James Oakes's Treatment Of The First Confiscation Act In Freedom National: The Destruction Of Slavery In The United States, 1861-1865, Angela Porter Oct 2023

James Oakes's Treatment Of The First Confiscation Act In Freedom National: The Destruction Of Slavery In The United States, 1861-1865, Angela Porter

Articles in Law Reviews & Other Academic Journals

In his work, Freedom National: The Destruction of Slavery in the United States, 1861-1865, James Oakes provides an overview of several Civil War era legal instruments regarding enslavement in the United States. One of the statutes he examines is An Act to Confiscate Property Used for Insurrectionary Purposes, passed by the Thirty Seventh Congress in August, 1861. This law, popularly known as the First Confiscation Act (FCA), is one of the several "Confiscation Acts" that contributed to the weakening of legal enslavement during the War. Fortunately, scholars have contextualized and deemphasized President Lincoln's role as the "Great Emancipator" by examining …


Privacy And Property: Constitutional Concerns Of Dna Dragnet Testing, E. Wyatt Jones Apr 2023

Privacy And Property: Constitutional Concerns Of Dna Dragnet Testing, E. Wyatt Jones

Honors Projects

DNA dragnets have attracted both public and scholarly criticisms that have yet to be resolved by the Courts. This review will introduce a modern understanding of DNA analysis, a complete introduction to past and present Fourth and Fourteenth Amendment jurisprudence, and existing suggestions concerning similar issues in legal scholarship. Considering these contexts, this review concludes that a focus on privacy and property at once, with a particular sensitivity to the inseverable relationship between the two interests, is Constitutionally consistent with precedent and the most workable means of answering the question at hand.

Most of us think we are familiar with graffiti – lettering on trains or graphic images on walls that follow us as we walk by. But Enrico Bonadio’s new book on graffiti and street art opens a door to more complex and nuanced worlds of artists and their communities. The focus is on everyday creators of graffiti and street art. Built from nearly 100 interviews and hundreds of hours of observation, the book is filled with the voices of artists and vivid details of their plein air studios and interactions. Also present in the book is the author, who weaves …

Scholarly Articles

The purpose of this bibliography is to record in one place the substantial body of scholarship produced by the current faculty at the Catholic University, Columbus School of Law. From its humble beginnings under the tutelage of founding Dean William Callyhan Robinson, through its adolescent period when, like so many other American law schools, it was trying to define its pedagogical niche, to its eventual merger with the Columbus University Law School in 1954, the law school at Catholic University has always retained a scholarly and remarkably productive faculty. The sheer quantity of writing, the breadth of research and the …

Justices Citing Justices, Jay D. Wexler Jan 2023

Justices Citing Justices, Jay D. Wexler

Faculty Scholarship

Scholars have long paid attention to how often and for what reasons Supreme Court justices cite law review articles and academic books in their opinions. More recently, a new area of scholarship has begun to look at how Justices create their own lines of “personal precedent” through not only their prior opinions but also their academic writings. At the intersection of these two areas of inquiry lies questions of how often and for what reasons Supreme Court justices cite the journal articles and books of the various justices sitting on the Court, including their own. With the exception of one …

Nevada Supreme Court Summaries

Judges are required to disqualify themselves when their impartiality might be questioned, such as if they have previously presided as judge over the matter in another court. A judge is said to preside over a matter when they have exercised some control or authority over the matter, not when they have had purely administrative contact.

Nevada Supreme Court Summaries

Judge Stiglich issued the opinion. The issue was of first impression and asked if under NRCP 60(b) a District court could set aside a judgment, confirming a court-annexed arbitration award.2 This would go against Nevada Arbitration Rule (NAR) 19(C) limiting post-judgment relief only to that which corrects clerical mistakes and errors.3 The court held NAR 19(C) prevents a district court from granting post -judgment relief under NRCP 60(b) in the form of setting aside a judgment confirming an arbitration award. Thus, the court remanded and reversed the district court’s judgment and gave instructions to reinstate the arbitration award.

Nevada Supreme Court Summaries

The Nevada Supreme Court considered this writ of mandamus as it held substantial precedential value and was a matter of first impression. Although the controversy was moot, they decided to hear the issue, as the duration of the challenges action is relatively short and a similar issue is likely to arise in the future. Further, the Court found the matter to be important, because the issue related to the protection of Nevada children. The Court held that NRS 432B.393(3)(c) is constitutional, as it does not infringe on the due process rights of parents concerning the altering or termination of custody …

Nevada Supreme Court Summaries

A law firm is not automatically disqualified based on a paralegal’s imputed conflict of interest unless there is actual disclosure of confidences or ineffective screening measures. Additionally, district courts have broad discretion in determining whether a law firm must be disqualified, and whether to hold an evidentiary hearing to determine adequacy of screening measures.

Nevada Supreme Court Summaries

Legal malpractice claims which arise from advice given during the drafting of an estate plan are transactional legal malpractice claims. NRS 11.207(1) provides a two-year statute of limitations for both transactional and litigation-based legal malpractice claims. However, the Court has applied a litigation-malpractice tolling rule which delays the statute of limitations until the litigation in which the malpractice occurred ends and damages are certain. This tolling rule only applies to litigation-based claims. Therefore, because estate planning is transactional the tolling rule does not apply. Instead, when a litigant files or must defend against a lawsuit occasioned by transactional malpractice, they …

Nevada Supreme Court Summaries

To determine if a private right of action exists for a violation of a self-executing provision of the Nevada Constitution, the court applies a three-step test. First, the court asks whether the language and history of the constitutional provision established an indication of intent to provide or withhold the requested remedy. If answered negatively, the court then considers whether the several factors set forth in § 874A of the Restatement (Second) of Torts favors the requested remedy. Third, the Court considers if any special factors counsel hesitation in the recognition of monetary damages. In this case the Nevada Supreme Court …

Nevada Supreme Court Summaries

A District Court Judge must adequately explain a reduction of an appropriately granted award of attorney’s fees under the Nevada Public Records Act (NPRA).2 The explanation must consider the four Brunzell factors: (1) quality of the advocate; (2) the character of the work needed to be done; (3) the work performed; and (4) the result.3 Generally, the greater the amount of the reduction, the more thorough an explanation must be.

Nevada Supreme Court Summaries

Where an irrevocable trust uses terms to distinguish between different classes of beneficiary, the court must look at the usage of those terms within the instrument to determine whether a beneficiary is entitled to an accounting of the trust. Additionally, NRS 165.180 only stands for the proposition that NRS Chapter 165 does not contain an exhaustive list of the district court’s power over trusts. NRS 165.180 does not stand as an independent grant of powers not otherwise listed in the chapter.

Nevada Supreme Court Summaries

In an opinion authored by Justice Pickering, following both the NRS and California law, the Court affirmed the district court’s holding, finding that a written instrument can transfer assets within a trust with real property, without a separate deed and, a description of real property held in trust satisfies the Statute of Frauds so long as the description provides sufficient means to identify the property using extrinsic evidence.


“Do Not Ever Refer To My Lord Jesus Christ With Pronouns”: Considering Controversies Over Religiously Motivated Discrimination On The Basis Of Gender Identity, Linda C. Mcclain Jan 2023

“Do Not Ever Refer To My Lord Jesus Christ With Pronouns”: Considering Controversies Over Religiously Motivated Discrimination On The Basis Of Gender Identity, Linda C. Mcclain

Faculty Scholarship

In the by-now familiar framing “religious freedom versus LGBT+ rights,” perhaps the most visible conflicts today in the United States, and elsewhere, concern the “T”—transgender or gender identity rights. This issue of the Journal of Law and Religion includes a conversation in print between Patrick Parkinson, Laura Portuondo and Claudia Haupt, and Shannon Gilreath on this timely topic, and their contrasting perspectives mirror dimensions of the larger public controversies. Although tweets like those quoted above (by unsuccessful Republican congressional candidate Lavern Spicer) asserting that neither the Bible nor Jesus had pronouns sparked both factual corrections and comical retorts, 3 the …

The event was facilitated by U.S. Representatives Stephanie Bice (R-OK), Mikie Sherrill (D-NJ), Julia Letlow (R-LA), and Chrissy Houlahan (D-PA) following the January 23 introduction of their Protecting Families From Fertility Fraud Act, which would—for the first time—make it a federal crime to knowingly misrepresent the source of DNA used in any procedure that involves assisted reproduction.

It Ain't Real Funky Unless It's Got That Pop: Artistic Fair Use After Goldsmith, Benjamin A. Spencer Jan 2023

It Ain't Real Funky Unless It's Got That Pop: Artistic Fair Use After Goldsmith, Benjamin A. Spencer

Duke Journal of Constitutional Law & Public Policy Sidebar

The Pop Art style pioneered by artists such as Paolozzi, Lichtenstein, and Rauschenberg challenged notions of what art could be by recasting common objects and images into new contexts, transforming them into pieces that served as both cultural commentary and novel expression. Though examination of an artwork's meaning or message may seem more natural for a critic or curator, the Supreme Court will have a chance to weigh in with Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts v. Goldsmith. Here, the court will decide whether a Warhol painting based on a photograph of Prince is protected by fair use. …

Nevada Supreme Court Summaries

In this decision authored by Justice Stiglich, the Court held that a property settlement incident to a divorce decree is enforceable when it requires a divorcing veteran spouse to make payments from military disability pay. Although federal law prohibits state courts from awarding veteran disability pay in a divorce, the Court found an indemnification provision in a property settlement resulting in the payment of disability pay was enforceable because the parties had previously negotiated and agreed to the terms. While the Court would not have been able to award veteran disability pay as part of a property settlement, the divorcing …

Nevada Supreme Court Summaries

The Nevada Legislature has clearly distinguished between recreational and medical cannabis use in the employment context. Under NRS 678C.850(3), employees have a private right of action when an employer does not provide reasonable accommodations for the use of medical cannabis off-site and outside of working hours. While employees have a private right of action under NRS 678C.850, they lack a cause of action in such circumstances for tortious discharge or negligent hiring, training, or supervision. Furthermore, pursuant to Ceballos v. NP Palace, LLC, employees who use medical cannabis may not bring a claim against their employer under NRS 613.333.

NRS 31.070 outlines a process for determining title to property that is being questioned. The process allows an entity served with a writ of attachment the opportunity to request a hearing to determine the correct title for the property. This process grants an entity, even a third-party entity, standing to challenge a district court’s order by following the process outlined in NRS 31.070.
