2. The Takings Clause of the Fifth Amendment to the Constitution allows government to take privately owned property if that property is being taken for a public purpose and if the private owner of the property is paid a fair price for the property taken. Questions have arisen under this provision about what a public purpose is and what a fair price is. One of the strangest questions that has arisen under this provision was about whether there was a taking at all. In Lucas v. South Carolina Coastal Council, Lucas owned a lot at the beach and intended to build a house on that lot. Before he could build that house, the South Carolina passed a law that prohibited building houses at the beach within a certain number of feet from the water. This “setback” from the water meant that there was no room left on Mr. Lucas’s lot for him to build a house, so he sued the state for rendering his lot useless for his purpose and, therefore, taking his property. The case was eventually presented to the U.S. Supreme Court, which decided that South Carolina had taken Mr. Lucas’s property and, therefore, had to pay him the value of the lot.
Do you think the outcome of the case was fair? Do you think this was the kind of situation that was contemplated when the Takings Clause of the Fifth Amendment was written?
3.  Serrano was accused of murdering someone in South Florida, but he claimed to have been in Atlanta, Georgia, at the time of the murder. There was a surveillance video from a hotel in Atlanta that showed Serrano at the hotel several hours before the murder occurred and several hours after the murder occurred, but prosecutors contended that after Serrano first appeared in the video, he drove to the airport in Atlanta, flew to south Florida, committed the murder, flew back to Atlanta, and drove back to the hotel where he appeared in the video the second time.
Serrano’s lawyer, Mason, gave a television interview about the case in which he ridiculed the prosecutors’ theory about how Serrano was able to commit the murder, and he said during an interview that it was simply impossible to do what prosecutors said Serrano did in the time that was available, and if anyone could prove that what prosecutors said Serrano did in the time that was available to be possible, he said he would pay them a million dollars.
Several months later, a man named Kolodziej proved that Serrano could have done what prosecutors said he did in the time available and demanded that Mason pay him a million dollars. Mason refused, and Kolodziej sued Mason for the million dollars.
The case turned on the question of whether Mason’s statement was an offer that Kolodziej could accept. What do you think? Did Mason make a valid offer that Kolodziej could accept? Why, or why not? If there was a valid offer and a valid acceptance of the offer, what kind of contract was created?

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email ( or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
