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.
Will Van Der Hoot Get Away Clean?
The Best Criminal Attorneys Of Holland Are Defending Him And Diplomatic Pressure From Holland Is Being Put On The Judicial System Of Peru Will This Be Enough?
Can you support your claim that he will be receiving the best criminal attorneys from Holland or that Holland is exerting diplomatic pressure on Peru? I'm not being a wise guy, I haven't read that and would like to see where that came form.
An article that I read today said he received a State appointed attorney in Peru, the equivalent of a public defender in the United States, and the embassy sent a translator, also a normal procedure for an embassy with one of their citizens being questioned in a foreign nation. He confessed during this questioning and was turned over to the prosecutors office. They made no mention of any Dutch attorneys or diplomatic pressure. Please let me know where you got that information

Adoption Differences... Agency Verses Lawyer??
I Am Going To Adopt A Baby, And Am Just In The Beginning Stages Of Doing Research. Can Anyone Help Me With Advise Or Info Regarding The Pro'S And Con'S Of Each? ( Adoption Agency Vs. Adoption Attourney )
it depends. do your research on both. normally an agency does the advertising for you, and has a higher amount of birthmothers. an attorney only has the birthmothers that are referred to them by word of mouth. you will be left to do you own advertising, and will have to figure out what questions to ask as to wether or not the birthmother is serious about her adoption plan. an agency is more expensive, but once you figure in the advertising cost, and the prescreening and help they can provide for the birthmother it's well worth it in my opinion. depending on your wants for a child, the wait with the attorney tends to be longer than an agency. what state are you located in? i know a great adoption attorney, whose wife is a social worker and they run an agency in kansas. they seem to have many situations. they were referred to me by the agency that my birthmother was listed with. so i did end up paying the agency fee, as well as the attorney fee. but my wait time was less than 48 hours for a match and our daughter was born a month later. my friend gave their info to my agency and also was matched within 48 hours. and their daughter is due to be born in march. this agency has birthmothers in many states, and requires no fees until a match is made. they prescreen and require proof of pregnancy for the birthmother. their average wait time for a match for a caucasion baby is 6 months. they require no fees be paid until a match is made and if the birthmother should decide to parent, all of your fees roll over into the next match. and even if you do go through an agency, you should have your own personal attorney. by just going with an attorney you are eleminating the agency and fees with them, but you become the agency and have to accept the responsibility of advertising and screening prospective birthparents. personally i think this can be dangerous for you, and the wait and stress will be less if you have an agency involved. either way i hope you find your child and bring them home soon. good luck.
