For this week’s Assignment, you will practice analogizing and distinguishing cases based on a set of hypothetical facts. This will allow you to assess the applicability of case law to issues. You will also learn how to determine if an opinion is on point, and if so, how it could affect the outcome of a case.
Assignment 7 on page 389 of the textbook has a hypothetical court opinion (Example 1, Court Opinion). Underneath the hypothetical court opinion, there are three hypothetical client facts (Part A, Part B, and Part C). For this week’s Assignment, you need to determine the following for each of the hypothetical client facts (Parts A–C):
You must answer all three questions for each hypothetical set of facts (Part A, Part B, and Part C). Each question must be answered in at least 1 paragraph (3–5 sentences); therefore each part will have at least 3 paragraphs.
Make sure you clearly identify each part (Part A, Part B, and Part C) and answer the three questions for each one.
Your Assignment must have a title page in APA format. All of the legal sources used in the Assignment itself must be in Bluebook format.
