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 In short order, however, police and prosecutors across the country will be called upon to apply outdated distracted driving laws to Google Glass.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 H. Perritt Jr. 2015 Chicago-Kent College of Law

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

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 ...


Developing An International Carbon Tax Regime, Steven Specht 2015 Florida State University

Developing An International Carbon Tax Regime, Steven Specht

Steven Specht

As atmospheric CO2 remains in the range of 400 ppm, it is necessary to find new international coordination to deal with climate change. The best way forward is an international regime of harmonized domestic carbon taxes. By agreeing to a minimum amount of taxation on domestic, point-source producers, money can be set aside for adaptation costs and alternative means of energy production. Finally, such a plan will overcome the problem of non-participation of countries in agreements like the Kyoto Protocol. As this is a treaty dealing with economics and trade, countries can place taxes on imports of non-participatory countries under ...

Mistakes, Airfares, And Consumers: Restoring The Department Of Transportation's Role In Regulating Unfair Trade Practices, Terence Lau 2015 University of Dayton

Mistakes, Airfares, And Consumers: Restoring The Department Of Transportation's Role In Regulating Unfair Trade Practices, Terence Lau

Terence Lau

This Article traces the problem of mistake airfares and the federal government’s response to airlines that cancel tickets for erroneous fares. Part I of the Article explores airline pricing generally, and argues that airline tickets are a unique form of commodity good, one where there is no consumer expectation of a reasonable price. The dynamic nature of airline yield management means that prices for the exact same seat on an airplane can range dramatically on a variety of circumstances and factors that are beyond the knowledge, control or comprehension of the ordinary consumer. The Article investigates several well-known examples ...


La Carta Dei Servizi Ferroviari — The Rail Passenger’S Charter In Italy, Valentina Gastaldo 2015 Università di Parma

La Carta Dei Servizi Ferroviari — The Rail Passenger’S Charter In Italy, Valentina Gastaldo

Valentina Gastaldo

The essay examines the impact of the Charter of rail services on the general Consumer protection. This document is an immediately available tool that the primary train operator in Italy uses to inform its customers of the fundamental principles adopted in its operations, of the services offered and of the key objectives for 2014. The article in particular analyzes the founding principles of the Charter, the limits to the automatic and flat-rate compensation in case of failure of the service. Finally the paper explores the customer complaints management and the conciliation procedure.

Summary Of Nevada Department Of Transportation V. Eighth Jud. Dist. Ct., 131 Nev. Adv. Op. 41 (June 25, 2015), Jessica Gandy

Nevada Supreme Court Summaries

The Court determined, pursuant to the U.S. Constitution, as well as the Nevada Constitution, there was no taking of Ad America’s property because the Nevada Department of Transportation publicly disclosed its plan to comply with federal law, the City independently acquired property that was part of Project Neon, and the City rendered land use application decisions conditioned on coordination with the Nevada Department of Transportation for purposes of Project Neon.
