Have We Legalized Corruption? The Impacts Of Expanding Municipal Authority Without Safeguards In Toronto And Ontario, Stanley M. Makuch, Matthew Schuman

Osgoode Hall Law Journal

This article discusses the importance of rule of law values such as predictability, certainty, equality, and procedural safeguards in controlling corruption at the municipal level of government and how those values are being replaced by political and economic values such as efficiency, discretion, responsiveness, and need. Particular attention is placed on how this change in values may lead to corruption and abuse of power in planning and other decisions made by municipal governments.

Reconsidering The History Of Open Courts In The Digital Age, Rory B. O'Sullivan, Catherine Connell 2016 Seattle University School of Law

Reconsidering The History Of Open Courts In The Digital Age, Rory B. O'Sullivan, Catherine Connell

Seattle University Law Review

Article I, Section 10 of the Constitution of the State of Washington guarantees, “Justice in all cases shall be administered openly, and without unnecessary delay.” The Washington State Supreme Court has interpreted this clause to guarantee the public a right to attend legal proceedings and to access court documents separate and apart from the rights of the litigants themselves. Based on this interpretation, the court has struck down laws protecting the identity of both juvenile victims of sexual assault and individuals subject to involuntary commitment hearings. Its interpretation has also compromised the privacy rights of litigants wrongly named in legal ...

Caveat Emptor: How The Public Trust Doctrine Impacts The Penn Central Test And A Beachfront Landowner’S “Bundle Of Rights”, Eric J. Risley Jr. 2016 Boston College Law School

Caveat Emptor: How The Public Trust Doctrine Impacts The Penn Central Test And A Beachfront Landowner’S “Bundle Of Rights”, Eric J. Risley Jr.

Boston College Environmental Affairs Law Review

Derived from ancient Justinian and English common law, the “public trust doctrine” vests ultimate and inalienable ownership of certain tracts of land in the state. Many states have incorporated some variation of the public trust doctrine into their statutes, constitutions, or common law. The application of the public trust doctrine, however, has been challenged as constituting a Fifth Amendment regulatory taking of private property under the United States Constitution, giving rise to the need for just compensation. This type of application of the public trust doctrine was at issue in the nearly decade-long saga culminating in the decision of Palazzolo ...


Cooperative Federalism And Visibility Protection Under The Clean Air Act, Nicholas Knoop 2016 Boston College Law School

Cooperative Federalism And Visibility Protection Under The Clean Air Act, Nicholas Knoop

Boston College Environmental Affairs Law Review

In 2005, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued regulations pursuant to the Clean Air Act requiring states to submit plans to address visibility impairment due to air pollution. The regulations directed states to consider installing emissions controls at certain stationary sources according to five factors, including the cost of compliance. In Oklahoma v. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit held that EPA lawfully rejected Oklahoma’s plan because the state plan failed to follow EPA-promulgated guidelines when determining the cost of compliance factor. This Comment argues that the outcome ...


Charter Constitutionalism: The Myth Of Edward Coke And The Virginia Charter, Mary S. Bilder 2016 Boston College Law School

Charter Constitutionalism: The Myth Of Edward Coke And The Virginia Charter, Mary S. Bilder

Boston College Law School Faculty Papers

Magna Carta’s connection to the American constitutional tradition has been traced to Edward Coke’s insertion of English liberties in the 1606 Virginia Charter. This account curiously turns out to be unsupported by direct evidence. This Article recounts an alternative history of the origins of English liberties in American constitutionalism. A quarter century before the Virginia charter, provisions assuring liberties to English children born overseas were inserted in the earliest letters patent. These provisions drew on an older practice extending liberties to children born overseas. Because of these provisions, persons born in the colonies were guaranteed the same liberties ...

A Background Report: School Aid Goals, Parameters, Formulas And Impacts Under Declining Enrollment, Dr. Mark A. Edelman, James J. Knudsen

Mark Edelman

There is no such thing as a perfect state school aid formula. Different people define equal educational opportunity differently and school aid formulas include a variety of criteria and incentives that result from compromise and majority voting after being "hammered out" through the political process.
