Group Libel Versus Free Speech: When Big Brother Should Butt In, Kenneth Lasson

All Faculty Scholarship

The year 1984 may not have fulfilled Orwellian prophecies of governmental totalitarianism, but citizens of the world remain no less concerned about the quality of their civil liberties. If people could live peacefully and productively together under a strict caste system, or blissfully in enslavement, there would be little impetus to identify 'natural rights' nor insistence upon what we know as 'freedom.' But human experience has amply demonstrated the universal yearning for personal liberty, as well as the need to legislate against its deprivation.

Thus Big Brother has been the enemy from long before the Magna Carta and long since ...

Regardless of their validity and enforceability, covenants not to compete chill the free movement ...

Public Land Banking And Mount Laurel Ii — Can There Be A Symbiotic Relationship?, Cassandra Jones Havard

All Faculty Scholarship

The story behind the litigation that produced two decisions in Southern Burlington County NAACP v. Township of Mount Laurel may accurately be told in terms of plans having gone awry. The New Jersey Supreme Court invalidated the two attempts by Mount Laurel to regulate land through the implementation of fiscal zoning ordinances. In its most recent decision, Mount Laurel II, the court imposed upon communities a state constitutional obligation to provide adequate housing opportunities for low- and moderate-income families. Mount Laurel II thus defines the constitutional limitations on a municipality's power to regulate land. It also establishes a supporting ...

State Adoption Of Federal Law - Legislative Abdication Or Reasoned Policymaking?, Arnold Rochvarg

All Faculty Scholarship

There is little doubt that in order to best fulfill public policy goals,

coordination between the federal and state governments is

desirable.' Coordination has been sought over the years, for example,

by federal grants-in-aid, and the enactment of federal laws which are

dependent upon state law. One technique which has been employed

of federal law into state law. Although it is beyond question that

there is no constitutional problem when a state legislature adopts

existing federal law or regulations: constitutional questions do arise

when a state attempts to ...
