The Misfits – Where Eagles Dare

“Defendant, seeing plaintiff on a city street, reviled her at the top of his lungs in the presence of bystanders and others who assembled, calling her a God damned son of a bitch, a dirty crook, and other similar epithets, which he repeated several times. Plaintiff was seven months pregnant at the time, and her condition was sufficiently obvious to the defendant; and she claimed that the verbal attack was made for the purpose of causing her physical injury.”

Bartow v. Smith, 78 N.E.2d 735 (1948) cited in Prosser’s Insult and Outrage (1956).
