Perpetuating Ageism Via Adoption Standards And Practices, Sara Mills 2010 Marquette University

Perpetuating Ageism Via Adoption Standards And Practices, Sara Mills

Sara C Mills

More than a quarter of Americans consider adoption at some point in their lives. During the adoption process, courts strive to promote and foster the children’s best interests, but this often involves discriminatory decisions that deprive older adoptive parents of the same opportunities as younger adoptive parents. Discrimination in adoption proceedings is nothing new, and legislators, courts, and scholars have explored how it impacts minorities, same-sex couples, single parents, and divorcees. However, age discrimination in adoption also exists, and courts condone it by approving placements that are dictated by private agencies’ discriminatory ideologies. This article thus provides the first ...

Protecting Innovation In Computer Software, Biotechnology, And Nanotechnology, Dennis Karjala 2010 Arizona State University

Protecting Innovation In Computer Software, Biotechnology, And Nanotechnology, Dennis Karjala

Dennis S Karjala

In the 1970’s, paying virtually no attention to the fundamental distinction between patent and copyright subject matter, Congress decided to protect computer programs as a “literary work” under copyright law. As a result, a work of technology for the first time was consciously placed under the protective umbrella of a statute designed for art, music, and literature. While the vulnerability of computer program code to cheap and easy verbatim copying supplied a policy basis for “anti-copy” protection of code, courts often analogized these congressionally anointed “literary works” to broadly protected novels and plays rather than thinly protected technical specifications ...

The Case For Candor - Application Of The Self-Critical Analysis Privilege To Corporate Diversity Documents, Pam Jenoff 2010 Rutgers University School of Law -Camden

The Case For Candor - Application Of The Self-Critical Analysis Privilege To Corporate Diversity Documents, Pam Jenoff

Pam Jenoff

The Case For Candor: Application Of The Self-Critical Analysis Privilege To Corporate Diversity Initiatives Pam Jenoff Diversity has become an increasingly important part of American corporate culture in the past several decades, with companies devoting significant resources to the assessment of diversity and the implementation of plans to improve demographics, employee relations and morale. Attempts to undertake these diversity initiatives are greatly limited, however, by concerns over potential legal liability. Counsel, apprehensive that documents and other information regarding diversity issues and corrective measures may subsequently be used as evidence by plaintiffs in discrimination lawsuits, often discourage or veto outright the ...

Comparative Deterrence From Private Enforcement And Criminal Enforcement Of The U.S. Antitrust Laws, Robert H. Lande 2010 University of Baltimore School of Law

Comparative Deterrence From Private Enforcement And Criminal Enforcement Of The U.S. Antitrust Laws, Robert H. Lande

Robert H. Lande

This article shows that private enforcement of the U. S. antitrust laws-which usually is derided as essentially worthless-serves as a more important deterrent of anticompetitive behavior than the most esteemed antitrust program in the world, criminal enforcement by the Antitrust Division of the U.S. Department of Justice. The debate over the value of private antitrust enforcement long has been heavy with self-serving assertions by powerful economic interests, but light on factual evidence. To help fill this void we have been conducting research for several years on a variety of empirical topics. This article develops and then explores the implications ...

Background Principles, Takings, And Libertarian Property: A Response To Professor Huffman, Michael C. Blumm, J.B. Ruhl 2010 Florida State University

Background Principles, Takings, And Libertarian Property: A Response To Professor Huffman, Michael C. Blumm, J.B. Ruhl

Michael Blumm

One of the principal, if unexpected, results of the Supreme Court's 1992 decision in Lucas v. South Carolina Coastal Commission is the rise of background principles of property and nuisance law as a categorical defense to takings claims. Our writings on the background principles defense have provoked Professor Huffman, a devoted advocate for an expanded use of regulatory takings to protect landowner development rights, to mistakenly charge us with arguing for the use of common law principles to circumvent the rule of law, Supreme Court intent, and the takings clause. Actually, ours was not a normative brief at all ...

Exposing The Underground Establishment Clause In The Supreme Court’S Abortion Cases, Justin S. Murray 2010 Georgetown University

Exposing The Underground Establishment Clause In The Supreme Court’S Abortion Cases, Justin S. Murray

Justin S Murray

In Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court held that women have a right to abortion under the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. The Court reasoned toward this conclusion by importing concepts and concerns that are ordinarily associated with the Establishment Clause. This Article is the first attempt to systematically describe, and critically evaluate, the Court’s use of Establishment-Clause ideas in Roe and later abortion cases.

Some brief background is essential in order to see how the Court wove Establishment-Clause themes into the structure of its Due-Process analysis. The Due Process Clause allows the government to restrict fundamental ...

Avaliar, Sim; Mas Devagar, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

Quem guarda os guardas ? podem colegas julgar colegas, com imparcialidade ? Podem directores julgar omniscientemente todos os que o não são, só por o serem ? Podem estudantes, parte interessada, julgar com competência e justiça (em inquéritos nem sempre objectivos, a que podem responder tanto assíduos como faltosos, os de 0 como os de 20)? E podem os professores, se assim avaliados, deixar de passar a lisonjear os poderes e a tentar seduzir os alunos ?
