Facts of the Case

In Cleveland, Ohio, 3 members of local law enforcement arrived at a house with the purpose of executing a search that was obtained in order to search the property where a supposed bomb suspect was hiding out, at the house were the plaintiff, Mapp, and her daughter, both of whom lived on the second story of the two-family residence.

Miss Mapp's attorney arrived at the residence, the officers would not allow him entrance, nor would they allow him to view the search warrant. While Miss Mapp continued questioning the officers about the warrant, an officer quickly flashed a piece of paper, at which time Miss Mapp grabbed the piece of paper and proceeded to hide it in her chest area. This caused a conflict between the officers and Miss Mapp, which eventually led to Miss Mapp being taken into police custody and handcuffed under the guise that she was being uncooperative and a threat to the officer’s safety. In handcuffs, Miss Mapp was taken to the 2nd story of her residence. Upon which time officers began to search the dresser, the drawers, the closet, some suitcases, and various personal items. The search continued in the minor’s bedroom, followed by the…...

Joanna, a neighbor, is in law school. She is not licensed to practice law. She offers to draft a lease for you for $100, and you unwisely accept. Later, you refuse to pay her fee and she sues to collect. Problem or Issue: Who will win the lawsuits, and why? Apart from the law, was it morally right for the law student to try to help out by drafting the lease, and why? Was she acting helpfully, or foolishly, or fraudulently? Is it just for you to agree to her fee and then refuse to pay it? What is society’s interest in this dispute? Should a court be more concerned with the ethical issue raised by the conduct of the two parties or with the social consequences of this agreement? Answer or Resolution: I will win the lawsuit. Joanna and I have no contract of leasing. It is right on morally to try to help me out by drafting the lease. She has no license of a lawyer, so she acts foolishly. It is not just for me to agree to her fee and then refuse to pay it. The society interest in the law school student whether or not can draft a lease. The court should be more concerned with the ethical issue raised by the conduct of the two parties. Analysis: A car sale contract passes ownership of the car from seller to buyer.

Mapp V. Ohio

...Mapp v. Ohio, 367 U.S. 643 (1961) was a very important case and turning point in our nation's history. It changed our legal system by extending the evidence exclusionary rule that was originally decided in Weeks v. United States, 232 U.S. 383 (1914). It also marked the final incorporation of the fourth amendment into the due process clause of the fourteenth. The exclusionary rule was created in Weeks which prevented the federal government from using evidence that is found during an illegal search without a warrant. Years later in Wolf v Colorado, 338 U.S. 25 (1949) the Supreme Court ruled that both state and local governments must obey the fourth amendment by getting a warrant before conducting a search. The court also said the exclusionary rule did not apply to the states allowing state prosecutors to use illegally seized evidence in trial. Mapp v. Ohio gave the Supreme Court the chance to overrule Wolf and apply the exclusionary rule to the states. Mapp v. Ohio was quite the interesting case. It started on May 23, 1957, when three Cleveland police officers arrived at Dolly Mapp's home regarding information suggesting that a person wanted for questioning in connection with a bombing was hiding in the house, and upon a large amount of paraphernalia in the home (Mapp v. Ohio). The officers demanded entrance but Ms. Mapp refused entrance to the home without a search warrant after telephoning her attorney (Mapp v. Ohio). They took surveillance of the house and arrived...

Mapp V. Ohio

...Carmen Cabresita 8/4/13 AJS/502 Mapp v. Ohio Mapp v. Ohio The Supreme Court case of Mapp v. Ohio was heard in 1961 and originated in the local courts of the State of Ohio. This case plays an important role currently in our court system because it focuses on the warrant, search and seizures, Exclusionary Rule, Due Process and the 4th Amendment. This has molded every aspect in which the police agencies and the government as to how they can retrieve any incriminating evidence from any potential offender in the United States thru our criminal justice system. Mapp v. Ohio (Plaintiff) is unique because this case challenged the Constitution and the Bill of Rights at the Supreme Court level. This case also challenged a police department because it was also able to show that at times the police officers are not meeting the criteria of which a warrant must be served on an individual. The police officers in this case had served a questionable warrant to Ms. Mapp that should have been for another individual within the same residence. The officers were attempting to incriminate MS. Mapp with evidence not pertaining to her in hopes of holding someone liable. The person in question that they were investigating no longer lived at that residence. As it turned out the warrant that was served was a bogus one, which the court, while it was conducting the trial, was unable to obtain. Evidence presented during trial was a gun and pornographic material. There were three...

Mapp V. Ohio Synopsis

...Mapp v. Ohio Synopsis Who was involved? Dollree Mapp had numerous connections to the underground world of boxing and illegal gambling. She was married to and had previous relationships with boxers and promoters who were big in the Midwest at the time. Mapp was first brought to Law Enforcement’s attention by having a potential connection to a bombing suspect named Virgil Ogletree. The police had heard from an anonymous tip that Ogletree might be hiding out within Mapp’s home. The police soon showed up, knocked, and asked if they could search the house. Mapp being somewhat aware of her rights refused entry to the police. They returned in greater numbers, forcibly entered the home, conducted a search and found Ogletree who was eventually cleared of all charges. However, the police did come across what is noted as “obscene material” which Mapp claimed was found within a footlocker of a previous tenant. The material collected being betting slips, a pistol, and some pornography. Mapp was later cleared of the charges pertaining to the betting slips located in the house but was later asked to testify against members of the illegal betting operation. Mapp refused and was later charged with possession of “lewd and lascivious books, pictures, and photographs”. She was sentenced to 7 years and immediately filed an appeal. This is where the story of Mapp v. Ohio really begins. What was argued? Mapp’s appeal argued that her 4th, 5th, and 8th amendments rights were violated...

...Case Brief-Quick Trip Competitive Positioning Although Quick Trip is widely known as one of the major gasoline retailer agents, its forays into the retail food system cannot go unnoticed. The company has established major outlets throughout the United States providing competition to the traditionally established retail outlets. A major point of departure is the kind of food offered by this retail store. Selling of freshly cooked food is rarely done in the United States especially among the many stops- over retail centers. Apart from the sale of food and gasoline, the company has invested a lot in branding and quality customer service. This has increased the customer base of the enterprise. The latest entry being in North Carolina. The retail food outlets use the established brand to attract more consumers. The retail outlets face stiff competition from major supermarkets and established food outlets. However, the strategy in place sees off the competition. Instead of developing many retail units across the country, Quick Trip resorted to establishing retail outlets in densely populated areas across major roads visited by numerous travelers. The outlets were established in major towns and cities providing a huge customer base. Moreover, the prices of the products in the outlets are lower compared to other stores making it a suitable outlet for buying goods. These are just some of the main reason most people prefer Quick Trip as compared to the other major retail...
