Claiming Illegal Electronic Surveillance: An Examination Of 18 U.S.C. 3504(A)(1), Margaret V. Sachs

Scholarly Works

This Comment will first discuss the making of claims under section 3504(a)(1), and will show that the statute should not be read to require that claims be accompanied by evidentiary support. It will then suggest that the statute should be read to encompass claims of attorney-third party conversations. Finally, the scope of the government's response to section 3504(a)(I) claims will be examined.

Carey v. Sugar, 425 U.S. 73 (1976)

This is an appeal from a three-judge court decision sustaining the constitutionality of a Tennessee pre-judgement wage-garnishment statute against a claim that it failed to provide for notice and a hearing prior to the garnishment. The statute permits wage garnishments, as a means of obtaining in rem jurisdiction where efforts to obtain in personam jurisdiction over a defendant fail.

Dear Byron,

I am glad to join your proposed Per Curiam and see no reason why it should not be a signed opinion.

Section 12 Of The Canada Evidence Act And The Deliberations Of Simulated Juries, Valerie P. Hans, Anthony N. Doob

Cornell Law Faculty Publications

In the past, there have been three major approaches to the experimental investigation of the jury.

The second class of research is group study, in which the amount and style of individual participation is observed within the context of simulated jury deliberations (e.g., Strodtbeck, James and Hawkins, 1957).
