Private Rights Of Action, 27 Depaul L. Rev. 1117 (1978), Michael P. Seng Jan 1978

Private Rights Of Action, 27 Depaul L. Rev. 1117 (1978), Michael P. Seng

Faculty Scholarship

In order for Sections 503 and 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 to practically prohibit employment discrimination against handicapped persons, a broad array of effective and prompt remedies is needed. In this Article, the author examines judicial findings of legislative intent to create private causes of action in the enactment of various civil rights legislation and concludes that a private cause of action is an available mechanism to enforce the federal statutory scheme prohibiting discrimination in the employment of handicapped individuals. While Sections 503 and 504 are silent as to whether a private cause of action exists, Professor Seng ...

Legislative Notes: The Education Of All Handicapped Children Act Of 1975, Donald W. Keim

University of Michigan Journal of Law Reform

Part I reviews the landmark judicial decisions which have established the right of handicapped children to participate in free, public education. The basic provisions of the Education of All Handicapped Children Act of 1975 are then presented in Part II. The funding provisions are discussed in Part III with particular emphasis upon the tension between the promise of federal largesse and the expense of compliance with statutory and judicial requirements. Part IV reviews prior efforts to obtain judicial recognition of a substantive right to an appropriate education and suggests some ways in which the 1975 Act may alter the framework ...

The Definition Of Disability In Social Security And Supplemental Security Income: Drawing The Bounds Of Social Welfare Estates, Lance Liebman Jan 1976

The Definition Of Disability In Social Security And Supplemental Security Income: Drawing The Bounds Of Social Welfare Estates, Lance Liebman

Faculty Scholarship

Federal aid to the disabled is a vast enterprise; over nine billion dollars are annually paid to five million beneficiaries. In this Article, Professor Liebman points out how the ad hoc nature of social welfare legislation and programming has resulted in a system that produces inconsistent and sometimes inequitable determinations of disability. The present system, he argues, draws significant economic and social distinctions among the disabled, as well as distinctions between the disabled and the unemployed, that have been inadequately explained and justified. By focusing on worker expectations generated by the administration of our disability programs, and on the structural ...

Voluntary Euthanasia, Arval A. Morris Apr 1970

Voluntary Euthanasia, Arval A. Morris

Washington Law Review

To avoid the possibility of confusion, it is necessary to distinguish voluntary euthanasia from other similar, but not necessarily related situations. By voluntary euthanasia I refer to one specific situation, and to no other. Any definition of the principle of voluntary euthanasia must lay emphasis on the word "voluntary" as it specifically applies to the right of an adult person who is in command of his faculties to have his life ended by a physician, pursuant to his own intelligent request, under specific conditions prescribed by law, and by painless means. Thus, voluntary euthanasia involves at least two willing persons ...
