GMLR’s Executive Editor Tim Geverd to Have Two Articles Published

Tim Geverd has had two writings selected for publication in two different law journals.  Geverd, who currently serves as George Mason Law Review’s Executive Editor, will see the first of his articles, ”Failure to Warn: The National Hockey League Could Pay the Price for Its Pursuit of Profit at the Expense of Player Safety,”  published in the New York State Bar Association Entertainment, Arts and Sports Law Journal in summer 2013.

“The paper analogizes the NHL’s pursuit of profit at the expense of player safety to the ‘false controversy’ that cigarette companies propagated regarding the addictive nature of cigarettes,” Geverd explains. “In doing so, the paper aims to distinguish the general risks associated with playing contact sports, that participants assume when they play, from particular risks—such as the long-term effects of traumatic brain injuries—that participants do not necessarily assume simply by playing the game. The paper’s ultimate argument is that the NHL could be held liable for failure to adequately warn participants of these particular risks.”

Geverd’s second article will appear in the Veterans Law Review in 2014 and is titled “Of Locke and Valor: Why the Supreme Court’s Decision on United States v. Alvarez Does not Foreclose Congress’s Ability to Protect the Property Rights of Medal of Honor Recipients.” The article discusses the history and importance of military honors, in particular the Medal of Honor, and argues that bona fide Medal recipients earn a property right in the honor and reputation the Medal represents. The article also argues that Congress can do a better job of constitutionally protecting those interests by prohibiting false claim to the Medal in a manner analogous to the constitutionally permissible common law prohibition on commercially appropriating another’s name, likeness, and reputation.

The team at George Mason Law Review would like to congratulate Geverd for his outstanding work in the legal scholarship community.
