In pursuit of a modern standard: the constitutional proportions of collateral harm from pursuits and police high-speed driving

By Julian Gilbert

The latitude police have on our nation’s roadways and deference they are given in our society warrants a reconsideration of what standards should apply and when. This Note argues that the potential harm caused by high-speed police driving is significant and often unjustified. While the current legal standards allow for some avenues of recourse for victims, they are limited and require a high burden of proof. It is necessary to re-evaluate and establish more reasonable standards for police conduct during high-speed pursuits to ensure public safety and prevent unnecessary harm.

Cleveland State Law Review Cited Five Times by the Supreme Court of the United States

Big news! Cleveland State Law Review was recently cited by the Supreme Court of the United States in one of its biggest decisions in 2022.

In the dissenting opinion of New York State Rifle & Pistol Association, Inc., et al. v. Bruen, et al., 142 S. Ct. 2111 (2022), Justice Stephen Breyer cited two CSLR published articles by alumni Patrick J. Charles. Citing “The Faces of the Second Amendment Outside the Home: History Versus Ahistorical Standards of Review” four times and “The Faces of the Second Amendment Outside the Home, Take Two: How We Got Here and Why It Matters” one time, Justice Breyer utilized Charles’ articles to help illustrate how the interpretation of history restricting firearm usage was ignored by the Majority’s reliance on history and overall holding.

Congratulations to Patrick J. Charles for this incredible accomplishment! We are honored to be the vehicle that allows your research to be read and relied on by the Supreme Court of the United States.
