Res ipsa loquitur -
In the common law of torts, res ipsa loquitur (Latin for "the thing speaks for itself") is a doctrine that infers negligence from the very nature of an accident or injury in the absence of direct evidence on how any defendant behaved. Although modern formulations differ by jurisdiction, common law originally stated that the accident must satisfy the necessary elements of negligence: duty, breach of duty, causation, and injury. In res ipsa loquitur, the elements of duty of care, breach and causation are inferred from an injury that does not ordinarily occur without negligence.

Uti possidetis - "Latin term which means ‘as you possess’. According to this principle of international law, the parties to a treaty can retain possession of what they have acquired by force during the war.

Territories and property can remain in the hands of a belligerent state after a war, unless otherwise provided by a treaty. When a war ends a treaty formed can adopt the principle of uti possidetis, or the principle of status quo ante bellum, or a combination of the two. The principle of status quo ante bellum means ‘the state of things before the war’. If a treaty consists of no condition regarding the possession of property and territory taken by force, the doctrine of uti possidetis will prevail."

On this day back in 1957 the Civil Rights Act of 1957 was the first federal civil rights legislation to pass congress since 1875. It is noted that while this was not a cure to the racial and gender disparity in the United States at that time it was an important kick-start to the federal government choosiny to take a stand on civil rights. This bill did not include sex or race as a definition of citizenship and unlocked the door to women and racial minorities rights' to vote.

Term of the week:
In pari delicto - adv. (in pah-ree dee-lick-toe) Latin for "in equal fault," which means that two (or more) people are all at fault or are all guilty of a crime. In contract law, if the fault is more or less equal then neither party can claim breach of the contract by the other; in an accident, neither can collect damages, unless the fault is more on one than the other under the rule of "comparative negligence"; in defense of a criminal charge, one defendant will have a difficult time blaming the other for inducing him or her into the criminal acts if the proof is that both were involved.
