Bending Broken Rules: The Fourth Amendment Implications Of Full-Body Scanners In Preflight Screening, M. Madison Taylor

Richmond Journal of Law & Technology

In the face of emerging technology, the Fourth Amendment’s guarantee of protection against unreasonable searches and seizures is especially susceptible to erosion. As Justice Scalia wrote in Kyllo v. United States, “[i]t would be foolish to contend that the degree of privacy secured to citizens by the Fourth Amendment has been entirely unaffected by the advance of technology.” In Katz v. United States, technology compelled a dramatic shift in the Supreme Court’s interpretation of the Fourth Amendment. Prior to Katz, the Court generally interpreted the Fourth Amendment to prevent only the search and seizure of tangible things ...

Making Taxis Green: Hybrid Cab Programs And The Debate Over Preemption In Environmental Regulation, J.D. Holden 2010 Boston College Law School

Making Taxis Green: Hybrid Cab Programs And The Debate Over Preemption In Environmental Regulation, J.D. Holden

Boston College Environmental Affairs Law Review

In the past few years, many cities have attempted to mandate the use of hybrid taxicabs. The taxi industry, arguing that the Energy Policy and Conservation Act and the Clean Air Act preempt such mandates, has successfully opposed them. Mandating hybrid cab use, however, is but one important aspect of a larger push by states and local governments to enact progressive environmental legislation and policies with greater breadth than those of the federal government. An example is California’s battle to enact greenhouse gas emissions regulations and its conflict with the Environmental Protection Agency. Though New York City and Boston ...

After delving into Chrysler, this paper will explain the specifics of the ...

Multimodal Maritime Plus: Some European Perspectives On Law And Policy, Olena Bokareva, Proshanto Mukherjee

Olena Bokareva

It is an understatement to say that shipping plays an important role for the European Union (EU) and its member States given that over ninety percent of the Union’s foreign trade is transported by sea. It is conspicuous that in recent years the size of the EU fleet has increased considerably. As a part of the EU’s Common Transport Policy, the EU has also developed its own shipping policy elements of which continue to engender concerns in certain quarters given that shipping is largely a global activity. Be that as it may, a number of EU projects such ...
