The partners of DDS sued Goodman to hold him liable for the renovation contracts. Goodman denied personal liability. In this case, there is an issue that involves a promoter (Goodman), which is a person who organizes and starts a corporation, finds the initial investors to finance the corporation and so on. Promoters often enter into contracts on behalf of a corporation prior to its actual incorporation. As occurred in this case by the fact that the incorporation would be filed until November 1.
Executive Summary Kenneth Jones, the president of Viscotech, has a handful of regulatory issues to resolve before moving any further with operations. Ideally, the company would have considered SEC regulations before raising the $976,000 in December 1997 from 34 investors through the MIFT pool. Most importantly, Viscotech was desperate for money, so they did not notify the SEC, and accepted money for securities offered under Regulation A, which had not been finalized by the SEC staff. Viscotech advertised the MIFT as a trust, when it appears to be a contract to buy securities at a future date, but we argue that the security vehicle is exempt under Regulation A (see Exhibit 1) for the following reasons. Under the Securities Act of 1933, the MIFT does not automatically fall into the category of exempt securities, so the company must still file a offering statement with the SEC to avoid penalties.
Congress reiterated in Section 3(c)(1)(D)(ii) of FIFRA that EPA should make administrative decisions about how much money these manufacturers would get for damages from loss of their trade secrets. Union Carbide sued because they felt that the decisions should be made by the judicial court, not an administrative agency. The U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York held that the claims challenging the arbitration provisions were ripe for decision and that those provisions violated Article III. Standing was approved for all appellants, who took a direct appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court. Facts: Section 3(c)(1)(D)(ii) of FIFRA authorizes EPA to consider certain previously submitted data only if the "follow-on" and registrant has offered to compensate the original registrant for use of the data.

Sunoco is probably going to be held strictly liable for the clean-up costs, even though it appears that the leak occurred prior to his purchase of the property. However, as in White, where the present owner was able to sue a previous owner who had actually caused and contributed to the discharge, under §181(1) and §181(5) Mr. Sunoco may be able to apportion his liability. Although there is no definitive time frame as to when the leak occurred, the odds that it occurred the same day Mr. Sunoco purchased the gas station is astronomical. Therefore, it is likely that the USTs have been leaking since Mr. Tesoro was the owner, allowing Mr. Sunoco to sue Mr. Tesoro in strict liability for cleanup costs and damages to the community. Further, Mr. Sunoco may also be able to share liability and sue Lukoil, since Lukoil is the present operator of the gas station and further contributed to the USTs leaking by failing to properly reconcile the UST measurements and concealing this information from Mr.
Oil profits have been the motivating factors behind many attempts at counterinsurgency of democratic regimes by the CIA and the U.S in the Middle East (such as Iran in the 1950s, where the Shah replaced the Prime Minister who refused to give up oil rights to the U.S., and since the people couldnt deal with the Shah, an extremist government headed by the Ayatollah Khomeini ultimately prevailed). During the Iran-Iraq war, America supplied both sides with weapons and advice. These are not the actions of a rich superpower wanting peace. Lets not forget that Saddam Hussein, before being Americas vision of the Anti-Christ, was a close ally of the U.S., and the CIA. So what was the firm belief system of consecutive American administrations that caused all this to occur ?
Question 1. If I had been called by the Lincoln Hospital president to resolve the problems described by the case, I would change several things. The case is not very descriptive of the contracting process between the OD consultant and the hospital president. It started describing the communication between the president and the OD consultant, and the latter had no chance to contact the OR director Mary of the new surgery chief Don that were directly involved in the conflict (Boss et al, 1990). The problem was only overviewed by the president, and the expectation of the OD consultant was that he will eventually find the roots of Don-Mary malfunction and resolve them successfully.

Signed_____________________________________________________________ Print Name and Surname ______________________________________________ Date_______________________________________________________________ Author: Alicia Peters 8106230071083 Executive Summary In this case study introduction is given to the manager of the Packard Electrical Division of General Motors who is handed over the task of opening a new manufacturing plant in Mexico in the interest of gaining good standing in the international markets. Jim is expected to restore an old warehouse and begin producing wiring harnesses and adhere to the NUMMI standards. Many of the operations are done on a hasty, adhoc basis and a team is brought in to teach management about requirements yet staff is not trained adequately before the project begins. The case study shows that none of the management had the required experience to run the plant, a deficiency in communication due to language barriers as well as a poorly equipped, dilapidated plant that had to be restored in a hasty manner. There is no indication that project management principals were implemented and therefore failure to comply and meet with requirements lead to huge capacities of waste of money, time and poor resource management.
