Motorcycle Fatality Rates Due To Head Injuries Are Lower In States With Helmet Laws, Mary E. Helander 2021 Syracuse University

Motorcycle Fatality Rates Due To Head Injuries Are Lower In States With Helmet Laws, Mary E. Helander

Lerner Center for Public Health Promotion: Population Health Research Brief Series

There are over 4,500 motorcycle crash fatalities per year in the U.S., on average. Roughly 37% of those deaths involve head injuries. Motorcycle helmet laws reduce fatalities, serious cognitive disabilities, and social costs. Yet many states have no helmet laws. This data slice shows that from 1999 to 2019, states with helmet laws had a 33% lower head-related fatality rate compared to states without helmet laws. Motorcycle helmet laws clearly save lives.


Response To The Cost Of Guilty Breach: What Work Is “Willful Breach” Doing?, Brian JM Quinn 2021 Boston College Law School

Response To The Cost Of Guilty Breach: What Work Is “Willful Breach” Doing?, Brian Jm Quinn

Boston College Law Review

The authors of The Cost of Guilty Breach have pointed out an interesting issue—why is it that merger agreements import into their contracts language of moral culpability to establish liability in connection with a breach of the agreement? The authors propose some persuasive hypotheses to explain the presence of “willful breach” language. In this brief response, I mostly agree with the authors and offer a few of my own thoughts about the merger contract and breach.


Three Observations About The Worst Of The Worst, Virginia-Style, Corinna Barrett Lain 2021 University of Richmond

Three Observations About The Worst Of The Worst, Virginia-Style, Corinna Barrett Lain

Washington and Lee Law Review Online

Much could be said about Virginia’s historic decision to repeal the death penalty, and Professor Klein’s essay provides a wonderful starting point for any number of important discussions. We could talk about how the decision came to be. Or why the move is so momentous. Or what considerations were particularly important in the decision‑making process. Or where we should go from here. But in this brief comment, I’ll be focusing not on the how, or the why, or the what, or the where, but rather on the who. Who are condemned inmates, both generally and Virginia ...


Substantially Mutated: Are Genetic Mutations “Disabilities” Under The Americans With Disabilities Act?, Jessica L. Loiacono 2021 Boston College Law School

Substantially Mutated: Are Genetic Mutations “Disabilities” Under The Americans With Disabilities Act?, Jessica L. Loiacono

Boston College Law Review

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability to ensure that disabled Americans are given equal opportunity to participate in all aspects of life. Title I of the ADA, in particular, prohibits employers from discriminating against employees because of a disability in all employment matters. Courts have struggled to consistently define which impairments constitute a disability under the statute. In June 2020, in Darby v. Childvine, Inc., the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit seemingly expanded ADA coverage by holding that Sherryl Darby plausibly alleged that she was disabled due to a ...


Democracy Is Fragile: Extreme Partisan Polarization Has Become Rampant In The World, Suzin Win 2021 Golden Gate University School of Law

Democracy Is Fragile: Extreme Partisan Polarization Has Become Rampant In The World, Suzin Win

GGU Law Review Blog

The status of democracy once seemed irrelevant in discussions of government in the United States and other long-established democracies. However, with the rise of extreme partisan polarization and the contempt that each party shows for the other, maintaining constitutional democracy is now a major concern for people in America. There is no longer any ideological overlap between the most conservative Democrats and the most liberal Republicans. In the words of Professor Daryl J. Levinson and Professor Richard H. Pildes of NYU School of Law, the “separation of powers” has been replaced by a “separation of parties.” The actions of the ...


Brnovich V. Democratic National Committee: Examining Section 2 Of The Voting Rights Act, Arturo Nava 2021 Duke Law

Brnovich V. Democratic National Committee: Examining Section 2 Of The Voting Rights Act, Arturo Nava

Duke Journal of Constitutional Law & Public Policy Sidebar

In Brnovich, the Court will determine whether Arizona’s out-of-precinct (OOP) policy and its ballot-collection law violate Section 2 of the VRA. The Ninth Circuit held that both voting provisions violate Section 2. The Supreme Court should affirm the Ninth Circuit’s decision, invoking the Section 2 Results Test adopted by multiple circuits, and find that a fact-specific inquiry should be preserved in assessing vote-denial claims. At a minimum, the Court should avoid establishing a bright-line rule as proposed by critics of the Section 2 Results Test. Such a rigid rule runs the risk of masking the nuances that the ...


Price Elasticity Of Demand In The Market For Governance In Businesses Location Decisions In Oecd Nations From 2015-2019, Luke Kendall 2021 Liberty University

Price Elasticity Of Demand In The Market For Governance In Businesses Location Decisions In Oecd Nations From 2015-2019, Luke Kendall

Senior Honors Theses

This study proposes a framework of viewing the competition between governments to attract businesses into their jurisdiction as a competitive market. Literature is reviewed on the market forces and incentives of businesses and governments in location decisions. A possible gap in the literature of quantifying the price elasticity of competition between national governments for business activity is identified. OECD data is analyzed using equations supported by literature and results are evaluated to better understand the elasticity of international location decisions. The results of this study indicate that elasticity varies widely between countries, and countries with smaller economies may face more ...


A Suggested Revision Of The 2020 Vertical Merger Guidelines (May 2, 2021), Steven C. Salop 2021 Georgetown University Law Center

A Suggested Revision Of The 2020 Vertical Merger Guidelines (May 2, 2021), Steven C. Salop

Georgetown Law Faculty Publications and Other Works

The DOJ/ FTC Vertical Merger Guidelines (VMGs) were adopted by the FTC in June 2020 by a party-line 3-2 party line over the dissent of the Acting Chair. One might expect that the VMGs will be withdrawn and/or revised once a Democratic majority is achieved. In my view, revision is appropriate because the VMGs are both incomplete and overly permissible. This Suggested Revision can aid that process. Rather than trying to start with the current draft, this draft begins on a clean sheet. However, it has been formulated with an eye towards the problems with the current VMGs and ...


Out Of Sight, Out Of Mind: Analyzing Inhumane Practices In Mississippi’S Correctional Institutions Due To Overcrowding, Understaffing, And Diminished Funding, Ariel A. Williams 2021 University of Mississippi

Out Of Sight, Out Of Mind: Analyzing Inhumane Practices In Mississippi’S Correctional Institutions Due To Overcrowding, Understaffing, And Diminished Funding, Ariel A. Williams

Honors Theses

The purpose of this research is to examine the political, social, and economic factors which have led to inhumane conditions in Mississippi’s correctional facilities. Several methods were employed, including a comparison of the historical and current methods of funding, staffing, and rehabilitating prisoners based on literature reviews. State-sponsored reports from various departments and the legislature were analyzed to provide insight into budgetary restrictions and political will to allocate funds. Statistical surveys and data were reviewed to determine how overcrowding and understaffing negatively affect administrative capacity and prisoners’ mental and physical well-being. Ultimately, it may be concluded that Mississippi has ...

The Fourth Amendment Limits Of Facial Recognition At The Border, Emmanuel Abraham Perea Jimenez 2021 Duke Law

The Fourth Amendment Limits Of Facial Recognition At The Border, Emmanuel Abraham Perea Jimenez

Duke Law Journal

On any given day, hundreds of thousands of people enter the United States through ports of entry along the Mexican and Canadian borders. At the same time, the Department of Homeland Security (“DHS”) seizes millions of dollars’ worth of contraband entering the United States annually. Under the border-search exception, border officials can perform routine, warrantless searches for this contraband, based on no suspicion of a crime, without violating the Fourth Amendment. But as DHS integrates modern technology into its enforcement efforts, the question becomes how these tools fit into the border-search doctrine. Facial recognition technology (“FRT”) is a prime example ...


Why Bartlett Is Not The End Of Aggregated Minority Group Claims Under The Voting Rights Act, Scotty Schenck 2021 Duke Law

Why Bartlett Is Not The End Of Aggregated Minority Group Claims Under The Voting Rights Act, Scotty Schenck

Duke Law Journal

The 2020 election showed the importance of faith in the democratic system and the ability for citizens to cast a ballot for federal, state, and local races. After the election, state legislatures will be redrawing federal, state, and local electoral districts. Those new districts will affect the voting rights of nearly every American. This Note examines Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, which has traditionally afforded minority group members the opportunity to challenge discriminatory electoral policies that thwart the ability “to participate in the political process and to elect representatives of their choice.” This is an important ...


Regulation And The Geography Of Inequality, Ganesh Sitaraman, Morgan Ricks, Christopher Serkin 2021 Duke Law

Regulation And The Geography Of Inequality, Ganesh Sitaraman, Morgan Ricks, Christopher Serkin

Duke Law Journal

We live in an era of widening geographic inequality. Around the country, the spread between economically and culturally thriving places and those that are struggling has been increasing. “Superstar” cities like New York, San Francisco, Boston, and Atlanta continue to attract talent and grow, while the economies of other cities and rural areas are left behind. Troublingly, escalating geographic inequality in the United States has arrived hand in hand with serious economic, social, and political problems. Areas that are left behind have not only failed to keep up with their thriving peers; in many ways, they have stagnated and seen ...


Jailhouse Immigration Screening, Eisha Jain 2021 Duke Law

Jailhouse Immigration Screening, Eisha Jain

Duke Law Journal

Within the past decade, U.S. interior immigration enforcement has shifted away from the street and into the jailhouse. The rationale behind jailhouse screening is to target enforcement efforts on those who fall within federal removal priorities. This Article shows how a program undertaken with the stated aim of targeting immigration enforcement has had precisely the opposite effect: it has massively expanded the reach of immigration enforcement and created extended carceral treatment within the criminal justice system based on suspected immigration status. This approach, in turn, leads to removals that lack adequate process, are inaccurate, or that reflect underlying racial ...
