Case Brief: Orlando V. Cole

...Case Brief Orlando v. Cole (2010) FACTS Joseph M. Orlando filed a complaint for slander against fellow attorney, Garrick F. Cole. Allegedly, Orlando suffered harm to his reputation as a lawyer when Cole made false comments about his role in an investigation involving a 17-year-old student and a high school basketball coach, Thomas A. Atwater. At the time, Atwater was unrepresented and approached Orlando to admit that he had in fact sexually assaulted the high school student. He signed an affidavit and confessed to the police, while Orlando spoke to the media and gave them a copy of Atwater’s affidavit. Cole, who was now representing Atwater, told the same reporters that the affidavit was “inaccurate” and Orlando’s actions were “fraudulent” and “deceitful”. ISSUE Are the comments made by Cole reasonably susceptible of a defamatory connotation? Are Cole’s statements ones of fact, opinion, or a combination of both? RULE “A statement is defamatory in the circumstances if it discredits a person in the minds of any considerable and respectable class of the community.” “The determination whether a statement is one of fact or opinion is generally considered a question of law” because “under the First Amendment, there is no such thing as a false idea”. APPLICATION In this case, the court concluded that the comments made by Cole are susceptible of a defamatory connotation because the terms used include “inaccurate”, “fraudulent”, and “deceitful”- which all......

Coles Marketing

...shopping experience of their customers ood progress in the second quarter and customers rewarded Coles for its continued investment in lower prices as part of its “Down, Down” campaign. reflected in improvements in perception and increasing customer numbers. good old-fashioned share of mind; a consideration that is frequently neglected in the search for ‘engagement’ and originality The problem for Coles is that Woolworths as the larger and more profitable player has deeper pockets. According to Nielsen Ad Ex figures Woolworths’ adspend in January to November 2010 was $89.4 million to Coles’ $71.6 million, and $76.9 million to $62.6 million respectively for 2011. So outspending Woolworths hasn’t been an option. ‘out shout’ Woolworths with its smaller budget. Coles has seen a “massive jump in brand awareness” over the past two years that has helped it “eat away at Woolworth’s leadership”. Not about brand awareness. Brand salience - comes to mind first. Coles’ almost constant stream of new initiatives over the past two years has managed to achieve (apart from keeping Woolworths in mainly a reactive mode) is to give it a sense of momentum. people tend to gravitate to brands that are seen to be setting the pace in their categories. reconfirming a successful brand positioning is the default defensive strategy for a market leader being attacked by a challenger approach. However in the face of Coles forward looking onslaught the use of its old commercials probably just made......

...Recommendations to be followed 1. Following own way to do job rather than coping the competitors: - One of the most successful retailers in Britain, Charles Clore, was once asked the secret of good retailing. He said three things had to be considered — the site, the site and the site. In branding, the most important thing is to differentiate products — if your product is the same as everyone else's, why should anyone buy it? (Murphy, 1988). So Coles need to differentiate itself from the other competitors. In these days it is very hard to differentiate Woolworths and Coles from each other as both of them are assumed as a low price stores, so there is need to make the store “Coles” different from the competitor. For this there is need to make the way to do the job in different way so that brand becomes more popular with the people instead of the competitor. 2. Target effectively: - The first need for any business is to find which sector of the consumer they want to sell their product i.e. to see what the target audience of the business is. If the business find the right target group then the business is able to find the right track where they need to differentiate themselves from others to target more and more number of consumers. Differing cultures, economic development stages, resources, politics, and consumption behaviours require multiple emphasis on different things in different markets (Melewar and Saunders, 1998). There are so many places in the world......

Uss Cole Bombing (2000)

...ase SAILAJA BODEPUDI USS COLE BOMBING (2000) On October 12, 2000, suicide terrorists exploded a small boat alongside the USS Cole—a Navy Destroyer—as it was refueling in the Yemeni port of Aden. Yemen plays a key part in the ability for U.S. and coalition maritime forces to operate in the region. The blast ripped a 40-foot-wide hole near the waterline of the Cole, killing 17 American sailors and injuring many more. This boat bombing was a new methodology, which was used by the terrorists to attacks on their counterparts. As a consequence of the attack, concentrated on executing approaches to enhance U.S strategies and practices for mitigating terrorist attacks on U.S. was used by the terrorists to attacks on their counterparts. Three groups claimed responsibility for the Aden attack – the Islamic Army of Aden-Abyan previously unknown in Yemen, the Army of Mohammed, and the Islamic Deterrence Forces (IDF). A suspected al Qaeda terrorist wanted in connection with the October 2000 bombing of the USS Cole exploded himself with a grenade late Wednesday as Yemeni security strengths surrounded him in Yemen's capital city, security sources said. Authorities had gone to a suspected al Qaeda fort, a house in a poor area of Sana's downtown, and a firefight resulted. The suspect bounced into a taxi, and as authorities attempted to stop the vehicle, the man hauled out an explosive and was clearly attempting to toss it when it blasted in his grasp, sources said. A police identified......

Cole Readings

...Cole suggests that the American government should reduce certain services provided only to American citizens and not to the immigrants that are considered illegitimate. For instance, aliens should only be provided some type of healthcare and education for school age children. He claims that these services should be provided in order to protect the United States from issues further in the future. If healthcare was declined to those who live in the U.S undocumented, then America could eventually be at risk for certain diseases that may not have been treated because they were not able to receive treatment. We have to be considerate of the fact that immigrants may not be here in a legal bind but they are still here physically and we make contact with them on frequent basis. In my opinion, I believe that that the state of California should be responsible for enforcing immigrant laws but not for the financial burden of having illegal immigrants. The federal government should be responsible for the funding of the immigrant who have made America their new home. Ultimately immigration is not just California’s issue, granted that they may have more than a state that doesn’t surround other countries, but it is America’s problem. Therefore, the Federal government should handle all of the costs of hosting immigrants no matter the cost. Cole, Question 7 In the fifteenth paragraph Cole argues that “culture separatism rarely survives a generation.” He supports his argument by saying......

Super Hero Cole

...Superhero Cole I live in a city named Rocket Cove with many Superheroes. Superhero Cole is the most powerful hero there is. He has many powers. He loves helping others in need whether it’s carrying groceries for the elderly or stopping crime. Coles main job is to make sure his people are safe from the evil Zen Cole. Superhero Cole’s super powers are shooting ice, fire, super speed, super strength, and can also teleport from place to place when he senses danger. He lives in a tower on the 100th floor in a building named Rocket Cave. One day Zen Cole was trying to break into a jewelry store to steal a rare gem named the Lexington Rock. It was early morning and Selena the manager was in the middle of getting the store ready so that she can open. She heard a loud bang as Zen Cole kicked in the door. Superhero Cole sensed danger and quickly used his teleportation and at an instant he was in the closet of the jewelry store. He slowly opened the close door and saw Zen Cole breaking into the lock box to retrieve the Lexington Rock. Superhero Cole quickly jumped into to action by grabbing Zen and throwing him across the room. Zen quickly got up and the two were battling each other. Superhero punched, kicked, and threw Zen over and over. Zen gave up and starting running away. Cole began running after him and chasing him across Rocket Cove City. People watched as this chase was happening and were ducking and running for cover. Zen turned into an abandoned alley and it was a...

Character Profile of Cole Matthews

...* It helps because the jurors feel safe because no one in the court including the accused know who they are so if the side against the accused their identities will be safe. It is bad though too because then there is no way of knowing if a juror has a personal connection to the case. Page 81 * Proof that jurors are treated fairly: -both the defence and the prosecution had input on who was in the jury -the jurors are shown a picture of the accused to ensure that none of them knew the person. -each juror votes anonymously and in private -jurors have to save their judgment until the end of the trial until all the evidence has been read. * I don’t think that there is anything in the story that says the jurors can say what the sentence will be. They can help the case go one way or another but they can’t control the whole outcome. The accused is either not guilty or guilty. Page 82 * By volunteering with an advocacy group I could help in individuals improve their life. Also I would be part of an organization that tries to influence the justice system and the government to make changes. Page 83 * They both agree that punishing someone isn’t the only way to achieve justice. They also agree that harsher penalties and laws don’t work. They think that Canada is failing, and that the present system is not preventing crime in our country Page 84 * Elders in our community serve as role models for youth, and could act as leaders and supporters.

...Request For Permission To Pursue Research |Paychex, Inc | |Memo To: Frank Fiorille, Director CC: Michael Silsbee, Risk Management Supervisor: Doug Baxter, Credit and Banking Risk Manager From: Danielle Cole Date: 3/16/2010 Re: Request for research proposal Request for Approval I’d like your approval for me to continue with my research on the benefits of switching to a lockbox for our invoice payments. In this memo, you will find some of the highlighted benefits that I feel will help you make your decision for me to continue with this research. A lockbox is a P.O. Box that is set up with our bank that our customers will be able to send their payments too. The bank has a machine that will open, sort and process the checks. Once the day’s checks are processed, the bank will create a file and send it to us. The Information Technology will load the file into our Oracle system and once the nightly processes run, the file will post automatically into our billing system. In my initial research of the benefits of switching to a lockbox, I have found many advantages. Switching to a lockbox could mean a reduction in costs, less errors, it would be more time efficient, and we would have an easier look up process. Switching to a lockbox could save us money by possibly reducing our head count. We have the potential to reduce our head count by two people. We could also save money because we could cut out fuel reimbursement casts. If we had a lockbox, the......

Woolworths vs Coles

...APPLE INC. VS SAMSUNG In Australia, the electronic industry is dominated by oligopoly. The two companies from the electronic industry, Apple Inc. and Samsung, control more than 46% of the market share just from smartphones which gives them dominance that has led to increased difficulties for other firms to enter the market, decreased prices for consumers and higher profits. The competition between these two industries also has caused uproars in employment issues, court cases and copyright controversies. Apple The similarity of Apple Inc. and Samsung products have led to what became known as the mobile device patent wars due to the extensive litigation in fierce competition in the market. Since these two companies are in the top 15 manufactures, (1st Apple 25.66% and 2nd Samsung 17.47%), the impact of competition between the two companies caused Apple to sue Samsung for one if its component suppliers. Then during autumn 2011, an Australian federal court granted Apple’s request for an injunction against Samsung’s Galaxy Tab. However, the junction Apple sought to block the Tab was denied by the Australian Court after Christmas. The collusive activities of Apple and Samsung have increased the competition in the electronic industry. Because of their large market share, this control has led to increased difficulties for other companies such as Nokia to enter the market. In reference to the pie graph, the past year proved as the year that Apple and Samsung......

Coles Jewellery

...The buyer decision process consist of five steps which will be analyse to have a better understanding of how consumers buy jewellery. The first step is the problem recognition, in this part of the process consumers realize they have a need to be fulfill and consider why they want the product (eg. For themselsves or present) and how much are they willing to expend. The price of the product is important in this industry. A research made in the US jewellery market shows that 87.2% of the purchases are for products under 500 USD as seen in Figure 2 (Aiello 2009). Taking this into consideration, the product offer by the brand will be between that price range. The second step is the information search which includes friends recommendations, the model and advertising. This is where the campaign needs to raise awareness of the brand in consumers minds. Also, it has to inform consumer of the lastest product designs and the benefits of purchasing it. The next three steps are the evaluation and selection of the possible purchases, store choice and actual purchase and the post-purchase behavior which includes surveys regarding the product. According to Jokinen (2011), 56% of the purchases are for personal use. This means that most people buy jewellery as a self-gifts to improve their image and project it to other people. The social cognitive theory analyzes the relation between the environment, the internal factors and social context will determine their purchase behavior. The......
