Wackett attached Calder outside a bar. C retaliated with 1 punch; turned to go back inside but got attacked again by W. C retaliated with 2nd punches, one of which was fairly injurious to W. C remained unharmed. W sued C for battery
Did C act in self-defence? Was it a reasonable use of force?
An act of repelling an (apprehended) attack does not need to be measured with complete exactitude or nicety.
Appeal allowed. C acted in self-defence.
