This Torts I exam, given by Professor William T. Muse on November 6, 1945, begins with the question:

On Halloween night a group of boys pick up a plank lying on A's land and place it on B's land. The next morning A discovers it on B's land and retrieves it. As he is leaving, he sees B and accuses him of having taken it. B resentfully knocks A down. Thereupon A draws a knife and pursues B who runs across C's land. A comes within striking distance of B who thereupon picks up C's cane and breaks it over A's head. Discuss the liabilities of all the parties.
