Case 1 is an appeal to the conviction rendered by District Court Judge Bradley on
The Council filed for reinstatement on February 22 2005 . Upon rehearing on March 14 2005 , Pain J ordered the Plaintiff to restrain from his previous property usage .
Wrongful convictions are common in the court-system. In fact, wrongful convictions are not the rare events that you see or hear on televisions shows, but are very common. They stem from some sort of systematic defect that lead to wrongful convictions such as, eyewitness misidentification testimony, unvalidated or improper forensic science, false confessions and incriminating statements, DNA lab errors, false confessions, and informants (2014). Bringing awareness to all these systematic defects, which result in wrongful, is important because it will better adjust the system to avoid making the same mistakes with future cases. However, false confession is not a systematic defect. It does not occur because files were misplaced or a lab technician put one too many drops. False confessions occur because of some of psychological attempt to protect oneself and their family. Thus, the courts responsibility should be to reduce these false confessions.

In my opinion, the United States in the case of Bailey was not in the wrong to detain Polo aka Chunon Bailey while searching his apartment. I believe the officers did everything in their power to make sure they had valid evidence before requesting a search warrant for Polo's apartment and good reasoning to detain him at the crime scene. In Michigan v. Summers the court allowed the officers, who were conducting the search, to detain the tenant while the search is being done. Consequently, the court did not state when the detainment should occur, so using the Fourth Amendment as a model for reasonableness, the court of appeals decided that officers could detain a tenant who leaves the vicinity, considering that the detainment happened in a timely
The prosecution’s mistake, which could be completely argued as deciding the outcome of this case, was to file the case in downtown district rather than in
Whenever an appellate court reverses a trial court decision, it instructs that court to rehear the case using the correct law and procedures. If the court sees that a “gross miscarriage of justice” is being done or that an error was obviously committed, they will usually overturn the trial court’s decision (Coffin, 85). In the vast majority of cases, the decision of a Court of Appeal is final. The state Supreme Court does not review the vast majority of cases – it steps in to resolve new or disputed questions of law. It is also the highest state appellate court for civil matters (supreme.courts.state
