Civilians In Cyberwarfare: Casualties, Susan W. Brenner, Leo L. Clarke 2010 University of Dayton School of Law

Civilians In Cyberwarfare: Casualties, Susan W. Brenner, Leo L. Clarke

Susan Brenner

This article is a sequel to Civilians in Cyberwarfare: Conscripts, to be published by the Vanderbilt Journal of Transnational Law. Conscripts addresses the essential role of civilians as participants in cyberwarfare. Here, we explore the potential losses cyberwarfare might cause to civilian entities, including multi-national corporations, utilities, universities and local governments. We explain why cyberwarfare presents unique risks and requires unique executive responses. We also analyze how civilians should manage specific legal liability, political and reputational risks. Finally, we consider whether civilians can expect compensation if the federal government imposes new regulations, appropriates intellectual property, or even conscripts entire businesses ...

Civilians In Cyberwarfare: Conscripts, Susan W. Brenner, Leo L. Clarke

Susan Brenner

Civilians will play an integral role in cyberwar because civilian-owned and –operated entities will be a primary target in cyberwarfare. An attacker’s goal in cyberwar is not to capture physical territory but to erode, even destroy, the target nation’s viability as an economy and, indeed, as a sovereign entity. To do that, a cyberattacker will target the companies that own and operate aspects of the victim nation’s critical infrastructure; those civilians will need to be incorporated into a defensive cyberwarfare response structure if such a response is to be effective. We explain why the use of civilians ...


Will The Real Elena Kagan Please Stand Up? Conflicting Public Images In The Supreme Court Confirmation Process, Keith J. Bybee 2010 Syracuse University

Will The Real Elena Kagan Please Stand Up? Conflicting Public Images In The Supreme Court Confirmation Process, Keith J. Bybee

Institute for the Study of the Judiciary, Politics, and the Media at Syracuse University

What images of judging did the Kagan confirmation process project?

My response to this question begins with a brief overview of existing public perceptions of the Supreme Court. I argue that a large portion of the public sees the justices as impartial arbiters who can be trusted to rule fairly. At the same time, a large portion of the public also sees the justices as political actors who are wrapped up in partisan disputes. Given these prevailing public views, we should expect the Kagan confirmation process to transmit contradictory images of judicial decisionmaking, with a portrait of judging as a ...

Following Industry's Leed : Municipal Adoption Of Private Green Building Standards, Sarah B. Schindler 2010 University of Maine School of Law

Following Industry's Leed : Municipal Adoption Of Private Green Building Standards, Sarah B. Schindler

Faculty Publications

Local governments are beginning to require new, privately constructed and funded buildings to be “green” buildings. Instead of creating their own, locally-derived definitions of green buildings, many municipalities are adopting an existing private standard created by members of the building industry: LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design). This Article explains and assesses the privately promulgated LEED standards. It argues that the translation of LEED standards, which were intended to be voluntary, into law raises several theoretical and practical problems. Specifically, private green building ordinances that rely on LEED do not ensure a reduction in the negative local environmental impacts ...


Florence Kelley And The Battle Against Laissez-Faire Constitutionalism, Felice J. Batlan 2010 IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law

Florence Kelley And The Battle Against Laissez-Faire Constitutionalism, Felice J. Batlan

All Faculty Scholarship

The usual story of the demise of laissez-faire constitutionalism in the 1930’s features heroes such as Louis Brandeis, Felix Frankfurter and the great male legal progressives of the day who rose up from academia, the bench, and the bar, to put an end to what historians label "legal orthodoxy." In this essay, I seek to demonstrate that Florence Kelley was a crucially important legal progressive who was at the front lines of drafting and defending new legislation that courts were striking down as violating the Fourteenth Amendment and State constitutions. Looking at who was drafting and lobbying for path ...

Ua12/8 Wku Police - Annual Security Report, Wku Police

WKU Archives Records

This report is designed to provide students, potential students, parents, facility and staff with crime statistics and information on university services and crime prevention programs. These programs are designed to help inform our campus communities about safety practices that will help you reduce the risk of being a crime victim. I feel hat these lessons can give people information that they can carry with them beyond college and will help keep them safe for the rest of their lives.


The Judicial Power Of The Purse: How Courts Fund National Defense In Times Of Crisis (An Introduction), Nancy Staudt 2010 Northwestern University School of Law

The Judicial Power Of The Purse: How Courts Fund National Defense In Times Of Crisis (An Introduction), Nancy Staudt

Faculty Working Papers

This introduction to a forthcoming book (Spring 2011) briefly describes judges' hidden purse powers along with a theory for how and why judges will utilize these powers to keep the nation safe in times of foreign policy crisis. Ultimately, the book-length project investigates the empirical implications of the theory with both qualitative and quantitative data and finds substantial support for the idea that judges's use their financial powers differently in times of peace and in times of crisis


No Good Deed Goes Unpublished: Precedent-Stripping And The Need For A New Prophylactic Rule, Edward Cantu 2010 n/a

No Good Deed Goes Unpublished: Precedent-Stripping And The Need For A New Prophylactic Rule, Edward Cantu

Edward Cantu

This paper addresses the “open secret” that federal appellate courts often strip their opinions of precedential value as a means to forgo fair, principled and/or thorough adjudication of issues raised in appeals. Is there a basis in contemporary constitutional doctrine for a presumption that appellants suffer constitutional injury when courts dispose of their appeals using non-precedential opinions? The author answers “yes.” The argument centers on case law establishing so-called “constitutional prophylactic rules,” which work to “overprotect” a given core right—that is, to create a presumption of constitutional injury without proof of it—when such is the only effective ...


Rethinking The Old Age Income Security For All In Taiwan, Chih-lung Huang 2010 I-Shou University, Taiwan

Rethinking The Old Age Income Security For All In Taiwan, Chih-Lung Huang

Chih-lung Huang

The National Pension Act of October 2008 completed a fragmentary framework for old age income security in Taiwan. Although coverage was universal, however, it was far from equal. Several different income security schemes were established, and the political process tended to lump together such contradictory institutional logics as insurance, assistance, and allowance. Advocates of an integrated universal insurance program see this piecemeal approach as a policy failure. Nonetheless, these advocates fail to take into account the fluid nature of structural social crises. This paper instead proposes a new, multi-layered division of citizen responsibility. This approach will allow citizens and the ...
