Promoting Self-Sufficiency? How Hra's Exclusion Of Incarceration From The Definition Of "Temporary Absence" Contradicts Statutory Mandates And Hurts New York Families, Matthew P. Main Dec 2010

Promoting Self-Sufficiency? How Hra's Exclusion Of Incarceration From The Definition Of "Temporary Absence" Contradicts Statutory Mandates And Hurts New York Families, Matthew P. Main

City University of New York Law Review

The New York City Human Resources Administration has implemented a policy that has a punitive and disproportionate impact on poor families of color. The policy departs from the legislative mandate to support New York’s neediest and most at risk by arbitrarily excluding incarceration from the definition of “temporary absence,” as it applies to the Cash Assistance program. Aside from the discriminatory impact on poor children and families, the policy decision comes at a higher cost to New York taxpayers in the midst of a financial crisis. This Comment evaluates the legal flaws in the policy, the persons it targets ...

Advocacy For Tenant And Community Empowerment: Reflections On My First Year In Practice, Shekar Krishnan Dec 2010

Advocacy For Tenant And Community Empowerment: Reflections On My First Year In Practice, Shekar Krishnan

City University of New York Law Review

In May 2009, the landlord of a rent-stabilized building in Williamsburg, Brooklyn openly declared his intention to force out the current tenants if they did not leave on their own. Located on North 8th Street right off trendy Bedford Avenue, the property was prime real estate in Williamsburg. The only obstacles that stood between the landlord and the potential for him to reap large profits were the rent-stabilized status of the building and all the tenants who paid the regulated rent, a fraction of the market rate. Once he forced those tenants to leave, he could “gut rehab” the apartments ...

Gender Violence In India Prajnya Report 2010, Professor Vibhuti Patel Dec 2010

Gender Violence In India Prajnya Report 2010, Professor Vibhuti Patel

Professor Vibhuti Patel

Gender violence in personal lives as well as the systems and structures perpetuating it need serious examination. Indian women experience all kinds of gendered violence at different stages of their lives, from womb to tomb, as a result of modernisation and commercialisation of subsistence economies, family ties becoming less supportive, increasing migration, demanding work, inhuman labour processes in informal economies, sectarian vested interests manifesting through identity politics, trafficking of women and girls as cheap labour, forced marriage and various forms of misogyny in print and electronic media. Honour killing of young lovers and married couples by their relatives brings to ...


The Invalidity Of The 1910 Japan-Korea Annexation Treaty And The Plain Defects Of The Corollaries In Japanese Assertions Of The Sovereign Title To The Dokdo Island, Young K. Kim Dec 2010

The Invalidity Of The 1910 Japan-Korea Annexation Treaty And The Plain Defects Of The Corollaries In Japanese Assertions Of The Sovereign Title To The Dokdo Island, Young K. Kim

Young K Kim

In view of the rule of international law, the Japanese control upon the Korean territories during these 26 years could only been precisely defined as a belligerent occupation. No sovereign title or any legally valid title had ever been entitled to Japan, by this belligerent occupation. So, when the subjection by the Japanese warlords ended, the liberated Korea had immediately resumed the national liberty and the proud cultural heritage. Any vestiges of Japanese control over to the Korean territories should have been eliminated completely, and at once. Removing Japanese warlords from the Korean territory was the only condition for the ...

ABSOLUTE IMMUNITY: A LICENSE TO RAPE JUSTICE AT WILL BY PRENTICE L. WHITE We are all acquainted with the phrase the sanctity of marriage.

Commercial Surrogacy: Is Regulation Necessary To Manage The Industry?, Cara M. Luckey

Cara M Luckey

This paper discusses legal and ethical issues involved with commercial surrogacy both within the United States and Internationally. Inconsistencies in laws create an increased potential for the exploitation of the parties involved in a surrogacy agreement. The validity of contracts varies between states and certain countries that allow surrogacy do not adequately protect the surrogate mothers. As this field of Assisted Reproductive Technology becomes more prevalent, the need for effective regulation of commercial surrogacy is essential.

Christopher C. Cooper Dr.

Recall, a court's “inquiry into the propriety of a state election law depends upon the extent to which a challenged regulation burdens First and Fourteenth Amendment rights." Burdick, 504 U.S. at 434. Plaintiffs contend that there is no doubt that the 12,500 signature requirement burdens the First and Fourteenth Amendments. The extent of the burden is tremendous for the reasons enunciated, in particular how the requirement tramples on the right of freedom of political of association. The 12,500 signature requirement severely burdens First and Fourteenth Amendment rights and are not narrowly drawn to advance Illinois's ...
