Revolution Or Continuity? Bank Hamizrachi's Role In The Development Of Judicial Review Models In Israel מהפכה או המשכיות?: מקומו של פסק דין בנק המזרחי בהתפתחות המודלים של ביקורת שיפוטית בישראל, Ittai Bar-Siman-Tov

Dr. Ittai Bar-Siman-Tov

This article examines the role of the Bank Hamizrachi case in the development of models of judicial review in Israel. The article analyzes the developments over the years in the attitude of the case-law toward the various models of judicial review: from the era of parliamentary sovereignty; through the Bergman case, which created a model of semi-procedural judicial review stemming from procedural constitutional entrenchment; and the Nimrodi case, which recognized the procedural model a few years before Bank Hamizrachi, which in turn, created the substantive constitutional model; to the Quantinsky ruling in the matter of a multi-apartment tax, which was ...

Resolving Time Sensitive Construction Disputes: Are Attorneys Just Getting In The Way?, Jeremy Winter

Pepperdine Dispute Resolution Law Journal

In addition to promoting the usage of other compelling dispute resolution alternatives such as dispute review boards, this Article advances the argument for marginalizing the over-involvement of and dependence upon zealous adversarial attorneys when attempting to resolve time sensitive construction disputes. More specifically, the remainder of this Article is divided into four main sections. Part II will introduce the construction industry's transactional system through the lens of principal construction professionals, examine the different types of construction contracts, and outline some common time sensitive construction disputes. Part III will provide an overview of alternative dispute resolution's rich connection to ...

High Noon At Arlington Ranch Homeowners Ass’N V. Eighth Judicial Dist. Court, 133 Nev. Adv. Op. 66 (Sept. 27, 2017) (En Banc), Homero Gonzalez

Nevada Supreme Court Summaries

Under NRS Chapters 40 and 116, homeowners associations (HOAs) have the representational standing to represent all homeowners who purchase their homes after litigation is commenced by or against the HOAs. However, the Court clarified that there is no such representational standing to bring or continue to pursue a case on behalf of homeowners who sell their units after litigation has begun.

What Does The Supreme Court Do?, Sam Issacharoff

New York University Public Law and Legal Theory Working Papers

This chapter is from a pre-election conference at Humboldt University on, “Obama’s Court: Recent Changes in U.S. Constitutional Law in Transatlantic Perspective.” Presented for a European audience, this chapter advances three arguments to challenge the easy perception that the main work of the U.S. Supreme Court consists of highly freighted social rights opinions, typically yielding 5-4 outcomes. First, data on Supreme Court decisions reveals first the small number of telltale 5-4 decisions, amid a much larger number of unanimous decisions in decided cases, and a striking paucity of dissents about which cases to take in the first ...

Freedom Of Artistic Creation In The Constitution Of The Republic Of Poland, Filip Cieply 2017 The University of Akron

Freedom Of Artistic Creation In The Constitution Of The Republic Of Poland, Filip Cieply

ConLawNOW

The question of freedom of artistic creation, and of its integral aspect at the boundaries of art, is both intriguing in theoretical terms and significant in virtually every age and culture. Limitation of freedom of artistic creation is an issue that crosses various paradigms, hierarchies of values and normative systems.

The aim of this paper is to give an introduction to the interpretation of Article 73 of the Constitution of the Republic of Poland, which provides for freedom of artistic expression. In particular, the focus is put on the constitutional basis for legally limiting the freedom of artistic creation.

Abstract

The Construction Contracts Act 2013 was introduced into the Irish construction industry for the primary benefit of the sub-contractors, and to address their exposure to the poor payment practices that were prevalent in the industry.

The Act seeks to regulate payments under construction contracts and to provide fast track dispute resolution for matters related to payments. The Act is centred ...


Render Unto Caesar: How Misunderstanding A Century Of Free Exercise Jurisprudence Forged And Then Fractured The Rfra Coalition, John S. Blattner 2017 Claremont McKenna College

Render Unto Caesar: How Misunderstanding A Century Of Free Exercise Jurisprudence Forged And Then Fractured The Rfra Coalition, John S. Blattner

CMC Senior Theses

This thesis provides a comprehensive history of Supreme Court Free Exercise Clause jurisprudence from 1879 until the present day. It describes how a jurisdictional approach to free exercise dominated the Court’s rulings from its first Free Exercise Clause case in 1879 until Sherbert v. Verner in 1963, and how Sherbert introduced an accommodationist precedent which was ineffectively, incompletely, and inconsistently defined by the Court. This thesis shows how proponents of accommodationism furthered a false narrative overstating the scope and consistency of Sherbert’s precedent following the Court’s repudiation of accommodationism and return to full jurisdictionalism with Employment Division ...

Environmental Racism, American Exceptionalism, And Cold War Human Rights, Carmen G. Gonzalez 2016 Seattle University

Environmental Racism, American Exceptionalism, And Cold War Human Rights, Carmen G. Gonzalez

Carmen G. Gonzalez


Environmental justice scholars and activists coined the terms “environmental racism” to describe the disproportionate concentration of environmental hazards in neighborhoods populated by racial and ethnic minorities. Having exhausted domestic legal remedies (or having concluded that these remedies are unavailable), communities of color in the United States are increasingly turning to international human rights law and institutions to challenge environmental racism.

 

However, the United States has ratified only a handful of human rights treaties, and has limited the domestic application of these treaties through reservations and declarations that preclude judicial enforcement in the absence of implementing legislation. Indeed, the ...
