Coleman works for Software Inc., a Delaware based corporation that sells security equipment to businesses and bars. Coleman’s duties include traveling to prospective clients and meeting with representatives of the businesses in his sales division. Coleman is on the road more than half the year. He often does not come home for more than a few days at a time. Over the course of his 17 years of employment with Software Inc., Coleman has had several stretches on the road that last three months or more. During a sales trip to Smalltown, Colorado in March 2008, Coleman found it necessary to wash his laundry. He also wanted to buy an anniversary present for his wife. Coleman went to the mall to buy the present. While at the mall, Coleman saw a ring that he really liked but could not afford. He decided to steal it. He then went to Jimmy’s Poor-Man’s Bar to meet with a client, John. Jimmy’s wasn’t a client of Coleman’s, but John didn’t like his customers to see him “doing business.” Coleman was talking with Jimmy about business when he spilled his drink all over the bar. That made him think about this cool trick where you put pure grain alcohol in your mouth, blow it out and light it. Coleman took a big drink, took out his lighter, and said, “What this!” He lit his lighter, blew the liquid and a fireball went through the room. The fireball hit Jimmy and killed him instantly. The bar also sustained a lot of damage. Software Inc. fired Coleman without even interviewing him to get his version of the events. Software Inc.’s handbook required all employees to be interviewed before termination. A week later, Coleman called John to make amends. When they met, Coleman said, "The company and I are so sorry about what happened. Let me take you out to dinner – Software Inc. will pay the bill." They went to a restaurant, and instantly got into an argument because John told Coleman he was fat. Coleman punched John in the eye, causing severe eye damage. Jimmy’s mother (his only heir), John, and Jimmy’s Poor-Man’s Bar (which was owned by five men, including Jimmy), sued Software Inc. for the damage caused by Coleman. Coleman sues Software Inc. for wrongful termination. Lastly, the jewelry store sued Software Inc. for the value of the ring.

Factual summary

In this case we have the first scenario about theft, where a trusted and dedicated
salesman, Coleman, travels for business and decides to celebrate his anniversary. He sees a good
ring and thinks it could be a nice gift for his wife but unfortunately he has no money to purchase
the same. He’s driven by malice and the desire to make his wife happy and ends up stealing the
expensive ring from the store. The second scenario is negligence and carelessness, where
Coleman decides to meet up with his friend John at Jimmy’s Poor-Man’s bar, and in the process
of their discussions over some few bottles, Coleman mistakenly spills the drinks and decides to
play one of his “cool” tricks. Coleman puts a big pure grain alcohol in his mouth, blows it out
and lights it up, then disaster strikes when he lights his lighter.
Jimmy, the bar owner, is hit by the fire ball and dies instantly and the bar sustains a lot of
damage from the fire. This instance is reported by the bar to Coleman’s employer, Software Inc,
who then fires Coleman just im...
