During the last five decades, an international legal basis for space activities was built up. It was established in the United Nations through its Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space and its Legal Subcommittee, which contributed to the progressive development of international law in a special field of outer space. The present system of space law now comprises the UN Space Treaties and Principles, other international space agreements and also national laws, which complete international norms by national regulations of activities performed under the jurisdiction of individual States. <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
Malum in se (plural mala in se ) is a Latin phrase meaning wrong or evil in itself . The phrase is used to refer to conduct assessed as sinful or inherently wrong by nature, independent of regulations governing the conduct. It is distinguished from malum prohibitum , which is wrong only because it is prohibited. For example, most human beings believe that murder, rape, and theft are wrong, regardless of whether a law governs such conduct or where the conduct occurs, and is thus recognizably malum in se .
The Wall Street Journal national security reporting team, followed closely by the Washington Post and the AP, have been reporting in the last couple of days on the CIA being tasked to carry out an expanded Predator drone targeted killing program in Yemen. I’ve been meaning to blog on this, following on Deborah’s post below discussing the AP story, but meanwhile Robert Chesney poses the following question over at the Lawfare blog (where you can find links to these articles and an expanded discussion): [W]hat really struck me about the stories was their common reference to a particular legal argument.
One of the gems of Yale's architectural heritage is the sense of humour imparted by James Gamble Rogers, the architect (and Yale graduate) who designed many of Yale's neo-Gothic treasures in the inter-war period. Throughout the Yale campus, one may find hilarious little sculptural treasures ornamenting the otherwise serious and foreboding Gothic buildings. The contrast between the heaviness of the revered Gothic style and Rogers' quirky embellishments makes a walk through the campus a delight, as startling little revelations are found in the many nooks and crannies. The Yale Law School, in particular, boasts a number of sculptic oddities, like the series of faces above: the killer, the thief, the cop, and the judge. [click pictures for larger images]
HNN Roundtable: Do Democrats Have a Double Standard for Obama? Are liberal Democrats compromising their principles by supporting President Obama, despite the centrist positions he has taken on some partisan issues? This is precisely the kind of question that is far more difficult for a historian to answer than, say, a journalist. Historians, by definition, work with the benefit of years or decades of hindsight, and this is the type of issue about which reasonable people could change their minds within the course of a few months.
Letter asking Congress to reject the PROTECT-IP bill (PDF) Over 100 professors who teach and write about intellectual property, Internet law, innovation, and the First Amendment are urging the members of Congress to reject the PROTECT-IP Act of 2011 (S. 968) . The bill would give the government sweeping authority to take websites offline, remove websites from search engines, and bring infringement claims against Internet publishers. The professors have signed onto a letter written by Stanford Law School’s Mark A. Lemley , the William H. Neukom Professor of Law and director of the Stanford Program in Law, Science & Technology; David Levine , assistant professor of Law at Elon University School of Law and an affiliate scholar at the Center for Internet and Society (CIS); and David Post , professor of law at the Temple University Beasley School of Law.
Adverse possession is a process by which premises can change ownership. It is governed by statute [ 1 ] concerning the title to real property (land and the fixed structures built upon it). By adverse possession, title to another's real property can be acquired without compensation , by holding the property in a manner that conflicts with the true owner 's rights for a specified period.
Trespass, Adverse Possession and Prescriptive Easements Man, like a tree in the cleft of a rock, gradually shapes his roots to his surroundings, and when the roots have grown to a certain size, can't be displaced without cutting at his life. -- Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes People have the right to keep unwanted intruders off their property.
It reads to me like you are doing exactly the wrong things! The deed attachment probably serves as notice of the adverse use time clock having a definite starting time--and once it times out you are dead meat. The way I understand some of the case law elsewhere--once you become aware of the adverse use or should have been aware then there is no question of the time clock running against you. Your post makes no sesne--if the home is on you lands --how do you accurately fence your lands? Your survey is not accurate until som ecourt agres it is accurate--and you need to use a surveyor with considerable court experience--because you better get there! In many places you rights as true land owner , once you prove you are the true land owner are superior--and that means you can require the other guy to move the house or tear it down back to the property line--and you need to focus on same--or his costs of doing so.
Following a 2007 veto of S.5364-A/A.9156 (veto #153)by Governor Spitzer, this week Governor David Patterson signed S.7915-C/A.11574-A changing the statutory standard for adverse possession in New York. According to the Sponsor’s Memorandum in support of the bill (Senator Elizabeth O’C. Little), the Legislation was offered in reaction to recent case law on adverse possession by the New York Court of Appeals (Walling v. Przvbvlo, 7N.Y.3d 228 (2006)) and an appellate court (Robinson v Robinson, 34 AD.3d 975, 825 N.Y.S.2d 277( 3d dept – 2006).
