Scarce Medical Resources – Parenthood At Every Age, In Every Case And Subsidized By The State?, Yehezkel Margalit

Hezi Margalit

The dilemma of scarce medical resources is deeply rooted in the ancient mankind history, but it has been accelerated in the modern era with the appearance of the bio-medical innovations. This acute dilemma is relevant to all the western developed states, include Israel. Nevertheless, in one field there is the notion that Israel has unlimited medical resources – the fulfillment of its citizen's procreation and parenthood rights. Thus, for sociological, demographical, religious and security reasons the State of Israel invests a vast amount of money to develop and use the various fertility treatments. Israel, today, has the highest per capita ...


Real Men, Luke A. Boso 2015 SelectedWorks

Real Men, Luke A. Boso

Luke A. Boso

Men are discriminated against every day in work and at school because they fail to look or behave like “real” men. Most courts hold that sex discrimination includes treating a man differently because he fails to conform to sex stereotypes. But judges are reluctant to infer intent to discriminate “because of sex” in these cases, in large part because they have no meaningful guidelines for analyzing the evidence. Accordingly, judges routinely grant defendants’ motions for summary judgment and to dismiss based on little more than their own ideas about what masculinity means. This Article encourages judges to approach intent contextually ...

Hall V. Florida: The Death Of Georgia's Beyond A Reasonable Doubt Standard, Adam Lamparello

Adam Lamparello

Welcome: We’re Glad Georgia is On Your Mind.

Georgia is on many minds as Warren Hill prepares for a state court hearing to once again begin the process of trying to show that he is intellectually disabled. As Warren Hill continues to flirt with death, one must ask, is Georgia really going to execute someone that nine experts and a lower court twice found to be mentally retarded? The answer is yes, and the Georgia courts do not understand why we are scratching our heads. The answer is simple: executing an intellectually disabled man is akin to strapping a ...

Rediscovering Congressional Intelligence Oversight: Is Another Church Committee Possible Without Frank Church?, Marc B. Langston 2014 SelectedWorks

Rediscovering Congressional Intelligence Oversight: Is Another Church Committee Possible Without Frank Church?, Marc B. Langston

Marc B. Langston

In 1975-76, the Church Committee challenged Americans’ perception of their government by uncovering and publicly releasing secret activities undertaken by the U.S. Government. U.S. Senator Frank Church’s leadership represents a model for congressional oversight and the Church Committee’s investigation and public hearings remain increasingly relevant in a new age of domestic surveillance. The attached article compares a historical model of congressional oversight and reform, as demonstrated by Senator Frank Church’s leadership as chairman of the Church Committee, with current oversight deficiencies that have induced a growing population of citizens to demand greater protections against government ...

Citizenship In Red And Yellow: Elk V. Wilkins And United States V. Wong Kim Ark, Bethany Berger 2014 SelectedWorks

Citizenship In Red And Yellow: Elk V. Wilkins And United States V. Wong Kim Ark, Bethany Berger

Bethany Berger

American Indians and ethnic Chinese played outsized roles in the transformation of citizenship in the late nineteenth century, shaping debates and providing patterns as the geographic, racial, and ideological borders of citizenship hardened and the federal role and discretion in policing them expanded. Today, this transformation influences everything from the treatment of children of undocumented immigrants to tribal land, sovereign, and treaty rights to the status of U.S. island territories. This Article examines these changes and what they meant for the individuals and communities involved through the lenses of Elk v. Wilkins and United States v. Wong Kim Ark ...
