Sterling, Inc. is a manufacturer of state-of-the-art  computers. For the past ten years, Sterling has acquired all of its  microchips from NoBugs Corporation, the only producer of chips meeting  Sterling’s high specifications. The relationship has been mutually  profitable. Sterling could not have built its reputation as an industry  leader without NoBugs’s reliable and consistently high-quality products;  Sterling’s business has enabled NoBugs to grow rapidly while providing  its investors with an attractive rate of return.

Some months ago, several of Sterling’s computers exploded  shortly after installation. Upon investigation, Sterling discovered that  tiny imperfections in NoBugs’s microchips had aggravated a dormant  design defect in the computers, causing the explosions. Analysis of the  chips indicated that they were indeed below specifications and that the  imperfections were caused by a slight miscalibration of NoBugs’s  encoding equipment. NoBugs recalibrated the equipment and promptly  resumed production of perfect chips.

Sterling’s losses from the explosions – lost profits,  out-of-pocket costs associated with compensating customers for the  explosions, and injury to business reputation – are estimated to exceed  $20 million. Sterling and NoBugs disagree on the amount of the loss for  which NoBugs should be responsible. Sterling has a strong legal case for  breach of contract against NoBugs. Sterling’s CEO is considering a  lawsuit. She asks you to prepare a report discussing litigation strategy  and the advantages and disadvantages of litigation; and discussing  pretrial planning should the company opt for litigation.
