Hundreds of Incidents of Civil Battery

Civil Battery: The following elements must be proven to establish a case for battery: (1) an act by a defendant; (2) an intent to cause harmful or offensive contact on the part of the defendant; and (3) harmful or offensive contact to the plaintiff.

Example, below, courtesy of miscreant students at the University of Oregon.  The hapless victim being mercilessly pummeled is reported to be an Oregon University Professor. (As an aside, I think that a reasonably prudent driver would have removed the snow from the car's hood before driving.)
