    Context

    The Basis of Tort Law

    One of the most important concepts of the law is the notion that if one party damages another in a noncriminal context, then the aggrieved party is entitled to restitution, to be made whole. In a business law context, making another party whole (note: this is a fairly common term that you will hear again and again in a legal context) is the entire purpose of tort law. In other words, a judge or jury will attempt to determine exactly what needs to be done when an aggrieved party can demonstrate damages, and what those damages should be, in order to return a party to its state prior to the alleged action.SHOW LESSVirtually all commercial enterprises deal with the public at some point, providing products, services, or any sort of commercially relevant activities. The risk of inflicting even unintentional damages on consumers thus exposes commercial concerns to lawsuits and litigation.Criminal penalties cannot be attached to business entities. If a crime is committed, the government charges specific individuals within the corporation who may be responsible, not the business entity. Yet, society recognizes that businesses, out of negligence, ignorance, or malfeasance, may cause injury to another party. Tort law imposes standards by which such injured parties can seek recompense from the corporation in civil court. Whereas an entire corporate entity cannot be tried in a criminal court, it can be a defendant in a civil court.Read the Assessment 6 Context document for important information related to the following topics:

    Questions to Consider

    To deepen your understanding, you are encouraged to consider the questions below and discuss them with a fellow learner, a work associate, an interested friend, or a member of the business community.SHOW LESS

    • Should the owner of a car be liable to a thief for the thief’s injuries, if the stolen car has no brakes?
    • Does someone watching a person being robbed have a duty to help the person being robbed?
    • Should a person who has been careless be liable for all damage caused by his or her carelessness, or should there be limits?
    • Should courts always punish companies that have been careless by awarding large amounts of money to those who have been injured?
    • Are there situations where companies should be liable to those who have been injured, even if the company has not been careless?
    • Tort law permeates society and daily life. Think of a tort issue in your life or in the life of someone close to you. Perhaps you did not pursue litigation, but considering your knowledge of tort law, do you think you should have? Perhaps you pursued litigation and lost. Is it clear why you lost? Specifically, identify the elements of the tort cause of action and apply facts to each element. If the case is not clear cut, it will probably be because an element of a cause of action is not clearly met. If an element of a cause of action is clearly not met, there is not a legitimate cause of action.

  • Assessment Instructions

    For this assessment, you will first select an actual business-related U.S. legal case, pertaining to the topic of U.S. tort law, based on briefly conducting associated research. Based on that, you will then select an organization that you believe would be impacted by that legal case. Having completed both of these tasks, you should assume you’re a senior manager in the organization you selected, and that you were asked to perform an analysis of the legal case and to write an executive briefing for the executive team of that same organization. Your executive briefing should include a summary of the case, as well as an evaluation of how the case impacts the organization.The purpose of this format is two-fold:

    1. To give you the opportunity to research and investigate a real court decision.
    2. To challenge you to think about the business implications of the case, and specifically how the case will impact an actual organization.

    In your case law analysis you must be able to navigate the court’s decision, and summarize and evaluate it. You may choose any business-related court case, either state or federal, as the basis for your case law executive briefing, as long as the case is applicable to the assessment topic. You are expected to conduct your own independent research to locate and evaluate the applicability of cases. A few appropriate case law websites are recommended for you in the Resources, but you are not limited to using cases from these sites.For this assessment, use credible legal research databases and online resources, research federal and state court cases, and select any business-related case that has been decided by a state court, a federal court, or the United States Supreme Court. Then select an organization (potentially the organization for which you work) that you believe the selected case might impact. Write an executive briefing that addresses the following:Research federal and state court cases pertaining to the topic of tort law. Select one court case and write an analysis that addresses the following:

    1. Articulate the context and relevance of law in a business environment:
      • Identify the parties who are before the court.
      • Provide a brief background and context associated with the case. Summarize the facts in no more than 2–3 paragraphs.
      • Identify the specific disagreement between the parties.
      • Explain the ruling of the court and its business relevance in no more than 1–2 paragraphs. Was there a dissenting opinion? If so, explain why some of the judges or justices disagreed with the majority in the decision.
    2. Evaluate the business impact of the case:
      • Summarize your analysis of how the case will impact businesses in general, including both positive and negative impacts.
      • Indicate the organization you selected as potentially impacted by the case and why you selected that organization.
      • Explain how the case will impact the specific organization you selected, such that the executive team will understand the implications of the legal decision.

    Based on your executive audience, your executive briefing should be no more than two pages, and should be well organized and written in clear, succinct language. Follow APA rules for attributing sources that support your analysis and conclusions.

    Academic Integrity and APA Formatting

    As a reminder related to using APA rules to ensure academic honesty:

    1. When using a direct quote (using exact or nearly exact wording), you must enclose the quoted wording in quotation marks, immediately followed by an in-text citation. The source must then be listed in your references page.
    2. When paraphrasing (using your own words to describe a non-original idea), the paraphrased idea must be immediately followed by an in-text citation and the source must be listed in your references page.
