Update: Coppa Is Ineffective Legislation! Next Steps For Protecting Youth Privacy Rights In The Social Networking Era, Lauren A. Matecki 2010 Northwestern Pritzker School of Law

Update: Coppa Is Ineffective Legislation! Next Steps For Protecting Youth Privacy Rights In The Social Networking Era, Lauren A. Matecki

Northwestern Journal of Law & Social Policy

In 1998, Congress passed the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) in response to growing concerns over the dissemination of children's personal information over the Internet. Under COPPA's provisions, websites are prohibited from collecting personal information from children under the age of twelve without "verifiable parental consent." While in theory COPPA sought to provide parents the control over their children's personal information on the Internet, its practical effect causes websites to attempt to ban children through age screening mechanisms that remain largely ineffective.Twelve years after the passage of COPPA, the landscape of the Internet is ...

Putting The Brakes On The Preventive State: Challenging Residency Restrictions On Child Sex Offenders In Illinois Under The Ex Post Facto Clause, Michelle Olson

Northwestern Journal of Law & Social Policy

This Comment explores whether a viable challenge to residency restrictions on child sex offenders in Illinois exists under the Ex Post Facto Clauses of the federal and state constitutions.

Part I provides a brief overview of the history and purpose of the Ex Post Facto Clause. It also highlights the recent resurgence of preventive lawmaking; that is, laws that work to prevent crime rather than detect and investigate it, and laws that ...

All Rise! Standing In Judge Betty Fletcher’S Court, Thomas D. Rowe Jr. 2010 Duke Law School

All Rise! Standing In Judge Betty Fletcher’S Court, Thomas D. Rowe Jr.

Faculty Scholarship

In this essay, based on a talk given at the Washington Law Review’s March 2009 symposium in honor of Senior Ninth Circuit Judge Betty Binns Fletcher and her three decades of service on that court, I selectively survey her opinions on justiciability issues: standing, ripeness, mootness, and political questions. A significant starting point for this survey is Professor Richard Pierce’s 1999 law review article, Is Standing Law or Politics?, arguing that many Supreme Court votes in standing cases generally, and appellate judges’ votes in environmental-standing cases specifically, can be explained better on the basis of politics than by ...
