Had it not been for the harming video of Thicke’s and Williams’ deposition I don’t believe the jury would have convicted them. Secondly, in many copyright cases if there is a significant differences between the original item in this case song for the new item no law is broken. Yet, they based the case on a rhythm/feeling of the song. This is extremely base on a person interpretation and opinion of music. With that said, I believe the jury made their decision on emotion and not of actual
AFFIRMED.” Taser International Inc. cannot be held liable, based on the information available at the time, for not issuing warnings that repeated exposure to its product could lead to death, said an appellate court, in upholding dismissal of a 2004 wrongful death lawsuit. To conclude, I support the decision of the courts in the case of Rosa vs Taser International, Inc. Under tort law, strict liability the plaintiff needed to prove the defendant’s product was responsible for the death of their son. Taser International Inc. was able to prove their product met the safety standards and documentation, with the taser gun. A key point noted by the court also affirmed, the risk of lactic acidosis was not knowable in
Overall, yes having so many TV shows to choose from is making our nation and our families more divided, because it also came along with new technology which gave people a way to watch TV where and whenever they want to. In the Paired texts “The Box That Changed America” and “Television Transformed” by Lauren Tarshis it
This calculated move removed Frank who was the gun advocate out of a leadership role and more of an adversarial position. The Wendell Rohr played by Dustin Hoffman also played a major part in the moral and ethical battle fought against the Fitch and the gun company. When Marlee introduced the note about the purchase of a jury Rohr objected furiously, expressing to Lawrence Green played by Jeremy Piven that justice ceases if justice can be bought for a price (Williams & Arrigo, 2012). Rohr wanted to represent for his clients and the worth and dignity of all human beings and also because it was the right thing to do. On the other hand, Fitch made it known to the gun companies while at their meeting that a verdict important as this one can not be left up to a jury, they must make the decision for them.
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
Pornography can only be banned if considered obscene, which was determined during the Ferber Case. In the case of Miller v. California,) Ferber did not want to reflect on what the state considered obscene. Ferber was more interested in prosecuting those who promote the
They have ignored the advice of the highest medical and legal authorities we have here and overseas. Our government claims that as humans we are innocent until proven guilty, however this is not the case as we are locking up these unfortunate people upon their arrival. Human rights commission released that what the government was doing is illegal. Our nation in response focused not on the mistreatment of these innocent beings but instead asked for the resignation of the human rights commissioner, Gillian Triggs for shedding the truth of what is really
In theory, the abolishment of guns would not have an effect on the levels of gun-related violence as gun control laws do not deter crime; the improper use of guns and firearms falling into the hands of the mentally-ill and unstable deters crime. Gun control will infringe upon the right to self-defense and deny citizens a sense of safety, and lastly, criminals will find their own means to obtain weapons illegally regardless of what laws are set in
Allusion- One idea we discussed in the Socratic Seminar was the reason why Kurt Vonnegut chose to have Embassador Milton speak the truth. Back in the United States, Milton had spoken the truth and was therefore turned against because it was not what the government wanted to hear. So, when he had the opportunity to deliver the truth again in San Lorenzo, he seized it. These events in the novel are synonymous with events taking place in the U.S. during this time. Moreover, if you decided to speak out against the majority, you would have also been shunned.
So a manual recount was started. Bush decided to take the case to the Federal Supreme Court. Bush argued that the recount that was currently taking place was unconstitutional because it violated the equal protection clause of the fourteenth amendment. The court ruled 5 - 4 in favor of Bush and the manual recount was stopped. The votes that had been counted had closed the gap
There would have been no black market to sell him the gun either, as the retailers would have been forced to comply with more restrictions. These restrictions would have lessened the bridge that divides American society. No Ferguson police officer would have ever had to fear for his life when faced with the daunting decision of firing his
