 [Hague-jur-commercial-law] What exactly are "delicts"????
Just as US law will recognise different circumstances as torts from those recognised as torts in English law, so Scots law recognises different circumstances as delicts from those recognised as torts in English law.
To answer your example, the delict of nuisance would cover unsocial acts that do not result in damages to the person who sues.

Delict is the area of the law which governs the obligation to refrain from wrongful conduct which may harm the interests of another, and the duty to compensate one who is harmed as a result of your wrongful conduct.
Unlike intentional delicts, where a delictual act relates to a single individual, there is potential for a careless act to cause harm to a wide range of individuals.
Strict liability delicts arise where the harming of the interests of an individual are sufficient for the existence of delictual liability, regardless of the intentions or the negligence of the individual who causes the harm.

 Glossary: Maxims of the Global Covenant
Since the penalty for a gross delict is justifiably retribution, and since retribution is the penalty specified in Genesis 9:6, we are certain that the jural compact has subject matter jurisdiction over gross delicts.
Since positive law is law imposed by humans upon humans, and since the mandate against perpetration of a delict is the global covenant's only global obligation that has a penalty to be executed by humans; this obligation to avoid perpetration of a delict is the only obligation that comes close to being positive law.
Because the mandate against any delict is accompanied by a penalty, it may appear that the many jural compacts inherently mandated to exist in each new nation created by the disintegration of the Babel project, would have teeth, compared to the obligations that incur no penalty.

The Commission's distinction between crimes and delicts was not justified, since the difference in consequences for the two types of wrongful acts were minor.
BRANIMIR ZAIMOV (Bulgaria) said the distinction between crimes and delicts had to be based on the seriousness of their consequences and on the extent of the material, legal and moral injury they caused to other States and to the international community.

 Brief Introduction of the Penal Code of Macao   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
Because of the reason that the criminal law must be specific in defining crimes and criminal delicts, the criminal law is prohibited from using terms of analogy in incrimination.
After determining the types of corresponding penalties and security measures for crimes and criminal delicts, legislators must determine the maximum and minimum limits on penalties or security measures in accordance with the most serious and slightest forms of execution of crimes and criminal delicts as well as their danger of damage or damage imaginable.
In other words, the pretexts for penalties for crimes and security measures for criminal delicts and the legal consequences of crimes and criminal delicts must firstly be defined by law before the penalties and security measures are applied by judicial authorities.

 Introduction to the Theological Inventory & Preamble to the Constitution
Delicts are divided into two overriding classes, gross and subtle, based primarily on the type of remedy or punishment suited to the delict.
Subtle delicts are punished/remedied by restitution or injunction.
Even though it may be an action brought by a private citizen, it still falls within the scope and purview of the jural society, because the jural society's whole function is the protection of property rights.

 [19 Oct 1995] GA/L/2869 : LEGAL COMMITTEE CONTINUES DISCUSSION OF STATE RESPONSIBILITY, LIABILITY
Today the Committee was expected to continue debate on the topics of State responsibility and of international liability for injurious consequences arising out of acts not prohibited by international law (chapters IV and V of the report, respectively).
Regarding State responsibility, the report states that the notion of a "State crime" remained controversial, and distinction between the notions of "crimes" and "delicts" was discussed.
UMBERTO LEANZA (Italy) said that in drawing a distinction between international delicts and crimes, the Commission had made clear that violations of certain profound obligations were internationally wrongful acts entitled to their own legal regime.

If, for instance, shareholders or creditors of a joint stock company want to lodge a claim against a leading member of this form of undertaking, they make a private claim, whereas according to modern legal opinion, only the state is entitled to a demand for punishment.
According to whether a so called delict produces such a claim or merely a claim for compensation for damage suffered by the person concerned, these delicts are called crimes, criminal offenses (delicta publica), or private delicts (delicta privata).
Although both these types of so called delicts constitute legal offenses and therefore must have been committed unlawfully and culpably, they still differ in their legal consequences i.

 Crimes of State and the 1996 Report of the International Law Commission on State Responsibility
The idea of a distinction between `normal' state delicts and delicts which are `grave', `aggravated,' or `criminal' was not new
Equally clearly, it was assumed that the consequences would be more serious than in the case of ordinary delicts.
Otherwise there was little point in distinguishing between ordinary delicts and crimes, if the consequences were to be the same.

 Sexual Abuse Definition   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
Rather, the transgressions in question relate to obligations arising from divine commands regarding human sexual interaction as conveyed to us by the sixth commandment of the Decalogue (CIC, c.
1453 §1.) Thus, the norm to be considered in assessing an allegation of sexual abuse of a minor is whether conduct or interaction with a minor qualifies as an external, objectively grave violation of the sixth commandment (USCCB, Canonical Delicts Involving Sexual Misconduct and Dismissal from the Clerical State, 1995, p.6).
Ultimately, it is the responsibility of the diocesan bishop/eparch, with the advice of a qualified review board, to determine the gravity of the alleged act.

It is to be kept in mind that an Instruction of this kind had the force of law since the Supreme Pontiff, according to the norm of can.

With this apostolic letter, issued motu proprio, we have completed this work and we hereby promulgate the Norms concerning the more grave delicts reserved to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, which Norms are divided in two distinct parts, of which the first contains Substantive Norms, and the second Procedural Norms.
