1) Paper length should be 4 to 5 pages not including the title page or references. (double space is fine)

a) Discuss the facts of the case and describe the ethical dilemma or violation faced by the accountant or his/her accounting firm. Also address what AICPA ethical rules were violated?
b) What was the outcome of this case?
