From A Constitutional Right To A Policy Of Exceptions: Abigail Alliance And The Future Of Access To Experimental Therapy, Patricia J. Zettler, Seema K. Shah

Faculty Publications By Year

Although there has been considerable attention to the plight of terminally ill patients with highly sympathetic constitutional and contractual claims that they should be permitted access to unapproved drugs, courts have been appropriately reluctant to grant such claims. Congress and administrative agencies have the requisite institutional competence to decide complex policy issues related to science and health care such as those involved in establishing an expanded access program. Congress and FDA should allow only limited access to unapproved therapies because there are significant concerns about the safety and efficacy of unapproved drugs. Moreover, many of the proposals to widen access ...


A Dark Descent Into Reality: Making The Case For An Objective Definition Of Torture, Michael W. Lewis 2010 Washington and Lee University School of Law

A Dark Descent Into Reality: Making The Case For An Objective Definition Of Torture, Michael W. Lewis

Washington and Lee Law Review

The definition of torture is broken. The malleability of the term "severe pain or suffering" at the heart of the definition has created a situation in which the world agrees on the words but cannot agree on their meaning. The "V know it when I see it" nature of the discussion of torture makes it clear that the definition is largely left to the eye of the beholder. This is particularly problematic when international Law's reliance on self-enforcement is considered After discussing current misconceptions about intelligence gathering and coercion that are common to all sides of the torture debate ...

The Second Kind Of Sin: Making The Case For A Duty To Disclose Facts Related To Genericism And Functionality In The Trademark Office, Susan M. Richey

Washington and Lee Law Review

Fraud jurisprudence in the federal Trademark Office encourages trademark holders to remain ignorant-or worse, silent-regarding facts that may reveal the generic or functional nature of their marks. If that failure to investigate or to voluntarily disclose relevant information results in the award or maintenance of afederal trademark registrationfo r invalids ubject matter, the public suffers an injury. The injury is particularly acute because numerous amendments to the 1946 Lanham Act in the decades since its passage have substantially increased the evidentiary utility and power of a federal registration. Although Procedures exist to allow a challenger to oppose or cancel an ...

Wastewater Resources: Rethinking Centralized Wastewater Treatment Systems, Land Use Planning And Water Conservation, Colin Crawford

Publications

This article aims to contribute to the debate about the legal and regulatory failure to search for imaginative-and immediate-solutions to questions of wastewater management. Following this introductory section, Part I examines the existing, highly centralized models of wastewater treatment in the United States. To do so, Part I first examines federal environmental law and regulation relating to wastewater treatment. In addition, Part I briefly looks at a sampling of state laws affecting wastewater treatment and concludes that neither federal law nor typical state laws express a preference for centralized wastewater treatment-the dominant and default method for wastewater treatment in the ...
