READ THE CASE YOU ARE ANALYZING WHICH IS: Morgold, Inc. v Keeler, 891 F.

Supp. 1461 (1995). CONTACT THE LIBRARY TO ASSIST YOU WITH LexisNexis (legal

research company you have free access to) if you need assistance. I wanted to give you practice

looking up a case so you know how to find them. You can also Google it but the proper case

format will be found using LexisNexis.

Complete the sections below and be sure to delete all information in red font. Write a 2- to 3-

page (MINIMUM) research memorandum to the CEO or Executive Director of the Company

for the Case

USE THE MEMO TEMPLATE PROVIDED BY YOUR INSTRUCTOR. Delete the language

in red font.

Structure your memo as follows:

Facts:

Succinctly state the facts relevant to the resolution of the case you are analyzing. Doing

so involves reviewing the facts to include only those relevant to answering the

question(s) at issue in your memorandum.

Question Presented:

State the question or questions your memorandum seeks to answer. If possible, present it

in a single sentence or two (e.g., “Will Mr. Smith have to include the value of the

property in his income?”). Most (if not all) of the memoranda you will be assigned will

present a single, overarching question. Granted, there may be multiple issues that you

have to analyze to answer this question, but all of them go toward answering the larger

question–such as whether the taxpayer has to include the value of some property in his or

her income.

Short Answer:

State the answer to the “Question(s) Presented” as clearly and succinctly as possible–

again, preferably in a single sentence or a few sentences. (For example, your Short

Answer to the Question Presented above might be, “Mr. Smith will have to include the

value of the property in his income.”)

Analysis:

This is the substantive portion of your memorandum and is worth the majority of the

points on the assignment. It is where you present all of the analysis that is required to

support your Short Answer. In performing your analysis, you should use the general

“IRAC” approach you have learned and utilized to date, although you will not have

specific sections within the Analysis listed as “Issue, ” “Rule, ” “Analysis, ” and

“Conclusion. ” Once you have identified the issue or issues that you have to resolve to

answer the Short Answer, you should address the authority for your position. Your

analysis for each of these issues should review these authorities and then apply them to

the facts of the case to draw conclusions.

Recommendations:

Finally, it is very important that you analyze the case from a business perspective and

provide recommendations on how a business could have avoided or mitigated the legal

issue involved in the case. What recommendations will you make to management to

prevent this issue from occurring in the future?

NOTE: Grading Criteria

Demonstrating critical thinking in answering the action items above and

incorporating the answers effectively into a memo: 0 – 40 points

Presentation (flow of ideas and critical thought): 0 – 20 points

Potential point reductions associated with spelling, grammar, and writing style: 0
