Objections that the prosecution and/or defense should have been made. On page 1, line 22 the objection would be that under Federal Rule of Evidence Rules 405(a) and 608(a). There can only be testimony as to a point of view or the character and not testimony in support of the point of view. Leading to the questioning of the witness to his point of view, of his reputation is the witness' statement of the point of view that is not permitted. On page 2, lines 12 and 13 with reference to the statement of the witness with respect to Mr. Michelson's “reputation is very good in the community...who will never start an argument and never hold a grudge against anyone”; Federal Rule of Evidence Rules 405(a) and 608(a).
In this case, there was “indication”, that “appropriate steps” were taken to revoke any implied licence. Moreover, any implied licence granted could be believed to extend only to the front door, where they may engage in “lawful communication” with the body corporate, which according to the material facts was not even attempted. On the other hand, the majority decision stated that “the law is not such an ass that the implied…license…is restricted to…stepping over the item of property or around the child”, so long as the “passer-by” holds “a legitimate purpose that in itself involves no interference with the occupier’s possession nor injury to the occupier...or their property” (pg8). Overall, a court would probably conclude that any licence the police held did not extend to the lawful apprehension of
1.2 What are the advantages of Victim Offender Mediation for the victim? (2) The first and foremost advantage of this kind of mediation for the victim is that he or she can confront the offender face to face and ask him as to why did he commit such a crime. The victim can ask the offender all the questions that could never have been answered in a criminal proceeding. Secondly, the victim can openly describe the emotional damage experienced by him or her to the offender itself. Thirdly, the victim has the opportunity to ask for an apology from the offender.
On the one hand, international courts have said that there is no such immunity available whilst, the position in the International Court of Justice differs allowing for heads of state immunity under customary international law. In the case of Pinochet it was argued that immunity is only applicable if the acts that have been committed were part of the official capacity and duties of the head of state. Thus, no head of state has the authority to torture any individuals as it amounts to a violation of jus
His conviction was declared by the Court of Appeals. Lochner plead to the Supreme Court. He stated that the Bakeshop Act was unconstitutional. Like that it interfered with freedoms protected by the 14th Amendment. A man by the name of Justice Holmes agreed with Lochner in stating, “So long as a fundamental right was not violated, the majority’s will should not be struck down”.
The Court said that a state law that “implies merely a legal distinction” between the two races did not conflict Fisher 4 with the 13th Amendment abolishing involuntary servitude by a seven to one vote (“Plessy v. Ferguson” par. 3) . The Court avoided discussing the protection granted by the clause in the 14th Amendment that prohibits the states to make laws depriving citizens of their “privileges or immunities . ” The Court said that the purpose of the 14th Amendment was “to enforce the absolute equality of the two races before the law… Laws … requiring their separation … do not necessarily imply the inferiority of either race (“Plessy v. Ferguson” par. 4).” In my opinion, I do not agree with the majority ruling . If I lived in the time period when segregation was prevalent, I most likely would have agreed with the ruling. Blacks and whites were separated at the time, so many people were adapted them not being allowed to intertwine . Today, I believe that we are all created equally, and that we should not be judged by the color of our skin. The Plessy v . Ferguson case started the “separate but equal” statement, and it lasted for decades.
“It is not about what we do, but too what we do not do, for which we are accountable.” No action doesn’t amount to no crime but the statute arbitrates create offences of omission. In Bratty V Attorney-General , Lord Denning said that it must be a voluntary act to be punished. Voluntary act is when an individual has complete control and conscious exercise of will on his/her body. Saying if A failed to save B, but A did no positive act to cause B’s death, should A be liable? Omission cannot form the base of actus reus of an offence.
In Article Three of the Constitution, it states “No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.” This means that the judicial branch is the only branch that can judge whether or not an act is considered treason. This means that the judicial provides for the common defense by making sure that no enemy can infiltrate
But that does not mean that it is beyond the power of Parliament to do such things. If Parliament chose to do any of them the courts could not hold the Act of Parliament invalid” (Madzimbamuto v Lardner-Burke (1969) – Lord Reid) What the statute itself enacts cannot be unlawful, because what the statute says is itself the law, and the highest form of law that is known to this country. It is the law which prevails over every other form of law, and it is not for the court to say that a parliamentary enactment, the highest law in this country, is illegal.” (Cheney v Conn ) ord Denning: "can anyone imagine that Parliament could or would reverse these laws and take away their independence? Most clearly not. Freedom, once given cannot be taken away" (Blackburn v AG (1971)) 3) No body, including a court of law, can question the validity of an Act of
• Audi alterm partem – hear the other party. NEMO JUDEX CAUSA SUA: Rule against bias. No one should be made a judge in his own cause. Bias means a favoured judgement in favour of a party regarding an issue. Rule against bias flows from two principles: • No one should be a judge in his own cause • Justice should not only be done but manifested and undoubtedly be seen to be
This is a respectful submission of the prosecution arguments regarding the case R. v. Collins. The arguments will show that the evidence ceased at from the accused should be admissible in the court of law as a Mrs. Collins section 8 Charter right was not violated (R. v. Collins,  1 S.C.R. 265). Case laws along other judge’s interpretation will reinforce the arguments presented. The paper will establish arguments based on reasonable grounds, the good faith doctrine and the admissibility of evidence.
Therefore, many defendants choose to enter a plea bargain agreement with the prosecution. What is Plea Bargaining? A plea bargain is an agreement between the prosecutor and the defendant in a criminal case. The prosecutor gives the defendant the opportunity to plead guilty to a lesser charge or to the original charge with less than the maximum sentence. For example, the prosecution and the defense may agree to a misdemeanor charge instead of a felony charge or the parties may agree to a sentence of 12 years instead of 20 years if the recommended sentence for that crime is 10-20 years imprisonment.
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. The argument was based on the phrase “perform the functions of a juror” included in Section 4 (3L) of the J.A 1995. 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
