Doping Out The Capitalization Rules After Indopco, John W. Lee

Faculty Publications

In this article, Lee provides guidance for Treasury and the IRS (in their promised clarification of application of INDOPCO).

The article also sets forth models for (a) amortizing as. a freestanding deferred charge long-lived substantial self-created intangibles such as business expansion costs, including employee training costs, and (b) expensing, or perhaps better, amortizing currently less substantial or regularly recurring, steady state self-created intangibles (such as repairs and advertising, respectively).

A court may enter such an order if it finds that the defendant is "substantially unfit" to serve as a corporate executive; the Act, however, does not define "substantial unfitness." In this Article Professor Jayne Barnard provides a framework for defining this term and identifying the defendants to which the Remedies Act should apply. Professor Barnard begins ...

The Silenced Majority: Martin V. Wilks And The Legislative Response, Susan Grover

Faculty Publications

An American worker finds himself disadvantaged by an employer's affirmative action program. The worker heads for the courthouse, reverse discrimination complaint in hand. Will he be allowed to sue?
