  • Judge Kaddos Case Study

    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.

  • Personal Narrative Essay On My Pursuer

    I hear the sound of clinks grow as my pursuer closes the distance. I can feel the piercing blue eyes bore into my back.

  • I Want To Be A Musical Theatre Pursuer

    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…

  • Theme Of Ambition In The Great Gatsby

    "There are only the pursued, the pursuing, the busy and the tired" To what extent does this sum up the novel?

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…

    along with the occasional lonely car rolling past the fields.

    all the circumstances of the case’.
