Consider yourself a contributor and I welcome you to this forum at any time.
Your background as a lawyer, historian and martial artist gives you the insight to publish on this forum, anything you feel is of interest or necessity to the Martial Arts or the martial arts practitioner.
One thing that we really need in this forum is the reporting of cases relating to self-defense with or without the use of "weapons".
I have noted that in many of the forums, such as those moderated by Van and Bill sensei, and recently by Roy sensei, hypothetical scenarios evolve wherein responsibility, guilt or negligent conduct is the underlying theme.
I try to report actual Appeals Court and SJC cases in the above areas as well as constitutional rights and issues.
Case reporting, IMHO will give the reader an insight as to the reasoning in each case, the law discussed in these cases including dicta.
Anything you can do to contribute to case law reporting, or for that matter, anything you wish to contribute relative to historical law or modern law and weapons including the general areas of liability or self-defense would be most appreciated.
