In this assignment, you’ll need to decide  whether Patty Plaintiff has any legal claims arising from a series of  unfortunate events.  After reading the scenario, answer the questions  that follow, making sure to fully explain the basis of your decision.

Patty Plaintiff is shopping at her  favorite store, Cash-Mart. She is looking for a new laptop, but she  can’t find one she likes. Then, realizing that she is going to be late  for an appointment, she attempts to leave the store, walking very fast.  However, before she can leave, she is stopped by a security guard who  accuses her of shoplifting. Patty, who has taken nothing, denies any  wrong doing. The officer insists and takes Patty to a small room in the  back of the store. The guard tells Patty that if she attempts to leave  the room she will be arrested and sent to jail. At this point, the guard  leaves the room. Patty is scared and waits in the room for over an hour  until the manager comes in and apologizes and tells Patty that she is  free to go.

About this same time, Gerry Golfer is  hitting golf balls in his backyard. Gerry decides to break out his new  driver and hits a golf ball out of his backyard into the Cash-Mart  parking lot. The golf ball hits Patty Plaintiff on the head and knocks  her unconscious just as she is leaving the store.

Five days later, after recovering from her  injuries, Patty returns to work. Unfortunately, she used her company  e-mail to send her mom a personal email about her injury despite being  aware that company policy prohibits use of company e-mail for personal  communication. Patty’s supervisor, Barry Bossley, discovers Patty’s  violation and Patty is reprimanded. When Patty goes home she uses her  personal computer to post disparaging comments about her boss and her  company on social media. The next day Patty is fired from her job.

In 4-6 pages answer the following questions raised in the scenario:

  1. What are the possible tort claims that Patty can make against  Cash-Mart? Discuss the elements of the claim and how those elements  relate to the facts in the scenario.
     
  2. Was Gerry negligent when he hit the golf ball that injured Patty?  Discuss the elements of negligence and use facts from the scenario to  support your decision.
     
  3. Does Patty have a right to privacy when using her company’s e-mail system?
     
  4. Can Patty be legally fired from her job for making negative comments about her boss and her company on social media?
     
  5. Format your assignment according to the following formatting requirements:
    • Typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides.
    • Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment,  the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the  date. The cover page is not included in the required page length.
