With the terms of his bankruptcy at an end, his remaining creditors are simply out of luck as Walker gets ready to start his life fresh. Well, fresh with a much different lifestyle. Since the casinos had to write off nearly half a million dollars, it is likely that Walker won 't be invited back to the big money rooms anytime soon, and if he gets into legal trouble he may be looking for a public defender instead of an Italian-suited attorney, since he stiffed his legal team for over $350,000. If you think your credit card companies and banks are worried about your debt, Walker is part of the reason why. Wells Fargo just wrote off nearly $1 million of Walker 's loans.

The committee accused Aislabie of “speculating heavily in South Sea Stock before the passing of the South Sea Act, and of receiving £20,000 South Sea stock from the Company without paying for it.” While he denied receiving the free stock, he refused to deny the first charge and attempted to cover up his guilt by colluding with his broker, Hawes. He demanded that his broker refuse to release the ledger which recorded Aislabie’s dealings with the South Sea Company stock. The House of Commons ordered that Aislabie bring the book to the trial, but once at the trial, Aislabie announced that the book had been burned.

Wal-Mart also faced charges of monopoly, by making suppliers dependent on them and forcing them to indulge in self-defeating practices, such as pressuring them to sell goods below cost or at prices lower than they would get elsewhere. Wal-Mart regularly faces lawsuits from employees accusing the company of forcing them to work overtime without pay and denying them health insurance. The allegations against Wal-Mart are so numerous that it is a common example for bad ethics.

However, he wound up returning to Apple a few years later. Upon seeing the evolution of the company since his exit, he only became more frustrated.

Wozniak never took his name off the employee list, so he is still technically an employee and receives a stipend from Apple of about $120,000 per year. He joked in an interview with CNBC that “...since he reported to the late Steve Jobs, he can’t be fired.” (Shinal).

When accidents occurred, Toyota blamed former management, supplier, and customers instead of addressing the issue.

Toyota President Toyoda did not try to make amend, even though it was evident by the second recall in 2010 that the pedals stuck regardless of the presence of floor mat (Hartley, & Claycomb, 2013, p. 315). In fact, it took fifty-two deaths to finally make Mr. Toyoda issue a public

In 1775, the Continental Congress had a problem: it had controlled the sixteen-thousand-man army outside of Boston, but had no money to pay them and no power to raise taxes this lead to “I.O.U.’s” meaning they will pay the men later, but this put them in deeper finical distress. In a three year period beef went for $0.04 a pound to $1.69 a pound and paper money lost all value.

Although, Delaware tried it thirteen years earlier in 1976. The NFL immediately responded with a temporary restraining order against the state of Delaware for “irreparable harm.” However, their claim was quickly denied by the courts, but the lawsuit became a moot point as Delaware’s sports lottery failed abruptly due to incompetence. This was a poorly managed government-run operation and the state shut down the sports lottery after only three weeks because it was $371,000 in debt.
