Outsourcing Sacrifice: The Labor Of Private Military Contractors, Mateo Taussig-Rubbo Nov 2017

Outsourcing Sacrifice: The Labor Of Private Military Contractors, Mateo Taussig-Rubbo

Mateo Taussig-Rubbo

Numerous scandals arising from the United States government's increased use of armed private military contractors have drawn attention to the contractors' legally ill-defined position. But the complexity of the contractors' relation to various bodies of law and doctrine - including military law, international law, state tort law, employment law, and sovereign immunity - is not the only salient issue. The contractors are also awkwardly positioned in relation to the traditional understanding of sacrifice, which has structured Americans' imaginings about those who kill and are killed on behalf of the nation. In this understanding, there is a mutually constitutive relationship between citizenship ...


The Josiah Philips Attainder And The Institutional Structure Of The American Revolution, Matthew Steilen Nov 2017

The Josiah Philips Attainder And The Institutional Structure Of The American Revolution, Matthew Steilen

Matthew Steilen

This Article is a historical study of the Case of Josiah Philips. Philips led a gang of militant loyalists and escaped slaves in the Great Dismal Swamp of southeastern Virginia during the American Revolution. He was attainted of treason in 1778 by an act of the Virginia General Assembly, tried for robbery before a jury, convicted and executed. For many years, the Philips case was thought to be an early example of judicial review, based on a claim by St. George Tucker that judges had refused to enforce the act of attainder. Modern research has cast serious doubt on Tucker ...


Glorious Precedents: When Gay Marriage Was Radical, Michael Boucai Nov 2017

Glorious Precedents: When Gay Marriage Was Radical, Michael Boucai

Michael Boucai

In the years immediately following the Stonewall riots of June 1969, a period when "gay liberation" rather than "gay rights" described the ambitions of a movement, at least ten same-sex couples across the United States applied or attempted to apply for marriage licenses. All were refused except for two men in Texas, one of whom apparently looked convincing in a miniskirt, a wig, and false eyelashes. Lawsuits ensued in five states, and four made their way to and beyond trial.'


Did The Slaves Author The Thirteenth Amendment? An Essay In Redemptive History, Guyora Binder Nov 2017

Did The Slaves Author The Thirteenth Amendment? An Essay In Redemptive History, Guyora Binder

Guyora Binder

No mere appendix to the Constitution, the Thirteenth Amendment reframed the nation. But if the nation emerged from its crucible founded anew, who were its new founders? I will argue that it makes a moral difference to whom we credit our "new birth of freedom" and that credit is due the slaves.

Recognizing the slaves as framers might change the implications we find in the Thirteenth Amendment, making it a more potent weapon in the arsenal of civil rights advocates. But my present purpose is neither to explicate the values of the slaves, nor to apply those values to Thirteenth ...


The Death Of The Public Disclosure Tort: A Historical Perspective, Samantha Barbas Nov 2017

The Death Of The Public Disclosure Tort: A Historical Perspective, Samantha Barbas

Samantha Barbas

In 1890, Samuel Warren and Louis Brandeis, in their famous Harvard Law Review article The Right to Privacy, called for a new legal right that would allow the victims of truthful but embarrassing press publicity to sue in tort and recover damages for emotional harm. Currently, in most states, it constitutes a tort if the disclosure of "matter concerning the private life of another" would be highly offensive to a reasonable person and the matter is not "of legitimate concern to the public." If the disclosed subject matter is of legitimate public concern, the newsworthiness privilege immunizes the disclosure. However ...

The Illusion Of Parity: Determining Us Policy In The Post-Post Soviet Period, Kyle Sallee Nov 2017

The Illusion Of Parity: Determining Us Policy In The Post-Post Soviet Period, Kyle Sallee

Kyle Sallee

For 70 years, Soviet schoolchildren were taught “Moya rodina — Sovetskiy Soyuz (TheSoviet Union is my motherland),” but the motherland would be brought to her knees in 1991 as the trans-national Soviet identity disappeared with the collapse of the Soviet Empire, taking with it the ruins of the ideological, social, and political institutions that had supported civilization in the USSR and the Eastern Bloc for generations. What remained in the wake, a nuclear apparatus which was second only to that of the United States, would be the cause of an ongoing discourse between the Russian Federation and the United States. This ...


Early Baseball And Historic Liberty Park Stadium In Sedalia, Missouri, Mark E. Eberle Nov 2017

Early Baseball And Historic Liberty Park Stadium In Sedalia, Missouri, Mark E. Eberle

Mark E. Eberle

Small baseball parks with grandstands constructed prior to the Second World War continue to be lost around the country, and much of the sport’s history is lost with them. Missouri has a few such ballparks remaining within its borders, including those in Carthage, Hannibal, and St. Joseph. In addition, Sedalia has what is arguably one of the finest examples in the nation of a small ballpark with an historic wooden grandstand constructed in 1937–1938 that continues to serve its original purpose. This article is a brief introduction to baseball in Sedalia from the end of the Civil War ...


Review Of Discovering Indigenous Lands: The Doctrine Of Discovery In The English Colonies By Robert J. Miller, Jacinta Ruru, Larissa Behrendt, And Tracey Lindberg, Blake A. Watson Nov 2017

Review Of Discovering Indigenous Lands: The Doctrine Of Discovery In The English Colonies By Robert J. Miller, Jacinta Ruru, Larissa Behrendt, And Tracey Lindberg, Blake A. Watson

Blake A Watson

The Doctrine of Discovery provides that colonizing European nations automatically acquired certain property, governmental, and commercial rights over Indigenous inhabitants. In recent years, Indigenous peoples, legal scholars, religious institutions, and nongovernmental organizations have pressed for official repudiation of the Doctrine. In 2007, the United Nations voted (over the initial opposition of Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the United States) to adopt the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, which contains several provisions that acknowledge the rights of Indigenous peoples to their lands. In 2012, the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Peoples will devote its Eleventh Session to a study ...
