VICTORY OF THE MINORITY: The Jehovah’s Witnesses’ Fight for Constitutional Rights

Spring 2014 : Volume VII : Issue 3 Author: Jong In Yoon, Columbia University The Jehovah’s Witnesses, despite their unpopularity with the public, were able to defend their beliefs and the right to act on them due to their willingness to go against mainstream ideals and opinions. While the most famous Jehovah’s Witnesses’ Supreme Court case might be the Minersville School District vs. Gobitis case regarding flag saluting in public schools, this paper instead takes a closer look at a different set of cases regarding religious solicitation, the most important one being Murdock v. Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. In Murdock, the…

VACATING CONVICTIONS: The Efficacy of One Form of Relief from the Consequences of Conviction

Spring 2014 : Volume VII : Issue 3 *Author: Emily Tenenbom, University of Washington This piece is an in-depth exploration of the implications of Washington State’s vacate statute, which allows ex-offenders to retroactively state that they were not convicted of that crime should they meet particular conditions. Despite exhaustive sociological work and legal scholarship investigating the various “collateral consequences” of criminal convictions, few in academia have pursued an in-depth analysis of the efficacy of existing legal modes of relief. This study is significant in that it closely examines a specific and widely-utilized legal remedy; it seeks to answer whether, and…

INTEGRATION AND INTERESTS: The Forgotten Role of Judge Walter Hoffman in Ending Massive Resistance in Virginia

Spring 2014 : Volume VII : Issue 3 *Author: Michael Payne, College of William & Mary In the aftermath of Brown v. Board, the Supreme Court left it to school authorities to solve the logistical problems of integrating schools. Virginia subverted the aims of the Supreme Court and instead used local school authorities to delay integration, ultimately resulting in the closure of Norfolk’s public schools. As such, the burden of desegregating schools fell onto lower federal courts and local citizens’ groups. Norfolk serves as an instructive case study. District Judge Walter E. Hoffman and local business, student, and church groups…

LEGAL HYPOCRISY AND EXTRAVAGANT POLITICAL THEATRE: Sovereign Immunity and its Effects on Contemporary American Politics

Spring 2014 : Volume VII : Issue 3 *Author: Habib Olapade, Stanford University When the founders revised their states’ legal codes, in the midst of the revolution, several of them were content to retain the English common law tradition as the foundation of their new republic’s historically novel “empire of laws.” As conservative revolutionaries, who for the most part did not want to upset the prevailing socio-economic order of their provinces this cross-application was not unexpected. However, if one believes that a society’s legal code should be a reflection of its beliefs or social mores, then this move is problematic….

THROWING STONES AT GLASS HOUSES: A Consideration of Methamphetamine Addiction, Psychosis, and Treatment in Criminal Contexts

 Spring 2014 : Volume VII : Issue 3 *Author: Amanda Bakowski, University of Pennsylvania Advances in neurological and psychological research as well as in brain imaging techniques allow for groundbreaking analysis into the brain and its connection to behavior. For example, researchers are able to identify complex structural changes brought about by psychological disorders, including substance abuse and addiction. However, this greater insight into a person’s neurobiological conditions at the time a crime is committed has created debate in the legal community. Deciding how to properly incorporate such information into legal proceedings, determining responsibility and competency when substances are involved,…
