UC Hastings Faculty in the News: Professors Feldman, Little, Reiss

A regular feature of the UC Hastings Engaged Scholarship Blog highlighting recent media hits, citations and quotes.

Robin FeldmanRobin Feldman
As the debate about patent trolls heats up around the country, with all three branches of government wading into the fray, Professor Robin Feldman’s research on the subject is becoming an increasingly vital part of the conversation. Congress, the FTC and the White House have all relied on her groundbreaking research to inform their understanding of patent trolls and in many cases, have acted upon her calls for broad-ranging investigations into the issue.

Rory LittleRory Little
With the start of the new Supreme Court term on Monday, Professor Rory Little has been busy previewing the docket for the OT2013-14 season. He has written two articles about a case for the widely-read website SCOTUSBlog: first, on Monday, he offered a summary of the facts in Burt v. Titlow, asking whether “fun facts can ever produce good law.” On Wednesday he offered a summary of the previous day’s oral arguments in the case, noting that the state seemed likely to prevail. Fingers crossed for more SCOTUSBlog analysis from Professor Little – a dedicated Supreme Court watcher, he is both passionate and gifted in this regard.

Dorit Rubinstein ReissDorit Rubinstein Reiss
Professor Dorit Rubinstein Reiss is quickly becoming the nation’s foremost legal expert about the potential for tort liability for parents who choose not to vaccinate their children. In addition to running her own blog on the subject, Before Vaccines, Professor Reiss has penned multiple Op-Eds and articles about the dangers of choosing not to vaccinate. Her latest piece in the Recorder discusses California’s new bill AB2109, which goes into effect January 2014, and changes the requirements for parents who want to utilize California's personal belief exemption and send their children to school without the required childhood immunizations.
