The United States, an unprecedented lawsuit that involves 21 youth plaintiffs suing the federal government for its affirmative actions that have contributed to climate change.

  • United States v. Microsoft: Deposition by Bill Gates, part 1.

    United States v. Microsoft was a court case filed against Microsoft by the United States Department of Justice. The plaintiffs alleged that Microsoft abused monopoly power in its handling of operating system sales and web browser sales. The issue central to the case was whether Microsoft was allowed to bundle its flagship Internet Explorer (IE) web browser software with its Windows operating system. Microsoft stated that the merging of Windows and Internet Explorer was the result of innovation and competition, and that the two were now the same product and were inextricably linked together and that consumers were now getting all the benefits of IE for free.

    Oct. 30, 2014 (Mimesis Law) -- Ralph Sutton, Chief Investment Officer at Bentham IMF, talks with Lee Pacchia about the business of funding small to medium-sized plaintiffs in commercial and patent litigation around the world. After launching in Australia 13 years ago, the firm has grown quickly and expanded to Europe and the United States. Sutton sees the United States as a particularly attractive market in part because litigation costs have risen so much over the last couple of decades that most plaintiffs are simply priced out of the American judicial system. "The world has shifted so radically to make the expense of litigation so overwhelming that the system really doesn't work for most of the country," he says. Not everyone shares his point of view.

In this lecture, Julia details how the federal government actively promoted, subsidized, and bolstered a fossil-fuel-based energy system in the United States for more than 50 years while knowing about the pressing need for a broad-scale renewable energy transition. She describes why this case was brought against the federal government, what aspects of the U.S. Constitution have framed the claims of the case, and how the plaintiffs seek a unique remedy. Julia also describes the Fifth Amendment substantive due process claim and public trust rights claim that frame the innovative nature of the case’s legal framework. Additionally, Julia highlights the 21 youth plaintiffs that represent different stories of American young people from across the country. Instead of money or damages for the injuries they are experiencing, the plaintiffs are asking the federal government to create a legally mandated Climate Recovery Plan that would transition the current U.S. energy system to a clean energy system by mid-century. This talk is a part of the Bedrock Lectures on Human Rights and Climate change, organized by the Spring Creek Project. Julia Olson is the executive director and chief legal counsel of Our Children’s Trust. She graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 1993 with a B.A. in International Affairs and from the University of California, Hastings College of the Law, with a J.D. in 1997.

After becoming a mother, and realizing the greatest threat to her children and children everywhere was climate change, she began focusing her work in that field and founded Our Children's Trust. Her work has led her to the intersection of human rights and environmental protection and she is passionate about working for youth.

SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ International litigation, sometimes called transnational litigation, is the practice of litigation in connection with disputes among businesses or individuals residing or based in different countries. The main difference between international litigation and domestic litigation is that, in the former, certain issues are more likely to be of significance — such as personal jurisdiction, service of process, evidence from abroad, and enforcement of judgments. Although there are differences among the jurisdictional statutes of many American states, they all are subject to the due process requirements imposed by the Constitution of the United States. As a result, most American lawyers who are familiar with general principles of jurisdiction in one or more states of the US are able to guide their clients through jurisdictional issues in connection with disputes among litigants from different states. The situation is different with respect to jurisdictional principles in the international context. The first difference concerns long-arm jurisdiction, which is the statutory grant of jurisdiction to local courts over out-of-state defendants. A long-arm statute authorizes a court in a state to exercise jurisdiction over an out-of-state defendant. Without a long-arm statute, the courts in a state might not have personal jurisdiction over an out-of-state defendant. A state's authorization to exercise jurisdiction is limited by the federal Constitution. The use of a long-arm statute is usually considered constitutional where the defendant has certain minimum contacts with the forum state and there has been reasonable notice of the action against that defendant. Second, many countries take the view that American concepts of long-arm jurisdiction are too broad, and courts of such countries will not recognize judgments from American courts based on the exercise of American long-arm jurisdiction. Looking at the issue from the non-American perspective, courts in some countries exercise jurisdiction based upon principles that American courts would consider unfair and repugnant to American law. For example, in some countries, such as England and Israel, a court may exercise jurisdiction over a defendant that is considered to be a "necessary or proper" party in a case against a local defendant. It is not clear that such a jurisdictional basis would be upheld by American courts when the non-US judgment-creditor seeks to enforce in the United States. In every lawsuit, the plaintiff must effect service of process upon the defendant(s). In the international context, the issue of service of process is more complex. In the United States, service of process is routinely carried out by private lawyers or their agents. In contrast, many other countries consider the activity of serving process in a judicial proceeding to be one appropriate only for the government or an arm of the government. As a result of differing approaches to the issue of service of process, several nations signed the Hague Service Convention (1965), under which each member nation is required to establish a Central Authority to receive, review, and execute requests from foreign courts for carrying out service of process. Most countries that are signatories to the Hague Service Convention will accept requests for service that are signed by the lawyer for the plaintiff (claimant). Two exceptions are the UK and Israel. .....

The Holy Land Foundation was the largest Islamic charity in the United States. Headquartered in Richardson, Texas, it was originally known as Occupied Land Fund. In December 2001, the U.S. government designated HLF a terrorist organization, seized its assets, and closed the organization. In 2004, a federal grand jury in Dallas, Texas charged HLF and five former officers and employees with providing material support to Hamas and related offenses. The prosecution's theory was that HLF distributed charity through local zakat (charity) committees located in the West Bank; that Hamas controlled those zakat committees; and that by distributing charity through Hamas-controlled committees, HLF helped Hamas win the "hearts and minds" of the Palestinian people. The first trial, in 2007, ended in the partial acquittal of one defendant and a hung jury on all other charges. At a retrial in 2008, the jury found all defendants guilty on all counts. The 2008 trial of the charity leaders was the "largest terrorism financing prosecution in American history." In 2009, the founders of the organization were given sentences of between 15 and 65 years in prison for "funneling $12 million to Hamas." The organization's website stated: "Our mission is to find and implement practical solutions for human suffering through humanitarian programs that impact the lives of the disadvantaged, disinherited, and displaced peoples suffering from man-made and natural disasters." HLF, originally known as the Occupied Land Fund, was established in California in 1989 as a tax-exempt charity. In 1992, HLF relocated to Richardson, Texas. It had offices in California, New Jersey, and Illinois, and individual representatives scattered throughout the US, the West Bank, and Gaza. Among the founders of the Holy Land Foundation is Mousa Mohammed Abu Marzook, a political leader of Hamas, who provided substantial funds to the Holy Land Foundation in the early 1990s, before Hamas was designated a terrorist organization. HLF reported Marzook's donations on its tax returns. Marzook was deported from the US to Jordan in 1997. He was indicted on August 20, 2004, by a US federal grand jury in Chicago, Illinois. He and two other individuals were charged with a 15-year conspiracy to raise funds for terrorist attacks against Israel. Neither HLF nor any HLF officer was charged in the Chicago indictment. In the year 2000, HLF raised over $13 million. According to the United States Department of Treasury, HLF supported Hamas activities through direct fund transfers to its offices in the West Bank and Gaza that are affiliated with Hamas, and transfers of funds to Islamic charity committees ("zakat committees") and other charitable organizations that are part of Hamas or controlled by Hamas members. The Department of Treasury also reported that HLF funds were used by Hamas to support schools that served Hamas's ends by encouraging children to become suicide bombers and to recruit suicide bombers by offering support to their families. Edward Abington, Jr., former U.S. consul general in Jerusalem, acted as a defense witness and testified that during his daily CIA briefings he had never been informed that Hamas controlled the Palestinian charity groups mentioned. The Treasury Department designated HLF as a terrorist organization on December 4, 2001 under President Bush's Executive Order 13224 (Bush).

More than 400 cases brought nationwide by states, local governments, and private class action plaintiffs against the major drug manufacturers and distributors have been transferred to the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio, where Judge Dan Aaron Polster ’76 presides over what the New York Times describes as “perhaps the most daunting legal challenge in the country.” Harvard Law School Professors John Goldberg and Richard Lazarus '79 led a lunchtime conversation with Judge Polster ’76 on his efforts to catalyze the potentially transformative industrial changes needed to abate the opioid crisis. The National Opioid Multidistrict Litigation session was part of the HLS in the Community bicentennial celebration which took place at Harvard Law School on Friday, April 20, 2018.

On Friday, the U.S. Justice Department asked a federal judge overseeing hundreds of lawsuits against opioid manufacturers and distributors, to give it 30 days to decide whether to participate in the litigation. The department made the request on Thursday, after U.S. President Donald Trump earlier in the day called for a federal lawsuit against companies over their roles in the opioid epidemic. The lawsuits have accused the drugmakers of deceptively marketing opioids and ignoring red flags showing the painkillers were being used improperly. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/reuters/topNews/~3/Wzun-gqNXlQ/u-s-seeks-time-to-consider-joining-opioid-litigation-idUSKCN1GE2CO http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Oct. 30, 2014 (Mimesis Law) -- Ralph Sutton, Chief Investment Officer at Bentham IMF, talks with Lee Pacchia about the business of funding small to medium-sized plaintiffs in commercial and patent litigation around the world. After launching in Australia 13 years ago, the firm has grown quickly and expanded to Europe and the United States. Sutton sees the United States as a particularly attractive market in part because litigation costs have risen so much over the last couple of decades that most plaintiffs are simply priced out of the American judicial system. "The world has shifted so radically to make the expense of litigation so overwhelming that the system really doesn't work for most of the country," he says. Not everyone shares his point of view. Sutton notes that the US Chamber of Commerce and affiliated corporations stand as major challenges to the growth of the litigation funding industry. "They are introducing amendments to rules and potentially even legislation to limit the growth of the industry," he says. "You would hope that the US Chamber of Commerce would see that small and medium-sized businesses are part of their constituency and they don't seem to do that, unfortunately."

Environmental activist and winner of the inaugural Children’s Climate Prize (2016) Xiuhtezcatl Martinez discusses the landmark climate-change litigation case, Juliana vs. The United States of America, in which he is a lead plaintiff. He is one of 21 youth from across the U.S.A. who have come together in this suit with climate scientist Dr. James Hansen to sue the United States federal government for its failure to protect the health of future generations. By neglecting to safeguard the atmosphere on which U.S. citizens depend from threats such as rising carbon-dioxide emissions, which are closely linked to global warming and climate change in scientific studies and assessment reports, the plaintiffs in this landmark case contend that the U.S. government has violated its fundamental responsibilities to protect the public trust.

America's health care future lies in the balance, and Virginia's Solicitor General E. Duncan Getchell, Jr., is one of the key figures in the legislative battle surrounding "Obamacare." The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is the subject of numerous lawsuits; Getchell was instrumental in the Commonwealth of VA v. Sebelius case, where the State of Virginia claimed the new health care bill infringed on states' rights. Getchell speaks of the current litigation between the 28 states, including Virginia, and the U.S. Government.

After President Obama signed the Agriculture Appropriations Bill into law on Tuesday, hundreds of thousands of people have voiced their opposition to H.R. 933. A provision in the law known as the "Monsanto Protection Act" protects the biotech industry from being sued in a court of law. The Farmer Assurance provision takes the Federal Court's right to halt the sale and use of genetically modified seed crops regardless of health risks. Jeffrey M. Smith, author of Seeds of Deception, joins us to discuss.

A number of conservative and libertarian organizations have engaged in litigation against regulatory overreach in the last three decades. Charles Murray even wrote a book, By the People, calling for a "Madison Fund" to expand the fight against the regulatory state. Does the election of the deregulatory Trump Administration moot these efforts, or is there more to be done? Will states such as California act to fill a perceived regulatory gap, and will litigation at the state level increase? How have and how should organizations adjust their strategy? What is the litigation agenda in the short- and long-run? --Mr. Theodore H. Frank, Senior Attorney, Director of the Center for Class Action Fairness, Competitive Enterprise Institute --Prof. Michael S. Greve, Professor of Law, Antonin Scalia Law School, George Mason University --Mr. Mark W.
