Drones, Henry H. Perritt Jr., Eliot O. Sprague 2014 IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law

Drones, Henry H. Perritt Jr., Eliot O. Sprague

All Faculty Scholarship

Abstract

Drone technology is evolving rapidly. Microdrones—what the FAA calls “sUAS”—already on the market at the $1,000 level, have the capability to supplement manned helicopters in support of public safety operations, news reporting, and powerline and pipeline patrol, when manned helicopter support is infeasible, untimely, or unsafe.

Larger drones–"machodrones”–are not yet available outside battlefield and counterterrorism spaces. Approximating the size of manned helicopters, but without pilots, or with human pilots being optional, their design is still in its infancy as designers await greater clarity in the regulatory requirements that will drive airworthiness certification.

American Trucking V. Port Of Los Angeles: Is The Castle Doctrine A Ticking Time Bomb, Potentially Eliminating Ports’ Control Of Cargo Trucking?, Katherine B. Puccio 2014 Boston College Law School

American Trucking V. Port Of Los Angeles: Is The Castle Doctrine A Ticking Time Bomb, Potentially Eliminating Ports’ Control Of Cargo Trucking?, Katherine B. Puccio

Boston College Environmental Affairs Law Review

As the Port of Los Angeles and the shipping industry continue to expand, states struggle to regulate the heavy trucking businesses that support the shipping companies. In American Trucking Assn’s, Inc. v. City of Los Angeles, the Supreme Court struck down as preempted by the Federal Aviation Administration Authorization Act of 1994 parts of a Concession Agreement that sought to regulate the relationship between these trucking companies and the Port. The Court declined to decide a second question of whether the Port could punish trucking companies that routinely fail to comply with regulations. This Comment argues that the FAAAA ...

Houston, We Have A (Liability) Problem, Justin Silver 2014 University of Michigan Law School

Houston, We Have A (Liability) Problem, Justin Silver

Michigan Law Review

The development of private manned space flight is proceeding rapidly; there are proposals to launch paying passengers before the end of 2014. Given the historically dangerous nature of space travel, an accident will probably occur at some point, resulting in passengers’ injury or death. In the event of a lawsuit stemming from such an accident, a court will likely find that a space flight entity operating suborbital flights is a common carrier, while an entity operating orbital flights is not. Regardless of whether these entities are common carriers, they face a threat of high levels of liability, as well as ...

“Somebody Grab The Wheel!”: State Autonomous Vehicle Legislation And The Road To A National Regime, Andrew Swanson

Marquette Law Review

This Comment critically analyzes bills, statutes, and regulations that govern the use of autonomous vehicles. Autonomous vehicles, also known as self-driving cars, represent the future of personal transportation. States have begun to regulate the testing and implantation of this technology onto public highways, and the federal government has suggested baseline regulations for states to consider when proposing future legislation. First, this Comment provides a brief overview of autonomous vehicle technology, as well as the pros and cons of a self- driving vehicle. Second, this Comment analyzes both enacted and proposed legislation at the state level. This Comment then recommends various ...


Navigating The Turbulence: The First Circuit Clarifies The Preemptive Scope Of The Airline Deregulation Act In Brown V. Unived Airlines, Michael Welsh 2014 Boston College Law School

Navigating The Turbulence: The First Circuit Clarifies The Preemptive Scope Of The Airline Deregulation Act In Brown V. Unived Airlines, Michael Welsh

Boston College Law Review

On July 9, 2013, in Brown v. United Airlines, Inc., the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit held that the Airline Deregulation Act (“ADA”) preempted skycaps’ common law tortious interference and unjust enrichment claims. In so holding, the First Circuit articulated a two-pronged test in an attempt to provide clarity to the relationship between the savings clause and the preemption clause of the ADA. This Comment argues that the First Circuit’s two-pronged test is faithful to U.S. Supreme Court jurisprudence and should serve as a model for other federal appeals courts until the Supreme Court ...

Sms - Reaching Beyond Low Hanging Fruit, Stewart Schreckengast 2014 University of South Australia

Sms - Reaching Beyond Low Hanging Fruit, Stewart Schreckengast

International Journal of Aviation, Aeronautics, and Aerospace

Human nature predisposes us to maximize our accomplishments while making a concerted effort to balance resource expenditures so we achieve an optimal return on our efforts. All too often what this really means is that we do the easy things that can be done with minimal effort; we grab the low hanging fruit. Traditional incident investigation methodology enables us to reach beyond the obvious reactive solutions. The incident investigation methodology is also an exceptional foundation for safety management system (SMS) development because it supports a holistic approach to reaching the fruit that is ripe for harvesting, the deficiencies that become ...

Grounding Drones: Big Brother’S Tool Box Needs Regulation Not Elimination, Melanie Reid 2014 University of Richmond

Grounding Drones: Big Brother’S Tool Box Needs Regulation Not Elimination, Melanie Reid

Richmond Journal of Law & Technology

The Ford Model A was advertised as “the latest and best” in the world in 1903 and sparked global interest to design and create better, faster, and more complex machines than had ever traveled on land. Fast forward to the 21st century and creating machines that can travel around the world’s airspace appears to be the latest fascination. Until relatively recently, only airplanes and helicopters dominated the friendly skies. But now, the public is catching on to the idea that building an aircraft is easier that one might expect. In fact, a pilot is no longer necessary. Drones, also ...


Your View: ‘Do Not Track’ Should Apply To Drivers, Too, Hillary B. Farber 2014 University of Massachusetts School of Law - Dartmouth

Your View: ‘Do Not Track’ Should Apply To Drivers, Too, Hillary B. Farber

Faculty Publications

Location tracking data can reveal quite a bit of information about a person when it is all pieced together. Just by knowing where and when a person frequents certain places we can know about his/her recreational habits, religious affiliations, professional affiliations, relationship status, personal health and hygiene, social preferences and contacts, and so much more. That is why it is so important to regulate the use of location tracking technology. There are a variety of efforts afoot to rein in government use of such technology – this op-ed is concerned with automated license plate readers.

J.L.'S Time Bomb Still Ticking: How Navarette's Narrow Holding Failed To Address Important Issues Regarding Anonymous Tips, Andrew B. Kartchner

University of Baltimore Law Review

The conflict is clear and the stakes are high. The effect of the rule below will be to grant drunk drivers one free swerve before they can legally be pulled over by police. It will be difficult for an officer to explain to the family of a motorist killed by that swerve that the police had a tip that the driver of the other car was drunk, but that they were powerless to pull him over, even for a quick check.

The Greening Of Public Private Partnerships: What Design Professionals And Contractors Need To Know For Green Building's Next Legal Frontier, Tracy L. Steedman, Stephen Del Percio, Matthew L. Kimball

University of Baltimore Journal of Land and Development

America is at a pivotal moment in maintaining and modernizing its public infrastructure. Our nation's roads, bridges, water systems and energy networks have long been in poor repair. Much of the country's public infrastructure was put into place over fifty years ago, and many of these systems are simply overwhelmed or worn out. Infrastructure that is in poor condition or disrepair is mostly a hidden problem until it inconveniently stops working or worse, when ghastly consequences ensue from catastrophic failures.

Tesla And The Car Dealers’ Lobby, Daniel A. Crane 2014 University of Michigan Law School

Tesla And The Car Dealers’ Lobby, Daniel A. Crane

Law & Economics Working Papers

Tesla Motors, the offspring of the South African-American entrepreneur Elon Musk who also brought us Pay-Pal and SpaceX, is the most exciting automotive development in many decades and a marquee story of American technological dynamism and innovation. The company’s luxury electric cars have caused a sensation in the auto industry, including a review by Consumer Reports calling Tesla’s Model S the best car it ever tested.

Tesla faces enormous challenges in penetrating an automotive market that has been dominated for a century by internal combustion engines. Not only must it build cars that customers want to drive (and ...
