The Insurability Of Claims For Restitution, Christopher French 2016 Penn State Law

The Insurability Of Claims For Restitution, Christopher French

Christopher C. French

Does and should a wrongdoer’s liability insurance cover an aggrieved party’s claim for restitution (e.g., a claim for the disgorgement of ill-gotten gains)?  This article answers those questions.  It does so by first answering the question of whether claims for restitution are covered under the terms of liability insurance policies.  Then, after concluding that they are, it addresses the question of whether claims for restitution should be insurable as a matter of public policy and insurance law theory.  There are long-standing legal and equitable principles that, on the one hand, dictate that a wrongdoer should not be ...

The Rules Of The Game And The Morality Of Efficient Breach, Gregory Klass 2016 Georgetown University Law Center

The Rules Of The Game And The Morality Of Efficient Breach, Gregory Klass

Georgetown Law Faculty Publications and Other Works

Moralists have long criticized the theory of efficient breach for its advocacy of promise breaking. But a fully developed theory of efficient breach has an internal morality of its own. It argues that sophisticated parties contract for efficient breach, which in the long run maximizes everyone’s welfare. And the theory marks some breaches—those that are opportunistic, obstructive, or otherwise inefficient—as wrongs that the law should deter, as transgressions that should not be priced but punished. That internal morality, however, does not excuse the theory from moral scrutiny. An extended comparison to Jean Renoir’s 1939 film, La ...

Solving The Puzzle Of Corporate Governance Of State-Owned Enterprises: The Path Of Temasek Model In Singapore And Lessons For China, CHEN, Christopher C. H. 2016 Singapore Management University

Solving The Puzzle Of Corporate Governance Of State-Owned Enterprises: The Path Of Temasek Model In Singapore And Lessons For China, Chen, Christopher C. H.

Research Collection School Of Law

The purpose of this Article is to examine the corporate governance of state-owned enterprises (SOEs) in the Asian context by empirically surveying the influence of Temasek Holdings, Singapore’s sovereign wealth fund, on its portfolio of government-linked companies in Singapore. Overall, the Temasek model seems to be a promising one. This Article shows that the top listed government-linked companies in which Temasek has a stake have greater board independence than the other top listed companies in Singapore. This illustrates that a high quality of corporate governance could be aligned with public interests associated with SOEs. While this research offers hope ...


The Hierarchy Of Priority, Paul Wangerin 2016 Pepperdine University

The Hierarchy Of Priority, Paul Wangerin

The Journal of Business, Entrepreneurship & the Law

The analysis in this article suggests that there is a hierarchy of priorities in Article 9 of the UCC and that this hierarchy is relatively simple to describe. The analysis here describes this hierarchy by engaging in a two-part analysis. Part I suggests that the rules for priorities in Article 9 come out of the interaction of a number of variables, variables that are well-known to everybody who is familiar with Article 9. Part II suggests that the variables described in Part I allow us to put all of the important rules about priorities into a simple chart that shows ...


Can You Ever Disclaim An Express Warranty?, Kurt M. Saunders 2016 Pepperdine University

Can You Ever Disclaim An Express Warranty?, Kurt M. Saunders

The Journal of Business, Entrepreneurship & the Law

Article 2 of the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) recognizes both express warranties and implied warranties of quality in the sale of goods. Within specific limits, the UCC permits sellers to exclude or modify implied warranties. When it comes to disclaiming express warranties, however, the UCC is not so explicit. However, sellers of goods sometimes inquire about the possibility of doing so and whether such disclaimers are enforceable. This essay attempts to answer these questions.

Redefining The Rico Statute: Potential Avenues For Improvement, David Scouten 2016 Liberty University

Redefining The Rico Statute: Potential Avenues For Improvement, David Scouten

Senior Honors Theses

The civil application of the Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) has been misapplied by the lower courts, but the statute can be improved by incorporating elements that will make the statute a better tool for justice. It is evident from examining the procedural limitations of the statute and important case law that the securities fraud gap, terrorism financing, and difficulties for indirect victims are three critical subjects that need to be addressed by enhancing RICO. Flaws and shortcomings of the RICO statute have led to inconsistencies in court rulings. The expansive language of RICO can be limited to ...
