Boilerplate’S False Dichotomy, James Gibson Jan 2018

Boilerplate’S False Dichotomy, James Gibson

Law Faculty Publications

The argument against enforcing boilerplate contracts (contracts that no one reads) seems clear. Indeed, if this were a court case we would say that the jury is in; the evidence against boilerplate is overwhelming. Yet the judge has yet to render judgment. Courts continue to enforce boilerplate terms, and even those scholars who have exposed boilerplate as an emperor with no clothes are reluctant to gaze upon its nakedness and condemn its use.

This reluctance originates in an assumption that pervades the boilerplate debate—namely, that courts and commentators alike view boilerplate as necessary to the modern transaction. When asked ...

Amending The Virginia Residential Landlord-Tenant Act Regarding Liability For Bedbug Extermination, Lisa Allen Oct 2017

Amending The Virginia Residential Landlord-Tenant Act Regarding Liability For Bedbug Extermination, Lisa Allen

Richmond Public Interest Law Review

An addition to the Virginia Code has caused complications for residential tenants who experience bedbugs in their rental units. A proposed amendment to this law will hold landlords liable for dealing with bedbugs infestations because landlords are in a position that makes them most able to afford treatment. This amendment would also address bedbugs effectively according to scientific research and align with federal housing guidelines.


Sometimes It Takes A Tragedy: How The Death Of A Mentally Ill Inmate May Become A Catalyst For A New Horizon Of Mental Health Reform In Virginia, Snapper Tams Oct 2017

Sometimes It Takes A Tragedy: How The Death Of A Mentally Ill Inmate May Become A Catalyst For A New Horizon Of Mental Health Reform In Virginia, Snapper Tams

Richmond Public Interest Law Review

This comment recounts a recent tragedy that occurred in the Common- wealth of Virginia that resulted from neglect of a mentally ill inmate in the state’s correctional system. Mentally ill inmates have been long ignored by the Commonwealth as a result of lack of funds and resources available to correctional facilities. The General Assembly has considered legislation that would prevent stories like the one in this comment, but legislators delayed action and prioritized other matters. This comment calls upon the General Assembly to take these tragedies seriously and put mentally ill in- mates on the agenda in 2018.


Capital Sentencing For Children In Virginia In The Wake Of Miller V. Alabama And Montgomery V. Louisiana, Julie E. Mcconnell Oct 2017

Capital Sentencing For Children In Virginia In The Wake Of Miller V. Alabama And Montgomery V. Louisiana, Julie E. Mcconnell

Richmond Public Interest Law Review

Recent United States Supreme Court decisions have declared it unconstitutional to sentence a juvenile to mandatory life in prison without an opportunity for parole. Virginia, a state that abolished parole in 1995, has yet to recognize the federally mandated prohibition against disproportionate punishment imposed on juveniles, particularly in cases where the mandatory minimum sentence is life without parole. This article proposes the General Assembly should amend current laws that reflect the unconstitutionality of these statutes as applied to juveniles.


A Reform Long Overdue: Raising Virginia's Felony Grand Larceny Threshold, Bill Rice Oct 2017

A Reform Long Overdue: Raising Virginia's Felony Grand Larceny Threshold, Bill Rice

Richmond Public Interest Law Review

Virginia has one of the lowest felony grand larceny thresholds in the nation. This low threshold has not been adjusted with inflation since 1980 and, thus, results in a high number of felony convictions in the state today. This article examines the current debate surrounding Virginia’s felony grand larceny threshold and presents a remedy that will reasonably man- age the state’ s interests in preventing future larcenies while not unduly punishing citizens for committing minor crimes.


Slaying The Gerrymander: How Reform Will Happen In The Commonwealth, Brian Cannon, Ben Williams Oct 2017

Slaying The Gerrymander: How Reform Will Happen In The Commonwealth, Brian Cannon, Ben Williams

Richmond Public Interest Law Review

Gerrymandering is a political tool that snuck its way into Virginia politics long ago. It has become problematic over time, threatening true democracy in the Commonwealth. This article outlines what those problems are, how other states reacted to similar issues, and what Virginia politicians have done to respond to gerrymandering. It offers proposed solutions to the issues, and calls upon the Virginia General Assembly and elected governor to take action.
