Arbitration Of Truth-In-Lending-Act Claims, Marshall E. Tracht Jan 2001

Arbitration Of Truth-In-Lending-Act Claims, Marshall E. Tracht

Articles & Chapters

In recent years, it has become increasingly common for lenders to include arbitration clauses in their consumer financing agreements. While federal law strongly supports the enforceability of arbitration provisions, there are a number of grounds on which their enforceability can be, and has been, challenged.

This article summarizes the state of the law on a number of major issues which have arisen in the attempt to use arbitration clauses in consumer financing agreements, focusing on Truth-in-Lending Act claims, including an analysis of the Supreme Court's recent decision in Green Tree Financial Corp. v. Randolph.

Patterns Of Lending To Low-Income And Minority Persons And Neighborhoods: The 1999 New York Metropolitan Area Lending Scorecard, Richard D. Marsico Jan 2001

Patterns Of Lending To Low-Income And Minority Persons And Neighborhoods: The 1999 New York Metropolitan Area Lending Scorecard, Richard D. Marsico

Articles & Chapters

This paper analyzes home mortgage lending patterns in the New York Metropolitan Area. It examines lending to four particular underserved populations: minority persons, predominantly minority neighborhoods; low-income persons; and low-income neighborhoods. The paper compares lending to these populations to lending to control groups and over time in order to evaluate whether the needs of the underserved populations are being met. The paper also analyzes the records of individual lenders at meeting the credit needs of those four populations and ranks the lenders accordingly. The paper also analyzes trends in subprime lending to these four populations.


Rights, Rights Of Action, And Remedies: An Integrated Approach, Donald H. Zeigler Jan 2001

Rights, Rights Of Action, And Remedies: An Integrated Approach, Donald H. Zeigler

Articles & Chapters

Traditionally, courts equated rights and remedies. Consequently, courts sought to provide remedies for the violation of statutory rights even if a statute did not contain detailed enforcement provisions. In the 1970s, however, the U.S. Supreme Court transformed what had been a unified inquiry into whether a statutory provision should be judicially enforceable into three distinct questions and developed separate criteria for deciding whether a statute should be read to create a right, imply a right of action, or provide a remedy. Rights, rights of action, and remedies are inextricably related. The Court's attempt to separate these inseparable concepts ...


A Constitutional Confluence: American ‘State Action’ Law And The Application Of South Africa’S Socioeconomic Rights Guarantees To Private Actors, Stephen Ellmann Jan 2001

A Constitutional Confluence: American ‘State Action’ Law And The Application Of South Africa’S Socioeconomic Rights Guarantees To Private Actors, Stephen Ellmann

Articles & Chapters

As constitutional protection of human rights expands around the world, the question of whether constitutional rights should protect people not only against state action but also against the conduct of private actors is once again timely. Few nations have so broadly, or so ambiguously, endorsed the application of constitutional guarantees to constrain private conduct (known outside the United States as "horizontality") as South Africa. The constitution approved in 1996 applies fully and without qualification to all "organs of state," and this term is defined in section 239 in potentially very broad terms, notably embracing "any other functionary or institution ... exercising ...

Re-Interpreting The Effect Of Rights: Career Narratives And The Americans With Disabilities Act, David Engel, Frank W. Munger Jan 2001

Re-Interpreting The Effect Of Rights: Career Narratives And The Americans With Disabilities Act, David Engel, Frank W. Munger

Articles & Chapters

This article examines how the employment rights guaranteed by the Americans

with Disabilities Act (ADA) affect the careers of individuals with disabilities. The

article draws on in-depth interviews with sixty adults who provided extended life

story narratives, describing early family and educational experiences and later

experiences with employment. Their detailed accounts offer insights into the

sometimes subtle role rights play in peoples lives and careers. Relatively few

rights violations actually lead to explicit or formal invocations of the law. The

effect of the ADA on careers can be profound but is primarily indirect or

symbolic. Moreover, other factors affect the ...
