By Nobuhisa Ishizuka
In the 13 months between the arrest of Carlos Ghosn, the former chief executive of Nissan, and his fleeing Japan amid allegations of improper compensation and misuse of corporate assets, the Japanese criminal justice system has been put under a microscope.

Electric bills will increase more than 4% this year following Con Ed rate hike approval
A plan from Consolidated Edison to raise rates on electric and gas over the next years was approved Thursday by the state Public Service Commission, despite the protests of environmental and consumer groups. . . . The Mayor’s Office of Sustainability, Columbia University’s Sabin Center for Climate Change and the Natural Resources Defense Council all signed off on the plan. The NRDC, however, provided its approval only the electric increases and spending, not the natural gas proposal.

Her Sorority Sisters Suspected She Was Pregnant. What Did Emile Weaver Know?
While safe haven sites do get used, their national implementation hasn’t curbed neonaticide in the way supporters hoped it would, in part because they’re logistically challenging for the population particularly vulnerable to neonaticide. “How does a mother get from the locked bathroom in her parents’ house to the safe haven without being seen or without the infant being heard?” law professor Carol Sanger writes in the Columbia Law Review. “Does she take a bus or subway or borrow the family car? What does she use to transport the baby?”

An Impeachment Trial That Could Unfold Out of Public View
“There is clearly strong precedent for the use of secrecy in at least some phases of the deliberation,” said David Pozen, a law professor at Columbia Law School who has studied the issue. “That seems eminently defensible as long as it is buffered by transparency at the outset about the charge and transparency at the back end about the ultimate outcome.”

Supreme Court could use 'Bridgegate' case to limit attempts to prosecute corruption
By Jennifer Rodgers
The defendants argued, in essence, that politicians lie all the time about the motivations behind their decisions, and virtually every governmental decision involves some use of public resources, so criminalizing that behavior goes too far and would make too much conduct illegal. And on Tuesday, multiple justices indicated during the oral argument that they may agree. There are many reasons we should all find that troubling.

Argument analysis: Justices debate ability of business that did not sign arbitration agreement to compel arbitration
By Ronald Mann
This was a hard argument to interpret, but it seems likely to result in a sharply divided court. Roberts and Ginsburg, for example, seemed least inclined to sign on to a decision allowing GE France to force Outokumpu into arbitration. On the other hand, Sotomayor and Gorsuch appeared to find GE France’s efforts to arbitrate quite sensible, and certainly a topic on which they would tolerate lower-court exploration.

The panel, titled "Stakeholder Capitalism: How to Enable Long-Term Investing," . . . featured Columbia Law School professor Katharina Pistor . . . "When you look at the hardwiring of the system, it's really the law that hardwires the system. A corporation can be written in hard law in different ways, but it has been written in a particular way, especially in the US and the UK," Pistor said. "And that basically means that shareholder value does trump, in the end."

What Sort of “Abuse of Power” Would Amount to an Impeachable Offense?
By Philip Bobbitt
It wasn’t simply that President Trump in his conversations with the Ukrainian president attempted to entice a “favor” that might prove helpful in Trump’s campaign for reelection. Rather it was what the president did to get that favor: the refusal of the president to disburse congressionally authorized military assistance is a violation of law that strikes at the heart of Constitutional government.

Diminishing Returns: Calculated Misery in Air Travel
Managing such misery is hardly original, though Tim Wu of Columbia Law School can be credited for giving a good overview of it when writing in 2014 for The New Yorker. “Here’s the thing: in order for fees to work, there needs to be something worth paying to avoid. That necessitates, at some level, a strategy that can be described as ‘calculated misery’. Basic service, without fees, must be sufficiently degraded in order to make people want to pay to escape it. And that’s where the suffering begins.”

Who Is an Indian?
By Madhav Khosla
. . . it is worth asking whether, as India’s founders felt, the ultimate solution will be found not in some ideal pact among communities but rather in a system where one is treated as an individual.

Republic at 70: How Ambedkar, Constituent Assembly dealt with the caste conundrum
By Madhav Khosla
It was one thing to argue for the eradication of caste, quite another to propose how it might be done. Here, as I argue in a new book India’s Founding Moment, we can locate two themes in Ambedkar’s thought. First, there was a sense that the protection to be granted to lower-caste groups would at least partly turn on the nature of the franchise that they had been granted. . . . The second theme was the belief that no constitutional schema could be silent on the question of caste.
