The Antitrust Jurisprudence Of Neil Gorsuch, John M. Newman Sep 2917

The Antitrust Jurisprudence Of Neil Gorsuch, John M. Newman

Florida State University Law Review

In 2017, the U.S. Senate confirmed Neil M. Gorsuch’s nomination to serve on the Supreme Court. Like Justice Stevens before him, Gorsuch’s primary area of expertise is anti-trust law. Like Stevens, Gorsuch both practiced and taught in the field before joining the bench. As a judge for the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals, Gorsuch penned multiple substantive antitrust opinions.

His unique expertise will likely situate Gorsuch as one of the Court’s leading voices on antitrust matters for decades to come. A close examination of his prior antitrust opinions thus offers vital insight into his approach to ...

The Impact Of Cultural Heritage On Japanese Towns And Villages, Yuichiro Tsuji Dr. Dec 2020

The Impact Of Cultural Heritage On Japanese Towns And Villages, Yuichiro Tsuji Dr.

Seattle Journal of Technology, Environmental & Innovation Law

In 1954, when historically significant clays and clay pots were found in the Iba district of Shizuoka prefecture, the city applied to the prefectural education committee for a historic site designation. The committee granted this designation to the city..

However, in 1973 the education committee lifted its permission to promote development around the location. Historians have sought revocation of this decision under the Administrative Case Litigation Act (ACLA), but the Supreme Court has denied standing. By denying standing, the Japanese Supreme Court allows the prefecture to destroy a historical site.

First, this paper seeks to discuss the doctrine of standing ...


Proposed Federal Osha Standards For Wildfire Smoke, Keenan Layton Dec 2020

Proposed Federal Osha Standards For Wildfire Smoke, Keenan Layton

Seattle Journal of Technology, Environmental & Innovation Law

With the rise of global temperatures, climatologists predict a corresponding increase in the frequency and severity of wildfires in the Pacific Northwest. Rising temperatures are expected to create drier conditions in forests, thereby creating environmental conditions more prone to forest fires. Wildfires have become a common enough occurrence in the Pacific Northwest that summers have become synonymous with smoky conditions, but the issue is not constrained to this region. Though the Pacific Northwest has recently acted as a harbinger of increasing wildfires, environmental scientists forecast an increase in fire risk throughout the Western United States. The predicted rise in forest ...


Responsible Energy Storage For A Renewable Electrical Grid, Matt Longacre Dec 2020

Responsible Energy Storage For A Renewable Electrical Grid, Matt Longacre

Seattle Journal of Technology, Environmental & Innovation Law

The United States economy, its national security, and even the health and safety of its citizens depend on reliably available electricity. Electricity is largely available through the grid – more than 9,200 generating units, capable of generating more than one terawatt of electricity, connected to more than 600,000 miles of wire. The grid extends to nearly everything: from charging cellphones to cellphone towers, from light emitting diodes to street lights, and from parking meters to electric cars; the grid has become ubiquitous.

The current grid infrastructure has been valued at two trillion dollars, but much of it is aging ...

The Ethics Of Governance, Justice Gordon Goodman Jul 2020

The Ethics Of Governance, Justice Gordon Goodman

Hastings Business Law Journal

This Article discusses the need for a board of last resort to set financial values during periods of extreme economic stress, i.e., the “liquidity black hole” events. The purpose of this proposed board, the “Independent Treasury Board,” would be to address valuation uncertainty during bust periods immediately following major financial crises.

If an Independent Treasury Board existed prior to 2008, it could have helped rein in some valuations that were among the causes for the Great Recession. More importantly, it could have quickened recovery from the Great Recession during the period immediately following the financial crisis by shortening the ...


Federal Right To Try Act: Heightened Informed Consent And Price Regulation Measures Will Improve Quality, Autonomy, And Exploitation Issues, Brenda Lin Jul 2020

Federal Right To Try Act: Heightened Informed Consent And Price Regulation Measures Will Improve Quality, Autonomy, And Exploitation Issues, Brenda Lin

Hastings Business Law Journal

This Note will examine the federal Right to Try Act, which was enacted on May 30, 2018. The federal statute followed the passage of Right to Try legislation in thirty-eight states, including California. Much controversy has surrounded “Right to Try” as an alternative to preexisting pathways to investigational drug treatments, such as traditional clinical trials and the FDA-regulated Expanded Access program, also commonly known as “Compassionate Use.”

This Note will examine those criticisms, evaluate the federal Right to Try Act, and propose amendments through the lenses of health care quality, patient autonomy, and long-term scientific innovation. Some controversy stems from ...


An Introduction To Joint Powers Authorities, Their Funding Mechanisms, And Why California Should Utilize One In Order To Create An Effective Forest Management System To Prevent Wildfires, Anna Bernstein Jul 2020

An Introduction To Joint Powers Authorities, Their Funding Mechanisms, And Why California Should Utilize One In Order To Create An Effective Forest Management System To Prevent Wildfires, Anna Bernstein

Hastings Business Law Journal

In the wake of ever-increasing incidences of wildfires across California, cost-effective, practical, and functional forest management has become a priority in order to keep California’s land and residents safe. From 2018 to 2020, six out of ten of California’s worst fires, coined ”megafires” by the United States Forest Service, have rampaged through the state. These megafires often behave in unstoppable ways. Most recently, in 2018, they killed more than a hundred people and destroyed seventeen thousand homes, all while burning hundreds of thousands of acres across California. Although the end of the recent drought has brought some relief ...

Women And (In)Justice: The Effects Of Employer Implicit Bias And Judicial Discretion On Title Vii Plaintiffs, Kya Rose Coletta Jul 2020

Women And (In)Justice: The Effects Of Employer Implicit Bias And Judicial Discretion On Title Vii Plaintiffs, Kya Rose Coletta

Hastings Business Law Journal

Current disparate treatment jurisprudence requires a plaintiff to prove that her employer intentionally discriminated based on sex, ignoring the social cognitive view that emphasizes the role of unconscious, unintentional mental processes. Women are unable to reach the top- tiers of the legal profession, like partnership, due to employers’ deeply engrained biases that emerge during assignment distribution and performance evaluations. This Note challenges that dominant approach, arguing that disparate treatment liability should turn on proof of actuation rather than evidence of intentionality. This Note presents a prescriptive discussion of how employers can implement compliance measures to prevent implicit bias in decision-making ...


The Legal Needs Of Nonprofits: An Empirical Study Of Tax-Exempt Organizations And Their Access To Legal Services, Raymond H. Brescia, Bahareh Ansari, Hannah Hage Jul 2020

The Legal Needs Of Nonprofits: An Empirical Study Of Tax-Exempt Organizations And Their Access To Legal Services, Raymond H. Brescia, Bahareh Ansari, Hannah Hage

Hastings Race and Poverty Law Journal

This empirical study, using quantitative and qualitative techniques, attempts to assess the state of the legal needs of nonprofit organizations, with an emphasis on the ways in which nonprofit organizations are or are not accessing assistance addressing their legal services needs. While most research into the extent to which Americans may or may not be accessing legal services focuses on the legal needs of individuals and families, this study focuses on the legal needs of nonprofit groups. Our goal with this research project is to contribute to the growing literature on the scope of unmet legal needs in the United ...

The Case For A Federal Statute Authorizing Compensation For Legally Imposed Segregation, Thomas B. Stoel Jr. Jul 2020

The Case For A Federal Statute Authorizing Compensation For Legally Imposed Segregation, Thomas B. Stoel Jr.

Hastings Race and Poverty Law Journal

This article, “The Case for a Federal Statute Authorizing Compensation for Legally Imposed Segregation,” proposes enactment of a law to provide reparations to the African Americans who suffered economic, physical, and psychological harm because they were victims of legally imposed racial segregation.

In 1973, Yale Law School Professor Boris Bittker published The Case for Black Reparations, a perceptive, legally rigorous analysis of the issue. Bittker concluded that a focus on reparations for slavery was likely to prove unproductive, and concentrated instead on the prospect for achieving broad- scale reparations for legally imposed segregation. Bittker reached no definitive conclusions; he ended ...


Mistreating Central American Refugees: Repeating History In Response To Humanitarian Challenges, Bill Ong Hing Jul 2020

Mistreating Central American Refugees: Repeating History In Response To Humanitarian Challenges, Bill Ong Hing

Hastings Race and Poverty Law Journal

In the 1980s, tens of thousands of Central Americans fled to the United States seeking refuge from civil unrest that ravaged their countries. In a largely geopolitical response, the Reagan administration labeled those fleeing Guatemala and El Salvador as “economic migrants,” detained them, and largely denied their asylum claims. The illegal discrimination against these refugees was exposed in a series of lawsuits and through congressional investigations. This led to the reconsideration of thousands of cases, the enlistment of a corps of asylum officers, and an agreement on the conditions under which migrant children could be detained.

Unfortunately, the lessons of ...


Teaching Professional Responsibility Through Theater, Michael Millemann, Elliott Rauh, Robert Bowie Jr. Jul 2020

Teaching Professional Responsibility Through Theater, Michael Millemann, Elliott Rauh, Robert Bowie Jr.

Hastings Race and Poverty Law Journal

This article is about ethics-focused, law school courses, co-taught with a theater director, in which students wrote, produced and performed in plays. The plays were about four men who, separately, were wrongfully convicted, spent decades in prison, and finally were released and exonerated, formally (two) or informally (two).

The common themes in these miscarriages of justice were that 1) unethical conduct of prosecutors (especially failures to disclose exculpatory evidence) and of defense counsel (especially incompetent representation) undermined the Rule of Law and produced wrongful convictions, and 2) conversely, that the ethical conduct of post-conviction lawyers and law students helped to ...


Muslims And Islam In U.S. Public Schools: Cases, Controversies And Curricula, Engy Abdelkader Jul 2020

Muslims And Islam In U.S. Public Schools: Cases, Controversies And Curricula, Engy Abdelkader

Hastings Race and Poverty Law Journal

In recent years, controversies surrounding curriculum and instruction about Muslims and Islam in U.S. public schools have become more common. In some instances, Muslim American parents and students have challenged representations that spread and reinforce denigrating stereotypes and misconceptions about their faith and co-religionists. In a seemingly growing trend, however, some non-Muslim students and parents are objecting to courses and programs due to perceived favorable or neutral treatment of the Islamic faith. Such cases, controversies and curricula illustrate how popular anxieties surrounding the integration of immigrant populations, particularly Muslims, are increasingly infecting classrooms, school districts and communities. They also ...


Law, Race, And The Epistemology Of Ignorance, George A. MartíNez Jul 2020

Law, Race, And The Epistemology Of Ignorance, George A. MartíNez

Hastings Race and Poverty Law Journal

Philosophers and other theorists have developed the field of epistemology which is the study of human knowledge. Critical race theorists have begun to explore how epistemological theory and insights may illuminate the study of race, including the analysis of race and the law. Such use of epistemology is appropriate because theoretical work on knowledge can be used to advance one of the key goals of critical race theory which is to understand how a regime of white supremacy and its subordination of people of color have been created and maintained in America. In this regard, philosophers and other theorists have ...


Korean Americans, The Protestant Christian Church, And The Future Of Asian American Lgbtq Rights, Josiah Pak Jul 2020

Korean Americans, The Protestant Christian Church, And The Future Of Asian American Lgbtq Rights, Josiah Pak

Hastings Race and Poverty Law Journal

This paper focuses on the Korean American Protestant Christian church and their past, present, and future support for LGBTQ rights. It explores both first-generation Korean American immigrants and their children, native-born second-generation Korean Americans. Specifically, it recounts the process of emigration for many first-generation Korean American immigrants and how it carried over the conservative, traditionalist, and religious frameworks that contribute to stonewalling future LGBTQ equality rights. Additionally, this paper addresses second- generation Korean Americans swinging between ideologies and social underpinnings of the older generation and a new “American” identity. By recounting Korean immigration to the United States, the role of ...


Secure The Smartphone, Secure The Future: Biometrics, Boyd, A Warrant Denial And The Fourth And Fifth Amendments, Aaron Chase Jul 2020

Secure The Smartphone, Secure The Future: Biometrics, Boyd, A Warrant Denial And The Fourth And Fifth Amendments, Aaron Chase

Hastings Race and Poverty Law Journal

The growing use of biometric technology—fingerprints, facial recognition and beyond—for data safekeeping—particularly for smart phones, personal computers, and identification—has raised a number of questions for Constitutional scholars. What Constitutional protections, if any, does biometric information have? Does biometric information require a warrant for law enforcement officers to compel its production? Would compelling production of a biometric password effectively force defendants to testify against themselves? Should the growing use of biometric information, by both private third parties and law enforcement, lead courts to reexamine prior precedents regarding privacy interests in personal technology and personal physical characteristics? This ...


Building Social And Human Capital In The Black Community By Increasing Strategic Relationships, Cooperative Economics, The Black Marriage Rate, And The Level Of Educational Attainment And Targeted Occupational Training, W. Sherman Rogers Jul 2020

Building Social And Human Capital In The Black Community By Increasing Strategic Relationships, Cooperative Economics, The Black Marriage Rate, And The Level Of Educational Attainment And Targeted Occupational Training, W. Sherman Rogers

Hastings Race and Poverty Law Journal

This is a multi-disciplinary article that focuses on the power of strategic relationships and cooperative economics in strengthening the human and social capital of the black1 community. It involves studies emanating primarily from the fields of law, economics, history, political science, and sociology. The recommendations set-forth in this article, however, are relevant to all people in America. The central thesis that underlies the entirety of this article can be found in the simple exhortation of the African Proverb—“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together .”

African Americans can significantly expand the ...

Legal Transplants, Law Books, And Anglo-American Corporate Fiduciary Duties, Victoria Barnes Jul 2020

Legal Transplants, Law Books, And Anglo-American Corporate Fiduciary Duties, Victoria Barnes

Hastings Business Law Journal

This Article explores legal transplants and divergences in Anglo- American corporate fiduciary law. The internal management rule in English law acts to restrict judicial interference in corporate governance disputes. It is conceptually similar to the business judgment rule but the two remain distinct. This Article explains why Anglo-American corporate law developed differently, despite its shared roots. It pinpoints the origins of the internal management rule to Lord Lindley’s work, which was written in the late nineteenth century. Lord Lindley was central to the development of corporate law in England and other common law jurisdictions within the British Empire, but ...

Going “All In” After Murphy V. Ncaa: An Approach For California To Legalize Sports Gambling, Kailey J. Walsh Jul 2020

Going “All In” After Murphy V. Ncaa: An Approach For California To Legalize Sports Gambling, Kailey J. Walsh

Hastings Communications and Entertainment Law Journal

When people think of sports gambling, they think of Las Vegas. Until recently, Nevada was the only state where one could legally place bets on sporting events. However, since the recent Supreme Court decision, Murphy v. NCAA, states are now in control when it comes to deciding whether or not to legalize sports gambling. As a result of the Murphy v. NCAA decision, some states have started to pass legislation to allow its citizens to legally place bets on certain sporting events. The driving force to legalize sports gambling stems from states’ desires to increase revenue through the taxation of ...


This Is No Laughing Matter: How Should Comedians Be Able To Protect Their Jokes?, Sarah Gamblin Jul 2020

This Is No Laughing Matter: How Should Comedians Be Able To Protect Their Jokes?, Sarah Gamblin

Hastings Communications and Entertainment Law Journal

This note will discuss the current state of protection for jokes and comedy. As it is now, the only protection comics have is self-help, meaning comedians take punishing thefts into their own hands. This note will dive into the reasons why the current legislature and courts refuse to recognize jokes as copyrightable. Specifically, why many believe that jokes to not meet the qualifications of being an expression, as well as the fear that protecting jokes will lead to chilled speech.

Additionally, this note shall discuss the ways jokes could be protected under the current legal scheme, including trademark and state ...
