Siting Technology, Land-Use Energized, Steven Ferrey 2017 The Catholic University of America, Columbus School of Law

Siting Technology, Land-Use Energized, Steven Ferrey

Catholic University Law Review

Jurisdiction for the siting of electric power plants is vested in the fifty states, four territories, and thousands of local governments. Further complicating this scheme is federal government’s exclusive authority over certain transactions originating from these facilities. Against this backdrop of often divergent and conflicting laws, this article compiles a multijurisdictional review of the jurisdictional issues surrounding the regulation of electric power. Employing multiple state by state surveys, this paper compares electric power siting laws, the interactions between federal, state, and municipal authorities, and the mechanics of regulatory structures across the United States.


Poverty, The Great Unequalizer: Improving The Delivery System For Civil Legal Aid, Latonia Haney Keith 2017 The Catholic University of America, Columbus School of Law

Poverty, The Great Unequalizer: Improving The Delivery System For Civil Legal Aid, Latonia Haney Keith

Catholic University Law Review

When individuals in the United States face civil justice issues, they are not entitled to legal counsel and therefore must secure paid counsel, proceed pro se or qualify for free legal assistance. As a result of the economic downturn, the number of Americans who are unable to afford legal counsel is now at an all-time high. In response to this ever-widening justice gap, the public interest community has launched multiple initiatives to supplement the underfunded legal aid system. Though valiant, this article argues that this approach has unfortunately created a complex, fragmented and overlapping delivery system for legal aid. This ...


Tears In Heaven: Religiously And Culturally Sensitive Laws For Preventing The Next Pandemic, Eloisa C. Rodriguez-Dod, Aileen Maria Marty, Elena Maria Marty-Nelson 2017 The Catholic University of America, Columbus School of Law

Tears In Heaven: Religiously And Culturally Sensitive Laws For Preventing The Next Pandemic, Eloisa C. Rodriguez-Dod, Aileen Maria Marty, Elena Maria Marty-Nelson

Catholic University Law Review

This Article argues that laws created to curtail the spread of deadly contagious diseases need to be drafted and implemented in ways that maximize acceptance of an affected communities’ cultural and religious beliefs. When laws are put in place that are inconsistent with community mores, the overall goal of stopping an epidemic is threatened. Communities often distrust government and other relief organizations who mandate rules and regulations that impinge their religious and cultural beliefs; thus, these regulations geared at helping communities can paradoxically undermine the goal of preventing the spread of infectious disease.

This Article focuses on the need for ...


A-R-C-G- Is Not The Solution For Domestic Violence Victims, Lizbeth Chow 2017 The Catholic University of America, Columbus School of Law

A-R-C-G- Is Not The Solution For Domestic Violence Victims, Lizbeth Chow

Catholic University Law Review

For over fifteen years, U.S. immigration authorities and courts have grappled with the idea of domestic violence as a basis for asylum. But in 2014, the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) issued a decision indicating that victims of domestic violence may qualify for asylum. This Comment assesses the BIA’s decision and concludes that it is ultimately ineffective. This Comment further suggests that the only practical solution is for Congress to intervene. This Comment first provides a brief historical overview of asylum law to help elucidate the purpose of asylum law. It also provides an in-depth review of the ...


Personal Jurisdiction In Hatch-Waxman Cases, Michael Marusak 2017 The Catholic University of America, Columbus School of Law

Personal Jurisdiction In Hatch-Waxman Cases, Michael Marusak

Catholic University Law Review

The Hatch-Waxman Act drastically altered the way pioneer and generic pharmaceutical manufacturers litigate patent infringement disputes, allowing generic manufacturers to submit an abbreviated new drug application (ANDA) to the FDA, which states that it intends make a chemical equivalent of a patent owner’s drug. When the ANDA is accompanied by a Paragraph IV certification, representing that the generic intends to market the drug before the patent’s expiration because it believes the patent is invalid or will not be infringed by the generic’s drug, the ANDA submission itself creates an “artificial” act of infringement. With the Supreme Court ...


The Potential Effect Of The Department Of Labor’S New Fiduciary Rule On Broker-Dealers And The Middle Income Retirement Investors Who Rely On Them, Nadia Yoon 2017 The Catholic University of America, Columbus School of Law

The Potential Effect Of The Department Of Labor’S New Fiduciary Rule On Broker-Dealers And The Middle Income Retirement Investors Who Rely On Them, Nadia Yoon

Catholic University Law Review

On April 6, 2016, the U.S. Department of Labor issued a final rule aimed at increasing the reach of the definition of fiduciary status under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA). This rule closed a loophole that had allowed broker-dealers to avoid becoming investment advisers under ERISA, allowing them to provide bad advice to their retirement clients without disclosing material conflicts of interest. This note begins by laying out the fiduciary rules and standards under ERISA and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s oversight regime before the final rule. It then lays out the ...

Domicile, Student Voters And The Constitution, John M. Greabe 2017 University of New Hampshire School of Law

Domicile, Student Voters And The Constitution, John M. Greabe

Legal Scholarship

[Excerpt] "The wisdom of using the Electoral College to choose our president is a hot topic. For the second time in 16 years (and the fifth time in our history), the "winner" of the national popular vote lost the presidential election in the Electoral College. To many, this "undemocratic" outcome seems wrong."

Here We Are Now, Entertain Us: Defining The Line Between Personal And Professional Context On Social Media, Raizel Liebler, Keidra Chaney

Keidra Chaney

Social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram allow individuals and companies to connect directly and regularly with an audience of peers or with the public at large. These websites combine the audience-building platforms of mass media with the personal data and relationships of in-person social networks. Due to a combination of evolving user activity and frequent updates to functionality and user features, social media tools blur the line of whether a speaker is perceived as speaking to a specific and presumed private audience, a public expression of one’s own personal views, or a representative viewpoint of an ...
