Massachusetts Law: Massachusetts Lawyer Views Adverse Possession criminal law massachusetts criminal lawyers. Today English law is still the law of the The California civil code (Section 22.2) states that http://www.lawyerviews.com/lawsite/basics.html
Extractions: Introduction Today there are literally millions of laws (and millions of lawsuits), there are laws covering virtually every field of human endeavor and the number is growing. This growth is not only numerical, it is substantive. As the law grows, it changes because courts are constantly interpreting laws by applying them to particular circumstances. For this reason law has been characterized as a seamless web. What follows is a general framework for understanding the legal system, followed by basic introductions to selected legal areas. General Introductory information: Massachusetts Criminal Lawyers The Common Law The legal system of the United States is based on the common law of England. Even though the colonies revolted against the British empire, they retained its legal institutions. In fact, the colonists revolted precisely because they believed that their common law rights were being taken away. Today English law is still the law of the land in some states. The California civil code (Section 22.2) states that the "common law of England, so far as it is not repugnant to or inconsistent with the Constitution of the United States, or Constitution or laws of this state, is the rule of decision in all the courts of this state." The distinguishing features of the common law are that it is based on a system of rights and most of the law is judge-made. Rights are an abstract concept that can be confusing, but the basic idea is straightforward. Rights can be thought of as domains or spheres in which people are free to act without interference. The common law evolved to protect and define this "space." The legal categories that most people are familiar with are common law rights. Property defines the right to possess and own things. Contracts deal with the transfer and exchange of rights. Torts protect rights from accidents and aggression.

News & Features | IDENTITY CRISIS CORI reads like a synopsis of the US criminal code. a list of Davids 74 criminal charges Fran Fajama, an attorney with the massachusetts law Reform Institute http://www.bostonphoenix.com/boston/news_features/this_just_in/documents/0380613
Extractions: BY DAVID S. BERNSTEIN Edward Bland, of Springfield, has what the Executive Office of Public Safety (EOPS) would call an "alias problem." Others might call it plain old identity theft. In Blands case, a guy named Donald Fowler who has a list of criminal charges on his record claimed to be Bland when stopped by police. At some point, police caught on that Fowler was using Blands name as an alias, and put that in the Massachusetts Criminal Offender Record Information (CORI) database. With the two records linked in the CORI database, any time Fowler claims to be Bland, both records will come up. Thats really useful for police, but really annoying if youre Edward Bland, whos been reduced to carrying around a letter from Hampden County assistant district attorney Patrick Sabbs to prove to potential employers that he is not Donald Fowler and that he does not have a criminal record. Blands problem is one of the most common complaints about the states CORI system (see " Record Time ," News and Features, August 29, 2003). Now, with help from the Massachusetts Law Reform Institute, Bland and others are fighting back with a class-action lawsuit, filed in Suffolk Superior Court last Thursday.
Citizens' Arrest Contrast this to massachusetts law, which while permitting a Kentucky law holds that a person witnessing a a citizen s arrest (Kentucky criminal code § 37; S http://www.constitution.org/grossack/arrest.htm
Extractions: Not long ago the politically correct Boston Globe noticed a "shocking" new trend. It seems as if some citizens of Massachusetts were so fed up with crime that they have begun to intervene in petty street crime afflicting the streets of our cities. Thieves and pickpockets in Massachusetts should exercise caution in where and how they ply their craft as the chances that vigilantes pummel them and drag them to the nearest cop are definitely on an upswing. While the Globe is shocked at this healthy trend, students of the law should note that both a statutory and common law basis for a certain degree of "vigilante behavior" is well founded. Indeed, in an era of lawlessness it is important that readers be advised as to their lawful right to protect their communities, loved ones and themselves by making lawful citizens' arrests. The purpose of this essay is to simply explain the law and the historical context of the citizen's arrest. First, what is an arrest?
Extractions: The chasm between those states that "do" and those states that "don't" is big and getting bigger. One day after Ohio legislators approved a sweeping ban on same sex unions, the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court issued an advisory ruling declaring that only same-sex marriage outright, and not merely same-sex unions, would satisfy the Bay State's constitution. Dozens of other states already have outlawed civil unions. But several other states, and many local communities, formally recognize some form of rights for same-sex couples. The Justices of the United States Supreme Court probably can feel this legal, political, religious and moral firestorm coming their way. In fact, they helped start the conflagration last June when a majority on the Court outlawed Texas' sodomy stature because it discriminated against homosexuals. Ultimately, the Justices will have to decide whether the rationale of their Texas ruling can extend beyond the arena of the criminal code and into the arena of civil rights and privileges. A definitive answer to that question probably is years away. But between now and then the fur is going to fly in dozens of courtrooms across the country.
