Transsexuals who were born male, but have had genital reconstruction surgery, are placed at a higher risk of sexual assault, and perhaps even rape, if they are required to use showers and locker rooms corresponding to the gender they were “assigned at birth,” argues public interest law professor John Banzhaf of the GWU Law School which is experimenting with a solution to the transgender-restroom problem. - April 25, 2016
Virginia’s legislature has just authorized the use of the electric chair when lethal-injection drugs aren’t available due to scarcities and sales restrictions caused by death penalty opponents, but many claim the language is vague and would invite a whole new round of litigation, reports the Washington Post.

The George Washington University Law School has opened the first coed multi-user restroom designed to help females who might otherwise have to wait on long lines for the women's restroom, and transgender people who will no longer have to choose which is the least inappropriate restroom to use given the dichotomy between their anatomical gender and their newly-assumed gender identity, says public interest law professor John Banzhaf. - January 29, 2016

John Banzhaf’s legal complaint... - March 29, 2015
Arizona's botched execution, the third in a row using lethal injections according to numerous press reports, has raised questions of how the death penalty can best be administered, especially with manufacturers prohibiting the use of their drugs for such a purpose, and reported restrictions on certain injectible drugs used in executions. - July 28, 2014
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety [IIHS] recently released a list of "safe" cars that parents should buy for teens, and tips for making sure they really are safe, but it failed to disclose one simple step concerned parents can take which would avoid more needless highway deaths among young people than all their other recommendations, says public interest law professor John Banzhaf, who has written extensively on auto safety. - July 23, 2014
As U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill [D-MO] prepares to release results of a survey about college sexual assaults, and then federal legislation based upon her survey, there may be reason to believe that a new innovative solution involving a new entity may be preferable to trying to make universities only marginally better at handling sex crimes, says public interest law professor John Banzhaf. - July 10, 2014
A detailed study of campus sexual assaults suggests that they are costing colleges and universities tens of millions of dollars, and the huge costs are almost certainly going to balloon as the Administration continues to encourage educational institutions to convict more students, notes public interest law professor John Banzhaf, who was one of the first to point out the growing number of male students fighting back by going to court. - July 02, 2014

Although news.google indicates that most attention to the proposed tobacco regulations the FDA just announced focused on its limited regulation of e-cigarettes, a largely overlooked sleeper issue is the health agency's apparent willingness, as set forth in its notice, to exempt from all regulation the tobacco product apparently most used by and closely associated with so-called "Fat Cat Smokers," says public interest law professor John Banzhaf. - April 28, 2014
Although the Food and Drug Administration [FDA] has itself reported that e-cigarettes pose “acute health risks” which “cannot seriously be questioned” because they contain “toxic chemicals,” and that the devices also “present a serious risk of addicting new users, including children,” the rules they have proposed to regulate them have major omissions, says public interest law professor John Banzhaf. - April 26, 2014
