    I began my Friday by going to Judge Kaddo to see the new asbestos case. Before that, I did go by Judge Lippitt’s court room. Judge Lippitt had told me to come back to observe the motions in limine of the case. Judge Kaddo’s trial was just starting, but it looked like he had to call downtown if he could proceed. Judge Kaddo started reading the preliminary instructions to the Jurors. I looked at the jury because I was here the first day they brought the first batch in and wanted to see if I recognized anyone. I only recognized one of the jurors I remembered him because he said he had trouble with hearing. Everyone else in the Jury looked new and were probably brought in at a later time. I went to Judge Lippitt’s courtroom to see what the new trial was going to be about. The good thing about motions in limine is, I get to hear a summary of the trial before it starts. Additionally, motions in limine allows me to see what the jurors do not. Knowing extra details that the jurors have no knowledge of does not seem to make much of a difference when it comes my opinion on a ruling. This case involved the defense counsel which consisted of 3 lawyers 2 representing a gym, 1 representing the exercise machine company. The plaintiffs counsel was just 1 attorney. One of the attorneys on the was new, he was the one representing the exercise machine company. The first motion was brought up by the plaintiff councilor, asking for a release form to be removed from exhibits. Plaintiffs…

    In the Apology the concept of “pursuer” death and “pursuer” wickedness is introduced after Socrates is handed his sentence in his trial. Socrates associates the “pursuer” wickedness with all the people that voted against him in his trial, along with his accusers. Socrates believes that it is more difficult to outrun the “pursuer” wickedness than it is to outrun the “pursuer” death but, Socrates explicitly states that he would rather be outrun by the pursuer of death, than be outrun by the…

    I hear the sound of clinks grow as my pursuer closes the distance. I can feel the piercing blue eyes bore into my back. As the sound of the clinking grows, I catch a glimpse of leopard fur in my peripheral vision. Nails dig in to my back and the leopard fur engulfs me as I turn to face my pursuer. When I am released, I am face to face with my grandmother, Mema, looking the same as I have always remembered. Janice Grattidge is a commanding presence that rarely goes unnoticed. Wig askew, a…

    It appears that no matter what, dreams are always mocked: it’s as though just having a dream warrants judgement or a remark from those who doubt your abilities or the dream itself. The only aspirations accepted by others are the ones deemed ‘plausible’, whatever that means. If one’s goal is ‘reachable’ there’s no need to put them down for it, right? If one’s goal is easily obtainable then they’ll ‘win’. “Everybody loves a winner,” afterall. Being a musical theatre pursuer, especially, will get…

    "There are only the pursued, the pursuing, the busy and the tired" To what extent does this sum up the novel? In 'The Great Gatsby', Fitzgerald made all his characters with four predominate behaviours; "the pursued, the pursuing, the busy, and the tired". Some may fall under only one of these groups, where as the others may belong in all of them. This is not only a good summary of the novel but also of people's life in general during the 1920s. Throughout the novel, there are characters who are…

    "The Black Cat" is one of Edgar Allan Poe's most paramount stories. Edgar Allan Poe has for some time been truly outstanding in my own Parthenon for writing. My most loved story of his was until I re-acclimated myself with "The Black Cat", was its buddy in similitudes, "The Tell-Tale Heart." For this situation, I locate the previous of these two stories that is "The Black Cat", to fill a more instrumental need in the trim of youthful personalities. The reason I like the story is that the…

    all the circumstances of the case’. This shows that if a pursuer establishes a prima facie case that is unchallenged by evidence to the contrary, they have reached the standard of proof to satisfy the evidential burden. Although it may be implied that the law is clear, problems have arisen in the civil context when determining the appropriate standard that either have dimensions of criminal activity. The rule in all civil actions the standard of proof required is always the balance of…

    along with the occasional lonely car rolling past the fields. The travelers were overjoyed by their newfound discovery of an escape route, but the feelings soon faded, as there was a rather large obstacle in their path. A long, deep, foreboding ditch ran along the side of the field, blocking anything from running onto the street. There was little time to figure out a solution, as their pursuers were only a few feet behind. In a split-second decision, the eldest traveler hoisted the other in the…
