Causation, Counterfactuals And Probabilities In Philosophy And Legal Thinking, Florence G'Sell May 2016

Causation, Counterfactuals And Probabilities In Philosophy And Legal Thinking, Florence G'Sell

Chicago-Kent Law Review

Since the function of causation is to recount and explain observed phenomena in order to make a judgment on civil liability, promoting a purely legal conception of causation appears to be problematic. The purpose of this contribution is to show that the various theories of causation found in legal thinking are, in many respects, the extension of philosophical developments. Therefore, two points will be made. The first part of this paper will present the three main theories that are discussed by contemporary philosophers. The second part will show how philosophical accounts are present in legal thinking. This part will deal ...


Causation In Hepatitis B. Vaccination Litigation In France: Breaking Through Scientific Uncertainty?, Jean-Sebastien Borghetti May 2016

Causation In Hepatitis B. Vaccination Litigation In France: Breaking Through Scientific Uncertainty?, Jean-Sebastien Borghetti

Chicago-Kent Law Review

Vaccination against hepatitis B has been available since 1982 and is strongly recommended by most health professionals.

Many cases have nevertheless been brought before French courts, in which plaintiffs argue that they have developed a demyelinating disease due to the hepatitis B vaccination ...


Video-Streaming Records And The Video Privacy Protection Act: Broadening The Scope Of Personally Identifiable Information To Include Unique Device Identifiers Disclosed With Video Titles, Gregory M. Huffman May 2016

Video-Streaming Records And The Video Privacy Protection Act: Broadening The Scope Of Personally Identifiable Information To Include Unique Device Identifiers Disclosed With Video Titles, Gregory M. Huffman

Chicago-Kent Law Review

The Video Privacy Protection Act (“VPPA”) prohibits video tape service providers from disclosing their consumers’ video rental or sale records. Although the VPPA was originally enacted to regulate disclosures by brick-and-mortar video rental stores, litigators have more recently used the VPPA as a vehicle to regulate disclosures by online video content providers.

The application of the VPPA to video streaming via web browsers and mobile devices raises new questions of statutory interpretation. One key question is whether the scope of the VPPA is broad enough to cover a disclosure of a unique device identifier of a user’s device, rather ...

Inside Equity-Based Crowdfunding: Online Financing Alternatives For Small Businesses, Michael Vignone

Chicago-Kent Law Review

Equity-based crowdfunding is an innovative approach to promote growth in small businesses and educate the financially less sophisticated about investing.
