October 1999 Features Page 5 The Gist of It - Lights, Camera, Action? By Judge Larry Gist Guest Writer Dt 'uring the O.J. trial, I called my mother and she was really upset. "What do you think of that judge?" she asked me, and then pro- ceeded (as most mothers do) to tell me in no uncertain terms that she didn't trust Judge Ito. "He lied to us," she said. "He told us that the trial would resume promptly at 2 PM and it's now almost 3 and the trial hasn't started yet!" My mother, like so many others, was glued to the tele- vision watching the trial as the daylong soap opera it was. What did cameras in that courtroom do to educate the public on the true func- tion of a criminal trial? Well, it probably set back public perception for years. But the bigger issue dangles before us all. Should cam- eras be allowed in criminal courtrooms? Now anybody who has ever watched a trial from start to finish knows just how dull and uninteresting the vast majority of the tes- timony is. And I sincere...

Page 6 Features October 1999 Is Root Memorial Considered a Harmless Nuisance? Depends on WHO You Ask By Clay Rooker Staff Writer V^ommuting students at South Texas College of Law have a big concern when the subject is parking. Many want to know if it is safe to park anywhere near Root Memorial Square and whether or not they should be more concerned for their personal safety be- cause of all the vagrants that idle and lounge in the park. "Root Memorial Square is the home to dozens of transients, vagabonds, bums and drunks and it seems to be more of a problem when night falls than during the early morning and day," ac- cording to Officer Richard Duillo, Houston Police De- partment Special Opera- tions Division. Root Memorial is lo- cated one block to the east of the school campus and is bounded by Austin Street on the west, Bell Street on the south, Clay Street on the north, and La Branch Street on the east.

Park from pg. 6 dia Relations, "We are very aware of the vagrancy at Root Memorial, but the park is in a dilapidated area that doesn't affect many busi- nesses or the public in gen- eral so our own Park Rang- ers don't patrol the park for illegal activity or camping."

"You Have To Be Crazy... December 3, 1997 Dear PMBR: I just received my July bar exam results and I am thrilled to report that I achieved a Multistate score of 190 which apparently was the HIGHEST MBE score in Texas. Upon the recommenda- tion of many of my lawyer friends, I took PMBR as a supplement to my general Texas bar review course. The PMBR program was "fantastic", your questions were right- on-target and covered the obscure mortgage and criminal procedure areas that my Texas review course did not address. My recommendation to future law grads is simple: After investing a fortune in your legal education, you have to be crazy not to take PMBR! Thanks for a great course.

Page 4 News November 1999 Alternative Studies for Alternative Lifestyles Take a Front Row Seat at STCL The attention to issues involving sexual orientation appears to have hit an all time high in America. The American media has covered everything from the Matthew Shepard lynching to the Jerry Falwell October summit of healing between conservative Christians and say rights advocates. The internet has been a huge catalyst for the heated debate of issues involving sexual orientation. One of the more trafficked sites is www.godhatesfags.com. This site alone describes gays as "vomit eating dogs worthy of death," even interpreting that the word fag has biblical meaning as the "kindling to fuel the fires of hell." The issue of sexual orientation is also taking a forefront at South Texas. Within the past three months: the college administration has approved an experimental course in sexual orientation and the law, the 14th Court of Appeals has heard oral arguments challenging the constituti...

November 1999 News Page 5 Alternative Lifestyles course with a limit of 20 students. Students in the course will analyze the treatment of sexual orientation in the American legal system. The course is being taught by James Durham, a law librarian and an adjunct legal professor at STCL. Durham, while obtaining his law degree from Ohio State University, attended a sexual orienta- tion seminar taught by Rhonda Rivera. Rivera, a renowned legal scholar on the subject of sexual orientation became one of Durham's mentors dur- ing his law school career. Says Durham, "I want to make Rhonda Rivera proud, knowing that I am passing her philoso- phies to the next generation of law students." While a student at Ohio State, Durham authored several independent study papers in- cluding "Will DOMA be the ENDA Gay Rights?" and "When Espadrilles Become Controversial," a paper on transgendered rights that currently is being used as an information resource tool by an Ohio transgender counseling program. ...

Page 6 Features November 1999 Court Ruling Fires Up Gun Debate By Carrie Holman Staff Writer In an unprecedented move, the First Appellate District of the California Court of Appeals, found that a gun manufacturer could be held liable for the deaths of persons killed in a shooting rampage. Writing the majority opinion in Merrill v. Navegar, Inc., Judge J. An- thony Kline reversed a dis- trict court's summary judg- ment for a defendant gun manufacturer and found it guilty of negligence in pro- ducing so called "assault weapons" whose only con- ceivable use was militaris- tic style killings of multiple people. In light of the onslaught of shooting rampages in re- cent years, the court's deci- sion is especially timely. However, the decision is unsettling for gun rights advocates and brings an even more controversial slant to the question of where the line should be drawn with government gun control. In 1993, Gian Luigi Ferri armed himself with two semiautomatic assault weapons produce...

November 1999 Docket Call Page 7 STCL Bar Passage Rates Down for 3rd Consecutive Summer By Sean Palmer Assistant Editor JL he Texas Board of Law Examiners recently re- leased the July 1999 bar exam results, and for the second summer in a row, South Texas' passage rate has dropped - resulting in an 8.3% decline since 1997. Although the drop could be attributed to recent changes in the essay part of the Texas bar exam, the fact that the overall passage rate for Texas remained constant over last year seems to eliminate this as a factor. At 80 percent, South Texas came out 3% below the Texas average. The results are even more drastic when com- pared with the previous exam, February 1999. The winter exam placed South Texas passage rate at 89.83% . Compared with those results, almost 10% fewer students have passed since the winter. Like several of the lower ranked schools, South Texas administration has been looking for ways to curb the bar passage rate decline. "A few years ago, we passe...

The lecture, which was spon- sored by the International Law Society, gave attendees an inside look at recent de- velopments in the world's second largest country di- rectly from one of it's dip- lomats. Mr. Wangdi described the struggles the country faced in developing its democratic government over the past half century; from its break from British colonial- ism with the civil disobedi- ence movement of Mahatma Ghandi, to its recent disputes with the US over the India's nuclear program. The de- mographics, geographic lo- cation, and sheer size of the Asian country made its de- velopment unique. "To call India a 'country' is the same as calling the equator a 'country'," said Wangdi.

I Came To The United States Four Years Ago... Dear People of PMBR: I am writing this letter in deep appreciation of your help in passing the February Texas Bar Exam. I came to the United States 4 years ago to go to law school. When it comes to my second language English, I always thought of myself as a very slow reader. Naturally, I was extremely worried about the time limitation in completing the MBE. After I took the PMBR three-day course and practiced on the PMBR questions, however, I was surprised to find that I no longer felt serious time pressure. The PMBR course and practice questions truly gave me the realistic picture of precisely what to expect on the MBE. Although my Texas Bar Review course was adequate for the Essays, it was entirely off the mark on the MBE. On the February Texas Bar Exam, I confidently finished each morning and afternoon part of the MBE more than 15 minutes before the call. And I got a MBE score of 174 which was absolutely unthinkable to me before I too...
