Q: 

What is the difference between a Judge and a Jury?

A:  NO I can''t help you. If this is how you are "studying" for your citizenship exam... I''d rather not be a part of it. Are you serious? A judge is a judge and a jury is a jury. Same thing with the moon and the sun. The moon is the moon and the sun is the sun. A judge is 1, a jury is 12 in most courts. A judge addresses matters of law. A jury addresses matters of fact. A judge is a person with a law license (graduated law school and practiced as an attorney). A judge is an expert in law and determines how the law will apply in court cases. A jury is a panel of citizens. These citizens are not experts in the law. The judge will instruct the jury how to interpret the law. The jury will also determine, after hearing all of the evidence, whether a defendant is guilty of a crime (in a...

Q: 

What is the difference between an residence card (i-551) and an employment authorization card?

A:  Well we''re missing some details, what is your current status here? What is the basis of your Employment Authorization Card? The I-551 is the green card, and if you have a green card, you obviously don''t need the work permit/EAD. You can see the I-551 Permanent Resident Card (green card) here: http://rapidvisa.com/rapidvisa_blog/post… And the redesigned I-766 Employment Authorization Card here: Yes the fuel pump. Same thing happened to me in my 95 Jeep Cherokee. Possibly the timing belt, but i''d bet it''s the fuel pump. Also check your spark plugs, wires, and dist cap. Good luck....

Q: 

What is the difference between "prosecute" and "sue"?

A:  The state or government can prosecute you for breaking the law. Individuals sue someone else for damages incurred. Generally, the police will ''prosecute'' someone charged with a criminal act in a criminal court. If the person charged is found guilty by a court of law, he may be fined or imprisoned. A citizen may ''sue'' or ''file suit'' against another person or a corporation in civil court. If the ''plaintiff'' or ''complainant'' (the person who filed suit) wins the law suit in a court of equity, (civil court) that person may be awarded monetary damages or some other thing such as a divorce, child custody, etc. Prosecute means the government is proving that you...

Q: 

What Is the difference Between Admiralty and Maritime Law?

A:  The difference between admiralty and maritime law has historically been that admiralty law was limited to disputes involving torts and contracts on the high seas. Maritime law gradually developed to include all other types of legal disputes that arose on the high seas and other navigable waters. Torts are legal wrongs, and the term ''high seas'' refers to oceans beyond the territorial jurisdiction of a country. Navigable waters generally are any body of water that functions as a highway for commerce between countries or states. The distinction between admiralty and maritime law faded with time and U.S. courts now use the terms interchangeably. Admiralty law in the U.S. evolved from England. American colonies initially had vice admiralty courts that derived their...

Q: 

What Is the difference Between Criminal Law and civil Law?

A:  Many people are familiar with criminal law because of the media coverage surrounding infamous cases, but people are less knowledgeable about civil law, or tort law. Typically, unless a person is an attorney or personally involved in the court case, the differences between civil or criminal law can be obtuse. There are several distinctions between civil and criminal law, including the type of crime, who files the lawsuit, punishments and the burden of proof. Basically, criminal law is for violations of statutory crime and punishment, and civil law deals with non-criminal disagreements. Criminal law usually involves...

Q: 

What Is the difference between Copyright and Trademark?

A:  The difference between copyright and trademark is straightforward, though the terms are often used interchangeably and this can make the distinction somewhat muddied in common usage. A copyright is a type of intellectual property protection that covers works of art and similar things. This includes writing, illustrations, music, films, and just about any other artistic expression of ideas or concepts. A trademark protects a name brand or logo that is used in a commercial application to distinguish one company from another. One of the easiest ways to distinguish between copyright and trademark, and to identify which is appropriate at any given time, is to consider the type of intellectual property being protected. If it is a work of art, then it is likely it is...

Q: 

In Law, What is the difference Between Parol Evidence and Extrinsic Evidence?

A:  There are two major rules to follow when it comes to contracts and contract law. One is to get everything in writing, and the other is to know exactly what you are signing. Should a contract dispute result in the filing of a civil lawsuit, the written word often supersedes any oral or implied agreement. This is the basis for what is known in contract law as the parol evidence rule. Under common law, parol evidence such as a signed contract is considered to be ''fully integrated,'' meaning it is the last and most official form of a binding agreement. This parol evidence rule can be legally challenged, however, by the presentation of extrinsic evidence in court. Extrinsic evidence might include oral changes to the...

Q: 

What Is The difference Between Trial Court And Appeals Court?

A:  The difference between trial court and appeals court is that in a trial court, it is the original case. In an appeals court, the defendent or plantiff has filed for a retrial of the case. An example of an appeals court is the U. S. Supreme Court, as controversial trials are often sent for a retrial there....

Q: 

What Is the difference Between Bail And Bond?

A:  The difference between bail and bond is in the method in which an individual pays, or secures, an amount of money — set by a court — in order to be released from jail. Bail is the total fee paid, in cash, to the court for a defendant’s release while awaiting trial. Bond is a type of credit, or insurance policy, purchased from a bail bondsman, who posts the money on behalf of the accused. At the conclusion of a trial, the entire bail amount is returned, while a bond fee is forfeited, usually 10% of the original amount. When a suspect is arrested, a judge frequently issues a bail amount, or a fee that the defendant can pay to the court for his or her temporary release from jail, pending a court appearance. The price the judge sets for bail is predicated...

Q: 

What Is the difference Between Robbery and Burglary?

A:  Robbery and burglary are often confused with each other. Although both of these crimes are associated with theft, burglary does not always involve stolen property or the intent to steal anything. An individual committing robbery steals something from someone by using force or intimidation. Burglary involves breaking into a building with the intent to commit a crime. Because of the difference between robbery and burglary, a person can be charged with both crimes for one incident. In the United States, robbery is often considered to be a felony, and it can result in serving time in a state or federal prison. Robbery involves taking something valuable and using force, or the threat of force, to do so. Armed robbery involves the use of a weapon. The similar, but more...
