Identify how Curt Flood’s efforts and legacy help illustrate at least one legal or ethical concept from three of those 10 units. (NOTE: If you choose Antitrust as one of your three entries, you may not choose Labor Law as a separate entry.) It’s not enough, for example, to complete Part One by simply stating: “Tort Law, Risk Management, and Agency Law.” For each of your three responses, you should elaborate with something like this: “TORT LAW: Flood was a victim of trespass and conversion of personal property when one of his St. Louis teammates stole four of his seven Gold Gloves. His teammate, in defense of the conversion claim, contended that Flood had given him permission to hold onto the four Gold Gloves until Flood built a larger trophy case in his home. The jury wasn’t convinced by the defense and awarded Flood damages.” (That never happened, so don’t use it as one of your three examples. You must provide actual correlations between Flood’s story and the concepts we’ve studied. But hopefully you get the idea.) There is no minimum or maximum word count for your three responses in Part One. I’m more interested in your grasp of the concepts and depth of thinking.
Describe how different the world of sports would be today if Flood had not taken the risks and the stand that he did. This needs to be in your own words; you will learn about Flood from your textbook reading and in class, and I expect you’ll come up with ideas for this part of the assignment on your own. Needless to say, the plagiarism monitors will be activated. Your response in Part Two must be at least 250 words.
