Updated 2/21 - Next week is up for a vote! see post below.
Original Purpose of Thread
Hello, friends.

When I judge a debate round, I always write my email on the ballot with a note that tells the competitors to email me with article requests (even if it's just "can you search for CJS on jstor"). As you know, I created the Evidence Requests a few years ago, and now fulfill requests along with other people that have been doing so from the beginning. I also exchange emails with a number of competitors; however, I will attach articles to the email, and nobody else gets to benefit from them; no one else even knows to ask for that article.

I thought I'd combine these two ideas - specific requests, and topical articles - and came up with this.

Every Tuesday (or every other Tuesday, depending on how many people watch this/request articles on a given topic), I'll post download links (mediafire) to several articles on a specific topic (or two). Why Tuesday, you ask? Because I leave my Tuesday afternoons free. Convenience.

Without further ado, I give you...

Week 1: Fines & Pleas and Rights.
Week 2: CAF.
Week 3: Exonerations.

This week's topic is CAF. (I haven't heard what cases are popular, but the majority of requests were for CAF, so that's what I looked for this time.)

Next week is Exonerations.

Updated 2/21

This week's topic is Exonerations. The majority is probably affirmative evidence, but I scanned through a couple of these and there's plenty of negative material (applications, examples, etc).

Please vote for what you would like to see next week.
Here are the options:

1. CON - Federal Compulsory Electronic Recordings Act (I need a flow or negative areas of attack before I do this one.)
2. CON - Equal Protection (Same. I don't know the case. Need a flow)
3. PRO - Mandatory Minimums

Send me a PM with your vote. The subject should have your choice. In the body, include a flow or a brief description of how you attack that particular case.
Example:
Subject: PRO - Mandatory Minimums
Body: Possible avenue of attack: argue that giving judges the power to decide the length or severity of the sentence makes the system unjust (favoritism; emotionally compromised; etc).

Unfortunately I can't continue to do this; I've just started working full-time (as well as attending school full-time). If someone has the time to do this, please do.

Could one of you PM me a basic flow or outline of your typical Peacekeeper case?

That's kind of what I meant with the "Peacekeepers PRO". The case abolishes the peacekeepers; we would need evidence on why they are useful. :)
Did you guys not look at the Abolish Peacekeeping Thread?? lol
