The purpose of this individual assignment is to have the student evaluate the legal, moral and ethical responsibilities. This assignment will require the student to engage in critical thinking and apply tort elements and concepts to this scenario.

You own University Heights Apartments, a business that rents primarily to students. One evening, your tenant Sharon is attacked by an intruder who forces the lock on the sliding glass door of her ground-floor apartment. Sharon’s screams attract the attention of Darryl, your resident manager, who comes to Sharon’s aid. Together, Darryl and Sharon drive the intruder off, but not before they both are badly cut by the intruder.

Write a paper of 700- to 1,050-words answering the questions posed by this scenario.

  • Is the intruder liable for what he has done? Why or why not?
  • Do you have legal responsibilities to Sharon and Darryl? Why or why not?
  • Do you have ethical responsibilities to Sharon and Darryl? Explain. If there are ethical responsibilities, what are they?
  • What should you do to prevent or mitigate such risks?

Cite to at least three peer-reviewed references, identified and defined in the Instructor Policies (Spiering, 2016, Researching Assignments). Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines.

Required elements

Students earn their grades based on the Grade Rubric. It will be inserted with comments at the end of each graded paper, along with other specific comments inserted directly into the paper itself. A grading scale (i.e. A -F) is provided in the Instructor Policies (Spiering, 2016). So, students earn high grades by satisfying each bullet point in each section – Content, Organization/Development and Mechanics.

Please note that the Mechanics section of the Grade Rubric requires the integration of research in APA format, including in-text and reference citations.
