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 ...

Quando La Legislazione Può Essere Un Ostacolo Alla Libera Circolazione Di Prodotti Alimentari: Il Caso Del "Semaforo Nutrizionale", Luis González Vaqué 2016 Asociación Iberoamericana para el Dereho Alimentario

Quando La Legislazione Può Essere Un Ostacolo Alla Libera Circolazione Di Prodotti Alimentari: Il Caso Del "Semaforo Nutrizionale", Luis González Vaqué

Luis González Vaqué

È stato scritto molto sul criticato (e criticabile) Regolamento (UE) n. 1169/2011 relativo alla fornitura di informazioni sugli alimenti ai consumatori. ‘Brevitatis causae’, nel presente articolo ci occuperemo in particolare delle disposizioni relative all'etichettatura nutrizionale, non applicabili subito dopo l'entrata in vigore di tale Regolamento; si tratta di un insieme di regole ambigue e confuse, la cui applicazione può supporre un reale e potenziale ostacolo alla libera circolazione dei prodotti alimentari all'interno dell'Unione Europea (UE), vale a dire, tutto il contrario di quello che dovrebbe proporsi come obiettivo…

El Reglamento (Ue) 2015/2283 Relativo A Los ‘Novel Foods’: Su Potencial Impacto En El Sector Agropecuario, Luis González Vaqué, Leticia A. Bourges

Luis González Vaqué

El recientemente adoptado Reglamento sobre los “Novel Foods” tiene por objeto mejorar las condiciones que permitan a las empresas poder comercializar más fácilmente alimentos nuevos e innovadores en la UE, manteniendo siempre un elevado nivel de seguridad alimentaria para los consumidores europeos.

Un nuevo alimento es aquel que no se consumió ...

Micro-Housing In Seattle: A Case For Community Participation In Novel Land Use Decisions, Patrick Carter 2016 Seattle University School of Law

Micro-Housing In Seattle: A Case For Community Participation In Novel Land Use Decisions, Patrick Carter

Seattle University Law Review

Rather than relying solely on the formal interpretations of government regulators invited by the structure of local zoning ordinances, the City of Seattle should adopt a process that invites community-based mediation and problem-solving when a significant shift in housing density is contemplated in a developer’s proposal. Greater resident participation in development projects allows the City of Seattle to better support those residents in their reliance interests arising from zoning ordinances while simultaneously furthering the policies that underpin urban zoning. This is especially true when such development projects raise the possibility of substantial impacts on the character of a community ...

The Impact Of International Agreements On European Union Food Law, Luis González Vaqué, Isabel Segura Roda 2016 Asociación Iberoamericana para el Dereho Alimentario

The Impact Of International Agreements On European Union Food Law, Luis González Vaqué, Isabel Segura Roda

Luis González Vaqué

This paper discusses how international agreements affect the development of Food Law in both MemberStates and the EU itself. The relevance of this topic lies in the major structural changes currently affecting the whole agri-food system as a result of two conflicting trends which are more than just political or economic: on the one hand, the seemingly inevitable process of globalization, and on the other, the growing trend towards (re)localizing production, trade and consumption.

Privatization Of Water Desalination: The Need To Balance Governmental And Corporate Control In California, Melissa Lee

The Global Business Law Review

This note argues that California has to create regulations that prevent complete privatization of desalination facilities and protect the public's right to the water. This note provides a model that should be adopted by California in order to safeguard the water and community. There must be legislations and regulations to answer important issues of water rights and distribution of the desalinated water.

Cybersecurity, Data Breaches, And The Economic Loss Doctrine In The Payment Card Industry, David W. Opderbeck 2016 University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law

Cybersecurity, Data Breaches, And The Economic Loss Doctrine In The Payment Card Industry, David W. Opderbeck

Maryland Law Review

Data breaches are pervasive and costly. Recent civil data breach cases have centered on the consumer credit card payment chain in the retail industry. An important issue in such cases is whether the economic loss doctrine should bar negligence claims for purely pecuniary losses suffered by a non-negligent party, such as an issuing bank or a federal credit union that must incur costs to reimburse cardholders for the fraudulent use of stolen card numbers.

The economic loss doctrine should not bar these claims. Large-scale data networks, such as consumer credit card networks, often entail significant network externalities. These include externalities ...


Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Law Enforcement: An Empirical Review, Christopher L. Peterson 2016 S.J. Quinney College of Law, University of Utah

Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Law Enforcement: An Empirical Review, Christopher L. Peterson

Utah Law Faculty Scholarship

In the aftermath of the U.S. financial crisis, Congress created a new federal agency — the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) — with the goal of fashioning a more just and efficient American consumer finance market. The CFPB now serves as the U.S. Government’s primary regulator and civil law enforcement agency governing consumer lending, payment systems, debt collection, and other consumer financial services. In its first four years of enforcing federal consumer protection laws, the CFPB has announced over a hundred different law enforcement cases forcing banks and other financial companies to relinquish over $11 billion in customer refunds ...


The Arc And Architecture Of Private Enforcement Regimes In The United States And Europe: A View Across The Atlantic, Jason Rathod, Sandeep Veheesan 2016 Founding Partner, Migliaccio & Rathod LLP, Washington D.C.

The Arc And Architecture Of Private Enforcement Regimes In The United States And Europe: A View Across The Atlantic, Jason Rathod, Sandeep Veheesan

University of New Hampshire Law Review

The United States and Europe have traditionally taken very different approaches to the regulation of harmful conduct. Previously, European nations relied almost entirely on the public enforcement of laws, whereas the United States relied on a mix of public and private actors. In the United States, private rights of action have played a central role deterring illegal conduct—and, in fact, provided greater deterrence than public enforcers in some areas of law. They have also allowed injured parties to obtain compensation. Despite their very different histories, the private enforcement systems in the United States and Europe are showing signs of ...
