Sample Text from Images of the Law

Freedom of Speech

In a democracy, ideas must be allowed into the “marketplace” so that people will be better informed and better able to exercise their right to vote. The government should not be allowed to censor people in their discussion of ideas, especially regarding their discussion of government. The “marketplace of ideas” theory is a justification for protecting speech under the First Amendment.


The tort of defamation requires that the defamatory statement be “published.” That does not mean that the words must be printed in a book or newspaper. Publication just means getting the information or potentially defamatory material to a third party who understands it. The man on the bullhorn talking into a crowd would meet the standard for “publishing” if he was speaking defamatory statements. Defamation also requires the publication to third parties to be done intentionally or negligently.


The UCC section 2-305(1) does not invalidate a contract simply because the parties fail to specify a price. If the parties intend to contract, but fail to specify a price, the price is the reasonable price for the items at the time of delivery. In this image, the DNC ordered 100,000 balloons and the vendor delivered them. The contract however, failed to state a price. The cost of the 100.000 balloons would be governed by the UCC.

Accomplice Liability

Under the Model Penal Code, a person who obtains a weapon for another, knowing the second person intends to use it to commit a crime (like robbing the Bank of Los Angeles), could be charged as an “accessory before the fact.”
