Please conduct reliable online research and apply key terms and concepts from lecture and course readings to provide a well-crafted analysis in response to the following assignment:
1)Identify and explain specific incidents of wrongdoing reflected in the Stipulated Final Judgment from THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA v. WELLS FARGO BANK, N. A. (Case No. BC580778) in the Superior Court of Los Angeles County and from other reliable sources. To what have the parties to this legal action agreed? How does this agreement impact financial institutions and their customers in the United States? Why is this Consumer Action by the Los Angeles City Attorney of historical significance?
2) Choose two real-life examples of wrongdoing illustrated by one or more of the following theatrical and documentary films: Erin Brockovich (directed by Steven Soderbergh, 2000), Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room (directed by Alex Gibney, 2005), The Wolf of Wall Street (directed by Martin Scorsese, 2013), Money For Nothing: Inside the Federal Reserve (directed by Jim Bruce, 2013), We’re Not Broke (directed by Karin Hayes and Victoria Bruce, 2014), and/or The Big Short (directed by Adam McKay, 2016). Supported by reliable and verifiable sources other than the films you choose, identify and explain specific wrongful behavior for each and how the activity is injurious. Who are the perpetrators? What did they do wrong? Who are the victims? Was justice achieved in these matters?
3) Based upon your research, compare and contrast the actions of Wells Fargo Bank with the two examples of wrongful behavior illustrated by the films you choose. What facts are in common and which facts are distinct? How might the activity violate criminal law? In your opinion, what should be the appropriate penalty for such wrongful behavior? Should individuals be held criminally responsible for actions committed on behalf of the corporate entities that employ them?
4) Provide concise introductory and concluding paragraphs, bolded headings to distinguish your thoughts, and reference no less than ten reliable sources from which to use verifiable facts to support your assertions.
