IN BRIEF

PRESS CLIPPINGS “With Kennedy gone, we could see the broad scope of reproductive access through various means sharply scaled back. A lot of civil rights are now at grave risk.” Professor Maya Manian in The New York Times after Supreme Court Justice Anthony M. Kennedy announced his decision to retire.

“[It] makes a big difference in terms of what we as the public get to know about how our police officers are responding in situations like this, which are fraught and complicated and where lives are on the line.” Associate Professor Lara Bazelon on KQED, about an effort to force former San Francisco Police Chief Greg Suhr and current District Attorney George Gascón to give sworn testimony in a federal civil rights case over the fatal 2015 police shooting of Mario Woods.

“This is problematic because it’s the systemic claims that are more likely to trigger organizational reform, changes in the systems and work cultures that may be keeping women as a group from succeeding at the same rates as men at Microsoft.” Associate Dean for Faculty Scholarship and Professor Tristin Green in The Seattle Times, after a judge in an ongoing Microsoft gender bias lawsuit denied to make the suit a class action, saying that the plaintiffs did not prove they faced a common discrimination policy.

“In spite of the agreement, it’s entirely up to Vietnam. What usually happens is that the receiving country is not willing to take the people. But if the receiving country is willing to take the person, then there’s not much that can be done about that.” Professor Bill Ong Hing on NBC News about the deportation of a small number of Vietnamese nationals last December despite a bilateral agreement that many immigration and civil rights advocates say apparently excludes the immigrants from being deported.

“Some think this case is really sort of a Trojan Horse. If the Supreme Court makes really signifcant changes to the direct purchaser rule, it could have a profound impact not only for Apple and the high-tech world, but for private antitrust enforcement across the board.” Professor Joshua Davis in an S&P Global Market Intelligence article after the U.S. Supreme Court decided to hear the long-standing Apple v. Pepper antitrust case, which could have significant implications for Apple Inc. and its App Store, potentially undermining what has proven to be an effective business model.
