It was addressed to We Are Not Criminals Inc. to the attention of William, Fraud Specialist department. While doing his rounds, Jack put the letter in his bag, which made it the sixth identical letter received for the same address.

William, fraud specialist, put him in a room with no windows and locked the door. We Are Not Criminals Inc. has been under investigation by the police, for corruption, bid-rigging, and price maintenance.

What advice would you give to Jack if he is able to get away from William? Is there anything wrong with corruption, bidrigging, and price maintenance?

37. Joan operated a bowling alley in a commercial area that was adjacent to a residential area. Many small children used the parking lot near the bowling alley as a playground and Joan was constantly ordering the children off the premises for fear that they might be injured by a motor vehicle. Recently, Joan has suffered several break-ins into her bowling alley by thieves who used the roof as a means of gaining access to the property. Unable to receive any assistance from the police, Joan took matters into her own hands and imported the largest python she could find. She called the python Avenger. She created a living area for the python near the area accessed by the thieves and said with pride, that would show them. Two young boys, about six years of age, who Joan named Trouble and Nuisance, continually climbed onto the roof of the bowling alley using the fence at the back of the building. Joan had ordered them off the roof on several occasions but Trouble and Nuisance did not listen to Joan and would return within minutes once she was out of sight. Trouble and Nuisance continued to use the roof in spite of Joan's warnings. On one occasion, when Joan was away, Trouble and Nuisance, climbed onto the roof and walked towards Avenger's living area occupied and guarded by Avenger. Avenger quickly wrapped himself around Trouble. Nuisance, terrified at the site of the Avenger and shocked at Trouble about to be consumed by Avenger, lost his footing as he tried to runaway from Avenger. Nuisance fell to the ground and was seriously injured. Avenger, escaped into a nearby sewer with Trouble. December 14th, 2011, marks the first anniversary of the disappearance of Avenger and Trouble. Trouble and Nuisance's family brought an action against Joan. Discuss the liability of Joan and her defences if any. Render a decision.
