Summary Of Moore V. State, 122 Nev. Adv. Op. 4, Stephanie Hamrick

Nevada Supreme Court Summaries

Appellant Moore was convicted of fraudulent use of a credit card based on an incident that took place in a Las Vegas Wal-Mart. His suspicious behavior2 while shopping attracted the attention of a loss prevention specialist. The loss prevention specialist suspected Moore might attempt to purchase goods with a credit card, and instructed a cashier to contact management if Moore presented a credit card without proper identification. Moore brought over $300 worth of goods to the cashier’s register and presented a credit card. When Moore could not produce identification, the cashier summoned a manager who took the credit card ...


Law Review Correspondence: Better Read Than Dead?, Erik M. Jensen Jan 2006

Law Review Correspondence: Better Read Than Dead?, Erik M. Jensen

Faculty Publications

These essays were part of a mini-symposium, “Of Correspondence and Commentary,” published by the Connecticut Law Review. At the time, a number of prominent law reviews had begun to publish “correspondence,” shorter pieces generally commenting on work published in the reviews. Whatever they were called, however, these pieces looked an awful lot like articles, complete with footnotes, titles with colons, and other law-review-type stuff. The author used the creation of correspondence sections to ruminate on the nature of legal scholarship, as published in student-edited law reviews, and in particular to wonder whether authors were using correspondence sections as backdoor ways ...

Law, Economics, And Accommodations In The Internal Labor Market, Seth Harris Jan 2006

Law, Economics, And Accommodations In The Internal Labor Market, Seth Harris

ExpressO

This article argues that employers can derive economic benefits from providing their incumbent employees with accommodations in some, perhaps many, circumstances. Thus, an economically rational employer should welcome negotiations over accommodations with their incumbent employees with disabilities as a fertile opportunity to reap increased benefits from its relationship with those employees.

The article applies “internal labor market theory” to assess how employers benefit from providing accommodations. This labor economics theory considers the causes and effects of barriers to competition found in the labor market consisting of an employer’s incumbent workforce. Internal labor market theory holds that these barriers to ...

Anti-Employer Blogging: Employee Breach Of The Duty Of Loyalty And The Procedure For Allowing Discovery Of A Blogger’S Identity Before Service Of Process Is Effected, Konrad Lee Jan 2006

Anti-Employer Blogging: Employee Breach Of The Duty Of Loyalty And The Procedure For Allowing Discovery Of A Blogger’S Identity Before Service Of Process Is Effected, Konrad Lee

Duke Law & Technology Review

The rapid rise in anonymous anti-employer internet blogs by disgruntled employees has created a tension between the liberty interests of employees in free speech and privacy and employers' rights to be free from defamation, disparagement and disclosure of confidential information by an employee. This iBrief argues that the anonymity of anti-employer bloggers should not shield employees from breach of the duty of loyalty claims under tort and contract law, and that Congress should enact rules to govern the disclosure of blogger identity.


The Imaginary Connection Between The Great Law Of Peace And The United States Constitution: A Reply To Professor Schaaf, Erik M. Jensen Jan 2006

The Imaginary Connection Between The Great Law Of Peace And The United States Constitution: A Reply To Professor Schaaf, Erik M. Jensen

Faculty Publications

This article challenges the politically correct theory advanced in a 1989 article by Gregory Schaaf, “From the Great Law of Peace to the Constitution of the United States: A Revision of America’s Democratic Roots.” Professor Schaaf argued that large parts of the U.S. Constitution were based on the Great Law of Peace, the founding document of the Iroquois Confederacy. This article points to the lack of primary authority supporting such a counterintuitive proposition and questions the likelihood that Iroquois principles could have silently influenced American founders. Finally, the article questions whether it is desirable to try to further ...


Pricelessness And Life: An Essay For Guido Calabresi, Gregory C. Keating Jan 2006

Pricelessness And Life: An Essay For Guido Calabresi, Gregory C. Keating

University of Southern California Legal Studies Working Paper Series

This paper - written for a conference celebrating "The Costs of Accidents," three and half decades after its publication - pays tribute to Calabresi's remarkable exploration of the deepest, most disturbing and most difficult problem in the law of accidents. Throughout his long and distinguished career, Guido Calabresi has insisted that a tragic conflict of irreconcilable values lies at the heart of our law of accidents. We are profoundly committed both to "the ideal that life is a pearl beyond price" and to the practice of valuing people's lives in market terms - to the practice of pricing life. We know ...

Commentary: Food For Thought And Thoughts About Food: Can Meals And Lodging Provided To Domestic Servants Be For The Convenience Of The Employer?, Erik M. Jensen Jan 2006

Commentary: Food For Thought And Thoughts About Food: Can Meals And Lodging Provided To Domestic Servants Be For The Convenience Of The Employer?, Erik M. Jensen

Faculty Publications

This commentary considers one of the least important issues in tax law: whether the value of meals and lodging provided to domestic servants is excludable from the servants' gross income under section 119 of the Internal Revenue Code. Trivial though the issue is, the author goes on and on-and on, arguing that an example in the regulations under section 119, which concludes that the "business premises of the employer" requirement would be satisfied in such a situation, is misleading in its implications. It's not enough that the meals and lodging be provided on the business premises of the employer ...

The Law Review Manuscript Glut: The Need For Guidelines, Erik M. Jensen Jan 2006

The Law Review Manuscript Glut: The Need For Guidelines, Erik M. Jensen

Faculty Publications

Legal academics generally publish in student-edited journals that have no sole-submission requirement, and it is common for authors to submit articles to dozens of journals at a time. As a result, law reviews are buried in manuscripts. Most manuscripts cannot even be looked at, much less evaluated, and there’s not much reason for evaluation anyway: a journal has little chance to publish any particular article. In short, the legal publication system is broken. (Indeed, given the ease and trivial cost of electronic submission - why not submit the article on artichoke law to Yale as well as So-So State? - things ...


The Supreme Court And The Timing Of Deductions For Accrual-Basis Taxpayers, Erik M. Jensen Jan 2006

The Supreme Court And The Timing Of Deductions For Accrual-Basis Taxpayers, Erik M. Jensen

Faculty Publications

This article examines the Supreme Court's two decisions in the late 1980s dealing with the timing of deductions, United States v. Hughes Properties (1986) and United States v. General Dynamics Corp. (1987), and finds those decisions wanting. Indeed, it is hard to understand why the Court exercised its discretionary jurisdiction twice in such a short period when the cases involved technicalities that seemed to overwhelm the generalist justices and when subsequent disputes with similar factual situations would be affected by statutory changes.

What's In A Name?: Cause Lawyers As Conceptual Category, Corey S. Shdaimah Jan 2006

What's In A Name?: Cause Lawyers As Conceptual Category, Corey S. Shdaimah

ExpressO

Stuart Scheingold's and Austin Sarat's "Something to Believe In: Politics, Professionalism, and Cause Lawyering," (Stanford University Press, December 2004) draws on a decade of empirical and theoretical work on cause lawyering. Scheingold’s and Sarat’s law and society scholarship contributes to our knowledge of lawyering, the law, work with clients and social movements, and the interplay between what Ewick and Silbey have called "legality" and the social world. Their cross-disciplinary work makes a significant contribution to the social sciences as well as to the field of legal studies. This review examines the utility of cause lawyering as ...


Living By The Sword: The Free Exercise Of Religion And The Sikh Struggle For The Right To Carry A Kirpan, Rishi S. Bagga Jan 2006

Living By The Sword: The Free Exercise Of Religion And The Sikh Struggle For The Right To Carry A Kirpan, Rishi S. Bagga

ExpressO

Sikhism is a 500 year old religion with a growing presence in the United States. However, one of the articles of faith required for Sikhs, a kirpan (a ceremonial sword), conflicts with the norms of American life for these often misunderstood people. This paper gives a brief primer on Sikhism and discusses some of the day-to-day problems and recent issues facing kirpan-carrying Sikhs in North America. Upon reviewing the current state of free exercise jurisprudence as applied to the kirpan, I outline several suggestions for the acceptance and accommodation of kirpans.


Demystifying Legal Reasoning: Part Ii, Larry Alexander, Emily Sherwin Jan 2006

Demystifying Legal Reasoning: Part Ii, Larry Alexander, Emily Sherwin

Cornell Law Faculty Publications

"Demystifying Legal Reasoning" defends the proposition that there are no special forms of reasoning peculiar to law. Legal decisionmakers engage in the same modes of reasoning that all actors use in deciding what to do: open-ended moral reasoning, empirical reasoning, and deduction from authoritative rules. Part II (abstracted here) addresses common law reasoning, when prior judicial decisions determine the law. Part III addresses interpretation of texts. We conclude that, in both areas, the popular view that legal decisionmakers practice special forms of reasoning are false.

In Chapter 2, we propose that there are two plausible models of common law reasoning ...

Ip Antitrust: Keeping The Free-Market Innovation Machine Working, William Kolasky Jan 2006

Ip Antitrust: Keeping The Free-Market Innovation Machine Working, William Kolasky

Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr Antitrust Series

One of the most thoughtful books in recent years on how innovation drives economic growth is Professor William Baumol’s The Free-Market Innovation Machine. In it, Professor Baumol shows that over the past 150 years, per capita incomes in a typical free market economy have risen at unprecedented levels. He argues that the engine driving this growth is the competitive pressure a well-functioning free market economy places on firms to invest in innovation and to share new technologies with the firms that can use it most efficiently.
