3. Cliff lives across the street from Scott. One  day Cliff backs his truck out of the driveway and strikes Scott’s car.  Scott is not home when this happens. Scott’s other neighbor, Jon, texted  Scott and told him what happened. There is video of the accident on  Jon’s Ring video camera. When Scott arrives home, he checks his car and  discovers that it was not damaged.
A. If Scott sues Cliff, what will prevent Scott from obtaining a financial judgment against Cliff? Explain your answer.

4. Cliff rents an apartment at the Sunshine  apartments owed by Jon in Metropolis. Cliff complained to Jon that there  was no smoke alarm in his apartment but Jon failed to install an alarm  after several requests. Scott also lives at the Sunshine apartments and  he sells cocaine to people in Metropolis. Brad does not live at the  Sunshine apartments but he frequently buys cocaine from Scott. Brad  knows Scott keeps a lot of money in his apartment from sales of cocaine.  Brad broke into Scott’s apartment one night when Scott was not home and  stole $7,000 from Scott. Brad set Scott’s apartment on fire so no one  would find Brad’s fingerprints. Five apartments are completely destroyed  and Cliff escapes his apartment but is badly burned in the fire because  he did not have a smoke alarm to alert him until the fire had spread.

A.  Identify each person (A. Cliff  B. Jon  C. Scott  D. Brad) in this  story as either a victim, plaintiff, suspect, or defendant in a criminal  or civil case. Keep in mind that more than one label can apply to one  person and that it is possible for acts to be both criminal and civil.  List each person, label them, and explain and justify your answers for  each.

5. Scott leases a car lot from Jon for $1000 per  month to start his used car business. Jon needs the first month’s  payment 10 days after Scott signs the lease so Jon can pay back-taxes to  the City before the City forecloses on Jon’s property. Brad agreed to  buy a truck from Scott and Scott will make $1000 in profit selling the  truck to Brad. Brad is about to drive to the car lot and pay Scott for  the truck when Cliff points a gun at Brad and forces Brad to give Cliff  all of the money.

Brad now has no money to give Scott and Scott  can’t pay Jon the first months lease. Since Jon doesn’t receive the  money from Scott, Jon can’t pay the back-taxes to the city and Jon loses  his car-lot.
