Read the “You Be the Judge” on p. 164 of the text. It is the case of Huff v. Shaw.
Review the facts, and the arguments of each party in the case.
1. what is the legal issue in the case (i.e. what question of law needs to be resolved)?; and
2. as the judge, decide for one party or the other. State your reasoning. Try to go beyond reiterating the argument given in the text. Also, don’t rely on your instinct. Apply the law.
Note: This case has local origins. It involved board members for the Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky International Airport.
Your response is due by on Sunday night by 11:55pm. This assignment is in a discussion forum so feel free to comment on your classmates’ responses.
Note that there are no right or wrong answers in this exercise. I want to see that you can identify the issues in the case and provide a rationale decision based on what you learned.
