D.R. Horton, Inc. V. Eighth Jud. Dist. Ct, 131 Nev., Adv. Op. 86 (October 29, 2015), Brandonn Grossman

Nevada Supreme Court Summaries

The Nevada Supreme Court considered a Petitioner home builder’s petition for writ relief and appeal of a district court order granting Respondent HOA’s ex parte motion for a stay and enlargement of time for service pursuant to NRS 40.647(2)(b). Ruling on Petitioner’s two writ petitions, the Court held the district court’s grant of a stay was not in error and the NRCP 41(e) five-year limitation period was tolled under the Boren exception to NRCP 41(e). Accordingly, the Court denied both writ petitions.

Formalism And Distrust: Foreign Affairs Law In The Roberts Court, Harlan G. Cohen 2015 University of Georgia

Formalism And Distrust: Foreign Affairs Law In The Roberts Court, Harlan G. Cohen

Scholarly Works

When it comes to foreign relations, the Roberts Court has trust issues. As far as the Court is concerned, everyone — the President, Congress, the lower courts, plaintiffs — has played hard and fast with the rules, taking advantage of the Court’s functionalist approaches to foreign affairs issues. This seems to be the message of the RobertsCourt foreign affairs law jurisprudence.

The Roberts Court has been active in foreign affairs law, deciding cases on the detention and trial of enemy combatants, foreign sovereign immunity, the domestic effect of treaties, the extraterritorial reach of federal statutes, the preemption of state laws, and ...

Democracia, Familia Y Matrimonio, Ramiro De Valdivia Cano 2014 Universidad Católica de Santa María

Democracia, Familia Y Matrimonio, Ramiro De Valdivia Cano

Ramiro De Valdivia Cano

En las "novelas rosa" de la antigüedad se estableció el dogma que señala que sólo la celebración del ritual del matrimonio podría resolver en definitivamente todos los problemas de los héroes y heroínas involucrados. El consumismo de la actualidad sostiene que la solución definitiva es el divorcio. Lo que se necesita es educación.

Summary Of Oxbow Constr. V. Eighth Jud. Dist. Ct., 130 Nev. Adv. Op. 86, Erik Foley

Nevada Supreme Court Summaries

The Court determined that (1) previously leased units become a “residence” under NRS 40.630 when their titles are later transferred to a home purchaser; (2) units previously leased prior to transfer of title to a purchaser are not considered “new” under NRS 40.615; and (3) where there is at least one “new residence” in a multiple unit building, relief is available for construction defects in the limited common areas assigned to that building.


Human Rights Violations By Canadian Companies Abroad: Choc V Hudbay Minerals Inc, Susana C. Mijares Peña 2014 University of Western Ontario, Law Faculty

Human Rights Violations By Canadian Companies Abroad: Choc V Hudbay Minerals Inc, Susana C. Mijares Peña

Western Journal of Legal Studies

Canadian mining corporations operating abroad represent a challenge to the international legal system and Canadian legal system in the field of human rights. Currently, there are no legal mechanisms available to ensure that these corporations abide by international standards and voluntary codes. For this reason, some argue that Canadian courts should be more active in holding Canadian companies accountable for the human rights violations of their affiliates operating abroad. The recent Ontario Superior Court of Justice decision of Choc v Hudbay Minerals suggests that for the first time, a Canadian court is ready to play a regulatory role in preventing ...

Green Building Geography Across The United States: Does Governmental Incentives Or Economic Growth Stimulate Construction?, Darren Prum, Tetsuo Kobayashi 2014 The Florida State University

Green Building Geography Across The United States: Does Governmental Incentives Or Economic Growth Stimulate Construction?, Darren Prum, Tetsuo Kobayashi

Darren A. Prum

As green building activity continues to rise across the country, some state governments decided to create incentives that would motivate developers to voluntarily pursue third party certification for their real estate projects in order to assist in meeting sustainability and environmental goals. Despite the growing number of studies in green buildings, the geography of green buildings and sustainable construction only includes a few studies, which emphasize the lack of green building research from the spatial perspective and their relevance to public policies the lack of green building research from the spatial perspective and their relevance to public policies.

Cooperative Construction in Schools in California

John M. Donley

The construction industry has lost efficiency since 1964, while becoming increasingly more litigious. Schools in California can ill afford the time to allow the construction industry time to fully evolve. It may take years or decades to fully improve the efficiency of, and reduce the conflict within the construction industry.

At the same time, the construction industry has developed new processes to improve efficiency and reduce conflict. These processes are beginning to be broadly embraced by the industry. They all contain cooperative elements. Taken together they represent a new organizing principle ...


Standard Project Alliance Agreements, Chris Slocombe 2014 Bond University

Standard Project Alliance Agreements, Chris Slocombe

Public Infrastructure Bulletin

Alliancing, as a project delivery model, has come a

long way since its beginnings in the North Sea oil &

gas industry, and its subsequent uptake in Australia in

the mid 1990s. Now, almost 20 years after the Wandoo

Alliance, Australia’s first alliance project, alliancing has

created for itself a place in the project delivery model

armoury of most procurers of significant works, both

public and (to a lesser extent) private. Between 2004

and 2009, the total value of alliance projects in the road,

rail and water sectors in New South Wales, Victoria,

Queensland and Western Australia was $32 billion ...


Can We (Anti)Trust Leed?: An Analysis Of The Antitrust Implications For The Green Building Movement, Jessica Alfano 2014 Boston College Law School

Can We (Anti)Trust Leed?: An Analysis Of The Antitrust Implications For The Green Building Movement, Jessica Alfano

Boston College Environmental Affairs Law Review

Sustainable construction and energy efficient structures are en vogue, and a “green building movement” has produced buildings all over the country and the world that are constructed from sustainable, energy efficient materials meant to minimize the building’s impact on the environment. A leader in this movement is the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), a private, non-profit organization that stresses sustainability in all areas of construction. The USGBC’s flagship work is a rating system called Leadership in Environmental Design (LEED) that measures and endorses the sustainability of a building. The success of this movement in general and the ...


A Tale Of Two Codes: The Influence Of Albuquerque And Washington On Green Building, Jeffrey Pike 2014 Boston College Law School

A Tale Of Two Codes: The Influence Of Albuquerque And Washington On Green Building, Jeffrey Pike

Boston College Environmental Affairs Law Review

Green building has become an increasingly important piece of the American economy. Two cases from the past five years addressed this burgeoning field: Air Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute v. City of Albuquerque and Building Industry Association of Washington v. Washington State Building Code Council. As a result of these decisions, legislators would be wise to explicitly evidence their desires when updating or enacting local buildings codes to guard against the potential for severability in the event that the federal Energy Policy and Conservation Act preempts part of the code. So long as they do so, legislators should be able ...

Toward A Jurisprudence Of The Civil Rights Acts, Robin West 2014 Georgetown University Law Center

Toward A Jurisprudence Of The Civil Rights Acts, Robin West

Georgetown Law Faculty Publications and Other Works

What is the nature of the “rights,” jurisprudentially, that the 1964 Civil Rights Act legally prescribed? And, more generally, what is a “civil right”? Today, lawyers tend to think of civil rights and particularly those that originated in the 1964 Act, as antidiscrimination rights: our “civil rights,” on this understanding, are our rights not to be discriminated against, by employers, schools, landlords, property vendors, hoteliers, restaurant owners, and providers of public transportation, no less than by states and state actors, on the basis of race, gender, ethnicity, age, sexuality or disability. Contemporary civil rights scholarship overwhelmingly reflects the same conception ...
