Law And Public Policy Support Lockyer's Suit Against Auto Manufacturers For Co2 Emissions, Clifford Rechtschaffen, Sean B. Hecht Dec 2006

Law And Public Policy Support Lockyer's Suit Against Auto Manufacturers For Co2 Emissions, Clifford Rechtschaffen, Sean B. Hecht

Publications

Controversy has followed Attorney General Bill Lockyer’s decision earlier this fall to sue the six largest automakers, alleging that car emissions constitute a public nuisance because they contribute to global warming. Some even have dismissed the lawsuit as election year grandstanding. To the contrary, the Attorney General should be applauded for creatively using a venerable legal tool to protect California’s environment and to plug a gaping hole left by federal failures in this area.

United States Migration Law: Essentials For Comparison, Christian N. Okeke, James A.R. Nafziger Oct 2006

United States Migration Law: Essentials For Comparison, Christian N. Okeke, James A.R. Nafziger

Publications

The immigration and nationality law of the United States is complex. It is more the product of historical experience than logical design. In one memorable, often-quoted simile, the law bears "a striking resemblance" to "King Minos's labyrinth in ancient Crete."
