Feedback C is correct. Intentional infliction of emotional distress requires intentional, outrageous conduct which results in severe mental suffering. If Danny knowingly kicked the ramp so that it slipped sideways causing Potter to fall in front of all of the shareholders, his conduct was intentional. In addition, conduct is "outrageous" if it exceeds all bounds normally tolerated by decent society and is calculated to cause mental suffering. Conduct is "calculated to cause mental suffering" if suffering in the mind of a reasonable person is an almost inevitable result. Danny kicking the ramp, when Potter was descending onto the amphitheater in order to address the shareholders, causing him to fall in front of all of the shareholders, caused him to be humiliated. Outrageous conduct is "intentional" if the defendant desired or knew with substantial certainty that it would result in mental suffering in the plaintiff. A is incorrect since for intentional infliction of emotional distress does not require physical injuries. B is incorrect because even if moving the ramp, Danny's conduct exceeds all bounds normally tolerated by decent society even though his motive was to play a joke. The correct answer is: Judgment for Potter, if Danny was substantially certain that moving the ramp would cause Potter to fall.
Question 4
Incorrect Mark 0.00 out of 1.00 Flag question Question text Slick and Rider were driving down Main Street in their restored old American Automobiles when Slick's vehicle bumped lightly into Rider's car, scraping away some paint. Slick and Rider both got out of their cars and examined the damage, after which Rider made disparaging remarks about Slick's car. Slick slapped Rider in the face; Rider punched Slick in the nose. Slick seized Rider in a half-nelson, and started to ram Rider's head into the side of Rider's car. At this moment, Rider's brother, Bobby, who had just driven by, leaped from his car, pulled a knife, and held it to Slick's throat, saying, "Let him go or I'll cut you." Slick released Rider, but subsequently sued Rider's brother for assault. The court will find for: Select one: 3 0 qaid=296109&qub 0
an assault. However, defense of another allows a party to have a privilege to use reasonable force to protect a third party against the aggressor. In determining whether force was reasonable, courts usually will have Rider's brother step in the shoes of Rider.
