Project 1

Legal Memorandum

Your assignment is to write a three to five page legal memo analyzing the fact pattern below. You are to discuss the parties and relevant issues in a thorough analysis. These issues deal with tort and Constitutional law. This is not an exercise in memory. Lawyers refer to resources all of the time when they are researching their legal problem. Use the course resources, weekly cases and case summaries to your advantage!

I am not as interested in your outcome (who will end up winning in court) as I am in how you use the law to support your conclusion. Base your answer only on the facts given. This Project focuses on the material assigned for Weeks 1-3 only.

Please analyze and address the questions (Two parts, I and II) regarding the following case scenario:

Case Scenario: Shoppers Mart, Inc., a large retail super market store that sells a variety of products, has had an eventful couple of weeks.

Part I:

There have been heavy rains in the area all week. On Wednesday, a ceiling tile that had become wet from a leaking roof in Shoppers Mart due to the heavy rain storms earlier in the week fell and hit some bags of peanuts causing the nuts to spill across the store aisle. Nicole, a customer, entered the aisle, slipped on the peanuts and broke her leg and arm. The manager of Shoppers Mart was unaware of the leaking roof and the wet ceiling tile and unaware that the peanuts had spilled onto the store floor.

Part II.

On Friday, a small group of political protestors carrying signs and quietly chanting were marching back and forth the full length of the public sidewalk in front of Shoppers Mart. Shoppers Mart encompasses the entire block by the public sidewalk with entry and exit doors located directly in the center of the store building, and with privately owned parking in the back of the store. Sometimes the protestors were at either of the two ends of the sidewalk in front of Shoppers Mart, and thus, not directly in front of the entry/exit door doors to Shoppers Mart. The protestors did not walk on or enter the private parking lot owned by Shoppers Mart; the protestors did not stop and congregate in front of the store or its entry/exit doors at any time. The management of Shoppers Mart believed that the protestors were impeding the ingress and egress of customers into Shoppers Mart end therefore interfering with business. Shoppers Mart called the police to have the protestors removed.

The police did not arrest the protestors but did require them to stop marching and move away from Shoppers Mart.

Assignment

Part I:

A. How likely is Nicole to win a negligence case against Shoppers Mart for her injuries resulting from slipping on the peanuts? Why?

B. Consider whether any, legal defense(s) could be raised by Shoppers Mart. Are any legal defenses likely to be successful in negating liability for Shoppers Mart? Why or why not? (Tip: Stick only to the facts in the case, do not assume any facts not given.)

Part II:

A. The protestors want to sue the City for violation of their constitutional rights. Specifically, what legal claim could the protestors sue for and why?

B. Could the protestors be convicted of trespassing against Shoppers Mart? Why or why not?

Instructions:

Write a 3-5 page paper in response to the fact scenario provided below. The paper must be double-spaced and include a list of work cited (not included in the page count). You may use outside sources for this paper but you are not required to. All of the information you need to complete this paper is provided in the course materials. However, you still need to include in-text citations when you use any source in this paper. The paper must be submitted into your Assignment folder.

Fact Scenario – Part 1:

Contractors, Inc. contracted with Your College to build a 20-room, 2-story classroom building, constructed of gray bricks, and according to architectural specifications provided by Your College. The building is to be located on campus at the corner of Campus Way and Academic Avenue at a contract cost of $5,000,000, and to be completed by August 1, 2016. This August 1 deadline would give Your College just enough time to move into the building and prepare the inside for classes to begin August 14. Your College informed Contractors that time was of the essence and that this is a tight timeline for moving into the new building.

The valid, written contract read, in part, as follows:

CONTRACT

We, the undersigned, party of the first part, hereinafter Your College, and party of the second part, hereinafter Contractors, Inc. hereby agree to the following:

1) Contractors, Inc. will build a 20-room, 2-story classroom building constructed of gray bricks, at the corner of Campus Way and Academic Avenue, in accordance with the architectural specifications stipulated by Your College and attached hereto and in compliance with Maryland building codes and regulations for new construction;

2) Contractors, Inc. will complete the construction project at a total cost of $5,000,000, inclusive;

3) Contractors, Inc. will complete the construction project not later than August 1, 2016. Time is of the essence.

YourCollege will pay Contractors, Inc. for the completed project, the sum of $5,000,000 not later than August 7, 2016.

Fact Scenario – Part 2

On May 28, 2016, after the construction was more than half completed, the cost of bricks used for construction of the building increased substantially in the marketplace so that Contractors could no longer construct the building for $5,000,000. Contractors told YourCollege that it would need an additional $250,000 to complete the building using gray bricks on the exterior. YourCollege agreed to modify the original contract to increase the construction costs by $250,000, bringing the total cost of the project to $5,250,000.

YourCollege and Contractors drew up the following contract modification as an addendum to the original contract:

CONTRACT ADDENDUM

We, the undersigned, party of the first part, hereinafter YourCollege, and party of the second part, hereinafter Contractors, Inc. hereby agree to the following modification to the original agreement:

1) In addition to the contractual agreed upon cost of $5,000,000, YourCollege will pay Contractors, Inc. an additional $250,000 to build a 20-room, 2-story classroom building constructed of gray bricks, at the corner of Campus Way and Academic Avenue;

2) YourCollege will pay Contractors, Inc. for the completed project, the sum of $5,250,000 not later than August 7, 2016;

3) This modification does not in any way change any other terms of the original contract (attached hereto).

After the contract modification, Contractors continued to work on the building but did not meet the August 1 completion deadline. The building was completed on August 21, 2016.

In the meantime, fall semester classes began at YourCollege on August 14, making it necessary for YourCollege to lease classroom space from August 14-September 4, 2016. YourCollege necessarily had to hold classes in the leased space for 3 weeks until September 4 because it took 2 weeks (from August 21) for YourCollege to move into the new building and prepare it for classes. The lease costs were $5,000 per week, for a total of $15,000 for 3 weeks.

YourCollege paid Contractors $5,000,000 on September 4, but refused to pay the additional $250,000. YourCollege filed suit against Contractors for breach of contract.

Contractors countersued YourCollege for breach of contract.

Part I: Discuss the basis of a breach of contract claim by YourCollege against Contractors, any potential damages YourCollege could claim and the likely outcome of a lawsuit.

Part II: Discuss the basis of a breach of contract claim of Contractors against YourCollege, any potential damages Contractors could claim and the likely outcome of a lawsuit.

Specific Directions – Essay

Answer each question in complete paragraphs; do not list or answer in phrases (points will be deducted for doing so). None of these questions can be adequately/comprehensively answered in just a paragraph, so be comprehensive, in depth in your answers, but be careful to not include irrelevant information.

You should use good business writing which includes HEADINGS AND SUB-HEADINGS to guide your reader. Long rambling paragraphs without focus is not good business writing. Points will be deducted for failing to use good business writing. If the question is multiple parts (A and B), you must answer each section separately. Label it.

Points will be deducted for answers that are not well justified, not sufficiently comprehensive.

Use APA for in-text citations, as appropriate but please do not use direct quotes. Use only classroom notes/comment and assigned reading or watching materials as resources, which is all you need to complete the exam.

DO NOT use any outside, internet resources as they are often inaccurate.

Answer all parts of each question. Be sure to directly answer the question(s) asked.

Submit exam preferably in word doc to assignment folder under “Final Exam”.
