William Cooper was a factory worker during the Industrial Revolution, whose life was altered for the worse because of his work situation. William Cooper’s testimony to the Sadler Commission from Wiesner’s book, is a great example of how bad workers during the Industrial Revolution had it. This interview begins with
When it comes to the Alton Logan case there is an automatic red flag thrown up on the attorneys decision to remain silent and a lot of critical comments are being thrown toward the attorneys because most of us find this silence by the attorneys to be unacceptable and very unmoral. When we start to read the details of this case we could easily begin saying that the two lawyers who represented Andrew Wislon should have spoke up and that saving an innocent man was more important than the attorney-client privilege law but then again it is easy to argue that the lawyers did the right thing by not breaking the attorney- client privilege law and if you’re willing to keep an open mind and try and see where these two lawyers are coming from in this moral decision they made, you might be swayed a different direction or at least understand the attorneys decision a little

Case Study: An Unmanageable Case Management Quandary The United States judicial system which includes all local, state and federal courts is one of the most complex systems in the world. Criminal, civil and probate cases are among the few types of cases heard daily. Court administrators are under constant pressure to ensure that defendant’s rights are protected, hearings are calendared and that resolution is acquired in a timely manner. Increases in filings in the criminal and civil divisions along with budgetary constraints have required court administrators to adopt new case management methods. In the instance of the “Unmanageable Case Management Quandary” presented in Justice Administration by Kenneth Peak, court administrators are experiencing high case loads, serious backlog and extended resolution periods.

By 1892 the Union Members and most of the other workers held a meeting due to some issues that the Owners were trying to change. There were about 800 out of 3800 workers that were in the Labor Union, and they called it the
In the story there are many instances in which Bartleby refuses to do as instructed by the lawyer his explorer. I feel sympathy for the lawyer because it must be hard to deal with an insubordinate good worker. Bartleby does his work that he wants to do well. The lawyer is in a tight spot because he has two other copiers Turkey and Nippers who were employed before Bartleby and hear him disrespect the lawyer.

A defendant must be represented; however, they do not have the right to choose which counsel they will receive. The attorney must be knowledgeable and competent, but there cannot be any preferential treatment of one lawyer over another based on reputation or perceived abilities of counsel. As long as the attorney has proven to be effective in representing the case, the defendant must be represented by them. Defendants may be able to show just cause about preferring to self-represent, but again, they must show a clear understanding in making the decision to refuse counsel for their case (Tomkovicz, 2002). There are many other limitations of right to counsel, they include the period that is referred to as “noncritical stages”.
