institution that can approve a school's graduates to sit for the bar.  It's just that all the SCs approve all schools with ABA approval.  My school is not ABA approved, but it is approved by the Tennessee Supreme Court.

I agree.  Balance is needed.  I've goofed off the last two days so my grandchildren will remember what I look like, so my wife won't think she's a widow and so I can feel a little bit normal.  It's a compromise.

I will not get the best grades I might, but I will be somewhat whole.
