Thin Rationality Review, Jacob Gersen, Adrian Vermeule 2016 Harvard Law School

Thin Rationality Review, Jacob Gersen, Adrian Vermeule

Michigan Law Review

Under the Administrative Procedure Act, courts review and set aside agency action that is “arbitrary [and] capricious.” In a common formulation of rationality review, courts must either take a “hard look” at the rationality of agency decisionmaking, or at least ensure that agencies themselves have taken a hard look. We will propose a much less demanding and intrusive interpretation of rationality review—a thin version. Under a robust range of conditions, rational agencies have good reason to decide in a manner that is inaccurate, nonrational, or arbitrary. Although this claim is seemingly paradoxical or internally inconsistent, it simply rests on ...


Improving Patent Quality Through Post-Grant Claim Amendments: A Comparison Of European Opposition Proceedings And U.S. Post-Grant Proceedings, Jennifer Turchyn 2016 University of Michigan Law School

Improving Patent Quality Through Post-Grant Claim Amendments: A Comparison Of European Opposition Proceedings And U.S. Post-Grant Proceedings, Jennifer Turchyn

Michigan Law Review

Congress enacted the Leahy-Smith America Invents Act to encourage innovation, strengthen U.S. patents, and achieve greater uniformity with foreign patent systems. The America Invents Act introduced two new post-grant patent validity proceedings: inter partes review and post-grant review. The new U.S. proceedings are similar to European opposition proceedings, but there are significant differences in the extent of the patent owner’s ability to amend claims, the patent’s claim construction, the patent owner’s evidentiary burden, and the procedural requirements. The U.S. proceedings result in a very limited opportunity for amendment and a high percentage of invalidated ...


What Should Tribes Expect From Federal Regulations? The Bureau Of Land Management’S Fracking Rule And The Problems With Treating Indian And Federal Lands Identically, Monte Mills 2016 Alexander Blewett III School of Law at the University of Montana

What Should Tribes Expect From Federal Regulations? The Bureau Of Land Management’S Fracking Rule And The Problems With Treating Indian And Federal Lands Identically, Monte Mills

Public Land and Resources Law Review

The federal government’s various Indian policies create a number of boundaries across which Indian tribes must negotiate to ensure successful management of their natural resources. For example, the removal, reservation, and treaty-making period of the late 18th and early 19th Centuries created territorial boundaries that, for many tribes, did not align with their traditional homelands. Thereafter, allotment of many of the resulting tribal reservations decimated the tribal land base and left a checkerboard ownership pattern of land within many reservations. More recent decisions of the United States Supreme Court have limited tribal authority over the non-Indian owned squares on ...


Pharmaceutical Lemons: Innovation And Regulation In The Drug Industry, Ariel Katz 2016 University of Toronto

Pharmaceutical Lemons: Innovation And Regulation In The Drug Industry, Ariel Katz

Ariel Katz

Before a new drug can be marketed, the Food and Drug Administration must be satisfied that it is safe and effective. According to conventional wisdom, the cost and delay involved in this process diminish the incentives to invest in the development of new drugs. Accordingly, several reforms aimed at restoring such incentives have been implemented or advocated. This Article challenges the central argument that drug regulation and drug innovation are necessarily at odds with one another. Although intuitively appealing, the argument that drug regulation negatively affects the incentives to innovate does not fully capture the role that regulation plays in ...

States Vs. Fda, Catherine M. Sharkey 2016 NYU School of Law

States Vs. Fda, Catherine M. Sharkey

New York University Public Law and Legal Theory Working Papers

In the United States, food and drug safety is regulated in two ways: a stringent ex ante, national regime led by the Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) and a robust ex post system of state-law enforcement. This federalist structure, operating on dual regulatory levels, sets the stage for synergy and for conflict.

Two recent high-profile preemption lawsuits showcase a novel dimension of the dual regulatory structure: the role of states as competing and/or complementary actors vis-à-vis the FDA in regulating food and drug safety. In Zogenix, Inc. v. Patrick, a federal district court enjoined the Massachusetts government from enacting ...

Assessing Greenhouse Gas Emissions In The Oil Sands: Legislative Or Administrative (In)Action?, Mark Friedman 2016 Osgoode Hall Law School

Assessing Greenhouse Gas Emissions In The Oil Sands: Legislative Or Administrative (In)Action?, Mark Friedman

Western Journal of Legal Studies

The development of the oil sands in Alberta has become a focal point in Canada’s response to global climate change. Before an oil sands project can proceed, it must first undergo environmental assessment. This process frequently engages both provincial and federal environmental assessment legislation, which are implemented by administrative tribunals. The purpose of the paper is two-fold: firstly, to determine whether environmental assessment legislation provides regulators with the tools to assess the impact of an oil sands project's greenhouse gas emissions on the environment, and secondly, to examine how tribunals have been enforcing those standards during assessments. This ...


To Govern Is To Choose: A Critique Of Ontario’S New Plan To Publicly Fund In Vitro Fertilization, Rozmin Mediratta 2016 University of Western Ontario, Faculty of Law

To Govern Is To Choose: A Critique Of Ontario’S New Plan To Publicly Fund In Vitro Fertilization, Rozmin Mediratta

Western Journal of Legal Studies

In December 2015, the government of Ontario introduced the Fertility Program, a plan to publicly fund in vitro fertilization (IVF). The Fertility Program seeks to use the advanced reproductive technology to reduce the occurrence of multiple births and to increase access to fertility treatments. This paper does not argue that IVF should not be publicly funded at all, but rather posits that in a time when the government is restricting healthcare spending, scarce resources must be allocated appropriately. The Ontario government has failed to craft a cost-effective funding program to maximize these limited resources by expanding the role of healthcare ...
