Mark, a citizen of Georgia, was crossing a street in Atlanta

1. Mark, a citizen of Georgia, was crossing a street in Atlanta when he was struck by a car driven by David, a citizen of New York visiting Atlanta. The car was owned by David’s employer, a Delaware corporation that has its principal place of business in Atlanta, Georgia. Mark sues both David and the corporation in federal district court in Atlanta alleging dam- ages in the amount of $500,000. Does the court have subject matter jurisdiction? Why or why not?

2. How do you help prevent lawsuits in your business? Answer generally and you can add any industry specific considerations, if you wish.

3. As the vice president for sales of a company that manufactures and sells commercial carpet, you notice an alarming increase in the number of customers filing complaints with your company service representatives. Of particular importance is the number of complaints that involve claims in excess of $10,000. Because these large dollar amounts can lead to lawsuits being filed, you want to investigate what is causing the increase in complaints and how your company can be processing these complaints to avoid burdensome litigation. What steps should you take to discover, in the most accurate and efficient manner, the reasons customers are filing complaints? What is the distinction between mediation and arbitration? Should your company’s sales contracts include a clause that requires the par- ties to attempt resolution of dispute by mediation? By arbitration? By some other mechanisms? If your company’s sales contracts did include a dispute resolution (other than litigation) clause, when can the courts still be used?
