Q: 

What was the finding of in trial court and appellate court in the mcculloch v. maryland court case?

A:  The trial court and appeals court both held that the Tenth Amendment to the US Constitution - ''The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.'' - meant that the Federal government did not have the legal power to create a bank and exempt it from State taxes, since the Constitution did not ''specifically'' delegate that power to it. The Supreme court, however, overturned the lower courts, on the basis that ''The power to tax is the power to destroy.'', and that allowing an individual State to tax the Federal government would therefore give the State the...

Q: 

TX Small Claims court case...service question

A:  So the incident happened in Tarrant county but the defendant lives in Smith county. That is why you filed the suit in Tarrant and the papers must be served in Smith. If that is not the case then reply back. I would say that file right away in the county where the agreement or injury took place and it is up to the file date. Besides guy you are suing has to object in court that it is beyond the statute of limitations anyways which he might not do even if it was more than 2 years. Tour real problem is how are you going to collect the money if you win? You see after you win you still have to go back to court and file one of several ways to get your money. So ask yourself this.

Q: 

Was the Arizona court case unconstitutional, since they should have been in the US Supreme court?

A:  The lawsuit did not NAME Arizona as a defendant party but rather the Governor and the Attorney General. Also, if the defense of jurisdiction is not pleaded in the answer, it may be waived. Similarly, the State of Arizona cannot be sued in federal court under the Eleventh Amendment. Granting the Supreme court original jurisdiction does NOT deny lower courts jurisdiction. The clause you mention DENIES the Supreme court original jurisdiction in cases NOT covered. Congress is also given the authority to make exceptions to this clause. Source:Article III, Section 2, Paragraph 2. NO, it is not unconstitutional at all...

Q: 

Do his speeding tickets still count against him if he won the court case?

A:  Massachusetts considers driving a privilege, not a right, and will suspend that privilege without due process. For example, if a cop pulls you over and you refuse to take a field breath test, your license is automatically suspended for 180 days - not by the courts, but by the DMV - even if you are acquitted of OUI. So although it seems wrong, the DMV may very well include tickets that the court has dismissed under whatever arbitrary suspension rules it has. According to this page at dmv.org: Accumulate five or more in within three years and you''ll be facing a choice of driver retraining school or immediate license suspension. Get seven incidents in three years, and you automatically lose your license. On the other hand, this page at the...
