After each scenario is evaluated the decision on how each case would be resolved will be stated with legal reasoning for each answer. Scenario #1 In the scenario presented, many things occur.

A plaintiff has the can be compensated for damages that were sustained as a result of the tort. There are several tort actions present in the case, these include: battery, defamation, wrongful termination, and negligence. There are several potential plaintiffs in this case. First there is Malik, who can claim battery at the hands of Daniel for the fall that breaks his teeth. Malik might make a civil case for being shot. Daniel could also be subject to criminal charges. Second, Daniel could pursue defamation and wrongful discharge from employment against his boss.

Daniel would be a defendant in the case of Malik for shoving him and also for shooting him. In the case of shoving, the battery caused injury (Malik’s teeth.)

    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.
