However, this was not legally tested until the case of case of Corbett vs. Corbett, where Arthur Corbett attempted to annul his marriage to April Ashley on the grounds that transsexuals were not recognised in English law.
Ormord J found that since Ashley had male gonads, genitalia and chromosomes at birth, her "true sex" was male at the time of her birth, and that her "true sex" could not be changed.
Holding that the sex of a person for the purposes of marriage is their sex at the time of the marriage, he found Kevin to be a man within the ordinary, contemporaneous meaning of the word and declared his marriage was therefore valid.

 Nat' Academies Press, The Computer-Based Patient Record: An Essential Technology for Health Care, Revised Edition (1997)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
Assuming that hospitals include compliance with legal requirements in their feasibility analysis of computer-based patient information systems, the lack of national uniformity in the medical records requirements of state licensure laws and regulations applicable to institutional health care providers may be expected to retard development and marketing of new computer-based patient record systems.
A serious legal barrier to full realization of the potential of computer-based patient records is the confusion and lack of clarity in some states' standards when they are applied to computer-based medical records.
The greatest legal risk from computer-based patient record keeping comes from unauthorized access to record systems and from computer viruses and other sabotage, particularly in cases in which computer networks are used and there is telephone access to the patient information system.

 Lecture 6
An interesting legal point is that no where in this act are the terms "computer", "program" or "data" defined, this was recommended by the Law Commission on the grounds that the pace of technological change would soon render such definitions outdated.
It must be shown that the defendant intended to impair the operation of the computer, or to prevent access to any program or data, or to impair the reliability of such a program or data.
The first major case brought under the Computer Misuse Act was heard at Southwark Crown Court in 1993, 3 men, one of them, Paul Bedworth, a computer science student at Edinburgh University, were accused of hacking into University systems all over the world and into the EC systems in Luxembourg.

Legal expenses associated with forming a partnership are greater than those of a sole proprietorship but are less than for incorporation.
This type of legal organization retains the liability protection of a corporation but permits a shareholder to apply business losses against ordinary income -- just as is allowed in a sole proprietorship or partnership -- thus avoiding the double taxation of the C corporation.
The Limited Liability Company is a legal classification that combines the "pass-through" taxation that partnerships and S corporations enjoy, and also provides for personal limits on liability, as does a limited partnership or a corporation.

 Why EMAG is Pursuing the Legal Aspects of the Equitable Crisis
It is easy entirely to misunderstand the legal position, and the cost and other consequences for the members and for the Society.
I believe that EMAG should encourage the Society to test and clarify the immediate legal and regulatory framework, so that there is no land left for adventitious proceedings by others.
When EMAG members understand where their legal entitlements lie, then they can take informed decisions on the forward management of their policies.

 Legal Aspects of Ice-Pick Testing - Bruce Gabrielson
If an individual has a reasonable expectation of privacy in his or her computer (hardware or software), there must be some legal safeguards put in place before a search and seizure of the computer or communications can take place.
Note that even in situations where government employers or supervisors seek access to an employee's computer (or office, desk, etc.) There must be, in the absence of a warrant, a reasonableness determination and a balancing of the employee's privacy interests that will withstand judicial security.
Computers that meet the National Computer Security Center's (NCSC's) trusting criteria have integrated safeguards into their operation such that only the users "trusted" to have access to the restricted data can actually gain access.

Under the legal system in continental Europe parties who have reached an agreement on the essential elements of a deal can be considered to be bound by it, even if there is not yet a written and signed document.
The legal core of the transfer of technology is constituted by a licensing agreement.
The best way to solve it, and this is included in many legal procedures to be followed when contributions in kind are made, is to request an auditor's report on the value of the technology.

 Legal Aspects of using Electronic Mail (email) to conduct business at the University of New England

 CHAPTER 4. LEGAL ASPECTS OF REGIONAL INTEGRATION
The calculation is done by the WTO Secretariat based on import statistics for a previous representative period on a tariff-line basis using the methodology used to compute the tariff offers in the Uruguay Round negotiations.
On market access commitments, Crawford and Laird (2000) point to a potential conflict between the Uruguay Round methodology of computing arithmetic averages of tariffs to establish commitments in the agricultural sector and the import-weighted average of tariffs set out in the Understanding to Article XXIV to determine the WTO-consistency of an RTA.
While, legally, there is no requirement on a member of an FTA to change its domestic tariff policy as a condition of membership, the issue may arise if a member raises its applied rate within its bound rate at the time of membership.
