Traps In Abandonment Of Property In Bankruptcy, Neil E. Harl 2010 Iowa State University

Traps In Abandonment Of Property In Bankruptcy, Neil E. Harl

Agricultural Law Digest

The economic downturn since 2007 and the rising tide of bankruptcies have focused attention on the consequences of abandonment in bankruptcy.1 While bankruptcy law in the United States (in contrast to the treatment in some other countries) has long assured individual debtors a “fresh start” in life following bankruptcy,2 with such debtors in liquidation bankruptcy (Chapter 7)3 as well as reorganization bankruptcy4 generally eligible for discharge of debt, the way abandonments in bankruptcy are handled under prevailing case law5 interferes substantially with the vaunted fresh start after bankruptcy.6 A 1989 letter ruling issued by ...

Change Of "Taxpayer" After Crop Insurance (And Disaster Payment) Deferral, Neil E. Harl 2010 Iowa State University

Change Of "Taxpayer" After Crop Insurance (And Disaster Payment) Deferral, Neil E. Harl

Agricultural Law Digest

Recently, the question was asked, “what are the consequences of incorporating or forming an LLC after electing to defer crop insurance and disaster payments?”1 It is tempting to change entities (for the business entity involved), particularly if income shifting to a lower tax bracket taxpayer is possible. However, that outcome seems to be blocked by assignment-of-income rules of long standing.


A Cranberry Recipe For Citizen Rulemaking, Tobias F. Bannon, III 2010 Boston College Law School

A Cranberry Recipe For Citizen Rulemaking, Tobias F. Bannon, Iii

Boston College Environmental Affairs Law Review

Under the Massachusetts Clean Water Act, a loophole exists that allows fertilizer-laden waters to escape “wet crop” farms and to flow into nearby waterways, causing detrimental effects. Blackmore Pond, located near Cape Cod, Massachusetts, has seen such effects, and its residents are eager for change. Considering that past lawsuits have failed to close the wet crop loophole, the residents of Blackmore Pond may petition the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection to amend the Massachusetts Clean Water Act regulations. The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection may accept the proposed amendments, in which case the residents of Blackmore Pond will have achieved ...


China In Context: Energy, Water, And Climate Cooperation, Prof. Elizabeth Burleson 2010 SelectedWorks

China In Context: Energy, Water, And Climate Cooperation, Prof. Elizabeth Burleson

Prof. Elizabeth Burleson

Climate resilient communities can be achieved with the support of global research, development, deployment, and diffusion of environmentally sound low GHG emission technologies and processes. Technology cooperation should lower emissions remaining mindful of biodiversity, ecosystem services and livelihoods. China and the United States need to respond effectively to both economic and climate crises and can do so in part by cooperating on environmentally sound technology that transforms the global use of energy.


Emerging Law Addressing Climate Change And Water, Prof. Elizabeth Burleson 2010 SelectedWorks

Emerging Law Addressing Climate Change And Water, Prof. Elizabeth Burleson

Prof. Elizabeth Burleson

The World Economic Forum recognizes that while restrictions on energy affect water systems and vice versa, energy and water policy are rarely coordinated. The International Panel on Climate Change predicts that wet places will become wetter and dry places will become dryer. Transboundary water, energy and climate coordination can occur through international consensus building.

Farmers, Ranchers, And The Railroad: The Evolution Of Fence Law In The Great Plains, 1865–190, Yasuhide Kawashima 2010 University of Texas at El Paso

Farmers, Ranchers, And The Railroad: The Evolution Of Fence Law In The Great Plains, 1865–190, Yasuhide Kawashima

Great Plains Quarterly

In North America, building fences was an essential part of life for the English settlers from the beginning. Departing from the English common law rule that required owners to fence in their cattle, nearly all the colonial legislatures and courts imposed upon landowners a duty to fence their property against trespassing cattle.l The reasons were partly to increase the meager supply of livestock by permitting cattle to wander about in order to breed faster and partly to make full use of the vast virgin forest and grassland. Gradually, however, in New England and in much of New York and ...

Immigrant Workers And The Thirteenth Amendment, Maria Ontiveros 2009 University of San Francisco School of Law

Immigrant Workers And The Thirteenth Amendment, Maria Ontiveros

Maria L. Ontiveros

This chapter examines the treatment of immigrant workers through the lens of the Thirteenth Amendment. It examines how the intersection of labor and immigration laws impact immigrant workers in general, "guest workers" and undocumented immigrants. It argues that immigrant workers can be seen as a caste of nonwhite workers laboring beneath the floor for free labor in ways which violate the Thirteenth Amendment. Further, it suggests ways in which immigrant workers can use the Thirteenth Amendment to improve their situation and offers an analysis of how the Thirteenth Amendment can form a bridge for organizing between labor, civil rights, immigration ...

Section 4 Of The Hindu Succession Act Of 1956, Hari Priya 2009 NALSAR University of Law

Section 4 Of The Hindu Succession Act Of 1956, Hari Priya

Hari Priya

A brief write up in the form of a comprehensive article aiming to critically evaluate the Section 4 of the Hindu Succession Act of 1956. The law, as it stands amended, has not only brought about changes in the succession laws of Hindus, but has also paved the way for some positive modifications in the law of partition, alienation of property, inheritance and adoption, and the paper is an effort to evaluate this provision of the law.
