Question 6



  1.  


ABC Sales Corporation wants to protect its customer lists as legally protected trade secrets. Accordingly, it should:


Answer

Question 7



  1.  


Poole Company enters into a contract to build a pool for homeowner for $20,000. During the construction process, Poole discovers the remnants of a big, old, partially buried, tree trunk on the property. Poole can remove it but it will add additional time and cost to the project. Accordingly, Poole asks homeowner for an extra $1000 to complete the job, which homeowner reluctantly agrees to. When the tree trunk is removed and the job is finished, Homeowner only pays the original $20,000. Poole Company sues for the promised additional $1000. The likely result of the lawsuit will be:


Answer






















 



Poole will prevail since homeowner clearly breached the promise to pay $1000.



 



Poole will prevail since it is a fair result since everyone knows how difficult it is to remove old tree trunks.



 



Poole will prevail since $1000 was very reasonable consideration under the circumstances.



 



Poole will lose as it gave no new consideration for the promise to pay the additional $1000.

Question 8



  1.  


Chavez is a manager of X Corporation. Another company asks for a recommendation about a former employee of X, Burke, who is now applying for a job. The reference is sent to the new potential employer, where it is received and read by the HR director. It is very negative, and truthful in most respects, but inaccurate to some degree about Burke's attendance record. Burke does not get the job and sues Chavez for the tort of defamation. The likely result of such a lawsuit will be:


Answer






















 



Burke will lose since the recommendation was not published to more people at the new potential employer.



 



Burke will prevail since he has been falsely maligned in part in the reference.



 



Burke will prevail since Chavez interfered with Burke's livelihood.



 



Burke will lose since Chavez typically would be protected by a conditional or qualified privilege assuming that that Chavez did not act with malice or bad faith.

Question 9



  1.  


Louie, Hughie, Dewey, and Daffy Duck formed a partnership. Since they had a lot in common and were good friends and had high hopes, they did not include in their partnership agreement a provision pertaining to the expulsion of a partner.

Answer






















 



There is no legal effect on the partnership since majority rules.



 



Daffy can dissolve the partnership and force a liquidation and termination.



 



The partnership is dissolved, and, with Daffy's agreement, he is paid his interest in the partnership, and the partnership continues with Louie, Hughie, and Dewey.

There are no problems, and Juana does her regular job; but when Zorro discovers the child was at work, he fires Juana. Juana wants to sue for wrongful discharge. What will be the likely result of her lawsuit?


Answer






















 



She will prevail since she clearly was treated unethically and there were no problems and Juana is a single mother.



 



She will prevail since she is protected by the federal Family Medical Leave Act.



 



She will lose since she was an employee at-will.



 



She will prevail since she was discriminated against because of her and her daughter's gender and because she was a parent.

Question 20



  1.  


Susan and her neighbors who live in an older, working-class neighborhood had their homes seized by the city pursuant to eminent domain since the city wants to turn the property over to a big private developer who plans to build a mall, thereby increasing the tax base of the city. Susan and her neighbors have been evicted; but they are promised "fair market value" for their homes. However, they want to stay in their homes. They sue the city for acting in an unconstitutional manner. The likely result of that lawsuit would be:


Answer






















 



Susan and her neighbors will win since the city seized their properties merely for a mall and not something major like an airport extension.



 



Susan and her neighbors will win because the city did not use the properties itself but turned them over to a private developer.



 



Susan and her neighbors will win since under the old common law, "An Englishman's home is his castle," and thus government cannot constitutionally seize private property.



 



Susan and her neighbors will lose, assuming they receive fair market value for their properties, since the city acted in a constitutional manner.

You should receive credit for number 20. My answer reflects the state of the law as it is today and your professor agrees. The question does not ask about the state of the law in the past.
