In this case, Dookhan cases appear to account for a mind-boggling 25 percent of all of the drug litigation that led to convicting in the seven constituency that uses the Hinton State Lab during Dookhan’s incumbency. Yet, Dookhan was let go on parole only because this was the first time prosecutors ad the list of all the defendants affected by the case. Annie Dookhan was convicted on drug charges from fabricating thousands of test results. For someone to face such a light sentence for ruining countless lives with falsification of many different evidences is seen as a disgrace. Falsification of evidence leads straight to convictions but there are many other ways one can become convicted in our criminal justice system(Lithwick,2016).

In today’s modern society, many feel that is okay for a police officer can kill a man armed with a harmful weapon at any cost. On many news channels, there are various amounts of articles and reports about a police officer committing this act. Even though a police officer has the right to take action against an armed man, this could be argued in many circumstances. In the 2013, Sammy Yatim was a young adult with a mental illness and was armed with a weapon on a streetcar in Toronto. Yatim was confronted by Const. James Forcillo, who took action against Yatim, shot multiple times and killed him. After an extensive trial, Const. James Forcillo was convicted with attempted murder and no additional charges were laid against him. For the reason
This case study of Vehar v. Cole National Group is a case where the plaintiff, Wendy Vehar, accused Cole National Group of sex discrimination claiming that as a female she was not being the same wage as a male for performing the same duties. Additionally this study will determine if the plaintiff established a valid prima facie as well as if there was a basis for equal work. Next, what factors did the appeals court base its decision and why is the other-than-sex factor that is presented by the employer insufficient to avoid a trial? Finally, what should the employer have done differently to ensure this type of situation did not occur in their business?

In 2013, the Supreme Court case Moncrieffe v. Holder refuses a Board of Immigration Appeals to removal from the United States of a lawful permanent resident based on a long term criminal conviction related to sole possession of small amounts of marijuana. The case finally made it all the way to the Supreme Court, which is considered a rather technical question of the interpretation of the U.S Immigration laws. Local police departments have long been accused of profiling Hispanic, African-Americans, and other minorities of race in law enforcement activities, including run of the mill traffic stop. Critics fear that immigration enforcement by state and local authorities will lead to increase of racism. Many Americans have shown concerns with the implementation of racist discrimination of the U.S immigration laws by state police agencies and local authorities.

On January 13, 1999 Hae Min Lee, a senior in Woodlawn High School, Baltimore, Maryland disappeared. Almost a month later, on February 9, 1999, her body was found lifeless in Leakin Park. Moreover, the autopsy stated that the cause of the victim’s death was manual strangulation. In the most unfortunate cases, the crime was blamed on her ex-boyfriend, Adnan Syed, who got convicted of first degree murder serving a life sentence in jail. Hae Lee’s death is shattering, but Adnan shouldn’t have been convicted of the crime because he is not guilty. Although it’s feasible that Adnan might have had the definite intention to slaughter Hae Lee because of the provided psychological facts included in the podcast, “Serial,” in which
Adnan Masud Syed, 19, was convicted of murder that sentenced him in prison for life on June 20, 2000. Mr. Syed was accused of strangling his ex girlfriend, Hae Min Lee, 18, and burying her body in Leakin Park on January 13th, 1999. The body was eventually uncovered and Adnan became the primary suspect after an anonymous call was made to the police a few weeks after the crime to investigate Adnan. The prosecutors had stated that Adnan’s motive of murdering Hae was because he was hurt and outraged when they broke up. To counter, the defense attorney had claimed that Adnan was an average American teen, incapable of murder, and he was an honors student at Woodlawn High School. I believe that Adnan Syed should be granted another trial because his

Shah Bros is an importer of a smokeless tobacco product. The company imports a product called gutkha from India. The product was classified by the customs department as snuff.
