The judge in the Hudson’s Bay Company case awarded the plaintiff damages for surveillance and investigation; this is similar to what is being sought in the Northland Corp v. Brat Simpson, Arty Dodger case, the action against the defendants is for the amount of $750.00 for the “cost of security, prorated between offenders caught shoplifting within the store and the amount owing remains a just debt improperly withheld by the Defendants.” The only reason the judge in the Hudson’s Bay Company case gave for awarding the damages was that, "…the case cries out for an award of punitive damages”. The cost of shoplifting is very high, it cuts into the profit margin of the retailer and is paid for by the consumer. It requires stores to invest in more complex means of security. This could be the reason why the judge in this case felt
Coyote v. Acme is an essay that takes the form of a realistic legal case being brought by the famous Roadrunner cartoon character, Wile E. Coyote, as he files a lawsuit against the infamous manufacturer of those negligent products sold by the defendant; ACME Corp. Anyone who has watched the Roadrunner show is familiar with the long history of poor Wile E. Coyote and his purchase of product after product from ACME that never delivers on his dream to help catch the Roadrunner. From a satirical point of view, reading of Coyote v. Acme, at first, will doubtlessly have you taking it purely as an accusation of a crime committed by the imperfect nature of modern American society. Many of the lawsuits filed in America are attempts by consumers to hold big business accountable because lawmakers and politicians won't do the job, but more than a few have been by people hoping to make money off their own ignorance. Coyote vs. ACME is written in the idiom of a legal document that has been delivered to the court in Tempe, Arizona, complete with a case number and everything.

This reflects a utilitarian stand-point because the wood dust is a serious problem that could lead to serious injury or worse for every member of the company. By reporting this to OSHA it may lead to fines and consequences for my employer and others at the managerial level but not reporting this could lead to the end of every employee. The reason I chose to notify OSHA is because they are a neutral 3rd party whose only role is to ensure the safety and security in an occupational setting along with responding to allegations against the aforementioned employer. OSHA themselves is basically the top-notch you can get to in regard to employee safety, they have governmental backing and an obligation to come check out an allegation and can put up further road blocks for companies if they don’t comply. I am concerned that even the owner doesn’t care enough to ensure the safety and well-being of his employees as he said, “You cannot prove that there is an explosion hazard here.
Unfortunately, Mr. Pickering was removed from his teaching position but he did not stop fighting for his case. (Secunda 2010) The appellant, Marvin Pickering, then requested the review of the Board's action in the Circuit Court of Will County, Illinois, which declared his dismissal on the grounds that his letter was detrimental to the interests of the school system.
