Project 1 Due: June 22
Following a year long humanitarian trip to Another Country, Rock Star Big Bad Bruce , planned to return to his home in the USA to announce his run for political office, as well as to promote his new business, called personal view. Personal view is a pair of glasses that can see and hear everything within a selected view, set by the viewer. It can use any security camera within a quarter mile, and patch it to the wearer. The glasses may also view and capture any and all video feeds within one mile without the need for passwords or logins. The glasses amplify the wearers and any others thought processes within one quarter mile. Fans wanted to welcome Big Bad Bruce home by gathering at Baltimore Airport when he arrived and to express their support for his candidacy. Baltimore Airport is a large international airport, which serves several major airlines and has five concourses with numerous gates, parking lots and grassy knolls. The planned welcome home gathering would involve about 200 enthusiastic fans and a 15 minute speech by Big Bad Bruce to the group about his political views and his new product. Prior to entering the USA, Bruce is worried that his brief case with the prototype of the glasses and designs. will be taken at the airport, allowing the public access to the product's secrets to the public as well as to the competition. Baltimore Airport is owned and operated by the State of Maryland's Department of Transportation. One of the airport's regulations, Section B, forbids "any gathering of more than 30 people anywhere in the airport unless travel related." The stated purpose of Section B "is to avoid congestion and to promote the smooth operation of the airport." The statute further states that the patrons and passengers are subject to the search of their persons and any and all personal items that they may have in their possessions in side of the terminals or within 500 yards of any building. Passengers by accepting the privilege, license of passage, hereby consents to and waive any claim as to violation of constitutional rights which they hereby waive. The passenger and any patrons hereby also waive the right of any jurisdiction of the courts. Any claims that the passenger or patrons, may have, will be decided by arbitration. Violators of Section B are subject to a fine up to $1,000 and/or incarceration of up to 6 months. Big Bad Bruce and his fans have requested permission to hold their welcome-home gathering in the airport, but the airport has denied this request based solely upon Section B. Big Bad Bruce's fans hire you to file a lawsuit challenging Section. B in order to obtain access to the airport for the welcome-home gathering. Bruce also feels that this will interfere with his right to show his new product.
Discuss in detail the basis of any challenges to Section. B and evaluate the Big Bad Bruce's fans' chances for success.
Case Analysis Research Project
Write an extensive, comprehensive analysis of applicable court cases related to this area of law and how it applies to the set of facts.
The case analysis must be at least 8-10 pages in length (excluding title page, Bibliography, tables, appendices). The 8-10 page length is a suggested length; the paper may be much longer than 10 pages, if you think it is necessary to cover the issues. A paper must not be less than 8 full pages, a paper that is less than 8 pages is unlikely to comprehensively cover the issues and thus will be penalized. Is there anything wrong with the statute?
Case Analysis Content Format:
The case analysis must include the following content:
Introduction: 1-2 paragraph introduction of the case analysis.
Case Brief: A complete case brief of the case to be analyzed, using the Case Brief format described in the conference.
Case Background: Discussion of background of case, including discussion of previously decided related cases using the actual court opinions of other legal cases, law
review journal articles, and other legal publication, articles as resources.
Analysis of Current Implications of Case: Discussion of how case decision is likely to affect current events and business law, using the actual court opinions of other legal cases, law review journal articles and legal publications as resources.
Analysis of Future Implications of Case: Discussion of how case decision is likely to affect/influence future business law and future court cases, using actual court opinions of other legal cases, law review journal articles and legal publications as resources. This is not to be your personal opinion.
Personal Opinion of Case: 1-5 paragraph discussion or your personal opinion of the case. Your opinions must be largely supported with legal rationale and legal principles, legal resources and other cases; it may not be only an emotional reaction.
Summary/Conclusion of Case: Discussion of summary, conclusions of case, excluding your personal opinion.
Bibliography: Properly formatted bibliography of at least 5 resources used in case analysis, in addition to the case citation. In other words, you are required to use a minimum of 5 legal resources + the case resource for a total of 6+ resources which must be cited in the Bibliography and body of the analysis.
Case Analysis Research Resources: The case analysis research project must include a minimum of 6 legal resources. Resources may be obtained through the Index to Legal Periodicals, LEXIS/NEXIS, and other UMUC Library databases, the Internet, the classroom Webliography websites and other methodologies for accessing information. Resources should be taken largely from law review journal articles, other legal publication articles relevant to the case topic, business journal articles relevant to the case subject, and case opinions. This is a legal case analysis so the resources need to be largely legal resources and very relevant, on-point business resources.
Newspapers (except The Wall Street Journal), textbooks, the class textbook and Wikipedia sites may not be used as resources in any section of the case analysis research project.
Refer to the UMUC Effective Writing Center and UMUC Library tutorials and examples regarding plagiarism and citations. You may access these resources via the Course Content conference in the classroom.
Case Analysis Evaluation Criteria: The case analysis will be evaluated according to the following standards:
An accurate and complete case brief; Logical integration of information to support the case analysis discussion;
Comprehensiveness/depth of research and analysis; Comprehensive, thorough analysis of case; Organizational consistency, orderly flow, relevancy, and effectiveness of sequential ideas and paragraphs to the case analysis;
