California Civil Code states:
Any necessary force may be used to protect against undue harm to a person or property to himself, or to a wife, husband, child, parent or other relative or family member or a congregation, servant, master or guest. (California Civil Code § 50)
The person must reasonably believe that there is danger and must use only the force that is reasonably necessary.
Defense against the battery – Use of lethal force
Lethal force or force that is likely to cause bodily harm is not justified just to protect property. Spring guns or other lethal mechanical devices should only be used if lethal force is justified. Deadly force can be used against a faulty tracer.
Use of Reasonable Force
This is always a defense. For example:
- holds the arms of a violent person behind his back;
- strikes a dog on the way to attack a child;
- holds a person who intentionally beats a child; or
- escort a trustee from the premises.
Defense against Defamation, including Libel and Defamation
Defense Against False Prison
Reasonable deprivation of liberty without arrest is a legal privilege codified by California Penal Code § 490.5 (f) (1). For example, a warehousekeeper who believes that theft has been committed may imprison the suspect for a reasonable period of time.
Defense of champerty and maintenance
The use of venture capital to finance disputes has been tolerated in many states because defendants often have more resources available than injured plaintiffs. Recently, the Supreme Court of Ohio and some others have questioned whether such arrangements violate the traditional rule of champerty and maintenance.
