Business Law Journal Entry

Satisfactory Essays
Journal Entry – Business Law Mr. Robert Menendez has recently raised concerns over his possible unethical behavior while residing as the New Jersey state Senator. There are many moral ethical issues, as well as one particular contract with Dr. Melgen that may be an issue. His poor ethical choices can be related to his possible egoism. (All parties are innocent until proven guilty.) Ethics is the study of an individual’s character with regards to their choices of right and wrong as assumed by the community (Nickels, McHugh, and McHugh 2012). Egoism is a type of behavior that unethically views one’s self-interest with the morality of the organization. Menendez’s use of Dr. Melgen’s personal jet for personal vacation to be reimbursed by the organization and his forceful contract for Dr. Melgen’s port are both examples of this behavior (Rosenthal 2013). Furthermore, the contract regarding the port could potentially be a defective agreement. According to our lecture slides, the United States of America (USA) could be an injured party. The contract, which was forced by Menendez, bind a Dominican Republic firm (which Dr. Melgen was part owner) and the USA regarding port entry. If product that was endangering USA civilians been allowed into the country, the contract would be defective and nulled based on the loss incurred by the USA. The jury will need to find that Robert Menendez knew his actions were wrong and not consistent with ethical principles. If the answer to these questions is yes, Menendez will be found unethical.
