On the date of February 4th, 1965, believing that the Petitioner had been using public pay phones to transmit illegal gambling wagers from Los Angeles to Miami and Boston, the Federal Bureau of Investigation began their surveillance into the life of the Petitioner, Charles Katz. Fifteen days later on February 19th, 1965 FBI agents working the case against the Petitioner had gained access to a phone booth within a set of phone booths that the petitioner frequented on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles, and summarily recorded the petitioner’s side of conversations he was having on the phone within a booth nearby. This surveillance lasted until the 25th (excluding February 22, as no evidence was obtained due to technical difficulties) the date of the petitioner’s arrest, which took place immediately after he exited the same set of phone booths (Brief for Respondent 3). In this case there are two major constitutional questions which need to be addressed: (1) whether evidence obtained by attaching an electronic listening and recording device to the top of a public telephone booth used and occupied by the Petitioner is gathered in violation of the Fourth Amendment, and (2) whether the search warrant used by the FBI officers in this case violated the Fourth Amendment to the constitution in that the warrant was (a) not founded on probable cause; (b) an evidentiary search warrant and (c) a general search warrant. While the Petitioner would like the answer to be yes in both cases,
In 1790 George Washington had hired Pierre L’Enfant to plan the city and design the presidential home. The plan by L’Enfant’s plan was four times larger than the structure that is standing today. By 1792 L`Enfant had been dismissed due to his exceedingly dominant handling of the city plans. In the absence of the original architect a competition began to select the new architect of the presidential house. James Hoban and Irish American was chosen after winning over George Washington with his personality and designs.

During the War of 1812 as British burned the emblem of United States, then- President James Madison and his family were forced to leave Washington D.C. After waiting for the violence to subside the Madison’s eventually moved into the nearby Octagon House. In efforts toward reconstruction James Hoban was brought in design the White House and direct the building efforts. However the house was not able to become a home until 1817 when President James Monroe moved in. After the war of 1812 the White house became a symbol of the only war fought on U.S. soil. Many suggested that the capital be moved inland and yet Andrew Jacksons victory at the battle of New Orleans swayed any doubt that Washington D.C. was eternal home of the Nations
The Patent Office and the Post Office were also spared by the invading British forces. Dr. William Thornton pleaded to the British Officers that the knowledge lost by destroying them would disservice to mankind. The White House was burnt in response to the American forces invading York and burning down of some of the government buildings there. York is now known as Toronto (“Washington, D.C. History” 1).
In addition to solidarity, America must establish good and reliable foreign relations. This would form peace and safety in America and globally. In hopes that there will be no nuclear war and avoid our soldiers and civilians from harm, it is crucial for our President to establish strong relationships with foreign leaders; to listen, communicate and negotiate in ways that will benefit the entire country and avoid any rivalry.
I observed court operations at the Plantation Key Government Center in Tavernier, Florida twice: on October 7th and November 4th. I observed Chief Circuit Judge Carlos Garcia in courtroom A. The courthouse is located in the 16th Judicial Circuit of Florida and it’s a state trial court with general jurisdiction. The first visit was cut short, in part because it was a lighter criminal day than planned, but also I was flabbergasted by the lack of professionalism that was present in this courtroom. I’m not sure if it’s a “court in Paradise” problem, or something that is observed at other courtrooms, however, I’m disappointed in what I saw. Lack of professionalism was evident during both visits from the actors and their actions in the courtroom.
A very significant case in Cook County Courts was the Bridgeport case, known as a “heater” case because of the publicity that surround it, and the racial overtones (Bogira 181). The Bridgeport case involved three white teenagers, Michael Kwidzinski, Jasas, and Caruso that were accused of brutally beating two young black boys who were riding their bikes in the predominantly white neighborhood. The entire summary of the case, in Courtroom 302, was based around the fact that one of the boys, Michael Kwidzinski, was most likely innocent. The question then turns to the boy himself, Michael Kwidzinski; if he was innocent, why did hid then accept a guilty plea bargain?
My understanding of the court system has changed almost weekly from the beginning of my semester. I do understand things that I never thought I would’ve have known or even cared about in the least. The book Courtroom 302 has brought an even different side of thinking into this. The book goes into detail about the criminal court in Chicago. He watches all of the actions and different trials that come and go in the courtroom 302. He presents many different cases throughout the book which gives more insight then just a single case.
The book Courtroom 302, written by Steve Bogira in 2005, is about the criminal courts in Chicago, IL. Steve Bogira graduated from Northwestern University, and is an excellent reporter for the Chicago Review. Courtroom 302 is story told mainly from through Steve Bogira’s observations. Bogira observes a courtroom (Courtroom 302), and basically the entire justice system process from beginning to end. The courtroom that Bogira observes is in the control of Judge Daniel Locallo. Judge Locallo helps give Bogira an all access view, plus vital personal thoughts and feelings about issues and events that he has dealt with; and Bogira has observed. Judge Locallo is not the only person that expresses personal information. Many employees of the

I and Interpreter sit back near door and I want thank to them note for me, I don 't understand court and lawyer was so fast speak but hard for me write notes then two interpreter willing notes share for me.
