Freedom To Mislead: The Fictitious Freedom To Contract Around Fraud Under Delaware Law, Hao Jiang 2016 Selected Works

Freedom To Mislead: The Fictitious Freedom To Contract Around Fraud Under Delaware Law, Hao Jiang

Dr. Hao Jiang

In the past 15 years, Delaware courts seem to have created a rule that allowed sophisticated parties to contract around fraud by using an unambiguous disclaimer and integration clause. Supposedly, an extra-contractual fraud claim would be dismissed had there been an unambiguous disclaimer. However, a survey of Delaware cases tells a different story. When dismissing the fraud claims, courts has either found that there was no justifiable reliance to establish a fraud claim or they were convinced that there was no fraud. The cases would have been decided the same without the disclaimer.

The United States, Developing Countries And The Issue Of Intra-Enterprise Agreements, Joel Davidow 2016 University of Georgia School of Law

The United States, Developing Countries And The Issue Of Intra-Enterprise Agreements, Joel Davidow

Georgia Journal of International & Comparative Law

Antitrust issues have become one of the main concern of the world economy community and the United Nations. For many years, the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development has multiplied the meetings to discuss the relationship between transnational enterprises and international investment and has engaged in reflections on methods to avoid a decline in international investment. However, these meetings failed to resolve the fundamental issue of the impact of international antitrust principles on restrictive arrangements between a foreign parent corporation and its local subsidiary, particularly where that subsidiary is in a developing country. If applied, multinational enterprises would be ...


La Carta De Intención (Letter Of Intent) En La Adquisición De Empresas: ¿Son Contratos Preparatorios?, Marco Andrei Torres Maldonado 2016 Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos

La Carta De Intención (Letter Of Intent) En La Adquisición De Empresas: ¿Son Contratos Preparatorios?, Marco Andrei Torres Maldonado

Marco Andrei Torres Maldonado

En el presente artículo se aborda, desde un enfoque práctico y dogmático, la trascendencia de la denominada carta de intención en la práctica corporativa. Según el autor, independientemente del carácter no vinculante que suele revestir la carta de intención, su celebración genera, para las partes, una serie de compromisos jurídicamente vinculantes, entre ellos, la obligación de negociar al amparo del principio de la buena fe, por lo que aunque per se no vincula a las partes para suscribir el contrato definitivo de adquisición de la compañía target, el abandono injustificado, arbitrario y abusivo sí resulta resarcible.

Julien C. Hounkpe

L’expérience enseigne que les pactes d’actionnaires sont le plus souvent méconnus ou insuffisamment utilisés dans les sociétés anonymes en Afrique. Or ces instruments conventionnels permettent de mettre en place un certain nombre de mécanismes qui s’avéreraient efficaces dans la prévention des conflits entre actionnaires dans l’espace OHADA.

Perverse Innovation, Dan L. Burk 2016 College of William & Mary Law School

Perverse Innovation, Dan L. Burk

William & Mary Law Review

An inescapable feature of regulation is the existence of loopholes: activities that formally comply with the text of regulation, but which in practice avoid the desired outcome of the regulation. Considerable ingenuity may be devoted to exploiting regulatory loopholes. Where technological regulation is at issue, such ingenuity may often be devoted to developing new technology that avoids the regulation; such innovation may be termed “perverse” because it is directed to avoiding the regulation that prompted it. Nonetheless, in this Article I argue that such regulatory circumvention may result in socially beneficial innovation. Drawing on insights from innovation policy in the ...


Digital Exhaustion: North American Observations, Ariel Katz 2016 University of Toronto, Faculty of Law

Digital Exhaustion: North American Observations, Ariel Katz

Ariel Katz

Rumor has it that the first-sale doctrine is dying. According to the rumor, the doctrine, forged in the era of the physical copy, will lose its prominence in the brave new world where works in digital formats are no longer distributed and enjoyed as particular identifiable objects but exist merely as data flows. Some (e.g., librarians, consumer advocates) mourn the loss of their beloved doctrine with trepidation, while others (e.g., publishers) rejoice at its anticipated demise. Both camps assume that the doctrine is confined to the transfer of tangible copies and that it limits only copyright owners’ distribution ...

Private Interest, Public Sphere: Eliminating The Use Of Commercial Bail Bondsmen In The Criminal Justice System, Thanithia Billings 2016 Boston College Law School

Private Interest, Public Sphere: Eliminating The Use Of Commercial Bail Bondsmen In The Criminal Justice System, Thanithia Billings

Boston College Law Review

The decision to grant bail is the first contact that a judge has with a defendant. If a defendant is unable to pay the set bail amount, this inability affects nearly every aspect of the defendant’s case from beginning to end. Despite attempts to ensure insolvency does not solely determine pretrial detention, the current bail system, in many cases, ensures just that. Special interest groups, specifically the bail bond industry, oppose any reform efforts that aim to decrease the use of money in the administration of bail. Defendants unable to afford a bail bondsman can spend weeks, months, and ...
