Teachers are great. I hope they teach students to not only be smart, but also to be good respectable people.

Why can't President Bush run for reelection?

Legal Pub said...

The 22nd Amendment to the constitution prevents a President from being elected to more than two terms in a row.

This ammendment came as a reaction to President Roosevelt serving several terms in the Whitehouse.

Great question.

Wouldn't it be great if all teachers could project this value through-out the U.S.A.?

Legal Publication has been proud to provide probono services to school age children. This particular teacher has been very active in getting quality speakers for her class room.

Why do people get to have juries decide their cases when judges could do it instead?

Legal Pub said...

The 6th amendment to the constitution gives you the right to a jury trial (trial by your peers ) in criminal cases.

The 7th Amendment gives you the right to a jury trial in civil cases (cases about money.)

While you have the right to a trial by jury, the defendant can waive (give up) that right and stipulate to trial by the Judge.

Can I sue my mom if I get hurt in a car accident and it is her fault?

Legal Pub said...

In most states, including Indiana, parental immunity prevents you from getting a judgment against your mom for negligence. In addition, some states, have guest statutes which also prevent a passenger from suing the driver if the driver is a parent or other close relative.

Good Question...

P.S. as to Surfer Dude, I think you are out of luck the teacher is apparently taken.

If it is, you are quite a handsome whippersnapper!

Could we fire a president?

Legal Pub said...

Article Two of the Constitution outlines the procedure for impeaching (removing) the President by office. The impeachment begins in the House of Representatives and then involves the whole Congress.

So, lets keep this thread open, in case the babe in the photo wants to post her name and number, and in the mean time, pubmeister, serve us up another story

Legal Pub said...

Try this story on size until I create a new topic.

Students Heckle Gonzales at Harvard
AP
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (April 29) - A small group of student protesters, including one wearing a black hood and an orange jumpsuit, heckled Attorney General Alberto Gonzales as he posed with old classmates Saturday during their 25-year Harvard Law School reunion.

"When the photographer was getting everybody set up and having people say 'cheese,' the protesters yelled: 'say torture, instead,' 'resign' and 'I don't recall,'" said Nate Ela, a protester and third-year student.

California Surfer Dude said: All these photos of hot teachers reminds me of a story...

One afternoon a rich teacher was riding in her limousine when she saw two men along the roadside eating grass. Disturbed, she ordered his driver to stop and investigate.

The men explained that they had to eat grass because they had no money for food.
Being a kind teacher, she invited them to come back to her house and she would feed them and their families.

They all entered the teacher's limousine. One of the poor
fellows turned to the teacher and said, "Mam, you are too kind. Thank you for taking all of us with you."

The rich teacher replied, "Glad to do it. You'll really love my place.
The grass is almost a foot high."

Indiana Supreme Court decided the Naugle v. Beech Grove City Schools case. The Court held: 1) the term "days" as used in the Wage Payment Statute refers to business days and not calendar days; 2) School Corporations are subject to the Wage Payment Statute; 3) there is no generic good faith defense to the Wage Payment Statute; and 4) within the ten-day rule, there is no requirement that employees must make a request or demand. This decision is consistent with the law just passed on April 25, 2007, by the Indiana Legislature (SB 276). It is the intent of the general assembly that the ten (10) day period referenced in IC 22-2-5-1, before its amendment by this act, be construed as ten (10) business days (as defined in IC 22-2-5-0.5, as added by this act).
