October 12, 2009. See Krebs v. Corrigan, 321 A.2d 558 (D.C. 1974), in which the defendant flew three feet off the ground and landed on the plaintiff's plexiglass sculptures, destroying them. The court held that "a person's body usually is within his exclusive control" and that under the doctrine of res ipsa loquitur, the burden was on the defendant to explain why he was flying through the air.

On a different note, I have been informed that it is highly implausible that consumers of iron supplements will be attracted to large magnets. To that, I note the laws of physics in the Tort Bunnies universe are subject to interpretation.
