Public Resource Ownership And Community Engagement In A Modern Energy Landscape, Samantha Hepburn 2017 Centre for Energy and Natural Resources Law, Deakin Law School, Australia

Public Resource Ownership And Community Engagement In A Modern Energy Landscape, Samantha Hepburn

Pace Environmental Law Review

The onshore resource conflicts that have erupted in the Eastern states of Australia highlight the deep need for axiomatic structural change in public resource ownership frameworks. Much of the conflict that has arisen stems from the failure of the state, as owner, to give proper regard to the social and environmental concerns relevant to the expansion of onshore resource development. The underlying rationale for vesting resources in the state is to ensure they are managed for the benefit of the community as a whole. The implied sumption is that public benefit obligations are met through state administration because this is ...


Denying Disgorgement: The Supreme Court’S Refusal To Grant The Crow Tribe Relief, Alex Galliani 2017 Boston College Law School

Denying Disgorgement: The Supreme Court’S Refusal To Grant The Crow Tribe Relief, Alex Galliani

Boston College Environmental Affairs Law Review

In Montana v. Crow Tribe of Indians, the United States Supreme Court declined to award the Crow Tribe of Indians disgorgement of coal taxes collected by Montana from a mining company with operations on the Tribe’s reservation. The Supreme Court justified its decision by distinguishing the 1939 Montana Supreme Court case Valley County v. Thomas, referencing the precedent set by Cotton Petroleum Corp. v. New Mexico, and noting that the Tribe lacked the necessary approval to tax from the Department of the Interior. This Comment argues that the Supreme Court should have granted the Tribe full disgorgement, partial disgorgement ...


Sound And Fury, Signifying Nothing: Why Shareholder Suits Are Ineffective To Promote Corporate Response To Climate Change, Eric J. Risley Jr. 2017 Boston College Law School

Sound And Fury, Signifying Nothing: Why Shareholder Suits Are Ineffective To Promote Corporate Response To Climate Change, Eric J. Risley Jr.

Boston College Environmental Affairs Law Review

Climate change has already impacted the planet in a number of ways. Perhaps most apparent, however, is climate change’s effects on the frequency and intensity of storms, droughts, and other major geologic and weather-related events. Such catastrophic events have also lead to significant loses by individuals and businesses alike. In particular, many corporations in areas most vulnerable to these sorts of catastrophes must adjust their corporate strategies to account and to prepare for the possibility of significant losses of property or business resulting from the effects of climate change. Some corporate boards, however, might be reluctant to take every ...

Won’T Get Fooled Again: Why Vw’S Emissions Deception Is Illegal In Europe And How To Improve The Eu’S Auto Regulatory System, Kevin Tarsa 2017 Boston College Law School

Won’T Get Fooled Again: Why Vw’S Emissions Deception Is Illegal In Europe And How To Improve The Eu’S Auto Regulatory System, Kevin Tarsa

Boston College International and Comparative Law Review

Replete with greed, hubris, and deceit, the Volkswagen emissions scandal is not your typical case of corporate wrongdoing. With a price tag of $20 million in the United States, it is already one of the most expensive corporate scandals in history and has caused significant damage to the environment, public health, and the global economy. Dieselgate has had a majorly disproportionate impact on Europe, where nearly nine million of the eleven million affected cars are located. The financial cost of the scandal, however, has been confined almost entirely to the United States, due to a European Union (EU) regulation that ...


Back To Its Roots: How §1983 Must Return To Its Origins To Provide A Remedy For The Inupiat Against Oil Drilling In Alaska's Arctic Circle, Julia Prochazka 2017 Northwestern University School of Law

Back To Its Roots: How §1983 Must Return To Its Origins To Provide A Remedy For The Inupiat Against Oil Drilling In Alaska's Arctic Circle, Julia Prochazka

Northwestern Journal of Law & Social Policy

As demand for oil and gas grows, companies are looking to the Chukchi Sea in Alaska as a potential source of oil and wealth. However, the land along the Chukchi Sea is also home to the Native Alaskan community of the Inupiat. Drilling comes in direct conflict with the way of the life of the Inupiat. Considering this conflict, this Comment explores the difficulty of a §1983 claim for the Inupiat. The failure of §1983 to provide a remedy for the Inupiat provides a frame through which to view how §1983 has deviated from its plain language and original purpose.

What’S Shakin’? Ladra V. New Dominion, Llc: A Case Of Consequence For The Hydraulic Fracturing Industry And Those Affected By Induced Seismicity, James Patrick Logan

Pace Environmental Law Review

This analysis is accompanied by a study of a 2015 ruling of the Supreme Court of Oklahoma, Ladra v. New Dominion, LLC. The case considered the possibility of a private tort action by homeowners against the operators of injection wells proceeding within the state’s judicial system, rather than simply being subject to review by a state regulatory agency. The court ultimately decided that the case would be allowed to continue within the judicial system instead of in front of a regulatory agency. This case, while not providing a “silver bullet” precedent with which future claimants can automatically win their ...

Hawkes Co. V. United States Army Corps Of Engineers, Sarah M. Danno 2017 University of Montana School of Law

Hawkes Co. V. United States Army Corps Of Engineers, Sarah M. Danno

Public Land and Resources Law Review

A peat mining company will not be required to obtain a permit under the Clean Water Act to discharge dredged and fill material into wetlands. The United States District Court for the District of Minnesota held that the United States Army Corps of Engineers fell short in its attempts to establish jurisdiction over the wetlands by twice failing to show a significant nexus existed between the wetlands and navigable waters. Further, the district court enjoined the Corps from asserting jurisdiction a third time because it would force the mining company through a “never ending loop” of administrative law.
