Q: 

article I section 8 of the constitution limits the power and authority of Congress to the 10 square mile that is Washington DC and to the properties purchased from the States for military bases, ports and buildings. So why do we have a Congress that thinks it has authority over the States?

A:  Because article 1, section 8 makes no such limitation on the power and authority of Congress? Read the whole section. It''s a list of about 50 enumerated powers beginning with, ''The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; . . .'' and goes on from there with 17 more clauses of listed powers. In fact the very clause that you are basing your misinterpretation on ends with the words, ''dock-Yards and other needful Buildings; AND'' (emphisis on AND added). It is then followed by: ''To make all

Specimens for Sec 8 and 9 Declarations

A:  That''s an interesting question, and one I''ve never faced.  I did a quick search through the TTAB caselaw, but found no case on point.  Reading between the lines, my concern relates to the reason for the question, that is, why are you concerned about when you used your mark?  Had it not been used for some time including during the section 8 period?  If so, what kind of use do you have now, token or bona fide? In any event, you will have to file based on the best use you have, whether that is during the grace period or during the section 8 window. - Jeff Thanks, Jeff.  The use is bona fide, but just did not occur until  the 6-month grace period clock began running.  My concern...

Q: 

I was wondering what the statute of limitations for grand theft of the third degree is in Florida? I have been getting conflicting answers. The case involves about $10,000 obtained through fraudulent means. Some lawyers have told us that in Florida the limitation is three years, and others five. I also believe there is a clause stating that an additional three years can be added due to fraud, which I am attaching. Also does the statute of limitations begin when the crime was committed or discovered? Thank you.(12) If the period prescribed in subsection (2), subsection (8), subsection (9), subsection (10), or subsection (11) has expired, a prosecution may nevertheless be commenced for:(a) Any offense, a material element of which is either fraud or a breach of fiduciary obligation, within 1 year after discovery of the offense by an aggrieved party or by a person who has a legal duty to represent an aggrieved party and who is himself or herself not a party to the offense, but in no case shall this provision extend the period of limitation otherwise applicable by more than 3 years.

A:  I''ve answered this question already but you need to look at F.S. 812.035(10) which I will paste here: 10) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, a criminal or civil action or proceeding under ss. 812.012-812.037 or s. 812.081 may be commenced at any time within 5 years after the cause of action accrues; however, in a criminal proceeding under ss. 812.012-812.037 or s. 812.081, the period of limitation does not run during any time when the defendant is continuously absent from the state or is without a reasonably ascertainable place of abode or work within the state, but in no case shall this extend the period of limitation otherwise applicable by more than 1 year. I understand your confusion but even some...

Q: 

I have a question involving the statute of limitations for larceny that was committed due to a fraudulent application. I believe that larceny of around over $1000 is a third degree felony in Florida (correct me if I am wrong) and the statute of limitations for a felony of this degree is 3 years in Florida. I am not sure if this clause would apply to the larceny statue of limitations because it was committed due to fraud. So I guess my question is what would be the statute of limitations for larceny committed due to fraud? does this mean that the statute of limitations cannot be extended past three years from a time when the crime was committed or does it mean three years from which time the crime was discovered? Thank you very much!(12) If the period prescribed in subsection (2), subsection (8), subsection (9), subsection (10), or subsection (11) has expired, a prosecution may nevertheless be commenced for: (a) Any offense, a material element of which is either fraud or a breach of fiduciary obligation, within 1 year after discovery of the offense by an aggrieved party or by a person who has a legal duty to represent an aggrieved party and who is himself or herself not a party to the offense, but in no case shall this provision extend the period of limitation otherwise applicable by more than 3 years.

A:  Statute of limitations almost always run from the date of offense. However, theft and larceny have their own statute of limitations and it is 5 years, not 3....

Q: 

Can someone clarify what this means. I have read that the statute of limitations for a first degree misdemeanor in Florida is 2 years but there is this clause applying to fraud. does this mean that it cannot be extended past three years from a time when the crime was committed or does it mean three years from which time the crime was discovered?''(12) If the period prescribed in subsection (2), subsection (8), subsection (9), subsection (10), or subsection (11) has expired, a prosecution may nevertheless be commenced for: (a) Any offense, a material element of which is either fraud or a breach of fiduciary obligation, within 1 year after discovery of the offense by an aggrieved party or by a person who has a legal duty to represent an aggrieved party and who is himself or herself not a party to the offense, but in no case shall this provision extend the period of limitation otherwise applicable by more than 3 years.''

A:  Any fraud or theft, including misdemeanors, is covered under a different statute of limitations. It is 5 years from the date of offense for the state to file charges....
