Question 17



A bank representative closes the bank vault at night before going home. Unknown to the bank representative, a customer was inside auditing his safe deposit box with the permission of a bank teller. Everyone goes home and the bank representative carelessly forgets to look inside the vault before closing it. The bank vault is closed; and the customer is locked inside for 24 hours. When the vault is opened, the customer is found and rushed to the hospital due to lack of oxygen in the vault. The bank customer ultimately recovers from his injuries, but has medical bills and has been traumatized too. He now sues the bank (and probably will win) pursuant to what legal theory?






False Imprisonment



Intentional Tort



Breach of Warranty

Question 18


Allie, an adult, is injured while using a very sharp kitchen knife manufactured by Fearless Cutting to prepare a dinner. The knife is manufactured according to Fearless’ product standards. There is an adequate handle for the knife, a sheath to enclose the knife, but no warning on the box, sheath, or knife itself that the knife is very sharp. Allie sues Fearless pursuant to the doctrine of strict liability, contending that the knife is a defective product. The likely result of such a lawsuit would be:



Fearless loses since it is deemed to be an insurer of an ultra-hazardous product which caused harm to a consumer.



Fearless loses since there was no warning on the product that the knife was sharp and could cut.



Fearless loses since the knife was a flawed product.



Allie loses since the product was not defective and a reasonable person should have been aware of the risk of being cut by a knife.

Question 12




The legislature of the state of Florida approves casino gambling in Florida, but just in three locations in southeast Florida, and with the significant limitation that the casinos will not be allowed to advertise in any Florida media. The legislature wants to protect the people living in the state from being bombarded and seduced by continuous, sleek, sexy, and seductive casino ads and consequently gambling their life-savings away. The casino industry contends that the ban on advertising is unconstitutional. The likely result of the constitutional challenge will be:



The state of Florida wins since it had the best interests of the people in the state “at heart” since the legislature was trying to protect people from the “vice” of gambling.



The casino industry wins since the advertising is clearly “political speech” and Florida does not have a “compelling government interest” in restricting the speech.



The casino industry wins if the advertising is truthful and not deceptive and not aimed at minors since the advertising is protected “commercial speech.”



The casino industry wins since advertising is speech and the First Amendment to the Constitution absolutely protects all kinds of speech and expression


Question 2




The District of Columbia sues several big gun manufacturers contending that the guns they sell in large quantities legally in Virginia often illegally find their way into the District where they are used to commit crimes and to injure residents of the district as well as the criminals. The District wants to recover its public hospital expenses from the gun manufacturers and accordingly sues them for the tort of negligence. The likely result of this lawsuit will be:

The District will win since guns are very dangerous products for which the gun manufacturers are absolutely liable for.


The District will win if the residents who are shot by the guns do not have health insurance.


The District will lose if it cannot establish a factual and proximate causation connection between the original sale of the guns and the harm to the District residents.


The District will lose since Virginia is a state and the District is not a state.
