Question

Discuss the proper accounting treatment, including any required disclosures, for each situation. Give the rationale for your answers.;Situation 1)In August, 2007 a worker was injured in the factory in an accident partially the result of his own negligence. The worker has sued Rooney Co. for $800,000. Counsel believes it is reasonably possible that the outcome of the suit will be unfavorable and that the settlement would cost the company from $250,000 to $500,000.;Situation 2) A suit for breach of contract seeking damages of $2,400,000 was filed by an author against Early Co. on October 4, 2007. Early's legal counsel believes that an unfavorable outcome is probable. A reasonable estimate of the award to the plaintiff is between $600,000 and $1,800,000. No amount within this range is a better estimate of potential damages than any other amount.;Situation 3) Peete is involved in a pending court case. Peete's lawyer's believe it is probable that Peete will be awarded damages of $1,000,000.
