Annotations Volume VIII, Number 1 1303 Sen Jacinto St. Houston, Texas 77002 July 1980 Three Fundamental Types Of PL Cases Specialist Fisher Addresses Class There are three types of fundamental defects a plaintiff's attorney looks for in building a products liability case, according to Wayne Fisher, a products liability lawyer and senior partner in the law firm of Fisher, Roche and Gallagher. Fisher, speaking to Dr. Gerald Treece's Products Liability seminar at STCL July 9, told the group the basic defects are found in "manufacturing, design or marketing." The presentation, focusing on developing the plaintiff's stra- tegy, followed a similar presenta- tion earlier in the semester by Knox Nunnally, of Vinson and Elikns, giving the defense's point of view. Fisher, president-elect of the Texas Bar, said discovery is an important key to the plaintiff's case and offered four prongs of attack to follow. "Four things you need to know, and that will aid you immensely when you handle a produ...

Page 4 — ANNOTATIONS - July 1980 >*Kr In With The New The standard tale of shedding the old and donning the new is so old and worn that it should be removed from the list of chiches and subjugated to the deepest, darkest realms of the round file. But, this year seems to be a bit different, no matter your inclinations or your personal likes and dislikes, the new SBA is working. There is no intent to cast those despicable aspersions, since to do so will serve no purpose nor will it make the road ahead any easier to negotiate. However, the SBA has shown that it can succeed, hopefully they'll continue to do so. New programs are being developed, old ones revived and the SBA as a whole seems to be working hard at achieving a common goal—a better STCL. Only time, as the first truth asserts, will tell. Surely, there are personality differences, but then where more than one person is involved there will always be personality differences. Let's fact it, law students are generally supreme e...

July 1980 — ANNOTATIONS — Page 5 4 ♦ M tk New Display Guidelines Set For Bulletin Boards by Frank Stagga Effective July 1, 1980, the SB A Bulletin Board Committee has established new guidelines for the use and display of bulletin boards and announcements, ac- cording to Martin Mayo, commit- tee chairman. The new policies are being distributed to the various school organizations who regularly use the bulletin boards. Organiza- tions with permanent boards are urged to use them as much as possible. Any posters which are to be placed in the restrooms, on walls or areas other than bulletin boards must still be approved by Mrs. Heaton in the Dean's office. Students may place personal want-ads on 3x5 cards only, which must be dated and removed within three weeks. There will be a designated "Greensheet-type" board for student use. Cards are to be posted, using only thumb tacks, in an orderly manner without overlap. The SBA committee in charge of the bulletin boards will regular- ly monitor ...

Page ® — ANNOTATIONS — July 1960 Profiles on Parade Platforms, Promises of SBA Officers Every spring, ten students are elected to sit on the Board of Governors of the Student Bar Association. What follows is a sketch of the views, platforms and promises of most of the present Board members drawn from a recent survey. In the coming year it might prove interesting to refer back to the positions our elected student leaders held when we first elected them and compare with the positions they hold at any particular moment. GUS HADDAD, Vice-President Haddad proposed some very specific goals for his tenure on the SBA. He vowed to attack the "parking ticket dilemma"; to set up new intramural and student outline programs; to develop a quick student directory; to estab- lish a first aid station; to improve communication lines between the administration and the students, STCL exposure, STCL recruiting program and SBA social events. WES JOHNSON, Treasurer Johnson ran unopposed. His platform was ...

July 1960 - ANNOTATIONS — SBA SPEAKS Haddad Outlines Accomplishments by Gna Haddad Having returned from their after-finals break last spring, the newly elected Board of Governors of the SBA took their representative offices with a vibrantly positive attitude, one geared for success. Thus far, these elected officers and representa- tives have shown an inordinately great amount of respect and concern for the responsibilities which their respective offices bear. It is important to note that this, in itself, shows a marked difference with past student administrations. There is a sense of unity, fellowship and camaraderie, a feeling that this Board will accomplish many things which other Boards have been unable to achieve. Initiallty, the new members met at an informal gathering in May at the home of Larry Hatley and Gus Haddad, president and vice-president respec- tively. At this meeting, general guidelines were laid out and a discussion of past problems showed that this Board would wor...

Page 2 — ANNOTATIONS — August-September 1980 Hatley Discusses Wins and Losses by Frank Sta«g When the meeting is gavelled to order by the organization's president, those present obvious- ly hope the meeting will be short and to the point. But they, like the president, probably know otherwise: there are too many items on—and off—the agenda which need attention. The Board of Governors, various ex-officio representatives, and assorted on- lookers, are about to discuss the affairs of the Student Bar Asso- ciation. The chair of the Board of Governors is presently filled by Larry Hatley, who, prior to being elected SBA president, served as treasurer of the SBA and chair- man of the intramural committee. Hatley ran on a platform which stressed the need for increased exposure of STCL in the legal community; a more active campus recruiting program; various pro- grams to alleviate the pereneal student parking problem; prompt publication of a student directory; and a continued intramural pro- ...

That's a question you don't hear much anymore. After all, little ol' STCL just won a national championship. We're now in the same league as anybody you can think of, actually we're now out of just about anybody you can think of s league. Our Advocacy program has gone beyond the dreams of everyone. Dean Walker has said our Advocacy program was respectable before, always placing somewhere but not really doing anything outstanding. A change has occured. Whether it was Dr. T. Gerald Treece, a better crop of students to choose from or just dumb lude, it has been far beyond what any of the opponents ever expected. Who are these fast-talking wonders?

August-September 1980 - ANNOTATIONS - Pafle 5 y i Af T Why is Carter Running? by John Sanders One of the questions I have asked myself over the past few months is why? Why is Jimmy Carter running for reelection? There are the easy and obvious answers, power, prestige, money, but these are not satisfying enough when one considers the entire picture. With rampant inflation and high unemploy- ment, Mr. Carter has one of the lowest job approval ratings in recent history. Our foes hold Mr. Carter in open comtempt and our allies question his ability to lead. In every article, editorial and interview, words such as honest, decent and truthful are used to describe Mr. Carter's performance, but the one word that permeates them all is incompetent. Admittedly Mr. Carter came into office at a difficult time and has been faced by difficult problems, but that is the unique nature and challenge of the job. In 1976 Mr. Carter assured us he was qualified to handle the job. He has had some successes ...

Pao© 6 — ANNOTATIONS — August-September 1980 Mock Trial Team Wins Nationals Presenting the defense in their trial, they had the dubious dishonor of representing the defendant in a personal injury case where a baby was burned by a hot water heater. Bertrand thought all along that if they could have one of the, supposedly defective, water heaters in the courtroom, it would "really be effective." She had contacted the manufacturer and a distributor in Dallas and had hopes of having them supply one for the trial. "We got in late Thursday night, and were tired already," she says. Then Friday she found out that the legal department of the manufacturer had decided it was best not to tempt the fates of adverse publicity, and backed out. So she and Lamar McCorkle, alternate team member and team witness, took off about Montreal in serach of a gas water heater. After several hours of hunting, persuading and hoping they were able to get a plumber to deliver and pick-up a water heater for them. ...

August-September 1980 — ANNOTATIONS - Page 7 v. *r SAB Gears Up For Fall Competitions The Student Advocacy Board is maintaining its fast paced ap- proach to advocacy competitions this fall at STCL. There are three separate intramural competitions scheduled that are presently the main focus of the SAB. Two of these will send the winners on to regional, and hopefully the national finals. The Garland R. Walker Mock Trial competition, tenatively scheduled for November 3, is a simulated trial court proceeding, which saw last year's winners advance through the regionals and on to the national championship in Montreal, Canada. Student di- SAB meetings draw most members. STCL Sends 2 Teams to Nationals in S.F.

8 — ANNOTATIONS - August-September 1960 Honor Court Hears First Case by Associate Justice During this past summer, a South Texas College of Law student was tried and found guilty of a primary violation of the Honor Code. The result was that he was suspended from school for two years. This first year student was gravely affected by the procedure and provisions of an often ignored and little known document called the Honor Code. The Code covered the entire proceedings from the initial filing of the complaint by two students to the final review by Dean Walker. This article is the first of a series explaining the Honor Code. It is our hope that students will become more aware of the Code since it affects not only them, but their fellow students and ulti- mately the legal profession as a whole. In this case, as in all cases, the proceeding began with the filing of a written complaint. The Chief Prosecutor of the Honor Court at that time, Tom Swanson, deter- mined that there was sufficien...

August-September 1960 — ANNOTATIONS — Pape 9 t - Peggy Fortner Hustles STCL Placement Director Speaks "There has been a 300% increase over the last two years, in firms recruiting on campus," Peggy Fortner, Placement Direc- tor at STCL, said. The growth in both on and off-campus recruiting is ex- plained by the amount of "PR- advance man-hype" Mrs. Fortner has been doing on behalf of the students. She sent out 200 letters to Houston Area firms soliciting clerkship positions and got what she refers to as "a very good response." Two hundred more letters went out to Florida firms, emphasizing the number of Florida students and graduates we have. The other letter that went out was the smallest batch at ISO. But, it clerkship. "It is an important screening tool that most firms are going to. Many extend jobs to S0-60% of their summer clerks. "Government agencies also have summer clerkships. "Thirdly, there are Federal Government clerkships as well as state Judicial clerkships," she said. T...

Pago 10 - ANNOTATIONS — August-September 1960 Hughes Reflects Cont'd. o . _ The entire function of the trial court is to make decisions about each question that's raised in the, preparation and trial of the case. Beyond being decisive, there are other qualities lawyers and the public have a right to expect, importantly of which is Q. Have you identified any areas for change in the substan- tive or procedural aspects of the trial system as practiced here in Harris County? A. There are a lot of procedural changes that one could make, but most of these are simply tinkering with the system. I have no quarrel with the American adver- sary civil trial system of litigation as it is practiced here in Harris County. I would modify some of the docket procedures. I would, of course, simplify the filing, but I would not make any structural changes. Q. You mentioned docket and filing procedures. Can you be more specific? A. At the present time, we have, for filing civil suits, a district clerk a...

August-September 1980 - ANNOTATIONS - Page 11 Thompson Says Library Important * ,. ^ by Frank Stagg A law library is as important to a law student as it is to a practicing attorney. While the library of South Texas College of Law is established primarily as a professional research library to serve the needs of its faculty and students, "anyone who uses the library does so because he wants to see relationships, to see why they exist," and whether those relationships are still valid, ac- cording to Mrs. Frances Thomp- son, Law Librarian of STCL. Ideally, a substantial part of a law student's legal learning pro- cess takes place in the law library. Unfortunately, some students do not take time during the three or so years they are here to familiar- ize themselves with the nature, purpose, and functioning of the library. "Not everyone can take penicillin." No two academic or profession- al law libraries are the same, and it would be difficult, if not impossible, to compare our lib- rary...

Paga 12 — ANNOTATIONS — August-September 1980 STCL'ers Split Practice Games Soccer Update With only two weeks left before the start of the season, STCL's soccer team is beginning to show signs of improvement. On August 2, STCL won the first end of a two game series with the Dutch International Team. In that contest STCL started with an early one goal lead, on which Mike Magee was assisted by Pat Ryan. The lead changed quickly before STCL was able to draw even at 2-2. That's where the score stood at the end of the first half. The second half STCL got off to a quick start with Magee scoring his third goal on a head shot off a corner kick by Dave Willard. However, as it has happened in the past, it happened again, the Dutch team drew even at 3-3. With about 15 minutes remain- ing to play, STCL went ahead to stay. Magee got his fourth goal, and Pat Ryan added a fifth goal to put the game out of reach for the Dutch team. The final score was 5-3, with STCL on the winning side. STCL was no...
