Domestic Terror (The Sniper Suspect's Divorce Records Show Patterns Of Power And Control And Missed Opportunities By The System To Intervene.), Jane C. Murphy Dec 2002

Domestic Terror (The Sniper Suspect's Divorce Records Show Patterns Of Power And Control And Missed Opportunities By The System To Intervene.), Jane C. Murphy

All Faculty Scholarship

Over the past few months, we have learned much about the violent, troubled life of sniper suspect John Allen Muhammad. Whether or not he pulled the trigger - some recent reports have pointed to his 17-year-old companion Lee Boyd Malvo as the main shooter - there is no doubt in the minds of domestic-violence experts that this adult is responsible for these deaths.

While many pundits conclude that we will never know what motivated the sniper suspect, to domestic violence experts his is an all-too-familiar story of a man whose relationships with the women and children - possibly including Malvo …

Behavioral Genetics And The Best Interests Of The Child Decision Rule, David J. Herring Oct 2002

Behavioral Genetics And The Best Interests Of The Child Decision Rule, David J. Herring

University of Michigan Journal of Law Reform

This Article proposes that modern child custody law should be reassessed in light of recent scientific findings. Judicial determinations of custody use the "best interests of the child" rule. The rule is justified to a large extent by the goal of maximizing child developmental outcomes. The assumption is that a child whose "best interests" are protected stands a better chance of becoming a socially well-adjusted, productive and prosperous citizen.

Recent child development studies have shown that so-called "shared environment, "or home environment factors have little effect on child development so long as the shared environment is minimally adequate. Genetics and …

The Protection Of Women And Children In Islamic Law And International Humanitarian Law: A Critique Of John Kelsay”, Hamdard Islamicus, Xxv (3) (July-September 2002), Pp. 69-82, Muhammad Munir Dr. Jul 2002

The Protection Of Women And Children In Islamic Law And International Humanitarian Law: A Critique Of John Kelsay”, Hamdard Islamicus, Xxv (3) (July-September 2002), Pp. 69-82, Muhammad Munir Dr.

Dr. Muhammad Munir

Islam introduced the most humane rules in warfare before other religions or faiths could do it. Most authors acknowledge this fact, however, John Kelsay, Fredrick Donner, and few others doubt Islam's enormous contribution to bring in humanity in warfare. These authors assume that Islam has learned humanitarian principles, such as the principle of distinction, from the pre-Islamic practices; that Imam Al-Shafi'i allowed the killing of all women whether combatant or non-combatant; that even the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) allowed the killing of women and children; and that women and children can be enslaved. This work completely rebuts all …

Child Care Characteristics And Quality In Nebraska, Carolyn P. Edwards, Lisa Knoche, Abbie Raikes, Helen Raikes, Julia C. Torquati, Brian Wilcox, Lanette Christensen

Center on Children, Families, and the Law (and related organizations): Publications

The Midwest Child Care Research Consortium conducted a study of child care quality and characteristics of the child care work force in Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas and Missouri to help states establish a baseline for tracking quality over time, following initiatives, policy and other changes. The measures are not based on Nebraska child care licensing standards. Rather, using research-based measures of quality, they assess the extent to which quality indicators are present among the child care settings and in the work force. The current study included a random telephone survey of 2022 Midwestern child care providers (508 from Nebraska), conducted during …

Until Life Support Do Us Part: A Spouse's Limited Ability To Terminate Life Support For An Incompetent Spouse With No Hope Of Recovery, Marybeth Herald

Marybeth Herald

This paper deals with a MCS patient in California - a case that highlights our uncertain steps into state regulation of the end of life. After a 1993 automobile accident, 42-year-old Robert Wendland fell into the classification of a MCS with no hope of recovery. He had made no advance directives as to his health care. His wife of 20 years sought to withhold artificial feeding and hydration after three surgeries to replace Robert's feeding tube. The 20-member ethics committee at the hospital, Robert and Rose's three children (two were of college age), and Robert's brother, all supported her decision. …

Incentives For Hiring Welfare-To-Work Participants, Mary L. Heen Apr 2002

Incentives For Hiring Welfare-To-Work Participants, Mary L. Heen

Law Faculty Publications

The Job Creation and Worker Assistance Act of 2002, signed into law by President Bush on March 9th, extends the Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) and the Welfare-to-Work Tax Credit (WtW) for two more years. The credits provide employers with tax incentives to hire former long-term welfare recipients and certain other economically disadvantaged workers, a goal that comports with the welfare-to-work focus of welfare reform legislation adopted by Congress in 1996. This article describes these employer tax credits, explains how they have evolved from prior versions of similar targeted tax credits, and considers their operation as tax-delivered subsidies.


Domestic Violence At The Top Of New England: Law Enforcement Incident Reports From Aroostook County, Maine, Carolyn Ball, Kenneth Nichols Mar 2002

Domestic Violence At The Top Of New England: Law Enforcement Incident Reports From Aroostook County, Maine, Carolyn Ball, Kenneth Nichols

New England Journal of Public Policy

Although domestic violence is an issue regularly discussed in magazines, newspapers, and elsewhere, many law enforcement agencies including many in New England do not have the capacity to track these incidents and the relationship between the victim and the offender. Through an analysis of law enforcement data from Maine’s Aroostook County, in 1997 and 1998, this article analyzes the problem of domestic violence in rural, northern Maine from a law enforcement perspective. Among the findings are the following: the reported severity of physical injury is low, the victim’s contact with the police is unlikely to be the first incident of …
