If so, explain. Yes, WIRETIME, Inc. has committed a tort called tortious interference with a contract. They caused a contracting party to commit a breach of contract. They induced Janet to not fulfill her contract by interfering for their own benefit. Janet can prove that the third-party interferer acted intentionally, by their actions and the contractual breach (which they were aware of).
Chestnut contended that Mr. Reeves was terminated for inaccurate record keeping. Actions taken against Mr. Reeves were not in compliance with the federal employment laws: prima facie case of discrimination, sufficient evidence for the trier of fact to disbelieve the respondent’s nondiscriminatory explanation and the respondent’s explanation for his decision was pre-textual. Mr. Reeves was able to prove that the stated reasons was not the real reason for his discharge and age discrimination was the real reason for termination. REEVES v. SANDERSON A prima-facie case is a lawsuit that alleges facts adequate to prove the underlying conduct supporting the cause of action and thereby prevail. Sanderson stated that their reason for terminating Mr. Reeves was due to inaccurate record keeping.
Marilyn v. Smitty Can Marilyn assert a defamation claim against Smitty, and will she be successful. Defamation: Any intentional false communication, either written or spoken, that harms a person's reputation; decreases the respect, regard, or confidence in which a person is held; or induces disparaging, hostile, or disagreeable opinions or feelings against a person. Defamation may be a criminal or civil charge. It encompasses both written statements, known as libel, and spoken statements, called slander. In this case Marilyn has asserted a claim against Smitty based on defamation.
Defamation- A statement that gives a negative impression of a person, company, group, product, government, or country. Libel/Slander? Slander and libel are both types of defamation, which refers to statements that damage another person's reputation. While there are similarities, each focuses on different types of defamation strategy. The primary difference between slander and libel is that libel is the written or otherwise printed public defamation of a person or entity, while slander is the spoken defamation of a person or entity.
Paycheck Penalty The paycheck penalty is a resolution that should be applicable to any congressman who stall or delay the great legislation process. Any congressman who stalls or delay any proposals due to their pride or stubbornness shall have their paycheck stalled or delayed. Withheld wages should or would encourage all congressmen to push the great legislation process as the forefathers intended. Year in and year out the tactics that “other people” use is only getting worse. This resolution should encompass salaries getting delayed even as long as an ordinary recess.
The types of intentional torts implicated here are battery and fraud. The former (fraud) is defined as “the intentional and harmful or offensive touching of another without his consent.” The latter (fraud) is defined as a “knowing misrepresentation”; a false statement of material fact that was knowingly or recklessly made by the defendant with the intent to induce reliance by the plaintiff. Punitive damages, which are designed to punish the defendant and deter all other potential defendants in the marketplace, are awarded to plaintiffs above and beyond their actual damages. In cases of intentional torts (i.e., when there is findings of wilfullness, maliciousness, or recklessness), punitive damage awards will be upheld provided they meet the ranges/ratios of punitive damages to actual damages, set forth in recent U.S. Supreme Court cases (BMW and State Farm). APPLICATION: Here, there was substantial evidence that the defendant, Motel knew of the widespread existence of bedbugs in their rooms.
I don’t think this was ethical. I don’t think information discussed in a board should be discussed or brought to the media unless they are doing something illegal. Without honesty and trust these board members will also have these issues. I think policies and consequences should handle situations like this. Someone should not be able to show dishonesty, lack of respect or unethical decisions and still be a part of that
Some of the security weaknesses noted in the case study includes the fact that Sony was using an older version of software (Apache Web Server) which had known security issues. This impaired the security of their firewall, allowing hackers to get in. As for control weaknesses, there were obviously not the appropriate policies or organizational procedures in place, since Sony did not know what information was stolen from their servers, the fact that it took days for Sony to inform their customers of the breach immediately shows a lack of training of their management and staff and also Sony’s delay in shutting down all of their servers at the point when they learned of the attack. If the proper policies and organizational procedures were in place, perhaps it would not have been as dramatic for Sony. 2.
It seems clear that if one individual harms another, through whatever means, it makes it more difficult for the harmed individual to carry out parts of their “life-plan”. According to Mill, this is where intervention should occur. This is not a valid way of exercising your autonomy because you are putting the autonomy of other individuals at risk. This is what constitutes harm. However, the state or any other individual has no grounds to intervene if you’re not seen to harm others.
A televised plea from Rodney King to end the chaos led to the end of the riot (Smith, 2002). Groupthink becomes the major reason for these actions. Groupthink is defined as occurring “when a group makes faulty decisions because group pressures lead to a deterioration of mental efficiency, reality testing, and moral judgment. Groups affected by groupthink ignore alternatives and tend to take irrational actions” (PsySR, n.d., para. 1).
