Professor Mead Participates in Chicago Law Review Issue on Criminal Activity Nuisance Laws

J_MEAD.jpgProfessor Joe Mead was invited to participate in a University of Chicago Law Review issue on criminal activity nuisance laws. Along with his student, Marissa Pappas, Professor Mead discussed their research that they published in the Cleveland State Law Review’s et cetera and in a widely read policy report. In their research, Professor Mead and Ms. Pappas found that dozens of Ohio cities have criminal activity nuisance ordinances that penalize residents for seeking police assistance. One of the most common reasons to receive a nuisance designation is for experiencing domestic violence.  The underlying research was co-authored by Professor Mead and Ms. Pappas, as well as Urban College professors Megan Hatch and Rosie Tighe, PhD student Kristi Andrasik, and C-M alumna Elizabeth Bonham.
