Case Summary
Citation: Loucks v. Albuquerque National Bank, 76 N.M. 735, 418 P.2d 191

Facts: The plaintiff-appellants, Richard A. Loucks and Del Martinez (the “plaintiffs”) were business partners in the name of L & M Paint and Body Shop in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Prior to March 1962, Martinez operated a business under the name Del’s Paint and Body Shop. Martinez did his banking with defendant bank Albuquerque National Bank (the “defendant”) and dealt with Mr. Kopp, the vice-president of the bank. In February 1962, Martinez borrowed $500 from the defendant and deposited it into his bank account. On March 15, 1962, the plaintiffs formed a partnership in the name of L & M Paint and Body Shop. They opened a business bank account with the defendant and deposited $620. Two payments were made on the note for the $500 Martinez borrowed from the defendant. The payments were made with checks drawn on the plaintiff’s business bank account. Eventually, Martinez failed to make payments on the note and the defendant sued for recovery. On March 14, 1963, the amount remaining on the note was $402. Mr. Kopp wrote to L & M on behalf of the defendant stating that the business account had been charged the remaining $402 owed by Martinez. The following Monday, both plaintiffs met with Mr. Kopp to explain that the $402 was the personal indebtedness of Martinez rather than a partnership obligation. Mr. Kopp failed to re-credit the business account and with a remaining balance of $3.66, the account was closed. The defendant failed honor nine or ten checks written in the month of March that would have been honored had the defendant not debited the business account $402. A jury awarded the plaintiffs $402, but the plaintiffs appealed claiming the trial court erred in taking from the jury certain questions regarding damages.

Facts The incumbent president Federalist John Adams was defeat in the presidential election by Democratic-Republican Thomas Jefferson. The day before leaving office, President John Adams named forty-two justices of the peace and sixteen new circuit court justices for the District of Columbia. This was an attempt by the Federalists to take control of the federal judiciary before Thomas Jefferson took office. The commissions were signed by President Adams and sealed by acting Secretary of State John Marshall but they were not delivered before the expiration of Adams’s term as president. Thomas Jefferson refused to honor the commissions, claiming that they were invalid because they had not been delivered by the end of Adams’s term. William Marbury (Plaintiff) was an intended recipient of an appointment as justice of the peace. Marbury applied directly to the Supreme Court of the United States for a writ of mandamus to compel Jefferson’s Secretary of State, James Madison (Defendant), to deliver the commissions. The Judiciary Act of 1789 had granted the Supreme Court original jurisdiction to issue writs of mandamus “…to any courts appointed, or persons holding office, under the authority of the United States.” Ironically, John Marshall later became Chief Justice of the Supreme Court......

National Bank

...The National Bank was founded and established by Alexander Hamilton. The National Bank helped fund the public debt that was left from the American Revolution. The bank was capitalized at $10 million, with $8 million coming from private sources and $2 million coming from the government. The bank then had the right to issue notes or currency up to $10 million. The notes would be suitable for payment of taxes, a feature that would provide the Bank with a strong advantage over its competitors. The bank had a great resource on its side. It had the governments help. With the governments help, the National Bank was able to provide a lot of help including a ready source of loans, a principal depository for federal monies that were transferable from city to city without charge, and a clearing agent for payments on the national debt. With the bank being so successful, it allowed entrepreneurs the resources they needed to become successful. They were able to go borrow the money needed for research to make their business become successful. They were also able to go get money for business supplies that were needed.

When going for a loan the bank looks at a couple different things. The first one would be your credit. Looking at your......

...|CSC 555 Week 2 Case Study Exercise |Mohawk National Bank | |September 4, 2012 | | "You're really going to have your work cut out for you, Randy," remarked Pat Coleman, vice president for operations. "It's not going to be easy establishing a project management organizational structure on top of our traditional structure. We're going to have to absorb the lumps and bruises and literally 'force' the system to work." BACKGROUND Between 1988 and 1998, Mohawk National matured into one of Maine's largest full-service banks, employing a full-time staff of some 1,200 employees. Of the 1,200 employees, approximately 700 were located in the main offices in downtown Augusta. Mohawk matured along with other banks in the establishment of computerized information processing and decision-making. Mohawk leased the most up-to-date computer equipment in order to satisfy customer demands. By 1994, almost all departments were utilizing the computer. By 1995, the bureaucracy of the traditional management structure was creating severe administrative problems. Mohawk's management had established many complex projects to be 211, each one requiring the involvement of several departments.

The National Bank

...Case study 2: Second National Bank 1. What do you think of the idea of having an annual off-site retreat for top management to develop the strategic plan for the organization? In my opinion, it is not a good idea because in many situations, top managers are not someone who involved directly to the strategic plan. Their main responsibility is to manage is focused on macro management process; as a result, many of them do not remember primary categories of the strategic plan; for example, in this case study, they did not even bring any copy of the plan to their meetings. Meanwhile, middle level and low level managers tend to deal with different kind of projects which are based on the strategic plan in more details. Consequently, they could figure out if the strategic plan is good enough and how it could be improved. Besides that, one of the most important factors which help recognize if it is the effective strategic plan is the strategy reviews from middle level and low level managers. However, via this case study, we can realize that no one in top management brings any review to the meetings. I think it is a really bad situation, since how the top management could adapt the plan based on the outcomes of those reviews. 2. Critique the planning process for the Second National Bank Firstly, the strategic planning of the Second National Bank should comply with organization’s mission and vision Mission: Provide excellent bank services Vision: “Exxor County’s Friendliest......

Case Study 2.1: Second National Bank

...Case Study 2.1: Second National Bank 1. What do you think of the idea of having an annual off-site retreat for top management to develop the strategic plan for the organization? The management’s idea to hold the strategic meeting off-site excludes some of the members who are part of the bank’s management and other operational sectors. Strategic plans for the future of an organization depend on information and feedback from every section or department of the company, and clearly Second National Bank had only its top management at the meeting. This left a gap for misinformation and lack of sufficient information which can often lead to inaccurate and unrealistic plans. Meetings that involve the heads of departments and their subordinates tend to promote collaborative and team work. Having most of the staffs involved could have been beneficial to provide better insight and optimize the group’s planning potential and capability to build a successful plan. 2. Critique the planning process for the Second National Bank. During their planning process, the management did not appear to have used or tracked any of the tools that were available to them. In the Quality Assurance world, it is very important to leverage the voice of the customer and understand that their opinion is very important when implementing any type of process improvement in the current system. It is very interesting how the management decided to change their slogan, but did not seem to follow a plan......
