First Year Law by Gypsy

Question 1

This 1891 case is used to illustrate the "Eggshell skull" rule. "The intention to do harm is the essence of an assault" and "If the intended act is unlawful, the intention to commit it must necessarily be unlawful." Sure, but it was just a kid who kicked another kid in the leg. He didn't know there was a preexisting injury.
