The Next Los Angeles: The Struggle For A Livable City, Regina Freer, Robert Gottlieb, Mark Vallianatos, Peter Dreier Dec 2015

The Next Los Angeles: The Struggle For A Livable City, Regina Freer, Robert Gottlieb, Mark Vallianatos, Peter Dreier

Mark Vallianatos

While most historians, journalists, and filmmakers have focused on Los Angeles as a bastion of corporate greed, business boosterism, political corruption, cheap labor, exploited immigrants, and unregulated sprawl, The Next Los Angeles tells a different story: that of the reformers and radicals who have struggled for alternative visions of social and economic justice. In a new preface, the authors reflect on the gathering momentum of L.A.'s progressive movement, including the 2005 landslide victory of Antonio Villaraigosa as mayor.

Tracking Customer Search To Price Discriminate, Bart Wilson, Carey Deck Aug 2014

Tracking Customer Search To Price Discriminate, Bart Wilson, Carey Deck

Bart J Wilson

The electronic technologies of the Internet make it possible for sellers to track potential customers and discriminate between the informed and uninformed. In this article, we report an experiment that investigates the market impact of firms tracking customers and offering discriminatory prices based on search history. We find that consumers, on average, face the same prices when sellers have the ability to track customers and price discriminate as when sellers post a single price for all buyers. However, informed buyers receive lower prices when sellers can detect buyer search, whereas uninformed buyers receive lower prices when firms cannot track customers.

Not Dea'd Yet: Gonzalez V. Oregon, Charles Baron Aug 2013

Not Dea'd Yet: Gonzalez V. Oregon, Charles Baron

Charles H. Baron

On January 17, the Oregon Death with Dignity Act beat back yet another attempt on its life. In Gonzales v. Oregon, the U.S. Supreme Court (by a six-to-three vote) affirmed decisions of two lower federal courts and made permanent a 2001 injunction against federal prosecution of physicians who prescribe narcotics under the terms of the act. Media coverage of the decision both exaggerated and underplayed the decision’s significance.

El Pretendido Efecto Retroactivo De La Condición Cumplida, Patricio Lazo Dec 2006

El Pretendido Efecto Retroactivo De La Condición Cumplida, Patricio Lazo

Patricio Lazo

The topic of this article is the study of Roman sources of law, to the extent that they determine whether the condition which has been fulfilled could have had, or no, a retroactive effect, since some of those sources answer “yes, there was such a retroactive effect”, while others simply deny it. In examining those texts, the author assumes the methodological premise according to which Roman jurists were used to review the cases as decided by earlier jurists, in order, either to confirm the old jurisprudence, or to establish new and varying solutions to the problems. In that perspective, the ...

Intersectionality And Identity: Revisiting A Wrinkle In Title Vii, Bradley Areheart Nov 2006

Intersectionality And Identity: Revisiting A Wrinkle In Title Vii, Bradley Areheart

Bradley A. Areheart

This article revisits intersectionality, a way of postulating legal identity. Simply put, intersectionality acknowledges that one person’s identity can never be reduced to solely one characteristic, such as religion or sex. Rather, each person’s identity is constructed of the various intersections of ways one might describe oneself.

In the legal context, intersectionality has typically arisen in cases of employment discrimination, where those who theoretically could file a claim under more than protected category are forced to choose only one for their claim—for example, parsing one’s identity as either race or sex, even though a statute like ...


"Resolving The Foreshore And Seabed Dispute", Matthew S. R. Palmer Nov 2006

"Resolving The Foreshore And Seabed Dispute", Matthew S. R. Palmer

Matthew Palmer

There has been serious political and legal conflict in New Zealand in recent years between indigenous Maori claims of rights to the foreshore and seabed and the understandings of non-Maori New Zealanders. This book chapter analyses the political leadership provided in this conflict from 1997 to 2005. It applies an approach to leadership developed by Ronald Heifetz which emphasizes the importance of identifying and addressing the real issues underlying a conflict. Applying Heifetz's diagnostic to the foreshore and seabed conflict suggests that the absence of constitutional mechanisms for dealing with the relationships between the Crown, Maori and other New ...


Constitutional Realism About Constitutional Protection: Indigenous Rights Under A Judicialized And A Politicized Constitution, Matthew S. R. Palmer Nov 2006

Constitutional Realism About Constitutional Protection: Indigenous Rights Under A Judicialized And A Politicized Constitution, Matthew S. R. Palmer

Matthew Palmer

This article assesses the comparative effectiveness of constitutional protection of indigenous rights in Canada and New Zealand using a perspective of “constitutional realism”. The two constitutions offer a useful contrast of similar systems distinguished by distinctly contrasting directions over the past 25 years. The reality of Canada’s constitutional development has seen more power accrue to the judicial branch of government. The reality of New Zealand’s constitutional development has seen more power accrue to the political branches of government. The article considers the reality of the behavior of these branches of government in each jurisdiction in relation to indigenous ...


The Intrinsic Value Of Obeying A Law: Economic Analysis Of The Internal Viewpoint, Robert D. Cooter Nov 2006

The Intrinsic Value Of Obeying A Law: Economic Analysis Of The Internal Viewpoint, Robert D. Cooter

Robert Cooter

Economic theory distinguishes sharply between what a person wants and what he can have. “Preferences” describe what a person wants, and “constraints” describe the limits of what he can have. The collision of preferences and constraints yields the choices that economists study. The meaning of both terms is broad and flexible. Preferences and constraints help to distinguish between the internal and external viewpoints that H. L. A. Hart made famous. The internal viewpoint concerns preferences to perform legal obligations. A person who prefers to obey a law is willing to give up something to perform his legal obligation. The preference ...

Restriction Of Tort Remedies And The Constraints Of Due Process: The Right To An Adequate Remedy, Tracy A. Thomas Nov 2006

Restriction Of Tort Remedies And The Constraints Of Due Process: The Right To An Adequate Remedy, Tracy A. Thomas

Tracy A. Thomas

In the recent proliferation of tort reform statutes, the dangerous clause of remedial jurisdiction stripping has sneaked into the law. Reminiscent of federal statutes in other areas of the law, these jurisdictional provisions strip courts of all power to award punitive or non-pecuniary damages in excess of legislative limits. Many states have acted to restrict frivolous claims and excessive recoveries by cabining “McTorts” and “runaway juries.” Regardless of the merits of these policy questions, the use of the simple expedient of remedial jurisdiction to accomplish these purposes raises significant concerns. By arbitrarily restricting an individual’s right to a meaningful ...

New Urbanist Zoning For Dummies, Michael E Lewyn Nov 2006

New Urbanist Zoning For Dummies, Michael E Lewyn

Michael E Lewyn

This article compares the SmartCode (a model New Urbanist zoning code) to conventional pro-sprawl zoning codes, and concludes that in some respects, the SmartCode is actually more respectful of property rights than is conventional zoning.


Sharing And Anti-Sharing In Teams, Robert D. Cooter, Roland Kirstein Nov 2006

Sharing And Anti-Sharing In Teams, Robert D. Cooter, Roland Kirstein

Robert Cooter

Compared to budget-balanced Sharing contracts, Anti-Sharing may improve the efficiency of teams. The Anti-Sharer collects a fixed payment from all team members; he receives the actual output and pays out its value to them. If a team members becomes Anti-Sharer, he will be unproductive in equilibrium. Hence, internal Anti-Sharing fails to yield the first-best outcome. Anti-Sharing is more likely to yield a higher team profit than Sharing, the larger the team, the curvature of the production function, or the marginal effort cost. Sharing is more likely to be better, the greater the marginal product, the cross-partials of the production function ...


Anti-Sharing As A Theory Of Partnerships And Firms, Robert D. Cooter, Roland Kirstein Nov 2006

Anti-Sharing As A Theory Of Partnerships And Firms, Robert D. Cooter, Roland Kirstein

Robert Cooter

Anti-Sharing may improve the efficiency of teams. The Anti-Sharer collects a fixed payment from all team members; he receives the actual output and pays out its value to them. However, if a team members assumes the role of an "internal" Anti-Sharer, he will be unproductive in equilibrium. Hence, internal Anti-Sharing fails to yield the first-best outcome. External Anti-Sharing may induce the team members to choose efficient effort. The paper presents possible applications of Anti-Sharing: while internal Anti-Sharing may provide an explanation for the existence of senior (or managing) partners, external Anti-Sharing leads to a new theory of the incorporated firm.
