Property Law And Climate Change, Gregory S. Sergienko 2018 Concordia University School of Law

Property Law And Climate Change, Gregory S. Sergienko

Greg Sergienko

This article discusses the issue of rules for acquiring property rights in natural resources, land use controls (such as restrictive covenants) and how they can impede the progress of environmentally friendly power sources when such sources are considered aesthetically offensive, and how property law should deal with uses of land that are inefficient and contribute to global warming.

The State Giveth And Taketh Away: Race, Class, And Urban Hospital Closings, Shaun Ossei-Owusu 2018 Columbia Law School

The State Giveth And Taketh Away: Race, Class, And Urban Hospital Closings, Shaun Ossei-Owusu

Chicago-Kent Law Review

This essay uses concepts from Bernadette Atuahene’s book We Want What’s Ours: Learning from South Africa’s Land Restitution Program to examine the trend of urban hospital closings. It does so by focusing specifically on the history of Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Hospital, a charitable hospital in South Los Angeles, California that emerged after the Watts riots in 1965. The essay illustrates how Professor Atuahene’s framework can generate unique questions about the closing of urban hospitals, and public bureaucracies more generally. The essay also demonstrates how Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Hospital’s trajectory hones some ...


Fucking With Dignity: Public Sex, Queer Intimate Kinship, And How The Aids Epidemic Bathhouse Closures Constituted A Dignity Taking, Stephen M. Engel, Timothy S. Lyle 2018 Bates College

Fucking With Dignity: Public Sex, Queer Intimate Kinship, And How The Aids Epidemic Bathhouse Closures Constituted A Dignity Taking, Stephen M. Engel, Timothy S. Lyle

Chicago-Kent Law Review

In the name of public health, authorities in San Francisco and New York City pursued the closure of gay bathhouses in 1984 and 1985, respectively. We challenge the dominant historical narrative that justified these closings, and through that challenge, we argue that these closures constituted a dignity taking against gay and queer-identified men. Bathhouses were not simply dens of impersonal anonymous sex. They were critical sites of community development and queer kinship. Many governing authorities neither considered the value of these institutions nor grappled with queer understandings of space, contact, intimacy, and belonging. The debates and the closures that followed ...


Sound Recordings And Dignity Takings: Reflections On The Racialization Of Migrants In Contemporary Italy, Gianpaolo Chiriacò 2018 University of Salento

Sound Recordings And Dignity Takings: Reflections On The Racialization Of Migrants In Contemporary Italy, Gianpaolo Chiriacò

Chicago-Kent Law Review

In the field of ethnomusicology, it is possible to consider musical collaborations—such as traditional fieldwork or joint musical projects between artists of different background—as spaces where different individuals and subjectivities share their own artistic practices and products, as well as the musical cultures of which they are representative or bearers. Such collaborations raise an array of methodological questions with implications to social justice and power relations. The aim of this contribution is to use the notion of dignity takings and dignity restoration to tackle some of these questions. While relying strongly on my own fieldwork in Rome and ...

Dignity Takings And “Trailer Trash”: The Case Of Mobile Home Park Mass Evictions, Esther Sullivan 2018 University of Colorado Denver

Dignity Takings And “Trailer Trash”: The Case Of Mobile Home Park Mass Evictions, Esther Sullivan

Chicago-Kent Law Review

Mobile homes are a primary source of shelter for America’s poor and working classes. A large share of the nation’s mobile home stock is found in mobile home parks where residents own their homes but lease the land under their homes from private landlords. Urban growth has put pressure on park landlords to sell and redevelop mobile home parks. When parks are redeveloped mobile home residents are evicted and entire communities are destroyed. Residents lose their homes and home equity as they struggle to relocate their homes to different parks or are forced to abandon them. Through two ...


Dignity Restoration And The Chicago Police Torture Reparations Ordinance, Andrew S. Baer 2018 University of Alabama at Birmingham

Dignity Restoration And The Chicago Police Torture Reparations Ordinance, Andrew S. Baer

Chicago-Kent Law Review

A recent municipal ordinance giving reparations to survivors of police torture in Chicago represents an unprecedented effort by a city government to repair damage wrought by decades of police violence. Between 1972 and 1991, white detectives under Commander Jon Burge tortured confessions from over 118 black criminal suspects on the city’s South and West Sides. Responding to the needs of affected communities, a coalition of torture survivors, their families, civil rights attorneys, and community activists pushed the reparations bill through the City Council on May 6, 2015. Representing the holistic approach favored by survivors, the $5 million reparations package ...


Access Denied—Using Procedure To Restrict Tort Litigation: The Israeli-Palestinian Experience, Gilat J. Bachar 2018 Stanford Law School

Access Denied—Using Procedure To Restrict Tort Litigation: The Israeli-Palestinian Experience, Gilat J. Bachar

Chicago-Kent Law Review

Procedural barriers which limit individuals’ ability to bring lawsuits—like conditioning litigation upon the provision of a bond—are a subtle way to reduce the volume of tort litigation. The use of such procedural doctrines often spares legislatures from the need to debate the substance of legal rights, especially when those rights are politically controversial. This Article presents a case study of this phenomenon which has escaped scholarly attention, in the intriguing context of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict. On the books, a unique mechanism enables non-Israeli citizen Palestinians of the West Bank and Gaza Strip to bring civil actions for damages ...


Creating The Urban Educational Desert Through School Closures And Dignity Taking, Matthew Patrick Shaw 2018 Vanderbilt Peabody College, Vanderbilt Law School

Creating The Urban Educational Desert Through School Closures And Dignity Taking, Matthew Patrick Shaw

Chicago-Kent Law Review

Closures of urban open-enrollment neighborhood schools that primarily serve students of color are intensely controversial. Districts seeking to economize often justify closures by pointing to population shifts in historically densely populated urban areas. They argue that net reductions in a neighborhood’s school-aged population result in underutilized schools, which do a disservice to students at higher cost to districts. Students and their families and communities counter, pointing to histories of district neglect of their schools and recent school expansions in more affluent neighborhoods of similar population density as belying district claims of utility-based downsizing. In this article, I use a ...


Beyond Trademark: The Washington Redskins Case And The Search For Dignity, Victoria F. Phillips 2018 American University Washington College of Law

Beyond Trademark: The Washington Redskins Case And The Search For Dignity, Victoria F. Phillips

Chicago-Kent Law Review

In her pioneering book, We Want What’s Ours: Learning from South Africa’s Land Restitution Program, Professor Bernadette Atuahene employs a detailed ethnographic study of South Africa’s land restitution program to develop the concept of a dignity taking. This article extends the application of Atuahene’s theory to the taking of intangible property arguing that the misappropriation of cultural identity and imagery for use as a federal trademark can also constitute a dignity taking in certain cases. Perhaps no effort has received more public attention than the longstanding battle over the Washington NFL football team’s name and ...


Damaged Bodies, Damaged Lives: Immigrant Worker Injuries As Dignity Takings, Rachel Nadas, Jayesh Rathod 2018 Legal Aid Justice Center

Damaged Bodies, Damaged Lives: Immigrant Worker Injuries As Dignity Takings, Rachel Nadas, Jayesh Rathod

Chicago-Kent Law Review

Government data consistently affirms that foreign-born workers in the U.S. experience high rates of on-the-job illness and injury. This article explores whether—and under what circumstances—these occupational harms suffered by immigrant workers constitute a dignity taking. The article argues that some injuries suffered by foreign-born workers are indirect takings by the state due to the government’s lackluster oversight and limited penalties for violations of occupational safety and health laws. Using a framework of the body as property, the article then explores when work-related injury constitutes an infringement upon a property right. The article contends that the government ...


Dignity Takings In Communist Poland: Collectivization And Slave Soldiers, Ewa Kozerska, Piotr Stec 2018 Opole University

Dignity Takings In Communist Poland: Collectivization And Slave Soldiers, Ewa Kozerska, Piotr Stec

Chicago-Kent Law Review

Poland’s history in the 20th century could be a swell script of a movie. A country that had lost its independence in the 18th century regained it in 1918 only to fall prey to Nazi Germany twenty years later. After World War II Poland was under Communist rule that ended in 1989 with the fall of the Iron Curtain. In this paper we deal with dignity takings as defined by Professor Bernadette Atuahene that took place mostly in the early phase of the Communist era.

Creation of the Communist “brave new world” required total transformation of the society, sometimes ...


Dignity Takings In The Criminal Law Of Seventeenth-Century England And The Massachusetts Bay Colony, John Felipe Acevedo 2018 University of La Verne College of Law

Dignity Takings In The Criminal Law Of Seventeenth-Century England And The Massachusetts Bay Colony, John Felipe Acevedo

Chicago-Kent Law Review

When does a punishment for crime cross from being a legitimate goal of the state to a dignity taking? From the Norman Conquest until the middle of the eighteenth-century, the Common Law provided that in addition to execution, the property of convicted felons or traitors was forfeited to the crown and their blood corrupted so that their heirs could not inherit. I argue this is a clear instance of dignity takings. The colonists who traveled to Massachusetts Bay wanted a fresh start and so sought to create a model society based on Biblical law. Using around 6,000 criminal cases ...


Dignity And Discrimination: Employment Civil Rights In The Workplace And In Courts, Laura Beth Nielsen, Ellen C. Berrey, Robert L. Nelson 2018 Northwestern University

Dignity And Discrimination: Employment Civil Rights In The Workplace And In Courts, Laura Beth Nielsen, Ellen C. Berrey, Robert L. Nelson

Chicago-Kent Law Review

Employment civil rights and the litigation associated with enforcing them are a complex interplay of public and private employers, regulatory agencies, and federal courts. When an employee loses a job or their position in an employing organization, the financial effects are very real. If the employee makes a claim of discriminatory treatment using the employer’s human resources complaint processes or with the EEOC or state equivalent, they often face workplace retaliation and even termination. Using interviews conducted with parties to employment civil rights lawsuits, this article argues that the regime of employment civil rights in the United States can ...
