Part A: Describe three (3) different forms of monetary damages that may be available to victims of intentional torts. Part B: The purple-faced six-foot-tall supervisor screamed across a small open office containing three (3) employees, "John, the books don't balance again this month. Are you really that dense that you can't understand debits and credits? I ought to fire you this time,'' he said, waving an empty coffee mug at him. Usually, shy John wheeled around in his chair, and throws his filled ceramic coffee mug four (4) feet at his supervisor and missed him by one (1) foot. The supervisor, in attempting to dodge, tripped on his untied shoelace and sprained his ankle. The other two (2) employees assisted the supervisor. John was still angry as he left the building, but he knew that he wasn't dense! And he didn't care if he got fired. Discuss whether or not both John and his supervisor have a valid cause of action for assault and / or battery against each other.
