Risk And Regulatory Calibration: Wto Compliance Review Of The U.S. Dolphin-Safe Tuna Labeling Regime, Cary Coglianese, André Sapir 2016 University of Pennsylvania Law School

Risk And Regulatory Calibration: Wto Compliance Review Of The U.S. Dolphin-Safe Tuna Labeling Regime, Cary Coglianese, André Sapir

Faculty Scholarship

In a series of recent disputes arising under the TBT Agreement, the Appellate Body has interpreted Article 2.1 to provide that discriminatory and trade-distortive regulation could be permissible if based upon a “legitimate regulatory distinction.” In its recent compliance decision in the US-Tuna II dispute, the AB reaffirmed its view that regulatory distinctions embedded in the U.S. dolphin-safe tuna labeling regime were not legitimate because they were not sufficiently calibrated to the risks to dolphins associated with different tuna fishing conditions. This paper analyzes the AB’s application of the notion of risk-based regulation in the US-Tuna II ...


Traversing The Triangulum: The Intersection Of Tobacco, Legalised Marijuana And Electronic Vaporisers In Denver, Colorado, Emily Anne McDonald, Lucy Popova, Pamela M. Ling 2016 CUNY John Jay College

Traversing The Triangulum: The Intersection Of Tobacco, Legalised Marijuana And Electronic Vaporisers In Denver, Colorado, Emily Anne Mcdonald, Lucy Popova, Pamela M. Ling

Publications and Research

Objective: To explore the intersection of tobacco, legalised marijuana and electronic vaporiser use among young adults in the ‘natural laboratory’ of Colorado, the first state with legalised retail marijuana.

Methods: We conducted semistructured interviews with 32 young adults (18–26 years old) in Denver, Colorado, in 2015 to understand the beliefs and practices related to the use of tobacco, marijuana and vaporisers.

Results: We found ambiguity about whether the phrase ‘to smoke’ refers to the use of tobacco or marijuana products. Smoking marijuana blunts (emptied cigarillo or tobacco wrap filled with marijuana) was common, but few interpreted this as tobacco ...

Memory And Punishment, O. Carter Snead 2016 Notre Dame Law School

Memory And Punishment, O. Carter Snead

O. Carter Snead

This article is the first scholarly exploration of the implications of neurobiological memory modification for criminal law. Its point of entry is the fertile context of criminal punishment, in which memory plays a crucial role. Specifically, this article will argue that there is a deep relationship between memory and the foundational principles justifying how punishment should be distributed, including retributive justice, deterrence, incapacitation, rehabilitation, moral education, and restorative justice. For all such theoretical justifications, the questions of who and how much to punish are inextricably intertwined with how a crime is remembered - by the offender, by the sentencing authority, and ...


Effectively Regulating E-Cigarettes And Their Advertising—And The First Amendment, Eric N. Lindblom 2016 Georgetown University Law Center

Effectively Regulating E-Cigarettes And Their Advertising—And The First Amendment, Eric N. Lindblom

Eric Lindblom

If tobacco smoking did not exist in the United States, there would be no reason, from a public health perspective, to allow addictive, nicotine-containing e-cigarettes to be marketed and sold. Because e-cigarette use, by itself, is neither beneficial nor benign to users and nonusers, the only public health justification for allowing e-cigarettes in the existing U.S. market would be if doing so would not sustain or increase existing smoking levels but would help smokers quit completely or provide addicted smokers a less harmful way to obtain the nicotine they crave. Yet e-cigarettes are now pervasive in the U.S ...


Geographical Indications, Food Safety, And Sustainability: Challenges And Synergies, David A. Wirth 2016 Boston College Law School

Geographical Indications, Food Safety, And Sustainability: Challenges And Synergies, David A. Wirth

Boston College Law School Faculty Papers

This paper examines the legal and policy relationships amongst international standards for GIs, food safety requirements, and voluntary claims related to a food’s attributes. The paper addresses those relationships within the context of international trade agreements protecting GIs, such as the 1994 TRIPS Agreement, the EU-Canada Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA), and the chapter on intellectual property and geographical indications in the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) currently under negotiation. Trade agreements also discipline food safety measures and non-GI indications of quality or safety such as “organic” and “GMO-free.” Accordingly, the paper also considers the extent to ...

The Administrative State And The Common Law: Regulatory Substitutes Or Complements?, Catherine M. Sharkey 2016 NYU School of Law

The Administrative State And The Common Law: Regulatory Substitutes Or Complements?, Catherine M. Sharkey

New York University Public Law and Legal Theory Working Papers

The modern administrative state looms larger than ever, and grows at an ever-accelerating pace. Not everyone is pleased with these developments. Four such individuals — Chief Justice Roberts, Justices Thomas, Alito, and the late Justice Scalia — have expressed their displeasure, indeed their alarm, with consistency, clarity, and vigor. They warn that the rise of administrative agencies, and the attendant ascendance of doctrines of mandatory judicial deference to agency interpretations of federal law, signals no less than the end of our government’s separation-of-powers structure, and our right to live our lives without fear of bureaucratic encroachment at every turn. Their opinions ...

Litigating Medical Device Premarket Classification Decisions For Small Businesses: Have The Courts Given The Fda Too Much Deference? The Case For Taking The Focus Off Of Efficacy, Stephanie P. Fekete 2016 The Catholic University of America, Columbus School of Law

Litigating Medical Device Premarket Classification Decisions For Small Businesses: Have The Courts Given The Fda Too Much Deference? The Case For Taking The Focus Off Of Efficacy, Stephanie P. Fekete

Catholic University Law Review

The manufacturing of innovative medical devices is important for the continued success and growth of the U.S. health care system and economy. The medical device industry is almost exclusively comprised of small businesses. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates the medical device industry and employs a rigorous approval process to determine when products may enter the market. While the FDA’s goal is to authorize the sale of innovative devices that are safe for patient use, device manufacturers argue that the process to obtain FDA approval is unnecessarily expensive, burdensome, and has systemic problems. As a ...

Eu: Has The Time Come To Simplify Food Law?, Luis González Vaqué 2016 Asociación Iberoamericana para el Dereho Alimentario

Eu: Has The Time Come To Simplify Food Law?, Luis González Vaqué

Luis González Vaqué

Current EU food legislation is extremely complex, and unsustainably so. Furthermore, in the context of a food chain consisting of several stages between production and consumption, various factors have helped foster even greater levels of complexity, such as the national exceptions included in the Regulations, the neo-protectionist tendencies of some Member States (typical of a period of generalised economic crisis), etc. A world which is increasingly globalized, competitive and dominated by new technologies needs an effective and efficient regulatory environment: in this context, the Commission has set up the “REFIT Platform” to conduct an ongoing dialogue with Member States and ...

Quando La Legislazione Può Essere Un Ostacolo Alla Libera Circolazione Di Prodotti Alimentari: Il Caso Del "Semaforo Nutrizionale", Luis González Vaqué 2016 Asociación Iberoamericana para el Dereho Alimentario

Quando La Legislazione Può Essere Un Ostacolo Alla Libera Circolazione Di Prodotti Alimentari: Il Caso Del "Semaforo Nutrizionale", Luis González Vaqué

Luis González Vaqué

È stato scritto molto sul criticato (e criticabile) Regolamento (UE) n. 1169/2011 relativo alla fornitura di informazioni sugli alimenti ai consumatori. ‘Brevitatis causae’, nel presente articolo ci occuperemo in particolare delle disposizioni relative all'etichettatura nutrizionale, non applicabili subito dopo l'entrata in vigore di tale Regolamento; si tratta di un insieme di regole ambigue e confuse, la cui applicazione può supporre un reale e potenziale ostacolo alla libera circolazione dei prodotti alimentari all'interno dell'Unione Europea (UE), vale a dire, tutto il contrario di quello che dovrebbe proporsi come obiettivo…

El Reglamento (Ue) 2015/2283 Relativo A Los ‘Novel Foods’: Su Potencial Impacto En El Sector Agropecuario, Luis González Vaqué, Leticia A. Bourges

Luis González Vaqué

El recientemente adoptado Reglamento sobre los “Novel Foods” tiene por objeto mejorar las condiciones que permitan a las empresas poder comercializar más fácilmente alimentos nuevos e innovadores en la UE, manteniendo siempre un elevado nivel de seguridad alimentaria para los consumidores europeos. Permitirá a los consumidores europeos disfrutar de una mayor oferta de alimentos y a la industria agroalimentaria de la UE —el segundo mayor sector de empleo en Europa—, gozar de un entorno más favorable para aprovechar las innovaciones, lo que, a su vez, favorecerá el crecimiento y el empleo. Un nuevo alimento es aquel que no se consumió ...
