Of Arms And The Militia: Gun Regulation By Defining “Ordinary Military Equipment”, Edward J. Curtis Jan 2021

Of Arms And The Militia: Gun Regulation By Defining “Ordinary Military Equipment”, Edward J. Curtis

Touro Law Review

Recent mass shootings have placed pressure on Congress and state legislatures to regulate semi-automatic rifles and handguns in the interest of public safety. However, the Second Amendment provides that, “[a] well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. There is no obvious public safety exception.

Semi-automatic rifles, handguns, and other kinds of arms can be regulated more effectively by defining the “ordinary military equipment” militia members are expected to provide. This may be accomplished using the rationale employed by the United States …


Globalization And Privatization Of Federal Corporate Prosecutions: The Pressures Eroding Fifth Amendment Rights, Katarina Resar Krasulova Jan 2021

Globalization And Privatization Of Federal Corporate Prosecutions: The Pressures Eroding Fifth Amendment Rights, Katarina Resar Krasulova

Touro Law Review

Over the past several decades, our society has continued to become even more globalized and interconnected. The dynamic put increasing pressure on the fairness of criminal trials in domestic courts. This Article discusses two recent phenomena that illustrate this evolution and their impact on the defendants’ rights against selfincrimination: the globalization and privatization of the federal prosecutions. Globalization is understood as the United States’ Government’s increased reliance on foreign authorities in prosecution of cross-border crimes, while privatization denotes the Government’s reliance on private actors in conducting investigations. Investigations conducted by private entities and foreign governments, and the evidence those investigations …


Rethinking Appeals, Uri Weiss Jan 2021

Rethinking Appeals, Uri Weiss

Touro Law Review

This paper makes the point that a court decision that is open to an appeal is akin to a take-it-or-leave-it settlement proposal for both parties. For the case to not be appealed, both parties need to “take,” i.e., accept, this proposal. Thus, on one hand, if both parties cannot achieve a settlement by themselves, they usually benefit from the right to appeal. On the other hand, a right to appeal activates the regressive effects that characterize settlements, which also applies to lower-court decisions. For example, legal uncertainty has a regressive effect on lower-court decisions: if the judge wishes to block …


Keeping The Lights On Through Dark Times: How Subchapter V Bankruptcy Should Protect Small Businesses Decimated By The Pandemic, Daniel Lebrun Jan 2021

Keeping The Lights On Through Dark Times: How Subchapter V Bankruptcy Should Protect Small Businesses Decimated By The Pandemic, Daniel Lebrun

Touro Law Review

Small to mid-market, independent businesses are at the heart of our economy and play a pivotal role in job creation. While it’s estimated by the House of Representatives that these companies account for over half of overall U.S. employment, they have been traditionally underserved in bankruptcy law. Historically, the resources necessary to complete a chapter 11 bankruptcy are not within reach for these small to mid-market businesses. Passed in 2019, the Small Business Reorganization Act has modified the Bankruptcy Code to provide new avenues for these small businesses in need. Impactful in its own right, it has emerged as a …


Yes, “Stealthing” Is Sexual Assault… And We Need To Address It, Mikaela Shapiro Jan 2021

Yes, “Stealthing” Is Sexual Assault… And We Need To Address It, Mikaela Shapiro

Touro Law Review

Nonconsensual condom removal, more popularly known as “stealthing,” exposes victims to potential physical risks such as pregnancy and disease and, as victims make clear, feelings of violation and shame. Such condom removal changes sex from consensual sex into nonconsensual sex. There are currently no laws criminalizing stealthing in the United States. This Note considers possible criminal and civil remedies victims may seek in a court of law. Conditional consent, initial consent to sexual activity that is contingent upon intercourse with a condom and may be revoked once that condom is removed, is a key factor in stealthing cases. Ultimately, this …


Slapps Across America, Jack Toscano Jan 2021

Slapps Across America, Jack Toscano

Touro Law Review

The Supreme Court’s landmark decision in New York Times v. Sullivan was meant to protect our fundamental right to free speech from defamation lawsuits. However, Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation, known as SLAPPS, continue to chill free speech through weak but expensive to defend defamation lawsuits. In response to SLAPPs many states have passed anti-SLAPP statutes that are meant to identify SLAPPs, quickly dismiss SLAPPS, and punish plaintiffs who bring SLAPPs. A difficult issue for federal courts throughout the country is whether these state anti-SLAPP statutes should apply in federal courts. This Note examines the Supreme Court opinions in Shady …
