Judge Shopping In The Eastern District Of Texas, Jonas Anderson Jan 2016

Judge Shopping In The Eastern District Of Texas, Jonas Anderson

Articles in Law Reviews & Other Academic Journals

Judge Rodney Gilstrap has a lot of patent cases on his docket. In fact, in 2015 there were 1,686 patent cases that were filed and assigned to Judge Gilstrap, an astronomical number for a single judge. Judge Gilstrap — one of eight federal judges who sit on the Eastern District of Texas — is so popular with patent plaintiffs that over one-fourth of all patent cases in the country are heard by him. This Article addresses the problems with allowing this judge shopping to occur. It reviews the scholarship on the topic that is almost universally opposed to judge shopping for ...

Ghostwriting: Filling In The Gaps Of Pro Se Prisoners' Access To The Courts, Ira P. Robbins Jan 2010

Ghostwriting: Filling In The Gaps Of Pro Se Prisoners' Access To The Courts, Ira P. Robbins

Articles in Law Reviews & Other Academic Journals

Compared with other litigants, pro se prisoners are at an inherent disadvan-tage when they try to vindicate their rights. They lack many of the resources enjoyed by non-prisoner litigants. They have limited finances and limited access to legal-research materials. Even if they had such access, their illiteracy would lessen its effectiveness. Moreover, many attorneys are unwilling or unable to undertake full representation of prisoner litigants. As a result, pro se prisoners struggle to navigate the complex legal system, often losing their cases on procedural grounds before ever reaching a decision on the merits. This Article argues that, in order to ...

Progressive Lawyering In Politically Depressing Times, Susan Carle Jan 2007

Progressive Lawyering In Politically Depressing Times, Susan Carle

Articles in Law Reviews & Other Academic Journals

INTRODUCTION: Susan Sturm's important work offers a ray of optimism in a contemporary political climate most people of progressive inclinations find somewhat depressing. Sturm examines new models for bringing about institutional re- form without extensive management from legislatures or courts. As Sturm recognizes, resort to litigation as a strategy for increasing gender parity in employment is not a promising option these days, for several sets of reasons. First, as Sturm has explained in an earlier pathbreaking article, judicial decrees are not well suited to addressing "second generation" problems of structural reform of institutions, such as eliminating manifestations of race ...

Proving Discrimination After Price Waterhouse And Wards Cove, Candace Kovacic-Fleischer Jan 1990

Proving Discrimination After Price Waterhouse And Wards Cove, Candace Kovacic-Fleischer

Articles in Law Reviews & Other Academic Journals

INTRODUCTION Anyone involved in litigation under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 19641 or similar state statutes may wonder what is entailed in proving or disproving discrimination after the United States Supreme Court's October 1988 Term. In fact, in the pending Civil Rights Act of 1990, Congress is considering reversing some of what the Supreme Court did during that Term. One of the issues that the Supreme Court addressed during the 1988 Term involved allocating burdens of proof in two major types of Title VII claims, dis- parate-treatment and disparate-impact. Price Waterhouse v. Hopkins, dealt with a ...
