Refractory Pain, Existential Suffering, And Palliative Care: Releasing An Unbearable Lightness Of Being, George P. Smith 2010 The Catholic University of America, Columbus School of Law

Refractory Pain, Existential Suffering, And Palliative Care: Releasing An Unbearable Lightness Of Being, George P. Smith

George P Smith

Abstract

Since the beginning of the hospice movement in 1967, “total pain management” has been the declared goal of hospice care. Palliating the whole person’s physical, psycho-social, and spiritual states or conditions are central to managing pain which induces suffering. At the end-stage of life, an inextricable component of an ethics of adjusted care requires recognition of a fundamental right to avoid cruel and unusual suffering from terminal illness. This Article urges wider consideration and use of terminal sedation, or sedation until death, as efficacious palliative treatment and as a reasonable medical procedure in order to safeguard a “right ...

History, Strategy And True Believers: Combining Rational Choice Theory And Social Movement Theory To Explain The Effectiveness Of Social Movements, JoAnne Sweeny 2010 Loyola University New Orleans

History, Strategy And True Believers: Combining Rational Choice Theory And Social Movement Theory To Explain The Effectiveness Of Social Movements, Joanne Sweeny

JoAnne Sweeny

Both Rational Choice Theory and Social Movement Theory attempt to explain how public interest groups can influence political actors to enact progressive legislation or case law. Yet neither of these theories present a clear picture of what must be present for a social movement to succeed nor what must be absent for it to fail. For example, the bill of rights movement in the United Kingdom resulted in the Human Rights Act 1998 while the United States’ gay rights movement, which began to gain momentum around the same time, has had much more inconsistent success. This article addresses this problem ...

Defragmenting The Regulatory Process, Stuart Shapiro 2010 Rutgers University

Defragmenting The Regulatory Process, Stuart Shapiro

Stuart Shapiro

The regulatory process is often criticized for being cumbersome and slow, much like a computer whose hard drive is fragmented by files no longer used or useful. Like such a computer, the regulatory process contains many requirement of dubious utility. These include the Paperwork Reduction Act, the Regulatory Flexibility Act, the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act, and numerous executive orders. While other parts of the regulatory process such as notice and comment and cost-benefit analysis have received much more academic attention, these other parts of the process deserve examination as well. This paper argues that such an examination will reveal that ...

Freeway Porn & The Signs Of Sign: Sex, Cigarettes And Censorship Of Billboards, Clay Calvert 2010 University of Florida

Freeway Porn & The Signs Of Sign: Sex, Cigarettes And Censorship Of Billboards, Clay Calvert

Loyola of Los Angeles Entertainment Law Review

This article examines First Amendment issues raised by legislative efforts to regulate billboards that advertise adult-oriented enterprises and goods-namely, sexually oriented businesses (SOBs) and tobacco. As SOBs proliferate along highways in rural America, states are attempting to stop the only viable form of advertising SOBs have to attract the attention of passing motorists and truckers- highway-adjacent billboards. These "signs of sin" are the objects of censorship, even when they appear in text-only format. Likewise, in June 2009, President Obama signed into a new law giving the Secretary of Health and Human Services the power to create regulations targeting billboards that ...

The advent of handheld Internet-capable devices such as iPhones and Blackberries has enabled information to be quickly found at our fingertips. However, this instantaneous Internet access has created some dire consequences for the American legal system, as mistrials across the nation are being declared due to juror misconduct via online activity.

The Rental Epidemic Of The Twenty-First Century: A Look At How Netflix And Redbox Are Damaging The Hollywood Film Industry And How To Stop It, Ryan Sullivan 2010 Loyola Law School Los Angeles

The Rental Epidemic Of The Twenty-First Century: A Look At How Netflix And Redbox Are Damaging The Hollywood Film Industry And How To Stop It, Ryan Sullivan

Loyola of Los Angeles Entertainment Law Review

The Hollywood film industry is struggling. The once reliably steady stream of revenue from DVD sales is vanishing. Since DVD sales are plummeting, film studios are producing fewer movies. Meanwhile, the rental industry is profiting like never before. In many cases, the rental companies are only required to pay the film studios the modest purchase price for the DVD. And, since many rental companies do not have revenue-sharing agreements with the studios, they are able to fully exploit and profit from other people's work, without giving them just compensation. Europe has recognized this problem and has passed a directive ...
