Facts: Alton Lemon took David Kurtzman to court with the support of a number of interest groups including the Pennsylvania Civil liberties union and the NAACP in hopes the court would find a law in Pennsylvania unconstitutional. This said law, the Nonpublic Elementary and secondary education act, had allowed Kurtzman to “purchase” educational services for private schools, and could use tax money to reimburse private school for the cost of salaries as well as books and supplies. The state agreed to provide funding as long as the money went towards secular expenses, meaning the books and supplies that were meant for teaching the same courses that were taught in public schools. In order to receive money, there had to be records of secular expenses and non secular expenses. This act began to be able to be put to use in July of 1968. Ultimately, “96% of the nonpublic school students attended religious schools, primarily roman catholic”(Epstein. Walker 147). In Rhode Island, there was a similar law, the Rhode Island Salary Supplement Act, where 15% of the teachers salaries were funded to contribute to private schools, as long as no religious classes were taught. It turned out though that 95% of the
Contracts are legally enforceable promises. There are two requirements for contract formation: agreement and consideration. An agreement involves a valid offer being made by an offeror to an offeree and said offer being validly accepted by the offeree and communicated to the offeror. The second requirement is consideration, meaning the two parties exchange something of legal value. Contracts serve the purpose of ensuring stability, predictability, and certainty, as well as deterring defection, in business dealings. The objective theory of contract law states that only the language of the contract should be considered in contract interpretation. This theory ignores entirely the intent of the parties. However, contract law is largely
The Supreme Court requires that waiver in criminal proceedings be made voluntarily. The Fourth Amendment right against search and seizure may be waived voluntarily when there is a showing of consent. The Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination requires that waiver (in the context of confessions) must be made voluntarily. In Miranda v. Arizona, the Supreme Court made it clear that the voluntariness of the waiver of the Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination was a fundamental concern central to the creation of Miranda Warnings. There, the Court was concerned about the coercive effect of interrogation and sought to protect individuals from the coercion by requiring the iteration of Miranda Warnings in order to establish
“Democracy in America is over” (Grayson). The Supreme Court’s decision in favor of Citizens United leads us further down a path that will leave everyday citizens disenfranchised and wealthy, private interests more powerful than ever. The case was appealed to the Supreme Court by Citizens United after lower courts declared their film, “Hillary”, illegal under the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act. It was considered independent spending on what is essentially political propaganda attacking Hillary Clinton and spending falling into this category made within 30 days of an election is illegal under the BCRA. Citizens United claimed that the part of the law they were said to be in violation of was unconstitutional and limited their free speech and that they were not in violation anyway, since their advertising was not done by direct

According to case ASIC v Rich MSWSC 85, chairman’s skills and experience are regarded as responsibilities of chairman. According to s180(1)(b), if they occupied the office held by and had the same responsibilities within the corporation as the officer or Director, they had the same responsibilities within the corporation as, the directors or officer. Therefore, they need to exercise their power and fulfill their duty under the statutory duty of care s 180(1). Anton did not inquire the relationship between Ralph and Mattella even though he suspected their relationship which means he had breached his duty of care and diligence which is similar to the case of Westpac Banking Corporation v Bell Group Ltd (2012) WASCA 157.Furthermore he breached s181 because he agreed to Ralph’s proposal of issuing the shares to contravene the law to keep his job, this relates to ASIC v Sydney Investment House Equities Pty Ltd (2008) NSWSC
Paul on the other hand, all the power of the company. When Mavis died, she left her three “B” shares for her sons which gave them the voting rights in the company. Soon, Paul developed friendship with Cleo. He issued a special category of shares for Cleo that allowed her to have complete control over the company upon Paul’s death. His determination unquestionably neglects the voting rights of his sons in the company as they would attenuate upon his death and all the decision making power will go to Cleo who neither has the experience nor the qualifications in the manufacturing industry. With such a decision Paul is breaching the fiduciary and statutory duties under section 181(1) of the Corporations Act as he is not exercising his duties in good faith and for a proper purpose.
