Societal Reaction To Deviants: The Case Of Criminal Defendants, Ilene Nagel Bernstein, William R. Kelly, Patricia A. Doyle Jan 1977

Societal Reaction To Deviants: The Case Of Criminal Defendants, Ilene Nagel Bernstein, William R. Kelly, Patricia A. Doyle

Articles by Maurer Faculty

Recent reformulations of the societal reaction theory argue that the thesis is a perspective rather than a theory, and that the perspective is meant to provide a set of sensitizing concepts to those researching deviance. This research examines the degree of congruence between hypotheses deduced from those assertions and a set of real world occurrences. Data for a sample of male defendants charged with felony offenses are examined to estimate the effects of (1) deviants' social attributes, (2) the specific societal reactors, (3) the values placed on certain offenses and (4) the organizational imperatives of the deviance-controlling organization, controlling for ...

On Domesticating Giants: Further Reflections On The Legal Approach To Transnational Enterprise, A. A. Fatouros Jan 1977

On Domesticating Giants: Further Reflections On The Legal Approach To Transnational Enterprise, A. A. Fatouros

Articles by Maurer Faculty

This article continues a line of inquiry begun long ago at the University of Western Ontario, at a time when transnational enterprise was dealt with under the heading of "direct private foreign investment." It picks up and develops certain points made in some relatively recent articles of mine, such as, The Computer and the Mudhut: Notes on Multinational Enterprise in Developing Countries (1971), 10 Columbia J. Transn'l. L. 325; Multinational Enterprise and Extraterritoriality (1972), 1 J. Contemporary Business (No. 4); and especially, Problemes et ethodes d'une reglementation des enterprises multinationales (1974), 101 J. Droit Int'l (Clunet) 495.


An Environmental Overview Of Geothermal Resources Development, A. Dan Tarlock, Richard L. Waller Jan 1977

An Environmental Overview Of Geothermal Resources Development, A. Dan Tarlock, Richard L. Waller

Articles by Maurer Faculty

While the adverse environmental effects of geothermal resources development appear to be less severe than those created by other energy sources, geothermal development nonetheless poses serious environmental problems. Professor Tarlock and Mr. Waller identify and discuss four categories of potential adverse environmental impacts of geothermal development: land use disturbance, water pollution, air pollution and noise.

The Minnesota Recreational Use Statute: A Preliminary Analysis, Donald H. Gjerdingen Jan 1977

The Minnesota Recreational Use Statute: A Preliminary Analysis, Donald H. Gjerdingen

Articles by Maurer Faculty

In the past twenty-four years, Minnesota and forty-two other states in an effort to ease the growing burden on public parks and campgrounds have enacted recreational use statutes to encourage private landowners to open their land to the public for recreational use. As incentive, the statutes offer the landowners a limited form of tort immunity if they gratuitously allow entry for recreational use. Despite their simplicity, the possible ramifications of the statutes in the area of premises liability law are far-reaching. This Note analyzes the Minnesota recreational use statute and suggests a theoretical framework for its interpretation.

Deduction Of Traveling Expenses By The Two-Worker Family -- An Inquiry Into The Role Of The Courts In Interpreting The Federal Tax Law, William D. Popkin Jan 1977

Deduction Of Traveling Expenses By The Two-Worker Family -- An Inquiry Into The Role Of The Courts In Interpreting The Federal Tax Law, William D. Popkin

Articles by Maurer Faculty

Professor Popkin urges that courts interpret section 162 of the Internal Revenue Code, which permits a deduction for business expenses, also to permit a two-worker family to deduct that part of their transportation costs and living expenses attributable to a second job. After tracing the current state of the law, he contends that the implicit assumption of the Code-that married taxpayers live together and constitute a single consumption unit-should allow deduction of some commuting costs and living expenses, much as a single taxpayer is allowed a deduction for transportation to and living expenses at a secondary place of business. Last ...

Statutes As Judgments: The Natural Law Theory Of Parliamentary Activity In Medieval England, Morris S. Arnold Jan 1977

Statutes As Judgments: The Natural Law Theory Of Parliamentary Activity In Medieval England, Morris S. Arnold

Articles by Maurer Faculty

The proposition that late medieval English lawgivers believed themselves to be exercising a declarative function has been so frequently put forward and so widely accepted that it is in danger of being canonized by sheer dint of repetition; and thus one who would deny the essential validity of that notion bears the virtually insuperable burden of proof commonly accorded an accused heretic. Nevertheless, it will be argued here that natural law notions are attributed to the medieval English legislator with only the slightest support from the sources, and after only the most rudimentary and uncritical analyses of the implications of ...

Charge Reduction: An Intermediary Stage In The Process Of Labelling Criminal Defendants, Ilene Nagel Bernstein, Edward Kick, Jan T. Leung, Barbara Schulz

Articles by Maurer Faculty

The interactionist perspective emphasizes the imperfect correspondence between alleged deviance and societal reactions. Moreover, it is asserted that values of reactors, statuses of the alleged deviant, and bureaucratic constraints of deviance processing organizations help explain some of that imperfection. Focusing on one intermediary deviance processing stage, i.e., plea bargaining, we explore the degree to which our data are consonant with interactionist assumptions. For a sample of 1,435 male and female criminal defendants, we find the favorability of the charge reduction outcome is partly explained by values of reactors, statuses of the defendant, and bureaucratic constraints of the court ...
