Your firm represents John McGee, a franchisee of McDonald’s. Suzie, a customer of John’s, claims to have gotten food poisoning after eating Chicken McNuggets and is threatening to sue John. Your managing partner has requested that you perform legal research and determine what rights and liabilities John has in this situation and what needs to be done under the laws of Wisconsin and the franchise agreement to have the franchisor held fully, jointly, or partially liable for Suzie’s injuries.
Your memo should be 3-4 pages in length. Incorporate at primary legal sources (statutes, court opinions) to support your work. Format citations and references per Harvard Blue Book rules.
