The Law of Tort: Inducing Wrongful Acts, Occasioning Harm

The Law of Tort: Inducing Wrongful Acts, Occasioning Harm

(p.186) VII The Law of Tort: Inducing Wrongful Acts, Occasioning Harm
Causation in the Law

H. L. A. Hart

Oxford University Press

This chapter first studies the place in the law of tort, of such notions as ‘inducing’, ‘enticing’, and ‘intimidating’ and the dividing lines drawn by courts between these and merely ‘advising’ or ‘facilitating’ another's action. Second, it considers a segment of the law of negligence and certain types of breach of statutory duty where liability is based on the fact that the party in default has provided an opportunity or occasion for other persons to do harm or for natural phenomena of an extraordinary or coincidental character to cause it.

Keywords:   tort law, wrongful acts, occasioning harm, negligence, inducing, intimidating, enticing
