Review the links to the resources below and then explain the court system in Delaware.
Many states elect their judges which has created a great deal of debate. Much of it has to do with campaign donations. Since 2000 the Judges up for re-election have raised over 18 million in Ohio. For more detail see http://www.judicialselection.us/judicial_selection/campaigns_and_elections/campaign_financing.cfm?state=OH which explains the basics. One of the issues our Chief Justice has is that voters knew nothing about the candidates.This page was created to help – http://www.courtnewsohio.gov/happening/2015/JVCWebsite_090115.asp#.VqI9LVMrLBI. Three things that she wants to address are the influence of politics, lack of knowledge of the candidates, and better information to the public on the process in general. You can find more detail on http://ohiojudicialreform.org/ . Take a few minutes to view the survey results! That still assumes (as she does) that Judges should be elected (which is not the case in some states). The states also differ on whether the party is listed on the ticket. See the map at http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/justice/que/map.html
PBS Frontline did a segment on this you may find interesting. See http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/justice/etc/synopsis.html .
Once you have reviewed these resources, tell us about the state of Delware , how are the courts set up? What are the rules for placing a person on the court? Does it vary by level? Are they elected? Is the party included? Are there debates around fundraising or other issues? Do you have any specialty courts (like drug, Veterans courts)? In essence, explain the court system in Delaware to us!
During the Early 1900’s and late 1800’s a drastic shift from agrarian society to an industrial economy occured, bringing about new patterns of production. It created new class structure, clearly separating the wealthy and working class. Factory assembly lines replaced apprentice workshops and machines replaced skilled craftsmen. Entrepreneurs Like John D. Rockefeller and Andrew Carnegie brought about monopolies and used new tactics of vertical and horizontal integration to dominate steel and oil production. Mark Twain called this time period the “Gilded Age” by this, he meant that the era was glittering on the surface but corrupt underneath (Doc G) However, the domination of these companies and continuous use of vertical integration greatly impacted the upper and lower class, and benefited both sides of the economic spectrum positively. Vertical integration was used by many thriving companies during the gilded age. This strategy decreased cost for customers by eliminating price markups associated with buying a product from a higher company. With the level of control Vertically integrated companies had, their supply chain efficiency and profit increased (Doc D). Andrew Carnegie first used this tactic in business practice and dominated the steel market with his company Carnegie Steel. John Davison Rockefeller was an American oil industry business magnate during the gilded age. He is widely considered the wealthiest American of all time, and the richest person in modern history. His company used a different spin off of vertical integration. (Doc B) Rockefeller’s strategy of establishing a monopoly over one aspect of the production process of oil refining was labeled as horizontal integration. To eliminate his competitors, Rockefeller used his firm’s superior size to negotiate>GET ANSWER
