Hello there

what about #19,20





  1. Gray worked for AT&T. She was accused of falsifying records to create an excuse for her absences and was fired.

The court would be likely to hold that Gray had:

a. no claim; the discussion was in the ordinary course of business

b. no claim because federal legislation allows employers to discuss such work-related matters

c. no claim because all states have statutes that provide protection for employers against such suits, as does the law in most states

e. none of the other choices

The Case

The City of Mt. Kisco is buying houses in order to clear land for a major commercial development to be owned and operated by a private company. This project will generate huge amounts of tax revenue for the city. The last house in the development area is owned by Betty and Billy Loaners who own the house together. The City has offered to buy the house from the Loaners but they have refused to sell so the City has exercised its right of eminent domain. After this offer, Betty has decided to sell but Billy still refuses.

Two questions arise from these facts:

  1. Can the City exercise its right of eminent domain? Why can it for a private development?

  2. If Betty wants to sell and Billy does not, can Betty sell the house anyway? Why?
