BLAW3700 Pepperdine University Blakey v. Continental Airlines – Excelsior Writers |
Excelsior Writers |

Please read the Blakey v. Continental Airlines case. You will note that the court did not squarely answer the question about Continental’s liability for what happened in “the forum”. However, the court did comment on the use of electronic forums and other new technologies and did comment on the rules about when a company is responsible for what its employees do. What do you think about this case? Do you think that Continental should be responsible for the harm caused to Tammy Blakey in the discussion forum? What legal claims could apply to her case against the pilots and to her case against Continental? Simply answer the questions.
