Does The Supreme Court's Burlington Northern Decision Require Reconsideration Of The Aceto Line Of "Arranger" Liability Cases?, Aaron Gershonowitz 2010 Forchelli, Curto, Crowe, Deegan, Schwartz, Mineo & Coh.

Does The Supreme Court's Burlington Northern Decision Require Reconsideration Of The Aceto Line Of "Arranger" Liability Cases?, Aaron Gershonowitz

Aaron Gershonowitz

The Eighth Circuit’s decision in United States v. Aceto Agricultural Chemicals Corp., 872 F2d 1373 (8th Cir. 1989) represents perhaps the most expansive reading of Superfund "arranger" liability, holding that a corporation can be liable even though the corporation never possessed the waste and made no decisions regarding disposal. The Aceto theory of liability has been followed by several other federal circuit courts of appeals. In Burlington Northern and Santa Fe Railroad Co. v. United States, 129 S. Ct. 1870 (2009) the Supreme Court addressed whether a seller of chemicals could be held liable as an "arranger" when chemicals ...

Comparative Efficiency In International Sales Law, Larry A. Dimatteo, Daniel T. Ostas

Larry A DiMatteo

The article employs the method of the economic analysis of law (EAL) in a comparative context.

The drafting process involved intense negotiation and compromise between representatives of the common and civil law legal traditions. As a result, the CISG provides in an interesting amalgam of civil ...

Cornell Law Faculty Working Papers

Where does one find the foreign investment laws of Botswana? What about the copyright law of the Netherlands, the corporation laws of Japan, or the English translation of the Egyptian Civil Code? Already back in 1991, just before the internet, Wallace Baker remarked that “foreign law has become the daily bread of lawyers everywhere who formally had totally domestic practices.” Since then, the need to access the content of foreign law has increased exponentially. The importance of global access to foreign laws on the internet and how to improve it was recently highlighted at an international Meeting of Experts on ...
