Pag* 2 — Annotations — Saptanribor 1977 m HBATo Set Ad Standards by Kim Battaglini Staff Writer Of increasing interest to future lawyers is the mounting contro- versy of advertising by lawyers. The present legal establishment is vigorously opposed to legal advertising. But a few daring attorneys, prompted by the U.S. Supreme Court's recent decision, have utilized the media to promote their services. In the Houston area, law students are aware of recent ads for legal services in the daily newspapers and on at least one television station. The ads are popping up all across the country. Most deal with routine legal services, such as "uncontested divorce, simple adoption, uncon- tested personal bankruptcy, change of name, and the like," which the Supreme Court out- lined in its June 27, 5-4 decision, styled John R. Bates and Van O'Steen v. State Bar of Arizona. As a reaction to both the Supreme Court ruling and the subsequent emergence of legal advertising, the State Bar of Texas Board ...

Also, many Heights residents contend that market values in the Heights areas are artificially high and don't reflect things such as poor street and sewer maintenance and poor police protection, thus causing overvaluation. A more obvious abuse of the equal and uniform requirement is the one that is in the best interests of only a few powerful corporations involved in the ship channel. In 1967, the City of Houston made contracts with 85 corporations on the ship channel which put them into a special tax district outside the city limits. The contracts included a tax moratorium on improvements for five years, a total tax exemption for ten years on inventories, and a guarantee not to annex for ten years. The Houston Post has stated that these contracts cost Houston as much as $12 million per year in tax revenues. I've yet to hear of a Houston homeowne...

Pag« 4 — Annotations — Soptombor 1977 Magistrate Blask Continued from page 3 responsibility will last. It will just be one that we will have to per- form in addition to our other duties. Q. How would this treaty affect an American getting arrested in Mexico in the future? Would he be taken before a magistrate in the U.S.? A. I'm not at this point that familiar with the treaty and cannot say that this treaty would apply to all Americans arrested by Mexican authorities here and after. I'm more inclined to think that there is a time parameter. Q. The fact that these prisoners are serving time under the Mexican law, would they be serving the same amount of time that's in accordance with Mexican law when they come over here or would it all of a sudden commute to the penalty under U.S. law? A. I've read this treaty briefly and it is my impression that at the time that they return to the U.S. they would be serving the same sentence that they were serving in Mexico. This is a transfer of lo...

Victor Bono was convicted for the murders of two U.S. Customs agents who caught Bono bringing narcotics into California from Mexico. Mysteriously enough Bono ably reversed the situation overcoming the agents. He pro- ceeded to chain the two agents to a stove, torture them, and as a grand finale, shot them to death. He's serving two consecutive life sentences and resides within the maximum security unit known as the Control Unit in the Marian Federal Penitentiary. Bono's cell has about 50 square feet of floor space, making his cell about the same size as the standard dog kennel, only the cell has a ceiling eight feet high.

September 1977 — Annotations — Page 7 *r n: Casenote Corner that because of lack of precision or qualification as to meaning, the exclusions will not be subject to the interpretation which has so expanded the substantive appli- cation of the evidentiary rule of res gestae. Two clauses will particularly require judicial interpretation. The first phrase in the above quoted section is a statement that does not stem from custodial interrogation. This exclusion certainly might include unsolicit- ed, voluntary statements prior to arrest but as the criteria of voluntariness is not specified, it could more broadly include exculpatory statements which are not res gestae. The second is the phrase a voluntary statement, whether or not the result of custodial interrogation, that has a bearing upon the credibility of the accused as a witness. As mentioned, this appears to be a legislative determination to over- rule Butler v. State.[30] The Court in Butler indicated that its concern with the use...

Property Revaluation "Unequal" in Houston by Andy Norman Staff Writer If you own real property in Houston you will be interested in a current movement aimed at reforming property taz assess- ments in the city. This movement has been led by a group called ACORN (Texas Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now). ACORN has offices in several states and offers its organizational talents to neigh- borhood groups that hope to effect change in their neighbor- hoods. The Texas Constitution re- quires that all property be taxed on an "equal and uniform basis" and in proportion to fair market value. The taxes levied are to be equal for equal amount of taxable value within and among al...

1303 San Jacinto St. Houston, Taxas 77002 ANNOTATIONS VoUat VI, Issue No.3 October 1977 >4 ♦ Consumer Report, Legal Analysis... Tenant Now Consumer-Caveat Landlord by Andy Norman Staff Writer In the United States, the legal relationships between landlord and tenant has traditionally been governed by laws that are archaic when examined in the light of the needs and interests of modern society. With varying degrees of success, most states have at- tempted to bring landlord-tenant law into present day focus. The states becoming successful have managed to reduce the sizeable advantages that landlords have enjoyed over their tenants. Unfortunately, Texas has not been amongst the successful. Several statutes have been passed in Texas to protect tenants, and Texas courts have struck down several abusive practices exercised by landlords. After all this, though, the Texas landlord-tenant laws have re- mained stacked heavily in favor of the landlord. The legal problems faced by tenants hav...

Pago 2 — Annotations — Will Texas Courts Allow T.V. Cameras? by Peter Johnson Co-Editor The Judicial Code of Ethics of the American Bar Association (ABA), adopted by the state of Texas, prohibits "broadcasting, televising, recording or taking pictures" in the courtroom while court is in session. There are a few exceptions if the purpose is judicial adminis- tration, ceremonial (such as naturalization), or where the judge deems "appropriate" to do so. This last exception has its limits because there can be no reproduction until after appeal, and all parties must consent in writing. The use is therefore restricted to educational institu- te light of the limits set, it is no surprise that one never sees even educational films of actual court- room confrontations. You can hardly blame a judicial officer who enjoys his post to chance overexercising his discretion in these times of ethical turmoil within the legal profession. - A thorough examination of this canon raises several issues in...

The special admissions pro- gram on the other hand is limited to those who seek admission as disadvantaged students and therefore different criteria for selection is used. Under this program an applicant is reviewed to see if he had been granted a waiver of the application fee, whether he had participated in programs for the disadvantaged in the past, and whether he had worked during school. The occu- pational background and educa- tion of his parents is also re- viewed. Furthermore, an appli- cant to this program is not summarily rejected if his G.P.A. is below 2.5. Bakke's grade point average was 3.51 and he had a combined numerical rating that was 30 points higher than some appli- cants who were admitted under the special admissions program. The trial court concluded that Bakke had been the victim of "invidious" race discrimination, but refused to orde...

Senior law student Evan B. Glick said that every effort will be made to insure adequate student feedback regarding the speakers' program. "Since the proposal for in- creased student activity fees for the funding of the program must be made to the STCL Board of Trustees, there must be a clear indication of strong student support. "I am confident that the student body will respond affir- matively to this idea if given enough information upon which to base a judgment. Primarily, we are going to have to rely on word-of-mouth advertising to spread the word about the STLF," said Glick. The Student Bar Association (SBA) endorsed the concept of STLF at its September meeting by passing a resolution of initial support. The SBA res...

In Eggemeyer v. Eggemeyer[2], the Supreme Court of Texas settled this issue of the propriety of divestiture of separate property by stating that "The fee to the separate property . . . may not be divested."[3] By implication one might now wonder if this nondivestiture rule, which was heretofore directed only to real property, is not...
