Your Person Legal

Since the 19th century, the legal person has been interpreted more broadly to make it a citizen, domicile or domicile of a state (usually for the purposes of personal jurisdiction). In Louisville, C. & C.R. Co. v. Letson, 2 Wie. 497, 558, 11 L.Ed. 353 (1844), the United States Supreme Court held that, for the purposes of this case, a corporation “may be treated both as a citizen [of the State which created it] and as an individual.” Ten years later, they confirmed Letson`s conclusion, albeit on the slightly different theory that “those who use the company`s name and exercise the powers it confers” should be conclusively regarded as citizens of the company`s founding state. Marshall v.

Baltimore & Ohio R. Co., 16 Wie. 314, 329, 14 L.Ed. 953 (1854). These concepts have been codified by law because U.S. jurisdiction laws relate specifically to corporate domicile. In legal proceedings involving animals, animals have the status of “legal persons” and humans have a legal obligation to act as “loco parentis” for the welfare of animals, as a parent does to minor children. A court ruled in 2014 in the case “Animal Welfare Board of India vs Nagaraja” that animals are also entitled to the fundamental right to liberty enshrined in Article 21 of the Indian Constitution[23], i.e. the right to life, personal liberty and the right to die with dignity (passive euthanasia). In another case, a court in the state of Uttarakhand ordered animals to have the same rights as humans. In another cow smuggling case, the High Court of Punjab and Haryana ordered that “the entire animal kingdom, including species of birds and aquatic animals” should have a “separate legal personality with the corresponding rights, duties and responsibilities of a living person” and that humans be “loco parentis” while setting standards for animal welfare, veterinary treatment, food and shelter, for example.

Wagons hauled by animals must not have more than four persons and carriers must not be loaded beyond the established limits, and these limits must be halved if the animals are to carry the load on a slope. [22] In legal proceedings involving natural persons, the Uttarakhand High Court ordered that the Ganges and Yamuna rivers and all waters be “living units”, i.e. “legal persons”, and appointed three persons as trustees to protect the rights of rivers from man-made pollution, such as “pilgrims` bathing rituals”. [22] The term “legal person” is also relevant in electoral law. In Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, 558 U.S. 310 (2010), the Supreme Court upheld the legal personality of corporations seeking to contribute to political campaigns. Brazilian law recognizes any association or abstract entity as a legal entity, but a registry is required by a constitutional document, with specifications that depend on the category of legal entity and the local law of the state and city.

Article 19(3) of the Basic Law provides: “Fundamental rights shall also apply to national legal persons, so far as the nature of those rights so permits.” [21] Since legal personality is a prerequisite for legal capacity (the capacity of any legal person to modify (conclude, transfer, etc.) its rights and obligations), it is a prerequisite for an international organisation to be able to sign international treaties in its own name. In law, a corporation is any person or “thing” (less ambiguously any corporation)[1][2] that can do the things that an ordinary person can normally do in law – such as entering into contracts, suing and being sued, owning property, etc. [3] [4] [5] The rationale for the term “corporation” is that some legal entities are not persons: corporations and corporations are legally “persons” (they can legally do most of the things that an ordinary person can do), but they are clearly not persons in the ordinary sense of the word. Foreign governments that would otherwise have the right to bring an action in U.S. courts are “persons” who have the right to bring an action for triple damages for alleged violations of antitrust laws under the Clayton Act (15 U.S.C.A. § 12 et seq.). Registered trade unions are legal persons. They may, by uniform representation proportional to their members, conclude collective agreements binding on all persons belonging to the categories specified in the agreement. The term “legal person” can be ambiguous as it is often used as a synonym for terms that refer only to non-human legal persons, especially as opposed to “natural person”.

[10] [11] According to Indian law, “shebaitship” is the property belonging to the deity or idol as a “legal person”. People who are destined to act in the name of divinity are called “shebait”. A shebait acts as guardian or guardian of the deity to protect the right of the deity and fulfill the legal duties of the deity.
