  1. Assume that BTF had fired their night security guard on February 1 and never replaced the position. Thus, no guard was present when the fire started. Articulate a possible defense for CI and OC based on this fact.
  1. Suppose that after the incident the sales manager of Data Management Inc., one of CI’s competitors, is having lunch with Sheldon, the chief information officer of City Hospital. City Hospital had an existing contract with CI to maintain City Hospital’s network. During lunch, Data Management’s sales manager tells Sheldon about the fire incident and also states that, based on his personal knowledge, CI was a shoddy outfit that had a poor reputation in the industry. The sales manager then proposed a new Data Management information system for City Hospital at a lower price than CI. When Sheldon was reluctant to consider the offer, Data Management’s sales manager offered to pay out any penalty that City Hospital suffered as a result of canceling the CI contract. Sheldon cancels the contract with CI citing customer service problems. What possible torts were committed? What are the requirements for CI to recover damages?
