Name: Sevan Gorgonian Business Law 120, Thursday Class November 19, 2020 Article 1: “Johnny Depp loses libel case against Britain’s Sun newspaper” Link: https://www.cnn.com/2020/11/02/media/johnny-depp-libel-ruling-scli-intlgbr/index.html This article I read is about Johnny Depp suing a newspaper publisher called The Sun newspaper. What happened was the newspaper wrote an article where they said Depp would “beat his wife Amber Heard, causing her to suffer injury and that he threatened to kill her many times.” Depp sued them for libel, which is defamation because he said it ruined his reputation and the statements written were false. This article says he lost the case because the judge said “the evidence shows what the newspaper wrote were substantially true” and therefore it is not defamation if it is true. In class I learned that defamation is a type of tort. Defamation can be either spoken (slander) or written (libel). Defamation is when someone makes a false statement of fact, about a person and it is published to third parties. In this Depp case, the judge said what the newspaper reported was “true” and therefore not defamation. Article 2: “Orange deputy arrested on false imprisonment charge, put on leave” Link: https://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/breaking-news/os-ne-orange-sheriff-deputyarrested-unpaid-leave-20201102-565qq6je25d2tiztdis3h6hk3y-story.html This article discusses a deputy sheriff officer who was apparently terminated from his job for false imprisonment of another person. The article does not discuss what he actually did. In class I learned that false imprisonment is a tort where one person puts someone in a bounded area without their consent. I learned that there is a “shopkeepers rule” excemption where a store employee can detain a customer if they believe they have committed a theft. Article 3: “Supreme Court Does Not Take Up Pennsylvania Absentee Ballot Case” Link: https://www.usnews.com/news/elections/articles/2020-11-16/supreme-court-declinesto-take-up-pennsylvania-absentee-ballot-case This article discusses the recent election issues with President Trump. The article discusses that the Supreme Court of the United States has refused to take the case on challenging the Pennsylvania Absentee votes.

In class I learned about the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) being the highest court in America and the most powerful. The SCOTUS does not take every case appealed but instead only those cases that is important to all Americans but even then they can decide not to take the case. If the SCOTUS does take a case and they rule one way or another, it is to be followed by all courts in America. In class I learned that we have a 2 court system – the state court and federal court system. I also learned recently that a new Justice was appointed to the Supreme Court.
