Business Law Question On Due Process..Please Help!?
11. A Law Is Passed That Bans “The Wearing Of Such Outlandish Clothing That It Causes A Public Distraction.” Most Likely, This Law Would Be Challenged On The Basis Of:
A. Substantive Due Process
B. Procedural Due Process
C. Commerce Clause
D. Equal Protection
I Think The Answer Is Either A Or D..
A, Because Substantive Due Process Says That Law Should Be Clear And Not Overly Broad..
Or D, Because It Says That Everyone Should Be Protected Equally..
Im Confused, Please Help!
Due process says that law should be clear and not overly broad
The 14th Amendment has several clauses which are applied in different ways
Under substantive due process it is:
"No State shall deprive a citizen of LIBERTY without due process of law."
The emphasis is on liberty. When a law interferes with a FUNDAMENTAL RIGHT, the government must demonstrate the purpose of the law and how the law is tailored to achieving that purpose. Some rights are so fundamental that only a COMPELLING STATE INTEREST NARROWLY TAILORED to achieving that interest will survive. This is called STRICT SCRUTINY. Strict scrutiny is STRICT IN THEORY FATAL IN FACT, which means that it will almost never survive. e.g. a law that restricts someone's right to vote.
Procedural due process is
"No STATE shall DEPRIVE a citizen of LIFE, LIBERTY OR PROPERTY without DUE PROCESS OF LAW.
First it must be a state or government action. If the actor is a private company, there is no Procedural due process claim. Next there must be a deprivation, which means that some sort of entitlement must be taken away. If one was not entitled to it to begin with, there is no violation. Next it must be a deprivation of life or limb, liberty, or property or property interest. Finally, insufficient process to challenge the deprivation must have occured. e.g. A welfare board determines that a family no longer qualifies for section 8 housing and evicts them from their home without warning.
The Commerce clause does not deal with the 14th amendment, but Article I of the Constitution. It give congress the power to regulate commerce between the many states. In this case it is the Federal government, and the action must affect commerce between the states or have an AGGREGATE EFFECT on commerce. e.g. cultivation of marijuanna for medical use affects illicit marijuanna use throughout the country. Additionally, a state cannot pass laws which SUBSTANTIALLY INTERFERE WITH INTERSTATE COMMERCE. This is known as the dormant commerce clause.
Equal Protection is
"No State shall deprive a citizen...of EQUAL PROTECTION OF THE LAWS." In this case, there is a classification of two distinct groups which are SIMILARLY SITUATED. One is disadvantaged. Again, a state or the federal government must demonstrate the purpose of the law and how that law is tailored to achieving that end. First, you must ask, does the law make a classification? If so, is that classification based on gender, race, ethnicity, national origin, status as an illegitimate child, or alien? When the classification is based on one of the above except gender, the government must show that the classification was based on a COMPELLING STATE INTEREST NARROWLY TAILORED TO ACHIEVING THAT INTEREST. Once again this is strict in theory and fatal in fact. Classifications based on race, for instance will almost always fail. e.g. segregating inmates in a prison according to race because of racial gangs. When the classification is based on gender the law must be based on AN IMPORTANT GOVERMENT INTEREST CLOSELY TAILORED TO ACHIEVING THAT INTEREST. This is intermediate scrutiny. Otherwise, the law must be RATIONALLY RELATED TO ACHIEVING A LEGITIMATE GOVERNMENT INTEREST, which is not very hard to demonstrate, but such laws can be struck down if they are based on animus towards a group. e.g. laws that prohibit the mentally handicapped from living in a residential housing zone for no good reason would not face muster.
To answer your question:
In approaching your question, you must look to see Is there a classification? That might be people who wear outlandish clothing vs. other people. The classification is not based on gender, race or ethnicity, so not much of a challenge under equal protection. Does the law involve a fundamental right? To dress as you wish is a freedom of expression, so this could involve the 1st Amendment. It could be substantive due process, but the speech does not appear to be protected. If the clothing's purpose was political, religious, or aritistic, it may be better. Does the action affect interstate commerce? It could affect retailers of outlandishing clothing because no one would like to buy the clothing if it is illegal. Because this deals with commerce more directly, it is probably not a good challenge. Is this a State action that deprives a person of property without due process? It is a law, so it is state action, and it deprives a person of their ability to use their property. The vagueness of what "outlandish" clothing means could implicate due process. Part of due process is that you know how the laws will affect you a head of time. When the law is overly broad, it has a CHILLING EFFECT on legal behavior, because no one wants to get arrested.
If you think that a freedom of expression is implicated here, then it is (a). If you think that people are being deprived of their property rights to wear outlandish clothing, then it is (b). For this reason, (a) is a stronger answer I believe. Good attorneys would sue under a, b, and d.
Do We Have Grounds For A Personal Injury Case & How To Find A Good Lawyer?
My Husband Went To The Emergency Room With A Piece Of Metal In His Eye From Welding And While The Male Nurse Was Prodding In My Husband'S Eye He Stopped To Reposition Himself And Accidently Stuck Himself Inshis Hand And Then Proceeded To Dig In My Husband'S Eye. Shortly After He Hurried Us Out & We Tried To Shrug This Off But The Hospital Has Called Harassing My Husband Saying He Will Be Arrested If He Doesn'T Come Have His Blood Drawn. A Day Later The Nurse Called Apologizing And Offering My Husband A Reward To Come Get Blood Drawn. What Can We Do? Seems Pretty Ridiculous That The Nurse Couldn'T Take A Second To Get A New Needle.
If the nurse stuck himself with that needle and then put it in your husband's eye then you have a law suit in the making. You need a lawyer. You also need to get specifics as to exactly what blood test the hospital is talking about and you need to have it done but not at that hospital or any clinic or Dr. affiliated with it. This could be serious so get an expert.
Help With Legal Advice?????
About Three Weeks Ago My So Called Friend And Neighbor Ran Over And Killedmy Beloved Dog Of 13 Years. He Says It Was An Accident, But Hasnt Offered Anything To Help With The Vet Bills Or Burial Costs. Needless To Say I Want To Rip The Jerks Throat Out, But He Isnt Worth Going To Prison Over. My Question Is Do I Have Any Legal Recourse To Take Him To Court To Sue For Damages Or Do I Have To Get Even The Old Fashioned Way? I Hope Karma Deals With Him In A Most Despicable Way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
your dog is considered your property... its a rather cold way of constituting what your pet is to you, but that is the law. So, if someone destroyed your property, you have a right for your propery to either be returned to you (in this case impossible for your beloved pet is dead) or be given restitution for its loss. I know that much. So, yes... I do beleive you may take legal action against that heartless b-stard who is your neighbor - but first, you have to be able to prove that it was his fault (reckless driving, drunken driving, etc.) then I beleive you may sue him for
(1) the actual cost of the dog
(2) the veterenary bills
(3) the funeral
(4) your immeasurable pain and anguish
Never had to do this myself but I did hear on the news just the other day that this criminal who shot and killed a cop and the cop's canine partner was going to be booked for murder (of the police man) and damage to government property (for the killed police dog). So... why not call a lawyer? I certainly would! Its bad enough to have lost your dog - but to be saddled with all the bills too? That's just too much.

Hows The Best Way To Find A Divorce Attorney?? Or Do You Know Any Very Powerfull Ones Around Lacrosse Wisconsin And If You Do Whats Their Name??
Be aware that a divorce attorney is very expensive especially if one drag out the proceedings by requesting a lot of continuances. I ended up paying $40,000 for my divorce which lasted over a course of 4 years because my attorney kept requesting continuances once we appeared in court.
If you select an attorney, ask him/her for a list of clients and call them to find out how the attorney services were to them.
