This series of videos shows oral argument in the case of White v. Gibbs in which Mrs. Debbie White has sued Patrick Gibbs and O’Malley’s Tavern under the civil provisions of Indiana’s Dram Shop Act, Indiana Code 7.1-5-10-15.5. Because the parties reside in two different states, the suit was brought in diversity in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Indiana, but will be decided under Indiana state law. The defendants have made a motion for summary judgment, seeking judgment as a matter of law in their favor. Mrs. White has responded that summary judgment should not be granted, and that the case should go to trial. Because the argument is being heard on the defendants’ motion, the defendants’ counsel argues first.
The lawsuit arose from an incident when Mrs. White and her husband, Bruno, were having dinner at O’Malley’s Tavern. Mr. Edward Hard, another patron at the tavern that evening and a former paramour of Mrs. White, had a large amount to drink. When Mrs. White and her husband left the tavern, Mr. Hard stumbled out behind them, got in his van, chased the Whites’ car out of the parking lot, and, within approximately half a mile, drove into the side of the Whites’ car, killing Mr. White and injuring Mrs. White. You will hear additional facts as they are argued on the various points of law.
Under Indiana law, in order for Mrs. White to recover damages from the defendants, she must prove:

- The tavern (through Mr. Gibbs, the bartender) had actual knowledge that Mr. Hard was visibly intoxicated when serving Mr. Hard his final drink.
- The tavern serving Mr. Hard was the proximate cause of the crash and Mr. White’s death. This chain of causation can be broken (interrupted) by a criminal act on the part of Mr. Hard.

In a real-life trial court, this type of argument would be presented to one trial court judge. Here, a panel of…...

...department they run. Employees could make decisions, but without a vision (like managers have), it would all be for naught. Managers make all sorts of decisions. They make permanent decisions, on the spot decisions, even decisions that sometimes are not good for the company. Debopriya Bose (2010), states several types of decisions that are made by managerial staff. Buzzle.com (2000-2010) states: Authoritative: In authoritative type of decision making the leader is the sole decision maker which subordinates follow. The leader has all the information and expertise required to make a quick decision. It is important that the leader is a good decision maker as it is he who has to own up to the consequences of his decision. Though effective, in case the leader is an experienced individual, it can harm the organization if the leader insists on an authoritative type of decision making even when there is expertise available within the team. Conclusion Trying to function in the work place without a manager proves to be disastrous. We need leadership in just about all areas of life. A manager is not perfect by any means, but they are trained to lead, and are trained to see and fix problems and come up with solutions which overcome those said problems. Employees play a large part in a manager being a good and/or productive leader. If employees are consistent in their behavior, work ethics, and seeing to it that their work/projects are done on time. The manager would have less......

...DBForum #2 Rachel Suleski BUSI 301-B03 Case Study: Does Not Forbid Is it morally, ethically, or Biblically wrong for Christians to turn to declare bankruptcy? No. Bankruptcy in the Bible is mostly dealt with caring for the poor, which is not Carl’s situation. Bankruptcy laws in our country go a long way toward balancing the needs of both lender and borrower. The goal is to reduce the losses incurred by both lender and creditor. The creditor holds reasonable rights towards the debtor. (Bankruptcy, 2013) With Biblical precedence our bankruptcy laws have the benevolent intent that the debtor can recover from his hardships and receive a “fresh start”. The Bible does not prohibit all borrowing. Jesus’ testimony regarding borrowing and lending settles the validity of the issue. He declared in Matthew 5:42: “Give to the one who ask you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you.” Specifically looking at Carl’s matter, the Bible does warn against not paying back debts. “The wicked borrows and doesn’t pay back, the righteous is gracious and gives.” (Psalms 37:21) “Owe no man anything, but to love one another” (Romans 13:8), living in bondage to the financiers of this world system should not be away of life. We should not be enslaved to lenders. Carl’s creditors have the right to pursue debt collection; he being the debtor should pursue a lawsuit in an attempt to collect any available cash or assets to satisfy the debt (Create, 2013). His actions prove......

...Discussion Board Forum 2 Case Study Business Ethics Roger Charnock BUSI 561 Abstract Most people are committed to doing the right thing; however that is not always the case in business. Since the days of a formal handshake to close a deal, the contract has evolved into a complex process. Many years ago society believed in the power of the spoken word; thus the statement my word is my bond, however since the downfall of mankind in the garden mistrust and out right egregious acts to undermine the boundaries of right and wrong has become more prevalent, especially in business. Christians conducting business in this present business model have to protect themselves from individuals who are self-seeking and unscrupulous. This paper will look at one example of contracts, while maintaining your spirituality. Contracts “In the sweat of your face shall you eat bread until you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you shall return” (Genesis 3:19 Amplified Bible). Since the days of Adam, society has tried to find an angle, something that will give them an advantage. While competition is good especially in the world of contracting, fair and reasonable is the oil that lubes the contracting wheel. Still this sense of right or wrong does not prevent poor contracts or unscrupulous dealings. The struggle for supremacy had its impetus with Cain and Abel. Jealousy and material gain will create irrational thoughts and entice someone to do...

If so, will Penton Media see lower then usual advertising revenue if more efficient methods of inquiring advertisement are not adopted instead of the reader service cards. - Yes, The study conducted by Penton media proves that due to information technology methods that were virtually non-existent in 1992 the e reader cards have displayed a lack of efficiency in recent years. The study backs this up by estimating that within the next 5 years newer methods of communication will hold a majority share of the market with at least 72.2 percent of people expected to visit an advertising website. 2 Management Question: Are the reader service cards still an efficient method for generating advertisement revenues, or have they been replaced by more efficient information technology platforms? -Yes, The reader cards remain an efficient method of generating revenue, while they seem to be slowly losing ground to more information technology platforms like the Internet, email, or fax on demand, they remain producing revenue for the company by generating some advertisement profit. 3 Research Question: Is Penton media reader card service generating enough advertising revenue to remain competitive?

...Regina Vazquez BUSI 645 Individual Assignment #3 November 20, 2014   Discretionary benefits are an important commodity to both employees and employers. Today, it is expected to have some type of leave program and companies, although not required by law to have them, use these benefits to attract the best talent. They are also a way of rewarding good performance. Employees’ use of paid time off gives them the chance to rest and relax without having to worry about decreased pay. They then come back recharged and ready to excel, which benefits the company. “Most firms that provide high-quality benefits do so because they think it is the right thing to do and allows them to maintain a competitive edge with improved recruitment, retention, productivity, and morale” (Perrin et. Al, 2007, p. 1098). The problem lies with having a program that is flexible for the employees but yet doesn’t interfere with company operations. Abuse of leave programs creates an environment of mistrust and unexpected absences can cause delays and more work for co-workers. Firms must consider the many factors, such as number of employees, ages, and the type of work, when deciding what type of leave program to have. There is not a one size fits all design. For the employer, their ultimate goal is to have a leave program that prioritizes the organization’s goals first. Most companies have a traditional leave program whereas leave is separated into vacation days, sick days, and personal days. Vacation...

Acc 301 Case 4

...Case 8-4 the Bear Minimum Case 8-4 The Bear Minimum Provision 1 According to 840-10-25-5 (b) it seems that the legal fees being paid by Big Bear for Goliath Co. would be excluded from the minimum lease payment. Reading further in 840-10-25-6 (e) it says “Fees that are paid by the lessee to the owners of the special-purpose entity for structuring the lease transaction. Such fees shall be included as part of minimum lease payments” so you would include these fees paid by Big Bear for the structuring the lease. In the Intermediate Accounting SIXTH EDITION p.832 under the Executory Costs “These expenditures simply are expensed by the lessee as incurred” So, for the legal fees paid by Big Bear to Stripe, Berry, Mills and Buck LLP they should be expense when incurred and not included in the minimum lease payments. So, the legals fees that were paid for Goliath Co. for the structuring of the lease would be included in the minimum lease payments but the fees paid to Stripe, Berry, Mills and Buck LLP by Big Bear for its own legal fees would not be. ASC 840-10-25-5 For a lessee, minimum lease payments comprise the payments that the lessee is obligated to make or can be required to make in connection with the leased property, excluding both of the following: a. Contingent rentals b.

Busi 301 Case Study

...Case Study BUSI 301 LUO April 18th, 2016 Megan Wickham Part one: After reading all the details in the Landmark Case 13.4 Diaz v. Pan Am World Airways, Inc. I would have to agree with the court. Mr. Diaz was denied a flight attendant job with the airline because he is a male and that goes against the airline’s policy which states only a female may be a flight attendant. As the case goes to says, Mr. Diaz then filed a complaint with EEOC. His complaint was simply that the airline’s policy was a direct violation of Title VII; discriminating against him based on his gender. From an ethical standpoint and biblical standpoint this is just wrong. The Bible says, “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” (Galatians 3:28 NKJV). Pan Am had then argued that gender was a bona fide occupational qualification (BFOQ) for flight attendant positions. Pan Am also argued that passengers preferred women as flight attendants and customer preference in this case should also be considered” (Melvin & Katz, 2015, p. 386). The airline used such information as a nondiscriminatory reason for not hiring Mr. Diaz and as a way to provide, in their opinion, a legally recognizable defense. The airline continued to base and defend their decision of not hiring a male flight attendant as a result of employment policy as business necessity. Although the trail court found in favor for Pan Am, the......

Case #1 Busi 642

...the new EC? What should they say? To whom? When? How? It would be wise for Voser to get in front of the negativity voiced by some members of the organization before it festers into discontent and organizational tension. “Voser did not think it appropriate to measure his commitment to diversity and inclusion by looking only at the group of eight people at the very top of Shell” (Sucher 2020, p.1). It is important that Voser points out that the creation of the new Executive Committee (EC) does not represent the efforts of the organization to be both diverse and inclusive. He should reaffirm throughout the ranks that the mission will continue to be diversity and an atmosphere that encourages inclusion. It is pretty obvious from reading the case that the committee does not adequately reflect the culture that has been devised within the Royal Dutch Shell Company. I feel that it is important that this issue of negativity be dealt with and not overlooked. If left unattended it could lead to distrust, skepticism, and low morale amongst the employees. It should be handled properly and promptly before the situation becomes critical. As a new CEO, Voser needs to quickly clarify his position of diversity to gain trust and begin to build a good relationship with him employees. These efforts might start by having a session with the top levels of management to clarify his intent concerning the formulation of the committee. It is particularly important that he does not lose the support at...
