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.
