Law case study
As laid out in both Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and the Maryland Rules, for a class to be certified, the requirements are that;
· The class should have numerous members such that it would be impractical, to sue or be sued one by one. In such a case, it would take only one to act as a representative for all. The suggested number for probable class action is 40. Numerosity is determined based on the total number of customers/clients/members/employees the defendant serves and the resources that would be needed by all the involved parties to run all the cases to completion. Ordinarily, for a case that doesn’t satisfy the numerosity requirement, and the “others” can be included as interested parties.
· The law questions involved or the facts presentable ought to be common to the entire persons involved in the class. Commonality requirement means that the claims or….
Carriers are thought to be a severe and current hazard to the well-being of others if they engage frequently in actions that have been revealed to convey the disease, if they designate a casual discount for the diffusion of the disease to others, or if they show they will engage in the future in actions that have been revealed to transmit the disease (Sexually Transmitted Diseases Fact Sheet, 2006).

State, Law, and Social Policy
The issues at stake are related to how law and public policy affect the lives of women. The main arguments are that laws reflect social norms related to gender. Laws then reinforce social norms, including those that are patriarchal and sexist in nature. The author refers to specific legal cases and issues that support the ideas, and also refers to secondary analyses.
The strengths of this lesson have been to illustrate the complex interface between social norms and the law. It is largely a reflexive relationship, as one impacts the other. The weakness of this lesson is knowing how to channel frustration regarding the application of the law to the lives of individuals.
As part of a critical reflection, it is possible to connect the concepts in this chapter with historical events and landmark legal battles like Roe v. Wade. It is easy to see how religious conservatives….
Intrpreting Existing State Law as egards Same Sex Marriages
Iowa, a state that is quickly recognized by most people as one of the most conservative states in the union, but which surprised 2008 election pundits, and perhaps even the candidates themselves when Iowa's voters sealed Barak Obama's bid for the Democratic party nomination and then supported him in the subsequent presidential; has reminded us that their support of Obama might have been a young voter turnout, 60's nostalgia, or any other number of factors, but that the state remains a conservative stronghold. In last week's elections, Iowa, according to an article in USA Today (Friday, November 5, 8A), Iowa voters voted out three incumbent state Supreme Court justice for lending a liberal interpretation to Iowa's marriage law (8A). The justices, three of the state's seven; voted concurrence with their other four colleagues -- who were not up for re-election -- to….
Law Enforcement and Computer-Based Crime
Before beginning any discussion regarding the consequences of employee monitoring, it is crucial to first develop a working knowledge of precisely what this blanket term actually entails. Simply put, employee monitoring is deliberate surveillance by an employer which is used to track various behaviors, such as a worker's visitation rate to certain websites, as well as to transcribe and archive written correspondence in the form of emails while continuously observing their actions. It is the responsibility of each employer to decide where their business will lie within the gamut of employee monitoring philosophies, with many companies simply banning visitation of "cyberloafing" sites such as Twitter and Facebook while others methodically scan and document each touch of a workplace keyboard. While there are literally hundreds of types of employee monitoring available to businesses, from transparent voluntary programs to the most invasive reconnaissance campaigns, almost all major American….

Any trade that crosses state lines or involves citizens from different state is considered interstate commerce. The Commerce Clause was considered an important power in the original drafting of the Constitution due to the controversies that were created in trading relationships between the states under the Articles of Confederation. As the nation has increased in size and economic activity, the application of the Commerce Clause has become increasingly more important. The landmark case of Marbury v. Madison established the power of the U.S. Supreme Court to interpret the application of the Commerce Clause.

Employment and Discrimination
There are several laws that fall into the category of civil rights laws. The base law is the Civil ights Act of 1964, in particular Title VII. This clause established the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and set out guidelines for equality in employment, providing protections on the basis of race, ethnicity, gender, color, religion or national origin (EEOC, 2013). Since the passage of the Civil ight Act the 1970s saw the passage of other acts that extended the protections of the CA. These extensions applied to the disabled (Americans with Disabilities Act), on the….

The Various Types of JurisdictionsToday, the concept of jurisdiction is frequently heard with respect to high-profile criminal cases where the legal stakes are high. Jurisdiction, though, is also a relevant and essential aspect of the legal system for all types of legal cases since it relates to the courts authority to hear and decide on specific legal issues or controversies and, in turn, award damages or other types of relief as appropriate. Drawing on Carper\\\'s Understanding the Law by McKinsey and Burke (2023), the purpose of this paper is to examine the different forms of jurisdiction, the political boundaries of state and federal courts, jurisdiction over subject matter, and the challenges of determining jurisdiction in the context of the Internet. Finally, the paper provides a summary of the findings that emerged from the research and important points in the conclusion.What Is Jurisdiction?According to the definition provided by McKinsey and Burke….
Add to this confusion the growing prevalence of telecommuters and the issues of the FLSA become even more complicated. Of course some telecommuting positions fall into the exempt category, and therefore are not subject to overtime pay, however some do. Due to the freedom to engage in 'private pursuits', employers may monitor when a virtual employee logs onto his or her computer and may require that he or she get permission before working overtime (Gabel & Mansfield 2003, 316). Only by fully understanding the FLSA and the legislation that has evolved from its implementation, can Human Resource professionals be certain to obey the regulations and not compromise their organization.
In addition to the monitoring of ever-changing compensation laws, Human Resource professionals must also be well versed in discrimination legislation as well. The Civil Rights Act of 1964, one of them of the most important pieces of discrimination legislation created, was originally….

IGHTS VS. NATIONAL LAWS
National laws formulated and implemented by the federal government have often been criticized for their centralizing effect and for restraining/restricting the power of state laws. In a republican form of government, state laws have enormous significance as this form of government allows "people . . . To pass their own laws in virtue of the legislative power reposed in representative bodies, whose legitimate acts may be said to be those of the people themselves."  Deborah Merritt, Ohio State University law professor, has often been cited in Court rulings for her discussion of relationship between federal and state laws. Merritt notes that "since at least the eighteenth century, political thinkers have stressed that republican government is one in which the people control their rulers." .
United States is a prime example of this form of government since the Constitution allows states to make its own local laws….

branches within the law enforcement field. All these branches have a range of jurisdictions but have a common purpose of enforcing laws that have been passed by legislatures and the protection of the American citizens and those who live within the American borders. There are different law enforcement agents everywhere and they are interested in what one does, the particular agents present depend on ones location and what they are doing. This paper will look at three law enforcement branches; local, state and federal law enforcement. It will look at what thee three entail and how they differ in terms of jurisdiction and authority.
At the local enforcement agencies, the commonplace and frequently experienced law enforcement agency are municipal police officers. These police officers represent villages, towns and cities. A striking difference between these local officers and those found within state and federal level is that they offer the first….

17th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was ratified in 1913. It altered the way in which Senators of the Congress were elected. Previously, under Article 1 of the Constitution, it was the state legislature's responsibility to elect senators to Congress. ith the 17th Amendment, however, the voting power was placed directly into the hands of the public. The Amendment also provided a way for states to allow governors to fill vacancies in their state's appointed seats in Congress by temporarily appointing a senator until a time in which a special election could be conducted.
The text of the Amendment states specifically that "two Senators from each State, elected by the people thereof, for six years" shall be the manner in which senators are now voted into office. This effectively made the process of electing senators more democratic and less representational, in the sense that that the voting public had the power….
Undocumented Immigrants in Gainesville
The city of Gainesville has a population of about 54,000 and of these, approximately 3,200 are illegal aliens. The law enforcement community in this city is charged with protecting these undocumented aliens on the one hand and enforcing illegal immigrant laws on the other. To the extent that undocumented residents are afraid that the police will enforce the latter may be the extent to which they are discouraged from seeking help from the law enforcement community when they need it, exacerbating existing crime levels. Conversely, the extent to which law enforcement authorities fail to enforce illegal immigration laws may be the extent to which they are viewed as being malfeasant in the prosecution of their official duties. To determine the optimal course of action for law enforcement authorities faced with these conflicting priorities, this paper reviews the relevant literature including a discussion of so-called "sanctuary cities" and….
