Chapter 2 will end up coming on the final. And the way the question will work is that they will ask you a hypothetical. And I will need to address at lease 3 concepts in the chapter. Utilitarianism= the ethical doctrine that virtue is based on utility, and that conduct should be directed toward promoting the greatest happiness of the greatest number of persons. Ethicaial fundamentalism = they have a central authority or central set of rule, that guide them to make ethical decisions, people follow the bible or the Quran. Some say that u can do what the scriptures ( rule) say and some say u take the knowledge from the rule to help make the desertions, Ethical relativism = its doctrine that say actions should be judged upon what an individual thinks what is right or wrong. If to cultures differ on an issue then they are both right. Its kind of similar to situational ethics because situational ethic the rules say that is there is a ethical dilemma its hard because real life situation are difficult. Chapter 3 Civil dispute resolution , we talk about the court system, throughout lecture the federal system , we start out in the district court which is the trial court, then from their u go to the circuit court of appeals and then to the united states supreme court we talk about that only united court supreme’s decisions are the low of the land . 9:30 Federal trials are presAdent but they do not have to be followed by the state court.

The person needs to have some sort of connection to the sate you have to be doing some sort of business or if you cause an accident in that state they can bring you into that states courts, a contract or something like that. 14;00 Long arm jurisdiction = one state can grab you and bring you into their court even if you don’t live there as long as you have some sort of minim contact with that state. Chapter 9 contract law (which is the next chapter we did.) Hybrid agreement = (second page of chapter 9) is when there is both a good and a service involved, and you have to determine which is the predominant feature of the transaction. Why do you have to determine the predominate feature in the transaction? What difference does it make? If it is a good you sue under the uniform commercial code, if that’s the predominate feature of the
