Nonuse And Easements: Creating A Pliability Regime Of Private Eminent Domain, Sally Richardson 2009 United States Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals

Nonuse And Easements: Creating A Pliability Regime Of Private Eminent Domain, Sally Richardson

Sally Brown Richardson

Nonuse and Easements: Creating a Pliability Regime of Private Eminent Domain analyzes nonused easements based on the entitlement-protections of property standards and liability rules created by Guido Calabresi and Douglas Melamed in their landmark work, Property Rules, Liability Rules, and Inalienability: One View of the Cathedral. The article takes a comparative approach in its evaluation by studying both the common law and civil law rules pertaining to nonused easements. The common law applies a classic property standard that protects the holder of the easement from the nonconsensual termination of his easement regardless of whether the easement is ever used; the ...


Ad Law Incarcerated, Giovanna Shay 2009 Western New England University School of Law

Ad Law Incarcerated, Giovanna Shay

Giovanna Shay

Prison and jail regulation is the administrative law of mass incarceration. Although the United States imprisons more people than any other nation, our corrections policies are a legal “no man’s land.” Scholars ignore them. Courts defer to them. States routinely exempt them from their administrative procedure act requirements. This Article focuses on the largely unexamined area of corrections regulation and makes the case for subjecting corrections policies to notice-and-comment rulemaking, or according them less deference. Corrections rules became increasingly important when the first wave of prison reform efforts produced bureaucratization of prison systems in the 1970s and early 1980s ...

Interdisciplinary Research: A Case Study Of Integrating Policy Instruments And Legislations To Address Environmental Changes In Cameroon, Amin Forji, Edinam Glover 2009 University of Helsinki

Interdisciplinary Research: A Case Study Of Integrating Policy Instruments And Legislations To Address Environmental Changes In Cameroon, Amin Forji, Edinam Glover

Dr. Edinam K. Glover

Integrating policy instruments and legislations to address environmental changes into ongoing development activities has emerged as a major response by international agencies and national governments seeking to promote good environmental and natural resource management. However, the effects of the many causes of environmental changes are worsening and many aspects of what is happening in these ecosystems evade us. Deforestation has for a long time been an acceptable way of life in the Cameroon’s affluent tropical rainforest, which in fact occupies the second largest land mass in the Congo Basin. Just between 1999 and 2005, Cameroon lost an average of ...


The Death Of Miranda V. Arizona, Patrick Noonan 2009 University of Massachusetts School of Law at Dartmouth

The Death Of Miranda V. Arizona, Patrick Noonan

Patrick J. Noonan

On June 1, 2010, the United States Supreme Court made a watershed decision, turning its decision in Miranda v. Arizona “upside down.” In the case of Berghuis v. Thompkins, the court ruled 5 to 4 that a Michigan defendant who incriminated himself in a fatal shooting after nearly three hours of questioning gave up his right to silence, and the statement could be used against him.

This paper discusses the history and lead-up to the Supreme Court's decision in Miranda v. Arizona, the aftermath and reaction to the Supreme Court's decision in Miranda v. Arizona, the Supreme Court ...

Estimating The Economic Impact Of Mass Digitization Projects On Copyright Holders: Evidence From The Google Book Search Litigation, 2009 Selected Works

Estimating The Economic Impact Of Mass Digitization Projects On Copyright Holders: Evidence From The Google Book Search Litigation

Hannibal Travis

Google Book Search (GBS) has captured the attention of many commentators and government officials, but even as they vigorously debate its legality, few of them have marshaled new facts to determine its likely effects on publishing and other information markets. This Article challenges the conventional wisdom propounded by the U.S. and German governments, as well as Microsoft and other competitors of Google, concerning the likely economic impact of mass book-digitization projects. Originally advanced by publishing industry lobbying groups, the prevailing account of mass book-digitization projects is that they will devastate authors and publishers, just as Napster and its heirs ...


A Lockean Defense Of The Political Question Doctrine's Application In War Powers Cases, Matthew Cochran 2009 Selected Works

A Lockean Defense Of The Political Question Doctrine's Application In War Powers Cases, Matthew Cochran

Matthew Jordan Cochran

This article provides a social contract explanation of and justification for the political question doctrine's application in war powers disputes. Natural legal principles demonstrate that even if the doctrine stands on unsure footing in some respects, it properly renders non-justiciable any supposed conflict between Congress and the President. As a detailed look into John Locke's work reveals, the intervening of a judiciary power into war decisions robs a government of the touchstone of its legitimacy.


The Antidiscrimination Paradox: Why Sex Before Race?, Kimberly Yuracko 2009 Northwestern University School of Law

The Antidiscrimination Paradox: Why Sex Before Race?, Kimberly Yuracko

Kimberly Yuracko

This paper seeks to explain a paradox: Why does Title VII’s prohibition on sex discrimination currently look so much more expansive than its prohibition on race discrimination? Why in particular, do workers appear to be receiving greater protection for expressions of gender identity than for expressions of racial identity? I argue that as a doctrinal matter, the paradox is illusory—the product of a fundamental misinterpretation of recent sex discrimination case law by scholars. Rather than reflecting fundamentally distinct antidiscrimination principles, the race and sex cases in fact reflect the same traditional commitments to ending status discrimination and undermining ...

The Role Of Victims In The First Trial Of The International Criminal Court, Aldo Zammit Borda 2009 Trinity College Dublin

The Role Of Victims In The First Trial Of The International Criminal Court, Aldo Zammit Borda

Aldo Zammit Borda

The Rome Statute (RS) of the International Criminal Court (ICC) is a milestone for the role it accords to victims in international criminal proceedings. The provisions on victims’ participation in the RS system have been applied for the first time in the case of Mr Thomas Lubanga Dylio. This paper takes the view that a number of significant interlocutory pronouncements on victims’ participation have already been made by the ICC Pre-Trial, Trial and Appeals Chambers which, as such, deserve further analysis. The paper will firstly provide a brief overview of developments with regard to victims’ participation in the area of ...

A Closer Look: A Symposium Among Legal Historians And Law Librarians To Uncover The Spanish Roots Of Louisiana Civil Law, Vicenç Feliú, Dennis Kim-Prieto, Teresa Miguel 2009 Villanova University School of Law

A Closer Look: A Symposium Among Legal Historians And Law Librarians To Uncover The Spanish Roots Of Louisiana Civil Law, Vicenç Feliú, Dennis Kim-Prieto, Teresa Miguel

Vicenç Feliú

The debate regarding whether the origin of Louisiana civil law is based in the Spanish or in the French legal tradition has been ongoing since that state’s incorporation into the United States as a result of the Louisiana Purchase. Distinguished legal scholars have argued in favor of one tradition being dominant over the other, and each has been staunch in support of that view. This article proposes and demonstrates that the Spanish, not French, civil law had an enormous influence on the creation and evolution of Louisiana civil law, and that this legacy resonates today.

The article begins with ...
