Evidence--Privileged Communications--The Attorney-Client Privilege In The Corporate Setting: A Suggested Approach, Michigan Law Review Dec 1970

Evidence--Privileged Communications--The Attorney-Client Privilege In The Corporate Setting: A Suggested Approach, Michigan Law Review

Michigan Law Review

This Note will first review the development of the personal attorney-client privilege and the extent to which the term "client" has been expanded for use with that privilege. Then, the development of the corporate attorney-client privilege will be examined with an eye toward isolating the tests that the courts have used to define the extent of the term "client." Finally, with the results of these examinations in mind, an approach will be suggested that, if adopted by the courts, could effectively eliminate the confusion that presently exists with regard to the scope of the attorney-client privilege in the corporate setting.

Corporations—Community Property: Non-Tax Aspects Of The Washington Professional Service Corporation Act.—Ch. 122, Laws Of 1969, Now Codified As Rcw Ch. 18.100 (1969), Anon

Washington Law Review

The purpose of Washington's Professional Service Corporation Act is to provide for the incorporation of an individual or group of individuals to render professional services. Since organizations of professional people under state professional corporation acts will be considered corporations for federal income tax purposes, this development offers potential tax advantages to professional persons who choose to incorporate their practices. However, the Washington statute also raises certain non-tax issues that must be resolved by professional persons seeking to incorporate. Since the tax issues have received extensive and eminent treatment elsewhere, this Note will focus on the less-discussed non-tax issues, and ...

Controlling The Controllers In Parent-Subsidiary Relations, James C. Bruno May 1970

Controlling The Controllers In Parent-Subsidiary Relations, James C. Bruno

University of Michigan Journal of Law Reform

This article will examine the rights and responsibilities of a party in control of a corporation. The discussion of these rights and responsibilities focuses principally on the law of Michigan. However, passages on policy, discussion of the development of relevant Michigan law, and recommendations for changes in the law are pertinent to the general problem-area of parent-subsidiary relations encountered in all jurisdictions.

Privileges And Immunities Of Non-Profit Organizations, Gerard D. Dimarco, Ira O. Kane Jan 1970

Privileges And Immunities Of Non-Profit Organizations, Gerard D. Dimarco, Ira O. Kane

Cleveland State Law Review

"And now abideth, faith home and charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity." This unsubtle reference to the word charity describes superficially the field of non-profit or not-for-profit corporation law. The objective of this paper is not to delve into the intricacies and complexities of the non-profit area, but rather to make manifest a few of the many privileges and immunities granted to non-profit corporations.


Non-Profit Types, Uses, And Abuses: 1970, Howard L. Oleck Jan 1970

Non-Profit Types, Uses, And Abuses: 1970, Howard L. Oleck

Cleveland State Law Review

American society long has consisted, to an extraordinary extent, of voluntary associations of persons and organizations not-for-profit, but for the public good (pro bono publico). No other nation in the world even approaches the United States in number and activity of non-profit organizations. These organizations are based on the characteristic American tendency to form groups (to associate themselves) voluntarily, for the accomplishment of social, religious, educational, fraternal, economic, and other purposes. Americans are the greatest "joiners" in the world. American non-profit organizations, generally speaking, are a magnificent part of the society, despite the disturbing growth of abuses among them.


Organization And Operation Of Non-Profit Corporations - Some General Considerations, Robert S. Pasley Jan 1970

Organization And Operation Of Non-Profit Corporations - Some General Considerations, Robert S. Pasley

Cleveland State Law Review

To come now to my assigned topic, I propose to discuss some of the more general aspects of non-profit corporations under the following headings: Definitions, Purposes and Powers, Formation, Finance, Members. My observations will be based principally on the Model Non-profit Corporation Act and the recently enacted New York Not-for-Profit Corporation Law. The former has been adopted in some six or seven states and parts of it have been enacted in four other states.


State Administration Of Charities, Richard E. Friedman Jan 1970

State Administration Of Charities, Richard E. Friedman

Cleveland State Law Review

My remarks will be limited to state administration of the charitable trusts and charitable organizations. Charities are quasi-public in nature. They perform many valuable services to the community which may otherwise be performed by governmental agencies. Because of these high public purposes charitable organizations are granted special treatment in terms of tax exemptions, and tax deductions for contributions. The definition of charity gleaned from case law is very broad, and in recent years the definition has tended to become even broader. Virtually any undertaking which may benefit the public can fall under the very broad umbrella of charities.


Federal Taxation And Non-Profit Organizations, Marcus Schoenfeld Jan 1970

Federal Taxation And Non-Profit Organizations, Marcus Schoenfeld

Cleveland State Law Review

The Revenue Act of 1969 is one of the greatest overall changes in the revenue laws since the introduction of the federal income tax . Perhaps the most extensive changes were made in the area of tax-exempt organizations. Only some of these changes were within of the topic of this presentation, and some of the other changes in the "charitable" area merit great discussion-for example charitable remainder trusts. Even the topics discussed herein, of necessity were discussed briefly due to lack of time and Regulations. The full the 1969 Act on non-profit organizations will not be apparent for quite some time ...

Foundations: Organization And Operation, Alexander Brodsky, Harry E. Brodsky Jan 1970

Foundations: Organization And Operation, Alexander Brodsky, Harry E. Brodsky

Cleveland State Law Review

As lawyers we can anticipate much activity in new litigation challenging foundations for misuse and abuse of their privileged existence.Foundations themselves must demonstrate their sense of responsibility to the public. The problem of accountability is of prime all philanthropic foundations.To accomplish these objectives we must, as Professor Sacks presented the question, search for the ideal methods for maintaining (calls) "the delicate balance of public ends and private means that ismbodied in the charitable foundation."

State Tax Exemptions Of Non-Profit Organizations, Carroll H. Sierk Jan 1970

State Tax Exemptions Of Non-Profit Organizations, Carroll H. Sierk

Cleveland State Law Review

Of the several different types of taxes which need to be discussed, perhaps the real property tax is the most important. The real exemption area currently seems to be where most of the action is, most of the legislative activity and most of the significant litigation. Of lesser importance is the personal property tax. With regard to sales and use taxes, we have two separate exemption areas. The first is that of sales totally exempt because made to charitable organizations. The second is that of sales exempt because made by non-profit organizations. The matter of income tax exemptions under the ...
