Based on the information provided in chapter 7 and the information provided in the case, I would say that the owner of AAA Landscaping did not do a good job with handling the situation with Stu Murphy. In the case, it states that Stu had heard about AAA Landscaping through word of mouth advertising from some of his neighbors in his subdivision. He decided to hire AAA to landscape his yard and it was a $1200 service. The landscapers came out and redid the sod in the front yard and trimmed up bushes in Mr. Murphy's yard. The week after AAA did Stu's yard, they received a call from Stu and he let them know that there was unfinished work. Because AAA was tied up in other jobs the owner was not able to send anyone out until later on in the week. The next day Stu called again because the job was still not finished and the owner did not get around to calling Stu back. This went on for another week and finally the owner sent out someone to
Case Facts: The sheriff’s department in Humboldt County, Nevada, responded to a 911 call that reported an assault. The 911 caller reported witnessing a man assaulting a woman while driving a GMC truck on a local road. The sheriff’s department responded by sending Deputy Sheriff Lee Dove to investigate. The deputy arrived to the reported area and found the truck parked on the side of the road with a man standing next to it. The deputy approached the truck and explained to the man that he was investigating a 911 call. The deputy then asked the man for any identification and the man refused to provide the deputy any form of identification. The deputy asked the man a total of 11 times to provide his identification and refused each time. The deputy then warned the man that he was going to arrest him if he did not comply. The deputy proceeded to arrest the man and later found out the man was named Larry D. Hiibel. He was charged with "willfully resist[ing], delay[ing], or obstruct[ing] a public officer in discharging or attempting to discharge any legal duty of his office" which is a Nevada statute that is referred to as a "stop and identify" statute. Hiibel was convicted of the crime in the Justice Court of Union Township and fined $250. Hiibel then appealed his conviction to the Sixth Judicial District Court, the Supreme Court of Nevada, and the Supreme Court of the United States.
Deere & Company (Deere) has been experiencing a decrease in its profit margins for one of its aftermarket resale products, specifically the gatherer chain, over the past couple of years. Currently, the cost-price ratio is at 80% compared to last year’s 50%. The purchase cost for the gatherer chain has been steadily increasing, while the aftermarket price has been decreasing. Deere has been budgeting its price to match that of a major competitor, which has been causing the decrease. The company’s main supplier of its gatherer chain is Saunders Manufacturing, with which Deere has established a long term relationship. The owner of Saunders has a reputation of being a tough negotiator, and is someone who is known for not willing to share financial information about the company. However, the U.S. Department of Commerce has provided financial estimates in Saunders’ industry as follows: material spend, 42%; direct labor, 16%; indirect labor, 6%; Overhead, 20%. These percentages are helpful to Deere because they can be used in the negotiation process with Sanders. Since Sanders will not share any specific cost information, Deere is able to use these estimates as a way to justify Sanders reducing its prices. Using these estimates during the negotiations might also incentivize Sanders to provide accurate numbers for its specific manufacturing costs.

Jon and Marsha are suing Boren Deal for the enforcement of their real estate contract. There are several defenses to contract enforcement, however, very few defenses would be viable options for the seller. The real estate contract does not contain illegal subject matter, nor was the contract obtained illegally (i.e. fraud or duress). While there are several mistakes within the contract documents, the lawsuit itself has nothing to do with these mistakes, but rather one party trying to get out of their side of the contract. The one defense the seller may have is a lack of consideration in the form of an Earnest Money Deposit check. Earnest money is generally used as a tool to preserve a sales deal and is a sign of good will. However, earnest money is not required for sales transactions. The only problem here is that the buyers stated that they had delivered the Earnest Deposit check to their agent, but Marsha was without her check book that day and promised to deliver it as soon as possible. The case scenario never states whether this promise was ever followed through. If Marsha did indeed deliver the check to her agent, all is well, but if she failed to

FACTS: Anthony and Alcibia Jeanmarie sold a house to a woman named Melanie Murray. Murray used two loans with balances of $104,000 and $26,000 from Encore Credit Corporation to secure the mortgage for the property. Mark Peoples, who works for Pyramid Title, LLC, made sure to sign the check of $110,303.86 to pay the Jeanmaries for the property sold. However, there were insufficient funds for the company since the loan of $26,000 was not “timely funded,” according to Peoples. The Jeanmaries took Peoples to court because they believe he is liable for the returned check because Peoples had authorized the check with his signature.
WOOSTER — It was good police work that led law enforcement Saturday to a Sherwood Drive residence in which they found evidence of a large meth operation.
Vincent Morgan is a police officer in Little Rock, Arkansas who stopped Vivian Rogers for a cracked tail light. She was asked for car insurance, but she did not have it.

Candidate Lawhorn used very few filler words while giving his order and only stumbled in his speech during the mission. Through the remaining paragraphs of his order, he had a clear voice and maintained good eye contact with the members of his fire team. He appeared comfortable in his presentation, which continued through the execution phase. SNC kept his fire team focused, unfortunately on the wrong mission, which prevented him from accomplishing the task. He tried to move the members of his fire team across the obstacle instead of just the ammo can. Candidate Lawhorn also struggled with maintaining the tempo necessary to accomplish the mission. He remained silent when his fire team members were moving slow or over-thinking tasks. SNC
On the other hand, Justice Harlan believed the police should’ve been able to use the evidence they had found in the search, and he referenced Wolf v. Colorado, which specifically ruled that the Fourth Amendment doesn't prohibit the use of illegally seized evidence. Furthermore, states and local police weren’t directed by the exclusionary rule. In Wolf v. Colorado, Justices argued not all illegal evidence should be thrown out because doing so doesn’t violate the standards assured by the Due Process Clause. Mapp v. Ohio and Wolf v. Colorado had a connection that illegal evidence should be usable by the Supreme Court. Moreover, the State of Ohio declared if the search was made without any consent the State was not prevented from using evidence
