  • Juliet Stumpf 12:00pm - 1:00pm: Lunch & Learn: Family Separation in a Time of COVID: Crimmigration, Consent, and the Othering of Central American Mothers

    Lunch & Learn: A Series Presented by L&C Faculty

    Topic: Family Separation in a Time of COVID: Crimmigration, Consent, and the Othering of Central American Mothers

    In 2018, President Trump announced that family separation was over (or did he?). Professor Stumpf will address two current issues of separation and prolonged detention of noncitizen children: first, the indefinite detention of teens separated from their families and detained indefinitely in our backyard in two facilities in Oregon and Washington, and second, ICE’s strategy for circumventing a court order limiting the detention of children through consensual separation of largely Central American mothers from their children. The session will address the impact of COVID, and explore the racialized and gendered context behind family separation.

    Presenter: Professor Juliet Stumpf

    Note: This event is open only to Lewis & Clark Law School faculty, staff, and students.

  • Professor Robert Klonoff 12:00pm - 1:00pm: Lunch & Learn: COVID-19 and the Flood of Civil Litigation: An Assessment

    Lunch & Learn: A Series Presented by L&C Faculty

    Topic: COVID-19 and the Flood of Civil Litigation: An Assessment

    Rarely, if ever, has a single event caused so much litigation, of such a wide variety, so quickly. In only months, thousands of individual and class action lawsuits have been filed against prisons, hospitals, airlines, cruise lines, gyms, government entities, universities, and many other kinds of defendants. The claims have sought damages and orders to halt the allegedly improper conduct. My talk will survey this litigation and discuss some of the unique legal issues raised by this litigation. It will also discuss legislative responses, including proposals to immunize various categories of defendants from civil liability.

    Presenter: Professor Robert Klonoff

    Note: This event is open only to Lewis & Clark Law School faculty, staff, and students.
