Wayne is lacing up his skates at the local rink when some older boys begin a hockey game. Wayne, an avid hockey fan, asks to play and he is put on one of the teams. During the game, while he is skating after the puck, Mark, a member of the opposing team checks Wayne into the boards. The check is a hard one and Wayne leaves the game with a sprained knee. If Mark argues consent in an action for battery against him, Wayne will probably:
Choice 1 Win, because Mark intentionally hit Wayne
Choice 2 Win, because Wayne had to leave the game
Choice 3 Lose, because Wayne joined the game voluntarily
Choice 4 Lose, because Wayne should have gotten out of Mark’s way

Dr. Romano is called into surgery to perform a routine bypass operation. During the surgery, Dr. Romano notices that the patient has a large birthmark on his leg. Thinking that the birthmark could become cancerous in the future, Dr. Romano removes the birthmark. When the patient wakes up and discovers what Dr. Romano has done, he sues for battery. If Dr. Romano argues consent, the patient will probably:
Choice 1 Win, because the patient liked the birthmark
Choice 2 Win, because Dr. Romano was only supposed to perform heart surgery
Choice 3 Lose, because Dr. Romano helped the patient by removing the birthmark
Choice 4 Lose, because the patient was already in surgery when Dr. Romano removed  the birthmark
