Q: 

How do I remove a case in Federal court to the U.S. supreme court? It involves an incarcerated consul general

A:  There are very few cases where the supreme court has original jurisdiction and in some of those, jurisdiction is now concurrent with district courts by statute. In other words, you can file a motion in district court to suggest that original jurisdiction is in the supreme court and ONLY in the supreme court, but I''m betting you will not be successfull. The supreme court is only likely to hear this case on a petition for writ of certiorari after an Appeals court...

In the first place, she is a minor, and something like that should have been discussed with her parents before even thinking about a strip search.

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,...

How many people do trained snipers kill on average?

A:  The average is close to zero. Snipers are primarily recon, but during conflicts like today there being used to over watch troop movements. The average sniper just like the average soldier may not even be engaged in direct fire. But then again it depends on your unit/mos. Scriney if you think about the amount of innocent civilians that taliban terrorists kill what`s a few dead one`s matter the sniper is trained to kill quickly and cleanly plus they go through psychological training too so he will not be worrying about it. to him as well as ordinary soldiers this is just another war.

He said he felt bad every time he pulled the trigger because the man he just killed didn''t have a chance to defend himself....

Q: 

Having A Case Filed For A year

A:  "since i wasn't fingerprinted does this show up on a criminal background check " Quite likely. Printing is a part of the arrest process. It isn't a mandatory part, and it doesn't change the validity of the arrest. "second. since it was filed for a year does that make it less then a misdemeanor " The time would normally have nothing to do with the 'level' of the charge. About the only thing less than a misdemeanor is a civil infraction. Disorderly might be that. "and is there a waiting period for expungement" Nobody from RI is on the boards....
