Grimshaw and Gray’s heirs sued Ford motor company based on theories of negligence and strict liability, alleging that the defendants knew from pre-manufacturing crash tests regarding the design flaws with the fuel system (Grimshaw v. Ford Motor Company, 1981). Legal Analysis In order to remain competitive in the subcompact market, Ford began designing an automobile which ultimately became the Pinto. The Pinto project was a rush project and there were several design flaws (Ford Pinto, 2012, para. 1). The Ford Pinto had a questionable design from the beginning.
ANALYSIS -The court of Appeals found out that Alexander was negligent because he failed to check the Hairston’s car which was on the road. The article states “These negligent acts of Alexander -- new and independent of any negligent acts of Haygood -- constitute the proximate cause of injury and the death of plaintiff's intestate, and the negligence of Haygood was shielded by the subsequent acts of negligence by Alexander." Therefore, the Alexander’s act of crashing the Hairston’s car considered to be a proximate cause of injury and death. CONCLUSION -The decision had reversed and remanded because of the entry of judgment in agreement with the jury’s
By not mentioning other companies that use the same tactics, he puts a negative image on Nike alone instead of all American companies who choose to outsource manufacturing to foreign countries. I think it’s kind of ironic that Mr. Ballinger is doing research on ethical practices of American companies when he himself is using an unethical approach to his research. Another fact that he fails to mention is that what Nike is doing is not illegal. Unethical, yes, but due to weak policies in some of these foreign companies, it allows for American, or any other nation’s companies, to exploit these practices. Also, why doesn’t he mention anything about the retailers who sell Nike shoes?
(4) Staging an accident is Insurance Fraud, a third degree felony punishable by a maximum of seven years imprisonment. (5) And working with others to stage an accident is Conspiracy to Commit Insurance Fraud, an equally serious crime. (6) DiLacqua had turned two traffic offenses into four crimes, two of them felonies. Because the reported accident involved a Police Department vehicle, the dispatcher had to notify the Department's Accident Investigation Division (AID). Two AID investigators soon arrived and DiLacqua told them the story he had prepared, with Brady and the two officers standing by.
For example in all of the Beatles album it shows fake Paul looking the other way while all the other Beatles look in the same direction. What might really surprise you is that in some of the songs if you play the song backwards it tells you a message about Paul’s car crash. In the song Revolution 9, when you play the tape backwards it says a message, “ turn me on dead man”. On every single album that the Beatles put out after Paul’s death had a clue about Paul’s tragic accident. Another evidence that proves that Paul really did get in a car accident and died was the queen of England.
Could our government have masterminded this horrific crime? Actually, I believe they did, I personally believe that the World Trade Center, Pentagon, and the crashing of Flight 93 does not accurately add up to it’s ashes. On September 11, 2001 the media/government reported that terrorists hi-jacked two U.S. commercial airplanes that struck the World Trade Center. Although how could the terrorist successively pass through security and board a plane with weapons, especially after the D.B. Cooper incident?
Isaul M. Montez Samantha Burke Business Law I MG260 30 November 2014 Blanket Protection Who is Liable For Firearms Negligence? The onslaught of horrific incidents of gun violence over the last year has created within the general public a fiercely debated topic of liability. Should victims of these crimes have recourse against anyone other than the perpetrator of the criminal act? The issue of whether the civil justice system should respond to these incidents is not a new topic. Over a decade ago courtrooms were saturated with litigation seeking to hold firearms manufacturers and distributors liable for damages resulting from the illegal use of their product.
The Company was a success from the beginning. The Ford Motor Company was a threat for the Association of Licensed Automobile Manufactures; which now threatened to put his company out of business, because Ford was not a licensed manufacture. He had been denied a license by this group, which was aimed at protecting its members, profits what was becoming a fast growing industry. Their basis of their power was control of a patent granted in 1895 to George Baldwin Seldon a patent attorney from Rochchester, New York. The Associations claimed that their patent applied to all gasoline powered engines.
In this specific situation he didn’t have much of a choice considering stakeholders priorities that must’ve been handled by top executives; corporate environment is dealing with the pyramid scheme so I feel McKinnell did what any top businessperson would do in tough situation. So even though some may think he tried to ‘blackmail’ the Michigan legislature and governor by his statements, I believe he just chose wrong words to use and should’ve sympathized more with the people of Kalamazoo. McKinnell seemed to have been motivated by top executives that he was goal-determined to say whatever he thought was best. If I were in Mr. McKinnell’s place I would have probably done the same thing. I might have been more sympathetic and maybe tried to offer them compensation for about 3 months for them to find another job (with the consent of
