[Extract] Accessory liability arises where a party is involved in another's wrongdoing-the primary wrong- while possessing a sufficient mental state to be held legally culpable. That culpability justifies the accessory (A) being held liable to the claimant (C), alongside the primary wrongdoer (PW), to remedy the consequences of the primary wrong. There does not exist, however, a single unified cause of action, or even approach to, accessory liability in private law. Accessory liability is given effect by multiple doctrines and through different tests and elements of liability. it is often described by different nomenclature.
