A Historical Overview Of Prisoner's Rights
[ send me this paper ]
8 pages in length. Prisoners were not happy with the judicial hands-off policy as instituted by the 1871 Ruffin v. Commonwealth case. They did not appreciate being considered slaves of the state during the extent of their prison stay; however, they were not in a situation to rectify such policy. It is important for the student to realize that what ultimately sprung from judges' alleged indifference toward prisoners' civil rights was a re-examination of just how unconstitutional such inaction proved to be.

Agency and Employee Accountability in Cases of Negligence: The Legal Issues of Employee Credibility and Training
[ send me this paper ]
An 8 page assertion that our educational arena has been subject to many challenges and disappointments. At the center of many of these is the issues of employee credibility and training. That the educational system has a problem is not an issue of contention. What is questionable in the current day legal environment, however, is whether or not employees and school districts can be held legally liable for the educational inadequacies which result from inadequate teacher qualifications and training. This paper utilizes the Supreme Court cases of Monroe Vs Pape (1961), Monell Vs Dept of Social Services (1978), City Of Oklahoma Vs Tuttle (1984), Daniels Vs Willaims (1986), Davidson Vs Cannon (1986), and City of Springfield Vs Kibbe (1987) to add insight to that question. All illustrate the delicate balance between employee liability and negligence on the part of the agency when employee credibility is challenged. Bibliography lists 5 sources.
