This torts quiz, given by law school dean and professor William T. Muse on November 24, 1961, consists of one question:

During a quarrel on the sidewalk of a downtown street, A threw a heavy wrench at B intending to kill him. The wrench missed B and struck and ruined an antique portrait being carried by C. D, C's husband, watched the incident from the window of his nearby antique shop and wanted to come to the aid of C but feared he would be shot if he left the shop. B was not aware of the incident until sometime later. C was greatly startled but not in fear of harm, and she was in no wise physically injured. What liabilities?
