Stand Your Ground and Self Defense in Florida by Charnele Tate: American Jurisprudence

33 Am. Jur. Proof of Facts 2d 211

Privileged Use of Force in Self Defense 

The present article is limited to a discussion of the conditions which create the privilege to use force against another for the purpose of protecting the actor from an intentional offensive physical contact. It does not include a discussion of self-defense as a justification for intentional invasions of another's interest in property or personality not involving the use of physical force against that person. Also excluded from the discussion are the related defenses, in an appropriate case, of consent, provocation, defense of third persons and defense of property.
