Why Would A President And His Attorney General Place Thousands Of Weapons In Criminal Hands Of Another Country?
President Obama'S And Eric Holder Placed Thousands Of Taxpayer-Funded Assault Rifles In The Hands Of Mexican Narcotraficos Under Their Operation Fast And Furious, That Will Be Killing Many Thousands Of Innocent People For Years To Come.
I Can Understand Liberal Desire To Sacrifice Thousands Of Lives They Consider Worthless, To Create A Public Outcry That Would Enable Further Federal Restrictions Of Firearms, But Could Another Reason Be To Further Destabilize Mexico, So That It Too Can Be Collapsed And Rebuilt With Another Form Of Government?
What Are Various Reasons President Obama And Attorney General Holder Would Want To Arm Criminals In Our Neighboring Country Of Mexico.
Because he sold out to the Federal Reserve, Wachovia was busted for laundering money in 2009 and became "Wells Fargo" I guess we are supposed to forget. 400 Billion dollars in Laundering money and 20 thousand lives lost. And now Holder and Obama are sending Guns down there.
It was reported by alternative media (of course, who else?) that the gun problems in Mexico were actually a result of the billions of dollars cartels make per year, with the help of our largest financial institutions who are more than happy to launder their drug money, and the fact that they will stop at nothing to acquire the weapons. As it turns out, most of the guns being smuggled into Mexico come from countries other than the United States, including Russia and China.
Difference Between Law Schools?
I’M A College Sophomore, And I’M Considering Law School After Graduation. Currently In New York For College But I’M Originally From The West Coast. The Two Schools That I’M Shooting For Is Either Stanford Or Berkeley. Stanford Is Ranked Higher But Is There Any Difference Between The Two Schools. Will It Be Easier To Get Jobs From Stanford? How Important Is Rank?
As a practicing California attorney and Stanford law alum, I can tell you that the difference with respect to job prospects after graduation is very minimal. While its true that some firms simply don’t hire graduates of lower ranked schools, Stanford and Boalt Hall (Berkeley’s Law School) have consistently been ranked in the top 10 schools in the country. Any firm recruiting at Stanford will also be recruiting at Boalt. You will earn the same and your work will also be evaluated the same.
The one area where going to a higher ranked school may have an impact is if you decide to practice very far away (geographically) from the location of your law school.
My friends from law school who wanted to practice in New York or DC had no problems finding jobs. Similarly, while my firm mostly hires graduates from CA schools, new associates from Yale, Harvard, Columbia, NYU, etc. is not uncommon. However, we don't have associates from other highly ranked but non-elite law school from outside California. While I know for a fact Boalt grads are practicing out east, it just seems to me that fewer Boalt grads move east. This may be attributed to a greater personal desire from Stanford grads to practice east or it may be a result of Stanford’s higher ranking. If it can be attributed to Stanford's rank, then its a very minimal bump. I still think that a JD from Boalt will not harm you in anyway. My hunch is that your academic record in school and how well you interview will have a bigger impact on your job prospects than whether your law degree says Stanford or Boalt. Now, I’m not in a position to make hiring decisions, but I’ve been at the same firm for 5 years and I’ve had discussions with partners who do make hiring decisions.
Law students sometimes place too much emphasis on which school they go to. Once you get into practice, you will find out that the law school you attended is most helpful in securing your first job. After that, your work performance will determine if you will be invited to stay at that firm, advance toward partner track, or if your work product will allow you to secure positions at larger and more prestigious firms. While my firm does not hire new law graduates from any school ranked lower than 30, we have several attorneys in the firm from lower ranked schools that came to us as lateral hires from other firms. Usually, they are very competent attorneys with proven track records. While rankings are important, your job prospects will ultimately be dictated by your abilities.
Ah, yes from the poster below I can see how my answer might give you the impression that ranking does not matter. My comment deals with differences in rank within the top 10 law schools.The law student below is absolutely correct when he says rankings matter. They do and thats just a fact of the legal profession.
Court Appointed Lawyers?
What Are The Qualifications For A Person To Be Able To Get A Court Appointed Lawyer And Can The Application Fee Be Waived? Serious Answers Only Please. Thanks.
First, your answer will depend upon which state the person is in.
Second, the answer will depend upon what type of case the person is involved in.
In general, lawyers are not appointed in civil cases.
A lawyer will be appointed in criminal cases (other than infractions in which no jail time is risked) if requested, however the person requesting an appointed lawyer will need to reimburse the court for the cost of the attorney if review of the person's finances shows that he or she was able to pay. The amount of reimbursement varies from location to location.
Some other case types, such as dependency (where the state has taken the children from a parent and alleges unfitness), also appoint lawyers, and the mechanism for reimbursement, if any, varies from state to state.
If a person is facing a criminal charge, it would not hurt to consult the public defender at the earliest court appearance to determine whether or not to accept appointed counsel, or request a continuance to hire a private attorney.
I Need Information On Divorce Procedures And A Lawyer Willing To Help.?
Honey, you aren't exactly going to have lawyers on here willing to help for free. There could be alot of things that play into your divorce. Sometimes it's more complex than a simple filing procedure and that would depend upon children and property, as well as if there was a pre-nup and any other provisions. If you have none of the above, then filing is easy. Simply go to your state website, find your county and click on courthouse. There should be an icon for down loadable forms (which is free and all states have them), then fill them out. Make four copies and take them to your clerk of courts in the courthouse. They will stamp them, keep one and give you back three. Then you need to take two and go to your sherriff's department to have your spouse served by them. This is the cheapest way to go. After that, keep one copy for yourself, show up at the court date given and you'll be granted legal separation until the next court date. That usually happens within 90 days (it's called a cooling off period). Then you show up at that next court date and you are then granted your divorce.
Hope this helps. Now keep in mind, if you have children, and other issues, the process is more complicated and other people are often brought in to assist.
Strict Liability - Personal Injury In Regard To Damages In Contract ( Not Tort)?
If You Wished To Seek Damages In Contract, Apart From Proving The Product That You Purchased, Caused The Personal Injury, Do You Also Have To Show Remoteness ? I.E That It Was Something That Was In Reasonable Contemplation Of The Breach? In Order To Obtain Damages?
No - you do not have to "Prove" remoteness - only that you used the "product" for the purpose intended and with due regard to any possible physical damage. In other words if you used a hammer, and hit your thumb - you may not sue for damages, as you were aware of the danger of using this tool.
