¡°By injuria (or outrage), as the fourth ground of delict obligation, is meant some affronting wrong, calculated to wound the self-respect and touch the honor of the person injured, to humiliate or degrade him in the view of others.¡± James Hadley, Introduction to Roman Law 243 (1881).
¡°The term injuria [is best] used in its original and proper sense of wrong (in jus, contrary to law). The modern use of ¡®injury¡¯ as a synonym for damage is unfortunate but inveterate.¡± R.F.V. Heuston, Salmond on the Law of Torts 13 nn.51¨C52 (17th ed. 1977).
