Answers & Explanations

Definitions — The Jargon Used in Legislation

As with every other area of life, legislation comes with some jargon that, once mastered, should come in handy when you’re trying to understand the law. Here are some terms you may encounter when researching federal or state statutes:

Annotated Codes: Publications that combine state or federal statutes with summaries of cases that have interpreted the statutes. With a few rare exceptions, annotated codes are only available in a law library or on subscriber-based legal websites.

Bill: What a statute is called when it is introduced in Congress or a state legislature. When a bill is passed by both houses and the President or a state governor, it becomes a law and will usually be published according to its bill number in a publication called “Session Laws” or “Statutes at Large.”

Bill Number: Bills are referred to by number. The number really has two parts: the abbreviation for the specific wing of the legislature in which the bill is introduced, as in HB (house bill) or SB (senate bill), and the number which identifies the particular bill, as in HB 1507.

Chapter: A term that identifies a group of related state or federal statutes that have been gathered together within a particular Title or Code.

Chaptered: A bill becomes chaptered if it is approved by the legislature and signed by the governor.

Citation: Formal references to statutes that describe where they are published. For instance, the citation 23 Vt. Stat. Ann. § 1185 tells us that this cited statute is Section 1185 of Title 23 of the Vermont Statutes Annotated. And the federal citation 42 U.S.C.§ 1395 tells us that this cited federal statute can be found in Title 42, Section 1395 of the United States Code.Code: In general, the term “code” refers to the main body of statutes of the jurisdiction (for example, the United States Code or the Arizona Revised Statutes). The statutes that are published in a state’s code are grouped by subject matter into Titles, as in Title 11 of the United States Code (bankruptcy laws). In some states, including California, Texas and New York, the term “code” may be used both to refer to the overall collection of statutes and the separate subject matter groupings of statutes, as in “Penal Code,” “Family Code,” or “Probate Code.”

Engrossed: A bill is engrossed when a legislative body (such as the House) votes to approve it and sends it on to the other legislative body (such as the Senate).

Enrolled: A bill is enrolled when both houses of a legislative body have voted to approve it and it has been sent to the executive branch (the President or a state governor) for signing.

Legislative history: Assorted materials generated in the course of creating legislation, including committee reports, analysis by legislative counsel, floor debates, and a history of actions taken. Legislative history for recently enacted federal statutes can be found at http://thomas.loc.gov/home/thomas.php. Legislative history for state statutes is sparse and not easily found on the Web.

Session Laws: When bills become law, they are published in a text according to the session of the legislature that enacted them into law. For instance, laws passed by the California legislature in 1999 were passed in the 1999-2000 session. The individual laws in the publication for a particular session (such as Session Laws 1999-2000) can be found according to their original bill number.

Statutes at Large: See Session Laws.

Statutory Schemes: Groups of statutes that relate to one particular subject. For instance, all of the federal statutes that make up Title VII of the Civil Rights Act (which forbids employment discrimination and sexual harassment) are known as a “statutory scheme” because they are all related to each other.

Title: In the federal system and in some states, “title” is used to denote a collection of state or federal statutes by subject matter, as in Title 11 of the U.S. Code for bankruptcy statutes or Title 42 of the U.S. Code for civil rights statutes. Title is also used to denote a group of statutes within a larger set of statutes, as in Title IX of the Civil Rights Act (which itself is located in Title 42 of the U.S. Code).

For more definitions, see Nolo’s Plain-English Law Dictionary.

The Role of Statutes in our Legal System

When people talk about “what the law says” or “what the law is,” they are generally referring to statutes (sometimes called codes). Statutes, which are created by the U.S. Congress and by our state legislators, attempt to lay out the ground rules of “the law.” When disputes arise over the meaning of statutes, state and federal courts issue court opinions that interpret the statutes more clearly. This is referred to as “case law.” In addition, numerous federal and state agencies, such as the Environmental Protection Agency, the IRS, and the various Secretary of State’s offices, issue regulations that cover the legal areas that the agencies control (such as environmental law, federal taxes, and corporations law).

Should I Search Federal or State Laws?

Most legal research involves state statutes rather than federal statutes because states have the sole power to make the law in many areas, such as child custody, divorce, landlord-tenant, small business, personal injury, and wills and trusts. A growing number of legal areas are covered by both state and federal statutes, including consumer protection, employment, and food and drug regulation. (State laws give way to stricter federal laws that address the same issue.) Finally, the federal government alone creates the law for a few specific subject areas, such as copyrights, patents, bankruptcy, federal taxes, and Social Security.

How to Find a Law

There are two main ways to find a particular state or federal statute on a state’s website — by doing a search or by browsing the table of contents. Not all states allow you to do a search, but for those that do, simply enter a few terms that relate to the subject you’re looking for. For instance, in you’re looking for the minimum number of directors that your state requires a corporation to have, you might enter the terms “corporation” and “director.”

However, this can often be difficult to do because you may not know the exact terms your state uses to address the issue you’re researching. Browsing the table of contents of statutes is often a better way to find laws on your subject because it lets you look first at the general subjects (titles, or sometimes divisions). From there you can move to particular topics (chapters, or sometimes articles), and then to the precise statutes you need (sections). By browsing, you also get a general idea of all the statutes there are on a specific subject.

How to Read a Law

Some statutes are clearly written, meaning that you can easily understand exactly what the legislature intended and what “the law” is on a particular subject. Unfortunately, many statutes are very difficult to understand. Exceptions to the statute, “whereases,” and cross-references to other statutes can make it very hard to understand what a statute means. Here are some rules to use when interpreting a statute:

  • Read the statute three times and then read it again.
  • Pay close attention to all the “ands” and “ors.” The use of “and” to end a series means that all elements of the series are included, or necessary, but an “or” at the end of a series means that only one of the elements need be included.
  • Assume all words and punctuation in the statute have meaning. For example, if a statute says you “may” do something, that means you are allowed to do it. But if it says you “shall” do something, it means you are required to do it.
  • It’s tempting to skip words you don’t quite understand. Don’t do it. If you’re confused about what a word means and can’t understand from the context, look the word up.
  • If the statute is one of a number you are studying, interpret it to be consistent with the other statutes if at all possible.
  • Interpret a statute so that it makes sense rather than lead to some absurd or improbable result.
  • Track down all cross-references to other statutes and sections and read those statutes and sections.

How to Make Sure a Law Is Up to Date

Once a statute becomes law, it seldom remains unchanged for very long. A future legislature may change (amend) or revoke (repeal) a statute for any number of reasons. Unfortunately, many online collections of statutes are not kept up to date. For one, the online U.S. Code is often a year behind — it takes a lot of time to work new federal legislation into the existing organizational framework. In this case, you can use Thomas, a Congressional website that provides both pending and recently enacted legislation, to find out if there have been any recent changes to the statute you’re interested in.

In addition, many state collections of statutes are not up to date, but the state website will usually tell you the year that the collection was last updated. In that case, you will have to search all the bills that have passed since the last time the statutes were updated. The text of these bills is available on your state legislature’s website, which is often linked from your state’s statutes.

The Judiciary Report

. judge_5The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing” – Edmund Burke

Justice is supposed to be blind. Judges aren’t supposed to be when it comes to justice. This site provides a stunning, candid look at the judiciary and why you may not get your day in court. When one thinks of court, one thinks of justice. The famous picture of the lady with the blindfold covering one eye – but that blind fold is starting to look more like an eye patch on a pirate, as many Americans and foreigners as well are being robbed of their day in court.

And to the ones who do actually get their day in court, their rights are being stepped on by judges willfully violating their oath of office. Justice is not being served in an astonishing number of cases, with verdicts leaving the public scratching their heads – and not because of dandruff.

THIS MAY EXPLAIN WHY 2,300,000 AMERICANS ARE IN PRISON (CLICK HERE).

There are good judges out there, but sadly there are quite a few bad ones as well. This site aims to take a look at the inequity in the justice system and how innocent people are being harmed by it. It should interest you, as if you meet in an accident, are robbed, scammed or abused in anyway, the court system is supposed to be one of your (legal) remedies and the very one that might inexcusably fail you the most.

It is apart of why some repeat offenders in both the civil and criminal circuits are so bold and arrogant in breaking the law, as they know they can buy off cases click here for more.

THE BAD NEWSImage result for bad news

Good Judges That Buck The Trend…And Were Punished For It

Some judges in the judiciary showed they care about the average American by awarding in their favor when their rights were violated. However, they were punished for it. “Buying Justice” Justice C.P. (Chuck) McRae is adored by trial lawyers–and reviled by business. A colorful, cocky figure who drives a motorcycle to the courthouse and dresses in cowboy boots, blue jeans and lots of leather, he was once president of the Mississippi Trial Lawyers Association.

Nearly all of his $700,000 campaign fund in 2000 came in the form of $5,000 gifts from plaintiff attorneys who stand a chance of appearing before him. McRae says he is proud of “defending the have-nots against the haves for more than 11 years,” a populist sentiment that unsettles business execs. He was “the dominant force on the court and in line to be the next chief justice,” says Chip Reno, director of Stop Lawsuit Abuse, a local pro-business lobby click here.


Spotlight Case: Elsebeth Baumgartner – An Accomplished Citizens vs. The Corrupt Visiting Judge

Judge Richard Markus is openly violating the constitutional rights of citizen Elsebeth Baumgartner for simply exercising her right to free speech in a non-threatening, peaceful manner. The lengths this just has gone to is sickening and appalling and is another black eye on the Judiciary. Markus, if you’re going to be doing your level best to bringing about the incarceration of law abiding citizens, do the country a favor, stop visiting and go into full retirement click here.

Judge Richard Palumbo

The criminally negligent judge whose actions lead an innocent woman to be severely burned by her abusive husband, with a history of domestic violence, once Judge Palumbo, carelessly, arrogantly and dismissively released him from what was clearly a necessary restraining order. This story was featured on the Oprah Winfrey Show.

In my humble opinion, if your criminal negligence causes someone permanent damage, you should do jail time for that. Had he not been so arrogant and dismissive, not listening to the woman’s pleas, as was shown on tape, none of this would have happened. His conduct has profoundly and negatively affected Yvette Cade for the rest of her life.

He should have been held accountable in criminal court for his conduct, as it was 100% negligence with disastrous results. If someone, through criminal negligence, opened him or his family members up to such danger, he would be furious. For more click here


Judge Marcia Cooke (center) – the judge that doesn’t need to read a case or the evidence to make a ruling.

The most crooked judge in the entire judiciary. Appointed by George W. Bush, she has shown wanton negligence in several cases, that has been criticized by the public and professionals alike, in pieces that are available online. The newest judge in the downtown Miami federal courthouse, she has been given cases of serious importance that is making a negative impact on the county’s name and the court’s credibility in the world.

Her conduct, among others, is the subject of a forthcoming Sonustar film titled “Justice And Truth.” Thanks to this dirty judge, I got to see first hand, the sweeping corruption present in the U.S. judicial system, that in my opinion, is the most corrupt in the world, bar none.

Marcia Cooke’s oversight on my case was Judge Stephen Brown, pictured above, who probably didn’t read the case either, before signing off on her thoroughly corrupt ruling.

Judge Thomas J. Maloney – “Judge With Criminal Connections,” was one of several judges and lawyers caught red handed taking bribes via the FBI sting, Operation Greylord. Judge Maloney took bribes and rigged murder cases. He easily qualifies as one of the worst judges in history click here

Judge James Henson – Judge advises client to flee the country to avoid manslaughter charges. With tactics like these, this judge could work for the mafia. Congress and the people install judges to see that justice is served and victims vindicated. How is a judge, still working in an advisory role as attorney, telling a client to flee rather than faces charges like a man, which would in effect deprive families of justice, in the malfeasance that transpired against the deceased, remotely virtuous conduct befitting a judge click here


paper-moneyJudge Jon Gordon

“God Bless The Child – Not If Jon Gordon Can Help It.” One of Miami’s most callous judges, who is so arrogant, dismissive and cold blooded, that the ruled against a sick child in favor of the wealthy corporation. This is a serious pattern with him, meaning the average U.S. citizen will not get justice in his courtroom.

However, if you are a young female lawyer and you flirt with him, he will shamelessly respond to your request, making a fool of himself. Yea, I’ve seen him do just that, then bark at other innocent people unprovoked, who he prejudicially made up his mind against from the jump. He has a sarcastic, nasty, mocking attitude fit for an ill-mannered scoundrel. Ebenezer Scrooge has a more pleasant disposition than this man. For more click here

FEATURED ARTICLE2,000,000 Americans in prison

The featured article is penned by the California based, American owned, Judicial Accountability. They did a stunning expose on the judicial system. Here are a few excerpts (for more go to www.jail4judges.org ):

Rigged courts, bribed judges, phony trials, extortion by lawyers, and over 2 million prisoners in the USA gulag

Multi-millionaires and big corporations, vs. everybody else

The only people who really can expect some fairness in American courts are multi-millionaires and big corporations. Nobody else really matters to American judges and lawyers. There is a huge amount of bribery in America, perhaps even more than in the courts of any other country in the world. Even some American ex-judges have admitted the near-universality of bribery there. Nearly all bribes are given to the judges by lawyers; this is considered the safe way to bribe a judge.

Bribery is rarely spoken about, just understood. Rich people pay huge amounts of money to law firms with connections, the lawyers walk around with a certain amount of cash in their jacket, and they pass it to the judges in their quiet moments together. It is mostly all cash of course. Sometimes the bribery is blatantly obvious, because of the other crimes that lawyers and judges commit in broad daylight together. In the courtrooms you can see the judges being extremely friendly to their rich lawyer friends who pay big bribes.

Former Illinois Gov. George Ryan

Heading to Prison

U.S. Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens on Tuesday rejected an appeal by former Illinois Gov. George Ryan to remain free on bail while he appeals his corruption conviction. The 73-year-old Republican is due to report to a federal correctional center in Oxford, Wis., no later than Wednesday.

A federal jury convicted Ryan in April 2006 on fraud and racketeering charges. Federal prosecutors had alleged that under Ryan, the state of Illinois was basically for sale. They accused Ryan of presiding over state government offices that were thoroughly corrupt for at least a decade.

Ryan steered lucrative state government contracts and leases to friends and government insiders who gave him and his family vacations, gifts and cash.

“It was cronyism, where contracts were awarded to people. People were given inside information, they were acting upon it. And at times, George Ryan stepped into the process to make sure that those interests were taken care of,” said Chicago U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald at the time of Ryan’s indictment. Fitzgerald later called Ryan’s conviction “a low-water mark for public service, to have a governor, a secretary of state, to abuse his office in that fashion.”

Probe Sparked by Tragedy

The investigation into corruption in Ryan’s office began with a horrendous tragedy, while Ryan was still Illinois’ secretary of state. On Election Day 1994, a piece of a tail-light assembly fell off a semi-trailer on a Milwaukee expressway and bounced beneath a minivan, rupturing its gas tank and exploding the van into flames. Six children from the Willis family of Chicago, en route to a little getaway, were killed; their parents were severely burned.

Other motorists told police they tried to warn the driver of the truck that the piece was dangling dangerously, but he didn’t understand English. Federal law requires truckers to know and read English to get a license, and investigators were alarmed that this driver — who was from Chicago — didn’t. Wisconsin authorities notified the Illinois secretary of state’s office, which licenses drivers and was then headed by the freshly re-elected Ryan.

An internal investigation found the driver may have paid a bribe to get his license. Ryan’s response was to squash the probe and fire the investigators. Four years later, with Ryan campaigning for governor, federal prosecutors picked up the case. They began indicting employees in Ryan’s office for selling licenses for bribes and then funneling the cash into Ryan’s campaign fund. Ryan repeatedly denied he knew anything about the corruption. The U.S. attorney at the time, Scott Lassar, said in October 1998 that Ryan was not a target of the investigation at the time. So Illinois voters elected Ryan governor by a narrow margin over a squeaky-clean Democrat, then-Rep. Glenn Poshard.

The win capped a political career that began in the early 1970s, when Ryan, a pharmacist from Kankakee, Ill., won a seat on the Kankakee County Board. He went onto serve in the Illinois General Assembly, including one term as House speaker, and as the state’s lieutenant governor, before being elected secretary of state in 1990.

An Old-Fashioned Politician

Though Ryan began his one term as governor triumphantly, with Ray Charles playing at his inaugural bash, he remained under a cloud of suspicion. The federal probe into Ryan’s former office widened, with investigators finding a wide-ranging scheme to use employees of the secretary of state’s office to raise cash for his campaign coffers. The probe culminated with Ryan’s indictment in 2004. In all, 79 people have been indicted in what the U. S. attorney’s office dubbed “Operation Safe Roads.” At least 75 people have been convicted, with no acquittals.

Still, many observers say Ryan used his time in the governor’s office effectively. Known as an old-style, back-slapping politician, Ryan forged effective relationships with both sides of the aisle. He initiated a long-overdue investment in the state’s aging infrastructure, repairing and replacing crumbling roads and bridges, investing in mass transit, and building new state buildings and schools.

His wheeling and dealing in smoke-filled backrooms led to legislative deals pumping new funding into the state’s schools. Ryan also worked with Chicago’s Democratic mayor, Richard M. Daley, to pass a ban on assault weapons — to the chagrin of many of his friends in his own party.

“Why would anybody take any great satisfaction that this man is going to prison?” longtime GOP state Rep. Bill Black told the Associated Press. “He had decades of, I think, noble service.”

An Ironic, Noble Legacy

To many, there is even a certain irony to seeing George Ryan in prison, because of his most notable work as governor: overhauling Illinois’ problem-plagued criminal justice system.

Ryan won international acclaim in 1999 for declaring a moratorium on executions in Illinois after seeing more than a dozen death-row inmates have their convictions overturned. He appointed a blue-ribbon commission to study ways to revamp the state’s capital punishment system. But with state lawmakers failing to enact some of those proposals, Ryan wasn’t convinced that the problems were completely fixed. In January 2003, he stunned the world by clearing out Illinois’ death row, commuting the death sentences of more than 160 inmates to life sentences.

“He recognized the entire criminal justice system is in serious need of reform and he’s made a most significant contribution to that effort not only in Illinois, but nationally,” Rob Warden, director of the Center for Wrongful Convictions at Northwestern University, said at the time of Ryan’s sentencing. “He’s done a great deal of good in life, and for it to end like this is tragic. It’s beyond tragic.”

Warden says Ryan will leave a noble legacy of reforming what he believes was a corrupt system that trampled the rights of some of the most vulnerable criminal defendants; many had served years in prison or on death row for crimes they did not commit.

“What George Ryan did in Illinois is going to have a tremendous impact on criminal justice reform throughout the United States in the next couple of decades,” Warden says.

Ryan’s efforts to reform capital punishment got him nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. To many death penalty opponents, he is a man of honor and integrity. To the federal correctional system, he is a new inmate about to begin a 6 and 1/2 year sentence Wednesday at the federal prison in Oxford.
