Is Title Vii > Ix?: Does Title Vii Preempt Title Ix Sex Discrimination Claims In Higher Ed Employment?, 2019 The Catholic University of America, Columbus School of Law
Is Title Vii > Ix?: Does Title Vii Preempt Title Ix Sex Discrimination Claims In Higher Ed Employment?, Mckenzie Miller
Catholic University Law Review
Across all job sectors, women working full-time earned about 80 percent of what men earned in 2016. Within higher education this gender gap persists in salary, hiring, promotions, and other aspects of academic employment. Professors can seemingly attempt to remedy this under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act or Title IX of the Education Amendments, both of which prohibit sex discrimination in higher education. Circuits, however, have split as to whether Title VII preempts Title IX in actions for employment discrimination in higher education.
The Third Circuit revived this split in Doe v. Mercy Catholic Medical Center, and joined ...

Separate And Unequal: The Law Of "Domestic" And "International" Terrorism, 2019 Stanford Law School
Separate And Unequal: The Law Of "Domestic" And "International" Terrorism, Shirin Sinnar
Michigan Law Review
U.S. law differentiates between two categories of terrorism. “International terrorism” covers threats with a putative international nexus, even when they stem from U.S. citizens or residents acting only within the United States. “Domestic terrorism” applies to political violence thought to be purely domestic in its origin and intended impact. The law permits broader surveillance, wider criminal charges, and more punitive treatment for crimes labeled international terrorism. Law enforcement agencies frequently consider U.S. Muslims “international” threats even when they have scant foreign ties. As a result, they police and punish them more intensely than white nationalists and other ...
'‘Male Chauvinism’ Is Under Attack From All Sides At Present': Roberts V. United States Jaycees, Sex Discrimination, And The First Amendment, 2019 Boston Univeristy School of Law
'‘Male Chauvinism’ Is Under Attack From All Sides At Present': Roberts V. United States Jaycees, Sex Discrimination, And The First Amendment, Linda Mcclain
Today, many take it for granted that discriminating against women in the marketplace is illegal and morally wrong. Roberts v. United States Jaycees (1984) remains a foundational case on government’s compelling interest in prohibiting sex (or gender) discrimination in public accommodations, even in the face of First Amendment claims of freedom of association and expression. Curiously, Jaycees seems comparatively neglected by legal scholars, if measured by the cases included in the various collections of “law stories” or “rewritten opinions” projects. Looking back at the Jaycees litigation reveals the parties wrestling over the reach of public accommodations law and the ...
Are Interlocutory Qualified Immunity Appeals Lawful?, 2019 University of Cincinnati College of Law
Are Interlocutory Qualified Immunity Appeals Lawful?, Michael E. Solimine
Notre Dame Law Review Online
For half a century the Supreme Court has held that defendants in civil rights actions can avoid monetary liability if they demonstrate a qualified immunity for their actions. And for thirty years, the Court has held that district court denials of the qualified immunity defense are immediately appealable under the collateral order exception to the final order requirement. Controversial from the start, the qualified immunity defense has recently come under renewed stress, with calls from individual Justices and by leading voices in academia to either significantly modify or even abolish the defense. While primarily dealing with substantive aspects of the ...

California Rural Legal Assistance Employment Education Outreach Project, Daisy Leon Melendrez
Capstone Projects and Master's Theses
California Rural Legal Assistance is a nonprofit law firm that provides no cost legal services to low-income individuals in Santa Cruz County. The social problem is that too many workers face employment rights violations. The agency problem is a reduction in the number of people seeking employment legal services from CRLA. This outreach project focused on spreading awareness of CRLA’s employment legal services by attending local grocery stores and farmer’s market, with the purpose of promoting agency’s services to the community. Agency materials were distrusted and a questionnaire was used to determine why people are not seeking ...

Straight To Video: America’S Inmates Deprived Of A Lifeline Through Video-Only Visits, 2019 Boston College Law School
Straight To Video: America’S Inmates Deprived Of A Lifeline Through Video-Only Visits, Alexandre Bou-Rhodes
Boston College Law Review
The ability of inmates in the United States to visit with loved ones is often severely limited by correctional officials, and the courts have been reluctant to intervene. Recently, those officials have begun to replace in-person visitation with video visitation. This Note argues that such a transition will be harmful for inmates, correctional institutions, and the communities many of them eventually return to. It also suggests possible jurisprudential, legislative, and regulatory interventions to curtail the replacement of in-person visitation.
Title Ix And Gender Stereotype Theory: Protecting Students From Parental Status Discrimination, 2019 Seattle University School of Law
Title Ix And Gender Stereotype Theory: Protecting Students From Parental Status Discrimination, Jocelyn Tillisch
Seattle University Law Review
This Comment asserts that students who experience discrimination on the basis of parental status have a cause of action under Title IX by using the gender stereotyping theory that is common in Title VII analysis as illustrated by Tingley-Kelley v. Trustees of the University of Pennsylvania. Part I will first provide an overview of the applicable law surrounding Title IX and Title VII. Part II will briefly summarize application of the gender stereotype theory and the applicable case law that provides the legal framework for this proposition. Part III will detail how the Title VII framework can be followed to ...
Crise Linguistique En Algérie: Les Conséquences De L’Arabisation, 2019 Arcadia University
Crise Linguistique En Algérie: Les Conséquences De L’Arabisation, Lily Keener
Senior Capstone Theses
This essay details the implementation and eventual failure of the Arabization policies intended to reinstate and reform Arabophone and Islamic culture in Algeria after independence. I lay out the actions taken by the ruling party (the FLN) against the three main languages spoken in Algeria - Algerian Arabic, French, and Berber - through various laws and even in the language of the Algerian constitution. Ultimately, I conclude that the attempted repression of these languages is an injustice against the Algerian people and should desist for the good of the country.
Student Surveillance, Racial Inequalities, And Implicit Racial Bias, 2019 University of Florida Levin College of Law
Student Surveillance, Racial Inequalities, And Implicit Racial Bias, Jason P. Nance
Jason P. Nance
In the wake of high-profile incidents of school violence, school officials have increased their reliance on a host of surveillance measures to maintain order and control in their schools. Paradoxically, such practices can foster hostile environments that may lead to even more disorder and dysfunction. These practices may also contribute to the so-called “school-to-prison pipeline” by pushing more students out of school and into the juvenile justice system. However, not all students experience the same level of surveillance. This Article presents data on school surveillance practices, including an original empirical analysis of restricted data recently released by the U.S ...
The Impact Of H.B. 214: A Critical Analysis Of The Texas "Rape Insurance" Bill, 2019 St. Mary's University School of Law
The Impact Of H.B. 214: A Critical Analysis Of The Texas "Rape Insurance" Bill, Lucie Arvallo
St. Mary's Law Journal
Texas House Bill 214 (H.B. 214) is subject to challenge under the Supreme Court precedent protecting a woman’s right to choose. Passed in 2017, H.B. 214 regulates Texas insurance markets by prohibiting coverage for an elective abortion unless a woman affirmatively opts into such coverage through a separate contract and pays a separate premium. Similar restrictions on insurance coverage for elective abortion in other states have been met with mixed results in the courts. What sets H.B. 214 apart from other regulations of insurance coverage for abortion is that it does not include any exceptions for ...

Breaking The Chain: America's Incarceration Prevention Of Young Urban Minorities, Analiese Vasciannie
Papers, Posters, and Recordings
This research will address the detrimental system of America’s Criminal Justice System by viewing the behavior of marginalized youth in metropolitan areas. 75% of the young urban minorities imprisoned grew up in difficult circumstances where they lack equal opportunities, such as decent schooling/education, jobs, housing structures, and other socially-improving activities. Not only does the environment of the inner-city affect their life decisions, but there’s also a certain racial bias that is evident in the data as well. Some questions posed around this are “why is the U.S. prisons’ population composed of 1 in 3 black men ...
