D told P a joke that her husband was smashed up with 2 broken legs. This was fake and had a violent shock on Ps nervous system, for weeks. She had no pre-disposition to nervous shock
Can P recover for nervous shock?
You can recover for nervous shock even if no physical injury was suffered
A person who makes a false statement intended to be acted on must make good the damage naturally resulting from its being acted on.
Here D did intend to do something to cause harm to P:
1. D acted voluntarily
2. D intended to produce harm
3. P must have experiences demonstrable damage
4. P is not particularly susceptible to harm
Judgment for P
