XIII.Supp. Supplemental Cases and Materials

Original Creator: Jonathan Zittrain Current Version: Lydia Lichlyter Show/Hide
  1. 1 Show/Hide More Cestonaro v. United States--"The Questionable Park Policy Case"
    Original Creator: Jonathan Zittrain Current Version: Lydia Lichlyter

    Plaintiff and her husband were returning to their car which was parked in an unofficial parking lot. The couple were confronted by two two armed gun men, who shot and killed plaintiff’s husband. The National Park Service (NPS) owned the lot in which the incident occurred. The plaintiff sued the NPS for failing to adequately light and police the lot.

    The NPS argued that their non-maintenance of the lot was a conscious choice in furtherance of a general aesthetic goal. Should courts treat any coherent, agency objective as a part of policy? Also, should courts mostly defer to an agency’s stated policy goals when assessing the “discretionary activity” exception?

  2. 2 Show/Hide More Hoyem v. Manhattan Beach City School District -- "The Student Who Got Hurt Playing Hooky"
    Original Creator: Jonathan Zittrain Current Version: Lydia Lichlyter
    Should public schools pay for the injuries a student suffers while cutting class and off school premises?
