Law in your backyard
The “Tony Trespasser” case study explored different types of Torts including trespass to land, goods and the person. It’s now time for you to discover how the law applies in your jurisdiction.
What you need to do
Go online and find the law related to Torts in your jurisdiction. If you live in Australia, consider finding out about the law from another State or common law jurisdiction.
In the Comments, share with other learners your findings.
In the case study, Tony placed the ceramic frog in the hand of the sleeping student. Does this raise any torts liability in your jurisdiction, even though the student wasn’t aware (and suffered no harm)? Can you explain the law relating to battery as it applies in your jurisdiction? What remedies are available for tortious acts in your jurisdiction?
