POLS 320: Introduction to Law Suggested Responses to Chapter Assignments Chapter 4: The Executive ASSIGNMENT 4.2 Consider the following situation. Identify which agency listed may have an impact on which element. Explain your answer. Situation: Marie’s adult son was killed in a tragic accident while on a vacation thousands of miles from home, in another country. He allegedly consumed fruit from a tree that turned out to be poisonous. Marie wants to have her son’s remains brought back into the United States along with samples of the fruit so that an autopsy and tests can be performed to determine the true cause of death. Afterward, she wants a local funeral home to cremate the remains together with her son’s prized possession, his laptop computer, and place them in two special containers. Her son was a metallurgical engineer and she wants the remains sealed in two titanium boxes her son had made himself while in college. She then wants to mail one box of remains overnight to a relative who lives near what was her son’s favorite destination for trout fishing at a national park. There she wants the relative to break the seal and scatter part of the remains over the trout hatchery within the park, and part of the remains in an adjacent public waterway. She wants to hand-carry the other remains herself, in a second sealed metal box, by plane to a second destination to scatter them in a state park that also contained federally protected wetlands where her son played as a child. Finally, she wants to keep a small amount of the remains and send them by a simple paper envelope to her son’s father, who abandoned the family when her son was a child, as a symbolic gesture of how little value her former husband placed on her son’s life. The elements of concern in completing Marie’s wishes include: a. Transportation of the body into the United States from a foreign country b. Transportation of food products into the United States from a foreign country c. Cremation of a laptop computer in a privately owned crematory licensed only for human and animal remains d. Transportation of remains by air in a sealed metal box as cargo e. Carry-on luggage consisting of a sealed metal box on a public aircraft f. Disposition of the remains in a national park g. Disposition of the remains in a state park h. Disposition of the remains in a trout hatchery i. Disposition of the remains in a public waterway j. Transportation of human remains in a paper container

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
