The leading Louisiana intentional tort case of Bazley v. Tortorich, 397 So.2d 475 (La.1981) provides the definition of intent for intentional torts. To have committed an intentional tort, the defendant must consciously desire to bring about the physical results of his act or believe they were substantially certain to follow from what he did.
There are several specific intentional torts such as battery, assault, false imprisonment, malicious prosecution, intentional infliction of emotional distress, retaliatory discharge, trespass to land, trespass to chattels, conversion and fraud.
