July 1978 — Annotations — THE REAL WORLD OSHA Armed With Blank Search Warrcnts? By Seward B. Snell * ► « It v * _ *■ 4 ♦ * ♦ . Editor's Notes Professor Snell has agreed to write a monthly column for Annotations. He is witty and often sarcastic. Snell, an adjunct professor, has re- ceived a B.S. and B.A. from Northwestern University, an M.A. from Columbia University, and a LL.B. from Harvard Uni- versity. The United States Supreme Court's long awaited decision in the much touted Barlow Case on the right to make unannounced inspections without a search warrant in Occupational Safety and Health Administration's pro- gram of investigations was a Solomon-like pronouncement. Barlow, a "liberal John Bircher" by his own admission, was raised on the United States Constitution, it would seem. When OSHA showed up at his plumbing shop and demanded access, he de- manded to see their search warrant. From there the chase was on, or the battle "joined" as knights of old would declare. The United St...

Pag« a — Annotation — Jgjy 1978 Jaworski: Free Trial v. Free Press Fair Trial For Nixon Possible? By Leon JawonU Note: The Annotations expresses gratitude to Mr. Ja- worski for the permission to print this speech delivered May 8,1978 to the Press Gub of Houston. We regretfully note that this speech was edited for publication space. In Watergate I thought the press fulfilled its responsibilities admirably. It created a public awareness that was very essential to getting the job done. At times there arises a clash between the constitutional forces of (a) fair trial and (b) free press, which creates a dilemma. An example of a potential dilemma turned out to be hypothetical, but it could have been real. Suppose President Ford had not pardoned Richard Nixon and eventually an indictment of him had been returned. Could he have received a fair trial? If so, under what cir- cumstances? The problem was created by the exercise of the constitutional guaranty of freedom of the press and the publ...

July 1978 - P®fl« • Jaworskí Advertising :1\ i Whether the reporting of the events involved in these stories was accurate is not the point. Grand juries come from all walks of life and are fair-minded people. They are subject to the same emotions and human reactions that visit you and me. It is very difficult for prosecutors not to be affected subconsciously by emo- tions and fired-up feelings in the community. There is a whipping-up of frenzy while the grand jury is engaged in weighing the facts and while prosecutors are under- taking to express impartial views to the grand jury. To add to the burden, officers under investiga- tion were given the choice of resigning or being fired — at the time the grand jury was still in the process of trying to determine whether indictments should be returned and if so against whom. All but one officer refused to resign and the four refusing were promptly dismissed. The dismis- sals were reported on the front page of local newspapers and carried ...

10 — Annotations — July 197ft Asbestos!s: Irreversible, Often Fatal "The end result of asbestosis is a building up of asbestos fibers in tiie lungs creating a tough, fibrous shell which restricts the and contraction of the lung to such an extent that air cannot be effectively brought into the kings and the patient eventu- ally dies of suffocation." The above account was made by. Dr. William Waidhofer, a resident at the Texas Medical Goiter. He described this disease as incurable, irreversible, dis- abling and often fatal. It develops gradually and usually does not manifest itself until ten or 20 years after exposure even though ly have been as short is caused by the inhalation of asbestos dust and fibers. The term "asbestos" itself refers to a group of fibrous minerals with unique heat- resistant properties that are used in over 3,000 products, ranging nose cone of a missle; tings for cars; ironing board covers; draperies; cement; asbestos sheeting; pipes; pipe insulation; floor, wa...

July 1978 — Annotations - Pago 11 Personal Injury Primer By Cari Waldman Editor's Note: Carl Waldman is a senior partner with the firm of Waldman and Smallwood in Beaumont, Texas. He has been in civil litigation for over 30 years. Your approach to law has to be on a common-sense basis. The law is based on justice which is a fancy way of saying "doing what's right." If you step báck from your problems and ask yourself what really ought to be done, you will probably come up with the right answer nine times out of ten. The real problem occurs when your common sense answer and research tells you you're on the wrong side of the fence. When that occurs, you use all your skills to espouse your cause but bail out at the most opportune time. Don't press your luck too far. Don't be greedy. Treat your simple cases simply and spend your time on the meritorious matters. Many law- yen (including the writer) waste considerable time trying to make silk purses out of sow's ears. Use your time wisely...

* n k \ * * * 1303 San Jacinto St. Houston, Texas 77002 ANNOTATIONS Volume VII, Number 2 August 1978 Now By Choice: Women In Family Law By Jerill Romeo Little Staff Writer "There are many lawyers working in Houston, but unfortunately most of them are working in Family Law." This remark was in response to a question I asked a practicing attorney, who shall remain name- less, regarding the number of women attorneys working in Houston. His answer smacked of the musty smell of historical disdain for divorce, when people only spoke of divorce in hushed tones and the child of a divorced parent apologized for his parents' impropriety for the rest of his life. No profession echoed that contempt to a more celebrated degree than did the legal pro- fession. The large firms on Wall Street and in Washington con- sidered it dirty business and beneath the dignity of the firm. If an associate had the poor taste to find himself in such a position, the case was farmed out to one of those firms that h...

If Judge Roberts in Austin decides to grant the "interpleader filing, we will con- tinue to assert that he has no jurisdiction. If we do not prevail in that jurisdiction on the merits then we will appeal on the grounds that there was no juris- diction to hear the matter. Yon were successful in pie- venting Southwestern Bell from office had the authority to file suit. How did the court justify this The State Supreme Court in that decision based our authority primarily on the constitution of . Texas. The constitution of Texas says that the Attorney General shall take such action as is necessary to prevent the imposi- tion of illegal tariffs on the people. The Supreme Court did not have to reach the issue of whether or not I had common law authority to institute that pro- ceeding. I think that we were on sound ground in asserting our common law authority. I believe ...

August 1878 - ANNOTATIONS - NEW FACULTY Lewis Blends Experience, Treece Offers Effective Mixture Theory To Criminal Justice :r. .t; J By J.G. Trichter Staff Writer "South Texas College of Law (STCL) has the potential to produce the best advocacy team in the country." This belief was recently stated by T. Gerald Treece, STCL new director of advocacy. Treece emphasized that the potential is here' 'all we need to do is develop it." Treece, 32, has been teaching classes in torts on a part-time basis at STCL and Bates College of Law for the past year. Prior to moving to Houston, Treece (a native of Odessa, Texas) resided in Anaheim, Cali- fornia where he taught for four years as an associate professor at Pepperdine University School of Law. While at Pepperdine, he in- structed classes in property, but his speciality was oil and gas and public and private land control. Treece, in addition to teaching at Pepperdine, served as the school's moot court director. An important goal Treece hopes...

Pagt 4 — ANNOTATIONS - August 1978 The State of the Art As An Absolute Defense By Ronald Wardell Notes Ronald WardeU is a third-year student at STCL. He currently works with the law firm of FISHER, ROCH and GAL- LAGHER, which specializes in the area of personal injury and products related cases. The pri- mary purpose of this article is to inform the reader of a vague and misunderstood area of a products liability suit. L STATE OF THE AST DE- FINED The "state of the art" defense is, first and foremost, a products liability doctrine which arguably purports to define a manufac- turer's duty in terms of events and knowledge existing at the date on which the product is manufactured, or marketed, or in the extreme, at the time erf the injury-causing event. Each step away from the actual production of the product increases the burden on the plaintiff to prove a duty, and ultimately, a breach of that duty by the defendant. The state of the art implies "that the product was as safe as scient...

Raborn mentioned that statis- tics made from August, 1976 to August, 1977 showed that more cases were filed in the Family Law Court that were filed in the then 17 District Courts in Houston in total. Mrs. Raborn, in addition to being a lawyer, is a certified public accountant with experience in international public account- ing. Her abilities are beyond the expertise needed in the Family Courts and probably could be doing anything in law that she wants to do today. . This was not the case when she graduated. "Women were unemployable. Nobody would hire us. A few were interviewed by the major firms and some were hired in government. I chose to open my own firm. Most women who have been in law as long as I have, have opened their own practice. I still believe there is discrimina- tion among some of the major firms. For example, some of these f...

Pag® 6 — ANNOTATIONS - August 1978 Editorial Numerical Limitations Restrict Haitians From U.S NO ENTRY! •« ft *- By Philippe Symonovicz Editorial Writer At this moment, off the coast of Florida, tragic events regrettably not given the attention they deserve, are taking place. Hun- dreds of Haitians have attempted and are attempting to enter upon our shores, shores which at one time welcomed our forefathers who also were trying to escape despotism. But the wheel has turned a full circle: the govern- ment of our country is presently contemplating deportation of the Haitians — an inhuman act at best, considering the conditions these people left behind them and those they face if they are to be sent back. "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free the wretched refuse of your teeming shore." Thus reads in put the inscription beneath the Statue of Liberty. For the millions of souls who through- out the last two centuries sought refuge on our shores these ...

August 1978 — ANNOTATIONS — Page 7 It's Not Just A Good Idea, IT'S MY JOB! By Gerald S. Bettman ▼ * * -* * . Studying for a law school exam could be just about the most nerve-racking adventure a person could experience. The period which follows is perhaps worse. It sometimes takes from two weeks to three months to receive a grade from a past exam. Many are not able to sit and wait patiently for those grades. Many wait nervously for that 75 which just may insure another semester at STCL. The complete process is more than a student can bear. The students often scream unan- swered prayers to have their grades returned in a more timely fashion. This tedious wait often serves to fertilize the student's mind with possible ways a professor may be grading his exams. Grafts are drawn to explain bio-rhythms of the pro- fessor's lunar charts. Thusly, predictions are made as to when the exams may be posted by a certain professor. Many students have begun to feel that possibly other techniques h...

August 1978 - ANNOTATIONS - Pag* 9 THE REAL WORLD Bakke — A Judicial Curiosity By Seward B. Snell Gerald Bettman, your peripa- tetic editor, greeted me at the door of the school last night with the shout, "The news is out!" With mind on other things, like 100 other students awaiting me in my classroom with their voracious intellects, the school's counter- part of "Jaws," I dumbly in- quired "What news? "Annota- tions" was the prompt response and with a flourish, he handed me six copies. "But I can only read one," I protested. "Give them to your family and Mends, that is, if you have any 1" (Tried on my number one son, this produced only an extremely pained look. Guess again honorable boss man.)

Kirk Brush, a STCL graduate and faculty member, explained his victorious decision in his first district level civil trial when his client was awarded a $100,000 judgment in a false imprisonment action against Kroger Company. "I was really very lucky. I don't by any means claim that it was any ¿eat expertise, because it wasn't," said Brush who has only been in practice for a year and a half. Brush admitted the first thing he did was to "luck into the case." "I still don't know how I got the case," he recalled. "An attorney I happen to know just handed me the file, asked me to look at it, and told me if I thought it was worth anything, I could be lead counsel in the case." Brush explained that...
