He was born with music in his blood, as his father was the choir director for a local Baptist church, and his grandfather, Charles L. Timberlake, was a Baptist minister. Justin Timberlake is an American singer-songwriter, dancer, businessman, and actor. Justin spent his childhood in Millington, a small town just north of Memphis. His parents divorced when he was five years of age, and both his parents have since remarried. Justin showed himself to be a natural performer from a very early age, and by the time he was 10, he was already singing on the stage. The famous Timberlake singing and dancing style are greatly influenced by Michael Jackson, and Justin is often called the new King of Pop. Justin’s first official paid “gig” came in 1993, when he was still only 12, when he sang on stage with the Disney Mickey Mouse Club. Justin’s time on the Disney stage proved to be a major turning point in both his professional and personal life. On this show his cast mates included future girlfriend, Britney Spears, future tour mate Christina Aguilera, future bandmate JC and future movie actor Ryan Gosling.

The trial court's basic function is to resolve disputes by determining the facts and applying legal principles to decide who is right.

So Majority opinion is called the "Opinion of the Court," this is the official verdict in the case that represents the vote of the majority of justices Dissenting opinion is an opinion that is written by a justice who disagrees with the majority Concurring opinion is an opinion that agrees with the decision but may disagree with the some of the reasoning behind the Court opinion, or may elaborate on a point made or introduce further relevant information 3.

Part King Inc Case

...Introduction As one of the divisions of Hawthorne Corporation, Limited (Hawthorne), General Merchandise (GM) earns about 63.86% of Hawthorne’s annual revenue. All of the 450 GM stores are operated as dealer owned and operated franchises. Strategically, Hawthorne’s GM division is formed to attract more hobbyist and commercial businesses, and to reinforce the entrain barrier of Canadian market for the US competitors. During the mid-1990s, Hawthorne realized that its GM division is not addressing the needs of the two key customers segments in the automotive parts industry – ‘do-it-yourself’ hobbyists and commercial consumers. Plus, the fact that Hawthorne’s commercial consumers dislike its expansion of stores, Hawthorne has decided to open a separate company to focus on this industry – Part King, Inc (PK). PK is wholly owned by Hawthorne, and opened its first Canadian store at Guelph in 1996. Its objective is “to be the most recommended auto parts store in Canada by carrying parts that customers demanded, hiring employees who are knowledgeable and offering prices that were affordable”. PK stores target both the hobbyists and commercial customers, which both have specific and very different needs. Like GM stores, all PK stores are franchises. However as the contracts with GM franchisees are renegotiated in early 2005, Hawthorne decided to pursue a corporate store model for PK. Hawthorne believes that PK business has the potential to be extremely profitable. Currently existing...

Burger King Case

... judgment regarding the Nadels' claim that the coffee was a defective product because its temperature was unreasonably and excessively. It holds nonetheless that the fact that the coffee caused second-degree burns is sufficient to create a genuine issue of material fact as to whether the coffee was a defective product and "whether the coffee was so exceedingly hot that serving it without a warning was unreasonable. The fact that a product may cause injury does not mean that the product is defective. A manufacturer need not make its product accident proof or foolproof. The trial court granted both summary-judgment motions (Emil & BK), and the Nadels appealed. The trial court based its judgment on its conclusion that Christopher's injury resulting from spilled hot coffee was, as a matter of law, the result of intervening, superseding causes attributable to Paul and Evelyn. 3. Briefly state the facts of this case, using the information found in the case in LexisNexis. (5 points) The facts are: On December 1993, plaintiff-appellant Paul Nadel was driving his children, Christopher, Ashley and Brittany and his mother Evelyn Nadel. They ordered sandwiches and 02 cups of coffee from the drive-through window of a Burger King owned and operated by defendant- appellee Emil, Inc. ("Emil") under a franchise agreement with defendant-appellee Burger King Corporation ("BK"). Evelyn found coffee too hot to drink. She then either started to place the container of coffees on the floor......

Burger King Case Study

...Burger King: Promoting a Food Fight What are Burger King’s communication objectives for its target audience? Burger King’s CEO Brad Blum said that he wanted to develop “ground-breaking, next level, results-oriented, and innovative advertising that strongly connects without our core customers.” In response to declining market share to McDonalds and Wendy’s, BK needed a different direction in how it communicates with their customers. They chose an ad agency that can help them to generate buzz via unorthodox methods that their main target audience of younger males can connect with. They were able to reach their objectives. With its focus on the “super fan,” does BK risk alienating other customers? What are the implications of this? There is always risk of alienating customers when you do not focus your communications methods to specifically target them. However, in 2003 BK found itself in a situation where they were alienating their main customers by not focusing on them, the “super fan.” Since the “super fan” accounts for more than fifty percent of total sales, it made a lot of sense for BK to attempt to get back into good standing with this segment of the population. People tend to visit restaurants in groups and BK knows this. Therefore, by attracting their biggest fans back to the stores they are in turn also attracting their family and friends whom they share a meal with. By focusing on a more targeted audience to...

Justin Anson Distillery, Inc. Case

...TO: FROM: Team 3 DATE: September 03, 2014 SUBJECT: Justin Anson Distillery, Inc. Case Business Brief Justin Anson Inc., a company operating in the alcoholic beverage industry, has managed to double sales revenues in the last 10 years selling high-quality whiskey. In 2012, the anticipation of increased demand was supported with an increase in production by 50%. Even though the revenues remained at the same level ($46,200 million), the company ended the year with a net loss of $895,000. Hence, it is obvious that the problem stems from costs. Analysis The Income Statement for 2012 results in a net loss due to the mistreatment of inventorial and period costs. The costs for manufacturing bourbon whiskey, that requires a 4-year-period of maturing before being ready for the market, burden current revenues. These costs (the cost of bottling, labor and supplies expense of chemical laboratory, cost of barrels used, warehouse labor and warehouse supervisor) are inventorial costs that increase the inventory amount (assets) in the Balance Sheet, and they are going to match revenues at the time they get sold, as part of Cost of goods sold in the relevant Income Statement. In the case the manufacturing costs for bottled whiskey are not considered in the Income Statement for 2012, the net loss changes into a net income of $682 million (Exhibit 1). Costs of goods sold cannot increase dramatically in case revenues constantly held. In that case, a company that has been...

King Company Case

...THE KING COMPANY BACKGROUND The King Company experiences many of the difficulties common in today’s business climate. In response to declining sales, the company must transform itself from a strategy of expansion and high profit to one of cost containment and staff reductions. The case discusses the organization and provides details of the human resource department. Also presented are e-mails from various staff members. The e-mails identify specific problems that need to be addressed by the HR department and provides a look at King’s overall culture. You may find the tone of some e-mails to be unprofessional. This is a good lesson for us all--As much as we enjoy informality in the workplace, all documents and correspondence— including e-mails—can be retained and are discoverable in litigation.

King & Queens Case Study

...Assignment Question ( 1) ( 10 Marks) Impulse Pty Ltd (Impulse) is an entertainment system manufacturer that was established in 2005. Your audit firm King & Queen have been the auditor of Impulse since its formation. The audit report for the year ended 30 June 2012 was unqualified. Although Impulse had been suffering liquidity problems with a drop in both debtors’ turnover and inventory turnover, King & Queen did not consider that any additional audit work was necessary in regard to the valuation of these assets. In August 2012, Impulse obtained a large loan from a finance company, Easy Finance Limited (EFL), to provide additional working capital. However, Impulse continued to experience severe trading problems and was placed in liquidation in December 2012. King & Queen has been notified by EFL’s solicitors that they are taking action against your firm based on the audit of the 30 June 2012 financial report. EFL claim that the cause of Impulse’s failure related to the inadequate provision for doubtful debts and a fall in the value of inventories on hand, and that these problems were evident at 30 June 2012, but had not been adequately dealt with in the financial report due to your negligence. They also claim that they would not have given the loan to Impulse if the 2012 financial report had been qualified. Required a) Would King & Queen be liable to EFL? Provide specific case references to support your answer. b) Would your answer change if EFL had...

King Case Study Individual Paper

... U.S. v. King Case Study Elise Flanagan BCC 402 Bobby Kemp 14 March 2016 Introduction The purpose of this work is to discuss the relevancy of the court case the United States of America v. Richard D. King, Jr. and the influence it had on future cybercrime cases. A description will be given as to how the Fourth and Fifth Amendments are applied to cybercrimes, as well as an explanation how the Fourth and Fifth Amendments were addressed in this case. Further explanation on how the King ruling may apply to other cases involving computers or other devices that contain electronic evidence is provided. The 4th and 5th Amendments Applied To Cybercrimes The 4th Amendment can be applied to cybercrimes, but not the 5th Amendment. However, the 4th Amendment’s protection in regards to computers, the Internet and cybercrimes can only be applied to data content, not all content. An example of data content is found within remote storage files on computers and private email interactions. When the data is non-content data, i.e. email addresses, there is no assumption of guaranteed coverage and protection ruled under the 4th Amendment. Unlike the 4th Amendment, the 5th Amendment cannot always provide legal protection to an individual. The federal court made such a ruling in 2012, asserting that personal computers lacked the coverage many assumed was in place after the 4th was seen as a viable use for protection of individual rights. Application to This Case The 4th and 5th Amendments...
