Survival Of Rights Of Action After Corporate Merger, Michigan Law Review Dec 1979

Survival Of Rights Of Action After Corporate Merger, Michigan Law Review

Michigan Law Review

Once a corporation ceases to exist, most courts permit neither primary nor derivative suits to be brought in its name. If a merger precipitates that corporate demise, courts usually hold that standing to sue, like other assets of the "merged" corporation, passes to the surviving corporation. This Note ponders the merit of that rule of passage.

Section I categorizes the cases defining the rule of passage. Some courts have steadfastly adhered to the rule and denied standing to the merged corporation's shareholders. Other courts, fearing that the rule would preclude meritorious actions, have created exceptions allowing these shareholders to ...


Lawyering And Client Decisionmaking: Informed Consent And The Legal Profession, Mark Spiegel Nov 1979

Lawyering And Client Decisionmaking: Informed Consent And The Legal Profession, Mark Spiegel

Boston College Law School Faculty Papers

In this Article, Professor Spiegel examines the doctrine of informed consent as it relates to the legal profession. The Article first traces the development of the informed-consent doctrine and then considers the extent to which current legal doctrines and professional norms incorporate informed consent between lawyers and their clients. Professor Spiegel suggests that the predominant focus of informed consent is on a lawyer’s power to bind his client vis-à-vis third parties and advocates for the development of an informed-consent doctrine that accounts for the interests of all parties involved. Professor Spiegel concludes with a discussion of the application of ...

Finally, Part III examines the possibilities for multinational agreements prohibiting bribery.


The Constitutional Rights Of Corporations Revisited: Social And Political Expression And The Corporation After First Nationial Bank V. Bellotti, Charles R.T. O'Kelley Aug 1979

The Constitutional Rights Of Corporations Revisited: Social And Political Expression And The Corporation After First Nationial Bank V. Bellotti, Charles R.T. O'Kelley

Scholarly Works

The Supreme Court has addressed only a few occasions the extent to which corporations enjoy those constitutional rights so fundamental to private citizens. In this article Professor O'Kelley discusses the inherent difficulty in applying familiar constitutional principles to corporations and examines those cases in which the Supreme Court has either extended or denied to corporations various constitutional rights. Finding that two underlying conceptual doctrines -- the Field rational and the associational rationale -- have guided the Court in previous decisions in this area, he then applies these doctrines in an analysis of the recent Supreme Court decision in First National Bank ...

A New Look At The Section 119 Meals And Lodging Exclusion, Steven Luby Apr 1979

A New Look At The Section 119 Meals And Lodging Exclusion, Steven Luby

West Virginia Law Review

One of the most problematic areas of income tax law has been the excludability of various employee fringe benefits from taxable income. This article examines the appropriate tax treatment of one type of fringe benefit-meals furnished by an employer to his employee. Prior to 1954 the excludability of the value of meals furnished by an employer was dependent upon whether the factual circumstances of the case satisfied a "convenience of the employer" rule developed by administrative rulings and case law. In 1954 Congress attempted to end the confusion surrounding the excludability of meals furnished by an employer by enacting section ...


Book Reviews: Two Cheers For Capitalism / Does Freedom Work?, Henry Aaron Apr 1979

Book Reviews: Two Cheers For Capitalism / Does Freedom Work?, Henry Aaron

Vanderbilt Law Review

Although Kristol's book is vastly better than Devine's--both in style and in content--the two books suffer from a common short-coming. Kristol sees a central institution of modern capitalism--the corporation-under aggressive attack, and seeks to defend it. One may disagree with his appraisal of the risks, and resent his tendency to tar all critics with the inanities of the most extreme, but he has a strong case to make-that the rise of modern American capitalism has been a magnificent success story. This success has required an uneasy cooperation between free-market institutions and collective restraints and modifications of market outcomes ...

U.S. Supreme Court Briefs

German Merger Control: A European Approach To Anticompetitive Takeovers, Rolf Belke, W. David Braun Jan 1979

German Merger Control: A European Approach To Anticompetitive Takeovers, Rolf Belke, W. David Braun

Northwestern Journal of International Law & Business

European free-market countries recently have begun to enact more laws regulating mergers and joint-ventures, with Germany at the forefront. In this article, Messrs. Belke and Braun intensively analyze the German merger control law, including the criteria that necessitate a report to the German Cartel Office, its application of the substantive merger control rules, and possible exceptions to an anti-merger ruling. They also explore the impact of the German law on international mergers and joint-ventures. Finally, they discuss in detail the first two German Supreme Court decisions that construed the substantive rules and contrast them with similar American cases.


The Effects Of United States Antitrust Laws On The International Operations Of American Firms, Melvin Schwechter, Richard Schepard Jan 1979

The Effects Of United States Antitrust Laws On The International Operations Of American Firms, Melvin Schwechter, Richard Schepard

Northwestern Journal of International Law & Business

United States antitrust laws increasingly have affected the international activities of U.S. corporations. The business community maintains that these laws have hurt international operations. In this article, Messrs. Schwechter and Schepard consider five major areas of concern to American businessmen: potential antitrust attacks upon licensing agreements, use of the foreign sovereign compulsion doctrine as an antitrust defense, subject matter jurisdiction and discovery, application of the "rule of reason" to international joint ventures, and the multifaceted nature of antitrust enforcement. They then discuss the Justice Department's response to the business community and propose several recommendations that should help United ...
