Why The State Cannot “Abolish Marriage” A Partial Defense Of Legal Marriage Based On The Structure Of Intimate Duties, Gregg Strauss 2015 Duke Law

Why The State Cannot “Abolish Marriage” A Partial Defense Of Legal Marriage Based On The Structure Of Intimate Duties, Gregg Strauss

Faculty Scholarship

Does a liberal state have a legitimate interest in defining the terms of intimate relationships? Recently, several scholars have answered this question “no” and concluded that the state should abolish marriage, along with all other categories of intimate status. While politically infeasible, these proposals offer a powerful thought experiment. In this Article, I use this thought experiment to argue that the law cannot avoid relying on intimate status norms and has legitimate reasons to retain an intimate status like marriage.

The argument has three parts. First, even if the law abolished licensed status categories, ordinary doctrines in tort, contract and ...


Summary Of In Re Parental Rights As To A.L., 130 Nev. Adv. Op. 91, Stephanie Bedker 2014 University of Nevada, Las Vegas -- William S. Boyd School of Law

Summary Of In Re Parental Rights As To A.L., 130 Nev. Adv. Op. 91, Stephanie Bedker

Nevada Supreme Court Summaries

The Court determined that (1) when seeking to maintain parental rights, parents have a right to bring material evidence rebutting a NRS 432B.450 presumption that a child is in need of protection; and (2) that district courts cannot rely on juvenile court findings of intentional abuse to terminate parental rights where such evidence has been improperly excluded.

Making The Modern Family: Interracial Intimacy And The Social Production Of Whiteness, Camille Gear Rich 2014 BLR

Making The Modern Family: Interracial Intimacy And The Social Production Of Whiteness, Camille Gear Rich

University of Southern California Legal Studies Working Paper Series

This Book Review uses Angela Onwuachi-Willig's Book, According to Our Hearts, Rhinelander v. Rhinelander and the Law of the Multiracial Family as an opportunity to explore the multiracial family's role in American society. The discussion unpacks the discussion of "interracially" explored in her book by precisely outlining the various discrimination modalities covered by her discussion of interraciality-based discrimination. The review reveals that Onwuachi-Willig explores six different types of discrimination, some of which require engagement with cutting-edge disputes in antidiscrimination theory and law. The Review teases out these various discrimination constructs and asks in a more deliberate fashion how ...

The Internet Is The New Public Forum: Why Riley V. California Supports Net Neutrality, Adam Lamparello

Adam Lamparello

Technology has ushered civil liberties into the virtual world, and the law must adapt by providing legal protections to individuals who speak, assemble, and associate in that world. The original purposes of the First Amendment, which from time immemorial have protected civil liberties and preserved the free, open, and robust exchange of information, support net neutrality. After all, laws or practices that violate cherished freedoms in the physical world also violate those freedoms in the virtual world. The battle over net neutrality is “is absolutely the First Amendment issue of our time,” just as warrantless searches of cell phones were ...

Access For Access: Ensuring Access To Federal Courts For Parents Seeking To Exercise Rights Of Access Under The Hague Convention On The Civil Aspects Of International Child Abduction, Katherine L. Olson 2014 The Catholic University of America, Columbus School of Law

Access For Access: Ensuring Access To Federal Courts For Parents Seeking To Exercise Rights Of Access Under The Hague Convention On The Civil Aspects Of International Child Abduction, Katherine L. Olson

Catholic University Law Review

Each year, thousands of children are abducted across international borders, often by one of their parents. The Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction (Hague Convention) and its implementing legislation, the International Child Abduction Remedies Act (ICARA), provide recourse to the non-abducting parent. However, recent cases in the U.S. Courts of Appeal for the Fourth and Second Circuits have created a circuit split on the issue of whether rights of access, in contrast to rights of custody, convey a private right of action in U.S. federal courts under the Hague Convention. This Comment examines this ...


Famigration (Fam Imm): The Next Frontier In Immigration Law, Kari E. Hong Professor 2014 Boston College Law School

Famigration (Fam Imm): The Next Frontier In Immigration Law, Kari E. Hong Professor

Kari E. Hong

The recently published article, Immigration’s Family Values by Professor Kerry Abrams and R. Kent Piacenti, and the forthcoming Removing Citizens: Parenthood, Citizenship, and Immigration Courts by Kari Hong examine how, when, and why immigration law uses a different definition of family than the one used in state courts. Despite their differences, in conversation, these two pieces highlight how the Department of Homeland Security likely is either following misguided policies or pursuing improper objectives when creating a federal family law. Crimmigration (Crim Imm) scholarship successfully identified the ways in which the (purported) civil proceedings of immigration law needed the extra ...

Ironic Simplicity: Why Shaken Baby Syndrome Misdiagnoses Should Result In Automatic Reimbursement For The Wrongly Accused, Jay Simmons 2014 Seattle University School of Law

Ironic Simplicity: Why Shaken Baby Syndrome Misdiagnoses Should Result In Automatic Reimbursement For The Wrongly Accused, Jay Simmons

Seattle University Law Review

Shaken baby syndrome (SBS)’s shortcomings include the debatable science behind SBS theory and diagnosis—the questioning of which has grown more vociferous—and the arguably biased, discriminatory treatment of the accused. Professor Deborah Tuerkheimer notes that the evolving SBS skepticism and contentious debate has resulted in "chaos" in many SBS adjudications and within the medical and biomechanical fields, with the same SBS proponents and opponents continually crusading for and clashing over their beliefs. The issues surrounding the medical and biomechanical components of SBS diagnoses have been repeatedly examined and discussed, and are not the focus of this Note. This ...
