Real Deal Or No Deal? A Comparative Analysis Of Raw Milk Cheese Regulation In Australia And France, William van Caenegem, Madeline Taylor 2017 Bond University

Real Deal Or No Deal? A Comparative Analysis Of Raw Milk Cheese Regulation In Australia And France, William Van Caenegem, Madeline Taylor

Law Faculty Publications

Australia’s regulatory framework has resulted in the standardisation of cheese production based on pasteurisation. Up until early 2015, regulations effectively prohibited raw milk cheese-making in Australia and thus stifled artisanal on-farm production. Although the introduction of Food Standards Australia New Zealand Standard 4.2.4 has allowed the production of certain hard, low-moisture raw milk cheeses, the new standard is rigid and does not encourage new entrants into the emerging raw milk cheese consumer market. This article compares the Australian system with the French raw milk cheese regulation and production system, and argues that its approach in encouraging and ...

Farming And Eating, Margot J. Pollans 2017 Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University

Farming And Eating, Margot J. Pollans

Pace Law Faculty Publications

This essay argues that the “us versus them” rhetoric that dominates food and agriculture policy today drives a wedge between farmers and food consumers. Together, farmers and food consumers could form a powerful coalition to challenge the true obstacle to sustainable and equitable food production: concentration of market and political power elsewhere along the food chain.

Principles Limiting Recovery Against Undercover Investigators In Ag-Gag States: Law, Policy And Logic, 50 J. Marshall L. Rev. 649 (2017), Sarah Hanneken 2017 John Marshall Law School

Principles Limiting Recovery Against Undercover Investigators In Ag-Gag States: Law, Policy And Logic, 50 J. Marshall L. Rev. 649 (2017), Sarah Hanneken

The John Marshall Law Review

This Comment explores the history and purpose of ag-gag legislation as well as its constitutional shortcomings, particularly with regard to damages. Using North Carolina’s recent ag-gag efforts to silence whistleblowers as an effective case study, this Comment explains how free-speech protections, public policy, and causation principles all limit the monetary damages recoverable against undercover investigators. It begins in Part II with a history of undercover investigations and their role in confronting systemic exploitation within various industries. It then describes how these industries have responded to the unwanted attention by turning to the courts and legislatures for redress. It is ...

Assessing The Relative Influence And Efficacy Of Public And Private Food Safety Regulation Regimes: Comparing Codex And Global Gap Standards, Sam Halabi, Ching-Fu Lin 2016 University of Missouri School of Law

Assessing The Relative Influence And Efficacy Of Public And Private Food Safety Regulation Regimes: Comparing Codex And Global Gap Standards, Sam Halabi, Ching-Fu Lin

Sam Halabi

An extensive global system of private food regulation is under construction, one
that exceeds conventional regulation thought of as being driven by public authorities
like FDA and USDA in the U.S. or the Food Standards Agency in the UK. Agrifood
and grocer organizations, in concert with some farming groups, have been the primary
designers of this new food regulatory regime. These groups have established alliances
that compete with national regulators in complex ways. This article analyzes the
relationship between public and private sources of food safety regulation by
examining standards adopted by the Codex Alimentarius Commission, a food safety ...

Taking Stock: Why The Supreme Court’S Decision To Apply The Market-Value Standard In Horne Ii Further Complicates The Just Compensation Requirement, Greg Seidner 2016 University of New Hampshire School of Law

Taking Stock: Why The Supreme Court’S Decision To Apply The Market-Value Standard In Horne Ii Further Complicates The Just Compensation Requirement, Greg Seidner

University of New Hampshire Law Review

The Fifth Amendment’s Takings Clause does not prevent the federal (or a state) government from taking private property. It merely sets as a condition that the government pay the owner “just compensation” for the taking. Precisely what constitutes just compensation, however, is a tricky matter. One method for determining just compensation is the “market-value” method, which requires the government to pay the owner the property’s market value. But where a taking is only partial, that is, where the government takes only a portion of private property, the property that remains with the owner may see an increase or ...

Revenue Reconciliation Act Of 1990, Neil E. Harl 2016 Iowa State University

Revenue Reconciliation Act Of 1990, Neil E. Harl

Neil E. Harl

The legislation imposes a 31 percent marginal tax rate above the 15 and 28 percent marginal tax rate brackets. The phase-outs of the benefits from the 15 percent rate and the personal exemption amounts (creating the so-called "bubble") are repealed. The new 31 percent rate begins at the same level of taxable income as the phase-out range of prior law.


Turn Over Of Assets To Creditors, Neil E. Harl 2016 Iowa State University

Turn Over Of Assets To Creditors, Neil E. Harl

Neil E. Harl

From 1983 to 1989, US agricultural debt dropped by about $60 billion as debts were discharged in bankruptcy, obligations were restructured with debt written off and property was deeded back to creditors. The resulting tax consequences created highly significant income tax burdens for debtors and contributed to various proposals for debtor relief from tax liability. However, except for relief from alternative minimum tax liability stemming from capital gains and a new solvent farm debtor rule for discharge of indebtedness, farm and ranch debtors were consigned to working through their debt problems within existing tax law.


Type Of Lease For An S Corporation, Neil E. Harl 2016 Iowa State University

Type Of Lease For An S Corporation, Neil E. Harl

Neil E. Harl

Since enactment of the S corporation concept in 1958, it has been important to give careful thought to the kind of lease entered into by S corporations as landowners. In the years since the major amendments to Subchapter S of the Internal Revenue Code in 1982, The type of lease has been less important for some S corporations but it is still a major checklist item for S corporation planning.


Tax-Free Incorporation, Neil E. Harl 2016 Iowa State University

Tax-Free Incorporation, Neil E. Harl

Neil E. Harl

For several years, relatively little change had been made in the rules governing the tax-free exchange of property to a corporation. The questions raised in the 1970s about how to handle basis allocation between stock and debt securities had been answered. The problems of distinguishing debt and equity securities had not been resolved but that issue seemed to be less of a burning concern with IRS than it was until the proposed regulations issued in 1980 were revoked in 1983 before becoming final.
