Weld-Blundell -v- Stephens; HL 1920

Lord Sumner said: ‘In general, even though A is in fault, he is not responsible for injury to C which B, a stranger to him, deliberately chooses to do. Though A may have given the occasion for B’s mischievous activity, B then becomes a new and independent cause.’
