EXTRA CREDIT QUESTION (5pts): In 2014, Lowe’s was ordered to pay a $1.6 million settlement over a lawsuit alleging the inaccurate description of structural dimensional lumber. It was listing lumber boards that were 1.5 inches by 3.5 inches as 2×4 boards. See http://www.hbsdealer.com/article/lowes-ordered-pay-2×4-settlement Yet, Judge Chang (https://ballotpedia.org/Edmond_E._Chang ruled about two weeks ago that longstanding industry convention recognized by the U.S. Department of Commerce distinguishes between the “nominal” designations for pieces of lumber and their actual size, and dismissed a lawsuit seeking the same ruling. See https://www.popularwoodworking.com/woodworking-blogs/2×4-lumber-lawsuit-dismissedWho is right? Take a position and argue your decision. Back it up with principles we’ve learned in class and convince Judge Ellison (sitting on appeal from Judge Chang) that you are right. Millions of dollars hang in the balance. Each question 150 word.
