The Next Los Angeles: The Struggle For A Livable City, Regina Freer, Robert Gottlieb, Mark Vallianatos, Peter Dreier Dec 2015

The Next Los Angeles: The Struggle For A Livable City, Regina Freer, Robert Gottlieb, Mark Vallianatos, Peter Dreier

Mark Vallianatos

While most historians, journalists, and filmmakers have focused on Los Angeles as a bastion of corporate greed, business boosterism, political corruption, cheap labor, exploited immigrants, and unregulated sprawl, The Next Los Angeles tells a different story: that of the reformers and radicals who have struggled for alternative visions of social and economic justice. In a new preface, the authors reflect on the gathering momentum of L.A.'s progressive movement, including the 2005 landslide victory of Antonio Villaraigosa as mayor.

Tracking Customer Search To Price Discriminate, Bart Wilson, Carey Deck Aug 2014

Tracking Customer Search To Price Discriminate, Bart Wilson, Carey Deck

Bart J Wilson

The electronic technologies of the Internet make it possible for sellers to track potential customers and discriminate between the informed and uninformed. In this article, we report an experiment that investigates the market impact of firms tracking customers and offering discriminatory prices based on search history. We find that consumers, on average, face the same prices when sellers have the ability to track customers and price discriminate as when sellers post a single price for all buyers. However, informed buyers receive lower prices when sellers can detect buyer search, whereas uninformed buyers receive lower prices when firms cannot track customers.

Not Dea'd Yet: Gonzalez V. Oregon, Charles Baron Aug 2013

Not Dea'd Yet: Gonzalez V. Oregon, Charles Baron

Charles H. Baron

On January 17, the Oregon Death with Dignity Act beat back yet another attempt on its life. In Gonzales v. Oregon, the U.S. Supreme Court (by a six-to-three vote) affirmed decisions of two lower federal courts and made permanent a 2001 injunction against federal prosecution of physicians who prescribe narcotics under the terms of the act. Media coverage of the decision both exaggerated and underplayed the decision’s significance.

El Pretendido Efecto Retroactivo De La Condición Cumplida, Patricio Lazo Dec 2006

El Pretendido Efecto Retroactivo De La Condición Cumplida, Patricio Lazo

Patricio Lazo

The topic of this article is the study of Roman sources of law, to the extent that they determine whether the condition which has been fulfilled could have had, or no, a retroactive effect, since some of those sources answer “yes, there was such a retroactive effect”, while others simply deny it. In examining those texts, the author assumes the methodological premise according to which Roman jurists were used to review the cases as decided by earlier jurists, in order, either to confirm the old jurisprudence, or to establish new and varying solutions to the problems. In that perspective, the ...

The Ecb And Target 2 - Securities: Questions On The Legal Basis, Marco Lamandini Dec 2006

The Ecb And Target 2 - Securities: Questions On The Legal Basis, Marco Lamandini

Marco Lamandini

The current European system of securities’ clearing and settlement is still rather fragmented along national boundaries, thereby making cross border operations costly and less efficient. As a response to this, the European Central Bank (“ECB”) is launching the project of a centralized public securities’ settlement platform, called “Target 2 Securities” (“T2S”), which would entitle each participant to settle, through a single Target2 account, any securities’ transaction performed through a Central Securities Depository that provides for settlement in central bank money in Euro. The legal basis of T2S is to be found in Article 105 (2) of the EC Treaty and ...

Thinking About Law And Policy: Lessons For Lawyers, Matthew S. R. Palmer Dec 2006

Thinking About Law And Policy: Lessons For Lawyers, Matthew S. R. Palmer

The Hon Justice Matthew Palmer

The paper outlines a simplified view of the paradigmatic approaches of the disciplines of law to legal issues and policy analysis to policy issues. It examines the strengths and weaknesses of the inherent biases likely to emanate from each approach when applied to matters of policy advice within Government. It suggests that, when approaching policy issues, those with legal training should be aware of the need to: identify the government’s objective; identifying all relevant policy options; and the need to undertake a broad analysis of all relevant considerations.


"Resolving The Foreshore And Seabed Dispute", Matthew S. R. Palmer Dec 2006

"Resolving The Foreshore And Seabed Dispute", Matthew S. R. Palmer

The Hon Justice Matthew Palmer

There has been serious political and legal conflict in New Zealand in recent years between indigenous Maori claims of rights to the foreshore and seabed and the understandings of non-Maori New Zealanders. This book chapter analyses the political leadership provided in this conflict from 1997 to 2005. It applies an approach to leadership developed by Ronald Heifetz which emphasizes the importance of identifying and addressing the real issues underlying a conflict. Applying Heifetz's diagnostic to the foreshore and seabed conflict suggests that the absence of constitutional mechanisms for dealing with the relationships between the Crown, Maori and other New ...


Creative Commons As Conversational Copyright, Michael W. Carroll Dec 2006

Creative Commons As Conversational Copyright, Michael W. Carroll

Michael W. Carroll

Copyright law's default settings inhibit sharing and adaptation of creative works even though new digital technologies greatly enhance individuals' capacity to engage in creative conversation. Creative Commons licenses enable a form of conversational copyright through which creators share their works, primarily over the Internet, while asserting some limitation on user's right with respect to works in the licensed commons. More specifically, this chapter explains the problems in copyright law to which Creative Commons licenses respond, the methods chosen, and why the machine-readable and public aspects of the licenses are specific examples of a more general phenomenon in digital ...

Refusing The Right To Refuse: Coerced Treatment Of Mentally Disabled Persons, Grant H. Morris Dec 2006

Refusing The Right To Refuse: Coerced Treatment Of Mentally Disabled Persons, Grant H. Morris

Grant H Morris

Under the common law doctrine of informed consent, if a person is competent to understand the risks, benefits, and alternatives to proposed treatment, that person is allowed to decide whether to accept or reject the proposed treatment. Informed consent is not required if the person is incompetent or if an emergency arises that necessitates treatment to save the person’s life.

Nevertheless, various devices are used to deny mentally disordered persons their right to refuse treatment even when they are competent decisionmakers and even when no emergency exists. For example, some courts substitute a “limited due process” model for a ...


The Confederate Sequestration Act, Daniel W. Hamilton Dec 2006

The Confederate Sequestration Act, Daniel W. Hamilton

Daniel W. Hamilton

In the South there was near ideological consensus on the legal basis for seizing Union property during the Civil War. The United States was an enemy belligerent whose property was, at international law, subject to permanent confiscation during war. Through the resort to international law, the Confederacy was able not only to assert its sovereignty, but also to craft a far more rigorous and effective confiscation regime much quicker than their Northern counterparts. U.S. citizens were, at Confederate law, foreigners, and were not due the protections of domestic Confederate constitutional law. U.S. citizens were not traitors or rebels ...
