Review Of Jesse Dukeminier And James E. Krier, Property (4th Edition 1998), Andrew P. Morriss Dec 1998

Review Of Jesse Dukeminier And James E. Krier, Property (4th Edition 1998), Andrew P. Morriss

Faculty Scholarship

Professors Dukeminier and Krier's property casebook is reputed to be the market leader in Property casebooks; I have heard estimates that it has as much as a fifty percent market share. This position is well-deserved-the casebook is thorough, comprehensive, well-written, error free, and, a significant feature for new teachers, has the best teacher's manual I have encountered for any casebook in any subject. IBM once sold computers because "No one ever got fired for choosing IBM." An analogous claim can be made for this casebook-no one ever provoked significant faculty or student unrest by choosing Dukeminier and Krier ...


The Shareholder Primacy Norm, D. Gordon Smith Dec 1998

The Shareholder Primacy Norm, D. Gordon Smith

Faculty Scholarship

Corporate directors have a fiduciary duty to make decisions in the best interests of the shareholders. This aspect of fiduciary duty is often called the shareholder primacy norm. Legal scholars generally assume that the shareholder primacy norm is a major factor considered by boards of directors of publicly traded corporations in making ordinary business decisions and that changing the shareholder primacy norm would have an effect on the substance of those decisions. This Article challenges this view and argues that the shareholder primacy norm was never equipped to mediate conflicts between shareholders and nonshareholder constituencies of a corporation. The origins ...


Impact Statements: Regulations Leave Room For Delays In Seqra Proceedings, John R. Nolon Dec 1998

Impact Statements: Regulations Leave Room For Delays In Seqra Proceedings, John R. Nolon

Pace Law Faculty Publications

SEQRA, the New York State Environmental Quality Review Act, creates a process whereby public actions are reviewed with the intent to mitigate adverse environmental impacts. The SEQRA process has several flexible time constraints, which through negotiation, may be extended. Issues often arise due to the discrepancies between SEQRA’s imposed time limits and the time limits imposed on land use boards to make determinations about proposed projects. The question of which time limits apply was determined in Sun Beach Real Estate Corp. v. Anderson Beach. In that case, the court held that decisions, such as site plan approval deadlines, do ...

Nuisance Protection Law Unconstitutional, Neil E. Harl, Charles F. Curtiss Dec 1998

Nuisance Protection Law Unconstitutional, Neil E. Harl, Charles F. Curtiss

Integrated Crop Management News

In late September, the Iowa Supreme Court declared unanimously that an Iowa statute providing protection against nuisance suits for agricultural operations is "flagrantly" unconstitutional. The lawsuit involved the Iowa agricultural areas statute that allows counties to designate agricultural areas of at least 300 contiguous acres. Farming operations conducted within such a designated area are not subject to nuisance lawsuits if they are operated properly.

Brief Of Intervenor, Women’S Legal Education And Action Fund (Leaf), Ferrel V. Ontario, Laura Spitz

Faculty Scholarship

The issues in this appeal are whether Bill 8, An Act to Repeal Job Quotas and Restore Merit-Based Employment Practices in Ontario ("Bill 8''), contravenes section 15(1) of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms (the "Charter''), and, if so, whether the contravention is justified under section I of the Charter. This brief reviews the Government's repeal of the Federal Emplyment Equity Act (EEA). This repeal impairs designated groups to the greatest extent possible by removing all of the mechanisms which are necessary to remedy systemic discrimination in employment. Additionally, where discrimination is effected by the wholesale repeal ...

Brief Amici Curiae Of Intellectual Property Professors In Support Of Petitoner, Thomas G. Field Jr., John F. Duffy, Craig Allen Nard

Law Faculty Scholarship

Congress enacted the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) in 1946 as a comprehensive statute to regulate the field of federal administrative law. In holding that the PTO Board of Patent Appeals and Interferences is not subject to the standards of judicial review set forth in the APA, the [Zurko] decision isolates patent law from the rest of administrative law and undermines the APA’s goal of achieving consistency and uniformity in federal administrative law.
