does the Eighth Amendment, which forbids "excessive fines," restrict the fees state and local governments can impose?
Holly Homeowner was a homeowner no more. Due to a protracted illness, she was unable to work. When her disability benefits ran out, she was unable to make her mortgage payment. Subsequently, she lost her home to foreclosure. She signed an agreement with her mortgage lender allowing the foreclosure, relinquished ownership of the house, and moved out. Three years after she moved out, a code inspector came to the house, which had been vacant. The inspector found an overgrown backyard, and a swimming pool that had turned into a mosquito-infested cesspool. The City sent Holly, who was still listed as the homeowner in county property records, a letter informing her of the problems. The City began to fine her $100 a day. The letter was returned to the City as “undeliverable”, with no forwarding address. Successive letters were, again, returned to the City as “undeliverable”, with no forwarding address. The City continued fining Holly $100 a day. Holly met one on her old neighbors for lunch on Wednesday. He handed Holly one on the letters from the city that was mistakenly deposited in his mailbox on Tuesday. The letter stated Holly owed the City $105,000.00 in fees and penalties. Holly is in your office and asks if the City can impose such excessive fines7 AnswersRenting & Real Estate6 months ago

The effectiveness of a blood-pressure drug is being investigated. An experimenter finds that, on average, the reduction in systolic blood pressure is 23.5 for a sample of size 20 and standard deviation 16.5. Estimate how much the drug will lower a typical patient's systolic blood pressure (using a 98% confidence level). Assume the data is from a normally distributed population.Personal Finance11 months ago
