This torts quiz, given by law school dean and professor William T. Muse on October 30, 1962, consists of one question:

Flourishing a revolver, A pursues B into a crowded store. As A's finger tightens on the trigger, B sinks to the floor so that the bullet strikes C, who is directly behind B. B then picks up a silver tray and uses it as a shield while backing into the store manager's office which is occupied by several stenographers. Just before he closes and locks the door, a second bullet pierces the tray but is diverted from B. After waiting some time A leaves. What torts, if any, have been committed? By whom? Against whom? Why or why not?
