Access To Justice And Corporate Accountability: A Legal Case Study Of Hudbay In Guatemala, Shin Imai, Bernadette Maheandiran, Valerie Crystal 2016 Osgoode Hall Law School of York University

Access To Justice And Corporate Accountability: A Legal Case Study Of Hudbay In Guatemala, Shin Imai, Bernadette Maheandiran, Valerie Crystal

Shin Imai

This case study looks at the avenues open for addressing serious allegations of murder, rape and assault brought by indigenous Guatemalans against a Canadian mining company, HudBay Minerals. While first-generation legal and development policy reforms have facilitated foreign mining in Guatemala, second-generation reforms have failed to address effectively conflicts arising from the development projects. The judicial mechanisms available in Guatemala are difficult to access and suffer from problems of corruption and intimidation. Relevant corporate social responsibility policies and mechanisms lack the necessary enforcement powers. Canadian courts have been reluctant to permit lawsuits against Canadian parent companies; however, in Choc v ...

A Fractured Standard: How The Fourth Circuit Granted Expansive Implied Property Rights To Mineral Owners, Davis Truslow 2016 Boston College Law School

A Fractured Standard: How The Fourth Circuit Granted Expansive Implied Property Rights To Mineral Owners, Davis Truslow

Boston College Environmental Affairs Law Review

Extraction of natural gas through hydraulic fracturing poses a significant risk of harm to human health and the environment. West Virginia, like many states that lie above vast oil and gas resources, grants expansive implied property rights to owners of subsurface mineral estates. In Whiteman v. Chesapeake, L.L.C., the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit held that a hydraulic fracturing company’s construction and use of drilling waste pits on the surface of another’s property did not constitute a trespass under West Virginia common law because it was reasonably necessary for the recovery of ...


Mixing Oil And Water: The Role Of Natural Resource Wealth In The Resolution Of The Maritime Boundary Dispute Between Ghana And Côte D’Ivoire, Natalie Cappellazzo 2016 Boston College Law School

Mixing Oil And Water: The Role Of Natural Resource Wealth In The Resolution Of The Maritime Boundary Dispute Between Ghana And Côte D’Ivoire, Natalie Cappellazzo

Boston College International and Comparative Law Review

The West African nations of Ghana and Côte D’Ivoire are deeply entrenched in a legal battle over where in the Atlantic Ocean to draw the maritime boundary between them. Further complicating the conflict is the presence of significant quantities of offshore petroleum in the disputed area. In an interim order issued on April 25, 2015, a Special Chamber of the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea ruled that Ghana may proceed with existing oil-related activity but must take all steps necessary to prevent new drilling, ensure that no information derived from oil exploration be used to the ...

Protection Of The Marine Environment Under International Law And Kuwaiti Criminal Law, Yousef H. Almutairi

Dissertations & Theses

The marine environment has unique characteristics that distinguish it from other elements of nature. Since seas and oceans cover more than two-thirds of the earth, they play a vital role in achieving biological and climatic balance on the planet. The marine environment also plays an important role in human life, since it has plenty of nutritious and industrial resources that directly affect human welfare. It also contains huge amounts of oil and natural gas, which has played a role in the economic prosperity of the world. Moreover, seas are considered a source of freshwater through resorting to desalination of seawater ...

No Fracknation Without Representation: Stripping Away A City’S Right To Regulate The Stripping Away Of Its Natural Resources In State Ex Rel. Morrison V. Beck Energy Corp., Derek Rocha 2016 Boston College Law School

No Fracknation Without Representation: Stripping Away A City’S Right To Regulate The Stripping Away Of Its Natural Resources In State Ex Rel. Morrison V. Beck Energy Corp., Derek Rocha

Boston College Journal of Law & Social Justice

In 2011, the city of Munroe Falls, Ohio sought to prevent Beck Energy Corporation from drilling for gas or oil within its city limits until the company complied with the city’s relevant municipal ordinances. Pursuant cases sought to resolve whether Munroe Falls’ municipal ordinances were a valid exercise of the city’s home-rule power. The Ohio Supreme Court determined that the local ordinances conflicted with state law, which regulated oil and gas production within Ohio. The court held that the state law preempted the local ordinances as they sought to regulate oil and gas production in a similar manner ...
