Murray, along with his co-author/co-presenter Erica L. Calderas, surveyed the laws of the 50 states on the prerequisites for establishing claims based on the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing, examined recent case law developments and assessed whether or under what circumstances such claims may be “dead” or viable.  In addition, Murray and Calderas discussed the increased reliance by franchisors on the business judgment rule and how doing so affects the application of the implied covenant.
