This torts exam, given by law school dean and professor William T. Muse on May 30, 1959, begins with the question:
A and B were spectators at an exciting ball game. A received a hard slap on the back and, believing that B had struck him, he turned and struck B. This knocked B against C, a young woman who, fearing a riot, became hysterical and was taken to a physician by her husband. What causes of action, if any: (1) if B struck A; (2) if B did not strike A?
