You can feel your blood pressure begin to rise one/beads of sweat break out on your forehead. This job applicant was charming and produced good results in units he directed, but he had to be fired after numerous allegations of sexual harassment. You reviewed the case and were convinced that the firing was fully justified. He [promptly hired a lawyer and sued the town. To save embarrassment for their families, the victims of the alleged harassment did not want the case to go to trial. Without their testimony, the city’s position was untenable. So, reluctantly, the city settled the case out of court for several thousand dollars, a carefully worded letter of reference, and an agreement not to talk about the agreement. Your colleague, who attended graduate school with you, is not asking you some detailed questions. Many of these questions cannot be answered with the letter of reference. Do you answer the questions or not. (Source: adapted from J. Svara, The Ethics Primer, 2015, p. 36).
