Answer:

A battery is a harmful or offensive contact with the person of another. Harmful contact is when the plaintiff is harmed by the contact. Offensive contact is contact that a reasonable person would find offensive, such as blowing smoke in someone's face. "Person of another" includes the physical person and also anything that is connected to them, such as a coat or book in their hand.

Answer:

Case briefs tend to include the following sections: facts, issues, holding, and reasoning. For the facts part of the brief, make sure you are only writing down the facts that are used by the court in the holding and reasoning. Cases tend to provide a lot of background information that does not need to be in the facts section. For the issues, you should spot the different legal issues that the court is trying to address. For each of those issues, you then need to provide the holding, or the decision that the court made regarding that issue, and the reasoning behind the court's decision.

Answer:

The judicial branch of the U.S. government is made up of different levels of the courts. These courts review law by looking at cases that are brought before them. The judicial branch also explains the law and how it should or should not be applied in a situation. This leads to the resolution of the dispute that is brought before the court.
