SAMPLE QUIZ - Fall 2001 1. Ethel, a resident of Norfolk traveling on Granby Street, was struck by a Butch Beer Co. truck, causing $100,000 damage. Butch Beer is incorporated in Virginia, where its principal place of business is located, although it is a name-brand beer doing business in all 50 states. While recovering in Florida, Ethel retains an attorney there, who files suit in Florida, serving Butch's registered agent in Florida. Which is correct? (a) Because the accident occurred in Virginia, only the Virginia state or federal courts have jurisdiction over the person of Butch, so that Ethel's suit can be brought only in Virginia. (b) Because the accident occurred in the same state where Ethel resides, there would be no subject matter jurisdiction in any federal court. (c) There is subject matter jurisdiction and jurisdiction over the person in any federal or state court, because Butch is doing business in all states. (d) There would be subject matter jurisdiction and jurisdiction over the person in any state court, including Florida's. 2. Vinnie's contract with the Cleveland Browns Football Club states that the parties shall go to mandatory arbitration for any salary dispute. A salary dispute arises between the parties, and the parties go to arbitration. The arbitrators decide the dispute in favor of Vinnie and make a salary award. With these facts: (a) The Browns and Vinnie have contracted away their right to have the court decide the dispute, because arbitration clauses are binding. (b) After the arbitrators' award, if the Browns refuse to honor the award, Vinnie can go to court to enforce the award. (c) The arbitration award is binding and enforceable, and subject to very limited grounds for reversal by a court. (d) All of the above. jrbrown C:\TEMP\SampleQuiz.Fall2001.wpd
