If such conversations are reported, it can place the suspect in a dilemma. Consider a man who appears to have overdosed on illegal narcotics. He is taken to the hospital, and the doctor asks what kind of drugs he took, in order to plan his treatment. If the man thinks that what he says could be used to prosecute him, he might lie to the doctor. Then he ...

The simple answer is: if the law says marital rape is not a crime, it is not punishable by the criminal justice system. If there were a loophole, one of the lawyers representing one of the many rape victims who have been seeking justice in India would have found it. There more than likely isn't one. Some Indian marital rape victims have tried prosecutions ...

In the United States, whatever you say to your doctor or form you fill out is protected by the doctor-patient privilige. If a district attorney or prosecutor were to present a recording or file of this in court, it would be deemed inadmissible by the judge based on the previously mentioned privilege.

Legally you face no problem. The section 66A of the Indian IT Act, which used to be previously misused for penalizing anyone who dared insult a politician, has been struck down as unconstitutional by the Supreme Court of India. But the police could still detain you for 48 hours (legally) without giving any grounds; they are required to do that, but the ...

Yes, you did something wrong; you used both the university's trade mark and copyright without their permission. I don't know the law in India, however, if it is similar to Australia it is unlikely that the police will be interested in doing anything about it.

How is the school forcing the child? If it's part of the uniform code then that is a condition of the contract between the school and the child's parents; a contract they freely entered into. If the parent's want the child to attend then they can force the child to have the haircut; or withdraw them from the school. The parent's have every right to dictate ...

The Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act, 2005 does prohibit forced sexual intercourse in a marriage. However, this Act provides civil remedies only. Marital rape has not yet been criminalised, although it is violative of the right to life under article 21 of the constitution. There have been various petitions for the formation of a law to ...

The email quoted does not say anything about domain ownership. It says that if you use the hosting hosting company's tools to modify the contents of the web site, you might cause problems, and if that happens, the web design company Company_Name will not be responsible. Further it says that if that happens, and you want Company_Name to fix the problem, there ...

Article 3 of the law states some of the the prohibited acts. However, subsections (1) limit the application of the law, stating "Whoever, not being a member of a Scheduled Caste or a Scheduled Tribe", which means that the restrictions only apply to those who are not a member of an SC or ST. The listed acts are not prohibited in the case of a Sentinelese ...

Usually, lynching and mob justice are due to (1) a lack of faith that the formal legal system is likely to produce a just result as viewed from the perspectives of the community norms of the potential participants (whether or not this is true) and (2) there is also confidence (again, not necessarily accurate) that the people carrying out the vigilante ...
