Business Law, Briefing a Case.

Briefing a Case
A brief of a case is an analysis of the case. Once a case has been

properly cited, the following “essentials” of a case must be analyzed:

Facts
Issue
Decision
Reason
IRAC Method

To analyze a case successfully, one must identify the issue as well as the rule of law that applies to that issue. In Appendix A under “Legal Analysis and Reasoning,” the book identifies the IRAC method of case analysis. IRAC stands for Issue, Rule (of law), Application, and Conclusion. Here are the basic steps of an IRAC analysis:

Identify the issue.
Determine the rule of law.
Apply the rule of law.
Draw a conclusion.
Here are a couple of videos explaining the IRAC Method:

The case:

Plaintiff Jane moved from Big City to the southern suburbs. She purchased a house on five acres of land. She realized that she had to get used to country living. She missed all of Big City’s everyday conveniences. However, she vowed never to leave her new home and enjoyed the tremendous peace and quiet of the burbs. She was especially looking forward to using her well-water system of what she thought was the biggest plus, fresh groundwater. Before she moved in, she installed a top of the line filtration system. Little did she know that Big City’s now filled to capacity landfill was located about a mile from her new house. One day while preparing to make a pitcher of fresh lemonade, she noticed something floating in the water. Thinking it was something that fell in the pitcher; she poured out the water and refilled it with fresh water. Carefully examining the pitcher, she noticed that there was a lot more floating the pitcher. Thinking it maybe was a result of her new filtration system, she called the company to test the system. The company indicated that it checked the system and it was working properly. The company indicated that she was not the only one to have this complaint in the last month or so. The water filter company indicated that they believed contaminates are leaching from the landfill into the freshwater aquifer.With the water filter company’s report in hand, Jane drives into Big City to discuss the situation with her lawyer. She contends she should be able to sue under the Federal environmental laws regarding groundwater contamination. What is the initial requirement she must determine?
