Business Ethics Case 3.5
1. What kind of paper is the National Enquirer?
The National Enquirer, Inc., is prestigious tabloid corporation with its principal place of business in Florida. This national weekly newspaper has a total circulation of more than 5 million copies. The company sold about 600,000 copies in the state of California; making this state the second largest in sales (Cheeseman, 2010).
2. What it ethical for the National Enquirer to try to avoid suit in California?
The National Enquire decided to try to avoid suit in California, which in my personal opinion it is legal and ethical. The National Enquirer has the principal place of business in Florida, and its president is also a resident (Cheeseman, 2010).
3. Are the defendants subject to suit in California? Why or why not?
The first step is we have to determine if a corporation or a citizen of a state can be sued by court of another state. However this type of cases can be determined by the courts in different jurisdictions such a Quasi in rem. Cheseman (2010) stated “when a plaintiff who obtains a judgment against a defendant in one state may utilize the courts system of another state to attached property of the defendant that is located in the second state” (pp. (e.g., 43-44).
