The Control On In-Legislative Actions In Jordanian And Spanish Constitutions- الرقابة على الأعمال غير التشريعيـــة في النظامـيــــــن الدستورين الأردني والأسباني, Eid Ah. Alhosban

Journal Sharia and Law

The subject of Parliament actions needs more interest by Researchers, particularly those in-legislative ones, which mostly touch the individuals’ rights and freedom. In legislative actions -particularly the Parliament control, we see that efforts are paid to know whether such actions are constitutional or not, without any interest in the other section of these actions, i.e. the in-legislative ones.

Accordingly, this article gives models of some developed practices in the field of controlling in-legislative parliament actions, in order that we can benefit from them to urge legislators to develop our Jordanian law in this field

Reply ‘Stop’ To Cancel: Whether Receiving One Unwanted Marketing Text Message Confers Standing In Federal Court, Curtis R. Crooke 2021 Boston College Law School

Reply ‘Stop’ To Cancel: Whether Receiving One Unwanted Marketing Text Message Confers Standing In Federal Court, Curtis R. Crooke

Boston College Law Review

On August 28, 2019, the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit, in Salcedo v. Hanna, created a split regarding whether the receipt of a text message in violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 (TCPA) confers standing to sue. The TCPA contains prohibitions on the use of telephonic equipment for telemarketing purposes, which the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has interpreted to include text messaging. The Act also provides a private right of action for citizens to sue for violations if they have standing, meaning, in part, that they have suffered an injury. In Salcedo, the ...

The importance of the complimentary role of constitutionaljurisdiction in comparative constitutionalregimes is inherent in Basic, fundamental Rights and Public Freedoms and Liberties legislation. The acknowledgement of these rights morally is ambiguous in contemporary constitutionallaws.

A (Solicited) Call For Clarity: The Definition Of Automatic Telephone Dialing System After Gadelhak, Scott J. Sheltra 2021 Boston College Law School

A (Solicited) Call For Clarity: The Definition Of Automatic Telephone Dialing System After Gadelhak, Scott J. Sheltra

Boston College Law Review

In 2020, in Gadelhak v. AT&T Services, the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit upheld the Northern District of Illinois’s ruling that a tool that sends text message surveys to consumers was not an automatic telephone dialing system under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991. The Seventh Circuit reached this decision by rendering a different interpretation for the statutory definition of an automatic dialer than the district court. Gadelhak widened an already substantial circuit court split regarding what technologies the Act covers. This Comment evaluates the strengths and shortcomings of the Seventh Circuit’s ...


Privileging Opinion, Denigrating Discourse: How The Law Of Defamation Incentivizes News Talk-Show Hyperbole, Clay Calvert 2021 Pepperdine University

Privileging Opinion, Denigrating Discourse: How The Law Of Defamation Incentivizes News Talk-Show Hyperbole, Clay Calvert

Pepperdine Law Review

This Article examines how defamation law promotes a culture of hyperbole and exaggeration on television news talk shows at the expense of more meaningful dialogue and discourse. The Article uses the 2020 federal court rulings in McDougal v. Fox News Network, LLC and Herring Networks, Inc. v. Maddow as analytical springboards to address this problem. In both cases, judges dismissed defamation claims stemming from comments made by well-known talk-show hosts—Fox News’s Tucker Carlson in McDougal and MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow in Herring Networks—on the ground that their remarks would not be understood by viewers as factual assertions ...

Contested Places, Utility Pole Spaces: A Competition And Safety Framework For Analyzing Utility Pole Association Rules, Roles, And Risks, Catherine J.K. Sandoval 2021 The Catholic University of America, Columbus School of Law

Contested Places, Utility Pole Spaces: A Competition And Safety Framework For Analyzing Utility Pole Association Rules, Roles, And Risks, Catherine J.K. Sandoval

Catholic University Law Review

As climate change augurs longer wildfire seasons, safe, reliable, and competitive energy and communications markets depend on sound infrastructure and well-calibrated regulation. The humble wooden utility pole, first deployed in America in 1844 to extend telegraph service, forms the twenty-first century’s technological scaffold. Utility poles are increasingly contested places where competition, safety, and reliability meet. Yet, regulators and academics have largely overlooked the risks posed by century-old private utility pole associations in California, composed of private and public utility pole owners and some entities who attach facilities to utility poles. No academic articles have examined the rules, roles, and ...

The Applicability Of Economic And Social Rights To Litigation In Palestine: Implementation, Enforcement, And The Role Of The Supreme Constitutional Court, Asem Khalil 2021 NYU School of Law & Birzeit University

The Applicability Of Economic And Social Rights To Litigation In Palestine: Implementation, Enforcement, And The Role Of The Supreme Constitutional Court, Asem Khalil

Journal Sharia and Law

In this paper, I will discuss whether Economic and Social Rights (ESRs) constitute fundamental rights in Palestine, as a result of their entrenchment in the constitutional text, the Basic Law of the Palestinian Authority; and if yes, which ones. In fact, while in International Human Rights Law (IHRL), ESRs are presented as a monolithic category of rights, they are not treated as such in national constitutions. Some rights are simply missing from the text; others are present but enjoy different status within the constitution – often depending on the way they are written in the constitutional text, and on the way ...


Amending The Constitution Through Judicial Interpretation: A Comparative Study, Dr. Essam Saeed Obeidi 2021 United Arab Emirates University

Amending The Constitution Through Judicial Interpretation: A Comparative Study, Dr. Essam Saeed Obeidi

Journal Sharia and Law

The Constitution is amended in two ways: the first is official following the procedures provided for in the Constitution, and the second is an informal amendment of the Constitution without following the formal procedures provided for in the constitutional document. Among the informal methods of amending the Constitution is the judicial interpretation where the constitutional judge exploits of the generality of the constitutional texts and their ambiguity and shortcomings in order to modify their meaning while keeping the form of the word unchanged by adding new meanings or replacing the existing meaning with a new meaning , The Constitutional Judge performs ...

Combating Fake News With “Reasonable Standards”, Tawanna D. Lee 2021 University of California, Hastings College of the Law

Combating Fake News With “Reasonable Standards”, Tawanna D. Lee

Hastings Communications and Entertainment Law Journal

Fake news is an intractable concern around the globe, sowing division and distrust in institutions, and undermining election integrity. This Article analyzes the spectrum of private and public regulation of “fake news” from comparative law and normative perspectives. In the United States, combating fake news shares surprising bipartisan support in an ever-divided political landscape. While several proposals have emerged that would strip Internet media companies of the liability shield for third-party content, it is unlikely that they would survive the seemingly insurmountable First Amendment scrutiny. This Article argues for a different tact—an amendment to the Communications Decency Act that ...

The Contribution Of Eu Law To The Regulation Of Online Speech, Luc von Danwitz 2021 University of Michigan Law School

The Contribution Of Eu Law To The Regulation Of Online Speech, Luc Von Danwitz

Michigan Technology Law Review

Internet regulation in the European Union (EU) is receiving significant attention and criticism in the United States. The European Court of Justice’s (ECJ) judgment in the case Glawischnig-Piesczek v. Facebook Ireland, in which the ECJ found a take-down order against Facebook for defamatory content with global effect permissible under EU law, was closely scrutinized in the United States. These transsystemic debates are valuable but need to be conducted with a thorough understanding of the relevant legal framework and its internal logic. This note aims to provide the context to properly assess the role the ECJ and EU law play ...

Family vloggers are among the millions of content creators on YouTube. In general, vloggers frequently upload recorded videos of their daily lives. Family vloggers are unique because they focus their content around their familial relationships and the lives of their children.
