Drawing Lines In Shifting Sands: The U.S. Supreme Court's Mixed Messages On Erisa Preemption Imperil Health Care Reform, Mary Ann Chirba 2010 Boston College Law School

Drawing Lines In Shifting Sands: The U.S. Supreme Court's Mixed Messages On Erisa Preemption Imperil Health Care Reform, Mary Ann Chirba

Boston College Law School Faculty Papers

This article explains how and why the U.S. Supreme Court’s increasingly erratic preemption jurisprudence has fueled a health care system that routinely harms patients, frustrates health care providers, and derails state reform efforts. It begins by describing the mechanics of ERISA preemption, and then analyzes the Court’s 30 year odyssey from no preemption of state law claims against managed care payers, to broad preemption, retreating to limited preemption and, for now at least, trending again toward broad preemption. This is an extremely unstable area of the law which, at this point, demands not just an update but ...


Langdell And The Invention Of Legal Doctrine, Catharine P. Wells 2010 Boston College Law School

Langdell And The Invention Of Legal Doctrine, Catharine P. Wells

Boston College Law School Faculty Papers

This paper addresses two related questions. The first relates to Langdell and his development of a doctrinal theory of contract law. The substance and method of Langdell’s work has not been well understood and this paper uses a variety of historical materials to remedy this problem. It begins with a review of contract law prior to Langdell. Contract law at this time was in a very primitive state. The available treatises were confusing and the cases themselves offered little guidance for predicting future case outcomes. The paper then proceeds to examine Langdell’s method by describing certain logic texts ...

The Institutional Dynamics Of Transition Relief, Jonathan Masur, Jonathan Remy Nash 2010 University of Chicago

The Institutional Dynamics Of Transition Relief, Jonathan Masur, Jonathan Remy Nash

Journal Articles

Whether and how to provide transition relief from a change in legal regime is a question of critical importance. Legislatures and agencies effect changes to the law constantly, and affected private actors often seek relief from those changes, at least in the short term. Scholarship on transition relief therefore has focused almost entirely on examining when transition relief might be justified and now recognizes that there may be settings where relief from legal transitions is appropriate. Yet largely absent from these treatments is an answer to the question of which institutional actor is best positioned to decide when legal transition ...


Arbitration Clauses In Ceo Employment Contracts: An Empirical And Theoretical Analysis, Erin O'Hara O'Connor, Kenneth Martin, Randall Thomas 2010 Florida State University College of Law

Arbitration Clauses In Ceo Employment Contracts: An Empirical And Theoretical Analysis, Erin O'Hara O'Connor, Kenneth Martin, Randall Thomas

Scholarly Publications

A bill currently pending in Congress would render unenforceable mandatory arbitration clauses in all employment contracts. Some perceive these provisions as employer efforts to deprive employees of important legal rights. Company CEOs are firm employees, and, unlike most other firm employees, they can actually negotiate their employment contracts, very often with attorney assistance. Moreover, many CEO employment contracts are publicly available, so they can be examined empirically. In this paper, we ask whether CEOs bargain to include binding arbitration provisions in their employment contracts. After exploring the theoretical arguments for and against including such provisions in these agreements, we use ...
