    The two slave owners pedro Monte and jose Ruiz hands are not clean, because doctrine of clean hands said you cannot be served justice if you committed a crime in the past. Jose and pedro was the slave owners they had took them from africa and lied and said that they were from cuba because they knew they ware suppose to get them from acrros the warter sincw 1807.

    the doctrine of clean hands is when a person has clean hands and did stuff legally and got his car stolen, that means he has clean hands. Clean hands add into clean justice and the judge can help you only if you have ”clean hands”. montes and ruiz hands were dirty because they did a illegal thing, they have stolen slaves from africa and assume to have them back but they have non-clean hands, montes and Ruiz committed a crime.

    what happened on the amistad is that the africans are not from cuba they are from africa. Montes and ruis took the africans from africa. This was a crime since 1807. So when they go to court to get their slaves back the court will not want to help them, because they broke the law to start with.

    yes it does because montes & ruis brought slaves from africa and it was illegal from 1807 to then . So there for montes & ruis don’t have clean hands and the court wont help people if they don’t have clean hands. the doctrine of clean hand mean if u did a crime the court is not going to want to help you because you did a crime and your hands is not clean.

Under the law of The Doctrine of Clean Hands means they cannot get justice unless their hands are clean. The Doctrine of Clean Hands means that if you have committed a crime,they will not care and you will not win the case.

    That the Doctrine says you cannot have dirty hand if you want help from the court. This means you can’t get into trouble if you want the court to help you. Montes and Ruiz brought slaves from Africa and this was against the law. So There hands were not clean.

    Montez and Ruiz wanted their slaves back but it wasn’t their property. Because they could not take the slaves over the ocean. Montez and Ruiz went to Africa and it was illegal to take the slaves. The Clean Hands doctrine means that Montez and Ruiz can’t get their slaves back because they committed a crime.
