ADA Violations in College

The Americans with Disabilities Act has dramatically improved millions of lives since its inception in 1990. One of the most important aspects of this legislation has been protecting young adults' access to college education without being discriminated against based on their disability. In recent years, this fundamental right has fallen by the wayside as universities across the country engage in a recurring pattern of discrimination. Prospective students who face this threat are rightfully fearful as they watch the American dream slip through their fingers. 

Reconciling Years of Abuse: The Catholic Church Finally Pays For Its Sins

When the Catholic Church's sexual abuse scandal first came into the public eye in the late 1980s, the world was shocked and disturbed to learn of the countless children who were sexually abused by their most trusted confidants: local priests and clergy members.

Happy Constitution Day!

Today we celebrate the signing of the United States constitution in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on September 17, 1787. Delight in your rights for life, liberty, owning property, and pursuing safety and happiness. Formerly "Citizenship Day," Senator Robert Byrd changed the holiday to "Constitution Day," which mandates all publicly funded schools and federal organizations provide education on the history of the American Constitution.

Setting Bad Precedent: Juvenile Convicted of Involuntary Manslaughter for Writing Texts

You may remember that old adage from childhood, "sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me." Well, new case precedent may change that. Recently, a juvenile judge found Michelle Carter guilty of involuntary manslaughter after text messages revealed she urged her boyfriend, Conrad Roy III to "get back in" his truck as it was filling with carbon monoxide.

Is the Employer or Employee Liable for Your Injuries: Understanding the Doctrine of Respondeat Superior

Let's say you are looking to buy a car and go to a dealership. While there, you go with a sales rep and test drive several cars. After testing out a new beamer, the sales rep asks you to step out of the car and help direct him back into the parking spot. While the sales rep is backing up the car, he accidently hits the gas rather than the break and runs over your foot. You're rushed to the ER with a broken foot and have to get emergency surgery. Now, you have to miss work for weeks while you heal. Let's not even talk about the sky high medical bills you've accumulated.

Happy Election Day?

Well, today is election day. I remember my first experience with a presidential election. I was in second grade. Bill Clinton was running against Bob Dole. The classroom full of seven year-olds cast their imaginary ballots. Personally, I went for Clinton. My reasoning was very complex, you see. Clinton had a pet dog, Dole did not. Today, who I vote for is based on reasoning that is a bit more sophisticated than my 7-year-old self. Going through law school, you gather a great respect for our Founding Fathers and the document so many people rarely think about-the Constitution.
