consumer protection and unethical business practices

Use case law to answer the following questions:


·        Should the court grant the defendants’ motion to dismiss? Was the conduct of

·        Dow Chemical and Shell Oil ethical?

·        Was Standard Fruit’s use of the U.S.-banned pesticide ethical?

·        Were the defendants arguing inconvenient forum to avoid a jury trial and Texas laws regarding personal injury and wrongful death? If so, is that ethical?

·         If goods are not consistent with some sets of standards but are basically okay, is it ethical to sell them?

·        If they are dangerous, how dangerous is too dangerous?


·         Should it matter whether consumers in a developing country cannot afford products meeting higher but more expensive Western standards?
