Robot Cars vs. Pedestrians

Can we all just get along?

Robot Cars vs. Pedestrians

As Congress and state legislatures grapple with the legal and safety issues involving autonomous vehicles on public thoroughfares, a recent Wall Street Journal article entitled "Pedestrian Peril in the Digital Age” discusses the alarming trend in the number of pedestrian traffic deaths.

Over the last ten years, pedestrian deaths have risen by 27%, while other traffic-related deaths have largely fallen. Both drivers and pedestrians are often distracted by cell phones, and alcohol- and drug-impaired driving continue to be problematic. The advent of “robot cars” would seemingly promise to lead to a reduction in the number of pedestrian deaths, since machines cannot be distracted or drive drunk and will be programmed to anticipate and avoid pedestrians.

    A bankruptcy trustee has the right to liquidate any property of a Chapter 7 Debtor subject to claimed exemptions and liens. Does this right extend to a membership interest in an LLC where the sole member files bankruptcy? The Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of Michigan addressed this issue recently in In re Hopkins, Bankr. W.D. Mich. (Feb. 2, 2012).
