Innovations in Managing Western Water: New Approaches for Balancing Environmental, Social and Economic Outcomes (Martz Summer Conference, June 11-12)

Many aspects of western water allocation and management are the product of independent and uncoordinated actions, several occurring a century or more ago. However, in this modern era of water scarcity, it is increasingly acknowledged that more coordinated and deliberate decision-making is necessary for effectively balancing environmental, social, and economic objectives. In recent years, a variety of forums, processes, and tools have emerged to better manage the connections between regions, sectors, and publics linked by shared water systems. In this event, we explore the cutting edge efforts, the latest points of contention, and the opportunities for further progress.

Jobsohio: Don’T Let Progress Stand In The Way Of Progress, Patrick Martin 2015 University of Dayton

Jobsohio: Don’T Let Progress Stand In The Way Of Progress, Patrick Martin

Patrick Martin

In February of 2011, Governor of Ohio John Kasich signed legislation that created JobsOhio. This has been a controversial program based on the method that it was implemented and some of the rules that govern the program.it. In November of 2013, ProgressOhio, a citizens advocacy group, challenged the constitutionality of the program but the suit was dismissed by the Ohio Supreme Court for lack of standing by the plaintiffs. There has been no court decision that adjudicates the program on the merits, only on the jurisdictional standing of a party to a suit that challenged the legislation. To date ...

Daniel Fernando Gómez Tamayo

La Interpretación de los Contratos públicos y privados desde el constitucionalismo moderno. ¿Cómo hace el empleador o la ( parte redactora del contrato) para no generar pruebas incriminatorias de los vicios del consentimiento cuando obliga al trabajador , o, a la (parte adherente) a leer o firmar el contrato? ¿Se puede despedir a un trabajador sin indemnizar los perjuicios, y desconociendo los derechos de la tercera edad, de la madre cabeza de hogar, o de los derechos de las personas desaventajadas o incapacitadas?¿ Qué dice el bloque de constitucionalidad para los ignorantes y directivos de empresas de educación superior?


Contract Theory And The Failures Of Public-Private Contracting, Wendy Netter Epstein 2015 IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law

Contract Theory And The Failures Of Public-Private Contracting, Wendy Netter Epstein

Wendy Netter Epstein

The market for public-private contracting is huge and flawed. Public-private contracts for services such as prisons and welfare administration tend to result in cost savings at the sacrifice of quality service. For instance, to cut costs, private prisons skimp on security. Public law scholars have studied these problems for decades and have proposed various public law solutions. But the literature is incomplete because it does not approach the problem through a commercial lens. This Article fills that gap. It considers how economic analysis of contract law, in particular efficiency theory and agency theory, bear upon the unique problems of public-private ...


Beyond Transparency: Rethinking Election Reform From An Open Government Perspective, Michael Halberstam 2015 Seattle University School of Law

Beyond Transparency: Rethinking Election Reform From An Open Government Perspective, Michael Halberstam

Seattle University Law Review

During the past decade, “transparency” has become a focus of democratic governance. Open government and right-to-know regimes have been around at least since the 1970s. They include measures like open meeting laws, campaign finance disclosure, lobbying registration, and freedom of information laws. But the Open Government projects— variously referred to as e-democracy, Open Data, or Government 2.0— have evolved into something new and different. They view transparency not primarily as a right to know, but as a condition for a more efficient, intelligent, and cooperative form of democratic government. This Article considers how various election reform projects fit with ...


Kicking Employers While They Are Down: Vicarious Liability Under The Anti-Kickback Act, Daniel Horner 2015 The Catholic University of America, Columbus School of Law

Kicking Employers While They Are Down: Vicarious Liability Under The Anti-Kickback Act, Daniel Horner

Catholic University Law Review

The Anti-Kickback Act is one of the instruments the Government uses to punish and prevent procurement fraud. The Act creates criminal and civil liability for the use of kickbacks by government contractors. Specifically, the civil provision contains two subsections -- one punishing employees for their actions, and the other punishing employers under a theory of strict liability. In United States ex rel. Vavra v. Kellogg, Brown & Root, the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit held that employers are subject to vicarious liability for their employees' violations of the first subsection of the civil suit provision of the Anti-Kickback ...


The Revolving Door, Wentong Zheng 2015 University of Florida Levin College of Law

The Revolving Door, Wentong Zheng

Wentong Zheng

The revolving door between the government and the private sector has long been presumed to lead to the capture of regulators by industry interests. A growing body of empirical literature, however, either finds no conclusive evidence of a capture effect or finds evidence of an opposite effect that the revolving door indeed results in more aggressive, not less aggressive, regulatory actions. To account for these incongruous results, scholars have formulated and tested a new “human-capital” theory positing that revolving-door regulators have incentives to be more aggressive toward the regulated industry as a way of signaling their qualifications to prospective industry ...


A Public Interest Perspective On Local Number Portability: Consumers, Competition And Other Risks, J. Armand Musey CFA, Michael Calabrese 2015 Summit Ridge Group, LLC

A Public Interest Perspective On Local Number Portability: Consumers, Competition And Other Risks, J. Armand Musey Cfa, Michael Calabrese

J. Armand Musey, CFA

Before the Commission finalizes the selection of a vendor for the Local Number Portability Administrator (“LNPA”) contract, the Commission should take this opportunity to reconsider the future role of the number portability system and of the LNPA in relation to market competition, public safety and the IP technology transition. The functionality of today’s LNP platform extends well beyond providing routine number porting services between telecom carriers. It has evolved into a significant component in the greater ecosystem of telecommunications competition, public safety and technological evolution. As a result, any changes to the LNPA now will have broader and evolving ...
