Alaska Gold

“I don't see how twenty tons of gold, and a plane crash site, hasn't been found in over sixty years, except by one man?” “Maybe a short lesson in plane crash ballistics combined with Alaska weather patterns and geography will help.

Tom Wolfe, a recently retired, highly decorated Army Ranger, learns of the treasure at his granduncle’s birthday party. His uncle assures him the gold is just waiting to be taken, but warns taking it can be deadly. Wolfe collects an odd assortment of men and women to find the treasure. The problem is the treasure hunters are constantly at odds with each other and also antagonize everyone else, including a ruthless gang of thugs who decide to steal the lost gold from the treasure hunters. They follow Wolfe, and his team, deep into the Alaskan backcountry; spelunking through volcanic lava tubes, battling an enormous, killer bear and dodging federal agents also trying to recover the gold. Just as Wolfe finds the gold a secretive, malicious billionaire sends in a team of professional killers to steal the treasure for himself. What began as a fun, summer adventure becomes a frantic battle for their lives.

It is the land of the Alaska Gold Rush, where nuggets were said to be the size of goose eggs, where men froze to death in search of the elusive yellow metal, and dancehall girls lured overnight millionaire sourdoughs into marriage. Honky-tonk pianos punctuated the howl of the north wind in towns that were half-tent and half-ramshackle collections of driftwood, whalebone, and packing cases. It was a time of whiskey and gold and long, lonely trails behind a dogsled. It was, in a word, ALASKA. In cities, rugged men and women walked on planks set across streets so deep with spring mud horses could be swallowed. On the tundra, life was a living hell with mosquitoes, gnats, white socks, and biting flies descending in clouds on warm-blooded creatures. On the flip side of the season, temperature could drop to 50 or 60 degrees below zero, cold enough to freeze a can of oil so solid it could be cut in half with a saw. With wind blasting at 100 miles an hour, the chill factor could go down to 100 degrees below zero, cold enough to freeze a person to death in a matter of minutes if he could not find proper shelter. In whiteout conditions, visibility could diminish to a foot in a matter of minutes. It was, in a word, ALASKA.

There is a great wealth of diversity in the business tort laws of all fifty states and the District of Columbia. The new 2019 Edition of Business Torts: A Fifty-State Guide helps you quickly assess the merits and pitfalls of litigation in any given jurisdiction allowing you to make the best decisions for your clients. In addition to the very significant differences in the statutes of limitation, other significant differences include: Some states have not recognized a cause of action for negligent interference with an economic advantage. Negligent misrepresentation in one state is limited to claims against persons in the business of supplying information to others. One state recognizes a cause of action for "strict responsibility misrepresentation." Another state recognizes claims of "prima facie tort" for wrongs that do not fit into traditional tort categories. And these are only a few examples of the more significant differences. Note: Online subscriptions are for three-month periods. Previous Edtion: Business Torts: A Fifty State Guide, 2018 Edition, ISBN 9781454884323¿

Business Torts: A Fifty State Guide, 2022 Edition provides the most recent statutory and case law developments on business torts laws for each of the fifty states and the District of Columbia. Practitioner-oriented, and written by leading state experts, each chapter summarizes the variants and developments particular to a specific state jurisdiction. You will find detailed coverage of each state's standards regarding: misappropriation of trade secrets; tortious interference with contracts; fraud and misrepresentation; trade libel and commercial disparagement; breach of fiduciary duty; officers and directors liability; conversion; unfair competition, fraudulent transfer; economic loss; and statutes of limitation. The 2022 Edition incorporates recent changes in the law of the various states, including: The South Carolina Supreme Court held that plaintiffs are no longer required to plead special damages for civil conspiracy claims. The Maine Legislature passed a new law restricting an Employer's use of non-compete agreements and subjecting violations of this new law to a $5,000 fine. The Iowa Supreme Court refused to recognize that a pastor owes a fiduciary duty to a plaintiff, as the Court would have to refer to church doctrines and practices in making that assessment, which the Court held was beyond their authority. The 6th Circuit Court of Appeals held that the Uniform Voidable Transactions Act, as adopted in part by Michigan, allows a creditor to void a fraudulent disposal of property belonging to a person who is liable on a claim. State Laws Included: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Wyoming.
