Extensión De Quiebra Y Socios Ilimitadamente Responsables, Carlos Molina Sandoval Dec 2003

Extensión De Quiebra Y Socios Ilimitadamente Responsables, Carlos Molina Sandoval

Carlos Molina Sandoval

La extensión de quiebra a los socios con responsabilidad ilimitada ha sido el típico e inveterado supuesto concebido ya desde la sanción del Cód. Com. (arts. 1530, Cód Com. de 1.880; 1384, Cód Com. de 1.889; 4, ley 4156; 6, ley 11.719, y 164, ley 19.551). En esencia, importa la declaración de quiebra de los socios con responsabilidad ilimitada en caso de que la sociedad sea declarada en quiebra. Básicamente los presupuestos son: i) declaración de quiebra de la sociedad; ii) existencia de socios con responsabilidad ilimitada. En el presente trabajo se analizan los distintos aspectos ...

Wal-Mart’S Woes: Verification Of Employment Eligibility Of Independent Contractors, Jill Family Nov 2003

Wal-Mart’S Woes: Verification Of Employment Eligibility Of Independent Contractors, Jill Family

Jill E. Family

When federal agents raided 60 Wal-Mart stores and Wal-Mart's executive offices on October 23, 2003, an important issue was brought to the headlines: a company's obligation to verify the employment eligibility of independent contractors, and individuals employed by an independent contractor or a subcontractor, to perform services on behalf of the company.

Defining Religion, James M. Donovan Nov 2003

Defining Religion, James M. Donovan

James M. Donovan

The charge of this essay was to review definitional trends of "religion." Four major types were discussed: content, behavior, mental, and functional. While each type has considerations that suggest its relevance, all are incomplete when examined in isolation. Consequently, two approaches combining these types were briefly discussed: conjunctive and generative. Judging the former inferior to the latter, it was suggested that only the functional definitions are capable of being truly generative. The most inclusive definition of religion, therefore, will be one that is generative functional. Clues as to what such a definition might look like are found first in the ...


Hand, Posner, And The Myth Of The "Hand Formula", In Symposium, Negligence In The Law, Richard W. Wright Nov 2003

Hand, Posner, And The Myth Of The "Hand Formula", In Symposium, Negligence In The Law, Richard W. Wright

Richard W. Wright

There is a striking incongruence between the discussions of negligence in the legal literature, including the American Law Institute's Restatement of Torts, and the understandings of ordinary people and the actual practice of the courts. The legal literature generally assumes that an aggregate-risk-utility test is employed to determine whether conduct was reasonable or negligent. This test was invented by legal academics and inserted in the first Restatement during the first part of the twentieth century, although, as recent studies all conclude, it had almost no support in the cases prior to its adoption in the Restatement and for several ...


The Grounds And Extent Of Legal Responsibility, In Symposium, What Do Compensatory Damages Compensate?, Richard W. Wright Nov 2003

The Grounds And Extent Of Legal Responsibility, In Symposium, What Do Compensatory Damages Compensate?, Richard W. Wright

Richard W. Wright

This article identifies and discusses the three principal limitations on the extent of legal responsibility for tortiously caused harm and explains and justifies them by reference to the principle of interactive justice, which holds one legally responsible for causing (or being imminently about to cause) harm to another's person or property as a result of conduct that is inconsistent with others' right to equal freedom. The three principal limitations prevent liability for a tortiously caused harm when (1) the harm almost certainly would have occurred anyway in the absence of any tortious conduct or condition (the "no worse off ...


The Confluence Of Justice And Efficiency In The Economic Analysis Of Law, Robert D. Cooter Nov 2003

The Confluence Of Justice And Efficiency In The Economic Analysis Of Law, Robert D. Cooter

Robert Cooter

Value in economics is usually measured by price (the market tradition). This essay explores the relationship of price and satisfaction to corrective and distributive justice in law. I contend that corrective justice is relevant to all law. Corrective justice and efficiency converge in social norms, that evolve to coordinate behavior. Distributive justice, in contrast, is relevant to some bodies of law and irrelevant to many others, including private law.

The Price Of Social Norms: Towards A Liability Regime For File-Sharing, Daniel J. Gervais Nov 2003

The Price Of Social Norms: Towards A Liability Regime For File-Sharing, Daniel J. Gervais

Daniel J Gervais

he paper starts by asking whether P2P file-sharing of music can be stopped. Based on a discussion of (a) the interaction among law (regulation), technology and the market and (b) relevant social norms, the paper takes the view that it may not be possible to stop file-sharing. This paper then turns to an analysis of the economics and structure of a viable licensing model that could be implemented now without legislative or technological changes. The paper argues that P2P licensing could be good business. The paper ends with a brief look at (a) whether the licensing model could be exported ...


Vectoral Federalism, Scott Dodson Nov 2003

Vectoral Federalism, Scott Dodson

Scott Dodson

In this Article, I offer a new framework for understanding federalism. “Vectoral federalism” engages directional metaphors—horizontal and vertical—to group various federalism doctrines together into two principal groups. Horizontal federalism concerns the battle between the federal and the state governments for the power to regulate individuals. Vertical federalism concerns the federal government’s power to regulate states and the states’ concomitant power to resist this regulation. Viewing federalism doctrines as having vertical or horizontal vectors (or both) identifies their common justifications and characteristics, which can assist in understanding and in applying the principles of federalism. The directional synthesis also ...


Dignity: The New Frontier Of State Sovereignty, Scott Dodson Nov 2003

Dignity: The New Frontier Of State Sovereignty, Scott Dodson

Scott Dodson

Few constitutional doctrines have had as turbulent a history as state sovereign immunity, the right of a state to refuse to appear as a defendant in court. The Court has, until recently, avoided a full explanation of the reason for immunizing states from certain suits. But in the 2002 decision Federal Maritime Commission v. South Carolina State Ports Authority, the Court asserted that the preeminent purpose of state sovereign immunity is to accord States the dignity that is consistent with their status as sovereign entities. This “dignity rationale” lacks substantial justification and is untethered to any limiting principles. Given that ...


Franklin Barley: Patent Law And Plant Breeders' Rights, Matthew Rimmer Nov 2003

Franklin Barley: Patent Law And Plant Breeders' Rights, Matthew Rimmer

Matthew Rimmer

This paper considers the relationship between patent law and plant breeders' rights in light of modern developments in biotechnology. It examines how a number of superior courts have sought to manage the tensions and conflicts between these competing schemes of intellectual property protection. Part 1 considers the High Court of Australia case of Grain Pool of Western Australia v the Commonwealth dealing with Franklin barley. Part 2 examines the significance of the Supreme Court of the United States decision in JEM Ag Supply Inc v Pioneer Hi-Bred International Inc with respect to utility patents and hybrid seed. Part 3 considers ...
