The court noted that neither the written job description for the inspector positions nor the mutual agreement made reference to the rotation of the job. The Job rotation policy had never been the general practice of this company in the past. The court also noted that the inspector position does not exist for the purpose of having employees rotate between lines 7, 8 and 9, the use of a rotation system had no bearing on the number of employees needed to perform the work, and rotating between lines is not a highly desirable function for which plaintiff was exactly hired, Indeed, it is the contrasting of a specialized skill of the employees. The court stopped short of actually deciding that job rotation is not an essential function of this job and leaving that determination for the

The court justified is decision in the case by stating that, section 35 applies to rights in existence when the Constitution Act,1982 came into effect; it does not revive extinguished rights.

(finnerty) The decision in 2008 Court of Appeals case Navajo Nation v. United States Forest Service made it clear that emotivism and authoritarianism, rather than the need for logic and rational justification, have been behind the Court’s claimed inability to respond when justice and fairness demand consideration of competing goods or principles. The court ruled that the use of recycled wastewater on sacred tribal land does not constitute a substantial burden on religion under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. (court case), which showed that the majority’s opinion misstates the law under RFRA, fails to prevent intrusions on religion protected by RFRA, and misunderstands religious belief and practice.

When the defendant’s wrong does not fit in any of these pigeon holes he is said to have committed no tort. Hence this theory of Salmond is also known as pigeon hole theory. However the theory of pigeon hole has been criticized by the latter writers as they feel this theory, if accepted, will put an end to the growth and evolution of the new categories of liability in tort and the Courts could be prevented from identifying any new torts based on the violation of the legal rights of a person. Torts are infinitely various and not limited and confined. The novelty of claim may arise and Court may recognize a novel claim.

A prohibition on seeking disclosure jury deliberations in the Jury Act would also not apply to an AUSLAN interpreter. The plurality held that the decision of the deputy registrar to exclude Ms Lyons from juror duty was not unlawful under the A.D.A 1991 and instead vetoed the contention that the disclosure or jury contemplations to an interpreter was lawful.

Additionally, the plurality also rejected the appellant’s contention that Section 54 (1) of the J.A 1995 extended a grant of leave to an AUSLAN. Section 54 (1) of the J.A only allows for the officer of the court
To begin looking at Leser v. Garnett, it is important to look at each contention individually, and the arguments against it (as, during each objection, the Supreme Court unanimously against it). As discussed in the Yale Law Journal, “The first contention, that “so great an addition to the electorate, if made without the state’s consent, destroys its autonomy as a political body” and thus deprives the state of equal representation in the Senate.” In a unanimous decision, the Supreme Court voted against the objection, referencing the 15th amendment. While the 15th amendment was not “adopted in accordance with law,” it was accepted with reluctance, but no protesting.

Swift & Co., 323 U.S. 134, “Congress has not authorized a federal agency to pre-empt state law directly, the weight this Court accords the agency 's explanation of state law 's impact on the federal scheme depends on its thoroughness, consistency, and persuasiveness.” Therefore, based on these arguments Wyeth should be liable under a state law claim that the label was inadequate and could have altered the label to increase drug safety making use of CBR regulation.
