2. 1st Post Due by Day 3.
A Principal’s Responsibility for the Actions of Their Agent. Karen is
shopping at Big Mart. She has with her an umbrella which is the same brand Big
Mart carries. When a Big Mart employee, Steve, sees her leave with the umbrella
without going through the checkout lane, he asks her to come back into the
store. Steve says that he thinks Karen is shoplifting the umbrella. Karen tells
him that she has had the umbrella for years and shows him marks of wear and
tear. Steve apologizes and tells Karen she is free to go. Can Karen
successfully sue for false imprisonment or defamation? From what you have
learned about the relationship between a principal and an agent, analyze
whether Steve or Big Mart could be liable because of Steve’s actions.
Guided Response: Review your peer’s responses. For at least
two of your classmates, determine if your analysis of the facts is the same. Do
you agree with their assessment or do you see the issue differently?
