Patrick Ogunsola Legal Environments Final Exam 12/3/19 Ms. Washington Chapter 5 – Ethics and Business Decision Making 1a. The primary reason that most ethical problems occur in business is the desire to increase sales quotas, thereby increasing profit margins for a corporation. This reason is what motivated Corbin to cover up all negative publicity within the company. It is not ethical to publish a product without knowing its side effects and not taking any preventive measures to prevent such a casualty from occurring in the first place. Chapter 7 – Negligence and Strict Liability 2a. The elements of negligence are the following: 1. Duty: legal obligation which the defendant owes a reasonable duty of care to the plaintiff 2. Breach Of Duty: The defendant must have breached that duty in violation of acting or failing to act as a reasonable person. 3. Causation: The defendant’s breach caused the plaintiff’s injury, which the defendant failed to carry out his or her duty of care, which caused harm to the plaintiff.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
