The Emergence Of Wearable Technology And The Legal Implications For Athletes, Teams, Leagues And Other Sports Organizations Across Amateur And Professional Athletics, Anthony Studnicka 2020 DePaul University

The Emergence Of Wearable Technology And The Legal Implications For Athletes, Teams, Leagues And Other Sports Organizations Across Amateur And Professional Athletics, Anthony Studnicka

DePaul Journal of Sports Law

The year was 1998. The Chicago Bulls were playing in Game 6 of the NBA Finals against the Utah Jazz. Michael Jordan was wearing his iconic, bright, red number 23 Bulls jersey. Jordan had led the Bulls to their third consecutive finals appearance, pursuing their sixth NBA Championship title of the decade. However, this was not his fight alone, as his teammates were fighting merely to get on the court. Ron Harper was playing while sick, and Toni Kukoc was battling fatigue. Another teammate and future Hall of Famer Scottie Pippen was playing through an injury. The extent of the ...


Convergence And Divergence In Stadium Ownership Structures, Robert Sroka 2020 DePaul University

Convergence And Divergence In Stadium Ownership Structures, Robert Sroka

DePaul Journal of Sports Law

In the broader business law literature, much has been written on the supposed convergence trend of corporate governance practices. Yet this academic discussion has barely extended to the professional sports context and in the instances where professional sports governance has been at issue, stadiums and stadium ownership have not been the subject of analysis. With stadium construction and renovation projects regularly running into the hundreds of millions or billions of dollars, and ongoing stadium operations and debt repayments on such facilities often exceeding tens of millions each year, stadium governance is a significant aspect of business and corporate governance worth ...

The Larry Nassar Nightmare: Athletic Organizational Failures To Address Sexual Assault Allegations And A Call For Corrective Action, Heather Udowitch 2020 DePaul University

The Larry Nassar Nightmare: Athletic Organizational Failures To Address Sexual Assault Allegations And A Call For Corrective Action, Heather Udowitch

DePaul Journal of Sports Law

Lawrence (Larry) Nassar, a once credible, respected physician – who treated thousands of premiere athletes – is now known as a one of the most infamous individuals in American sports history. While building his professorial career as a doctor with USA Gymnastics (USAG), Michigan State University (MSU), and the United States Olympic Committee (USOC), Nassar was actually sexually assaulting hundreds of individuals under the guise of medical treatment. USAG, MSU, and the USOC all contributed to the flawed system that refused to listen to the athletes who reported Nassar in addition to help him maintain his status. Through the silence of numerous ...


The Importance Of Ncaa Student-Athletes' Financial Literacy And Mental Health In Anticipation Of The Historic Fair Pay To Play Act, R.J. Curington 2020 DePaul University

The Importance Of Ncaa Student-Athletes' Financial Literacy And Mental Health In Anticipation Of The Historic Fair Pay To Play Act, R.J. Curington

DePaul Journal of Sports Law

Sports fans praise athletic abilities and sensational games, especially during championship play. However, extreme criticism and judgment arises when athletes fall into financial and/or mental pitfalls after college. We all have heard horror stories of student-athletes being exploited by outside influences that result in suspensions to the student-athlete and even penalties on their athletic program. The exploitation of the nation’s top student-athletes can even begin in the early stages of high-school. These young student-athletes, who may not have the financial resources or the proper guidance, are often misled by self-interested outside sources. Dreams of financial stability are thought ...

Addressing Human Trafficking In The Context Of Major League Baseball And The Cuban Baseball Federation, Sarah Hanlon 2020 DePaul University

Addressing Human Trafficking In The Context Of Major League Baseball And The Cuban Baseball Federation, Sarah Hanlon

DePaul Journal of Sports Law

In 2018, Major League Baseball (“MLB”) and the Cuban Baseball Federation (Federación Cubana de Béisbol, “FCB”) reached a historic agreement. The agreement sought to protect Cuban baseball players wishing to play in the United States. Under the agreement, Cuban players would no longer have to denounce their allegiance to Cuba or find alternative and often risky and dangerous ways to enter the United States. The agreement was symbolic of an easing of tensions between the United States and Cuba. Unfortunately, the agreement was short-lived after the Trump administration began reinvigorating stricter policies from the past with Cuba. This Note reviews ...

Symposium: Pandemics And The Constitution: Federalism And Contagion: Reevaluating The Role Of The Cdc, Kyle J. Connors 2020 The University of Akron

Symposium: Pandemics And The Constitution: Federalism And Contagion: Reevaluating The Role Of The Cdc, Kyle J. Connors

ConLawNOW

The United States Government’s response to the coronavirus outbreak raises difficult questions of federalism. This essay argues for greater federal leadership and involvement to mount the most effective response to a pandemic. As history shows, a response led by local governments is vulnerable to collective action problems and political impediments. An improved response structure in a contagious disease event would include more federal leadership and policy dictated by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), to be then effectuated by state and local governments. This power can be exercised either formally, through federal grants, or informally through the influence of ...


Symposium: Pandemics And The Constitution: Pandemic Surveillance - The New Predictive Policing, Michael Gentithes, Harold J. Krent 2020 The University of Akron

Symposium: Pandemics And The Constitution: Pandemic Surveillance - The New Predictive Policing, Michael Gentithes, Harold J. Krent

ConLawNOW

As the fight against the coronavirus pandemic continues, state governments are considering more invasive surveillance to determine who has been exposed to the virus and who is most likely to catch the virus in the future. Widespread efforts to test temperatures have been initiated; calls for contact tracing have increased; and plans have been revealed to allow only those testing positive for the virus’s antibodies (who presumably now are immune) to return to work and travel. Such fundamental liberties may now hinge on the mere probabilities that one may catch the disease or be immune from it.

To assess ...


Those Who Stay - U.S. Immigration Policies And The Impact Of Migration On The Communities Of Oaxaca, Mexico, Aliah McCord 2020 University of Puget Sound

Those Who Stay - U.S. Immigration Policies And The Impact Of Migration On The Communities Of Oaxaca, Mexico, Aliah Mccord

Honors Program Theses

Immigration is one of the most divisive topics in the United States. One aspect of this complicated theme is economic migration. This migration is different from asylum/refugee status or other forms of protected relief. The people who are migrating are not facing imminent threats of political violence or other types of violence, but are living in conditions of poverty. Their livelihoods depend on migration, and money earned in the United States that is sent back to their communities.

The first part of this paper will focus on people who migrate for this economic-based reason, specifically examining two communities in ...


Risky Business: Holding Hotels Accountable For Sex Trafficking, Rachel Rothberg 2020 Yale Law School, J.D. 2019

Risky Business: Holding Hotels Accountable For Sex Trafficking, Rachel Rothberg

Yale Law & Policy Review

The modern-day sex trade is “hidden in plain sight.” Traffickers use and exploit legitimate businesses to engage in and conceal their illegal practices. From nightclubs to travel agencies, massage parlors to car dealerships, a wide variety of industries fail to scrutinize suspicious activity or take adequate precautions, while the most egregious actors actively solicit and benefit from “lucrative” partnerships.


The Public Values Of Repatriation In The Native American Graves Protection And Repatriation Act, Alexandra Eynon 2020 Yale Law School, J.D. 2019

The Public Values Of Repatriation In The Native American Graves Protection And Repatriation Act, Alexandra Eynon

Yale Law & Policy Review

This Note examines the implementation of the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act and finds that repatriation has generated significant public benefits by making collecting institutions better fulfill their role as stewards and researchers. This is contrary to existing critiques of cultural property laws that argue that repatriation is a compromise by the public to benefit minoritarian groups. This Note argues instead that stronger repatriation laws may be better for all of us.


Broken Experimentation, Sham Evidence-Based Policy, Kristen Underhill 2020 Associate Professor of Law, Columbia Law School

Broken Experimentation, Sham Evidence-Based Policy, Kristen Underhill

Yale Law & Policy Review

Evidence-based policy is gaining attention, and legislation and agency regulation have been no exception to calls for greater uptake of research evidence. Indeed, current interest in “moneyball for government” is part of a long history of efforts to promote research-based decisions in government, from the U.S. Census to cost-benefit analysis. But although evidence-based policy-making (EBPM) is often both feasible and desirable, there are reasons to be skeptical of the capacity of EBPM in governmental decision-making. EBPM is itself bounded by limits on rationality, the capacity of science, the objectivity of science, and the authority we wish to give technocrats ...


Return On Data: Personalizing Consumer Guidance In Data Exchanges, Noam Kolt 2020 Associate, Yigal Arnon & Co.

Return On Data: Personalizing Consumer Guidance In Data Exchanges, Noam Kolt

Yale Law & Policy Review

Consumers routinely supply personal data to technology companies in exchange for services. Yet, the relationship between the utility (U) consumers gain and the data (D) they supply — “return on data” (ROD) — remains largely unexplored. Expressed as a ratio, ROD = U / D. While lawmakers strongly advocate protecting consumer privacy, they tend to overlook ROD. Are the benefits of the services enjoyed by consumers, such as social networking and predictive search, commensurate with the value of the data extracted from them? How can consumers compare competing data-for-services deals? Currently, the legal frameworks regulating these transactions, including privacy law, aim primarily to protect ...


The Political Economy Of The Opioid Epidemic, Mariano-Florentino Cuéllar, Keith Humphreys 2020 Justice, Supreme Court of California

The Political Economy Of The Opioid Epidemic, Mariano-Florentino Cuéllar, Keith Humphreys

Yale Law & Policy Review

Public health problems have a political economy rooted largely in public and private laws that both reflect the distribution of power in society and shape its policy responses. In this Article, we apply this perspective to the U.S. opioid crisis, which was triggered by a quadrupling of opioid prescribing beginning in the mid-1990s. Such staggering increases in opioid use are impossible to understand without unpacking the incentives and institutional pressures associated with the distribution and use of addictive legal drugs, particularly how those pressures can dilute the substantive goals and efficacy of regulatory governance.


The Right To A Public Trial In The Time Of Covid-19, Stephen E. Smith 2020 Santa Clara University

The Right To A Public Trial In The Time Of Covid-19, Stephen E. Smith

Washington and Lee Law Review Online

Maintaining social distance in the time of COVID-19 is a public health priority. A crowded courtroom is an environment at odds with public health needs. Accordingly, until science determines otherwise, it will be necessary for judges to manage courtroom attendance and exclude the public from trials, wholly or in part. Courtrooms may be closed to the public, despite the Sixth Amendment’s right to a public trial, when the closure is justified by a strong government interest and is narrowly tailored to further that interest. Typically, this heightened scrutiny is applied on a case-by-case basis and turns on a case ...

Paving The Way For Recognizing Postpenetration Rape Through The Mistake Of Fact Defense, Katherine M. King 2020 Boston College Law School

Paving The Way For Recognizing Postpenetration Rape Through The Mistake Of Fact Defense, Katherine M. King

Boston College Law Review

On February 13, 2019, the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court in Commonwealth v. Sherman introduced a communication element in rape cases involving withdrawn consent. The prosecutor must prove that the victim communicated the revocation of consent such that a reasonable defendant would understand its withdrawal. In doing so, the court invoked a mistake of fact defense with regard to consent, which Massachusetts historically did not apply in its rape jurisprudence. This Comment notes that Massachusetts is unique in recognizing postpenetration rape as a legal possibility. This Comment compares Sherman to the Supreme Judicial Court’s decision in 2008 in Commonwealth v ...
