How does one get internal redress on an urgent matter involving senior officials of UG?

Dear Editor, The law of vicarious liability allows for the imposition of legal responsibility on some person or organization for the illegal or tortious conduct of someone  (1) who stands in a special legal relationship with that person or organization, such as an employee; and (2) where that employee commits the illegal or tortious act under special legal circumstances, such as during the course of his employment and not while he is “on a frolic of his own.”  In legal parlance, we may call the employee the primary defendant (or D1) and the employer the secondary defendant (or D2).
