FACTS:
On January 1, 2015, Jackson Delivery Services entered into a threeyear contractual agreement with Purple Rain Digital Company.
Pursuant to the agreement, Jackson Delivery Services is required to
deliver to all Best Buy stores on Tuesdays and Fridays of each week.
Purple Rain Digital Company pays $1,000,000.00 per month to
Jackson Delivery Services pursuant to the contract. Best Buy has a
10-year contract with Purple Rain Digital Company wherein
pursuant to said contract, Best Buy pays Purple Rain Digital
Company $15 million dollars a year for their products that are sold
in exclusively in their stores. On October 1, 2015, a 30-day truck
driver strike caused all delivery truck deliveries to cease for Jackson
Delivery Services, so no deliveries were made. During the strike,
Houston Delivery Services, aware of the strike, hired non-union
drivers and contacted Purple Rain Digital Company to perform all
deliveries during the strike only. On November 1, 2015, a day after
the strike ceased, a severe snow storm caused a 30-day delay on all
deliveries, meaning there were no deliveries in the month of
November. On December 1, 2015, the roof at the Best Buy location
at Arundel Mills Shopping Center collapsed and the store was
closed until January 1, 2016. Therefore, between October 1, 2015

QUESTION NO. 1:
On Monday, February 1, after a seven-day snow storm
compiling up to 18 inches of snow, Tyson took his daughter,
Tiana, age 7, to her elementary school in Baltimore City.
Because of the number of days that it snowed, the only areas
that were plowed were the roads, parking lots and some, but
not all sidewalks. As did most parents that drove their children
to school, Tyson parked in the school parking lot and walked
Tiana to the school building using the sidewalk. While walking
Tiana on the sidewalk, she ran away from him to play in the
snow pile near the doorâ??s entrance where other students were
playing and building snowmen. Tyson chased after Tiana and
slipped and fell on black ice on the sidewalk, fracturing his hip.

QUESTION NO. 2:
On Saturday, August 20th, John and Jeff purchased a food truck
delivery truck for their recently started business from an auto
auction in Pennsylvania. The name of their business was ABâ??s
Food Delivery, Inc., which operates in Baltimore, Maryland.
The truck was an older model white truck with no markings on
the side; and because they just purchased the vehicle, they only
had temporary tags.
While driving from Pennsylvania to
Maryland, it started to rain heavily and they were forced to the
side of a road near Hunt Valley, Maryland because the
windshield wipers on the van were inoperable. Thus, John and
Jeff sat in the van waiting for the rain to cease. About 30
minutes prior to John and Jeff pulling over, an older white van
that was reported stolen was used in an armed robbery of a
bank in Baltimore, Maryland. There were 4 masked men
involved in the robbery and during the escape from the bank,
the armed security guard was shot in the head by the robbers.
The white van was reported as last being seen headed north
towards Pennsylvania.
A dispatch was sent to all law
enforcement officers. Officer Johnson received the dispatch
and he, as were all other officers, were on the lookout for a
white van with 4 masked men. While driving in the heavy rain,
Officer Johnson observed the white van that John and Jeff
were in pulled over on the side of the road. Officer Johnson
initially drove by the vehicle and attempted to look into the
vehicle and saw two people not wearing masks sitting in the
front two seats. Officer Johnson could see nothing else. Officer
Johnson circled back and pulled up about 50 feet behind the
van. John and Jeff did not see Officer Johnson pull up behind
them. In fact, both John and Jeff had fallen asleep in the van.
Officer Johnson called for back-up officers by stating â??possible
suspect van� located; and then approached the van. When
Officer Johnson walked up to the passengerâ??s side of the
window, he tapped on the passengerâ??s side window with his gun
drawn, which startled John, who was seated in the passenger
seat. Officer Johnson instructed John to step out of the vehicle
with his hands up, which John did. Officer Johnson then
instructed conducted a pat-down of John for weapons and
found nothing but about $5000,00 in cash rolled up in Johnâ??s
back pocket in a rubber band. Officer Johnson then instructed
Jeff to step across the passengerâ??s side of the vehicle to exit on
the passengerâ??s side of the van.
As Officer Johnson was
instructing Jeff to exit, Officer Arrington pulled up and
observed Officer Johnson instructing Jeff to exit. Officer
Arrington pulled his weapon out and approached the location
where Jeff was exiting the van. As Jeff was exiting the van, he
tripped over a tool in the passenger side and fell forward
towards Officer Johnson. Officer Arrington immediately shot
Jeff five times in the chest. Jeff died instantly.
