    Today lecture taught about Battery. She said that any application of force on defendant will be sufficient but note in the case of Pursell v Horn, the act of throwing water is water if the water splash onto the defendant's body, no battery if the water splash on the defendant's cloth.
    I would like to know the facts, what the court had held and the ratio of it. I tried to google the case but it doesn't help. Anyone?

    I have the access to westlaw and lexis library. But I have difficulties in reading the judgment and search for the ratio of the case. I read through the case and I think what my lecture said was true.

    That's part of reading law though - I hate it too but sometimes you have to read the judgement and work it out rather than getting someone to tell you
