McDonald's has the duty to warn customers of the dangerous conditions, such as the sizzling coffee in this case. Although the coffee cup did say "Caution: Contents Hot" McDonald's admitted in court that customers were unaware that the coffee could cause a third-degree burn and the sign on the cup was not a warning rather than a reminder. Although if the franchise's manual allowed McDonald's to have the coffee to 185 degrees Fahrenheit, McDonald's received 700 injuries claims caused by the hot coffee served. Some of the claims resulted from a third-degree burn, such as the plaintiff's injury. McDonald's failed in warning customers of the extremely hot coffee the Stylophone cup held.

But he’d never answer. He’d just roll his eyes at me, get peeved, tell me to quit trying to mother him.” (Krakauer 45). Exhibits Burres trying to figure out if anyone from McCandless’s family knew anything about him, knowing as a mother his family might be worried about him.

Whether you are trying to protect people from the truth by hiding secrets you are still not being honest which is the same as lying. A vague example in the novel is when Ben first hears about his terminal illness. Instead of telling his family, he decides to skip treatment and not tell his family. Keeping this secret makes the most sense to Ben at this time. “I know this is too much for your mother, but your dad is the most level headed man I know.” “And I want to keep it that way, Doc.”( par.
After Bob Ewell, the prosecutor of Tom Robinson, attacks the children and dies in the attempt, Atticus refuses to cover it up because he, “‘Don’t want him growing up with a whisper about him, I don’t want anybody saying, [...] Sooner we get this over with the better’” (Lee 366). Atticus would not let the local sheriff say that Jem did not kill Bob Ewell because he thought that Jem did at the time, and wants his kids to know that they should be treated like the rest of the community. Before that, when Atticus was defending Tom Robinson, he was telling the jury that the opposition had lied because they were, “‘confident that you gentlemen would go along with them on the assumption—the evil assumption—that all Negroes lie, that all Negroes are basically immoral beings, that all Negro men are not to be trusted around our women’” (Lee 273). Even though Scout and Jem were not supposed to be there, they learn how racism could kill an innocent man, and through that learn why Atticus had constantly reminded them of why equality is so important. With them learning about equality, they also learn about the town’s racism and how it should not be included in their definition of a person, another mini-lesson taught by Atticus to instruct his kids about
He was a thirteen year old boy who had to raise himself at some points since his father was not willing to do so. Huck is not educated due to the fact his father will not allow him to attend school. In the story the audience can also tell Huck doesn’t have much home training. In the book it states, “Pap always said it warn't no harm to borrow things if the reader was meaning to pay them back some time; but the widow said it warn't anything but a soft name for stealing, and no decent body would do it. Jim said he reckoned the widow was partly right and pap was partly right; so the best way would be for us to pick out two or three things from the list and say we wouldn't borrow them any more—then he reckoned it wouldn't be no harm to borrow the others.” This shows that Pap never taught Huck right from wrong so Huck thinks it’s okay to do these things.
Danforth will not accept this deposition, because he feels the deposition is an attack on the court. Some of the citizens signed a petition stating they never saw any signs that the arrested women had dealings with the devil, and Judge Danforth wasn’t happy. “... Mr. Cheever have warrants drawn for all of these arrests for examination” (Miller 1253). With this petition going around is showing that the court may be wrong, and it is showing weakness from the court. Judge Danforth will do anything to protect him and make sure no one questions the court.
