1-Question 9, Chapter 22, of Mann, R.A. and Roberts, B.S. (2009). Business Law and the Regulation of Business. Mason, OH: Cengage Learning:
“The plaintiff, while driving a pickup manufactured by the defendant, was struck in the rear by another motor vehicle. Upon impact, the plaintiff’s head was jarred backward against the rear window of the cab, causing the plaintiff serious injury. The pickup was not equipped with a headrest, and none was required at the time. Should the plaintiff prevail on a cause of action based upon strict liability in tort? Why? Why not?”
2– Case Problem 13, Chapter 23, Mann & Roberts (2009):
“A farmer made a contract in April to sell a grain dealer forty thousand bushels of corn to be delivered in October. On June 3, the farmer unequivocally informed the grain dealer that he was not going to plant any corn, that he would not fulfill the contract, and that if the buyer had commitments to resell the corn he should make other arrangements. The grain dealer waited in vain until October for performance of the repudiated contract. Then he bought corn at a greatly increased price on the market in order to fulfill commitments to his purchasers. To what damages, if any, is the grain dealer entitled? Explain.
