Methods: Twenty patients whose neurologists prescribed perampanel were recruited. Initial dose was 2 mg/day, which was increased to 4 mg/day after the first month.

Missing the Forest and the Trees: Lost Opportunities for Federal Land Exchanges

Scott K. Miller
For any land exchange carried out by the Forest Service or the Bureau of Land Management (“Agencies”), federal law generally requires the Agencies to ensure that “the public interest will be well served by making that exchange.” To do so, the Agencies must consider the fate of the land they convey and how that is likely to affect the public interest. To help control the fate of the land they convey and the adverse impacts...

Greenwashing 2.0

Eric L. Lane
This Article argues that this period of unprecedented clean tech innovation requires a new paradigm for thinking about greenwashing. Specifically, it is essential that the paradigm shift from almost exclusive focus on B-to-C environmental advertising directed to individual green consumers to an expanded and more nuanced view that also includes B-to-B representations made to commercial consumers. This new paradigm would define greenwashing expansively to include any false or misleading claim regarding the environmental benefit of...

This Article fills that vacuum by taking a first look at existing tribal environmental law and exploring the...

Why the Commercial Speech Doctrine Will Prove Toxic to the USDA National Organic Program

Todd S. Heyman
This Article argues that the Supreme Court has expanded commercial speech rights too far. The current Court increasingly appears to view the government's power to regulate commercial speech as limited to only proscribing false or misleading commercial speech. Any attempt by the government to restrict truthful commercial speech, even if potentially misleading, is generally treated as unjustified paternalism in violation of the First Amendment. The evolving jurisprudence threatens reasonable economic regulations that restrict speech for...
