  • U.S. Supreme Court to Review Legality of Massachusetts’s Abortion Buffer Zone Law In 2007, the Massachusetts Abortion Buffer Zone Law came into effect.  It permits a yellow line to be painted on the ground 35 feet away from any abortion clinic, indicating where people cannot cross while expressing their views on abortion.  The purpose is to protect those entering the building, as there have been instances where protesters may try to physically harm those that what to gain access to the building. But does it go too far in limiting our First Amendment rights? Among other rights, the First Amendment to the Constitution protects people’s freedom of assembly and freedom of speech.  The freedom of assembly essentially allows people to gather for a like-cause in a public place.  Generally, this ...

  • Can e-mails satisfy the statute of frauds and create binding contracts? Contracts for the sale of real estate must be in writing and signed.  This requirement is often called the “Statute of Frauds” which can be traced back to English common law.  The Massachusetts version of this law can be found at G.L. c 259, s 1.  This means that the agreement cannot simply have a “hand shake” to seal the deal. In modern times though, what constitutes “writing” and “signed”?  Of course the standard paper and pen is what automatically comes to mind.  But in this ever changing technological world we live in, can e-mails count? Massachusetts has adopted the 2004 Uniform Electronic Transactions Act which can be seen at G.L. c 110G.  This Act helped validate ...

  • Rising Flood Insurance Premiums’ Impact on Massachusetts Most homeowner’s insurance policies do not include flood insurance in its coverage.  Before flood insurance, property owners who experienced devastation from floods were often left to their own devices when it came to rebuilding.  In 1968, Congress created the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) to help aid those people who have experienced hardship from floods and bridge the gap. Due to huge flooding devastations from natural disasters such as Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and Hurricane Sandy in 2012, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has been hit with a $24 billion deficit after giving payouts to those that were affected. In response to this, The Biggert Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012 requires FEMA and other agencies to make ...
