Minority Discounts And Control Premiums In Appraisal Proceedings, Richard A. Booth Marbury Research Professor Of Law Oct 2001

Minority Discounts And Control Premiums In Appraisal Proceedings, Richard A. Booth Marbury Research Professor Of Law

Faculty Scholarship

In a merger, a stockholder often has a statutory right of dissent and appraisal under which the stockholder may demand to be paid fair value exclusive of any gain or loss that may arise from the merger itself. Most courts and commentators agree that a dissenting stockholder should ordinarily receive a pro rata share of the fair value of the corporation without any discount simply because minority shares lack control. In several recent cases, the courts have indicated that a minority stockholder is thus entitled to a share of the control value of the corporation even though the merger does ...

"With Friends Like These ...": Toward A More Efficacious Response To Affinity-Based Securities And Investment Fraud, Lisa M. Fairfax Jun 2001

"With Friends Like These ...": Toward A More Efficacious Response To Affinity-Based Securities And Investment Fraud, Lisa M. Fairfax

Faculty Scholarship

This article highlights the increase in affinity fraud—securities and investment fraud targeting members of a particular racial or ethnic group perpetrated either by a member of that group or someone claiming to advance the groups’ interests. Affinity fraud differs from other forms of securities fraud because perpetrators establish their credibility and the credibility of their investment schemes by appealing to the trust that group members share, often promising that some of the invested funds will be used to assist the group’s church or ethnic community. This reliance on group trust and sense of community persuades otherwise cautious people ...

Transitional Justice In Afghanistan : Confronting Violations Of International Humanitarian And Human Rights Law, Peter G. Danchin Jan 2001

Transitional Justice In Afghanistan : Confronting Violations Of International Humanitarian And Human Rights Law, Peter G. Danchin

Faculty Scholarship

After more than two decades of war and foreign interventions, including the US-led military campaign following the 11 September 2001 terrorist attacks, Afghanistan has entered a period of transition and rebuilding. It thus joins a host of other countries—from South Africa to Sierra Leone to East Timor—which have sought in recent years to move from a repressive and violent past to a future based on democracy, the rule of law and respect for fundamental human rights. In this respect, Afghanistan presents one of the most confronting case studies for the field of ‘transitional justice’. This article considers the ...

From Lujan To Laidlaw: A Preliminary Model Of Environmental Standing, Maxwell L. Stearns Jan 2001

From Lujan To Laidlaw: A Preliminary Model Of Environmental Standing, Maxwell L. Stearns

Faculty Scholarship

In the short span of eight years, the Supreme Court has issued two seemingly opposite answers to the question of whether Congress has free reign to provide private citizens with standing to redress violations of federal environmental law, when those violations have not produced any discernible harm to the claimants. In his prior scholarship, Professor Maxwell Stearns has developed a model of standing based upon the theory of social choice, which focuses primarily upon constitutional standing rules. The recent doctrinal transformation from Lujan v. Defenders of Wildlife, to Friends of the Earth v. Laidlaw Environmental Services, Inc., has provided a ...
