Civil Rights Claims & Unaffordable Arbitration: Lack Of Employee Access To Arbitration, Christopher C. Cooper Dr. 2010 LAW OFFICE OF CHRISTOPHER COOPER, INC.

Civil Rights Claims & Unaffordable Arbitration: Lack Of Employee Access To Arbitration, Christopher C. Cooper Dr.

Christopher C. Cooper Dr.

The decision by the New York Court of Appeals in Brady v. The Williams Capital Group, L.P., 2010 WL 1068163 (N.Y. Mar. 25, 2010) should cause us to note that some employer mandated arbitration agreements not only take away an employee’s right to sue the employer in court, but as well, impose arbitration costs\expenses on the employee. The employee who lacks funds is unable to make use of the arbitration process. An arbitration provision is not rendered inherently unconscionable because some of the arbitration costs will be imposed on the claimant. See Zobrist v. Verizon Wireless ...

Tax First, Ask Questions Later: Problems Predicting The Effect Of Obama's International Tax Reforms, Timothy H. Shapiro 2010 Stanford Law School

Tax First, Ask Questions Later: Problems Predicting The Effect Of Obama's International Tax Reforms, Timothy H. Shapiro

Timothy H Shapiro

The Obama Administration has proposed a dramatic reworking of the way US corporations are taxed on income they earn outside the US. Although less prominent than other Washington policy debates, these changes are no less contentious. The result is either a fairer tax system yielding the government an extra $210 billion, or the end of US-based multinational corporations, depending on who one asks. Yet both sides of the debate have opted for rhetorical simplicity over accuracy, sidestepping sixty years of theoretical scholarship on the subject. The world economy is a dynamic system, and the current projections of US companies’ reactions ...

The New Uniform Probate Code's Surprising Gender Inequities, Kristine Knaplund 2010 Pepperdine University

The New Uniform Probate Code's Surprising Gender Inequities, Kristine Knaplund

Kristine Knaplund

The new Uniform Probate Code provisions on assisted reproduction include the five critical elements needed to address the broad range of issues in current law and practice, and in general the provisions work well. But as the sections now stand, they pose a delicious irony regarding children conceived and born long after a parent’s death: they allow a woman, especially a married woman, to alter the property distribution of a man’s estate by having a postmortem conception child, but accord very few men the same power. After centuries of laws giving men complete control over their wives’ property ...

Machine-Or-Transformation Test Hit The Board: Patent-Eligible Subject Matter Following Bilski, Peter L. Ludwig 2010 Franklin Pierce Law Center

Machine-Or-Transformation Test Hit The Board: Patent-Eligible Subject Matter Following Bilski, Peter L. Ludwig

Peter L. Ludwig

In In re Bilski the Federal Circuit held that the machine-or-transformation test is the test to apply to determine subject matter eligibility of process claims under 35 U.S.C. § 101. The en banc majority opinion of the Federal Circuit introduced the machine-or-transformation test based upon Supreme Court precedent. The Supreme Court will soon hand down a ruling letting the public know if this is the test that will be applied to process claims. Although patent practitioners may have a test to apply, application of the test is far from certain.

Universalising The American – Secured Credit And Uncitral, Gerard McCormack 2010 University of Leeds

Universalising The American – Secured Credit And Uncitral, Gerard Mccormack

Gerard McCormack

Abstract - Universalising the American – Secured Credit and UNCITRAL This paper turns the spotlight on harmonisation and modernisation of secured credit law. The whole harmonization and modernization agenda appears to be driven by a desire to remove restrictions on the taking of security. This is because of a widespread belief that a “liberal” secured transactions regime promotes economic growth by widening the availability of credit. But the agenda also has its critics. The law of secured finance embodies cultural attitudes and public policy choices that vary greatly among States. Changes to legal doctrine often mirror changes that have taken place in ...

What Do Clients Of Mediators "Want"?, John Wade 2010 Bond University

What Do Clients Of Mediators "Want"?, John Wade

Law Faculty Publications

Extract:

This title reflects a familiar marketing and ethical question for all service providers – what do clients of plumbers/doctors/psychologists/builders/lawyers etc want?
Predictably, the answers given by anecdote, “theory” and more systematic research are complicated and conflicting. There is a simple answer to every complex question, and it is wrong.
There are three elements in the question – what do the (1) clients of (2) mediators (3) want?
