He Said He Would "Fix Her Clock."
It sounds like the title of a porn movie doesn't it? Who would have thought a case about assault would turn out to be so lewd and lascivious? In this case (Western Union Telegraph Co. v. Hill), the defendant is accused of assault on a female clock repairer. He asked that she come behind the counter so he could 'love and pet her' and that he would "fix her clock."
I can't wait to see how Prof Torts will handle this case and if he'll even acknowledge the double entendre about fixing her clock.
