Step 6: Review Case Two: Carz Bazaar
Feeling proud of your growing knowledge of business law and your work on the Blue Mood Clothing case, you move on to your next assignment. You open the Carz Bazaar case file to review the facts of the situation.
Once you have fully assessed the situation in the Carz Bazaar case, proceed to the next step, where you will gather the information you need to analyze the legal questions of the case.
Step 7: Gather and Analyze Information
As you read through the materials, try to begin answering the questions posed below.
You will likely encounter many new legal concepts, so take notes about which sections apply to this case so that you can easily refer back to them when you begin to write your analysis.
In all legal cases, there are disputes about the facts and the law. In this case, we can assume the facts stated in our case file are accurate, so we just need to decide what law applies and how the law can be interpreted to support the plaintiffsâ€™ and defendant’s arguments. The issue of who caused the accident has been settled. Wilson caused the accident, so the issue before us is whether Wilson’s employer can be held responsible for his actions.
- What are the arguments in favor of the plaintiffs (the accident victims)?
- What are the arguments in favor of the defendant (Carz Bazaar)?
Read about legal responsibilities of agents and employees to help you answer these questions.
In the next step, you’ll formalize your thoughts so that they are ready to put into your presentation.
Step 8: Create and Submit Your Legal Analysis

Good to see your continued progress on these cases.
As you prepare to submit your findings for the Carz Bazaar incident, I wanted to give you some clear delivery instructions.
As in the previous case, I’d like you to use your outline and research notes from your work on this case to prepare your written analysis.
Maintaining company procedure, I’d also like you to meet the following requirements for this deliverable:

Following this submission, I would like you to participate in a discussion with your fellow Colossal Company colleagues to see if we can reach a consensus about the winner of this case.
