When the BTT manager sent the e-mail to Chou, he mentioned the terms of a distribution agreement, but it does not make the e-mail a contract, as neither party signed it. Only an oral agreement was reached. Without a legally binding draft and the signature of both parties present, a contract did not exist so nothing can be. What role does the statute of frauds play in this contract? Under the UCC, the statute of fraud applies to a contract for the sales of goods in excess of $500.
But within hours of the U.S. Supreme Court’s denial of certiorari on October 1, 1990, Texas v. Brandley, 498 U.S. 817 (1990), dropped all charges. A few months later, Brandley was ordained as a Baptist minister, and a few months after that he was married. The officials involved in the case were not disciplined, nor did they apologize. Prosecutors in the case still insist they convicted the right
Unit 5 Assignment 1-28-08 ASSIGNMENT 10 Citation: Atlantic Beach Casino, Inc. v. Edward T. Marenzoni, 749 F. Supp. 38 (D.R.I. 1990) Parties: Atlantic Beach Casino, Inc., Plaintiff-Appellant Edward T. Marenzoni, Defendant-Appelle Facts: Atlantic Beach Casino contracted to represent 2 Live Crew, and the Westerly Town Council is taking steps to prevent the group from playing at the scheduled concert. The town council wished to review and decide in advance whether the performance will go forward (a prior restraint), and they failed to allege sufficient harm. The Westerly licensing ordinances do not even approach the necessary level of specificity constitutionally mandated, and the plaintiffs have a high likelihood of success.
Barabin sued and was awarded $10,200,000 in which AstenJohnson appealed. AstenJohnson appealed on ground that Barabin’s expert Dr. Cohen credentials weren’t extremely credible. Also the district court did not hold a Daubert hearing to determine if Cohen was qualified and they allowed the jury to determine if Cohen’s testimony was credible. Procedural History: AstenJohnson appealed the District court’s ruling and so The United States Court of Appeals; Ninth Circuit discovered that the district court failed to assess the scientific methodologies that Dr. Cohen applied. The Ninth Circuit stated that since the district court allowed for the jury without making any determinations regarding Dr. Cohen’s accusations, the court constituted an abuse of discretion requiring a new trial.

In one decision, the Court held that regulations that deprive a person of all ability to develop or utilize his or her property for any economic purposes goes too far and requires just compensation. Another line of Supreme Court cases establishes that if the government effects a permanent physical invasion of the person's property, for example by requiring the owner to allow public access to the property, this constitutes a taking. Absent one of these two circumstances, however, the Court has said that the question whether a regulation goes too far is a contextual, ad hoc determination that involves the weighing of a number of factors. Foremost among these factors is the magnitude of the regulation's economic impact and the degree to which it interferes with legitimate property interests. A particularly important issue that has been raised is whether a person who acquires property after the institution of the regulatory regime should have any claim whatsoever.
From a legal perspective I believe that there are several court cases that support our legal position. The first one in the Supreme Court ruling in the case of Trans World Airlines vs. Hardison et al., 1977 that stated that an employer does not have to provide days off to employees to respect their religious holidays if it creates an undue hardship on the employer. The concern for our company is would the court consider a schedule request and undue hardship in this case. A second case that seems at face value to back our position is Grube vs. Lau Industries, 2001. In this case the court ruled that changing an employee’s work hours does not constitute constructive discharge under Title VII.
There is no reasonable government interest that validates the burden the law imposes on voters. “In Philadelphia, for instance, almost one-fifth of the registered voters may not have an acceptable form of identification to vote on Election Day. Statewide, almost one-tenth may not.” In response to News21, Pennsylvania officials reported no cases of Election Day voter-impersonation fraud since 2000. “This law is a solution solving a problem that does not exist,” said Democratic state Sen. Vincent Hughes. “Hughes called the law partisan and, echoing Turzai, said its purpose is “to elect Mitt Romney.” Voter ID Laws have become a negative aspect to our country’s election process.
These two steps are , “(1) whethere the individual “exhibited an actual (subjective) expectation of privacy”; (2) whether the expectation is “one that society is prepare to recognize as reasonable.”“( Fordham, p.580). But this is not an effective way to determine if the fourth amendment was violate. The critical question is where we should impose on the citizens the risk of electronic listeners without a warrant. Another is the installation of beepers, this according to Justice Stevens “constituted as a seizure, which the Court has defined as “ some meaningful
