“Part of the reason many believe the cultures of the Third World or immigrant communities are so much more sexist than Western ones is that incidents of sexual violence in the West are frequently thought to reflect the behaviour of a few deviants — rather than as part of our culture.

Berkeley law professor Andrea Roth summed up Stuntz’s argument, saying that these rules … have “rendered trials too expensive” and complex for anyone but elite lawyers to tackle.

“It is very disturbing to read witness accounts that Mr. Williams was breathing and moving at the time of the consciousness check, because subsequent administration of the paralytic would hide any conscious suffering he experienced,” said Megan McCracken of the Death Penalty Clinic at UC Berkeley school of law.

“The good news is that Berkeley has pending CRISPR patents of its own, and these have been delayed due to the patent trial court case,” Merges said. “With that resolved, it’s anticipated the patent office will move ahead with Cal’s patent approval.”

“We’ve discovered 40 different kinds of laws that are potentially implicated when someone ends their own pregnancy,” said Jill E. Adams. … So far, she said, the S.I.A. team has identified 18 arrests related to self-induced abortion around the country, “but I’m afraid that’s just what made the news. I suspect the true number is significantly higher.”
