Background Facts You Need To Know: TLG has a new client, Clean-n-Shine (Clean), a
commercial cleaning company incorporated and located in Maryland, but doing business in all Mid Atlantic states. Clean uses its own line of cleaning products and also sells its products to other
businesses via the internet.
Recently, the Delaware legislature enacted a law banning all sales and importation, until further
notice, of Clean’s Shine It floor cleaner in Delaware. It was discovered that one of the ingredients in
Shine It, derived from corn, is contaminated and causes a quick-growing mold to spread on surface
to which it is applied. The mold can be toxic to humans and can cause damage to floors.
Clean wants to expand its products to sale ShineIt in Delaware. If Clean can sale share Shine it in
Delaware, it will increase its income and profits. Clean, therefore, wants to challenge the new law
as unconstitutional, and it has consulted TLG for advice.
Winnie and Ralph ask you to prepare a summary report of relevant constitutional law for a meeting
with them and Clean’s owners.
Report You Need to Prepare: Prepare a report that addresses the following three questions:
1. Analyze and explain whether the Delaware restriction on the sale of Shine It violates the
Interstate Commerce Clause.
Fully explain your conclusions based on constitutional law.
2. Analyze whether the doctrine of “police powers” derived from the 10th Amendment of the
U.S. Constitution, applies to the Delaware law, and if so, why.
Fully explain your conclusions based on constitutional law
3. Discuss why it is important for businesses to understand the impact of the Interstate
Commerce Clause and state police powers.

Constitutional Power of Governments:
Review the U.S. Constitution, with particular attention on the Articles and the Bill of
Rights/First Ten Amendments.
The U.S. Constitution
Police Powers:
The U.S. Constitution grants authority and powers to the federal
government. Powers not specifically designated for the federal government are
reserved as powers for the individual states. So-called “police powers” are reserved
for the states.
Police Powers of States
Examples of Police Powers of States
Jurisdiction of Courts:
Jurisdiction, the authority of a court to hear a case, is an important legal concept for
business owners and managers to understand. Jurisdiction is increasingly complex
with the expansion of e-commerce and global business.
Jurisdiction: Definitions and Examples
Jurisdiction and Internet Sales
Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR):
Traditionally, legal disputes were resolved in the courts, but legal alternatives for
resolving disputes outside the courtroom are increasingly popular. ADR is
appropriate for certain types of cases, e.g., disputes where there is a dispute of facts;
ADR is not appropriate for all disputes, e.g., a dispute involving a question of
constitutional law.
