My memory says you can never use force to regain chattel.

The most important thing to remember about torts:

Never take a client named A.  They're always liable.

Be careful of a client named B.  They're usually innocent dupes, but not always.

Clients named C can be good.  They're often really good plaintiffs.

Quizzzz question:
Why do they bifurcate for punative damages?
