The trial judge, McLelland J, held that the joint tenancy had not been severed. The Court of Appeal upheld the trial judge’s decision, applying the principles set down in Milroy v Lord and followed in later decisions, stating that the trustee had obtained no legal or equitable interest in the land.

The High Court did not consider the power of the donor to recall the gift to be strictly relevant to the issue of whether she had done everything necessary to effect a transfer of legal title. This is also not particularly relevant either as Percy has not asked for the gift to be returned.
does not constitute a court order sufficient to override the presumption of paternity. Likewise, we find that failure on the part of Darlene Romer to respond to a request for admission under Civil Rule 36 admitting that Richard Romer is not the biological father of R.M., does not constitute clear and convincing evidence to rebut paternity, in the opposite, the superior court finding that “the plaintiff is not the father of R.M. and owes no support” is clearly erroneous because it makes no mention of the standard of proof it used as opposed to that set out in AS 25.20.050 Legitimation by subsequent marriage, acknowledgment in writing, or
• Paula has repeatedly asked Sam to stop and has made her uncomfortable ness known. Sexual Harassment is covered under Title VII of the civil rights act of 1964. Since the act covers race, color, religion, sex or national origin, It can be sited by Paula in a law suit for sexual harassment.

Sam has given Paula plenty of evidence to claim hostile work environment by not accepting his sexual advances and the immediate negative response by Sam.
If her replacement was a female Teddy’s could use that to show that they are not discriminating towards whom they are hiring and the policy is in the effect. In any case of discrimination and sexual harassment zero-tolerance will be enforced.

McCarty failed to prove that negligence was the cause in this case.
If you have nothing to hide, and you’re not planning anything illegal, none of the new security measures should matter. The patriot act states that officials can now look at emails, phone calls, text messages, etc, so my opponent may say that this is a violation to personal freedom, but when you think about it, it really doesn’t matter. Who cares if a random official you will most likely never meet reads an email you sent to your parent? Even then, they wouldn’t even consider looking through any of those unless they felt they had a valid
