The Argument For The Bench Trial

- Most countries in the world today do not use juries, and only a small percentage of cases in the United States are decided by juries. So it has been proven successful and holding trials without juries are certainly a possibility for our future. In may in fact be in society’s best interest to change or rather improve a system that is outdated and doesn’t always serve the people justice. A person has a right to choose between a jury of his peers of a bench (judge only) trial. It’s likely that citizens may prefer a jury trial as they may feel that pool of random citizens may be less critical or harsh than a judge, but in all honesty, if we’re talking about fairness, a judge who is an informed a...   [tags: Jury, Jury trial, Bench trial, Court]

My View Of The Bench Swing

- My neighborhood is pretty quiet, so when it is nice outside I go to the tennis courts and do yoga. The tennis courts are never occupied so I have the freedom to go anywhere I want. I never actually go onto the courts but right outside them in the grass. To the left sits a grassy field filled with weeds and wild flowers, a truly beautiful sight. Behind the small field there is a thin layer of trees to separate my neighborhood from the next. Peeking through the trees is a silver fence, which encloses a backyard that is always filled with dogs....   [tags: Thought, Mind, Sky, Sequoiadendron]

If this Bench Could Talk

- Lime green grass struck my ankles like needles pinching my skin, it crawled up the brown old wooden bench I was situated on. Screaming children seemed to move rapidly from the left corner of my eye to the other. Children ran after a black and white squared ball like birds flying in a flock. Jerseys in two different shades seemed to dominate the green patch of grass that was spread widely. This was the park located a couple of blocks away from my house.

Peter's Park Bench

- The Peter’s Park bench was made of very sad, decaying wood; the kind you’d imagine was once painted a rich shade of mahogany before it had begun collecting termites, bird’s droppings, clumps of bubble gum and unoriginal graffiti. To the untrained eye, it appeared to be a crooked, splintery seat you’d dare not place your bottom on in fear of it collapsing beneath you, or of spiking yourself with old, rusty nails, or even in the best interest of your hygiene. Of course I was just as ignorant as the rest, in absolute disbelief that the ancient, weathered hunk of rotting timber could ever be anything more than just that....   [tags: short story]

The Court Of The Kings Bench For A Writ Of Habeas Corpus

- The lack of money was a huge issue for the crown and parliament in the years 1625-1649 and is one of the reasons the two had such a dysfunctional relationship.

Consequently around 76 gentlemen were imprisoned for refusal to pay, however 5 imprisoned knights applied to the court of the kings bench for a writ of habeas corpus (meaning king had to justify imprisonment)....   [tags: Charles I of England, English Civil War]
