The 2011 federal district court opinion from the Middle District of Pennsylvania addressed a general public misconception regarding the Rule of Evidence 701. Indeed, Eric Lyons attempted to use his x-ray results and his physical symptoms against the defendants even though he lacked the expertise to prove that his broken rib injury resulted from his fight against Anthony Boyking. Furthermore, Lyons also believed that his contender benefited of the defendants’ involvement to defeat him. Certainly, Eric Lyons may have been accurate about his rights under the Eight Amendment, however, the law could not take into consideration his testimony due to the fact that his deposition would not qualify as a subject matter expert in the medical field. Thus, the pretrial order the defendants pursued to prevent the plaintiff 's personal contribution regarding his physical symptoms is legit regardless the truthfulness of Eric Lyons’s statement.
The Mississippi Supreme Court has also stated that “dismissal may be inappropriate when neglect is plainly attributable to an attorney rather than a blames client, or when a party’s simple negligence is grounded in confusion or sincere misunderstanding of the court’s orders.” The trial court apparently did accept the city attorney’s representation that the discovery failure was attributable to its office, but there are two important things to note. The City has never offered a more detailed explanation, and it has never offered a more detailed explanation, and it has never offered a basis for even this representation. Instead, it appears to be speculation by the City’s present counsel. Finally, the City contends that the trial court did not have the authority to order a sanction under Rule 37 of the Mississippi Riles of Civil Procedure without first entertaining a motion to compel discovery. The City asserts that it was entitled to an opportunity to cure the discovery failure before sanctions could be awarded.
If wounded, and they can 't be restored, how should they be compensated? If military service fails to provide veterans with the skills necessary to find work in the civilian sector, should the government take action? Reasonable people can disagree, and within that disagreement politics of the time rules. It is an extremely harsh irony to veterans waiting for service-connected disability compensation claims, treatment in understaffed VA facilities or struggling to find work, but this imperfect form of governance which is “our democracy”…..is precisely what they fought and risked their lives to
As acting Chief Justice John Marshall told Madison that what he had done was illegal, but since Marbury’s petition was out of jurisdiction Madison claimed it unconstitutional so the court could not order Madison to return the papers. During the Marbury vs Madison case many were able to identify unconstitutional issues regarding Marbury and his decisions.
Many patients have also claimed to feel pain during their operations. Justice Sonia Sotomayor and three other justices acknowledged that the district court relied on a fake expert witness who quoted from unknown sources and made claims that did not align with actual test data, but ultimately voted against using midazolam. Overall, it was decided by the majority that the prisoners failed to establish true evidence to prove the three part execution drug violates the Eighth Amendment. Justice Sotomayor explained, “In contending that midazolam will work as the State intends, Dr. Evans cited no studies, but instead appeared to rely primarily on the Web site www.drugs.com.” In my opinion, I think the Court’s decision was justified because there were only a few cases where the anesthesia only served to paralyze the victim while still allowing them to feel everything. The justices ruled on this case the same way as they did with the Baze v Rees case, there is no definite proof that the drug will cause a painful and torturous death, which means the drug cannot be
This case, unlike Disney’s, was settled by both Panayia and Six Flags and dismissed. Six Flags also found themselves in the middle of serval other lawsuits due to their policy change. And in at least one of those lawsuit, the court sided with the plantiff and found Six Flags guilty of violating the ADA laws. The Court found that Six Flags failed to provide evidence establishing why the new requirements were necessary and that a more individualized assessment of the safety risks to each rider is necessary to comply with federal and state
False memories Repressed memories are often recovered in therapy. The issue with treating a repressed memory that was recovered during therapy as contingent for a court case is that there is no way to prove that the therapy did not falsely construct the memory, leading to a false memory. A false memory can be misinterpreted as a repressed memory if the individual, for instance, feels a lot of emotion towards the false memory; “victims may experience ‘denial,’ an unconscious defense against painful or unbearable memories and feelings about the crime” (“How Crime Victims React to Trauma”). However, it is important to note that just because a “memory might be false does not mean that the person is deliberately lying” (Loftus, 1993, p. 525). False memories can be created unintentionally by the unconscious: or another way to explain how a memory can be constructed in therapy and believed to be truly recovered, one can look to false memory theories of “associative activation” and “thematic consistency” (Gallo, 2006, p. 51-53).
Besides, I will ask myself to predict any risk that may happen and prepare at least three possible alternative solutions to avoid nervous in emergency situations. In this way, time will not be wasted and problems also can be solved effectively and efficiently. Being patient also means to be persistent. This book reminds me that every great thing takes a long time to get the desired results. I have changed my attitude and know that every failure is just the process to
Specific course requirements might remedy some of the deficiencies of incompetent advocates such as inadequate knowledge or understanding of rules of evidence and/or procedure, but would not affect the deficiency of lack of preparation for trial. Trial advocacy courses would have a remedial effect on lack of preparation only to the extent that unpreparedness for trial is a result of not knowing how to prepare adequately. An empirical analysis of the Indiana rule concluded that the course requirements were not effective for promoting or ensuring competence, at least not in terms of bar examination results. Declining pass rates on the Indiana bar examination had led to the adoption of the rule. This is not to say that trial advocacy courses are not valuable but that their capacity to remedy this major deficiency of incompetent advocates is
Although the state disregarded the Full Faith and Credit clause, the court upheld the argument because the couple had not established bona fide residence in Nevada. To become a legal, bona fide resident of a State, one must reside there for the state’s required amount of time and have the intentions of residing there permanently or at the least, indefinitely. Williams and Hendrix clearly did not intend to do so. As a result, the two were convicted of bigamous cohabitation. The defendants, Williams and Hendrix, were prosecuted for bigamous cohabitation by the state of North Carolina.
