Applying the doctrine of “police powers”

• example:  highway speed limit laws protect everyone (drivers, passengers, and pedestrians), but also restrict the freedom of drivers to drive at a speed of their choice – on balance, the restriction is easily justified as there is an important purpose in protecting drivers, passengers, and pedestrians

• example:  laws that prohibit alcohol consumption/purchase by minors grant rights to those 21 years and older, and restrict rights of those under 21 years – on balance, society, legislatures, and courts have determined this law is justified as Society has a strong public interest in protecting minors who may not have reached a level of maturity and judgment to handle the right to choose to consume/purchase alcohol

(11)  the familiar symbol for law and the legal system is the Scale of Justice showing a blindfolded lady that represents the weighing and balancing process necessary to balance rights v. restrictions granted and imposed by laws.

Instructions:

Review all assigned materials in Overview.

To explain constitutional law and how it might apply to GC operations and transactions, you decide to prepare a hypothetical example scenario and an accompanying analysis to present to GC owners.

Assume the hypothetical scenario you prepared is as follows:

Hypothetical Example Scenario:    EPI sells its green cleaning products to customers in most states.  Its biggest product sales are in the Mid-Atlantic states.

Recently, the Delaware legislature enacted a law banning all sales and importation of EPI’s “Brite Clean Floor Cleaner” in Delaware until further notice.  It was discovered that one of the ingredients, derived from corn, is contaminated and causes a quick-growing mold to spread on surfaces to which it is applied. The mold can be toxic to humans and can cause damage to floors.

EPI challenged the new law as unconstitutional.
