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.
Does Anyone Know A Free Bankruptcy Lawyer?
I'Ve To Go Bankruptcy,And I Can'T Afford A Lawyer,I Know There Are Some Community Firms That Can Help,But I Don'T Know Anyone. Thanks For Your Help
Well, think about that for a moment. Everybody who files bankruptcy is broke. Otherwise they wouldn't be filing bankruptcy. If bankruptcy attorneys didn't charge their clients because the clients are all broke, then there wouldn't be any bankruptcy attorneys because they would all have to go get other jobs because they would be making $0 from being bankruptcy attorneys.
That wouldn't make any sense either.
If you really, truly have absolutely $0 income and $0 assets, then you probably don't need to file bankruptcy. You are what is considered "judgment proof" (i.e., even if your creditors sue you, there is nothing they can get from you).
In general (and this is VERY generally speaking) you only need to file bankruptcy if you have something you need to protect, such as an income (that you need to use for necessities such as food, etc. rather than paying off unrepayable debts).
Most bankruptcy attorneys offer a free first appointment. Among other things, they can help you figure out whether you actually need to file bankruptcy or not (if not, save your money). If you do need to file bankruptcy, the attorney should be able to help you figure out how to pay for it -- being broke when you need to file bankruptcy is a problem that bankruptcy attorneys are VERY familiar with (it is true of virtually all their clients).
The court never pays the attorney fees, but sometimes you can get the filing fees waived.
Do Law Schools Practice Affirmative Action?
I Am A Black Female.I Went To 2 Colleges. My Aa Gpa Is A 2.2 But My University Gpa Is A 3.5 But I Have Struggled And Had To Re Do F'S To Get It.
So I Am Wondering As To My Chances Of Getting Into Law School.
Can I Get In?
Is It Easier As A Black Female To Be Accepted?
Most law schools, like other institutions of higher learning, do have policies in place to ensure the existence of a diverse student body.
That said, your GPA is only one consideration. Your LSAT score is perhaps the greatest consideration. You could have an amazing undergraduate GPA, but do miserably on the LSAT, and have a hard time being accepted to a lot of the better law schools. Having a very high LSAT score, however, can compensate for a lower undergraduate GPA. The idea is that the LSAT is the best predictor of one's performance in law school.
So, yes, you can get in. Your GPA and LSAT will play the biggest role in determining where you get in. The admissions committee will likely consider your race in the admissions process, but for any candidate, regardless of race, leadership abilities, community service, and any number of other factors, the admissions committee will likely only stray so far from its GPA/LSAT ranges.
In A Child Abuse Case Will A Contingency Lawyer Take The Case?
There is no such thing as a contingency lawyer. Lawyers in specific fields of law take cases on a contingency basis. That does not make them contingency lawyers. There is no contingency on their licenses whatsoever. It is unlikely that such a case would be taken on contingency.
