Summer, 1985 —THE ANNOTATION- PageS (Editor's Note: In this edition, The A nnotation is introducing a new column to be authored by Prof. R.J. Graving. The space will be uti- lized by Prof. Graving to confront and comment on current issues of international importance. The Professor is a leading authority on In- ternational Law and has been kind enough to offer to share his thoughts with our readers. We welcome Professor Graving to our pages, and look forward to future columns.) Human Rights Seminar By Prof. R.J. Graving In the fall we are going to offer a seminar in International Human Rights, but why? The epigraph to Hemingway's great novel of the Spanish Civil War contains these lines from John Donne that by now transcend simple familiarity: . . . never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee. To some this evokes images of self-consciously muscular prose, of hairy- chested metaphors about how the earth moved for Mariia, and of an El Sor- do whose dirtiest word was "...

Crump was cited by the journalists for dedication to the U.S. Constitution's "free marketplace of ideas". Ira Perry, president of SPJ, said, "Nominations were solicited from the 27 Texas SPJ chapters, the ma- jor Texas news media and its college journalism departments. Several can- didates deserved recognition but Dave Crump overshadows the others. He has for several years aided the profession and the First Amendment without receiving remuneration. "Crump fought to keep sketch ar- tists from being banned from court- rooms, to get 'public domain' records released by the city and a libel rule reversed from the Texas Supreme Court,"...

Summer, 1985 —THE ANNOTATION— Page 9 FROM THE IVORY TOWER The Naming of Birds By Assistant Prof. Neil C. McCabe "So if it looks like a duck, talks like a duck and walks like a duck with the intention of becoming a peacock, in Judge Jordan's court, you've got one great peacock." Such has been the level of commentary on the recent case involving the residence of the Honorable I.D. McMaster, Jr., Judge of the 179th District Court of Harris County, Texas. Because of such squawking as the preceding quotation from a Houston Post editorial and other similar comments by Lynn Ashby and Steve Smith on television, I have accepted your editor's invitation to comment on the case. My view- point is not so much from the ivory tower, however, as it is from the parapet, because I was one of the attorneys representing Judge McMaster in the case. The residence case arose when a criminal defendant, now a convicted felon, raised questions about Judge McMaster's residence in an attempt to get the crimina...

Page 10 THE ANNOTATION — Summer, 1985 Steinem ferior or second class," she said. "Pornography," she said, "is to women what fascist literature is to Jews, what Klan literature is to blacks." It is "the literature that teaches and legitimizes violence against women. It desensitizes, at minimum, its reader or viewer to violence against women and, indeed may invite it and it may provide a model for it." "We hav? been made to believe," Ms. Steinem explained, "that sex- uality and violence are normally in- tertwined." The misconception that women are sexually passive and men are sexually aggressive leads us on a "slippery slope toward sadomas- ochism," she added. What must be done then, she said, is to redefine sexuality. "In patriarchal society, it is regarded as having only one purpose, and that is reproduction." If sex is not inside patriarchal marriage and directed toward having children, it has been punished and considered immoral, Ms. Steinem noted. This includes premarital sex, se...

Summer, 1985 -THE ANNOTATION — Page 11 Advocacy Tops Journal In Challenge Match By Lee Shirley The Board of Advocates used an early lead to take a decisive 11-3 vic- tory over the Law Journal in the First Annual Softball Challenge game held between the two organ- izations on June 15th at Bonham Park. Behind the powerful swing of Gordon Brooks, who drove in six runs on two homers, the Advocates capitalized on fielding errors by the Journal in the first inning. Aside from a three-run homer by Brooks, Larry Daniel and Terry Gerlich also drove in runs in the first, forcing the Journal to play catch-up ball. Advocacy pitcher Lori Hood held the Journal to just two runs before she was forced from the game by a knee injury. Ken Johnson got the save allowing just one run in a late inning rally by the Journal. Daniel added a two-run homer in the third while Brooks, who was hobbled earlier this year by ankle surgery, hammered another three- run shot in the fourth to insure the win for the Advo...

Page 12 —THE ANNOTATION Summer, 1985 Grading Policy Compared By Anita J. Ponder "Are there any new grades posted?" This question has a familiar ring to most students at South Texas Col- lege of Law. In confronting this problem of waiting for grades, the primary question that most students have is whether or not professors have some type of deadline for turning in grades. The policy at South Texas is that full-time professors have six weeks after the last day of finals to turn in grades, whereas adjunct pro- fessors have eight weeks. "Those professors who want ex- tentions must make a request to Dean Ensle's office to that effect," said Norma Saenz, student services secretary. "The majority of instruc- tors who ask for extentions request a one to two week extention," accord- ing to Miss Saenz. When asked about penalties for not meeting the deadlines, Miss Saenz replied, "since the professor can request an extention, there is no real penalty." In comparing the deadline policies at STC...

"The charges of cheating were dropped for lack of evidence," Mr. Brock added. The plea agreements included the proviso that nothing is entered in either student's permanent record, and that each student take a grade of 55 in the course, according to Mr. Brock. Identical plea bargaining agree- ments were reached in seperate pre- trial hearings with each defendant, he said. The formal charges, which were brought by a professor, were served on the defendants Jan. 26.

Page 2 - ANNOTATIONS March 1985 Editorial Administration applauded for financial aid study The administration and faculty should be applauded for forming a committee to study scholarships and financial aid for South Texas College of Law students. Reportedly, the committee, chaired by Assistant Dean John F. Ensle, will focus not only on the distrubition of funds currently available, but also on garnering new sources of scholarship monies. Currently, the biggest chunk of scholarship funds available to STCL students goes to members of the advocacy teams, Board of Ad- vocates, and to South Texas Law Journal editorial board members. Certainly, no one begrudges those individuals their tuition scholar- ships. The advocacy teams consis- tently have placed or won virtually every competition they have entered. Preparing for those competitions re- quires grueling hours of research, writing and re-writing briefs, and practice rounds with other team members and coaches. Law Journal board members...

March 1985 - ANNOTATIONS - Page 3 Read 'The case of the hugged bedroom' By Prof. Steven Finz Imagine a double feature con- sisting of Sophie's Choice and Terms of Endearment. If they didn't show Bugs Bunny between the movies, you might cry yourself to death. Sometimes cartoons fur- nish a necessary break from the heavy emotion engendered by the scheduled films. For that reason, Shakespeare often wrote clowns in- to the middle of his tragedies. And for the same reason, casebook editors frequently use the notes which follow cases to relieve the mental strain or tedium that a casebook assignment can bring. Some students care only about what they might be asked to recite on in class. They skip the notes, and just read the principle cases. Too bad! They may be missing the best part. Take the case of the bugged bed- room, for example. It's mentioned, very casually, on page 1095 of a casebook used for Torts courses.

Page 4 — ANNOTATIONS — March 1985 Toxic Torts The fight for control in court Softball tourney set By William Conkin Staff Writer "We have met the enemy, and it is us." Pogo comic strip by Walt Kelly The quotation suggests, of course, that humanity is its own worst enemy. While certainly not a novel idea, the notion that we are our own worst enemies is ap- propriate when considering the problems and solutions associated with the treatment, storage and disposal of the hazardous wastes wjiich are among the by-products of an industrial world. Mary Ellen Whit worth, director of the Clean-Up-Lake-Houston Project, addressed the difficulties arising from unsafe handling of such waste, and one solution: hazardous waste litigation. Ms. Whitworth, who also is associated with the Sierra Club and who holds a graduate degree in environmental engineering, last month met with a small group of South Texas College of Law students for an informal question and answer discussion session. As an environme...

March 1985 — ANNOTATIONS Page 5 Law in the '30s Dorothy Rieger: istaying awake was a problem then, too' By Mark Goldberg Staff Writer While some things change, others stay the same. So it goes in recount- ing the past with Mrs. Dorothy Rieger, one-half of the first married couple to graduate from South Texas College of Law. Ferdinand Rieger, who recently passed away, and Dorothy Blocher met in 1931 while attending STCL and became engaged shortly there- after. They were married in June 1934, a year before their graduation. Many things were different in the early days of South Texas. Mrs. Rieger was one of only five or six women attending the school at that time. "The majority of the students were older businessmen who wanted to learn law to help them in their businesses," she said. "How- ever, there were some kids who were right out of high school." In those days, South Texas did not require its students to have a bachelor's degree in order to be ad- mitted. All that was required, ac...

A combined total of 25 scholarships is awarded each semes- ter to participants of those two pro- grams. "It appears that if we are to achieve our goals we are going to have to create additional scholar- ships and obtain significant outside funding," Dean Ensle said. According to the faculty advisors of the law journal and the advocacy program, substantial private fund- ing allows them to subsidize, par- tially or completely, the tuition pay- ments of many of the students who hold responsible positions within their organizations. Each of the Law Journal's 14 editors receives at least a one-half scholarship and the editor receives a full scholarship. Law Journal editorial board members receive over $ 15,000 in scholarship monies in a given semester. "We hope someday to raise that figure to $30,000," said Prof. Marsel, Law Journal faculty ad- visor. Reportedly, all Law Journal...

March 1985 - ANNOTATIONS - Page 7 'Stop Making Sense9 is riveting concert documentary By Morris Weiss Staff Writer "Stop Making Sense" is a rivet- ing documentary of the Talking Heads in concert on their 1983-'84 tour. Since the Talking Heads were formed more than 10 years ago they have remained one of the most im- portant and musically innovative groups of the post-punk era. "Stop Making Sense" continues their pioneering approach while they move into the medium of film. From the first scene of "Stop Making Sense," one realizes they will not be seeing an ordinary film. One sees David Byrne (vocals and guitar) enter the stage, place a large cassette player at his feet and state matter of factly, "Hi, I got a tape I wanna play." Byrne turns on the tape, which is just a click track, joins in on the acoustic guitar, and sings a manic version of "Psytho- killer." Next Tina Weymouth (bass and vocals) enters and they play "Heaven" together. Then Chris Franz (drums and vocals) enters and th...

The STCL Board of Trustees of- fered Mattox the position March 30. Reportedly, Lylene Pilkenton, the college's revered registrar for 35 years, declined the position because "I don't want to take a back seat to anyone." Ms. Pilkenton said the dean's position would require a cut in pay and in authority.

Page 2 -AMUTATION— April 1985 Editorial Gumby tells Pogens story By Gumby Roving Reporter Once upon a time, in the land of Sweden there lived Pogens people, purveyors to His Majesty the King of Sweden. The Pogens were bakers, but not just any old bakers — they were Creative Bakers and they baked the best darned ginger snap in the whole wide world. His Majesty the King of Sweden loved the Pogens people's ginger snaps, as did His Majesty the King of Denmark. So much so that any royal subject in both kingdoms who failed to eat, at least once a day, a Ginger Snap Pogen was banished from the kingdom to live forever in the Cave of Quagmire where nasiy monsters resided. In those days over 100 years ago, there was no insurance and no subrogation rights. And of course, one could not sue the king. So Pogens, who were not too keen on His Majesty the King's rather overzealous outlook in regard to their cookies, added a pinch of magic to their famous but secret recipe.

April 1985 -AMUTATION- Page3 Jurists propose defendant's right to nonsuit By Prof. Al Taylor A panel of outstanding legal scholars meeting at South Texas College of Law to study ways to exr pedite civil case dispositions in Har- ris County Tuesday endorsed a pro- posal to extend to defendants the right to take a nonsuit . Citing a case log-jam crisis here, the panel report emphasized: 1. The average time between the filing and the trial of a contested civil action in Harris County is just under four years. The increased use of discovery abuse sanctions, once thought to be a panacea, is not forcing as many early settlements as had been anticipated. In spite of the addition of numerous trial courts here, there has been a steady increase From the Ivory Tower in the time required to bring a case to trial over the past 20 years. 4. Plaintiffs have always enjoyed the absolute right to perempt- orily conclude any case brought by them, perhaps with prejudice to the refiling there- of, witho...
