Business law – case study
The case study of John and Stacey has so many complicated elements that apparently all the stakeholders involved apart from the two mentioned could sue or be sued against. This paper assumes that this is the scenario for this paper. The characters involved are John and Stacy, a restaurant owner, the owner of a townhouse, the owner of the mink on which John tripped and subsequently resulted in a hip fracture, a blasting contractor, and the customer who accidently cut an expensive painting.
From John’s point of view:
John apparently took Stacey to an expensive restaurant to impress her. The menu did not quote the prices of the food served in the restaurant, but John thought it was equal to the market price of similar eating places in Oregon. When the bill arrived (which by itself was pricey), the restaurant had charged an additional fifty percent of the price as fixed gratuity. Both the guests found the food to be extremely tasty. He was furious and threatened not to pay the bill. The owner apparently insults John. His problems are not over yet. He makes an apparent with another guest in the restaurant to rent a townhouse for ten thousand dollars which he was not able to comply with due to the circumstances mentioned below. He tripped against a mink coat accidently left on the floor and fractured his hip. John subsequently was ill because of contaminated food provided by the restaurant even though it tasted good. John could have a valid legal support in this regard with regard to willful negligence on the part of the restaurant owner. John was also apparently hit by glass fragments shattered due to the inadvertent mistake of a blasting contractor near to the restaurant. He could again sue the person for injuries caused.
These are the issues faced by John in this case study. The fact the John had written to everyone involved that he had acted
