Innes v Wylie 
- A police officer was blocking a doorway
- The claimant ran into him and bounced off, suffering personal injury
- Could a claim in either battery or false imprisonment succeed?
- In the battery claim, there was no intent, nor an act; the act was of the claimant
- In the false imprisonment claim, the officer had just omitted to move, so had again not acted
- Both claims therefore failed
