(TCO C) On a busy evening at a local pharmacy and drug store, John Loyal was working as the night manager. It was Loyal's job to count the cash accumulated during the previous manager's shift and place it in the store safe. At the time, there was one other employee working, a 17 year old mentally impaired student working named Tom Smith. During the shift, Loyal became sick and called the day manager, asking him to come in. The day manager refused, so Loyal left Tom in charge of the drug store and failed to put the money in the safe. Right before closing time, three armed robbers entered the store, chased Tom through the store, and demanded money. Tom gave them the money and was shot to death. Tom's mother sued the store. 1. On what legal bases may Tom's mother sue the store? Identify the elements of such claims; 2. What, if any, legal defenses does the store have? 3. Is the store potentially vicariously or directly liable for Tom's death?
