Sunday Morning Hypotheticals

20 Sep

Here are some hypotheticals for you all to enjoy:

“Accused administers a vicious blow to victim’s head with a blackjack. The victim is taken to a hospital for treatment where
(a) due to negligent medical tratment of the wound he dies of meningitis,
(b) he dies of scarlet fever communicated by a nurse,
(c) he is mortally wounded by a knife-wielding maniac,
(d) he is decapitated by a maniac,
(e) he deliberately takes a fatal dose of sleeping pills to end his misery, or
(f) he is seized with an attack of appendicitis from which he dies.”

Remind me never to mess with a law school textbook hypothetical writer.
