Identify each and every applicable cause of action (the legal theories) that apply. Who is liable to whom?

Suzy and Samuel Shopper are walking on 5th Avenue near Saks Fifth Avenue and notice a person purporting to sell luxury goods on the sidewalk including, without limitation, Rolex watches and Louis Vuitton handbags. The Rolex watches are selling for $99 each and the bags for $999. Mike Merchant, the person selling the merchandise, swears to Sam and Suzy: “These goods are all authentic; they are ‘seconds;’ they have only minor imperfections.” (“Seconds” are authentic goods, but with minor imperfections, which prevent them from being sold at top retail price.)

Can A-OK immediately demand payment from Jack’s Uncle Joe?

After graduating from high school, Jack Tern decided to become a truck driver. The A-OK Truck Driving Academy offered a two-week, intensive, one-on-one (instructor-student) course with training on two- and three-axle tractors and on 45-foot single and double trucks, for $4,000 cash. Because Jack had no money, A-OK agreed to take his written promise to pay the tuition fee in monthly installments of $130 for four years provided he could get a surety or guarantor to promise to pay if he defaulted. Jack’s Uncle Joe signed a guaranty agreement, and Jack enrolled and completed the course. After six months, however, he lost his job as a truck driver and could not continue making the monthly payments. Can A-OK immediately demand payment from Jack’s Uncle Joe?

If you were the judge, in whose favor would you rule? Why?

While living in her home country of Tanzania, Sophia Kiwanuka signed an employment contract with Anne Margareth Bakilana, a Tanzanian living in Washington, D.C. Kiwanuka traveled to the United States to work as a babysitter and maid in Bakilana’s house. When Kiwanuka arrived, Bakilana confiscated her passport, held her in isolation, and forced her to work long hours under threat of having her deported. Kiwanuka worked seven days a week without breaks and was subjected to regular verbal and psychological abuse by Bakilana.
