Congress reiterated in Section 3(c)(1)(D)(ii) of FIFRA that EPA should make administrative decisions about how much money these manufacturers would get for damages from loss of their trade secrets. Union Carbide sued because they felt that the decisions should be made by the judicial court, not an administrative agency. The U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York held that the claims challenging the arbitration provisions were ripe for decision and that those provisions violated Article III. Standing was approved for all appellants, who took a direct appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court. Facts: Section 3(c)(1)(D)(ii) of FIFRA authorizes EPA to consider certain previously submitted data only if the "follow-on" and registrant has offered to compensate the original registrant for use of the data.
Recent activity in the Bush administration has led to widespread criticism on how the government perceives torture. Torture is a word that carries negative connotation in nearly every part of its usage. Alan Dershowitz states in his article, “Is There a Torturous Road to Justice?” that if the government is going to practice such methods of interrogation, they should not hide it from the public, but rather make it legal in a way that allows for the protection of our nation. His stance on the subject is made clear by his introduction of various solutions to the problem and tries to convince his audience of their power. He focuses on interpretations of the constitution and assumes that torture will happen regardless of what the government says.
The FCC is the rules and regulations for what is being played on television and the radio. The FCC regulates shows to air profound programs and obscene language during certain hours of the day on network television. It is unlawful to show or say certain things during the day without a radio station or television network being fined. But throughout the years, the regulations on some programs during the day have allowed more graphic language and sexuality during their programs. Even though they are being fazed out on television, soap operas are prime example of shows that push the envelope.
DBQ: The Alien and Sedition Acts "Although the Alien and Sedition Acts, created in 1798, spurred great dispute, they were created under constitutional guidelines. The acts helped to protect the government of the United States from potential threat." Using the documents and your knowledge of the period, evaluate this statement. Document A Source: Thomas Jefferson, Draft of Kentucky Resolutions, 1798. Although Congress passed for bills known as the Alien and Sedition Acts in 1798 intending to help protect the government of the united states from potential threats, they did not truly protect Americans from their foreign enemies.
To this day society continues to be censored from ideas by the government and companies that impact our ways of life and learning. In the novel Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradbury uses a collection of ideas to give the illusion of censorship in their society. In Fahrenheit 451, Bradbury uses this quote to furthermore explain the consequences of owning censored items such as books. “Monday burn Millay, Wednesday
On the face of it, the containment of demonstrators would appear to be a clear breach of Art 5, however the courts have now focused on the exceptional circumstances in which the state will have lawful justification to employ the tactic. Until the convention was received into domestic law, domestic law continued to afford virtually no recognition to rights to meet or march. Now under Section 6 of HRA, those seeking to exercise rights of protest and assembly can rely on Articles 10 and 11 of the Convention and any other relevant right, against public authorities, in particular the police. The Court has repeatedly asserted that freedom of expression, ‘’constitutes one of the essential foundations of a democratic society’’ that exceptions to it ‘’must be narrowly interpreted and the necessity for any restrictions, convincingly established.’’1 However the Commission has been readily satisfied that decisions of the national authorities to adopt quite far reaching measures, including complete bans in order to prevent disorder are within their margin of appriation.2 The court has also found ‘’the margin of appreciation’’ extends in particular to the choice of the reasonable and appropriate means to be used by the authority to ensure that lawful manifestations take place peacefully.3 When looking at lawful manifestations they must bear in mind the common law doctrine of breach of the peace. The leading case is Howell4 in which it
Branches of Government Jefferson said it best, “My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government” (The Thomas Jefferson Foundation, Inc., 1996-2012, para. 1). After the ultimate control while under rule of the crown, the founding fathers sought to create not only a government that provided for rights and liberties of the people, but also to ensure that government interaction and authority was spread amongst various branches. This distribution of power would provide checks and balances to guarantee reduced influence, while allowing each section to operate independently. However, agreement of each party would be problematic to achieve when needing to enact new laws and regulations.
SimilarThe Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 (TCPA) was created to regulate solicitors to provide the identity of their business and contact information; and, to eliminate nuisance telephone calls (http://transition.fcc.gov/cgb/policy/TCPA-Rules.pdf). Congress passed the law to restrict solicitors by the means of using automated generated calls throughout the day and night and continuously calling consumers despite notification to stop calling. The act generated the Do Not Call Implementation Act of 2003 which offers multiple regulations of solicitors and limits random solicitation. The act was established to curb unwanted calls to consumers who felt harassed by telemarketing tactics. The act also restricts solicitation by facsimile and text messaging.
The federal government has deemed it necessary to investigate anyone that seems in any way suspicious in the way of terrorism. This extends from illegal search and seizure to allowing any future cell phone or computer usage to be watched without a new warrant. Civil liberties activists claim that this, again, is an infringement on Constitutional rights while others claim this is a necessary infringement to protect our communities and people. Another issue with the expansion of the executive branch is the cooperation on a local, state, and federal level. The argument is that police are too involved in the legal aspects of collecting evidence, while intelligence agents are too uninvolved.
“The right to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed.” This statement, clearly written, was made by our founding fathers to protect our rights as Americans in the year 1791. Today, our right to keep and bear arms is under attack by liberals and politicians. However clear the second amendment may be, people today still try to contest this constitutional right and assert that Americans should not own guns, or that restraints must be put on those that choose to exercise their constitutional right to bear arms. Gun control is an unnecessary evil because guns provide the American people a means of defending themselves against those who are intent on harming you, the fact that beginning guns will not keep them out of criminal hands, and that guns
