Shifting Automotive Landscapes: Privacy And The Right To Travel In The Era Of Autonomous Motor Vehicles, Matthew Gillespie 2016 Washington University School of Law

Shifting Automotive Landscapes: Privacy And The Right To Travel In The Era Of Autonomous Motor Vehicles, Matthew Gillespie

Washington University Journal of Law & Policy

This note discusses the changing nature of the right to transportation within the context of the “single-mode” doctrine and consumer privacy laws. Gillespie analyzes how the right to transportation has fundamentally outgrown the United States’ outdated policies, specifically addressing the right to privacy in relation to autonomous motor vehicles (AMVs). Gillespie then argues that the United States should abandon the single-mode transportation doctrine and adopt “comprehensive protections of consumer privacy when information is collected through AMVs.”

Portlandia, Ridesharing, And Sex Discrimination, Ari Herbert

Michigan Law Review Online

Part III concludes by arguing that the legal system ought to make room for apps like See Jane Go and SafeHer in the current framework.

A New Class Of Worker For The Sharing Economy, Megan Carboni 2016 University of Richmond

A New Class Of Worker For The Sharing Economy, Megan Carboni

Richmond Journal of Law & Technology

Jennifer Guidry begins her workday at four a.m. She begins by vacuuming her personal car, preparing it to "ferry around strangers" for Uber, Lyft, and Sidecar. Uber, Lyft, and Sidecar are "ride services that let people summon drivers on demand via [electronic] apps." Her phone pings just moments after four-thirty a.m.-an Uber customer requesting a ride to the airport. She accepts immediately, makes a round trip to the airport in just over an hour, and pockets twenty-eight dollars. This does not account for the cost of gas or wear and tear on her car.6 She performs ...


Technological Opacity, Predictability, And Self-Driving Cars, Harry Surden, Mary-Anne Williams 2016 University of Colorado Law School

Technological Opacity, Predictability, And Self-Driving Cars, Harry Surden, Mary-Anne Williams

Articles

Autonomous or “self-driving” cars are vehicles that drive themselves without human supervision or input. Because of safety benefits that they are expected to bring, autonomous vehicles are likely to become more common. Notably, for the first time, people will share a physical environment with computer-controlled machines that can both direct their own activities and that have considerable range of movement. This represents a distinct change from our current context. Today people share physical spaces either with machines that have free range of movement, but are controlled by people (e.g. automobiles) or with machines that are controlled by computers, but ...


The Phase-Out And Sunset Of Travel Restrictions In The International Health Regulations, Sarah R. Goldfarb 2016 Brooklyn Law School

The Phase-Out And Sunset Of Travel Restrictions In The International Health Regulations, Sarah R. Goldfarb

Brooklyn Journal of International Law

Whether and to what extent travel restriction should be implemented during international infectious disease epidemics became a controversial issue, most recently, during the 2014 Ebola outbreak. The primary authority on the manner in which to respond to such epidemics is the International Health Regulations (IHR). The IHR is a treaty, established by the World Health Organization (WHO), which governs and coordinates international responses to international infectious disease epidemics. Despite the WHO's strong advisement to the contrary, many countries who were signatories to the IHR implemented travel bans and other types of travel restrictions to prevent the transmission of the ...


Tesla, Dealer Franchise Laws, And The Politics Of Crony Capitalism, Daniel A. Crane 2016 University of Michigan Law School

Tesla, Dealer Franchise Laws, And The Politics Of Crony Capitalism, Daniel A. Crane

Articles

Public choice theory has long proclaimed that business interests can capture regulatory processes to generate economic rents at the expense of consumers. Such political exploitation may go unnoticed and unchallenged for long time periods because, though the rents are captured by a relatively small number of individuals or firms, the costs are widely diffused over a large number of consumers. The triggering event to expose and mobilize opposition to the regulatory capture may not arise until a new technology seeks to challenge the incumbent technology, thus creating a motivated champion to expose and oppose the regulatory capture and advocate for ...

Agdaagux Tribe Of King Cove V. Jewell, Taylor R. Thompson

Public Land and Resources Law Review

In a lengthy opinion by the Alaska District Court, the battle for a proposed medical emergency road through the Izembek National Refuge stalled. The court held that the Department of the Interior’s No Action Alternative blocked the construction of the road was decided in accordance within the Department’s authority. It is not the end of the battle over the road, as the court alluded that Congress may be able to change this decision.


Google Glass While Driving, Adam M. Gershowitz 2015 William & Mary Law School

Google Glass While Driving, Adam M. Gershowitz

Faculty Publications

Is it legal to use Google Glass while driving? Most states ban texting while driving and a large number also forbid drivers from being able to see television and video screens. But do these statutes apply to Google Glass? Google advises users to check their states’ law and to “[r]ead up and follow the law!” Yet, laws designed for a tangible world are very difficult to apply to virtual screens projected by futuristic wearable technology. In short order, however, police and prosecutors across the country will be called upon to apply outdated distracted driving laws to Google Glass.

One Centimeter Over My Back Yard: Where Does Federal Preemption Of State Drone Regulation Start? (With Albert J. Plawinski", Henry Perritt

Henry H. Perritt, Jr.

The proliferation of cheap civilian drones and their obvious utility for precision agriculture, motion picture and television production, aerial surveying, newsgathering, utility infrastructure inspection, and disaster relief has accelerated the FAA’s sluggish effort to develop a proposal for generally applicable rules and caused it to grant more than 600 “section 333 exemptions” permitting commercial drone flight before its rules are finalized.Federal preemption in the field of aviation safety regulation is generally assumed, but political pressure on states and municipalities to regulate drones and the ability of this revolutionary aviation technology to open up space close to the ground ...

Vw And Gm Scandals Show Why Regulation Matters, Robert R.M. Verchick, Rena Steinzor 2015 Loyola University New Orleans

Vw And Gm Scandals Show Why Regulation Matters, Robert R.M. Verchick, Rena Steinzor

Robert R.M. Verchick

Conservatives love to belittle federal regulations — especially the ones designed to keep our air clean, our water drinkable, our workplaces safe, and our financial markets stable. Conservatives, of course, don’t oppose any of those things. They just think unregulated markets, left on their own, will keep bad things from happening. Customers will see when a dishonest company is putting Americans at risk; and when they do, they will unleash their fury and incinerate it. Unbridled capitalism is the world’s largest self-cleaning oven. Last week’s news from the automotive industry should lay that argument to rest.

The Emerging Seat Belt Defense: Two Views, John A. Trerilla 2015 The University of Akron

The Emerging Seat Belt Defense: Two Views, John A. Trerilla

Akron Law Review

The courts have recently been concerned with the new problem of whether the law of torts imposes a legal obligation upon individuals to wear seat belts. The seat belt defense is in its formative years. It was first presented less than a decade ago, and has since been presented in approximately fifty cases. To date, less than half of the judicial jurisdictions in the country have considered the defense.


Automobile Insurance Rates: Promulgation, Regulation, And Equal Protection, James J. McGraw 2015 The University of Akron

Automobile Insurance Rates: Promulgation, Regulation, And Equal Protection, James J. Mcgraw

Akron Law Review

T HE INTEREST in the price one pays for automobile insurance continues to grow at a rapid pace. The reason for this growing consumer interest may be attributed to the equally increasing need for automobiles, the price paid for them, and consequently, the need for insurance protection. This insurance protection has developed into a matter of major economic consequence to the auto owner.....The key to improved and efficient rate-watching is in the good faith efforts and perseverance of the policyholders themselves. Accordingly, an examination of the effects of consumerism along with a discussion of modern rate and regulatory developments ...
