Intention et lien de causalité dans le droit comparé de la responsabilité civile (la fable très peu convenue de la malice qui accroche)

Abstract

The goal of the essay is to discuss the role that a person’s malice may play in Western tort laws. To this purpose, the paper examines how the finding of the defendant’s malice may: (i) make the victim’s or a third party’s contribution to the injury appear negligible; (ii) blur the distinction between acts and omissions; (iii) relax the notions of proximity and remoteness; and (iv) extend the range of consequences for which the defendant can be held liable.
