Defendants would be forced to resign from red bull

This preview shows page 4 - 6 out of 6 pages.

defendants would be forced to resign from Red Bull and would be barred from working for any comparable business in any capacity in any part of the world. Additionally five of the six defendants would be forced to leave the US as their work visas were dependant on their employment. This would create an oppressive and unfair scenario for the defendants. The plaintiffs failed to provide sufficient evidence against the defendants, proving that they were exposed to any trade secrets or proprietary information that would damage NASC and prohibits them from working for a competitor. The court decided that there are no secrets to coaching soccer and the coaches did not violate the noncompetition agreement, nonsolicitation agreement, or the nondisclosure agreement. Under Connecticut law, it would be an extraordinary stretch to extend mandatory injunctive relief under these circumstances. Plaintiffs have no legitimate protectable interest in preventing Defendants from continuing to teach children how to play soccer. Maranczyk v. State of New Jersey Police Training Commission Issue: May a public entity condition the provision of a public service on the recipient’s execution of a waiver of liability? Holding: No, the waiver violates the Legislature’s intended public policy in the Tort Claims Act. Reasoning : Compelling applicants to sign a complete exculpatory waiver as a condition of admission violates the intent of the Tort Claims Act to provide a “statutorily authorized remedy” for injuries resulting from negligence during their training. If the court upheld the mandatory signature of this waiver as a condition of admission, the court would “effectively reestablish common law sovereign immunity” and invalidate the goals of uniformity delivered by the Tort Claims Act.

Issue: Should the plaintiff be allowed to use evidence of substantially similar incidents of plastic neck failure in regard to its negligent design claim? Holding: The district court erred in not allowing the evidence of substantially similar incidents of plastic neck failure to be used in regard to the negligent design claim. Reasoning: The jury found no liability on the part of either defendant in trial. Specifically, it found the manufacturer, BMW AG, not negligent in the design or manufacture of the radiator and not negligent for failing to warn of a defect in the radiator. It also found BMW NA, the seller, not negligent for failing to warn of a defect. Since the burden of proof is on the plaintiff, finding substantially similar incidents would be important in supporting the plaintiff’s claim that the design of the radiator neck caused other failures. By not allowing the plaintiff to use this information, the trial court damaged the plaintiff’s case before the trial began. The defendants would be able to refute the claims with evidence showing the percentage of failures compared to cars sold. The court referred to City of Madison Heights v. Elgin Sweeper Co., 2007 Mich. App. LEXIS 1219 (Mich. App. 2007) to

    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.
