Stranded Costs And Grid Decarbonization, Emily Hammond, Jim Rossi 2017 George Washington University Law School

Stranded Costs And Grid Decarbonization, Emily Hammond, Jim Rossi

Jim Rossi

Over the past half century, energy law has endured many stranded cost experiments, each helping firms and customers adjust to a new normal. However, these past experiments have contributed to a myopic regulatory approach to past stranded cost recovery by: (1) endorsing a preference for addressing all stranded costs only after energy resource investment decisions have been made; and (2) fixating on the firm’s financial costs and protection of investors, rather than on the broader impacts of each on the energy system.

The current transition to decarbonization is already giving rise to stranded cost claims related to existing energy ...

Revitalizing Dormant Commerce Clause Review For Interstate Coordination, Alexandra B. Klass, Jim Rossi 2017 University of Minnesota Law School

Revitalizing Dormant Commerce Clause Review For Interstate Coordination, Alexandra B. Klass, Jim Rossi

Jim Rossi

Interstate coordination presents one of the most difficult challenges for American federalism as well as for energy markets and policy. Existing laws vest the approval of large-scale energy infrastructure projects such as interstate oil pipelines and high-voltage, interstate electric transmission lines with state and local levels of government. At the same time, state siting and eminent domain regimes routinely enable and even encourage state regulators to hold out from approving interstate infrastructure projects, hobbling any hope for interstate coordination. This Article analyzes how judicial review under dormant Commerce Clause principles and doctrine can promote better interstate coordination by discouraging regulatory ...

Judge Cudahy And The Deference Tension In United States Energy Law, Jim Rossi, Thomas Hutton 2017 Selected Works

Judge Cudahy And The Deference Tension In United States Energy Law, Jim Rossi, Thomas Hutton

Jim Rossi

Among the judges on the U.S. courts of appeals, Judge Richard Cudahy stands out for his experience in and writings on energy law. In this Essay, we argue that Judge Cudahy's energy opinions elaborate on two recurring themes in US. energy law: judicial humility and deference for subnational innovation. At the same time, these themes present a deference tension: where federal regulators disapprove of state regulatory policies, courts may confront a conflict between deferring to federal regulators and encouraging subnational energy policy innovations. We argue that in such cases, Judge Cudahy 's decisions point towards a principle of ...

Assessing The State Of The State Constitutionalism, Jim Rossi 2017 Florida State University College of Law

Assessing The State Of The State Constitutionalism, Jim Rossi

Jim Rossi

Robert Williams's The Law of American State Constitutions is an impressive career accomplishment for one of the leading academic lawyers writing on state constitutions. Given the need for a comprehensive, treatise-like treatment of state constitutions that transcends individual jurisdictions, Williams's book will almost certainly become the go-to treatise for the next generation of state constitutional law practitioners and scholars. The U.S. Constitution has a grip on how the American legal mind approaches issues in American constitutionalism, but an important recurring theme in Williams's work (as well as that of others) is how state constitutions present unique ...


Alj Final Orders On Appeal: Balancing Independence With Accountability, Jim Rossi 2017 Selected Works

Alj Final Orders On Appeal: Balancing Independence With Accountability, Jim Rossi

Jim Rossi

This essay addresses how ALJ final order authority in many state systems of administrative governance (among them Florida, Louisiana, Missouri, and South Carolina) poses a tension between independence and accountability. It is argued that political accountability is sacrificed where reviewing courts defer to ALJ final orders on issues of law and policy. Standards of review provide state courts with a way of restoring the balance between independence and accountability, but reviewing courts should heighten the deference they give to the agency's legal and policy positions -- giving little or no deference to the ALJ on these issues -- even where the ...

A juicio del autor, la disposición normativa incorporada a nuestro CP, prevista en el artículo 52-A, es una expresión de la política penitenciaria, cuyo fin es evitar el hacinamiento en las cárceles de personas que hayan cometido delitos no graves, y que abre la posibilidad de convertir penas privativa de libertad en ejecución de condena en una pena limitativa de derechos, la cual puede ser practicada de oficio o a petición de parte, proscribiendo su procedencia en determinados delitos graves.
