separation of powers into the three branches of the government? Why or

necessary to assign to a particular branch? Why or why not?

Question 2:

Upset at seeing Russia invade Ukraine and the United States’ refusal to send

Ukraine fighter planes and troops, Ursula files a lawsuit against President

Biden. Ursula is a citizen of the United States, has never been to Ukraine,

lawsuit? Why or why not?

Question 3:

Hamad is an Uber driver in Boulder, Colorado. While stopped at a red light,

he is hit from behind by a FedEx truck driven by Federico. FedEx refuses to

pay for the damages because Federico’s route is in Denver, he was not

lawsuit against FedEx in Denver District Court. Does this court have proper

venue over the accident? Why or why not?
