Entrelinhas Políticas, Paulo Ferreira da Cunha 2011 Universidade do Porto

Entrelinhas Políticas, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

É preciso saber interpretar. Os sinais e as palavras. E em momentos de crise, mais ainda. Há sinais de demagogia crescente. Bodes expiatórios são reencontrados, e as consabidas receitas de salvadores providenciais. O período eleitoral que certamente se avizinha (não era preciso ser profeta para o esperar neste artigo, escrito antes da demissão do Primeiro-ministro) será fértil em palavras. Mas as coisas são simples. E é preciso sobretudo traduzir o que será dito... É tão simples, afinal. Basta ver onde cada um quer chegar... E isso depende dos seus interesses e dos que defenda. Altruístas ou não.

Ideal Theory And The Limits Of Historical Narrative, Anthony O'Rourke 2011 Columbia Law School

Ideal Theory And The Limits Of Historical Narrative, Anthony O'Rourke

Columbia Public Law & Legal Theory Working Papers

Some intellectual concepts that once played a central role in America’s constitutional history are, for both better and worse, no longer part of our political language.[1] These concepts may be so alien to us that they would remain invisible without carefully reexamining the past in order to challenge the received narratives of America’s constitutional development.[2] Should constitutional theorists undertake this kind of historical reexamination? If so, to what extent should they be willing to stray from the disciplinary norms that govern intellectual history? And what normative aims can they reasonably expect to achieve by exploring ideas ...

And Death Shall Have No Dominion: How To Achieve The Categorical Exemption Of Mentally Retarded Defendants From Execution, J. Amy Dillard 2011 University of Baltimore School of Law

And Death Shall Have No Dominion: How To Achieve The Categorical Exemption Of Mentally Retarded Defendants From Execution, J. Amy Dillard

All Faculty Scholarship

This article examines the Court’s categorical exclusion of mentally retarded defendants from execution and explores how trial courts should employ procedures to accomplish heightened reliability in the mental retardation determination; it maintains that if a mentally retarded defendant is subjected to a death sentence then the Atkins directive has been ignored. To satisfy the Atkins Court’s objective of protecting mentally retarded defendants from the “special risk of wrongful execution,” the article explores whether trial courts should engage in a unified, pre-trial competency assessment in all capital cases where the defendant asserts mental retardation as a bar to execution ...

La Protección Al Consumidor En Casos De Discriminación Por Orientación Sexual Y El Estándar De Prueba Impuesto Por Indecopi Y Legitimado Por El Poder Judicial., Beatriz Ramirez, Jeannette Llaja 2011 Pontificia Universidad Catolica del Peru

La Protección Al Consumidor En Casos De Discriminación Por Orientación Sexual Y El Estándar De Prueba Impuesto Por Indecopi Y Legitimado Por El Poder Judicial., Beatriz Ramirez, Jeannette Llaja

Beatriz Ramirez

El presente artículo analiza el estándar de prueba que exige INDECOPI y el Poder Judicial a un consumidor que denuncia discriminación. Para ello analiza el proceso administrativo y el posterior proceso judicial contencioso administrativo generados a partir de la denuncia presentada por el señor Chrisstian Manuel Olivera Fuentes contra Supermercados Peruanos S.A. por actos de discriminación por su orientación sexual. La hipótesis a confirmar es que INDECOPI ha construido un estándar de probanza, aplicando criterios de valoración probatoria, que contradicen el artículo 65 de la Constitución vigente así como el principio pro consumidor reconocido en el artículo V del ...

Lochner, Lawrence, And Liberty, Joseph F. Morrissey 2011 Stetson University College of Law

Lochner, Lawrence, And Liberty, Joseph F. Morrissey

Georgia State University Law Review

Many of the states of the United States have statutes, constitutional provisions, and court decisions that deny individuals the right to have a family, specifically a spouse and children, based on sexual orientation.

Advocates have made a wide variety of arguments attacking such restrictions. Scholars and litigants frequently argue that such acts violate constitutional guarantees of equal protection or invade a constitutional right to privacy. However, such arguments are often defeated by counter arguments presented with religious, moral, and even emotional fervor.

This article presents and defends a new analytical framework based on liberty of contract to advance gay rights ...
