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.
What Is Requesting Publication Mean? After Attempts To Serve.?
Trying To Understand This Quote From My Other Collection Agency Credit Collecting Question;
&Quot;&Quot;&Quot;&Quot;&Quot;Service Is Something That Has To Be Done In Person Or Certified Mail (Acknowledged Receipt). If They Attempt To Serve You And Can'T They Can Request Publication.
If A Judge Decides They'Ve Made A Sufficient Effort To Get A Hold Of You He'Ll Give Them Permission To Publish The Summons For 4 Weeks Or So And Then You Will Have Been Served.&Quot;&Quot;&Quot;&Quot;&Quot;&Quot;&Quot;
My Question About The Above Quote:
What Exactly Is Publication? Published In What? A Newspaper?
Please Explain Publication To Me Like I Am A 10 Year Old. Thank You.
Published in a newspaper, yes. Have you ever looked in the way back pages of a newspaper and seen those things in tiny print that say "LEGAL NOTICE" on the top? That's what those are. If they make a good-faith effort to mail something to you and cannot find you at your last known address of record, they will fulfill the legal requirements of serving you by instead publishing a notice in the local newspaper of that town.
In other words, yes, you CAN be sued even if you claim nobody ever sent you a summons.
If You Had A Conviction Overturned. Should You Use The Original Trial Attorney Again?
The Reason For The Guilty Verdict Pertains To How The Judge Instructed The Jurors, Not Incompetance On The Attorney'S Part.
Take a step back and anaylze your trial attorneys work product. Were you satisfied with his ability, effort? Did he object to the jury instructions that perfected your appeal and didn't waive it? If he objected to the exact issue that the appellate court overturned the conviction then he was on the ball. Do you feel that you were represented well? There are alot of questions you need to answer before you make that decision. Don't forget your trial attorney already got a first hand view of what worked and didn't work in the first trial. Getting a do over through no fault of his own is always better for the defense, however it also works out better for the presecution. Good luck.
What Are Some Majors That I Can Major In That Will Help Me In Law School To Become A Personal Injury Lawyer?
What Are Some Majors That I Can Take In College That Will Prepare Me For Law School. Im Looking Foward To Become A Personal Injury Lawyer.
You will learn all you need to learn about PI law in practice. That's why it's called the practice. I doubt that classes in law school even properly prepare you for personal injury practice. So pick the major that best interests you.
You'll be surprised at how much law school doesn't teach you how to practice. It's a broken system. Sure, you'll learn that negligence involves duty, breach, causation, and damages, but how do you convince a client that you're better than the next guy? How do you build experience in P.I. law? What ethical situations arise when you know you could be making money but you know the client is wrong or that the other side is incompetent? You'll struggle with these issues, and no college major or academic program can adequately prepare you for it.
I'd hate to put words in your mouth, but I'm only venturing to guess that you're interested in law school because it will provide security, independence, or both. The profession is actually not the lucrative and prestigious career as portrayed in mass media and in law school admission brochures. Imagine 100 applicants competing for a position that starts at 40k and requires a law degree. That's 40k before taxes and student loans payments, which can be $1000 a month for some people. There are lawyers who can easily pay that, but most can't.
Family Court Issues Wisconsin?
Im Asking This For My Boyfriend. He Has A Court Agreement To See His Daughter Every Tuesday N Thursday From 4-7Pm At His Daughters Mothers House. She Moved/ Got Evicted And Wont Let Him Ser His Daughter Or Tell Him Where She Is Living. She Has Canceled Two Visits. Wat Can He Do. Can He Get Custody. Wat Rights Does He Have In Wisconsin?
He needs to go down to the Court and file a Order to Show Cause Re: Contempt. Mother is in contempt of the Court order. If it is in the best interest of the child to modify custody/visitation, father should petition the Court for that as well. The Court won't give him custody or alter the agreement just because mom is in contempt. Since dad does not even have overnights, it makes one believe that theCourt feels full time with mom is in the best interest of the child.
