Things such as the right to get a copy of medical records and the right to keep them private. I know these laws were in affect by the time Henrietta’s files were released. Her death certificate and things should not have been released regardless of the reasoning. The way all of the background was released for her book but it took 20+ years for her children to find out about her cells was ridiculous. No one had to ask could everything about Henrietta be released, but it was released without incident.
The disease is believed to date back to the 3rd century BCE. (Center of Disease Control, n.d.) And only had its first analysis made in the 4th century CE which is near the end of the Aztecs and was only eradicated (not cured) in 1975 after several failed attempts. This shows that the disease could have been fairly mysterious to the Aztecs considering the first analysis was made about the time they ended in a country that would have had much more advanced technology in comparison to the Aztec’s. It also tells us that even if the Aztecs managed to figure out what was causing the suffering to their population they would have no means of stopping
Issue In May 1996 Bad Frog put in application for brand label approval and registration pursuant to section 107-a(4)(a) of New York’s Alcoholic Beverage Control Law, and was denied that application in July (Bad Frog Brewery, Inc. v. New York State Liquor Authority). The issue presented here is whether banning the Bad Frog Brewery, Inc. beer label protecting children from vulgar and profane advertising, and by doing so, is New York State Authority (NYSLA) denying Bad Frog Brewery protection by the First Amendment under Commercial Speech. Rule of Law Commercial speech under Central Hudson Gas & Electric Corp. v. Public Service Commission, 447 U.S 557, 100 S. Ct. 2343, 65 L. Ed.2d 31 (1980).

After Arthur was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) in 2011, the men decided to marry and fully commit to each other before Arthur’s death from the fatal disease. They were married in Maryland, where same-sex marriage was legal, just three months before Arthur’s death. Because Ohio does not recognize same-sex marriages, Obergefell was not able to be named on Arthur’s death certificate as surviving spouse. The suit was filed in an attempt for Obergefell to be listed in this way.
The appeals court placed its emphasis on these elements of tortious interference: (1) “the existence of a business relationship (2) knowledge of the relationship on the part of the defendant; (3) an intentional and unjustified interference with the relationship by the defendant; and (4) damage to the plaintiff as a result of the breach of the relationship.” Additionally, the court sought to find if the tort elements were congruent with the following assertions made by Gossard. Nursefinders and Gossard had an agreement that prohibited a parent or affiliate of Nursefinders from providing similar services within Gossard’s territory. Adia knew of the agreement prior to its purchase. Adia purchased Star Med, a direct competitor operating in Gossard’s franchise territory. Contrarily, The Supreme Court applied a more narrow focus on the question of law posed by the eleventh circuit and focused strictly on whether Adia was bound to a contract established prior to acquiring Nursefinders and Star Med.
FEC, Citizens United argued two primary points as follows; Section 203 of the BCRA is in violation of the First Amendment in regards to their film Hilary: The Movie and the associated advertisements and Sections 201 and 203 of the BCRA are also unconstitutional as applicable to their situation. The film was produced with the intent of raising public awareness of issues that Citizens United perceived as what the “Clinton’s want America to forget.” This entailed highlighting “the Clinton scandals of past and present” (Quijano, 2009). Following the Courts ruling, corporations were essentially given cart blanc freedom to spend money directly on candidate advocacy or “electioneering communications.” As per the FEC’s argument, the issue with this is that there is a high probability of corruption as “large independent expenditures generate more influence than direct campaign contributions.” This is especially evident in parties, which don’t accept corporate contributions, for instance the green party. The disproportionate sums of money from corporate donations greatly overwhelm what the average individual can provide. This, in turn, shifts focus and marginalizes the speech of other groups, which distorts public debates.
Pepsi was also ordered to provide job offers and training to their applicants (bantheboxcampaign.org).

Rendón wrote Chicano Manifesto, which talks about how the U.S government violated the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo. He states that the treaty is an important document for Mexican American (Bixler-Márquez, Ortega, & Solórzano Torres, 25). David Sánchez played a role in the Chicano Movement. He founded the Brown Beret; which claims that Santa Catalina Island was never in the treaty and is still part of Mexico.
The large scale of immigration, both legal and illegal, has brought up issues such as national security and the U.S. economy. The U.S. Senate is struggling to find a viable solution; they can’t seem to come up with a plan on how to deal with immigration that appeases both sides of the political spectrum.
