What is battery (civil)?

“A battery is a violation of an individual’s interest in freedom from intentional, unlawful, harmful or offensive unconsented contacts with his or her person.” Rains v. Super. Ct. (1984) 150 Cal.App.3d 933, 938.

“The essential elements of a cause of action for battery are:

  1. The defendant touched plaintiff, or caused plaintiff to be touched, with the intent to harm or offend plaintiff;
  2. The plaintiff did not consent to the touching;
  3. The plaintiff was harmed or offended by defendant’s conduct; and
  4. A reasonable person in the plaintiff’s position would have been offended by the touching.”

So v. Shin (2013) 212 Cal.App.4th 652, 669.

“[T]he tort of battery generally is not limited to direct body-to-body contact. In fact, the commentary to the Restatement Second of Torts clearly states that the ‘[m]eaning of “contact with another’s person”’... does not require that one ‘should bring any part of his own body in contact with another’s person....[One] is liable [for battery] in this Section if [one] throws a substance, such as water, upon the other....’” Mount Vernon Fire Ins. Co. v. Busby (2013) 219 Cal.App.4th 876, 881.

“The element of lack of consent to the particular contact is an essential element of battery.” Rains, supra, 150 Cal.App.3d at p. 938. “As a general rule, one who consents to a touching cannot recover in an action for battery.... However, it is well-recognized a person may place conditions on the consent. If the actor exceeds the terms or conditions of the consent, the consent does not protect the actor from liability for the excessive act.” Ashcraft v. King (1991) 228 Cal.App.3d 604, 609–610; 278 Cal.Rptr. 900.
