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 ...

Freedom Of Contract Under State Supervision.Pdf, Hao Jiang 2016 Tulane Law School

Freedom Of Contract Under State Supervision.Pdf, Hao Jiang

Hao Jiang Esq.

This study investigates the theoretical obstacles freedom of contract brings to an economy where state ownership is pervasive while the market is not sufficiently competitive such as China. Contrary to the arguments made by existing literatures that attributed all the conflicts of interest between state and private investors and related agency problems to the state ownership and dual role of state as a regulator and market player, and that adoption of unitary treatments to state and private ownerships alike as the solution, I attribute most of the obstacles in the contract law theories to the absence of a free market ...

Over-The-Counter Derivatives In A Global Financial Marketplace: The Case For Uniform Global Identifiers And Compatible Reporting Requirements In Substituted Compliance Comparability Determinations, Kimberly R. Thomasson 2016 The Catholic University of America, Columbus School of Law

Over-The-Counter Derivatives In A Global Financial Marketplace: The Case For Uniform Global Identifiers And Compatible Reporting Requirements In Substituted Compliance Comparability Determinations, Kimberly R. Thomasson

Catholic University Law Review

The 2008 financial crisis prompted a global regulatory overhaul of over-the-counter derivative markets. The Dodd-Frank Act mandated the CFTC and SEC to issue new rules and regulations to bring the majority of the OTC derivative market out of the dark on onto regulated exchanges. Similar action was taken in the European Union and other G20 nations. There has been a push to harmonize rules for OTC derivatives across jurisdictions to make the market more efficient and eliminate regulatory arbitrage. This Comment focuses on the process for a regulated entity in the US and EU to “substitute compliance” with its home ...


Mobile Banking: The Answer For The Unbanked In America?, Catherine Martin Christopher 2016 The Catholic University of America, Columbus School of Law

Mobile Banking: The Answer For The Unbanked In America?, Catherine Martin Christopher

Catholic University Law Review

In the United States, the poor often lack access to mainstream banking services. Instead, they rely on expensive, poorly regulated alternatives like check cashers, payday lenders, pawnshops, and auto title lenders. These financial products jeopardize poor people’s financial and physical security. In pushing adoption of traditional banking products, both government officials and private enterprise have attempted to craft solutions to the banking access problem, but so far these attempts have fallen short. This Article asserts that mobile banking may be a transformative technology that can significantly increase financial inclusion in the United States.

The Article discusses current statistics and ...


Evaluating Joint Ventures: Economic Analysis Checklist, Steven C. Salop 2016 Georgetown University Law Center

Evaluating Joint Ventures: Economic Analysis Checklist, Steven C. Salop

Georgetown Law Faculty Publications and Other Works

This short article (for a symposium on joint ventures) provides practitioners and law professor with a 20 question checklist to guide the competitive effects analysis of the formation of a joint venture and the specific restraints and conduct of the venture. The questions mainly focus on ventures among actual or potential competitors, though some of the questions also are relevant for ventures involving complementary product firms. The questions concern potential competitive harms, potential competitive benefits, and the determination of net competitive effects. While this sequencing follows the standard burden-shifting formulation of the rule of reason decision process, the article notes ...
