The Bad, The Ugly, And The Uglier: How Fear And Misconceptions Are Flushing Away Equal Rights And Treatment For Transgender People, Laura Falco 2016 Texas A&M University School of Law

The Bad, The Ugly, And The Uglier: How Fear And Misconceptions Are Flushing Away Equal Rights And Treatment For Transgender People, Laura Falco

Tennessee Journal of Race, Gender, & Social Justice

Our country has gone through multiple social changes over the years, and now we find ourselves in the middle of another change—one involving the transgender community. This community is and has been continuously fighting for equal rights and treatment. It is 2016 and the fight for equal rights in our country is at a tipping point. A tip in one direction would constitute a huge step in the fight for equal rights, but a tip in the other direction could result in unprecedented effects on transgender individuals and the rest of the LGBTQ community. The LGBTQ community just wants ...

Affirmative Confusion: A Proposed Paradigm Shift In Higher Education Disciplinary Proceedings, Kendal Poirier 2016 University of Massachusetts School of Law

Affirmative Confusion: A Proposed Paradigm Shift In Higher Education Disciplinary Proceedings, Kendal Poirier

University of Massachusetts Law Review

This Note examines the codification of affirmative consent statutes in New York and California as well as the language of Title IX of Education Amendments of 1972, with the ultimate goal of demonstrating that the two statutory constructions cannot co-exist without jeopardizing accused students’ due process rights. During the course of a college or university disciplinary proceeding in an affirmative consent jurisdiction, the potential exists for a burden shift onto the accused student to affirmatively prove consent was obtained. Such a shift directly conflicts with Title IX mandates for prompt and equitable treatment. This Note proposes that in order to ...

Underenforcement As Unequal Protection, Deborah Tuerkheimer 2016 Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law

Underenforcement As Unequal Protection, Deborah Tuerkheimer

Boston College Law Review

Rape law is largely underenforced. Yet criticism of policing practices has myopically focused on enforcement excesses, thus overlooking the problem of the state withholding protective resources. This neglect is particularly troubling where sexual violence is at issue. Empirical evidence demonstrates the operation of pervasive biases in police officers’ decisions not to pursue an investigation. Over time, law enforcement officers have discriminated against rape victims with immunity. Recently, however, this has changed. This Article is the first to describe a new effort by the United States Department of Justice to hold law enforcement officers accountable for failing to protect victims of ...

Lies, Damn Lies, And Batson Challenges: The Right To Use Statistical Evidence To Prove Racial Bias, Graham R. Cronogue 2016 University of Miami Law School

Lies, Damn Lies, And Batson Challenges: The Right To Use Statistical Evidence To Prove Racial Bias, Graham R. Cronogue

University of Miami Race & Social Justice Law Review

This Article provides two principal contributions to the study of wrongful convictions. First, it fills a gap in the literature by clarifying the scope of a capital defendant’s constitutional right to use statistics when attacking a wrongful conviction caused by racial bias in jury selection. In doing so, the Article not only examines the content of the Court’s jurisprudence but it also explores the historical “arc” toward greater evidentiary protections. This arc has been guided primarily by the realization that prior narrower solutions have been ineffective at combating racially-motivated peremptory strikes. The Article will also place modern statistical ...
