In German private law, as well as in most other legal systems, there is a clear
division between contract law and tort law. Since many of the questions which
arise in tort law, specifically the law of delict, in the context ofintentionality also

the declaration of intent. In German private law, these questions are principally

but also to do so with a guilty mind (a mens rea). That is not to say that someone
who knowingly commits a tort will necessarily commit a crime in so acting.

42 USCS § 1983 gives remedy—action at law, suit in equity, or other proper
proceeding for redress—to parties deprived of constitutional rights, privileges,
and immunities by an official's abuse of his position (Monroe v. Pape, 1961). The

wrongdoer (tort feasor) was acting under the “color of law.” Federal Civil Rights

Holmes, in The Common Law, describes some of the early moves of this sort: “To
charge a man for not acting, you must show that it was his duty to act. ... The
ground of liability was that the defendant had started upon the undertaking, so
that his negligent omission, which let in the damage, could be connected with his
acts as a part of his dealing with the thing.” This line of thought, according to
Holmes, ...

As to the shooting, the rule is that an employee who acts for his own ends and not
on behalf of the employer is not acting in the course of employment.80 On the
other hand, the “degree of deviation” rule broadens the employer's vicarious

shooting be considered a “detour” so that D would be held vicariously liable to P2
