The First Amendment and civil liability by Robert M O'Neil( )

7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 2,127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, First Amendment scholar Robert M. O'Neil confronts the new threats to free expression posed by civil liability suits brought against the media. Until very recently, publishers and media producers had assumed that - with a few exceptions such as libel - freedom of expression was absolute and protected from civil liability claims in the form of damage awards. In the late 1990s, these complacent assumptions were sharply challenged. The case of the Hit-Man Manual signaled the shift. After a hired assassin had been convicted of a brutal murder in a Washington, D.C., suburb, it was revealed that he had made use of a book that contained graphic, detailed instructions on how to carry out an execution. When the family of the victims sued the publisher for wrongful death, a federal appeals court ruled that the book was "not protected speech" since its apparent purpose was "to facilitate murder." A publisher was thus, for the very first time, potentially liable for criminal acts committed by a reader of one of its books. Later cases, especially a suit against Oliver Stone, producer of Natural Born Killers, have invoked this ruling in seeking to impose liability on those who create and distribute material that causes others to inflict injury or death."--Jacket

Discriminating against discrimination : preferential admissions and the DeFunis case by Robert M O'Neil( Book )

12 editions published between 1975 and 1976 in English and Undetermined and held by 850 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book deals with the lawsuit Marco De Funis filed against the University of Washington which brought about the first court decision bearing on the issue of the legality of preferential admission of minority students to American universities. Background of the problem of reverse discrimination is given in a historical review of the events that led De Funis to appeal to the courts. It is shown that factors other than paper records and test scores in college admissions are neither recent in origin nor limited to disadvantaged minority students. The background nature, and extent of nonracial departures from rank ordering in the admissions process is explored in order to understand the De Funis case. Recent trends and current opportunities for minority students in American higher education, with special attention to legal education is also examined in the book. This analysis sets the stage for a consideration of the legal and constitutional factors impinging upon the admissions process. After stating the case in behalf of preferential admissions and discussing its relationship to the constitution, various nonracial alternatives such as nondiscrimination, the abolition of standardized tests, open admissions, and expansion of junior colleges and black colleges are studied. All of these alternatives are found to be ineffective. A discussion of the case against preferential admissions indicates that the education of preferentially admitted students is likely to be expensive in both tangible and intangible terms. Generally, it is argued that special admissions procedures are justified to remedy the extreme under-representation of black, Spanish-speaking, and other minority students in higher education.

Academic freedom in the wired world : political extremism, corporate power, and the university by Robert M O'Neil( Book )

6 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 730 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A longtime activist-scholar takes readers through the changing landscape of academic freedom. From the aftermath of September 11 to the new frontier of blogging, Robert O'Neil examines the tension between institutional and individual interests. Many cases boil down to a hotly contested question: Who has the right to decide what is taught in the classroom?" "O'Neil shows how courts increasingly restrict professorial judgment, and how the feeble protection of what is posted on the Internet and written in email makes academics more vulnerable than ever. Even more provocatively, O'Neil argues that the newest threats to academic freedom come not from government, but from the private sector. Corporations increasingly sponsor and control university-based research, while self-appointed watchdogs systematically harass individual teachers on websites and blogs. Most troubling, these threats to academic freedom are nearly immune from legal recourse." "Insisting that new concepts of academic freedom and new strategies for maintaining it are needed, O'Neil urges academics to work together across rigid divisions between "left" and "right," and to be alert to new threats from within the academic world itself."--Jacket
