Federal Agency Treatment Of Uncertainty In Environmental Impact Statements Under The Ceq's Amended Nepa Regulation § 1502.22: Worst Case Analysis Or Risk Threshold, Charles F. Weiss

Michigan Law Review

This Note traces the judicial and administrative treatment of uncertainty under NEPA and supports the CEQ's replacement of worst case analysis with a qualitative probability threshold. Part I discusses the development of reasonableness standards in NEPA common law to define agency obligations prior to promulgation of the worst case analysis regulation. Part II reviews the worst case analysis regulation and its judicial construction. Finally, Part III outlines the amended regulation, which replaces worst case analysis with a probability threshold employing the rule of reason to limit EIS discussion to environmental effects shown through credible scientific evidence to be reasonably foreseeable. …

Monkeying Around With The Establishment Clause And Bashing Creation-Science, Gary C. Leedes Jan 1988

Monkeying Around With The Establishment Clause And Bashing Creation-Science, Gary C. Leedes

University of Richmond Law Review

This article examines the nature of scientific creationism and its educational value. Creation scientists and evolutionists study the origins of life, but their disagreements produce controversies that radiate far beyond the scientific community. Controversies about the content of science courses in public schools are widely reported in the press and have become political footballs. The debates between Clarence Darrow and William Jennings Bryan, and their contemporary counterparts, are the themes of motion pictures and plays. There is enormous public interest in the battle that is portrayed by combatants on both sides as a fight involving not only academic freedom but …


Response To Monkeying Around With The Establishment Clause, Lucien J. Dhooge Jan 1988

Response To Monkeying Around With The Establishment Clause, Lucien J. Dhooge

University of Richmond Law Review

In the limited space available for response to Professor Leedes article, there is much which merits further attention but which cannot escape the bonds of paginal constraint. With regard to these unaddressed disputes, the reader is directed to the discussions of the relative merits of the controversy contained within the articles. Given the broad differences in viewpoint between Professor Leedes and myself, it would be practically impossible to address all of our differences in this response for fear of the response devouring its parent article-in-chief. Bearing these limitations in mind, I tender my response to Professor Leedes' article.


From Scopes To Edwards: The Sixty-Year Evolution Of Biblical Creationism In The Public School Classroom, Lucien J. Dhooge Jan 1988

From Scopes To Edwards: The Sixty-Year Evolution Of Biblical Creationism In The Public School Classroom, Lucien J. Dhooge

University of Richmond Law Review

Few issues have generated as much controversy as the scope of the religion clauses of the first amendment to the United States Constitution within the setting of the public schools. Indeed, as Justice Brennan once stated, the courts have "encountered few issues more intricate or more demanding than that of the relationship between religion and the public schools." This controversy is not surprising in light of the important role played by the public schools in shaping the nation's thoughts, beliefs and institutions. It is a controversy without end; for as long as the public schools maintain their primary role in …


Response To From Scopes To Edwards, Gary C. Leedes Jan 1988

Response To From Scopes To Edwards, Gary C. Leedes

University of Richmond Law Review

Mr. Dhooge's one-dimensional article is designed to make us believe that the Louisiana legislature was overpowered by politically powerful biblicists who want science fiction introduced into the public schools. It is remarkable that the legislative history is not cited by Dhooge except for those portions which are included in the Court's distorted presentation of the record in Edwards v. Aguillard. Dhooge, echoing the Court, impugns the motives of Louisiana lawmakers who emphatically opposed improperly presented creation-science. It is difficult to credit Justice Brennan and Mr. Dhooge with a fair reading of the record when they cite snippets of testimony taken …
