One of the best ways to learn the rules of law is to apply them to hypothetical situations.
That’s why I'm asking you to analyze one case problem with several parts involving

then the last step is to apply the correct legal rules to the facts of the case problem and to
state your conclusions. Here’s the case hypothetical, followed by instructions on how to
prepare your assignment.

and it is the first website that comes up in an Internet search for information about her
candidacy. The website labels her a Communist and includes false statements about her
