South Texas ^College of Law The Annotation Non-Profit Org. U.S. Postage PAID Houston, Texas Permit 8451 Volume XIV, No. 3 1303 San Jacinto, Houston, Texas 77002 October, 1985 STCL Dominates Supreme Court Clerkship Choices by Gordon Brooks Assistant Editor Eight of the 18 students selected as clerks for the Texas Supreme Court for the 1986-87 term are from South Texas College of Law. Those students chosen from STCL are: Roland Garcia, Jr., Cynthia L. Hooper, Eleanor Kitzman, Paula Jo Pierce, Barbara Pusch, Jim Shepherd, Carolyn St. Clair and Melinda L. Wesner. STCL also had its share of stu- dents chosen last year with five of the clerks coming from this school. But this year, no other school placed more than two students in a clerk- ship position with the high court ex- cept STCL. The University of Texas, St. Mary's College of Law, Baylor Uni- versity and Texas Tech University each had two students selected for clerkship positions while the Univer- sity of Houston and Texas Southern...

Page 2 -THE ANNOTATION— October, 1985 editorial Welch's Gaffe An Embarrassment Right off the bat, we will admit to being red-faced at the thought of having Louie Welch on the cover of The Annotation only a week after he committed what he refers to as a blooper but what others feel was a blunder. But he is a leading contender for the highest office in this city. He does have his share of supporters. And, whether you like his view of Houston city government or not, he just may be our next mayor. That makes what he has to say It does not, though, make his now-infamous statement any less embarrassing. Embarrassing to himself. He has admitted it was a mistake. Embarrassing to The Annotation. The statement was made after our interview and after the decision was made to put that interview on page one (alongside a planned interview with Mayor Whitmire that was continually refused). Embarrassing to many of his supporters. After months of back- breaking campaign work, they woke up one morning...

October, 1985 -THE ANNOTATION— Page 3 it Your fate belongs to the downtown delinquents — Kaighen by Sondra Kaighen Staff Writer Scenario: You have just spent an entire Sunday afternoon working hard in the library studying — agonizing over case after case. Finally, the magic mo- ment arises. The librarian flickers the lights. Your heart leaps with elation — the school is finally closing! You call home and find that your roommate marinated fajitas and is just taking them off the grill. He informs you that the football game is about to start and there's a six-pack on ice. Ahhh! What a way to end the day! You start out the school gate and are rounding the corner of Clay and San Jacinto and . . . What happens next is not up to you or the school. Your fate at that time belongs to the downtown delinquents and derelicts. Luckily, this time they ONLY stole my car. Last year they ONLY smashed my window and made off with my T-Tops. A few months before that I ONLY witnessed a stabbing. All of t...

Page 4 —THE ANNOTATION— October, 1985 New Classrooms to Open in Tower Building by Mari S. Blumstein Staff Writer Beginning January of 1986, next semester, all STCL classrooms will be located in the new tower building, according to Dean W.J. Williamson. Seating from the third floor of the "old" building will be moved to the fourth and fifth floors of tower building, leaving the then vacant third floor for other uses. Although there are many possibil- ities as to what use will be made of the third floor in the old building, "no final decisions have been made yet," Dean Williamson said. However, structural changes on the third floor will most likely be made to accomodate student activity groups in need of office space. Additionally, the Law Review will be moving from its existing first floor offices to the third floor and the library will expand into that vacated space. The benefits students will gain from the move are numerous, in- cluding more space in general. Building Superintenden...

October, 1985 -THE ANNOTATION— Page 5 By Prof. R.J Graving Israel and the Law White House indifference to international law was demonstrated once again in the initial response to Israel's bombing of Tunisia on October 1. To Larry Speakes, purportedly reflecting the President's personal views, the ac- tion was a "legitimate response" to "terrorist attacks". Then George Shultz and the damage control squad moved in. The following day the President's personal views were kneaded into standard "received" diplomatic double- talk. The raid, said Speakes, was "understandable as an expression of self- defense" but "cannot be condoned". Boys will be boys. Someone had looked it up in the book. After a close scrutiny of all inci- dents of reprisal or retaliation in the period from 1953 to 1975, mostly by Israel, the Legal Adviser's Office (Department of State) had concluded: ". . . it is clear that the United States has taken the cate- gorical position that reprisals involving the use of force a...

Page 6 -THE ANNOTATION— October, 1985 Correction The Honor Court would like to retract what was printed in the last issue of THE AN NOTA TION con- cerning the proper method of filing a complaint for a violation of the Honor Code. As per Sec. 10.02 of the Honor Code, "[t]he complain- ant shall within a reasonable time after the commission of the alleged act, not to exceed 45 days, per- sonally file a written and signed complaint with the Student Bar Association Chief Prosecutor; or in his absence present his complaint in a sealed envelope to the President of the Student Bar Association who shall, without delay and without un- sealing the envelope, deliver such complaint to the Chief Prosecutor." By provision listed above, this authorizes only Andy Sommerman to receive such complaint, and in his absence, Linda Bonewell will sub- stitute as the authorized recipient.

Walker Mock Trial Competition held October 15, 16, 17 and 18. Johnson and Gerlich defeated Jeff Pratt and Mark Goldberg before at least 75 spectators in the Advocacy Auditorium at STCL.

October, 1985 —THE ANNOTATION— Page 11 Welch . . . • continuedfrompage 1 Q Now during the boom years here in Houston, young law graduates from around the country flocked here in search of the vast number of jobs that sprung up because of the economic euphoria and in the last few years those jobs haven't been as prevalent as they were at that time. Now, what would a Louie Welch administration offer those new young graduates, not only of law school but of gradu- ate schools and colleges — that they haven't been offered in the last several years. A They're all saying no to Houston today. Because the board deci- sions that are being made in ma- jor corporations have been nega- tive to Houston. Even Houston companies when they merge with other companies now have been moving their people out of Houston into the other locations. Gulf Oil, Chevron, the merger that went with Chevron didn't come here. Years ago, when those occurred, they all came to Houston. And now the negative — they're goi...

Chief Justice Pam Tate and Associate Justices Donna Mettz and Jeff Steen presided over the trial where Thomas Joseph Liebowitz and Judy Guyon Lud- wig were charged with violating section 6.02(c) of the South Texas College of Law Honor Code, by acting in "collusion" to produce substantially similar memoran- dums in Ex-Professor Tom Moran's Legal Research and Writing Class in Spring, 1986.

Page 2 ANNOTATIONS October/November, 1986 EDITORIAL From the Editor The recent Honor Court trial has brought to light a number of serious problems with student justice at South Texas College of Law. In a sense, the specific case is not nearly as important as the issues it raises in relation to future prosecutions and trials. Questions involving due proc- ess in a private or quasi-public institution, the symbiotic relationship bet- ween the court and the prosecutor's office, and the penal v. adminis- trative/civil nature of such a trial are now revealed for the student body to examine. These issues might have been examined years ago, except for the fact that this is the first public trial in the Honor Court's history. Now that the operations of the Honor Court, which holds the academic fate of a number of students in its hands, are now in public view perhaps it is time for the students — and the Honor Court itself — to suggest some changes for the future. Some consideration might be ...

Page 4 ANNOTATIONS October/November, 1986 ANNOTATIONS INTERVIEW Student Bar Association President By Tom Laucius Roving Rogue Reporter Q: A: Q: A: As S.B.A. President, how do you view the role of the Student Bar Association at South Texas? I think of the S.B.A. as a kind of glue that binds us all together, and as S.B.A. President I see my job as being responsible for maintain- ing that kind of attitude. What are the constitutional requirements of your job as president? The S.B.A. is charged with a number of responsibilities. Appoint- ment of students to the Honor Court, for example. We also appoint people to various student-faculty committees. We're also responsi- ble for things like graduation ceremonies and other social activities. In a broader sense, however, I think the S.B.A.'s role — and mine — is to attempt to provide some sense of community and belonging for the students. You mentioned the Honor Court. As S.B.A. President, how involved are you with the actual operation of th...

October/November, 1986 ANNOTATIONS Page 5 Career Development By Peggy Fortner The Phrase Daze Each profession gives birth to its own vocabulary and conversation peppered with abbreviations and terms which bear absolutely no rela- tionship to their original meaning. Law placement is no exception. The following list of terms was originally distributed at the 1983 NALP (con- tinue reading for explanation of this acronym) conference. With only the slightest tinge of guilt for pirating someone else's creativity, I'm sharing a portion of this material with our students. Alternative Careers — Refers to law-related and/or non-legal career op- portunities for J.D. graduates, besides the traditional practice of law. Billable Hours — The time a lawyer works on a project that can be charged to the client. Most employers have an established expected billing rate for lawyers. Blue Chip/Silk Stocking Firm — Slang for a law firm that is very prestigious, either locally, regionally or nationally. Ca...

Moran said that he instructed the library personnel to help the students with their memos and he in fact helped students do research in the library. Defense Counsel asked Moran if he recalled telling a student that the memo would not count for anything (contrary to his written instructions indicating that the memo was to count for 50% of the final grade.) Moran did not deny this. Defense Counsel was at- tempting to show through Moran's own testimony that he had waived his written instructions several times, so that he in effect modified his written instructions orally. Defense Counsel questioned Moran about why he no longer taught at South Texas. The Prose- cution objected based on a motion in limine that disallowed any ques- tioning of Professor Moran's ability to teach. However, Defense Counsel contended that si...
