Monday Morning Message 1.30.2017

“The good ideas that underlie most of the great changes in our society…. have roots in the open kind of information commons of the university or the British coffeehouse. … In those environments, ideas are free to connect with each other and build on top of each other…that remixing is really where great ideas happen.”  - Steven Johnson, Where Good Ideas Come From: The Natural History of Innovation

Criminal Justice Forum - "Insanity as Lost Agency"

CLE credit: 
1.0 free hour

Cleveland-Marshall College of Law will host a Criminal Justice Forum, "Insanity as Lost Agency" Wednesday March 1 at 5 p.m. The lecture will be delivered by Stephen Garvey, Professor of Law at Cornell Law School.

About Stephen Garvey:

Professor Stephen Garvey has written and taught in the areas of capital punishment, criminal law, and the philosophy of criminal law. Following his graduation from Yale Law School, Garvey clerked for the Hon. Wilfred Feinberg of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, and then practiced in the Washington, D.C. firm of Covington & Burling. He joined the Cornell Law School Faculty in 1994. Garvey’s current scholarship focuses on substantive criminal law.

About The Lecture:

Existing and proposed accounts of insanity as a legal defense – what insanity is and why it precludes criminal liability – are for one reason or another unsatisfactory. Insanity should instead be understood as “lost agency.” An act is insane if at the time it was performed the actor lacked a sense of agency, i.e., the actor realized his or her body was moving but lacked the sense that he or she was the one moving it. He or she wasn’t the act’s author or agent. This account portrays insanity, not as a defect in cognition or volition, but rather as a defect in consciousness. Insanity is thus seen as continuous with other defects of consciousness, like hypnosis, sleepwalking, and dissociative personality disorder (multiple personality disorder). The insane have been analogized to wild beasts and children. A better analogy, one with its own historical antecedents, would be to possession. Lacking a sense of agency over what they do, the insane are as if under the possession of some alien force or presence.

 “THE PAST IS PROLOGUE.” Inscription over the door of the National Archives in Washington, D.C.

“ What do you think that means?,” General Eisenhower asked the cabby driving him through the nation’s capital. “ It means,” said the cabby, “you ain’t seen nothin’ yet.”

Commemorating Terry v. Ohio: a Milestone in the History of African-American Lawyers

CLE credit: 
1.0 free hour
Weight: 
0

NEW TIME: 1:30 p.m.

Cleveland-Marshall College of Law hosts a dedication of a new Ohio historical plaque commemorating the landmark Supreme Court case Terry v. Ohio, which continues to govern the disputed legal terrain of police-citizen encounters. The Terry case was litigated by two prominent Cleveland attorneys, defense lawyer Louis Stokes and prosecutor Reuben Payne, both 1953 graduates of Cleveland-Marshall College of Law. These two African-American lawyers argued the case in the Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court, on appeal in the Ohio Eighth District Court of Appeals, and then in the United States Supreme Court. 

The Supreme Court oral argument in Terry on December 12, 1967, was a milestone in American legal history. It was the first time two African-American lawyers argued a case before an African-American justice, Thurgood Marshall, who had assumed the bench in October 1967. The historical plaque commemorates this important event in Cleveland and American history.

The event will be held in the Moot Court Room at the Cleveland-Marshall College of Law, with a reception to follow.

Speakers include:

The Honorable C. Ellen Connally, retired judge of the Cleveland Municipal Court, former president of the Cuyahoga County Council.

The Honorable Stuart A. Friedman, Judge, Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court. Judge Friedman’s father, Judge Bernard Friedman, presided in Terry case in the Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court.

Brett Hammond, assistant prosecutor, Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office. Mr. Hammond’s grandfather, the Honorable Louis Stokes, represented the defendants in Terry v. Ohio from the Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court to the United States Supreme Court.

Timothy McGinty, former Cuyahoga County Prosecutor and former Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court judge.
