Lavery quoted the following sentence from Jurisprudence as it appears in the 7th edition of Black`s Law Dictionary: “With regard to legal theory, a person is any being who considers the law capable of rights and duties.” Therefore, the use of the word “person” often makes entities less accountable to the law by making the legal language clearer and more general (and therefore containing fewer gaps). For example, a law that uses the word “person” could say: I am also aware that the word “individual” differs from corporations in the different case law definitions of “natural person” and “legal person” or “artificial person”. The “natural person” is defined as a human being born alive by Black`s Law Dictionary. So, is “individual” in dictionary law synonymous with “natural person” and therefore a “human being”? According to the Sílvio de Salvo Venosa, “legal personality is a projection of the intimate and psychic personality of each person; it is a social projection of the psychic personality, with legal consequences.  In addition, however, the law also confers personality on other entities consisting of groups of persons or property: these are called legal persons. I think it would be wise to first look at your state and the federal constitutions, what are the requirements for the legislature to create a law. Almost all laws are supposed to be individual subjects. More or less means that, for example, a property law. Ownership is the only problem. But it can be real estate, personal property, intellectual property, etc.
And every corporate state usually has a “GOVERNMENT CODE” (aka. GVC) for the Corporate State. In the GVC you will find the requirements for the construction of CODES. This reflects the requirements for specific grammatical, technical or other words used for construction. This “single subject” is still a requirement of the Constitution. And generally, you will find definitions that apply to all CODES. Take, for example, in Texas, Section 311.05(b) of the TEXAS GOVERNMENT CODE defines the term “person”; includes corporations, organizations, state or government subdivisions or agencies, commercial trusts, estates, trusts, partnerships, associations and any other legal entity. Now, if you remember that this definition was a single subject, it excludes you and me because you are not one of the defined “people.” But if you look at all the things that are presented to you in capital letters, and even if you are not, you agree that this legal entity is you. All these words as citizen, natural person or whatever name they have created are not really what you and I are defined in the Constitutions and the Bill of Rights, “the people” because “people” cannot bear arms, they are legal fictions. Now you have a single problem that doesn`t include legal entities, and the definition would be people, people in general or collectively. I hope this helps you? “The term `person` includes `partnerships`” In re Julian, 22 F.Supp. 97 (1938) “The word `person` is defined as including businesses and corporations.” Joseph R.
Peebles Sons Co. v. State Board of Pharmacy, 127 Ohio St. 513, 189 N.E. 447, 448 (1934) The term `person` is also often used in the sense that it refers to the contracting authority and not the representative when a representative acts on behalf of the contracting authority. A county is a person in the legal sense of the term, Lancaster Co. v. Trimble, 34 Neb. 752, 52 N.W. 711; but he is not a sovereign; In re Fox, 52 N.Y.
535, 11 Am.Rep. 751; USA v. Fox 94 U.S. 315, 24 L.Ed. 192 Black`s Law Dictionary, 4th Ed., p 1300 There are isolated times when the word “person” does not include minors and persons with disabilities who are unable to pursue or enter into contracts in their own name due to lack of legal capacity. The Nonhuman Rights Project`s habeas corpus litigation requires the courts to deal with it and determine whether our tenants of non-human animals are legal entities and not mere legal issues. This distinction has a profound meaning. Legal persons may have fundamental legal rights, including the right to physical liberty; Legal issues, on the other hand, have no rights. Not only do we present centuries of precedents to the courts in support of our personality arguments, but we also present hundreds of pages of undisputed and solid scientific evidence showing that chimpanzees and elephants are autonomous beings.
WHO OR WHAT IS A PERSON? The word “person” is a legal word in the American legal system and one of the most important you need to understand if you want to know the law. The word “person” is a word of legal language; the language of the court. The word person is defined in Black`s Law Dictionary (as well as in other legal dictionaries), the definition is almost an entire page to describe the word “person”. The word person is divided into two categories: artificial persons and natural persons. A person in the general sense of the term is a living person. A person in the general sense in the legal field is a non-living entity, that is, a company or a human being in a corporate function, which means that the person works on the clock, whether for the government in an official capacity or a person working for a company (either for himself or for the company of another person). When a law or code uses the word “person”. In most cases, it is not people as in the case of men or women, but artificial people such as businesses, government agencies and people who are as a business because they work on the clock for a company active in commerce. When a person (or persons) comes from work and leaves his job (profession), he is no longer called person(s) because he is not a company, he is then called a natural person. Now, after more than two years of waiting and nearly five years since the Lavery decision, the NhRP is pleased to announce that the 11th edition of Black`s Law Dictionary has finally been published – with the decades-old bug that has been officially fixed. Black`s Law Dictionary cites case law and reads correctly: “With regard to legal theory, a person is any being who considers the law to be capable of rights or duties. How does the United States define the word “person” in the legal sense of the word? I know the Dictionary Act defines him as an “individual” or a corporation, but that leaves open the question: what is a “person” under U.S.
law? There is Black`s Law Dictionary, which defines “person” as a “human being.” But in 2017, the NhRP discovered that the quoted sentence from Jurisprudence – as it actually appears in the treaty – contains a crucial difference from the version that ended in Lavery. The case law actually says: “As far as legal theory is concerned, a person is any being that the law considers capable of rights or duties.” “Rights or Obligations” – not, as in Black`s Law Dictionary, “Rights and Obligations”. A human being, born naturally, as opposed to a legally generated legal entity. However, a company or non-governmental organization may take legal action or own property as a legal entity. The following statistical data sources are used in this survey: other statistical surveys: earnings of employed persons per legal person (ZAP/M), earnings of employed persons per registered natural person (ZAP-RFMO), Labour Force Survey (ANP) and Structure of Working Time Survey (ZAP-SDÄ); Calendar of the Statistical Register of Employment (SRDAP) (data on the number of public holidays and other non-working days).
