In this post, you will find great Legal Quotes from famous people, such as Kenneth Clarke, Miranda Devine, Jeremy Stoppelman, Walter Kirn, J. M. Coetzee. You can learn and implement many lessons from these quotes.
You cannot grant amnesty. If the American people see us granting amnesty they will never again believe in legal immigration. They will never again support it, and that’s wrong for our country, bad for our future.
We should make it as easy as possible to be able to get a legal work visa – not citizenship, not a greencard. Just a work visa, with a background check and a Social Security card so that applicable taxes would get paid.
If my own country is subverting the rule of law and sending its own citizens, its military, into harm‘s way on the basis of lies and propaganda, I would argue that being a patriot is calling out those lies and saying, ‘No, you don’t send our military into harm’s way with no legal justification.’
If they lose their legal basis for owning a .cn domain, google.cn would cease to exist, or if it continued to exist, it would be illegal, and doing anything blatantly illegal in China puts their employees at seriousrisk.
These are people – I’m for immigration – legal immigration. I’ve been an immigration attorney. But people who have come to our country and violated laws, we should not be providingfullhealth careservices.
I think it’s going to end up a lot like the Internet. Some countries try to regulate the Internet – bitcoin will be very much like that. It will be legal, and there will be some countries with currency control.
Legal abortion will never rest easy on this nation’s conscience.
Unless you have a perception of who you are as a lawyer, you will never be at ease in dealing with legal matters, clients, or courts. But if you know who you are and why you’re there, all you need is the expertise and the information.
The U.S. immigration system is the mostgenerous in the world, providing each year more green cards for legal permanent residence with a clear path to full citizenship than all the rest of the nations of the world combined.
Civil society must be strengthened to helpraiseawareness among people living with HIV, and those at risk, of their rights, and to ensure they have access to legal services and redress through the courts.
The real challenge to upholding India‘s freedoms is how patchy and individual-driven it is when it comes to the judiciary. The system is so arranged that instead of legal precedent and case law setting the template for the court’s interventions, the idea of justice is guided by what Judge A or Judge B may think.
When I was a prosecutor in Kansas City, my job was to fight for justice and safety for all citizens in my community. Equal access to justice under the law is an American value embedded in the fabric of our legal and political system – the idea that anybody, powerful or not, can have their day in court.
Felons are typically stripped of the very rights supposedly won in the civil rights movement, including the right to vote, the right to serve on juries, and the right to be free of legal discrimination in employment, housing, access to education, and public benefits. They’re relegated to a permanent undercaste.
Americans have grown a great deal more realistic about lawyers and the law. I think that’s all for the good. A lot of people will say to you these days, ‘If you are looking for justice, don’t go to a courtroom.’ That’s just a more realistic perspective on what happens in the legal process.
With the support and dedication from employees at every level of the company, we’ve been successful in expanding supplier diversity in many areas, including traditionally challenging areas such as construction services, legal and professional services.
Debra L. Reed
The factualreality is that the vast majority of immigrants – legal and illegal – contribute more to this country than they take out in social services.
Trump started talking about bringing back stop-and-frisk, which was ruledunconstitutional. And as a black man, that was the last thing I wanted to hear. That you will basically pass laws to say that I can be profiled, and it is legal.
I have spent all my life under a Communist regime, and I will tell you that a society without any objective legal scale is a terrible one indeed. But a society with no other scale but the legal one is not quiteworthy of man either.
If a president can enforce a part of a law and delay a part of a law, then does he have a power to not enforce any law he so chooses? If he can allow illegal aliens to freely run across our border, can he force legal citizens out of the country? Where would be the end of his power?
While no Muslim worthy of his name would lose his respect for God, the ProphetMuhammad, and other symbols of Islam, he might well refrain from using legal prosecution or violentreaction to those who do not show the same respect. My basis for this claim is nothing other than the holiest source of Islam, the Quran.
On immigration, Trump needs an articulate policy that aims to secure the border and keep out illegals while letting in skilled legal workers.
In 1973, the Roe v. Wadedecision concluded that women have a constitutionally protected right to safe and legal abortions. That landmark decision wasn’t the beginning of women having abortions; it was the end of women dying from abortions.
Though I had come into the world on 16 November 1922, my official documents show that I was born two days later, on the 18th. It was thanks to this petty fraud that my family escaped from paying the fine for not having registered my birth at the proper legal time.
The simplestformula for the new conception of morality, which is beginning to be opposed to the moral dogma still esteemed by all society, but especially by the women, might be summed up in these words: Love is moral even without legal marriage, but marriage is immoral without love.
In countries with a properly functioning legal system, the mob continues to exist, but it is rarely called upon to mete out capital punishment. The right to take human lifebelongs to the state. Not so in societies where weak courts and poor law enforcement are combined with intractable structural injustices.
I really am not going to get involved in a discussion about the legal position of the Iraq war. I am not the person to do that because I am not sufficiently impartial as a lawyer about this, because it’s a matter that is of interest to the person that I am closest to in the world.
This is sort of typicalHillaryClinton: to do things that are not legal, to say that they are, and then try to cover them up. Hillary Clinton severely chastised other whistleblowers for using Internet channels that were not secure, and yet she herself was doing that with private, high-level State Department information.
Public housing is off-limits to you if you have been convicted of a felony. For a minimum of five years, you are deemed ineligible for public housing once you’ve been branded a felon. Discrimination in private housing market‘s perfectly legal.
If Moses had gone to Harvard Law School and spent three years working on the Hill, he would have written the Ten Commandments with three exceptions and a saving clause.
There’s no legal protection for cyborgs. In 2010, I started the Cyborg Foundation to defend our rights. Cyborgs have been kicked out from severalplaces because they are seen as a possible security threat. I’ve been kicked out from places such as Harrods, Casino Montecarlo, and many supermarkets.
For me, as someone growing up in a working-classsuburb in Stockholm, I couldn’t afford all the music. So back in ’98, ’99, I was really thinking about how I could get all the music and do it in a legal way while at the same time compensating the artist.
I have never wanted a family. I don’t believe in marriage, though I obviously believe it should be legal for everyone who wants to do it. But it is not something I believe in, nor do the characters in my book, nor do any of my friends.
On November 28, 2016, Abdul Razak Ali Artan, an 18-year-old legal resident of the United States whose family was originally from Somalia, used a car to mow down a group of people at the Ohio State University.
The more expansive government is, the more perils people face in daily lives, be it from IRS agents or from child support services, or from other agencies that often have little or no legal restraints on their power.
Class action lawsuits are an important part of our legal system. All citizens should have the right to band together and settle grievances with bigger companies, but that system is broken and it needs fixing.
If we build the legal immigration system better, then they come here, and we’ll have a whole lot less illegal immigration.
I’m for the DREAM Act. It makes so much sense. Following the implementation of the DREAM Act, we’ll have a case study we can point to where we can say that we provided a path to citizenship or legal involvement in the community for these young immigrants, and the sky didn’t fall.
Mrs. Parks‘ act of bravedefiance rocked the foundation of American society and inspired generations of civil rights leaders and created a sense of hope for every American facing legal discrimination in this country.
It is true that I am one of the co-authors of ‘Nudge,’ and I am a behavioraleconomist, but it does not mean that everything we write about in that book is behavioral economics, nor does it mean that my co-author, the distinguished legal scholar Cass Sunstein, is a behavioral economist.
I think people should have the legal right to hurt themselves without fearing that they’re going to get locked up for doing so. But on a personal level, if someone I loved was hurting himself or herself in front of me, I would, of course, try to restrain them.
While I oppose the death penalty as a policy matter, in a legal culture in which we reserve the right to execute people for relatively routine street crimes, it seems quite absurd for the justice system to get squeamish about executing the operational masterminds of Sept. 11.
Judges should decide legal disputes. Judges should not make law.
There is a separation – a very clear separation – between the judiciary, the legal system, and the political system in this country, and that’s why Labor has a problem with the issue of mandatorysentencing as a principle.
We need to stop illegal immigration totally and reduce legal immigration and end the diversity visas policy pushed hard by President Clinton and allowing many persons from the Middle East to come to this country.
Does being practical mean we prop up a legal system that’s unfair, that bears its weight down on black men and black women, and by extension if you are Hispanic or indigenous or poor? Does being practical mean you don’t say to the American people you deserve better than you’re getting? That’s not the practical we want.
So, I’m getting less chips, paying the same amount of money. Is that legal for them to do this?
I contend the state ought to do its thing and provide legal rights for all couples who want to be joined together for life. The church should blessunions that it sees fit to bless, and they should be called marriages.
Foreigners like me have no privacy rights whatsoever. Yet we keep using U.S.-based services all the time, making us a legal target for gathering and storing our private information. Other countries do surveillance as well. But nobody has the global visibility that United States does.
We need to let the referee‘s sole thing be to protect the quarterback and get those late hits out of there. They even have a stat on television that says ‘knockdowns.’ Knockdowns means that you knock him down after he throws the ball. The assumption is, if it’s legal, we’ll make excuses for them.
There will be gay couples; it will exist. It is not very nice that people who are married – who divorce in three seconds – don’t want protection for the others. The legal system should protect everyone, not just the few people who think they are above everybody else because they are married.
Donald Trump is actually the voice of the silent majority, and I think he’s awoken that silent majority. People are very angry, and the people who are the most angry are actually the legal immigrants who see their jobs fleeing.
Professional services industries like finance, consulting, and legal services are, by definition, meta-industries. That is, they serve to help large companies raise money, buy and sell each other, reorganize, implement new systems, conduct complextransactions, and so forth.
I say the law should be blind to race, gender and sexualorientation, just as it claims to be blind to wealth and power. There should be no specially protected groups of any kind, except for children, the severely disabled and the elderly, whose physical frailty demands society’s care.
There are obviously legal restrictions on what you can do on TV in the States, as there are everywhere.
Being a justice. If you love law the way I do… you’re given the job of a lifetime… you’re permitted to address the most important legal questions of the country, and sometimes the world. And in doing so, you make a difference in people’s lives.
I’ve been working at performing for five years now. I’ve been working in Australia and Spain and England. When I was only 15 or 16, 1 was performing in bars; I could have had legal problems, but it’s also the only way to get to know what music is all about.
In terms of the legal matter of creating a contract between two people that’s called marriage, and allowing them to live together with the protection of law, it seems to me is the way we should be moving in this country.
There are two kinds of games in economics. One is the game where people use only legal moves. Then there is the true game, the one like real life, where the strategies and moves people make, some of them contain illegal gains.
I saw the legal system close up, and I understood that it was built by lawyers for lawyers, and unless you have an attorney to navigate it, you’re not going to be successful.
Imam Rauf and his backers have every legal right to build their extravagant Islamic center within the lethal radius of Ground Zero. But the rest of us have the right to question why they insist on doing so.
It is high time to compel man by the might of right to give woman her political, legal and social rights. She will find her own sphere in accordance with her capacities, powers and tastes; and yet she will be woman still.
I’ve always been driven by the concept of equal justice under the law, but only the rich can pay great sums of money for legal assistance and that puts them at an advantage over the poor.
Since 2001, the Patriot Act has provided the means to detect and disrupt terrorist threats against the U.S. Prior to enactment of the law, major legal barriers prevented intelligence, national defense, and law enforcement agencies from working together and sharing information.
State-sanctioned marriage is a civil contract, period. A contract is not a judgment of moral value. It is a legal agreement between two parties that testifies to a meeting of minds between those consenting entities. It is not a religious act or rite and so has nothing to do with Adam and Eve or Steve or even Harvey.
We have brought down emissions in this country through our legal system and through technologicalinnovation. We can do this on our own. We don’t have to have the permission of countries all over the world to do that.
We have to get control of our borders. You can only do that if you make companies obey the law and not hireundocumented or illegals. They can only do that is if they have a Social Security Card that has biometrics so they know whether the person is legal or not.
Every non-political human grouping of whatever kind, legal, social, religious, economic or other becomes at last political if it creates an opposition deep enough to range men against one another as enemies.
Francis Parker Yockey
We all know how powerful the web can be for raising political money. Well, if you’re game, the Duke Cunningham Legal Defense Fund is apparentlyready to accept your donation.
If I were in the middle of some kind of legal issue, I would get in my car and drive to Fenway. I’d get to the game early and sit in my seats and say, ‘I’m home, I’m happy, and I love it here.’ It was my therapy.
If I don’t get enough sleep, my brain gets fatigued, and the voice suffers. If I’m doing some retail work and trying to read and record legal copy, I start sounding like I had a few too many the night before.
When then-New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer sued me in 2003 over my stewardship as a director of the New York Stock Exchange, the NYSE’s legal expenses were more than $100 million, which made it perhaps the priciest litigation in the state’s history.
Unilateral divorce has decreased the bargaining power of the person who wants the marriage to last and has not engaged in behavior that meets the legal definition of fault. On the other hand, it has increased the bargaining power of the person who is willing to leave.
Society cannot escape what is essentially a moral question: When does human life deserve legal protection from the state? And society certainly cannot escape this dilemma by denying that it is fundamentally a moral issue, no matter what position one chooses.
We have used the presence of UNMIK, as well as other European and American agencies to establish a legal framework compatible with the European Union and that is already an advantage. We have seen the positive effects of this and our parliament will continue to go this way.
I just play it safe when it comes to television because it is WWE‘s intellectual property. But it is literally my legal name, like on my ID. My name hasn’t been Cody Runnels since I was 17. But it’s theirs. At no point would I ever want to go into a courtroom with a company I have love and admiration for.
It is curious that, with my somewhat antinomian tendencies, I should have gone to Trinity Hall – which was, and is, before all a Law College – and should thus have been thrown into close touch with the legal element in life.
When I say there is no such crime as date rape I am saying what is true. There isn’t a specific legal category of date rape and I wanted to make that point in order to ensure that people don’t use this to obscure the difference between real sexual violence and, you know, things that have gone wrong.
I do think there’s a difference between what a religious leader says and does and what a public official or legislator does. But there’s no question that a lot of our legal underpinnings find a good bit of their foundations in the Scriptures.
My father is a taxi driver, and my mother ran a small business. I hadn’t even met a barrister before I got my first shot at the legal profession. But back then, I was lucky enough to be given a break – I can’t help but wonder if I would be so lucky today.
We believe that government in Britain is there to protect people from terrorism and from the worst criminality, but never at the expense of our civil liberties and the basic tenets of our legal system.
My U.N. five-point plan focuses on preventingproliferation, strengthening the legal regime, and ensuring nuclear safety and security – an effort that was given good momentum by the Nuclear Security Summitheld in Seoul earlier this year. The world is over-armed, and peace is underfunded.
The reality is for 50 years in this country, federal law has required people that are illegal – or that are immigrants – or that are legal immigrants to this country to carry documentation to that effect. And that has been the law for 50 years.
The right to a trial is a core principle of the American legal system. Depriving Americans of these essential liberties undermines the Constitution while doing nothing to strengthen our national security.
That’s one thing I don’t think people consider nowadays. They want to believe in the importance of marriage, boil it down to just a signature on a legal document. But that’s exactly what it is. If not, why not just get married without one?
I write longhand on legal pads, about half at home and half in cafes. I drink a lot of water and eat a lot of rawcarrots.
When I was at the Justice Department, there were these people who I called legal Houdinis, who – they would find any law; they would find a loophole and a way around it and often very tendentious and not true, and, you know, these are people who didn’t respect the rule of law. But, you know, those people were there.
Being reliant on legal aid is probably inconceivable to most of us. But this is no different from other branches of the welfare state established at the same time as our legal aid system – being diagnosed with a major illness and needing the NHS, or losing a job and needing the support of social security.
I’m an immigrant, a legal immigrant to the United States. I only became a citizen five years ago. Every day, for seven months, I pinched myself as I was walking in and out of the West Wing, so it’s only in America, right? Only in America.
Women are emerging as a major force for change. Countries that have invested in girls’ education and removed legal barriers that prevent women from achieving their potential are now seeing the benefits.
Of course, everyone in the New World is an immigrant or a descendant of immigrants, and immigrants have built America and continue to do so. Legal or illegal, they are almost universallygood people who work to better their lot and that of their children.
Every generation gets the Constitution that it deserves. As the central preoccupations of an era make their way into the legal system, the Supreme Court eventually weighs in, and nine lawyers in robes become oracles of our national identity.
When I read a book I liked, I would get a pen and one of my father’s legal pads and rewrite it from memory as if I had thought of it myself. It was a clear sign that I wanted to be involved in writing, even if it was just pretend at that point.
In recent years personal injuryattorneys and trial lawyers have attacked the food industry with numerous lawsuits alleging that these businesses should pay monetary damages to those who, of their own accord, consume too much of a legal, safe product.
I didn’t have a lot of great jobs. I was a third-shift legal proofreader. I did office work for people where a friend might say, ‘Hey, we need someone,’ in his office, and then I will have a month or two weeks or whatever somewhere. I was – I taught fictionworkshops.
If you have Trump avoidingincome tax and money coming in, and then he’s still able to control it and use it as if it was his income to help his interests, then you’re starting to see a bigger legal problem.
Instead, California is one of only 10 states that provides in-state college and universitytuition to illegal immigrants. That’s grossly unfair to a legal high school student who moves out of California for a year, then returns to attend college.
The situation around Terri Schiavo was a deeply held conflict over what to do if someone isn’t going to return to consciousness or competence. Who will decide? Even there, where we had settled legal rules, we still had disagreement. We’re torn about these things.
I’ve learned to accept the fact that my students are far too busypreparing for their own legal careers to care one bit about the off-campus antics of Professor Burke. I get the impression that my students are vaguely aware of my novels, but are at best mildly curious.
With respect to the legal justifications or the policiesrelating to the treatment of detainees, I was not aware of any issues on that or the legal memos that subsequently came out until the summer, sometime in 2004, when there started to be news reports on that.
I don’t plan on going back to legal work. I wanted an international career, and finance seemed to be where some interesting career opportunities were.
Part of the problem is there are people in Washington, D.C. in positions of power to whom the border is just a nuisance, and I think some of them believe that illegal immigration is a moral good. It is not. It undermines legal immigration.
The people and the mindset that killed 3,000 of our fellow citizens on September 11 2001, would have killed not 3,000, but 300,000 if they could have or 3 million or 30 million. We need to do everything we can within our value systems and legal structures to make sure that doesn’t happen.
In order to create real, long-lasting reform, we must create a pathway to legal status for the millions of undocumented immigrants who have made lives for themselves and their families in the United States.
People have a false understanding of what our legal system is like – how it works/operates – from shows like ‘Law and Order,’ which suggest that lawyers appear on demand and do a tremendous amount of investigation and background research.
The National Security Agency has broken privacy rules or overstepped its legal authority thousands of times each year since Congress granted the agency broad new powers in 2008, according to an internalaudit and other top-secret documents.
I don’t know of many evangelicals who want to deny gay couples their legal rights. However, most of us don’t want to call it marriage, because we think that word has religious connotations, and we’re not ready to see it used in ways that offend us.
I used to want to be a lawyer, but I didn’t want to have half my brain sucked out.
In places where marriage’s core meaning has been altered through legal action, officials are beginning to target for punishment those believers and churches that refuse to adapt.
Salvatore J. Cordileone
When the Senateceases to engage nominees in meaningful discussion of legal issues, the confirmation process takes on an air of vacuity and farce, and the Senate becomes incapable of either properly evaluating nominees or appropriately educating the public.
And they didn’t have to get into a lot of legal speak or talk ER terms, they were real people. I think that’s why so many actresses were attracted to it. And it was just about problems that you could identify with so much, right off the bat.
People have always heardvoices. Sometimes they’re called shamans, sometimes they’re called mad, and sometimes they’re called fiction writers. I always feel lucky that I live in a culture where fiction writing is legal and not seen as pathology.
I recognise that the whole issue of downloading and intellectual property rights is not an easy one, but on the whole, I’m a fan of downloading, both legal and illegal, and the open-source ethos that it harbours for the future is a good one.
Mr. Speaker, the fact of the matter is that the Ten Commandments are a historical document that contains moral, ethical, and legal truisms that any person of any religion or even an atheist can recognize and appreciate.
Words without deeds violates the moral and legal obligation we have under the genocide convention but, more importantly, violates our sense of right and wrong and the standards we have as human beings about looking to care for one another.
Any government in the world, when facing an armed rebellion, has a constitutional, legal, and moral obligation to resist these militants.
All of the legal defense funds out there, they’re looking for people out there with court of appeals experience, because court of appeals is where policy is made. And I know, I know this is on tape and I should never say that because we don’t make law, I know. I know.
I know how easy it is for one to stay well within moral, ethical, and legal bounds through the skillful use of words – and to thereby spin, sidestep, circumvent, or bend a truth completely out of shape. To that extent, we are all liars on numerous occasions.
My first ever sex scene in a movie was in ‘Superbad.’ Because I was 17, for legal reasons my mother had to be on the set. It was real awkward, but it worked out OK because when I watched the movie with her, the sex scene wasn’t awkward because she’d been right there when it happened.
When I was on ‘Hurt Bert’ on FX – and I’m not crapping on FX, I’m just being honest – there was a point when I realized that they didn’t care if I died. If I died, they’d say ‘Of course it’s a legal thing, but think of the numbers.’
The Life at Conception Act legislatively declares what most Americans believe and what science has long known – that human life begins at the moment of conception and, therefore, is entitled to legal protection from that point forward.
Coercion may prevent many transgressions; but it robs even actions which are legal of a part of their beauty. Freedom may lead to many transgressions, but it lends even to vices a less ignoble form.
Wilhelm von Humboldt
U.S. intelligence has the legal right to monitor foreign communications as they go through to U.S. service providers. However, even though something is legal doesn’t make it right. I’m not American; I don’t really care about what data is being collected about American citizens. I’m worried about us, the foreigners.
When I was on ‘Hurt Bert’ on FX – and I’m not crapping on FX, I’m just being honest – there was a point when I realized that they didn’t care if I died. If I died, they’d say ‘Of course it’s a legal thing, but think of the numbers.’
Vigorous enforcement of copyrights themselves is an important part of the picture. But I don’t think that expanding the legal definition of copyright outside of actual copyright infringement is the right move.
I find these dramasfascinating – it’s a world that many of us fortunately don’t dip into. The legal system is all around us, but the majority of us don’t have to go into a court, so it’s a way into another world that is unusual.
I remember being upset because I was finally legal to drink in Canada, and I decided to throw that all away and move to America, where I had to wait another two years. I came here to do improv and to try to join the Groundlings.
So my own suspicion is that the attorney has stopped this prosecution because part of her defence was to question legality and that would have brought his advice into the public domain again and there was something fishy about the way in which he said war was legal.
They view massive immigration as a massive infusion of potential voters for the Democratic Party, and therefore will do nothing, absolutely nothing to stop that flow of legal or illegal entrance into the country.
We must have great respect for these people who also suffer and who want to find their own way of correct living. On the other hand, to create a legal form of a kind of homosexual marriage, in reality, does not help these people.
Judges wear legal professionalism and precedent as a mantel that secures legitimacy for their decisions. It’s how they distinguish themselves from politicians or administrative agencies, while wielding power that is sometimes much greater than those democratically accountable actors.
If there are people who act outside the law, then the state must use legal means to impose law in the interests of majority. That’s the way it’s done in the U.S., and that’s the way it’s done in Russia.
Torture, including practices like waterboarding, violates the legal and moral standards of all civilized nations.
If you take guns away from legal gun owners, then the only people who would have guns would be the bad guys. Even a pacifist would get violent if someone were trying to kill him or her. You would fight for your life, whatever your beliefs.
If I was applying for a legal position, I would highlight my experience working for the San Francisco-L.A. DA’s office, and I would mention some of the high-profile cases I did, but if I was looking for another television job, I would gloss over that, and I’d mention the highlight reel of what I did in television.
I say to the women out there, remember how difficult it was for women like Justice O’Connor starting out. Even though she graduated with top grades, she had to take a job as a legal secretary. Remember how far we have come.
While Taliban fighters had an initial claim to protection under the conventions, they lost POW status by failing to obey the standards of conduct for legal combatants: wearing uniforms, a responsible command structure, and obeying the laws of war.
For me, it’s sad to say, but I would probably have a spiritual marriage but not a legal marriage, because I think so much about marriage starts to become about finances. It has nothing to do with God or feelings or the romantic side of marriage. It’s about who owns what, who gets what? So what’s the point?
Every lethal terrorist attack in the United States since 9/11 has been carried out by an American citizen or a legal permanent resident, not by recent immigrants or by refugees. So tamping down immigration won’t fix the real issue, which is ‘homegrown‘ terrorism.
In legal practice, in the representation of clients, I have always felt deeply engaged, serene, and not all inclined to stand aside. I have always done whatever needed to be done, and have usually gotten my way.
If we want to set and enforce a limit on immigration, we have to be willing to say no to would-be immigrants who look a lot like our own ancestors, not because there’s anything wrong with them, but simply because admitting them would exceed our legal limit.
If a journalist comes to you with a great story, one of the first questions you ask is how did you get it. How you got it is relevant to judging its accuracy and preparing yourself for any legal challenge.
Every neurosis is a primitive form of legal proceeding in which the accused carries on the prosecution, imposes judgment and executes the sentence: all to the end that someone else should not perform the same process.
Justice? You get justice in the next world, in this world you have the law.
Prosecutors committed to reform need talented staff members who share that commitment, and our best legal talent should flock to their offices.
I would expect illegal alien parents to take care of their children. If it means the kids go back home with them, that’s what happens. If it means there are legal relatives in the United States that can take care of them, that can happen to. But I believe it’s the parents responsibility to take care of the kids.
One of the things I believe strongly in is developing institutions – legal, press, bureaucracies, academies – that are rooted in the pursuit of impartial truth. That aren’t simply just bent to partisan ends or are corrupted for the powerful or for other ulterior motives.
I think it’s pathetic that a court of law cannot be in a vacuum of the legal system, without the influence of the public threatening to do great bodily harm to people and property. It’s really a pathetic statement for our country.
The longer you remain silent, the longer you don’t turn over documents, a presumption begins to build that you’re withholding something. That’s human nature. That may not be a legal presumption, but that’s a common sense presumption.
We do not believe voters gave President Bush a mandate to turn back the clock decades on so many of our legal protections.
Ralph G. Neas
I have a book coming out in September, for example, where the plot concerns counterfeiting, and I had to do a lot of research on that. Or on any legal matters, for example, I have to do a lot of research online.
The history of American democracy, to say the least, has been checkered. Our nation was founded at a time when people of Africandescent were held in bondage. After slavery was abolished, they were forced to endure legal discrimination for another 100 years.
The real guys that I knew were really cool people, who I played basketball with and traveled with on teams and knew their families and knew that they love their family. They just happen to do something that wasn’t all the way legal, but it was a part of their life, and you knew that they hustled.
I very much feel that marriage is a sacrament and that sacrament should extend… to that legal entity of a union between what traditionally in our Western values has been defined as between a man and a woman.
There is no quick fix for illegal immigration. But only when we achieve better control of our borders and better respect for our immigration laws can we give meaning to the discussion we need to have over reforming the numbers, categories, and procedures for legal immigration into the United States.
Yahoo! had a choice. It chose to provide an e-mail service hosted on servers based inside China, making itself subject to Chinese legal jurisdiction. It didn’t have to do that. It could have provided a service hosted offshore only.
We’re going to try and prove to the market that you can do a legal coin offering. If the SEC doesn’t crack down, this party will be amazing – the biggest party in town for a long time. If they do crack down, a lot of people are going to feel a lot of pain.
National data on evictions aren’t collected, although national data on foreclosures are. And so if anyone wants to, kind of, get to know any statistical research about evictions, they have to really dig in the annals of legal records.
To have the opportunity to lead the Solicitor General’s office is the honor of a lifetime. As you know, this is an office with a long and rich tradition, not only of extraordinary legal skill but also of extraordinary professionalism and integrity. That is due, in large measure, to the people who have led it.
I think, clearly, where you have a situation in which the Solicitor General tells me, ‘I cannot in good faith argue a certainly legal position,’ and if the president told us to argue that position, we would have to tell him, ‘No, we can’t do that, Mr. President.’
It is common sense that in our immigration courts, where children fleeing devastating violence abroad often find themselves, kids need lawyers to advocate on their behalf. After all, lawyers go to school for years to understand the nuances of our legal system.
The United States has an unfair advantage, as most of the popular cloud services, search engines, computer and mobileoperating systems or web browsers are made by U.S. companies. When the rest of the world uses the net, they are effectively using U.S.-based services, making them a legal target for U.S. intelligence.
Britain has always been a good citizen in the world. We rightly provide a safe haven for people fleeing political persecution by brutal regimes. Our legal system is often seen as a beacon for the rest of the world, with people coming from all over to study it and embed its principles into their own systems.
What I’m doing is writing stories about women who care about justice. They are women who think about the difference between right and wrong, what’s legal and illegal, ethical and unethical, moral and immoral.

With ‘GoldenEye,’ the franchise got locked into this legal fight. They couldn’t make new Bond movies for about seven years. It was my first huge production. I figured if I did at least a yeoman-like job, it would be greeted as a complete revival of the series.
I would often find myself, at the age of 21, at midnight, running down a dark street on my own with 10 men chasing me. And the fact they had cameras in their hands made that legal.
In the United States, female fisticuffs were marginalized, first as erotic vaudeville in the 19th century and later as serious competition developed in the first half of the 20th. Legal wars waged by boxers in the 1960s and ’70s won women the right to compete professionally nationwide.
