Many constitutions all over the world provide basis for innocence until proven guilty. As such, the courts of law must always factor in the provisions of criminal procedure and natural justice when cross-examining offenders. In light of this, the exclusionary rule allows a defendant to argue his case if his privacy rights were violated before arraigned in court. In essence, the provisions of the exclusionary rule prevent the government authorities and machinery such as FBI and CIA from gathering evidence from an individual in a manner that disrespects the United States constitution. Therefore, the exclusionary law protects an individual against unreasonable search or seizure in line with the provisions of the Fourth

When considering the facts of the Margolin’s lawsuit with the rules of jurisdiction, first one must understand when personal jurisdiction and subject matter jurisdiction would be applicable. As stated in the textbook, “Personal Jurisdiction is a court 's power to render a decision affecting the rights of the specific persons before the court. Generally, a court 's power to exercise in personam jurisdiction extends only over a specific geographic region.” (Kubasek, pg.42, 2009). Before a court can decide to implement control over a person, they require a minimum contact within the district in which the court is over. In this case, the minimum contact was established over the internet when Margolin inputted information over the internet that completed the business transaction. Since the contact is through the internet, and not within boundaries of the state of California or Florida, the court can exercise personal jurisdiction Margolin’s lawsuit over Funny Face and Novelty Now (Kubasek, 2009).
The Torah, the Tanak, the Hebrew Bible, and the Pentateuch. No matter how you say it they all mean the same thing. The Torah is the foundation of Judaism: the most sacred documents. The word Torah can mean numerous things. It often simply refers to the T in Tanak. It is most commonly translated to mean “ the law”. There are five books that make up the Torah. These books are referred to as the Five Books of Moses: Exodus, Genesis, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. The books of the Torah tell the Israelites a story. A story that begins where we begin, and ends before the introduction of the Savoir. It is often questioned, who the author(s) of the Torah is (are). For this question there are generally two main hypotheses: Mosaic Authorship and the Documentary Hypothesis.
In my opinion, I think Corey was feeling hot cognition, hot cognition is a hypothesis on motivated reasoning in which a person thinking is influenced by their emotional state.
Breaking the law is never justified because the law is there to maintain order and prevent chaos. In Scene 3, Haimon promclaimed, "Then she must die. -- But her death will cause another... If you were not my father, I'd say you were perverse."(Scene 3, line 119 & 125). This illustrates how Haimon is siding with Antigone, henceforth showing fragmentation between those in the kingdom. Since Haimon is siding with Antigone it causes more conflict and friction that disrupts the kingdom. If Antigone didn’t bury Polyneices like the law prohibited it wouldn’t have eventually led to Haimon rebelling against his father and creating chaos within the kingdom. Furthermore, Antigone's post conventional level of moral reasoning clashes with Creon's level
Rule of law in simplest terms means law rules, that is, law is supreme. The term “Rule of law‟ is derived from the French phrase “la principle de legalite” (the principle of legality) which means a government on principle of law and not of men. Rule of Law is a viable and dynamic concept and, like many other concepts, is not capable of any exact definition. It is used in contradistinction to rule of man. Sir Edward Coke, the Chief Justice in King James I‟s reign is said to be the originator of this principle. However, concrete shape was given to it by Professor A.V. Dicey, for the first time in his book “Law of the Constitution” (1885) in the form of three principles.
When reviewing the American Bankruptcy Institutes website I was researching the total number of bankruptcies in 2012, the total number of non-bankruptcies in 2012, and the total number of business bankruptcies in 2012. My findings concluded that the total number of bankruptcies in 2012 which consists of business and non-business fillings which includes the states and D.C. was 1,232,294 (ABI, 2013). The total number of non-business filings in the states and D.C. in 2012 was 1,232,294. The report shows that there were 811,789 non-business Chapter 7 filings and 352,553 non business Chapter 13 filings in 2012 (ABI, 2013).
Case one is based on Nesbitt, who graduated from Brainiac University Law School. “He applied for a job at Dewey, Getem and Howe”, and was granted an interview. Dillan Dewey, who was part of the interviewing process, was so impressed with Nesbitt’s overall interview that at the end they shook hands and he stated “We are very impressed with you young man! How would you like a position with our firm?” To which he replies “I’d be honored!”.
Rights in the workplace is an important subject and each party should know his and her role and responsibilities in the workplace as well as his or her rights that align to that role. Employees have a right to privacy, fair compensation, freedom from discrimination and many others (Holley, Jennings, & Wolters). Employers have to ensure their company’s policies to do not infringe upon their employee’s rights with the workplace. Within organizations that have union representation, employee’s rights are usually monitored and enforced by the union representative. Employers also have rights to know certain information about their applicants to their employees, that does allow for discrimination against a protected class. It is important that
The jury system was introduced in Queensland in 1867 as part of the Queensland Constitution Act. Juries are used in indictable offences in criminal trials. They are mainly used in the District and Supreme Court if the accused pleads guilty. Juries are used to decide the guilt or innocence, of the accused person, based on the facts and evidence provided in court by the Prosecution and Defence Council.
I remember being restricted from my rights because of an unjust law, or should i refer to it as “your” unjust law. You said, “I am the mother and you are the child, therefore i speak and you listen”. I sat. I listened. And i’ve been sitting and i’ve been listening. As time goes on and we’re aging differently, you still have not given me your two ears. You’ve made me feel smaller than what i already am. Like my wings have no chance to spread. Like all of my ideas are meaningfulness. Why can’t you have eyes like The Writer, who saw that as, “Young as she is, the stuff/ Of her life is a great cargo, and some of it heavy:/I wish her a lucky passage”. Luck wasn’t needed to unlock the cage and true freedom will not be defined in so many ways. True freedom constitutes the ability to
