Case Study: Shell V. R.W. Sturge

Can you give me some help on these two questions?

Part A

I need help writing this case brief. Original only please. Read the Shell v. R.W. Sturge Ltd. case and do the following:

1. Prepare a case brief. Refer to the "How to Brief a Case" Web page when preparing your case brief. If you can help me with about 600-700 words original only please I can finish it.

Part B

For several decades, MBI, a multi-national corporation, has manufactured military tanks at several of its branches around the world. One of those branches in Country C sells its tanks both to the army of Country C and the army of Country D. MBI does not have a branch in Country D. After delivering several hundred tanks to Country D, that country has refused to pay for them, complaining that they were defective. (It has nonetheless deployed them as its frontline battle tanks.) MBI sued Country D in the courts of Country D. The courts of Country D dismissed a breach of contract action brought by the MBI several months ago. The rationale for the Court's decision is that that the army is immune from suit in its courts.

I need about 600 words original only in this section and I can finish it. Thanks

1. Can MBI bring suit in a Country C court?
2. Is legally and ethically prudent for MBI to do so?
