Because he was dancing, not fighting...


We're getting off point here... The dancing guy wanted to hit the air above his head, that's all. The drunken heathen that ran into the dancer's first with his head is the potential tortfeasor here. If we show fault/negligence (say he was on E along with his bottle of jager) and stumbled into the innocent dancer thereby hurting dancer's first with his sweaty head... we have a case, no?


but what about the whole substantial certainty bit? the nightclub location covers that i guess. whatever man i'm giving legal advice or nothing, feel free to correct me and all. enjoy it if you must, no need to be hostile.


Cmon man, there is no knowledge of a substantial certainty that he would hit someone. Knowledge of a substantial certainty is something like putting on a blindfold and firing a gun into a crowd. Sure, you might hope to the high heavens that you don't hit anyone, but you know with a substantial certainty that you will. Now compare that to the guy pumping his fist in a club. See how it doesn't equate?

1Ls: you're still doing it right. Being wrong and learning from it is the name of the game.

Also, this is why you don't outline already... you don't have a fucking clue what you are talking about.


Already finished my outline. Asking my profs if I can take my finals early. In all seriousness I should have done that 0L prep... :mrgreen:

You'd need to put clothes on first.


It's not that I'm kinky or anything, it's sort of a spiritual nakedness really...

I, for one, have to come clean and admit that my ridiculous hypo was only intended to display that nuance (esp. when trying to show fault by negligence) does matter, that's all.

With that said, I don't think someone bumping into another in a club is negligent behavior. Moving on....

This thread is so full of fail. I get that most people are 1Ls just learning the ropes, but Jesus Christ stop being so outrageous. Your classmates (and professors) will not like you if this is how you talk and think in class.

+1. Only in the second week and two guys in my section have already outed themselves as "that guy."

I thought you all were talking about intentional torts? What does negligence have to do with it? [Also, bumping into someone at a club could very well be negligence.]


Nope - not taking that transferred intent bait; instead I will say that I assumed this entire thread (per title) was about torts, generally speaking. ;)

Also, the only stance I'm confident in taking thus far about the entire law school experience is that 99% of cases we discuss are clearly chosen to display that "it all depends." There are always exceptions, defenses, alternative methods of interpreting rules, facts, and so on....

I'm a little bewildered about the reliance on restatments in class though...
