An owner owned a small company in the business of building, installing, and maintaining a machine used in the purification of steel. The company did not sell the machine invented and designed by the owner. It would only lease it accompanied with a service contract. On May 15, the owner inspected a machine leased to a steel company, as required by the service contract. Two days later, an explosion on the steel company’s premises caused severe damage and injured a carrier service employee in the process of making a delivery. The owner inspected the premises after the accident and told his friend, “The explosion was caused by my machine. I should have opened it up when I had last inspected it, but I was running late.” The employee asserted an action against the steel company. The owner was not available to testify at the trial because he had subsequently died from injuries he sustained when another one of his boilers exploded..
Should the owner’s friend be allowed to recount the owner’s statements about the cause of the steel company’s accident?CorrectIncorrect
An employee was accused by her employer of embezzlement. The employee had, by her own admission, taken 200 computer software programs home and resold them to a discount retailer. The employee used the proceeds from this sale to refurnish her apartment. The prosecution presented the employee’s employment contract as evidence. The contract contained a standard clause providing, “The employee understands that all supplies and equipment used by employee, including but not limited to, writing instruments, paper, stationery, reference books, computer hardware and software, and duplicating equipment, remains the property of employer, and may not be removed by employee from employer’s premises without express written permission.” On direct examination, the employee testified, “During my contractual negotiations, I complained about the low salary I had been offered. The vice president said, ‘You can make lots of extra money by taking the obsolete software programs we no longer use. They aren’t worth enough for the company to bother with, but you can substantially increase your income.’ “
A timely objection to the employee’s testimony should be:CorrectIncorrect
