Abstract (1 page, 112 kB)   |   Full Case (23 pages, 2.5 MB)

This three-part business case is designed for use in courses addressing

  • Business Ethics
  • Brand Integrity
  • Governmental Regulations
  • Organizational Behavior
  • Business Law
  • Crisis Management
  • New Product Development
  • Succession Management

The narrative of the case provides material for discussing ethically responsible corporate policy and practice. This is particularly important at a time when MBA programs are seeking ways to incorporate ethics in their teachings and students are actively requesting the exploration of ethics in the classroom.

The case is available free of charge. It is in the public domain and may be reproduced without permission, thanks to the generosity of the James S. Kemper Foundation, which provided an Ethics in Business Grant to the Graduate School of Business at the University of Chicago.

A teaching note accompanies the case and is available for faculty use only. It can be requested via email from Professor Linda Ginzel. Please email information on faculty status and phone number or online link for verification purposes.
