Free Speech And Compulsory Union Fees: An Analysis Of Lehnert V. Ferris Faculty Association, Barbara J. Fick Jan 1990

Free Speech And Compulsory Union Fees: An Analysis Of Lehnert V. Ferris Faculty Association, Barbara J. Fick

Journal Articles

This article previews the Supreme Court case Lehnert v. Ferris Faculty Ass'n, 500 U.S. 507 (1991). The author expected the case to address the line between those types of activities that effectuate a union's duties as collective bargaining representative, and thus can be charged to non-members, and those activities that are not related to collective bargaining and therefore are not chargeable to objecting non-members.


Foreword: Debunking Rico's Myriad Myths, G. Robert Blakey Jan 1990

Foreword: Debunking Rico's Myriad Myths, G. Robert Blakey

Journal Articles

Foreword: In January of 1931, Warner Brothers-First National released a film entitled Little Caesar. Based on a book by W. R. Burnett, the movie, loosely portraying the life of Alphonse Capone, starred Edward G. Robinson in its title role, Caesar Enrico Bandello, also known as "Little Caesar," or “Rico.” Robinson, as he lies dying, utters one of the most famous end lines in film history: “Mother of Mercy–is this the end of Rico?” Likewise, no one who looks at this Symposium–or others7-or the seemingly inevitable march of RICO reform (chloroform?) legislation through Congress–or the endless efforts of ...

Symposium: Law And The Continuing Enterprise: Perspectives On Rico: Foreword, G. Robert Blakey Jan 1990

Symposium: Law And The Continuing Enterprise: Perspectives On Rico: Foreword, G. Robert Blakey

Journal Articles

The past twenty years witnessed a sea change in the way that organized crime is investigated, prosecuted, and sanctioned, both criminally and civilly. RICO allowed the law to catch up with the rest of society. In the twentieth century, organizations, not people, control the important elements of society such as: government, commerce and labor. Until the passage of RICO, organizations as such were seldom the fcus of the law-outside of, perhaps, the antitrust statutes. This is no longer true.

RICO, however, is not limited to the activities of traditional Mafia families. It does not matter to a racketeering victim what ...

The Legal Status Of Agro-Industrial Units And Their Relations With The Owners And Tillers Of Land, Conrad Kellenberg Jan 1990

The Legal Status Of Agro-Industrial Units And Their Relations With The Owners And Tillers Of Land, Conrad Kellenberg

Journal Articles

National and state laws have tended in a variety of ways to encourage the creation of agro-industrial enterprises, whose practices are not environmentally sustainable. These laws, at the same time, have discouraged the family farm. Agro-industrial enterprises are increasingly characterized by vertical integration of companies at two or more steps in food production and merchandising, processing, canning, warehousing, transporting, wholesaling and retailing. In addition, there is a fair amount of horizontal integration of companies at every step. In recent years mergers have led to a movement towards oligopoly in the United States food business. These developments have already had discernable ...

Allocating Risks And Suffering: Some Hidden Traps, John M. Finnis Jan 1990

Allocating Risks And Suffering: Some Hidden Traps, John M. Finnis

Journal Articles

The economic analysis of which Adam Smith is a principal founder is helpful in practical reasoning about problems of justice precisely insofar as it systematically calls attention to the side-effects of individual choices and actions and behavior. Still, it would be a mistake to conclude that we need only a more adequate account of the benefits and burdens up for distribution or allocation by those responsible for the common good or general fate. We need also to bear in mind what Smith did not forget and what economics does not comprehend, the requirements of commutative justice. To see this, we ...

Ancillary Discovery To Prove Denial Of Justice, Roger P. Alford Jan 1990

Ancillary Discovery To Prove Denial Of Justice, Roger P. Alford

Journal Articles

Today foreign investors have a new and powerful weapon to challenge denial of justice. Bilateral investment treaties (BITs) require “fair and equitable treatment” consistent with customary international law, including “the obligation not to deny justice in criminal, civil, or administrative adjudicatory proceedings in accordance with the principles of due process embodied in the principle legal systems of the world.” Those treaties also create a private right of action, empowering investors with the right to initiate international arbitral proceedings directly against the host State. BITs provide the substance and the means for the effective review of judicial behavior. These treaties do ...

An Analysis Of The Myths That Bolster Efforts To Rewrite Rico And The Various Proposals For Reform: Mother Of God - Is This The End Of Rico?, George Robert Blakey Professor, Thomas A. Perry Jan 1990

An Analysis Of The Myths That Bolster Efforts To Rewrite Rico And The Various Proposals For Reform: Mother Of God - Is This The End Of Rico?, George Robert Blakey Professor, Thomas A. Perry

Journal Articles

In 1970 Congress enacted the Organized Crime Control Act, Title IX of which is known as the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, or RICO. At first, the Department of Justice moved slowly to use RICO in criminal prosecutions. Today, RICO is the prosecutor's tool of choice in organized crime, political corruption, white-collar crime, terrorism, and neo-Nazi and anti-Semitic hate group prosecutions. The Department of Justice also is implementing the civil provisions of the Act. The private bar did not begin to bring civil RICO suits until about 1975. When it did, a firestorm of controversy broke out, and ...

Natural Law And Legal Reasoning, John M. Finnis Jan 1990

Natural Law And Legal Reasoning, John M. Finnis

Journal Articles

Much academic theory about legal reasoning greatly exaggerates the extent to which reason can settle what is greater good or lesser evil, and minimizes the need for authoritative sources which, so far as they are clear and respect the few absolute moral rights and duties, are to be respected as the only rational basis for judicial reasoning and decision, in relation to the countless issues which do not directly involve those absolute rights and duties. A natural law theory in the classical tradition makes no pretense that natural reason can determine the one right answer to those countless questions which ...


Concluding Reflections, John M. Finnis Jan 1990

Concluding Reflections, John M. Finnis

Journal Articles

A symposium to which one person contributes three extended papers is no unmixed pleasure for readers. This third contribution of mine will interest only those curious to see my response to other symposiasts' comments on my earlier efforts (in the symposium and elsewhere). To enable this curiosity to be satisfied as costlessly as possible, I divide these concluding reflections by authors rather than themes, though with priorities suggested by themes rather than authors.
