  • With Liberty and Justice for Some: Denial of Meaningful Due Process in
           School Disciplinary Actions in Ohio
    • Authors: Genevieve Vince
      Abstract: Students face many different obstacles in school and arbitrary exclusion should not be one of them. Despite the Supreme Court stating that students do not shed their rights at the schoolhouse gate, they in fact do shed their rights. This Note examines how school disciplinary actions deny students meaningful due process. It discusses the foundation of modern due process, including what other rights have been incorporated into the contemporary understanding of due process as well as its historic roots. Additionally, this Note explores the case that established the procedures required of school administrators to comport with a student’s right to due process, Goss v. Lopez. Finally, this Note argues why Goss’s protections do not amount to meaningful due process and how denial of meaningful due process in school disciplinary actions can have lasting negative implications on students’ futures beyond the schoolhouse gate.

  • Punishment Without Purpose: The Retributive and Utilitarian Failures of
           the Child Pornography Non-Production Sentencing Guidelines
    • Authors: Brittany Lowe
      Abstract: Pursuant to the Sentencing Reform Act of 1984, Congress established the U.S. Sentencing Commission to formulate an empirical set of federal sentencing Guidelines. With the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines, Congress intended to further the basic purposes of criminal punishment—deterrence, incapacitation, just punishment, and rehabilitation. Nevertheless, the Guidelines were instantaneously met with disapproval. Asserting that the mandatory Guidelines violated the Constitution, scholars and judges argued that the Commission usurped Congress’s role by prescribing punishments that were essentially binding law. In 2005, the Supreme Court held that the Guidelines were discretionary in United States v. Booker.While this decision resolved many of the issues associated with the Guidelines, it arguably made matters worse with respect to the child pornography non-production Guidelines. The child pornography non-production Guidelines have been widely criticized for lacking a connection to community values, leaving little room for rehabilitation, and being excessively harsh. Thus, district courts often elect to deviate from the problematic Guidelines in an attempt to impose a fair sentence. However, because district courts are free to deviate from the Guidelines at the discretion of the judge, the sentencing system has become inconsistent and unpredictable. In addition, courts often impose punishment for morally repugnant crimes that is too lenient. As a result, the child pornography non-production Guidelines do not further the basic theories of criminal punishment in the United States—retributivism and utilitarianism. In order to prevent the sexual exploitation of children and restore consistency in federal sentencing law, the Guidelines system must be systematically reformed.

  • The Empirics of Child Custody
    • Authors: Margaret Ryznar
      Abstract: Child custody issues are as American as apple pie, with only a quarter of children seeing their parents married until the end. The legal standard for custody is the best interests of the child, but the greyness of this inquiry allows courts to make difficult judgments. In family law, such discretionary standards govern factually diverse cases and make it difficult to draw conclusions from individual cases. This Article offers an objective measurement in family law by empirically examining a sample of Indiana divorce cases filed during three months in 2008 that involved children. The resulting analysis of child custody and visitation awards reveals the current understanding of the child’s best interests and the role of judicial discretion, illuminating both national and local trends in family law.

  • Foreign Corrupt Practices Act Statistics, Theories, Policies, and Beyond
    • Authors: Mike Koehler
      Abstract: The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) is not a new law; it was enacted in 1977. Nevertheless, 2015 was a commemorative year, as it marked the fifth anniversary of the Department of Justice declaring a “new era” of FCPA enforcement, the fifth anniversary of Congressional FCPA reform hearings, and the third anniversary of the Department of Justice (DOJ) and Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) issuing FCPA guidance. In addition to these mileposts, 2015 was also a notable year in several other respects as highlighted in this article.This article, part of an annual series, paints a picture of FCPA and related developments from 2015. Specifically, this article dissects FCPA enforcement in a number of ways and highlights meaningful statistics from 2015 as well as historical comparisons. Thereafter, this article discusses a range of noteworthy issues from 2015 such as: expansive and evolving FCPA enforcement theories, judicial scrutiny of FCPA and related enforcement theories, policy pronouncements and developments relevant to FCPA issues, and developments beyond the FCPA that nevertheless touch upon FCPA issues or are otherwise relevant to a similar space.

  • The Replacements: Conflicting Standards for Obtaining New Counsel Under
           the Sixth Amendment
    • Authors: Sharon Finegan
      Abstract: In 2006, the Supreme Court handed down a decision in United States v. Gonzalez-Lopez emphasizing the importance of a defendant’s right to counsel of choice under the Sixth Amendment and holding a denial of this right constitutes structural error, requiring automatic reversal. Following that decision, several federal circuit courts and state appellate courts have questioned how to apply this right to circumstances where the right to choice of counsel and the right to appointed counsel overlap. When a defendant seeks to replace retained counsel for appointed counsel, should the standard governing his motion fall under the right to choice of counsel? Or should such the motion fall within the purview of the right to appointed counsel? Despite the fact that defendants have sought to replace retained counsel with appointed counsel for decades, the Supreme Court has never established a clear standard to apply under these circumstances. Because of this lack of guidance, lower courts have split on the standard to apply in these circumstances.As recently as April 2016, the Eleventh Circuit held that the right to choice of counsel standard should govern and that a defendant need not show any cause to support his request to substitute retained counsel. In so holding, the Eleventh Circuit rejected the First Circuit’s standard that a defendant must demonstrate good cause to succeed in a motion to substitute retained counsel for appointed counsel.In order to resolve the conflicting standards employed by the lower courts, a clear rule needs to be established to both protect the defendant’s right to counsel of choice and preserve judicial efficiency and fairness to all participants in the trial process. By adopting the Eleventh and Ninth Circuit standard that a defendant need not demonstrate good cause in order to replace his retained attorney, the Court would provide a clear rule that would protect the defendant’s constitutional right to counsel of choice. At the same time, the defendant’s right to choice of counsel should be considered a rebuttable presumption. The Court should allow the presumption in favor of counsel of choice to be overcome by a trial court’s factual findings that a motion to substitute would lead to delays that would cause unfairness or perceived unfairness, or would unduly inconvenience participants in the trial process. By establishing this rebuttable presumption, the Court would provide clear guidance to lower courts struggling to ensure efficiency while at the same time protecting a defendant’s constitutional right to counsel of choice.

  • Replacing Havoc: Creating Rules for Sovereign Default
    • Authors: Edward J. Kelley
      Abstract: Sovereign debt is an ongoing threat to a State’s economic stability and its citizens’ standard of living. A single occurrence of default begins a cycle in which it becomes increasingly more difficult for an indebted State to pay its debts and ensure the survival of its citizens. Because central banking systems and direct spending are often inadequate methods to boost an indebted State’s economy, a more expansive solution to sovereign debt is required. The initial solution to the growing problem of sovereign debt is an international treaty that will allow the world economy to establish monitoring mechanisms to prevent debt crises before they happen and standard responses to cure defaults that do occur.

  • Arbitrating Estoppel: Equitable Estoppel in Arbitration Contracts
    • Authors: Nicholas Oleski
      Abstract: The Sixth Circuit and the district courts within the circuit have held that non-signatories to arbitration contracts may be compelled to arbitrate under the Federal Arbitration Act—even though they are not signatories to the arbitration contract. These courts reason that the non-signatories must arbitrate their claims because of an equitable estoppel theory. Although the Federal Arbitration Act displaces most state law regarding arbitration, the Supreme Court has held that federal courts must use state contract law to determine who is bound by an arbitration contract. This Note examines state contract law in the Sixth Circuit on equitable estoppel and concludes that the Sixth Circuit’s equitable estoppel theory is not based on state law.

  • Private Requitals
    • Authors: Bailey Kuklin
      Abstract: Previously, I examined the establishment of a person’s substantive rights and, correlatively, duties. But this was only the first step. This Article addresses the second step: the means for recognizing requital rights violations, including their articulation, adoption, and implementation. Taking a deontic, individualistic perspective on rights, this Article aims to delineate and protect one’s personal freedom, one’s autonomy. To do so, this Article, using a formal understanding of the categorical imperative, will examine whether an agent’s chosen maxims are deontically acceptable. The maxims need to be both first-order, substantive ones that establish autonomy boundary baselines, and second-order, requital ones that address violations of the baselines. Important elements in perhaps all maxims, both first- and second-order, are the notions of harm, wrongfulness, and blameworthiness. Once an agent’s substantive and requital maxims are properly in place and honored, she is truly in a position to be an autonomous person.

  • When Is a Trafficking Victim a Trafficking Victim? Anti-Prostitution
           Statutes and Victim Protection
    • Authors: Michele Boggiani
      Abstract: Victims of sex-market trafficking are often criminalized under anti-prostitution statutes rather than protected under anti-trafficking laws. As a result, trafficking victims suffer ramifications resulting from both the exploitation of their captors and the social stigma of criminalization. The combined hardships make it exponentially more difficult for victims to overcome their past and safely reintegrate into society. This Article first identifies the sources of the double-victimization problem, including the perpetuated stereotypes regarding trafficking victims and the methods of exploitation, inadequate law enforcement training, and statutes that conflate sex-market victims with prostitution. Having identified the source of the problem, the author proposes a solution for double-victimization, including improved victim-identification training for law enforcement officers, an affirmative defense based on victim status, and improved application of expungement for those who are victims of the sex market and the criminal prosecution system.

  • One Fund Solution and the Pension Crisis
    • Authors: Gordon Butler
      Abstract: The next forty years of economic life will be dominated by one underlying theme: dealing with the retirement income security of a growing, aging and longer-lived global population. This is a "can’t run, can’t hide" problem that will affect the lives of almost every human being on the planet . . . Whether you are light in your pension account, whether you have more money than Croesus, whether you live in the well-funded Netherlands, or whether you are a put-upon unambitious young male in Japan who sees no future for himself, you cannot escape this problem.Before you read very far you will realize that looming Baby-Boomer retirements are a ticking time bomb that threatens even those who have saved prudently for most of their lives. This is because many millions of others will enter retirement with virtually no private savings. The second group, which is far larger than the first, will face unmet needs that governments will find politically impossible to ignore. And to meet those needs, we will need lots of additional tax revenue, which can only come from those in a position to provide it. As Willie Sutton replied when asked why he robbed banks, "That’s where the money is."

  • Bioprospecting Legislation in the United States: What We Are Doing, What
           We Are Not Doing, and What Should We Do Next
    • Authors: Emily J. Stolfer
      Abstract: Bioprospecting is a growing worldwide effort to protect knowledge and the environment. With its potential economic benefit and technological advancements, bioprospecting will continue to grow as the world advances. Other nations have begun to protect the information available and continue to develop legislation. However, the United States has been hesitant to ratify international treaties or implement its own legislation. This Note examines both domestic and international efforts to protect both indigenous people and the environment. It analyzes the legislation the United States currently has in place but also examines where the United States is lacking. Regarding the United States’ failure to implement national legislation, this Note analyzes how two states have tried to implement local bioprospecting legislation instead. Finally, this Note makes a recommendation of what the United States or individual states should do in the future.

  • Game of Phones: The Fourth Amendment Implications of Real-Time Cell Phone
    • Authors: Cal Cumpstone
      Abstract: With the help of technological advancements, law enforcement can now hijack a targeted individual’s cell phone to ping and track the phone’s exact location in real time. Based upon previous rulings, this new tracking process has apparently fallen into a "grey area" of Fourth Amendment jurisprudence. However, real-time cell phone tracking should be a search in terms of the Fourth Amendment and, therefore, require a warrant. Real-time cell phone tracking infringes on an individual’s reasonable expectation of privacy, violates the trespass doctrine as a trespass to chattels, and violates the Kyllo standard by using technology not in general public use to intrude into a constitutionally protected area.
