    The City of Albany decided to upgrade a fleet of repair trucks in order to respond to pothole fixing. ACME manufactured a cab and chassis of a truck that was then sold to Keefer Motors. Keefer Motors sold the truck unchanged to the City of Albany. No discussion by ACME or Keefer Motors had taken place with the City as to what the city would do with the truck. Susan’s Truck Equipment was contracted by the city to add a dump bed and hoist and the truck was modified and redelivered to the City of Albany; the truck was accepted and put into immediate use. Sarah and Emma are city employees and Sarah was injured when Emma backed up the pothole truck over her. Sarah was seriously injured and is suing ACME, Keefer Motors and Susan’s Truck Equipment, arguing that the truck was defective and unreasonably dangerous because the defendants did not advise the City of Albany to install a back-up alarm and they failed to install a back-up alarm.…

    Mrs. Dula McCarty brought suit against Pheasant Run Inc. for negligence. In 1981, Mrs. McCarty was attacked by a man in her hotel room, beaten and threatened of rape. Mrs. McCarty ultimately fought off her attacker and he fled. The attacker was never identified nor brought to justice. Although Mrs. McCarty did not sustain serious physical injuries, she claimed the incident caused prolonged emotional distress which led to an early retirement. An investigation revealed that a sliding glass door, which was concealed behind curtains, was manipulated and enabled the attacker to gain entry into her hotel room. Mrs. McCarty made multiple claims of negligence against Pheasant Run Inc., including that they should have had better locking devices on the sliding door; more security personnel; the walkway to her sliding door inaccessible from the ground level; better over all procedures for dealing with non guests; posting signs telling guests to keep their doors locked at all times.…

    Durkheim defined social facts as things external to, and coercive of, the actor. These are created from collective forces and do not emanate from the individual (Hadden, p. 104).

They cannot be deduced from pure reason or thought, but require a study of history and society in order to observe their effects and understand the nature of these social facts. In The Rules of Sociological Method, Durkheim begins by noting features such as the following (quote 3):…
