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.
How Do You Find A Good Lawyer For Handling Disability?
I Want To Know That If Im Hiv Positive, Would A Lawyer Take My Case To File For Disability And Help Me Win My Case? This Is All Just So Nerve Racking For Me, Ill Need Help For Paying For My Medications Too, Unfortunatly!!
there are disability lawyers that advertise,and specialize in that one thing.i got my lawyer through a friend and was successful in being qualified for benefits,and one year later i received medicare.the first thing you need to do is have medical records that substantiate you illness.you must do this prior to finding a lawyer.different health issues can speed the process and i believe that hiv may be considered an urgent disability,where the waiting period is very short.once you have a diagnosis,and a lawyer,then it is important that your work history end before you file.that's not convenient,but they will not review your case if you are employed.1)doctor,diagnosis2)lawyer3)fil... with social security.patients will be important as they will have considerable papers to fill out and waiting is no fun,but it is standard.my brother in law had cancer,and the process moved fast.as you case is serious help should be faster.

What Is Usually Done With The First Visit With A Divorce Attorney?
Do mean what happens at the first visit?
You and the Attorney have a general discussion about divorce in your State, including your grounds for the divorce. The Attorney advises you about State laws concerning custody/visitation/spousal support/child support, division of assets and debts.
He/she will give you an estimate of how many hours he/she "predicts" he/she will need to work on your divorce, including preparation time, time in Court, time on the telephone, any and all time spent. He/she will quote you an hourly rate (in my area about $275 an hour), explain the billing procedure - usually monthly. If the Attorney has paraprofessionals (who cannot, by law, give legal advice) their hourly for all they do is much lower than the Attorney's rate.
The Attorney will ask you for a retainer and will bill hours against the retainer until the retainer is gone. In some cases the Attorney then begins to bill you monthly. Sometimes the Attorney requests another retainer. The minimum retainer in my area is $3,000.
Then you either sign a retainer agreement and pay the retainer (money) or you decide to seek another Attorney or - in some cases - not file for divorce.
In general, the "moneyed party" (the party with the better income) is asked to pay for the legal fees of the other party. Unless there is a huge difference in income/assets this is usually denied by the Judge.
Pregnet With My Boyfriends Baby, And Not Legaly Separated Or Divorced Form My Husband.?
About 10 Months Ago I Finally Got The Courage To Leave My Husband Of 5 Years. The Marrage Has Been Over For The Last 2 Years. We Have 2 Beautiful Girls Together. Well For The Last 10 Months I Have Been With My Boyfriend, He Has Been My Rock And My Night And Shinning Armor Thew This Whole Emoshional Roller Coaster With My Husband. Well Just 2 Weeks Ago I Found Out That My Boyfriend And I Are Going To Have A Baby. My Boyfriend Is So Excieted And I'M Really Nerves. Well My Boyfriend Wants Me To Move In With Him Not Work Just Stay Home With The Kids. This Is What I Have Always Wanted To Be A Stay At Home Mom To Raise My Kids. Well My Husband Has Told Me That He Wants To Take The Kids And Run. Well My Questions Is Do You Think My Husband Can Take My Kids From Me Due To We Are Not Leagly Seperated Or Divorced And Pregnet With My Boyfriend Baby?
“do you think my husband can take my kids from me due to we are not leagly seperated or divorced and pregnet with my boyfriend baby?”
Can he get custody merely because you’re pregnant with another man’s child? No.
Is it going to end up being a battle because you’ve moved his children in with this man? It very well could. It depends on how much he wants to push it, if he can dig up any dirt on the man, etc.
I do think you need to reconsider quitting your job, because when you go to court your income will be ZERO. You can’t support your children with zero income. Yes, boyfriend will be providing for you, but still YOUR income will be zero. Boyfriend is not obligated to support your kids and at any time he could ‘remove’ his support (I know, you’re sure he won’t do that, but he can).
I’d highly suggest that you talk to a local attorney before you do anything.
By the way, if your husband is threatening to take the kids and run, then you need to get a temporary custody order, because if you don’t have that he can waltz right into the school/babysitter/etc and pick them up (without a temporary custody order, he has just as much right as you do to pick up those children).
