June 2014 LSAT Section 3 Question 18
HAMEE on June 1, 2019I believe the key to this question revolves around the question of whether there was intent. Sanderson did not intentionally tell his cousin about overhearing someone say that the factory would close. He knew that this would mislead the cousin. However, this is still lacking to back the conclusion that "there is no moral difference between stating and failing to state if they are done with the same intention." Since we don't know whether Sanderson did really believe that the factory would be closing, we do not know whether Sanderson really tried to misled the cousin by not telling. The act of not telling was intentional, but also we would need to know whether Sanderson believed that the factory would be in fact be closing. Otherwise, he could have not told the cousin because he wasn't sure.
