Business Torts and Ethics Paper
You own University Heights Apartments, a business that rents primarily to students. One evening, your tenant Sharon is attacked by an intruder who forces the lock on the sliding glass door of her ground-floor apartment. Sharon's screams attract the attention of Darryl, your resident manager, who comes to Sharon's aid. Together, Darryl and Sharon drive the intruder off, but not before they both are badly cut by the intruder.
Write a paper of 700- to 1,050-words answering the questions posed by this scenario.
- Is the intruder liable for what he has done? Why or why not?
- Do you have legal responsibilities to Sharon and Darryl? Why or why not?
- Do you have ethical responsibilities to Sharon and Darryl? Explain. If there are ethical responsibilities, what are they?
- What should you do to prevent or mitigate such risks?
