MEMORANDUM OF POINTS AND AUTHORITIES IN OPPOSITION TO PLAINTIFF’S
MOTION TO DISMISS OR STAY OF A PERMANENT INJUNCTION
I.

INTRODUCTION

This Memorandum of Points and Authority is submitted by Floyd Industries, LLC, and Sandra Floyd
(herein collectively referred to as “Petitioners”) in opposition to Orin Rettick (“Rettick”)’s motion to dismiss, or in the alternative, for a stay of a permanent injunction filed by Petitioners in this Court.
Petitioners request this Court to grant Petitioners’ request for a permanent injunction of Rettick’s claim in the Tribal Court of the Taraconic Tribe. The Tribal Court of the Taraconic Tribe does not have adjudicatory jurisdiction over Rettick’s tort claim a gainst P etitioners because neither Floyd Industries,
LLC, nor Sandra Floyd are members of the Taraconic Tribe, because the fact that the clai m arose on tribal land is non-dispositive for jurisdiction, and because Rettick’s claim did not meet any of the ex ceptions for the general rule of limited exercise of inherent tribal power. Rettick’s claim did not meet the exceptions because his claim presents a simple torts claim that neither threatens the self -government of the tribe nor suggests the claim is contractual in nature. Because it is clear that the tribal court lacks jurisdiction over the claim, Petitioners request this Court to exercise jurisdiction over this case without waiting for exhaustion of claims in the tribal court. Accordingly, Petitioners request this Court to grant Petitioners’s request for a permanent injunction of Rettick’s claim in the Tribal Court of the Taraconic Tribe.

Roe V. Wade (1973)

...Roe V. Wade (1973) - personal liberties Roe V. Wade (1973) - Personal Liberties Roe v. wade this case took place in the year of 1973 (January 22), Roe, was a Texas resident who was pregnant and wanted to terminate her pregnancy by abortion. Texas law prohibited abortions except to save the pregnant woman's life. The Court heard her arguments twice. She was known as "Jane Roe" it was used for Norma McCorvey, whose suit was originally filed, alleging that the abortion law in Texas violated her constitutional rights and the rights of other women. The defendant was the district attorney of Dallas County, Texas, Henry B. Wade. Sarah Weddington and Linda Coffee were the plaintiff's lawyers. John Tolle, Jay Floyd and Robert Flowers were the defendant's lawyers. In this case all state laws limiting women's access to abortions during the first trimester of pregnancy were invalidated. Roe v. Wade was decided basically on the Fourteen Amendments to the United States Constitution, a part of the Bill of Rights. The Court's decision in this case was that the Fourteen Amendment, in stating that "the enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people," protected a person's right to privacy. The decision gave a woman total autonomy over the pregnancy during the first trimester and defined different levels of state interest for the second and third trimesters. As a result, the laws of 46 states were......

Connection of Purty Boy Floyd and the Grapes of Wrath

...Purty Boy Floyd was a famous bank robber in the 1930's. His real name was Charles, and he was born in Georgia, but he grew up in Oklahoma after his family moved there in 1911.Floyd was in and out of prison for most of his life and even though Floyd pledged never to steal again when was 18, he could not resist and went on to become notorious for robbing banks throughout the Midwest. Floyd was often protected by the locals and was similar to “Robin Hood.” He was finally found and killed by FBI agents in 1934. Through the story of Purty Boy Floyd, John Steinbeck uses his novel The Grapes of Wrath to illustrate that the prison system hurts the individuals instead of rehabilitating them. The story of Floyd is connected to the allegory of the prison system in a variety of ways throughout chapter 8. Ma Joad begins speaking of the prison system by asking Tom if prison made him “mad” like Floyd. She asks him, “You ain’t poisoned mad? You don’t hate nobody? They didn’t do nothin in that jail to rot you out with crazy mad?”(98) This is indicating how her fear of prison changes a man and Ma Joad also tells Tom that she knew Floyd's mother and according to her, prison made Floyd worse than he was before. Ma loved Tom and feared that his prison stay may have changed him into someone she didn't know at all. Ma Joad’s speech to Tom clearly had a great deal of pity and some admiration for Floyd. She says he was treated like an animal, “They shot at him like a varmint, an’ he shot back,...

V for Vendetta

...that I saw for the first time, V For Vendetta, blew my mind when I started analyzing it deeper. The movie is based around the idea of social change and revolution. The main character, V, can only be considered a ‘terrorist’ despite the well meaning he has behind his actions. This movie has fans in great numbers due to our ability to relate with V. His charisma shows through making him seemingly charming and dramatic. The movie is a symbol of rebellion, the possibility of a simple idea changing the world. As I watched the movie, a theme of terrorism seemed to arise. V is made to be likable yet he is doing anti government actions and behaving in a way that we would usually be more resilient against and brutal towards. The idea that V is fighting against an all-controlling government helps us accept that V is technically a good guy, fighting for freedom like the United States. Another common theme throughout the film is lies and deception. The government shields the truth from the public, even though they know it couldn’t possibly be true. For example, when they lie about the blowing up of the statue in the beginning. The government continues to lie about the state of danger the country is in by showing inaccurate news reports of officers shooting their own peers who happened to be dressed like V, but the government portrays the fallen officer as V, himself. The use of lies in the story line only continues when V takes Evey by false imprisonment. V portrays himself as the......

Ensuring a well-run, purposeful program responsive to participant’s needs As an early childhood educator I must have knowledge and understanding of children and their process of development and growth, training in the policies and guidelines of the childcare facility, skills to implement developmentally appropriate practices, age appropriate curriculum and effective communication skills to build and maintain relationships with the families in order to ensure a well-run, purposeful high-quality program responsive to participant’s needs. High quality standards in early education for children are met with implementing these six major goals. The first goal is to maximize the health status of the child. I would implement this goal by keeping the environment and the toys that the children use clean and sanitized daily. I would also discuss with parents care routines such as brushing and flossing and suitable times for bed to maintain the well-being of their child at home. The second goal is minimizing risks. Posting emergency procedures and practicing them periodically is what I would do to minimize risks of panics in an actual emergency. The third goal is using education as a tool. I would access community resources such as dentists and doctors to come and......

Normile and Kurniawan V. Miller; Segal V. Miller

...Normile and Kurniawan v. Miller; Segal v. Miller 3313 N.C. 98; 326 S.E.2d 11; 1985 N.C. LEXIS 1521 Facts: Plaintiff-appellants (Normile) made an offer on the defendant (Miller) seller’s home. Defendant responded with a counter-offer. The plaintiff never accepted or rejected the counter-offer and believed the house was still on the market. The next day the defendant sold the house to the plaintiff-appellee (Segal). The plaintiff-appellants are suing for specific performance, as did the plantiff-appllee, in separate actions which were consolidated by the lower court. The counter-offer by the defendant did not constitute a binding and enforceable contract. The defendant then properly revoked the counter-offer by selling the property to plaintiff-appellee and thus gave plaintiff-appellants notice of that revocation. Procedural history: Appealed from Court of Appeals for North Carolina. Currently at Supreme Court of North Carolina. Issue: Was there a clear offer and acceptance between Normile and Miller? Holding: No, Miller’s counteroffer was a revoke of Normile’s offer since it was never accepted by both parties and was not a mirror image contract. Rule of Law: An offer is a promise to do something or to refrain from doing some specific thing. An offer is the manifestation of willingness to enter into a bargain, so made as to justify another person in understanding that his assent to that bargain is invited and will conclude it. An acceptance is an offeree’s......

Lewis V. D. Hays Trucking, Inc.

...Lewis v. D. Hays Trucking, Inc. This case revolves around the liability of principals, agents, and independent contractors. The question is whether D. Hays Trucking Inc. is an employee of Hercules Inc. or is D. Hays Trucking Inc. an independent contractor? Once that question is answered, the court case becomes very clear of who is responsible for the damages caused by an accident. Here is the facts and background of the case. Hercules Inc. is large chemical corporation that has operations in Brunswick, Georgia. Hercules gathers tree stumps from various locations and parties. These tree stumps are taken to their plant in Georgia and processed. They extract a resin from the tree stumps and they in turn sell this resin to other manufacturers. D. Hays Trucking Inc. is owned and operated by Dexter Hays. According to Cheeseman (2012), Dexter Hays handled the following responsibilities: * Hired its own truckers and other employees * Paid for its employees’ workers’ compensation coverage * Paid for the company’s liability insurance * Withheld federal and state taxes from employees’ paychecks. Hercules and Hays entered into a contract. Hays would use a bulldozer to push stumps out of the ground. He would then deliver them to Hercules processing plant in Georgia using his own trucks. The contract between Hays and Hercules stated: It is understood that the Contractor is an independent contractor and that the Contractor will perform all work and......

V Chip

...The V-Chip Nicholas Vess XCOM/225 8 November 2013 Charles Webster The V-Chip Most television programs are now assigned a rating according to the system established by the television industry and, based on these ratings, the V-Chip can block content deemed not suitable by the owner. This is very effective when trying to block unsuitable programing from children. Since the device blocks anything rated inappropriate, children will not see the offensive material. Parents can now be certain that even when their children are watching television in another room, the content will still be suitable. Live shows may be a little more difficult to censor in this manner, however most live show get coded with a rating as well, based on the nature of the event. Video games, music and movies are harder to censor. As with anything else, the discretion of the parents has to come first. The parents are the ones who have to educate their children on what is and is not suitable to watch, play or listen to. I believe that the V-Chip has become a scapegoat for some parents, making them think it is no longer their responsibility to shield their kids for offensive programming. People are still going to complain, but television stations have done what they have needed to. I feel that any concerns about programming should be cordially denied. If you are not a fan of the program being shown, there are literally hundreds of other television stations......

Pink Floyd - Mother

...Mother The song is divided in two verses and two choruses. It’s written by Pink Floyd, and was released on the famous The Wall album in 1979. The album is well known all around the world, and especially the song Another brick in the wall is very significant for this album. In the two verses the song asks the mother for help to deal with different situations, such as girl problems. The two choruses are about mothers’ putting all of their fear into their children. The song deals with some various themes. Motherhood is the main theme, why it’s mentioned several times in the song, and the song often asks the mother what to do. It also deals with isolation, upbringing and overprotection. As children we always ask our mother what to do in different situations. We recognize her as an omniscient figure who always knows what’s best for us. So when we’re in doubt we always turn to our mother. But when we grow up we start to take care of ourselves and become independent. The song tells us about a person who hasn’t become independent. The mother has been overprotective, and hasn’t been able to let her son live his own unprotected life. This shows in the two verses where the song keeps asking the mother questions. In the first chorus, line 3, it says that “Momma’s gonna put all of her fears into you”, which means that even though we overprotect our children in good faith, we are might doing them a disservice by transferring some of our fears and nightmares. This will stop the......

Analysis of "Mother" by Pink Floyd

...Mother The poem “Mother” is a song written by the British band Pink Floyd, and it appears for the first time on their album “The Wall” from 1979. The poem is about a guy who’s got a very overprotecting mother. His mother wants to interfere in everything in her son’s life, and therefore he doesn’t get to do anything by himself. He doesn’t get to develop. The themes in the poem “Mother” is development, adolescence & the “mother to son”-relationship. The poem isn’t shaped like a normal song. It contains four verses, where the first and the third verse, plus the last sentence are the son talking to his mother, and where the second and the fourth verse is the mother talking to her son. In the first verse, the son asks his mother seven questions about the outside world. The mother replies to him in the second verse, where she is telling him that she is going to take care of him (“Momma's will keep Baby cozy and warm.”) They keep on communicating with each other all the way through the poem. It also says in the second verse, that “Momma's gonna make all of your nightmares come true. Momma's gonna put all of her fears into you” I interpret that as a very overprotecting mother, who always keeps everything that she think is dangerous away from her child. In that way, the child won’t get the experience that he needs to be an independent person, so he’ll take over his mothers fears, when he grow older. In the third verse, the boy is telling his mother about a girl. He is worried that......

Carter V. Us

...I chose the case Carter v. United States – Carter v. United States, 530 U.S. 255 (2000). The parties involved in this case were Floyd J. Carter, the petitioner and the United States of America, the defendant. In 1997, Mr. Carter entered the Collective Federal Savings bank with a ski mask and no weapon. Carter robbed the bank for roughly $16,000. When Carter was arrested he was charged with federal bank robbery – 18 USC Section 2113(a). This statute states "[w]hoever, by force and violence, or by intimidation, takes... any... thing of value [from a] bank." (Carter). Mr. Carter entered a not guilty plea saying that he had not taken the bank’s money by force. Violence, or intimidation, so he did not meet the requirements of the statute that he was charged under. Mr. Carter then put in a motion that the court give instructions to the jury that they should consider federal bank larceny (USC Section 2113(b). This would make Mr. Carter guilty of larceny instead of robbery. The larceny law states, “[w]hoever takes and carries away, with intent to steal or purloin, any... thing of value exceeding $1,000 [from a]... bank," (Carter). The difference between bank robbery and the larceny offense is a ten-year maximum difference – larceny carrying a 10-year maximum sentence and robbery carrying a 20-year maximum sentence. The court denied the motion and the jury found Mr. Carter guilty on robbery. This sentence was affirmed by the Court of Appeals. The question of this case...

V for Vendeta

...3434 11/23/15 V for Vendetta Analysis WR 111 C Analysis In the film, V for Vendetta, the director James McTeigue implies that ideas are bulletproof because the idea lives on through the people you've touched. The movie starts off with V saving a fearful women named Evey. She is scared of everything because her parents were killed and she watched her mother get beaten by government officials. V then goes on to explain his beliefs and ideas, and he even shows her his first act of rebellion by destroying the Old Bailey. They then run into each other a couple more times before the main events of V imprisoning Evey to help her lose her fears. She ends up wanting to die rather than give up any information for V's arrest. V does this to help her lose her fears and see what he had to go through partially. His main thing was for her to lose her fears so she would help him execute his main act of rebellion to free the society of their fear and for his ideas to live on. Once he gets all of London to follow his idea, he knows his idea will be bulletproof and it will live on through everyone he touched. V was a victim of a government ran epidemic.

Tate V. Florida and King V. Florida

...punishment in the constitution. These two cases have caught the attention of the public due to the nature of the crime and also the outcome of the court’s decisions. In 2001, Lionel Tate, 12-years-old, is convicted of a first degree murder for killing six-year-old playmate Tiffany Eunick. According to Tate’s defense attorney, the defendant was imitating wrestling stars when he claimed that he unintentionally killed the victim. Tate was sentenced to life imprisonment without parole. Tate could have been charged with manslaughter as the rules for manslaughter are geared towards charging a person for negligence versus intent to kill. However, the judge felt the slaying was “cold, callous and indescribably cruel.” In the case, King v. Florida, Alex King, 13, and Derek King, 14, were charged with first degree murder, arson and were given under 10 years in prison without parole. The King siblings killed their sleeping father and then set their house on fire to cover up their crime. The defense attorney said the brothers wanted to escape from their father and be with their neighbor, Ricky Chavis. It was said that Alex was in love with Chavis and that the old neighbor is sexually interested with the minor child. The difference between the Tate case and the King case is that the one was tried by a jury and the other was tried by a judge. Consequently a jury may be more likely to make decisions based on how persuasive the lawyers are and be much more lenient on the......

Music Pink Floyd

...Alistair K. Nye, Music 1306 Section 22148 Pink Floyd Forney, Kristine and Joseph Machlis. The Enjoyment of Music, 11th Edition / Shorter Version, Pg. 377 “The British group Pink Floyd has also exhibited great longevity: their 1973 album Dark Side of the Moon, with its ageless themes of madness and death, remained on the Top-200 charts for a record 751 weeks. Their operatic, two-album concept-piece, The Wall (1980) ensured them a place in the annals of rock. Both Pink Floyd and the Grateful Dead helped to spawn a new generation of improvisational jam bands and psychedelic trance music in the 1990s.” Moore, Allan F. Encyclopedia of Popular Music The British rock band Pink Floyd was formed in 1965 by Syd Barrett, Nick Mason, Roger Waters, and Rick Wright. They worked on several albums and were a leading force in the psychedelia movement and active participants in the counter culture of the 1960’s. They first achieved popular success with the album Atom Heart Mother released in 1970. The album was a combination of acoustic and choral songs and showed something of the style they would ultimately become most famous and recognizable for. The band would experiment with various sounds until they settled upon one that fit them and the time in which they lived. Pink Floyd had gone through a lineup change in ’68 and had replaced Syd Barrett with Dave Gilmour, who would provide the band with the slow, mournful and sometimes haunting guitar work that would prove to be...
