____________________________ NAME _________ PIN Law 3800 T. Edmonds Fall 07 First Quiz Questions 1, 2, 3 and 4 are based upon the following facts: Walter lives in Michigan. While on his way to vacation in Florida, Walter stops at a small hardware store in Tennessee and buys a beach chair to use in Florida. When Walter arrives at his vacation destination in Clearwater, Florida, he takes the beach chair to the beach. When Walter tries to sit on his beach chair, a weld fails, and the chair breaks. Walter is thrown to the ground and injured. The beach chair was made by a manufacturing firm in Tennessee. Walter decides to sue the hardware store and the chair manufacturer for his injuries. You are to assume that he has a valid cause of action (basis for his lawsuit). Walter has over $100,000 in medical bills from his injury that he sues to recover, along with other forms of money damages. 1. Where could Walter properly chose to file his lawsuit?

Walter Files his suit in a court having jurisdiction to hear the case. The defendants file an answer, in which they admit that Walter was injured, and that the injury resulted from the chair having broken due to a defect in manufacturing. In essence, the defendants admit that what Walter has alleged happened as he claims, but defendants claim that Walter cannot recover for his injuries because he waited too long to file his lawsuit, and the statute (law) that limits how long a plaintiff can wait to file this type of lawsuit precludes his recovery. This issue would be a question of law , to be decided by the Court. The defendants want the court to rule in their favor and dismiss the lawsuit without going to trial.

    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.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
