Dempsey on Negligence Liability

Michelle Madden Dempsey  (Villanova University School of Law) has posted The Object of Criminal Responsibility on SSRN. Here is the abstract:

This short essay critiques Larry Alexander and Kim Ferzan’s argument against negligence liability, focusing in particular on the authors’ characterization of the object of criminal responsibility (i.e., that for which an actor is held criminally responsible) and the impact this (mis)characterization has on our intuitions regarding negligence liability.
