Papers On Historic Trials

Gideon V. Wainwright
[ send me this paper ]
15 pages in length. The magnitude of Gideon v. Wainwright's precedent-setting decision was immense in nature; not only did this ruling establish an entirely new facet of personal rights within the scope of legal proceedings, but it also illustrated just how inequitable the entire system has historically been operated. Those who could heretofore not afford council when faced with a crime were left to defend themselves or simply give in to a system that offered no other way out; by contrast, those with money had every opportunity available to them. What is more, the case was instrumental in confirming that an individual's past criminal history has no bearing upon whether or not he should be deemed "worthy" of legal representation. Gideon v. Wainwright finally placed legal equity into the hands of every American. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

Hopkins V. Price Waterhouse
[ send me this paper ]
3 pages in length. The foundation of this case is in the fundamental understanding of and appreciation for the detrimental impact sexual discrimination has upon a woman's ability to secure earned promotion within a company that determines advancement based upon much more than one's talent. Hopkins was initially refused partnership at Price Waterhouse not for lack of aptitude for the position but rather because she was deemed 'too masculine' for what they believed a woman should project within the company's environment. While half of the decision makers - the majority not surprisingly being men - heralded her tremendous talent for landing key contracts, they could not get past the stereotypical perception of how a female partner should be physically represented in the firm. As such, she was recommended to walk, talk and look more feminine so that when she would be brought back for reconsideration the following year, her chances of making partner would be much better; a year later when she was not reconsidered for partnership, Hopkins sued Price Waterhouse citing violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. No bibliography.

Lucky Luciano, A Business-Approach to Crime
[ send me this paper ]
A 10 page research paper, which also includes a short abstract, that details the life and criminal career of Charles "Lucky" Luciano, a criminal genius who succeeded in reshaping the Mafia in the US from a "clan-based, haphazard crime organization" into a something more closely resembling a streamlined "corporation" (Rigby, 1999, p. 108). This examination of Luciano's life and career in crime focuses, first of all, on his background, but then recounts his rise to power and his influence over crime in America in the first half of the twentieth century. If there ever was an American criminal success story, it is Luciano's. He was "Horatio Alger with a gun" (Buchanan, 1998, p. 130). Bibliography lists 7 sources.
