F. KREIMER Professor of Law delivered
“Technologies of Protest: Insurgent Social Movements and the First
Amendment in the Era of the Internet” at the 20 th Annual Edward V.
Sparer Conference on Social Movements and Law Reform at Penn Law School
in March. The article will appear in a forthcoming issue of the University
of Pennsylvania Law Review. Over the course of the last year he has
delivered a series of presentations on the constitutional law of the
contested presidential election. These included two ad hoc symposia
at the Law School, a presentation to a reunion of Penn Law’s international
alumni in April and on a panel hosted by the National Constitution
Center. He presented “Looking for Loopholes: The Supreme Court’s Assault
on Federal Power and Civil Rights Enforcement” at a CLE seminar sponsored
by the Public Interest Section of the Philadelphia Bar in June. Kreimer
served as co-counsel with the Womens’ Law Project and the Center for
Reproductive Law and Policy in Ferguson v. City of Charleston 121
S. Ct. 1281 (2001), which reversed the Fourth Circuit, and held a
decision by a municipal hospital, in consultation with local police,
to subject pregnant women to involuntary drug tests and to forward
positive results to prosecutors, violated the Fourth Amendment. At
the request of the Women’s Law Project, Kreimer authored an amicus
brief for In Adoption of RBF and RCF (67 MDa99 Pa. Super 2000) in
which a three-judge panel of the Superior Court, by a vote of 2-1
rejected the claims of a lesbian couple who sought to jointly adopt
the biological children of one of the partners. The Superior Court
granted rehearing en banc before which he argued the case in June.
The panel majority ruled against his argument in November In Re RBF
762 A.2d 739 (Pa. Super 2000); the Pennsylvania Supreme Court accepted
an appeal of the case. Kreimer continues to serve as co-counsel with
the ACLU in Unity 2000 v. City of Philadelphia (E.D.Pa. 2000), challenging
the city’s denial of parade permits pursuant to an “omnibus special
events permit” which reserved all public venues in the city of Philadelphia
for the use of the Republican National Convention. The city settled
the case by granting the requested permits.
