Harmful or offensive contact can come about directly or indirectly, so direct is simple, you're just punching someone etc. Indirect is what we are talking about here. So lets look at the elements. Intent, + harmful or offensive contact + causation = damages.
Intent is described as a volitional action where the actor intended the harmful or offensive contact OR was it was substantially certain it would occur.
I would think that digging a trap for someone, even if it was a remote and slightly used trail would create a substantial certainty someone would fall in it. Plus he intended the damages. They were indirectly caused by the actor. Indirect damages are easier to figure out if you say put a laxative in someone's drink unknowingly. That's a pretty obvious harmful contact.
This is a battery. He acted with malice so he'd be liable for actual and punitive damages. As well as criminal sanctions if the state chose to proceeed.
i just started my law school career and frankly i've used it almost every day sinse. were starting with some of the classic cases and some of these cases are using legal terms that have sinse been replaced. (demurr is one) and i think it's much easier to have a book especially if you're like me and prefer not be near their laptop while working due to the dangers of myspace and youtube.
I had to ammend an app at my school before I started, I neglected to mention and underage drinking citation and they were real cool with it. They said that they were happy I did it before I matriculated and that the day the dean says soemthing about ammending apps at orientation there's alwaysa at least a dozen students in her office that afternoon. So if it's something like that, my advice would be to disclose early and completely and you'll be fine. Let them know it was an oversight and not intentional and you are not trying to hide anything.
I am moving into the dorms, Shipley hall third floor. I am moving in on friday, it was the only day I could get my father to help me and he has a truck vs. my Hyundai so i might as well take advantage. My last day of work if Wednesday the 8th and I'm counting down the days. No more selling or fixing computers. I'm hoping a few people move in on Friday because I would like to get some people up to go to Scrimmages for a few.
I would suggest not taking the LSAT until you are confident you will score above a 150. Generally your scores do not erase once you take them and you'll use the mean of all your tests in applying for schools. Schools are very hesistant about accepting a student who scores sub 150. A few points will make a huge difference.
I don't know if you need a floppy or not, i'm assuming it's so you can hand your paper in at the end. I was wondering if an email or blank cd would be okay. If not you'll have to buy an external floppy drive that runs through the usb on your computer. They're not that expensive.
