Extractions: Introduction Today there are literally millions of laws (and millions of lawsuits), there are laws covering virtually every field of human endeavor and the number is growing. This growth is not only numerical, it is substantive. As the law grows, it changes because courts are constantly interpreting laws by applying them to particular circumstances. For this reason law has been characterized as a seamless web. What follows is a general framework for understanding the legal system, followed by basic introductions to selected legal areas. General Introductory information: Massachusetts Criminal Lawyers The Common Law The legal system of the United States is based on the common law of England. Even though the colonies revolted against the British empire, they retained its legal institutions. In fact, the colonists revolted precisely because they believed that their common law rights were being taken away. Today English law is still the law of the land in some states. The California civil code (Section 22.2) states that the "common law of England, so far as it is not repugnant to or inconsistent with the Constitution of the United States, or Constitution or laws of this state, is the rule of decision in all the courts of this state." The distinguishing features of the common law are that it is based on a system of rights and most of the law is judge-made. Rights are an abstract concept that can be confusing, but the basic idea is straightforward. Rights can be thought of as domains or spheres in which people are free to act without interference. The common law evolved to protect and define this "space." The legal categories that most people are familiar with are common law rights. Property defines the right to possess and own things. Contracts deal with the transfer and exchange of rights. Torts protect rights from accidents and aggression.

Massachusetts' Sodomy Law massachusetts' Sodomy law. massachusetts wages war against consensual sexualacts between adults with two separate criminal code statutes. 272 § 34. http://www.sodomy.org/laws/massachusetts/
Extractions: Massachusetts wages war against consensual sexual acts between adults with two separate Criminal Code statutes. 272 § 34. Crime against nature outlaws the " abominable and detestible crime against nature " and awards upon successful prosecution a punishment of imprisonment in the state prison for not more than twenty years. Massachusetts Criminal Code 272 § 35. Unnatural and lascivious acts outlaws " any unnatural and lascivious act with another person " and provides upon successful prosecution a punishment by a fine of not less than one hundred not more than one thousand dollars or imprisonment in the state prison for not more than five years or in jail of the house of correction for not more than two and one half years. The phrase " unnatural and lascivious acts " was deemed unconstitutionally vague as applied to acts of fellatio and oral-anal contact. ([Balthazar v. Superior Court of Com. of Mass. (C.A.1978) 573 F.2d 698]) It is uncertain if a similar complaint could be successfully made against for being unconstitutionally vague in its phrasing intending to punish the " abominable and detestible crime against nature
Extractions: http://www.boston.com/dailynews/350/region/Gay_rights_group_challenges_st:.shtml By Steve Leblanc BOSTON In Mark Merantes eyes, the life he shares with his long time partner Adrien Saks is a committed, loving relationship. But a 350-year-old Massachusetts law describes the couples physical expression of that love as an "abominable and detestable crime against nature" punishable by a lengthy jail term. Its a law Merante is determined to wipe off the states criminal code. The 35-year-old Boston attorney and his partner are two of ten plaintiffs, gay and straight, who are asking the states highest court to rule unconstitutional laws that bar certain sex acts. As part of the lawsuit, Merante and the other plaintiffs acknowledge engaging in the forbidden activities. "As two openly gay may who have been together seven years, unless we were celibate, pretty much everyone can figure out we had broken those laws at some point," Merante said. "What consenting adults choose to do in private should be left to them." The anti-sodomy laws, which date to colonial times, establish penalties of up to 20 years for anal intercourse and 5 years for any "unnatural and lascivious act," interpreted to mean oral sex.
Extractions: The Sensibilities of Our Forefathers The History of Sodomy Laws in the United States By George Painter Maine "We have no doubt that citizens generally consider sodomy detestable and abominable. It is a dirty business." The Post-Revolution Period, 1776-1873 For two centuries, Maine was part of Massachusetts. It was separated in 1820 and admitted as a state, carrying the laws of Massachusetts with it. This made sodomy, under the Massachusetts law, male-only in applicability and punishable by hard labor for up to 10 years. In 1821, a separate sodomy law was enacted that copied the sex discrimination in the Massachusetts law, stating: That if any man shall commit the crime against nature with a man or male child, or man or woman shall have carnal copulation with a beast... This law remained until a revision of 1840 eliminated the gender-specific wording, the one year of solitary, and the hard labor provision. The word "detestable" was added to "crime against nature." The ten-year maximum remained. A new law of 1857 deleted the word "detestable" and established a minimum penalty of one year, with the 10-year maximum again retained.

Death By Religious Exemption child neglect law in the criminal code that requires even more problematic since thelaw it was Additionally, a decision by the massachusetts Supreme Judicial http://www.masskids.org/dbre/dbre_6.html
Extractions: Sheridan Death - 1967 In 1967, five-year-old Lisa Sheridan of Cape Cod died of pneumonia. She had been seriously ill for three weeks and received no medical care. Her mother, a Christian Scientist, attempted to treat Lisa's illness solely by prayer. That same year the mother, Dorothy Sheridan, was convicted by a jury of involuntary manslaughter for failing to provide her daughter with sufficient medical care. In his instruction to the jury in the Sheridan case, the judge referred to a section of the state's then existing child neglect law (Chapter 273, section 1) which set criminal misdemeanor penalties for any parent of a minor child who " willfully fails to provide necessary and proper physical care." The judge ruled the phrase "proper physical care" to mean "medical attention." Religious Exemption - 1971 In 1971, in an effort to eliminate any requirement under the child neglect law that Christian Science parents must provide their children with medical attention, the Christian Science Church successfully lobbied the Massachusetts legislature to pass the religious exemption law. The law added the following language to the child neglect law (Chapter 273, section 1):
