Plaintiff for Darryl

A in-depth look into the case of the plaintiff


What we believe

What we believe….

  • Fundamental Argument:

  • Vanessa is liable for damages against Darryl for:

    • False Imprisonment

    • Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress

    • Slander

    • Vicarious Liability --against the Carrousel Motor Hotel


Hypothesis

Hypothesis

  • How did we come up with this theory?

    • The facts in this case are as follows:

      • Vanessa threatened Darryl with his job unless he didn’t stand into the hotel’s freezer.

      • Whilst in the freezer, Vanessa encouraged the other employees to belittle and mock him.

      • Later turns off the light, leaving him for several hours


False imprisonment

False Imprisonment

  • An act or omission by defendant that causes a person of reasonable sensitivity to be confined for restrained.

    • Examples:

      • Vanessa, his boss, forced him to enter the freezer

      • Threatening him with the termination of his job

      • Said to him that she locked the door, turned off the lights and left him for several hours.


Slander

Slander

  • The defamation of one’s person by speaking. This tends to injure the plaintiff’s reputation and expose the plaintiff to public hatred.

    • Examples:

      • Vanessa makes fun of Darryl’s stutter and low intelligence

      • Vanessa encourages the other employees to join in.

      • Darryl was not able to defend himself at this time as he was imprisoned against his will.


Intentional infliction of emotional distress iied

Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress (IIED)

  • Use of extreme and outrageous conduct that transcends all bounds of decency.

  • It is committed intentionally and the defendant must cause physical harm with emotional distress as a result.

    • Examples:

      • Darryl suffered severe frostbite and his toes and fingers
