This book looks anew at the tort remedy and reform proposals surrounding the modern debate on compensation for personal injuries. Arguing that serious distortions underlie the debate because of its focus on victims of traumatic accidents, the author calls for the consideration of other legally neglected but highly publicized sources of disability including man-made health hazards such as asbestos, tobacco, and Agent Orange, and socially-spread diseases such as AIDS. This ground-breaking study demonstrates that attention to such crucial issues explodes much of the conventional wisdom about just how to tackle reform and reveals that a fundamental rethinking of the compensation debate is urgently needed.
How the provisions of the First Amendment pertain to high school publications is thoroughly examined in this practical reference manual. Ingelhart presents a comprehensive and useful review of nearly all court cases and legal provisions relating to high school newspapers, yearbooks, and magazines, as well as to the students producing them. The overall concept of a free press as provided for in the First and Fourteenth Amendments is discussed. Related free expression matters are presented as background for understanding the Constitutional protections provided for high school journalists. Court-approved restraints on or regulations of the high school press are examined in depth, as are other forms of expression considered outside First Amendment coverage. Special problems concerning printers, photographers, and suppliers are also considered, as are the legal quandries of advisers. The entire volume is carefully arranged into specific sections for quick and convenient use as a reference source. An annotated alphabetical listing of all cases referred to includes available legal citations and indicates the location of additional information.
