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.
We Are Getting Divorce. With Lawyer To Without?
Me And Wife( Both 47) Are Getting Divorce. What Is The Advantage And Disadvantage Of Getting An Attorney? Are They Expensive? Where Can I Find A Reasonable Attorney? Thanks. Will Pick The Best A Later
First, good divorce lawyers are expensive, but not really necessary unless its a contested divorce. If the both of you are in total agreement, you can get forms and do it yourself or get an paralegal, which is a better way and a whole lot cheaper than an atty., and a paralegal does the attys paperwork anyway. He can fill out all the necessary forms, give you legal advice and file forms with the courts. Check your local yellow pages or nearby university with a legal dept. If there are no children involved, then its pretty easy, just settle as you wish and get it on paper with both signatures. Once you get a court date, then after the judge makes his decision, then usually 30 days later its gets filed in public records and your divorce is final. Good luck to you both
Separation And Divorce Laws?
I Live In Maryland With My Husband - We Recently Decided To File For Divorce So I Moved To Georgia Temporarily. I Need To Know If There Is Paperwork That Must Be Filed Now Or If We Are Supposed To Wait The 366 Days (Time Required For Separation) Before Actually Having To Sign Paperwork At A Court House.
I Understand That Proof Must Be Given To Support That We Have In Deed Been Separated For That Specific Time. So Do We Just Wait The Time And Then Go To Sign Paperwork, Or Is There Paperwork That Needs To Be Done Before The Separation Time Legally Begins?
Thanks For Your Help!
Even If You Live In Other States, It Would Still Be Beneficial To Know What Others Have Had To Do.
If you moved to Georgia, you can file there. You just have to live there for 6 months before you can file.
"In Georgia, you are legally separated if you are no longer engaging in marital relations and you consider yourself to be in an actual state of separation. You can be separated even if you are living in the same household as your spouse. To file a case for divorce, you must be in such a state of separation. The court will not grant you a "legal separation". Rather, you must swear that you are in an actual state of separation and then the court can grant a divorce or an Order for "Separate Maintenance".

Legal Advice Only Please: Custody, Child Endangerment, Denying Visitation?
I Have A Custody Order For Physical Primary Guardianship Of My Daughter. My Ex Husband Has Negleted Her Needs During Her Visitations With Him. I Had To Take Her To The Hospital After A Visit With Him For Severe Conjunctivitis And 2 Infected Toes And A Rash On Her Behind. I Want To Know If I Can Break Court Order And Refuse Him Visitation In The State Of Pennsylvania, Due To Welfare Of Child, Until Seen By Judge. I'Ve Called Lawyer And She Has Yet To Get Back To Me. His Visitation Starts Again Friday Through Sunday. I'Ve Made A Report To Children And Youth And The Abuse Hotline, They Both Said To Contact A Lawyer. I Need Some Serious Actual Legal Advice, Immediately. Thank You So Much!!!
Oh Lord. I hate to hear about these types of cases why I left this particular field. Unfortunately you cannot do that. You will literally be jeopardizing your guardianship of your daughter. What can be done is an emergency hearing can be held due to the circumstances, but without your attorney returning your calls you can attempt to do it yourself. All court houses have offices where they help individuals fill out this paperwork. I would call the attorney again and make sure to leave a message it is an absolute emergency and your daughters health and welfare are at stake! I sincerely wish you the best of luck. I wish I could be of more help to you.
