Jordan Barela Chapter 6 IRAC’s McKee v Laurion Issue:  Laurion was a man who was hospitalized after a stroke.  He was seen by a neurologist,  McKee.  The doctor discharged Laurion right away, and Laurion immediately mentioned to his  family that the doctor was rude to him.  The patient’s daughter wrote McKee a bad review  online, and McKee asserted claims for defamation.   Rule:  “Truth is a complete defense to a defamation action and true statements, however  disparaging, are not actionable.”  The plaintiff has to prove falsity in order to successfully have a defamation claim.   Analysis:  There was no issue of fact for the false statements.  At the most the online postings  were just minor inaccuracies and can’t serve as a basis of a defamation claim.   Conclusion:  The court properly granted summary judgement in favor Laurion and the case was  dismissed.   Palsgraf v. Long Island Railroad Co Issue:  Helen Plasgraf was waiting for a train as a man was running with a package to try to get  on the moving train.  He jumped on board, and a couple of the train guards pushed him because  he was unsteady causing him to drop his package.  The package was full of fireworks and as they fell on the track they exploded causing harm to Palsgraf.  She then sued the company for  negligence.   Rule:  To determine if the guard was negligent, the must find it being foreseeable.  He must  show that the harm done was unintended.  Analysis:  Considering the guards were unaware that the man had fireworks in his package, the  actions could have not been foreseeable causing the railroad company to not be negligent.   Conclusion:  The case was dismissed because it was not foreseeable.          Taylor v. Baseball Club of Seattle, LP Issue:  Delinda Taylor went to a Seattle Mariners baseball game with her boyfriend and her two  sons.  The seats were 4 rows up from the field.  As the pitchers were warming up for the game,  the ball got away from one of the player and hit Taylor in the face causing serious injuries.   Taylor sued for negligence. Rule:  A spectator who is familiar with the game should know the risk of sitting where she was  without a screen protecting her seats.   Analysis:  It was not considered negligence because it’s assumed that attending the game at that  section of the stadium is a risk.  Conclusion:  The court affirmed judgment in favor of Baseball Club of Seattle, and the case was dismissed.
