Choose one case from this week’s chapter in the text, such as Tarasoff vs. Regents of the University of California (p. 215), or one of its many offspring (including Shaw v. Glickman), or other cases, including Jaffee v. Redmond, State v. Cole, or State v. Andring). Using the Questions and Comments at the end of each case, discuss some of the issues addressed by the appellate or Supreme court in that case. Please do not use more than 2-3 sentences to describe the case; everyone has read it. Rather, offer your opinion about the decision and its implications for practice, or find conflicting case law and compare the two cases.
