2. Baker v. Carr (1962)

3. The 15th amendment has to do with the right to vote. The cases Baker v. Carr was arguing the number of legislators in the state Tennessee can have .Legislators are a group of people who vote for you in almost any election.
4. This cases went to supreme court and in a 6-2 ruling they said that federal courts have the right to decide cases about voting rights and so the case got sent back down to the lower courts.

5. the decision meant that the supreme court didn't have to decide the case because all voting cases are handled in the federal court. This impacted our country because now if a case has anything to do with voting it stays with the federal courts.





1.Jenniffer Molina
2.Bank of China , NY Branch Vs. NBNLLL E.T.L.L
3.Subject:Cilvil racketing, fraud, reasonable reliance
4.The Bank of China alleged that in 1991, John Chou and Sherry Liu began an elaborate scheme to defraud the bank that included huge sums of money being borrowed through false and misleading representations and forged documents.
The Bank of China claimed that the married couple defaulted on loan obligations, converted the borrowed funds into different currencies and transferred the funds into accounts that were represented as those of independent businesses. The Bank of China claimed the accounts were not independent, but controlled by Chou and Liu as part of the scheme.
The borrowed funds were falsely represented to the Bank of China to be "trade debt" owed to Chou and Liu, which created the appearance that the "third-party businesses" were thriving and had cash flows to sustain the borrowing limits set by the Bank of China. The borrowed funds were also disguised as collateral for further loans, creating further indebtedness to the bank.
Additional money was drawn down against letters of credit issued under the presentation of false and forged documents for non-existent transactions.
Finally, the Bank of China alleged Patrick Young, a former deputy manager of the bank, accepted bribes in exchange for handling the fraudulent exchanges between the accused and the bank.
Young was paid a $120,000 bribe to make false representations and submit false representations to Bank of China management. Young was convicted and served 10 months in prison. He also was in jail for 46 months an five more months at home with police surrounding him.
5. I think this crime was serious and it costed many problems for the bank.

2. Smith vs. Allwright(1944)
3. In 1923, Texas adopted a statue that said that no negro would be able to vote in a Democratic Primary Election in that state. A negro, eligable to vote, exept for the statue, was denied the opportunity to vote in that election. He brought action against the judges of the election, for refusing to accept his ballot.
4. In a unanimous decision, the court repealed the statue, giving the negros their right to vote in the state primary.
5. This teaches us that you cannot take away anyone's rights on account of race, gender, or anything.
