fishkill, United States - November 20, 2018 /PressCable/ —

Foreclosure is a difficult circumstance to deal with and it is vital that people gain as much knowledge as they can to help them keep their property. Also there are many other crucial civil matters where it is essential for one to seek out help in the process of establishing a winning strategy. One of the things that can make for a positive outcome in these matters is securing a jury trial in fighting foreclosure and other civil matters where applicable.

Here are some some tips and useful information in the pursuit of justice to consider in ones efforts to go for a jury trial instead of a trial by just having a judge sit over the matter.

Along these lines foreclosure and law researcher Guy Te Watson at Help-To-Stop-Foreclosure.Net says “People in foreclosure and other civil matters can fight for a jury trial, which to often is denied in such cases and that can be because of a lack of meaningful efforts to secure a trial by jury.” He further states that “When it comes to a particular situation everyone needs to do their own research into these matters as it applies to them.” And these tips herein can help with that research along the way.

First, from Guy Te’s research in certain circumstances including but not limited to many “foreclosures,” it is a constitutional right to have a jury trial for matters that include a debt of more than twenty dollars. The United States of America federal constitution states in the Seventh Amendment that “In suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right to trial by jury shall be preserved….” Using this constitutional provision can be of benefit as one works to save his or her real or other property and secure a trial by jury.

Second, State constitutions also usually include a significant clause that protects the right to a jury trial like the Constitution of the State of Alaska at section 16. Civil Suits; Trial by Jury, it states “In civil cases where the amount in controversy exceeds two hundred fifty dollars, the right of trial by a jury of twelve is preserved to the same extent as it existed at common law.” So state constitutions and their jury trial clauses can also make the difference between getting to call a jury or not be able to do so for a trial.

Third, one may wonder why should he or she request a jury over a trial by a judge. Well in the matter of Taylor v. Louisiana Justice White delivered the opinion of the court and says why a jury trial is important. He states, ” The purpose of a jury is to guard against the exercise of arbitrary power — to make available the common sense judgment of the community as a hedge against the overzealous or mistaken prosecutor and in preference to the professional, or perhaps overconditioned or biased response of a judge.”

According to American law the right to a jury trial is a due process right that people have and the Bill of Rights for the Constitution for the United States of America, states at Amendment V, “No person shall … be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law….” Furthermore, in US V. RIGSBY the Sixth Circuit Court (1995) in essence says that the requirement that a defendant receives a fair trial by a panel of impartial, that is to say indifferent jurors, is a basic mandate of due process.

When considering the right to due process in the united States of America by definition Black’s Law Dictionary states “It means due process of law warranted by the constitution, by the common law adopted by the constitution, or by statutes passed in pursuance of the constitution. 1 N. H. 53.” See Black’s Law Dictionary, First Edition, page 694.

Also, though one may have the right to a jury trial it is important to note that the courts have said that a mere scintilla of evidence is not really sufficient to submit a case to a jury; see SANJUAN V. IBP, INC. (10th Cir. 1998). So it is key to realize that people have and build a good argument and/or help their counsel do the same.

Judge: No slander in Alec Baldwin's comments on parking spat

Jul 8, 2020

NEW YORK — Alec Baldwin didn't slander a man in interviews about a parking dispute that turned physical, a judge has ruled as dueling lawsuits between the actor and the other driver continue. Baldwin's remarks — including claims that Wojciech Cieszkowski's driving was “really fast,” “really aggressive” and made the actor think his wife and son were about to be run over — were "hyperbole" and "rhetorical illustrations," Manhattan judge David B. Cohen wrote Thursday. “They are words of frustration with someone's driving,” not accusations that amount to slander, Cohen wrote. He tossed out Cieszkowski's slander claim, but his assault...

Innovative fashion designers lead the way on sustainability

Jul 8, 2020

LONDON — Innovative fashion designers are turning to such things as horseradish and nettles to make sustainable clothing and accessories to the delight of a growing number of buyers. While more consumers are paying closer attention to how the production of goods impacts the environment, old habits die hard. A buy-and-toss mentality persists despite a boost from celebrities helping to drive the upcycle and vintage movements. Actress Maggie Q, who created an activewear line from recycled fabrics, is among activists who see plenty of room for improvement. She says she feels "sick about fast fashion.'' "You hear people say, 'Well,...

Jul 8, 2020

NEW YORK — Next year's Met Gala may be the closest we'll ever come to getting a Miranda Priestly moment at the starry event. Meryl Streep has been named as a co-chair of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. The Oscar-winner played Priestly, a thinly veiled fictional version of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, in the movie "The Devil Wears Prada." Wintour clearly has no hard feelings because she selected Streep as a co-chair along with Lin-Manuel Miranda and fellow Oscar-winner Emma Stone. Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere rounds out the group. The gala's theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration," which...
