Sources of Law in the United States [moderate p. 7] 74. Assume that Colorado passes a new law that provides “skiing and snowboarding at excessive speed within the boundaries of a commercially operated ski area shall result in a $1,000 fine.” Charlie is convicted of violating this statute for skiing at 30 m.p.h. on a run at the Silver Peak ski area. Later, two skiers are separately charged with violating the same statute in conditions virtually identical to those when Charlie was skiing. Sam Swift was skiing at 25 m.p.h. and Barry Bomber was skiing at 35 m.p.h. Based on the precedent established in the Standfer v. United States case, what would the juries in each case decide? a. b. c. d. the two e. D Both would be found guilty because even 25 miles per hour is simply too fast. Sam would be found not guilty and Barry would be found guilty. Sam’ s case could be decided either way, but Barry would be found guilty. Either case could be decided either way because the prior case is separate from later cases.

    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.
