Ranchises and The Laws that Govern Them

Please answer the following question: Using the Internet, research a recent case about a franchise. The case must be about something specific regarding the entity (formation, duties, major Federal laws which govern the entity, etc); it must not be a case that simply involves a franchise business entity as a party for a different reason. It must be related to either the laws pertaining to its formation or major Federal laws which govern Franchises. Describe the facts of the case briefly and describe the legal issue. Discuss also the effect of the case on the business world and on society generally. Include any reflections you have personally about the facts of the case and/or of the result. Compare to other types of business entities-would the party have been in a better position if they formed as a different type of legal business entity such as a corporation, LLC or sole proprietorships? Incorporate legal terminology where appropriate. Use academic or legitimate news sources, such as The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC, etc. Please include in your post any links used for your research.
