2009 Naep Reading Results, Nathan C. Jensen, Gary W. Ritter

Policy Briefs

The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), also known as “the Nation’s Report Card,” is a national assessment of what students in each state know in various subjects. The grade 4 and 8 mathematics and reading portions of the NAEP were administered in 2009. We highlighted the math results, which were released last fall, in the 2009 Arkansas Report Card (http://www.uark.edu/ua/oep/report_cards/2009_Report Card.pdf). The 2009 reading scores were released at the end of March, 2010. This policy brief highlights the recent NAEP reading results and demonstrates, bluntly, that growth has stagnated both ...

Striving For Greenhouse Gas Mitigation In Pennsylvania : How Law And Biodiesel Can Play A Part, Jon Johnson 2010 Widener University - Harrisburg Campus

Striving For Greenhouse Gas Mitigation In Pennsylvania : How Law And Biodiesel Can Play A Part, Jon Johnson

Jon W Johnson

An analytical review of federal and Pennsylvania law and its possible use to mitigate greenhouse gases through state legislation. Additional review is conducted to determine the feasibility of using biodiesel as a fuel to help reduce GHGs from Diesel powered equipment including heavy weight trucks. Proposed Legislation would require the mandatory implementation of Biodiesel in the Commonwealth at levels much higher than ever will be achieved under current law. Additionally, recommendations to impose strict regulations on manufactures of diesel type equipment to allow such use of high concentration of Biodiesel fuel in equipment without voiding existing or new warranties. Lastly ...

Marriage And Law Reform: Lessons From The Nineteenth Century Michigan Married Women’S Property Acts, Ellen Dannin 2010 Pennsylvania State University - Dickinson School of Law

Marriage And Law Reform: Lessons From The Nineteenth Century Michigan Married Women’S Property Acts, Ellen Dannin

Ellen Dannin

If law reform had the neat trajectory of a bullet from a smoking gun, life and law would be neater – but less interesting. This article began as a simple empirical study to test whether Michigan’s 1844 Married Women’s Property Act affected conveyancing.

When the results showed that it had no effect – that married women were included as grantors even before the MWPA made it legal for them to own property – the study expanded into a quest to identify the processes that led to its enactment and explained its operation on the family, a fundamental social institution. In that ...

The Supreme Appointment: Visionaries Need Not Apply, Charles W. Rhodes 2010 South Texas College of Law

The Supreme Appointment: Visionaries Need Not Apply, Charles W. Rhodes

Charles W Rhodes

The recent announcement of Justice John Paul Stevens that he would retire at the end of the October 2009 Term has instigated the typical media frenzy of shortlists and speculation regarding the identity of the next nominee to the United States Supreme Court. Will President Barack Obama make a bold nomination of a liberal judicial visionary to battle Justices Scalia and Thomas? Will he nominate a political officeholder who will bring a new perspective on the role of the Court? Or will he follow the recent tradition of nominating a sitting federal appellate court judge with a prestigious academic and ...

Does The Supreme Court's Burlington Northern Decision Require Reconsideration Of The Aceto Line Of "Arranger" Liability Cases?, Aaron Gershonowitz 2010 Forchelli, Curto, Crowe, Deegan, Schwartz, Mineo & Coh.

Does The Supreme Court's Burlington Northern Decision Require Reconsideration Of The Aceto Line Of "Arranger" Liability Cases?, Aaron Gershonowitz

Aaron Gershonowitz

The Eighth Circuit’s decision in United States v. Aceto Agricultural Chemicals Corp., 872 F2d 1373 (8th Cir. 1989) represents perhaps the most expansive reading of Superfund "arranger" liability, holding that a corporation can be liable even though the corporation never possessed the waste and made no decisions regarding disposal. The Aceto theory of liability has been followed by several other federal circuit courts of appeals. In Burlington Northern and Santa Fe Railroad Co. v. United States, 129 S. Ct. 1870 (2009) the Supreme Court addressed whether a seller of chemicals could be held liable as an "arranger" when chemicals ...


Comparative Efficiency In International Sales Law, Larry A. DiMatteo, Daniel T. Ostas 2010 University of Florida

Comparative Efficiency In International Sales Law, Larry A. Dimatteo, Daniel T. Ostas

Larry A DiMatteo

The article employs the method of the economic analysis of law (EAL) in a comparative context. In particular, it assesses the efficiency of select provisions of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG). The CISG is the law of the United States and over 70 other countries. It reflects a culmination of a century-old process of failed attempts to achieve an international sales law. The drafting process involved intense negotiation and compromise between representatives of the common and civil law legal traditions. As a result, the CISG provides in an interesting amalgam of civil ...

Heterosexuality And Military Service, Zachary A. Kramer 2010 Northwestern Pritzker School of Law

Heterosexuality And Military Service, Zachary A. Kramer

NULR Online

The Kentucky National Guard’s 940th Military Police Company is based in Walton, Kentucky, just south of the Kentucky-Ohio border. In November 2004, in anticipation of its deployment to Iraq, the 940th was mobilized and stationed at Fort Dix, New Jersey. Love was in the air at Fort Dix that fall. While the 940th was preparing for its year of service in Iraq, five couples in the unit got married. Amanda and Todd McCormick were one of those couples. The McCormicks spent their first year of marriage in an active war zone, where their duties included training the Iraqi police ...


Protection Of Environmentally Displaced Populations Through Strengthening Existing Environmental Human Rights Law, Jessica Scott 2010 Vermont Law School

Protection Of Environmentally Displaced Populations Through Strengthening Existing Environmental Human Rights Law, Jessica Scott

Jessica Scott

A United Nations group has declared that there are currently 20 million environmental “refugees,” more people than are currently displaced because of war. The numbers of these environmentally displaced persons (EDPs) will likely increase as a result of global climate change. However they are currently unprotected under international law addressing refugees. In this article, I propose a new solution to this problem: environmental human rights law.

While some have argued for expanding the UN definition of “refugee” to cover EDPs or for a new instrument to protect the environmentally displaced specifically, my research and work experience with international refugee law ...

Digitizing The World's Laws, Claire M. Germain

Cornell Law Faculty Working Papers

Where does one find the foreign investment laws of Botswana? What about the copyright law of the Netherlands, the corporation laws of Japan, or the English translation of the Egyptian Civil Code? Already back in 1991, just before the internet, Wallace Baker remarked that “foreign law has become the daily bread of lawyers everywhere who formally had totally domestic practices.” Since then, the need to access the content of foreign law has increased exponentially. The importance of global access to foreign laws on the internet and how to improve it was recently highlighted at an international Meeting of Experts on ...
