Cases on Legal Liability

Excerpt from Cases on Legal Liability The subject of the present collection is that body of legal prin ciples which determines whether one may be charged with the consequences of his act. Not all the requisites of ultimate liability are here considered; the element of blame is not treated. It is left for a more particular study of the law of Torts to de termine what degree of intention, malice or negligence must exist before one may be forced to make compensation for a wrong; and for a study of Criminal Law to determine how far a guilty mind is requisite before punishment can be inflicted. The topics here considered are those fundamental ones which are a common element of torts and crimes; and the object of this collection is to prevent that duplication of effort which has heretofore existed through the attempt to include instruction in these topics in courses on Torts and on Criminal Law. The editor can claim little credit for the selection of the cases here collected. Most of the civil cases on Causation have been found in Judge Smith's Cases on Torts, and in the notes to his illuminating articles on Legal Cause (harvard Law Review, vol. Xxv, pp. 103, 223, Most of the civil cases on Permitted Acts have been found in the text and notes of Ames's Cases on Torts. Most of the criminal cases have been taken from the second edi tion of the present editor's Cases on Criminal Law.
