Either party to a civil case may appeal to a higher court against the decision. Equity – The side of the court that hears and decides cases based upon general unwritten rules of fairness as opposed to the rules of common law. Equity courts award non-monetary remedies in contrast to courts of law, which award monetary remedies. The person who starts a civil case is called a claimant, and he or she has the burden of proving that, more probably than not, the other party (the defendant) committed a civil wrong. If the claimant is successful, the usual remedy is damages: a sum of money paid by the defendant to the claimant. Other remedies, such as a court order that prohibits a person from behaving in a certain way, are available in some circumstances.

The representative of the bankruptcy estate who exercises statutory powers, principally for the benefit of the unsecured creditors, under the general supervision of the court and the direct supervision of the U.S. trustee or bankruptcy administrator. The trustee is a private individual or corporation appointed in all chapter 7, chapter 12, and chapter 13 cases and some chapter 11 cases. The trustee’s responsibilities include reviewing the debtor’s petition and schedules and bringing actions against creditors or the debtor to recover property of the bankruptcy estate. In chapter 7, the trustee liquidates property of the estate, and makes distributions to creditors. Trustees in chapter 12 and 13 have similar duties to a chapter 7 trustee and the additional responsibilities of overseeing the debtor’s plan, receiving payments from debtors, and disbursing plan payments to creditors. If, at any point during your case, you are dissatisfied with your appointed counsel and come up with the funds (perhaps from family or friends) to hire a lawyer of your choosing, you have a right to change lawyers. However, if you do so close to trial, be aware that even if your new lawyer asks for a delay in order to prepare, the court does not have to grant that request.

Allan McGregor- I wholeheartedly agree with you about the implications of the French Revolution. It is the father of all Godless political systems. Some equate the French and American revolutions but they mean far different things, as you know. In America, God gives human beings rights, which the state should honor. In France, the state gives the rights. What the state giveth, the state may take away.

Capitalism refers to a form of economy in which production is driven by private ownership. Capitalism promotes the idea of open competition and extends from the belief that a free market economy â€” one with limited regulatory control â€” is the most efficient form of economic organization. Its advocates argue that capitalism promotes economic growth, improved standards of living, higher productivity, and broader prosperity, whereas critics argue that capitalism inherently promotes inequality, exploitation of the labor class, and unsustainable use of resources and land.
rjbatty: I did the research. In ancient times, republics could be defined by many different forms of government. Today, the modern definition of a Republic, is a country that is not ruled by a monarchy. So America can have a democratic form of government and be a Republic as well. The only problem today is even though we have officials that are elected by the people, the government is not represented by the people, but by big monyed interests. They just need us to do the voting.

Your interest and understanding of history exceeds your written words.Compare and contrast Capitalism with countries that presently apply Socialism in full or in part.I differ not with you concerning Communism,it is Socialism to be addressed as plausible alternative to beloved Capitalism. I’m all ears,there is not much between them presently, factual opinions greatly appreciated.
