Q: 

Briefly identify the U.S. supreme court findings in the case of Fare v. Michael C

A:  This case, decided in 1979, has to do with the rights of juvenile criminal defendants.  Specifically, it is about Miranda rights and juvenile suspects.  In this case, the court ruled that a juvenile accused had effectively waived his Miranda rights by asking for his probation officer. In this case, the juvenile, when arrested, asked to see his probation officer before he would answer police questions.  The police told him he could not.  He then consented to answer questions without his probation officer present.  The supreme court ruled that the juvenile was aware enough of his rights and that his asking for the probation officer was essentially the same as asking for a lawyer.  Therefore,...

Q: 

Did the founders of the Constitution intend for supreme court Justices to serve for life? (How long do you think they should serve?)

A:  The Framers did intend those that serve on in the Judicial Branch to serve in that capacity for life.  Naturally, the legislative branch can impeach a Justice should there be any wrong doing or breaking of the law.  Yet, in the larger sense the Justices are meant to serve for life.  There are a couple of potential reasons for this . The first would be that the Executive and Legislative Branch members serve at the behest of the public.  Being dependent on the principle of popular soverignty, these individuals are policy makers who are responsive to the needs and demands of the public.  This is different in the Judicial Branch, who is seen as the guardians of the Constitution.  This capacity is not contingent on the public, as the Justices are not in the function of...

Q: 

Which are the United States supreme court functions?

A:  The supreme court has two fundamental functions. On the one hand, it must interpret and expound all congressional enactments brought before it in proper cases; in this respect its role parallels that of the state courts of final resort in making the decisive interpretation of state law. On the other hand, the supreme court has power (superseding that of all other courts) to examine federal and state statutes and executive actions to determine whether they conform to the U.S. Constitution. When the court rules against the constitutionality of a statute or an executive action, its decision can...

Q: 

Request the High court to take all endeavours for early disposal of the criminal appeal pending before it mean?

A:  From the limited information given in the Question, my guess is that the SLP must have been filed for quicker disposal of the pending case before High court, maybe asking decision by a particular date or within a set time frame. By dismissing the SLP, the supreme court has refused to direct the High court to decide the case in a fixed time limit. The direction given is more of a general nature to decide the case early. Unless the High court was making any unnecessary or deliberate delay, such type of order isn''t really going to be of much help in the final disposal of the case. Could possibly give you a better answer if you provide the SLP number. Ok, I saw the...

Q: 

Is the Arizona immigration law unconstitutional?

A:  This is going to be one for the courts, specifically the supreme court. Most of the furor and loud arguments on both sides have little or nothing to do with the actual constitutional issue. The part of the Constitution which is the foundation for Immigration policy is Article I Section 8. In that article the Federal government is charged with creating a uniform Naturalization law. So, this is one of the Enumerated Powers that the Federal Government has, and it has been interpreted as covering Immigration law generally. But, before you say open and shut case, read the rest of the sentence. It also says that the Federal government is to create a uniform Bankruptcy

Q: 

For Iowans, Don't you just love your state supreme court?

A:  A question of fundamental rights is NOT for the people to decide. If it was for the voters to decide, schools would still be segregated by law, women might not have the right to vote, etc. What if there was a ballot initiative to get rid of public religion, i.e. people could not go to church or be openly religious because 51% of the population thinks it''s a bunch b.s.? I bet you would be hoping that the supreme court stepped in then to preserve your rights.... Anyway, rights are not about public opinion, rights should be guaranteed to each and every citizen. Gay people should not have to suffer because you don''t like how they have sex... Apologies...but people against gay marriage are just ignorant. If you...
