The following March, John  resigned from the firm, and the next month, he bought more than 20,000  shares of its stock. MNC provided some guidance to employees concerning  the rules of insider trading, and with regard to John’s transactions,  the corporation said nothing about the potential liability. Steve Tate,  an MNC shareholder, filed a suit against MNC and John to compel  recovery, under Section 16(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, of  John’s profits from the purchase and sale of his shares. John argued  that he should not be liable because he relied on MNC’s advice. Should  the court order John to return his profits to the Corporation? Explain.

When Home terminated its relationship with Laptop,  Laptop filed a suit in a New York state court. Home asked the court to  dismiss the suit on the basis of the forum-selection clause.
