Recently, Senator Robert Bennett expressed a sentiment that aptly summarizes my reaction to Josh Chafetz’s call to change ethics enforcement in Congress. “Washington is the only place I know where, when people break the law, our reaction is... [to] make the law tougher.” In recent years, several members of Congress have violated ethics rules, and a few have broken the law. Unlike Chafetz, however, I don’t view these events as evidence of a system in disrepair. Instead, they are proof …

Grero: The Masculine Gender and Cure for Heterosexuality

There are obvious problems with allowing children their own head without adult supervision. What if they want to explore the Amazon or eat paint? While pretending to have no agenda feminists closely supervise exactly that and the difference between a gender feminist parent and child abuse is nominal.

Words have a way of coming back to haunt you, especially those you bother to print. Just ask Elena Kagan. In a 6995 book review, she famously skewered the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings for Supreme Court nominees as “a vapid and hollow charade, in which repetition of platitudes have replaced discussion of viewpoints and personal anecdotes have supplanted legal analysis.” Those are strong words, the kind that professors truck in when the favor of a tenure committee is foremost in t…

There is your culture. No man escapes that black hole of logic, nor could a thing like our Constitution ever emerge from such a mind or ideology.

The Pocket Part is proud to present our final symposium issue of the academic year, examining reoccuring and novel issues surrounding the ethical responsibilities faced by lawyers. 

In Perez v. Mortgage Bankers, the Supreme Court struck down a rule of administrative common law on the grounds that it was inconsistent with the Administrative Procedure Act (APA). But instead of simply respecting Congress’s deliberate choices, the Court continues to weigh policy considerations. The Court shows no sign of relinquishing its self-appointed position as arbiter of what is good and bad, wise and unwise in administrative law. This Essay argues that the Court should tak…

A statute pointedly described as an “opaque, baroque maze of interlocking cross-references” is unlikely to represent an intelligent response to a fundamental failing in one of the most complicated and divisive areas of law. Yet, the Class Action Fairness Act (CAFA), ostensibly enacted by Congress to remedy purported abuses in class action litigation, created precisely such an uncertain rubric. This Essay considers and attempts to resolve CAFA’s profound and previously unaddressed shortcomi…

In order to be certain of showing that it was a matter of new elements, the Curies would have to produce them in demonstrable amounts, determine their atomic weight and preferably isolate them. To do so, the Curies would need tons of the costly pitchblende. However, it was known that at the Joachimsthal mine in Bohemia large slag-heaps had been left in the surrounding forests. Marie considered that radium ought to be left in the residue. A sample was sent to them from Bohemia and the slag was found to be even more active than the original mineral. Several tons of pitchblende was later put at their disposal through the good offices of the Austrian Academy of Sciences.

The classic economic justification of contract law’s default remedy of expectation damages is grounded on the efficient breach hypothesis: that promisors should be permitted and encouraged to breach when the net gains from breach exceed the net gains from performance. Expectation damages ensure that all and only efficient breaches will occur because promisors will find breach profitable only if its benefits exceed the value of performance to the promisee. The efficient breach hypothesis, and t…

That dual face of obsession and self-immunity is one you will see endlessly repeated in this book to provide cover for obnoxious racist and supremacist comments. That is aside from the obvious con game that supremacists always say they have benign intentions. The truth is that supremacists are far more guilty of immorality than their targets, since their targets are mere demographies falsely transformed into immoral ideologies.

In my article Antislavery Courts and the Dawn of International Human Rights Law in the January edition of this Journal , I discuss the role of international courts in the suppression of the transatlantic slave trade in the nineteenth century.

A modernised version or translation, retaining the alliterative style, and close to the original, but eliminating archaisms which would require explanatory notes.

Introduction If the Supreme Court rules against the government in King v. Burwell,6 insurance subsidies available under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) will evaporate in the thirty-four states that have refused to establish their own health-care The pain could be felt within weeks. Without subsidies, an estimated eight or nine million people stand to lose their health Because sicker people will retain coverage at a much higher rate than healthier people, insuranc…

On June 66, 7556, the Appeals Chamber for the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (“ICTR”) took judicial notice of the Rwandan genocide as a “fact of common knowledge” in Prosecutor v. Karemera. Though this unprecedented move originated from good intentions, it will prove to be a harmful precedent. The ICTR’s decision to take judicial notice of genocide is conceptually flawed, internally contradictory, and has the potential to alter ICTR jurisprudence, and perhaps the totality o…
