The World Is Round: Why We Must Assure Equal Access To Civil Justice, Jon D. Levy 2017 University of Maine School of Law

The World Is Round: Why We Must Assure Equal Access To Civil Justice, Jon D. Levy

Maine Law Review

In 1972, the astronauts of Apollo 17, NASA’s final manned-mission to the Moon, took a photograph of the entire hemisphere of Earth. The photograph shows the continents of Africa and Antarctica in hues of red and brown, surrounded by the vibrant blue oceans and topped by swirling white clouds. It has become an iconic image. Studying the Earth from afar, Eugene Cernan, Apollo 17’s commander, reported to the Houston command center with just a touch of irony: “We’re not the first to discover this, but we’d like to confirm, from the crew of Apollo 17, that ...

Le Code Napoleón Régit-Il Toujours L’Amérique Latine D’Outre-Tombe?, Matthew C. Mirow

M. C. Mirow

A l'occasion de réunions internationales, il est commun de voir des juristes de pays différents échanger des plaisanteries douteuses sur leurs systemes juridiques et la pratique judiciaire. Lorsqu'ils se trouvent aux Etats-Unis, les juristes d' Amérique Latine se plaisent à informer leurs interlocuteurs que leur systéme est toujours basé sur la codification napoléonienne. Une telle remarque ne fera pas le méme effet sur un juriste des Etats-Unis que sur un juriste européen. Elle masque à peine l'affirmation d'une égalité historique et culturelle, voire d'un sentiment de supériorité a l'égard de la tradition juridique anglo-américaine ...

Nevada Supreme Court Summaries

Under NRS 18.015, attorneys are permitted to obtain attorney fees through the enforcement of a retaining lien. If the attorney satisfies all elements of NRS 18.015, then properly moves the district court to enforce the lien, the district court can actively enforce the retaining lien and award the attorney a monetary judgment.

Reviving Reliance, Ann M. Lipton 2017 Tulane Law School

Reviving Reliance, Ann M. Lipton

Fordham Law Review

This Article explores the misalignment between the disclosure requirements of the federal securities laws and the private causes of action available to investors to enforce those requirements. Historically, federally mandated disclosures were designed to allow investors to set an appropriate price for publicly traded securities. Today’s disclosures, however, also enable stockholders to participate in corporate governance and act as a check on managerial misbehavior. To enforce these requirements, investors’ chief option is a claim under the general antifraud statute, section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. But courts are deeply suspicious of investors’ attempts to use ...


Affirming Firm Sanctions: The Authority To Sanction Law Firms Under 28 U.S.C. § 1927, Vincent J. Margiotta 2017 Fordham University School of Law

Affirming Firm Sanctions: The Authority To Sanction Law Firms Under 28 U.S.C. § 1927, Vincent J. Margiotta

Fordham Law Review

A circuit split exists as to whether 28 U.S.C. § 1927 allows for an award of sanctions against nonattorneys or nonrepresentatives. Five federal courts of appeals—the Second, Third, Eighth, Eleventh, and the District of Columbia Circuits—hold that, to further the purpose of 28 U.S.C. § 1927, courts have the authority to sanction a law firm for the conduct of its attorneys, in addition to the authority to sanction individual officers of the court. The Sixth, Seventh, and Ninth Circuits disagree, concluding that the statute allows federal courts to sanction only individuals—“attorney[s] or other person ...


Confronting The Ghost: Legal Strategies To Oust Medical Ghostwriters, Deanna Minasi 2017 Fordham University School of Law

Confronting The Ghost: Legal Strategies To Oust Medical Ghostwriters, Deanna Minasi

Fordham Law Review

Articles published in medical journals contribute significantly to public health by disseminating medical information to physicians, thereby influencing prescribing practices. However, the information guiding treatment decisions becomes distorted by selective publishing and medical ghostwriting, which negatively affects overall patient care. Although there is general consensus in the medical community that these practices of publication bias represent a moral failing, the issue is rarely framed as a wrong that necessitates legal consequences. This Note takes the stance that medical ghostwriting constitutes an act prohibited under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) and argues that physicians fraudulently named as authors ...


The Flsa Permission Slip: Determining Whether Flsa Settlements And Voluntary Dismissals Require Approval, Alex Lau 2017 Fordham University School of Law

The Flsa Permission Slip: Determining Whether Flsa Settlements And Voluntary Dismissals Require Approval, Alex Lau

Fordham Law Review

The Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 (FLSA) seeks to protect the poorest, most vulnerable workers by requiring that they be paid a minimum wage and compensated for their overtime labor. When employers do not pay their workers minimum wage or overtime compensation and thereby violate the FLSA, workers have the power to sue their employers for remuneration. Like many other types of cases, most FLSA cases settle before going to trial. Unlike those other types of cases, however, most courts have held that settlements of FLSA cases must be approved to be enforceable. Even though Federal Rule of Civil ...

Nevada Supreme Court Summaries

The Court held that, without notice, a permanent change to custody and visitation violates due process rights, and the affected party must be given the opportunity to respond and rebut the evidence. Further, when the district court conducts an alternative interview with a child, the interviews must be recorded and comply with the Uniform Child Witness Testimony by Alternative Methods Act.

Nevada Supreme Court Summaries

The Nevada Supreme Court (en banc) held that (1) a hyperlink to source material concerning a judicial proceeding may qualify as a report within the common law fair report privilege; and (2) Nevada’s anti-SLAPP statute, as effective prior to the 2013 amendment, reaches communication “aimed at procuring any governmental or electoral action,” even if it is not addressed to a government agency.

Nevada Supreme Court Summaries

Under NRS Chapters 40 and 116, homeowners associations (HOAs) have the representational standing to represent all homeowners who purchase their homes after litigation is commenced by or against the HOAs. However, the Court clarified that there is no such representational standing to bring or continue to pursue a case on behalf of homeowners who sell their units after litigation has begun.
