From Selma To Ferguson: The Voting Rights Act As A Blueprint For Police Reform (With Jason Mazzone), Stephen Rushin Dec 2016

From Selma To Ferguson: The Voting Rights Act As A Blueprint For Police Reform (With Jason Mazzone), Stephen Rushin

Stephen Rushin

The Voting Rights Act of 1965 revolutionized access to the voting booth. Rather than responding to claims of voter suppression through litigation against individual states or counties, the Voting Rights Act introduced a coverage formula that preemptively regulated a large number of localities across the country. In doing so, the Voting Rights Act replaced reactive, piecemeal litigation with a proactive structure of continual federal oversight. As the most successful civil rights law in the nation’s history, the Voting Rights Act provides a blueprint for responding to one of the most pressing civil rights problems the country faces today: police ...

Ch. 14 Climate Change Innovation, Products And Services Under The Gatt/Wto System, Padideh Ala'i

Padideh Ala'i

The chapter aims to identify some of the major sources of tension between climate change-related measures proposed or implemented on the national level and the trading rules as they have been applied by the WTO dispute settlement bodies over the past nearly 20 years. The chapter first describes three categories of national approaches to climate change, and highlights the potential competitiveness concerns raised by each. It then discusses selected WTO provisions that are most likely to be used to evaluate WTO treaty-compliance of the three categories of national measures. These include an analysis of Articles of the General Agreement on ...

Pregnancy Denied, Pregnancy Rejected In Stephanie Daley, Susan Ayres, Prema Manjunath May 2016

Pregnancy Denied, Pregnancy Rejected In Stephanie Daley, Susan Ayres, Prema Manjunath

Susan Ayres

This article offers a reading of Hilary Brougher’s film Stephanie Daley (2006), in which a teen is accused of murdering her newborn (neonaticide). Brougher depicts a “phenomenology of unwanted pregnancy” and an example of therapeutic jurisprudence. Part One examines Brougher’s treatment of the “shadow side of pregnancy,” and highlights barriers to the empathetic treatment of neonaticide. Part Two emphasizes the process of therapeutic jurisprudence as experienced by the two main characters. Brougher’s film provides a social narrative and phenomenology that may influence laws and legal responses and enlarge social understanding of unwanted pregnancy.

Fumigating The Criminal Bug: New Research On The Insulation Of Volkswagen’S Middle Management, J.S. Nelson May 2016

Fumigating The Criminal Bug: New Research On The Insulation Of Volkswagen’S Middle Management, J.S. Nelson

J.S. Nelson

New headlines each day reveal wide-spread misconduct and large-scale cheating at top international companies: Volkswagen’s emissions-defeat devices installed on over eleven million cars trace back to a manager’s PowerPoint from as early as 2006. Mitsubishi admits that it has been cheating on emissions standards for the eK and Dayz model cars for the past 25 years—even after a similar scandal almost wiped out the company 15 years ago. Takata’s US $70 million fine for covering up its exploding air bags in Honda, Ford, and other car brands could soon jump to US $200 million if a ...

Constitutional Courts As Mediators. Armed Conflict, Civil-Military Relations, And The Rule Of Law In Latin America, Julio Rios-Figueroa Apr 2016

Constitutional Courts As Mediators. Armed Conflict, Civil-Military Relations, And The Rule Of Law In Latin America, Julio Rios-Figueroa

Julio Ríos-Figueroa

This book offers a new theoretical framework for understanding the mediator role played by constitutional courts in democratic conflict solving. The book proposes an informational theory of constitutional review in which constitutional courts obtain, process, and transmit information to parties in a way that reduces the uncertainty causing their conflict. The substantive focus of the book is the role of constitutional courts in democracies where the armed forces are fighting internal armed conflicts of different types: Colombia, Peru, and Mexico in Latin America and also Israel, Turkey, and Pakistan. Through detailed analyses of the political context, civil-military relations, and the ...

Writing Better Jury Instructions: Antitrust As An Example, Joshua P. Davis, Shannon Wheatman, Cristen Stephansky Mar 2016

Writing Better Jury Instructions: Antitrust As An Example, Joshua P. Davis, Shannon Wheatman, Cristen Stephansky

Joshua P. Davis

Understanding the law is difficult. Getting juries to understand the law is more difficult. Yet we provide evidence that it can be done, even in complex areas such as antitrust. This Article tests whether jury instructions can be written in a way that maintains fidelity to the law—indeed, improves on fidelity to the law compared to standard jury instructions—while also permitting jurors to understand the relevant legal standards. But it goes further than that. It proposes making empirical testing an integral part of drafting model jury instructions. It also shows that such empirical testing is feasible by harnessing ...


Undimmed: Nurturing Indian Solar-Power Technology Within The Strictures Of The Wto, Hippu Salk Kristle Nathan, Manmeet Singh Mar 2016

Undimmed: Nurturing Indian Solar-Power Technology Within The Strictures Of The Wto, Hippu Salk Kristle Nathan, Manmeet Singh

Hippu Salk Kristle Nathan

This February, a World Trade Organisation dispute panel adjudged the National Solar Mission’s "domestic content requirement," or DCR measures—agreements to purchase solar electricity from power companies on the condition that certain shares of the cells and panels they use be of Indian provenance—to be illegal. In its ruling, the panel cited provisions in the General Agreement on Trade and Tariffs, or GATT, to which India is signatory, prohibiting member countries from giving preference to domestic products over imported ones.

This leaves the Indian government in a difficult position. Currently, indigenous solar modules are roughly a third more ...


The Devil Is In The Details: Articulating Practical Principles For Implementing The Duties In Pennsylvania's Environmental Rights Amendment, Kenneth Kristl Mar 2016

The Devil Is In The Details: Articulating Practical Principles For Implementing The Duties In Pennsylvania's Environmental Rights Amendment, Kenneth Kristl

Kenneth T Kristl

The 1971 Environmental Rights Amendment to the Pennsylvania Constitution at Article I, Section 27 created individual rights to clean air, pure water, and other environmental features as well as a public trust in the Commonwealth’s public natural resources. Judicial interpretation significantly narrowed Section 27’s reach until the Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s Robinson Township decision in 2013 reinvigorated the Amendment. In the aftermath of Robinson Township, government officials and courts will need guidelines for how to comply with Section 27 in making and reviewing government actions and decisions. This article develops a set of concrete, practical principles for applying ...

Datenschutz-Folgeabschätzung: Ein Werkzeug Für Einen Besseren Datenschutz, Michael Friedewald, Hannah Obersteller, Maxi Nebel, Felix Bieker, Martin Rost

Michael Friedewald

Um künftig die Gefahren durch Datenverarbeitungspraktiken besser beurteilen zu können, müssen viele Technikanbieter und Systembetreiber ab 2018 bei ihren Angeboten und Diensten Datenschutz-Folgenabschätzungen vornehmen. Bisher ist jedoch offen, wie und nach welchen Kriterien dies genau erfolgen soll. Das White Paper „Datenschutz-Folgenabschätzung – Ein neues Werkzeug der Aufsichtsbehörden und der für die Verarbeitung Verantwortlichen“ des Forum Privatheit setzt hier an und erarbeitet erste Grundzüge zur Ausgestaltung künftiger Datenschutz-Folgenabschätzungen und deren praktischer Durchführung. Die Auseinandersetzung hiermit ist auch deshalb wichtig, da die EU-Mitgliedsstaaten nach der Verabschiedung der Datenschutz-Grundverordnung im Jahr 2016 unmittelbar damit beginnen werden, diese bis 2018 in die Praxis umzusetzen.
