February 1, 2010 – May 21, 2010 BA621 Business Law Lesson #4 Assignment #7 Case 11-4 Summary: Shirley Parker v. Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation This case (pages 294-295 of your text) focuses on mitigation of damages. The case involved actress Shirley Parker who had contracted with a film corporation to play the female lead role in a movie. The corporation decided not to make the film, and offered Parker a role in another film. Parker refused the offer and sued the corporation, seeking her fee plus interest. The corporation said Parker had a duty to mitigate damages. The court considered money due under the contract, and damages resulting from defendant’s breach of the contract. The court affirmed the trial court’s summary judgment in favor of Parker. Refer to Case 11-4 and answer the following questions (found on page 296 of your text). 1) Decide what damage award each of the primary ethical norms outlined in Chapter 1 compels in Case 11-4 and present a rationale for why that norm compels that particular damage award. You are not looking so much for a specific number here. Instead, you are asking the question, "Which of these norms propel the damage award higher and which argue for minimal damages?"

    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.
