The Appellate Brief project that you will be working on is based upon the fact pattern in the Lesson 05 discussion question. This problem centers around the law of agency which we do not study as a class until Lesson 14, the week your final paper will be due. For this project, you will draft an appellate brief to the State of Florida appellate court. In this brief, you will present the issue(s) to be resolved in this fact pattern. You will conduct legal research utilizing the tools provided in the Lesson 05 video (How To Do Free Internet Legal Research). You will read and apply the law that you find into a discussion/argument answering the issues raised in the fact pattern. While you are welcome to proceed at your own pace, certain benchmarks have been provided throughout the course of the semester to keep you on track to providing a fully written and edit final paper in a timely fashion. As such, your first step after re-reading the fact pattern is to review your fellow students Lesson 05 discussion posts to formulate the issue(s) to discuss in your paper.

Case Study: Investigation of Americas flawed pandemic response Read The New York Times’ investigation of the U.S. response to the coronavirus threat: Link to article: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/06/03/us/cdc-coronavirus.html?action=click&module=RelatedLinks&pgtype=Article Respond to the following: 1.
