Congressman faces charges of public corruption

Part of a politician's job is earning the trust of the constituents. This is often a challenge, especially when working against the tactics of the opponent and the zeal of the press.

That is not always bad since citizens who contribute to political campaigns have a right to know how their candidates are spending the money. Otherwise, there may be investigations into public corruption.

Civil litigation is an option for breach of partnership contract

In California and across the country, business partnerships are often compared to marriages. They include many similar characteristics in the way partners run the business together, and they may end in civil litigation if the partners are no longer able to get along.
