This torts quiz, given by law school dean and professor William T. Muse on October 29, 1969, consists of one question:

A, accompanied by B, went to C's house carrying a portrait of C's old enemy, X. When C opened the door, A held the portrait up in front of C's s face. Enraged at this, C spit on the portrait and kicked at A. The kick missed A and hit B causing a slight bruise. A then attacked C knocking him down inside the house and grappling with him on the floor. B stepped inside and closed and bolted the door to prevent neighbors from interfering. As soon as C had been subdued A and B left. What personal torts, if any, have been committed? By whom? Against whom? Why? Why not?
