The moral is, "Be afraid.  Be VERY afraid..."

(Since I truly gave it 100% and just barely passed by the skin on my teeth.)

Distance Education Law Schools / Baby Bar--
« on: September 08, 2005, 06:43:22 PM »
Okay, I'm taking the Baby Bar on October 25th, and I'm starting to get a little stressed.

I'm doing 100 MBE's a day, and just hoping for the best...

General Board / "Officious intermedler."
« on: January 05, 2005, 06:48:57 PM »
Does anyone know what an "officious intermedler" is, in regards to a Defense against a Libel suit?  The context I saw it in was one of the Defense of Interest of Others.

In other kinds of Torts, it's usually like a Good Samaritan.

But how would an "officious intermedler" be involved in Defense of Interest of Others, as a Defense against libel?

It was in an outline, and it said, "Beware officious intermedler."  From the context, it looked like the "officious intermedler" could hamper the defense of "interest of others"--which is a qualified defense to a libel suit.

Thanks,

General Board / Dead Man's Statute
« on: December 20, 2004, 07:52:11 PM »
Does anyone know which states still have the dead man's statute?  (It precludes testimony against the estate of a deceased or incapacitated person.)

I think it's about a dozen, and District of Columbia.

Georgia repealed it on July 1, 1979--but conversations before the repeal are protected.  I just briefed this one case called "Kitfield v. Henderson," wherein Kitfield was guaranteed lifetime employment by an officer of Henderson's company in 1964--who subsequently died.

The testimony was barred and they found for the defendant.

Anyway, the most interesting thing about the statute is the ways that you get around it.

Thanks,

Does anyone know of--or want to start--a study group for distance-learning law school students in the Atlanta, GA area?

I am a first-year student at NWCU.

Thank you,
