Week 3 Chapter 7 Review
This discussion consists of three paragraphs, page number 177-190, from Chapter 7- “The Court and Judiciary”.
Chapter 7 acts as a crucial part of this book, as this acknowledges the court and the judiciary. Hence, this chapter consists of the reality of the trial court, which talks about the fascination based on the mundane, that follows a multitude based on the rules and the procedure. Apart from this, I have gained knowledge that stated about the complex and the state levels based on the structure and the jurisdiction. Apart from this, this chapter focuses on the most intriguing part of the criminal justice system, which explains the media’s devotion to criminal trials (Rennison & Dodge p. 177-178). Apart from this, the court system of the United States is based on recognition to determine guilt and innocence. Thus, Sandra Day O’Connor, based on achieving justice which is garnered worldwide respect. Apart from this, I have even learned about Article III, Section I of the Constitution which states about “The judicial Power of the United States” that is vested in the courts which are empowered under the judicial reviews, that eventually allows a higher court to take a decision for the lower courts, and Supreme Court and its authority is based on the Constitutional Law (Rennison & Dodge p. 178-179).
This Chapter often discloses the example of judicial activism under the 1954, Supreme Court, which was developed under Brown v/s Board of Education. Apart from this, this chapter eventually discloses the discrimination that often takes place among blacks and whites, based on the legal notion of Plessy v/s Ferguson. Thus, this chapter discloses that the court took the decision stating about not violating the Fourteenth Amendment, as a result, this resulted in Separate-but-equal doctrine. As per my idea, this chapter discloses the objectives taking place in Obergefell v/s Hodges (2015), which case evolved the notion of the Supreme Court that leads to making a development under the Constitutional Rights on marrying (Rennison & Dodge p. 179-180). This chapter also discloses the Federal and the State Court System, based with the respect of the State Marijuana Laws Act of 2015, under the Bill through the legislative process. Thus, the goal is mainly to resolve a conflict, that allows the use of marijuana to continue a violate the Federal Law (Rennison & Dodge p. 181). This chapter helps me to learn about the different system that consists of the Federal and the state level structure with the special court and unique jurisdiction.
Chapter 7 discloses the court congestion and its consequences, which mentioned that Court Statistics Project reported about the courts which are handled 94 million cases in 2013 (Rennison & Dodge p 185-186). This chapter deals with the role of the judges, as the most authoritarian figure that deals with little tolerance based on any illegal behavior or conducting any courtroom misbehavior. Apart from this, judges are recognized as visible and prominent figures within the courtroom, who have the ability to make decisions that affects one’s everyday life. Therefore, double jeopardy, mainly focuses on the judgment, based on the lighting making a final appeal getting a final judgment on an unfair means (Rennison & Dodge p 190). Hereby, double jeopardy mainly allows the appeal made on one guilty verdict on forming a violation. Thus justice court is more likely to be accommodating among the people, based on different people and the offenders to rehabilitate the goals of the suspect within a system (Rennison & Dodge p 196).
