The Secretary's Emails: The Intersection Of Transparency, Security, And Technology, Joshua Jacobson 2017 University of Florida Levin College of Law

The Secretary's Emails: The Intersection Of Transparency, Security, And Technology, Joshua Jacobson

Florida Law Review

Transparency laws are designed to inform the public of government workings and to hold government officials accountable to the people. The emergence of email has amplified the government’s communicative abilities and simultaneously created major challenges for records management. These challenges were put on full display when it was revealed that Hillary Clinton exclusively used a private email address and server for government business while serving as Secretary of State. The email arrangement Clinton used was permissible under the law at that time, and despite recent changes, government employees may still use private email for non-classified correspondence so long as ...


Does The Telephone Consumer Protection Act Violate Due Process As Applied?, J. Gregory Sidak 2017 University of Florida Levin College of Law

Does The Telephone Consumer Protection Act Violate Due Process As Applied?, J. Gregory Sidak

Florida Law Review

The Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 (TCPA) subjects a telemarketer’s use of autodialed telephone calls, automated text messages, and faxes to statutory damages of $500 per violation or up to $1,500 per willful violation. Depending on the circumstances of the violating communication, the TCPA’s penalties can exceed by orders of magnitude any plausible economic estimate of the recipient’s actual harm, such that the TCPA, as applied, likely violates the Due Process Clause of the Fifth Amendment.

How Might The Supreme Court, If It Reviews The Federal Communication's 2015 Open Internet Order, Utilize The Chevron And Arbitrary And Capricious Tests?, John B. Meisel

Catholic University Journal of Law and Technology

The article focuses on two Supreme Court decisions, King v. Burwell and FCC v. Fox Televisions Stations, Inc., that provide diametrically different models for how deferential a court should be when it reviews administrative action. The former case addresses how deferential a court should be for an agency’s statutory interpretation of an ambiguous statute for a question that has significant economic and political effects but Congress had not expressly delegated the question to the agency. The latter case addresses how deferential a court should be when an agency’s changes a policy that is within its statutory authority. These ...


Section 337 Of The Tariff Act Of 1930 And Its Impacts On China, Yiqing Yin 2017 Boston University

Section 337 Of The Tariff Act Of 1930 And Its Impacts On China, Yiqing Yin

Catholic University Journal of Law and Technology

337 of the Tariff Act of 1930 (“Section 337”) is one of the statutes that prohibit unfair trade or unfair competition in importation, and it aims at protecting intellectual property at the United States borders. Because of the international impacts of Section 337 and the injunctive nature of its remedies, the application of the statute has profound impacts on the trade between U.S. and other countries.

China is a country that has enormous trade with the U.S and imports large amounts of goods to the U.S. each year. Moreover, the weak intellectual property protection in China has ...

Nobody Puts Blockchain In A Corner: The Disruptive Role Of Blockchain Technology In The Financial Services Industry And Current Regulatory Issues, Elizabeth Sara Ross

Catholic University Journal of Law and Technology

This Note argues that the disjointed digital currency licensing regimes and complex landscape of state-by-state money transmission licensing directly threaten to stifle innovation, capital formation, consumer protection, and national cybersecurity. To ensure the U.S. remains competitive in the global financial ...

Yet Another French Exception: The Legal, Cultural, And Political Dimensions Of France’S Support For The Digital Right To Be Forgotten, Zarine Kharazian 2017 College of William and Mary

Yet Another French Exception: The Legal, Cultural, And Political Dimensions Of France’S Support For The Digital Right To Be Forgotten, Zarine Kharazian

Undergraduate Honors Theses

In 2015, the European Court of Justice established an online “right to be forgotten” in Europe. Under this right to be forgotten, individuals may request that search engines delist links that reference their personal information from search results. Search engines need not grant these requests, but they are now obligated to review them.

While the Court's decision to establish the right to be forgotten certainly ignited a debate among Western privacy scholars and policymakers hailing from both sides of the Atlantic, no country has participated in the debate with as much fervor as has France. This thesis addresses the ...

The first section will explore Stingray technology and how it works. The second section will frame the issue and describe New York’s current standard. The third section will discuss the judicial response to the issue and how New York courts seem to place the burden of upholding privacy on the citizen, instead of the government. The third section will also discuss ...
