What do Abu Ghraib and the phony consumer accounts scandal at Wells Fargo have in common? During the investigations of both events, the defense of “just following orders” was used by those accused of wrongdoing.
In this written assignment, you will be tasked with answering the question, “Is just following orders an acceptable defense?” Submit a brief, but well-written and researched report that examines the concept of just following orders. Where does criminal responsibility lie? How high up the chain of command should responsibility go? All the way to the CEO/President?
