Prison Housing Policies For Transgender, Non-Binary, Gender-Non-Conforming, And Intersex People: Restorative Ways To Address The Gender Binary In The United States Prison System, John G. Sims

University of Richmond Law Review

“[I]t was the end of the last quarter of 2019 where I was able to drop the lawsuit against the correctional officer who had sexually harmed me when I knew . . . that the carceral state is not the way for me to find healing . . . . I was not going to seek my transformation and restoration through this system.”

Each year, rhetoric and legislation attacking transgender, non-binary, gender non-conforming and intersex individuals seemingly grows louder. Many political institutions in the United States perpetuate and enable the oppression of these individuals, one of which is the United …

A New "U": Organizing Victims And Protecting Immigrant Workers, Leticia M. Saucedo

University of Richmond Law Review

This article explores the viability and potential effectiveness of immigration law's U visa to contribute to the protection of groups of workers in substandard and dangerous workplaces. Immigration law has increasingly become an obstacle to the enforcement of employment and labor law to protect immigrant workers.Moreover, employment and labor law, with their individual rights frameworks, have proven blunt instruments in eradicating the type of subordinating, sometimes slave-like conditions of immi-grant workers, especially those in low-wage industries. The federal government recently issued long-awaited regulations govern-ing U nonimmigrant visas for certain crime victims. Several of the enumerated eligible crimes in the U …

Franklin V. Gwinnett County Public Schools: The Implication Of Remedies For An Implied Cause Of Action, Ellen F. Firsching

University of Richmond Law Review

According to the common law doctrine of ubi jus, ibi remedium, where there is a right, there is a remedy. The United States Supreme Court has long recognized the validity of this doctrine. Traditionally, the Court was very liberal in recognizing private rights of action, and granting injunctive and monetary relief for violations of constitutional and statutory rights in the absence of explicit congressional authorization. In Bell v. Hood, the Supreme Court stated: "[W]here federally protected rights have been invaded, it has been the rule from the beginning that courts will be alert to adjust their remedies so as to …

Adequate Protection- The Equitable Yardstick Of Chapter 11, Amy S. Ashworth

University of Richmond Law Review

A debtor who files a petition for relief under the Bankruptcy Reform Act of 1978 (the Code) triggers the automatic stay provisions of the Code. The automatic stay precludes creditors from enforcing their rights in the collateral pending further order of the Bankruptcy Court. An issue which has spurred continued controversy is whether undersecured creditors who are stayed from repossessing their collateral are entitled to compensation for the delay in enforcing their rights in the collateral. It is agreed that the concept of adequate protection provides for the preservation of the value of the collateral due to its use, depreciation, …

Common Law Remedies Of Employees Injured By Employer Use Of Polygraph Testing, Deborah Weimer

University of Richmond Law Review

Defamation and invasion of privacy occur routinely during the administration of polygraph examinations in the workplace. Previously, employers have been shielded from liability for defamation on the grounds that publications in this context are protected by a qualified privilege. Until recently, the general perception was that employees had no substantial expectation of privacy in the workplace.

Prohibition: The Elusive And Misunderstood Writ, David W. Clarke Jan 1982

Prohibition: The Elusive And Misunderstood Writ, David W. Clarke

University of Richmond Law Review

To many legal practitioners the writ of prohibition remains an enigma. Seldom used and even less often understood, this extraordinary remedy at law has long been recognized in Virginia as a tool with which to restrain an offending court from unwarranted conduct. Used properly, the writ will encourage the due and regular administration of justice by confining each tribunal to the exercise of those powers with which it has been entrusted under the constitution and laws of the state. The writ has been defined by the Virginia Supreme Court as "a proceeding between two courts-a superior and an inferior-and is …
