The Entrapment Defense And Procedural Issues: Burden Of Proof, Questions Of Law And Fact, Inconsistent Defenses, Paul Marcus

Faculty Publications

Paul Marcus has produced an extremely thorough article on the intriguing and complex defense of entrapment. After analyzing the subjective and objective approaches to the defense, the author turns to the infrequently addressed question of evidence on predisposition. Included here are the recent ABSCAM cases.

Finally, the author explores the vagaries of inconsistent defenses and, on the whole, provides academics and practitioners with a refreshing and useful guide to some of the most important questions involving entrapment.

Capital Gains Exception To The House's "General Utilities" Repeal: Further Indigestions From Overly Processed "Corn Products", John W. Lee Mar 1986

Capital Gains Exception To The House's "General Utilities" Repeal: Further Indigestions From Overly Processed "Corn Products", John W. Lee

Faculty Publications

In this article, Lee first describes the mechanics and tax effects of cost basis corporate acquisitions and analyzes why current tax rules favor such acquisitions over carryover basis acquisition (e .g., tax-free mergers); then he describes the House's proposed repeal in HR 3838 of the General Utilities doctrine in current sections 336-338, focusing on the continued exemption for long-term capital gains of a closely held active business corporation. This sets the stage for analysis of the Corn Products doctrine, which under an "integral asset" reading would deny the exemption to most appreciated operating assets, surely not the intent of ...


Congressional Standing To Sue: Whose Vote Is This, Anyway?, R. Lawrence Dessem Jan 1986

Congressional Standing To Sue: Whose Vote Is This, Anyway?, R. Lawrence Dessem

Faculty Publications

The article is divided into three major sections. Section I traces the development of a separate doctrine of “congressional standing.” It examines the doctrine's development from the Supreme Court's initial consideration of legislative standing through the current opinions of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. Section II then analyzes three possible theories of congressional injury and standing. Derivative, representative, and third-party standing theories are all rejected as a basis for congressional standing. While rejecting the suggestion that congressmen possess a personal interest in “their” votes sufficient to constitute the “distinct and palpable ...


Five Views Of Church-State Relations In Contemporary American Thought, Carl H. Esbeck Jan 1986

Five Views Of Church-State Relations In Contemporary American Thought, Carl H. Esbeck

Faculty Publications

Views concerning the appropriate relationship between church and state are rapidly becoming almost as numerous as America's religious sects. The Constitution's treatment of religious liberty, thought by many to be a matter long settled, has now erupted into a many-sided debate. Not only lawyers, judges and legal commentators are involved; historians and sociologists, theologians and ecclesiastics, political theorists and statesmen also participate in the debate. It is part of a much larger struggle over a redefinition, or for some a reclamation, of the role of religion in American public life. At times this debate focuses on discrete environments ...


Remedying Insurers' Bad Faith Contract Performance: A Reassessment, Robert H. Jerry Ii Jan 1986

Remedying Insurers' Bad Faith Contract Performance: A Reassessment, Robert H. Jerry Ii

Faculty Publications

This article examines the implications of the differing remedies provided by tort and contract law. Part I describes the traditional major duties owed by an insurer to an insured and outlines the remedies currently provided in most jurisdictions for the breach of these duties. Part II gives special attention to the insurer's implied duty of good faith and fair dealing; it reviews the historical origins of the duty and describes the alternative ways to categorize it. Part III argues that the duty of good faith and fair dealing should be treated as a contract duty, but that courts should ...


Tort Claims Against Churches And Ecclesiastical Officers: The First Amendment Considerations, Carl H. Esbeck Jan 1986

Tort Claims Against Churches And Ecclesiastical Officers: The First Amendment Considerations, Carl H. Esbeck

Faculty Publications

Federal and state courts are increasingly confronted with the unenviable task of giving legal definition to matters affecting relations between religion and government.' Many of the lawsuits pitting church against state are surface manifestations of a more fundamental disintegration of an American public philosophy.

A Policy Analysis Of Fee-Shifting Rules Under The Internal Revenue Code, Gary Myers, Richard L. Schmalbeck Jan 1986

A Policy Analysis Of Fee-Shifting Rules Under The Internal Revenue Code, Gary Myers, Richard L. Schmalbeck

Faculty Publications

Until recently, the costs of litigating federal tax cases were borne exclusively by the parties who incurred them, regardless of whether the government or the taxpayer prevailed in the litigation. This practice reflects the application to tax disputes of the ‘American rule’ against fee shifting. Although the American rule continues to be predominant in the tax area, it has been modified in important respects. An explicit fee-reimbursement rule, benefiting prevailing taxpayers in cases in which the government is found to have acted unreasonably, was added to the Internal Revenue Code (IRC) by the Tax Equity and Fiscal Responsibility Act of ...


California's Foreclosure Statutes: Some Proposals For Reform, Cynthia Mertens Jan 1986

California's Foreclosure Statutes: Some Proposals For Reform, Cynthia Mertens

Faculty Publications

Spurred by the harsh economics of the Great Depression, California enacted several statutes designed to protect pledgors of real property from unfair and often ruinous deficiency judgments. This legislation includes Code of Civil Procedure sections 580a,the fair value section, 580b,the purchase-money anti-deficiency statute, 580d; the nonjudicial foreclosure anti-deficiency statute, and 726, the "one-action" rule. Three decades of judicial interpretation, however, have created a body of case law which fails to advance the legislative purposes upon which the courts purportedly base their decisions.

The time has come for California to substantially revise its Depression-era anti-deficiency legislation in order to ...


When Lawyer And Client Meet: Observations Of Interviewing And Counseling Behavior In The Consumer Bankruptcy Law Office, Gary Neustadter Jan 1986

When Lawyer And Client Meet: Observations Of Interviewing And Counseling Behavior In The Consumer Bankruptcy Law Office, Gary Neustadter

Faculty Publications

What happens when lawyer and client first meet? How do they talk, how do they listen, what do they say, and what do they do? The answers to these questions are generated, and then lost, in thousands of law offices daily. There is thus a treasure of information, but it is mostly hidden from our view by legal barriers that protect privacy and confidentiality and by other barriers, economic, psychological, and logistical, that inhibit or preclude third party observation of lawyer-client contact. This Article reports an exploratory journey in search of that treasure, a journey into six law offices in ...
