This week, we are discussing Chapter 9 – Business Torts. In the lecture slides I discuss a very famous case not mentioned in the book – Pennzoil Co. v. Texaco, Inc., 481 U.S. 1 (U.S. 1987).
An interesting article can be found about it here: https://www.nytimes.com/1987/12/19/business/pennzoil-texaco-fight-raised-key-questions.html(Links to an external site.)
Your discussion board assignment this week is to find a unique (meaning not found in the book, or by another student) case or news article that touches on a business-related tort lawsuit.
After you find the case, then please:
1 -summarize it for the discussion board giving the details of the case and its outcome, if known;
2 – identify the tort, and discuss its elements (you may have to do some additional research), at issue in your case/article; and
3 – discuss if you think the plaintiff or defendant should prevail based on your reading and what you have learned in the course.
Again, please do not use the same case/article as another student.
