    We are taught that the courts and the Supreme Courts, in particular, are charged with interpreting the Constitution and the laws of the Unites States.

Theory and reality differ for at least four reasons, the Supreme Court sometimes makes decisions on excruciantingly detailed matters that have almost no appliciablility to most law enforcement officers most of the time.

    Due process sometimes referred to as the due process clause. The clause “Prohibits state and local governments from depriving persons of life, liberty, or property without certain steps being taken to ensure fairness.” (ILL 2012) Due process demands that the justice system considers the facts of the case. Law agent’s primary focus is from the beginning of the arrest, filing, questioning, and handling the case to ensure fundamentals of fairness under the law. Due process model stretches back to early 1200 century to protect defendant’s rights. “Thomas Jefferson set forth the rationale for the establishment of government in a society: to secure the fundamental, inherent, and preexisting rights of the people.”…

    Federal Jurisdiction

    • 868 Words

    In this paper I will discuss a case involving Henry, a resident of Nevada, who sued Adam, a resident of Utah in the Federal Court in California. Henry sought $60,000 damages for personal injuries arising from an automobile accident that occurred in Los Angeles, California. I will answer the following questions about this case. Does the Federal Court have jurisdiction? What rules of procedure will the court use? Why? And what rules of substantive law will the court use? One of the most essential questions of law is whether a given court has jurisdiction to preside over a given case. Jurisdiction means the power to hear a case. Many courts have limited jurisdictions or limited powers, meaning they can only hear certain types of cases. “An example of this type of limited power is “municipal courts that are limited to city’s residents” (Morgan et al., 2010, p. 29). Any court owns jurisdiction over matters only to the degree granted to it by the Constitution, or legislation of the authority on behalf of which it functions. The question of whether a given court has the power to determine a jurisdictional question is itself, in my opinion a jurisdictional question.…

    “Criminal procedure is the branch of American constitutional law concerned with the state’s power to maintain an orderly society and the rights of citizens and residents to live in freedom from undue government interference with their liberty” (Zalman, 2008, p. 4). The Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, Eighth, and Fourteenth amendments are significant in studying criminal procedure. In criminal justice, the criminal procedure is important because it deals with the conflict between order and liberty directly. To understand the friction between order and liberty, Herbert Packer studied the competing values that underlie the constitutional order through the Due Process Model and Crime Control model. Both of these models have similarities as well as differences on shaping criminal procedure policy. Herbert Packer states, “One is not “good” and the other “bad”; both models embrace constitutional values that are necessary to the kind of society in which we wish to live” (Zalman, 2008, p. 5).…
