Case # 1 – A Brawl in Mickey's Backyard
1)What is the issue in this case?
There is a dispute between workers at Disney, SunCal the developer, social & environmental activists from one side “First Group” and Disney Incorporation, Business Groups & Chamber of Commerce on the other side “Second Group”.
