It's All Downhill From Here: How The Nation's Dispute With Clean Water Act Jurisdiction Is Solved, Spencer H. Newman

Environmental and Earth Law Journal (EELJ)

What makes the United States one of the most prosperous and safest nations in the modern world? Perhaps it is the durable economy, the strong military force, or the Constitutional protections. What most Americans take for granted, however, is something people in many nations base their entire lives around: safe, clean water. Promulgated in 1972, the original Clean Water Act has been opposed and amended over the course of forty years. No provision, however, has been as hotly contested as the § 404 program for “dredge and fill” permits. Specifically, this section led to divisions on what constitutes “water” that is ...

Will Regulations Prevent Litigation? An Analysis Of The U.S. Treasury Departments 2017 Revenue Proposals Concerning Conservation Easment Deductions, Garrett Pratt

The Business, Entrepreneurship & Tax Law Review

This article examines the Treasury’s 2017 proposals refining Section 170(h). This article assesses the likely effects of the Treasury’s proposals by discussing their impact in four key ways: (1) the new requirements placed on “qualified organizations” who receive conservation easement contributions; (2) donors’ increased substantiation requirements; (3) the exclusion of golf courses from Section 170(h) eligibility; and (4) the pilot conservation easement tax credit program. For each of these, this article will: examine the category’s current Section 170(h) regulatory treatment, if any, outline what the new proposals require, and then walk through the likely ...


Transportation Network Companies' Ability To Sustain Success Amid Growing Regulation By Local Governments, Molly Parato 2017 University of Missouri School of Law

Transportation Network Companies' Ability To Sustain Success Amid Growing Regulation By Local Governments, Molly Parato

The Business, Entrepreneurship & Tax Law Review

Companies like Uber and Lyft have irreparably disrupted the taxicab industry, but as the law catches up with these new TNCs, the companies will have to take into consideration the extensive legal fees required in order to either fight or reshape transportation regulations. This is most evident for Uber, the largest TNC, which is currently facing more litigation than any other startup in the world.

This paper will first examine the pricing strategies of TNCs and how their entrance into the market has affected the taxicab industry. This paper will then discuss Uber specifically to determine whether the larger litigation ...


The Shadow Of Free Enterprise: The Unconstitutionality Of The Securities & Exchange Commission's Administrative Law Judges, Linda D. Jellum, Moses M. Tincher 2017 Mercer University School of Law

The Shadow Of Free Enterprise: The Unconstitutionality Of The Securities & Exchange Commission's Administrative Law Judges, Linda D. Jellum, Moses M. Tincher

SMU Law Review

Six years ago, Congress enacted the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act), for the first time giving the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) the power to seek monetary penalties through its in-house adjudication. The SEC already had the power to seek such penalties in federal court. With the Dodd-Frank Act, the SEC’s enforcement division could now choose between an adjudication before an SEC Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) or a civil action before an Article III judge. With this new choice, litigants contended that the SEC realized a significant home-court advantage. For example, the Wall Street ...

City Of Sparks Vs. Reno Newspapers, Inc., 133 Nev. Adv. Op. 56 (August 3, 2017), Brittni Griffith

Nevada Supreme Court Summaries

The Court reviewed an appeal to determine whether an appellant: (1) “properly sought the disclosure of public records by a writ of mandamus,” and (2) whether medical marijuana establishments (“MMEs”) business license identifying information must be disclosed pursuant to the Nevada Public Records Act. The Court held that NRS 239.011 provides the specific means by which to challenge the disclosure of public records, and thus Respondent properly filed a petition for a writ of mandamus. Additionally, pursuant to NRS 453A.370(5), the Department of Health and Human Services’ Division of Public and Behavior Health (“Division”) has the proper ...

Human Equity? Regulating The New Income Share Agreements, Diane M. Ring, Shu-Yi Oei 2017 Boston College Law School

Human Equity? Regulating The New Income Share Agreements, Diane M. Ring, Shu-Yi Oei

Shu-Yi Oei

A controversial new financing phenomenon has recently emerged. New “income share agreements” (“ISAs”) enable an individual to raise funds by pledging a percentage of her future earnings to investors for a certain number of years. These contracts, which are offered by entities such as Fantex, Upstart, Pave, and Lumni, raise important questions for the legal system: Are they a form of modern-day indentured servitude or an innovative breakthrough in human financing? How should they be treated under the law? This Article constitutes the first real attempt in the legal literature to comprehensively address the public policy and legal issues raised ...


Scaling "Local": The Implications Of Greenhouse Gas Regulation In San Bernardino County, Hari M. Osofsky 2017 Washington and Lee University School of Law

Scaling "Local": The Implications Of Greenhouse Gas Regulation In San Bernardino County, Hari M. Osofsky

Hari Osofsky

This Essay analyzes local climate regulation in San Bernardino County as a window into the complexities of defining a local scale in an interconnected world. In so doing, it aims to contribute to the Symposium's broader dialogue about "Territory Without Boundaries" and the Panel's more specific discussion of "Urban Territory in a Global World." As a purely territorial matter, U.S. cities and counties differ substantially in their sizes, the quantity and physical characteristics of their land, the size and density of their populations, and the needs of their citizens. Structurally, these localities remain administrative subunits of states ...


Oversight Of Oversight: A Proposal For More Effective Foia Reform, Aram A. Gavoor, Daniel Miktus 2017 The Catholic University of America, Columbus School of Law

Oversight Of Oversight: A Proposal For More Effective Foia Reform, Aram A. Gavoor, Daniel Miktus

Catholic University Law Review

One of the main mechanisms by which the public can gather information about government activity is through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). This Article suggests that FOIA contains inconsistencies that lead to a less transparent government. Gaps and ambiguities in its language that invite and require federal agency interpretation, are at odds with FOIA’s de novo standard of review. This Article suggests that FOIA’s public policy goals would be better served if Congress takes decisive action to clarify FOIA’s language and fill in such ambiguities and gaps.

Pharmaceutical Federalism, Patricia J. Zettler 2017 Georgia State University College of Law

Pharmaceutical Federalism, Patricia J. Zettler

Faculty Publications By Year

There is growing interest in states regulating pharmaceuticals in ways that challenge the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) federal oversight. For example, in 2013 Maine enacted a law to permit the importation of unapproved drugs, reflecting concerns that federal requirements are too restrictive, while in 2014 Massachusetts banned an FDA-approved painkiller, reflecting concerns that federal requirements are too lax. This Article provides an account of this recent state interest in regulating drugs and considers its consequences. It argues that these state regulatory efforts, and the nascent litigation about them, demonstrate that the preemptive reach of the FDA ...

Nevada Supreme Court Summaries

An attorney for a public body, such as the Nevada Commission on Ethics, must obtain authorization from the client in a public meeting before filing an appeal of a district court decision. Failure to obtain authorization results in a defective, invalid notice of appeal.
