Empty Creditors And Debt Exchanges, Daniel Hemel 2010 Yale Law School

Empty Creditors And Debt Exchanges, Daniel Hemel

Yale Journal on Regulation

This Comment reviews recent proposals to address the "empty creditor" problem. The author argues that previous proposals would do little to reduce the risk that empty creditors will block debt-for-equity exchanges in order to collect credit default swap payments. The author presents an alternative approach that would limit the dangers of empty crediting by modifying the standardized language of swap agreements. Specifically, the author argues for widening the definition of "credit events" to encompass voluntary debt for- equity exchanges that surpass a certain participation threshold. This reform would benefit the vast majority of credit protection buyers and sellers, while simultaneously ...


Chapter 9 Of The Bankruptcy Code: A Solution In Search Of A Problem, Omer Kimhi 2010 Yale Law School

Chapter 9 Of The Bankruptcy Code: A Solution In Search Of A Problem, Omer Kimhi

Yale Journal on Regulation

As a result of the recent credit crisis, municipal insolvency has become a relevant and important issue. All over America cities are grappling with budget problems, and some of them are even considering bankruptcy. This Article analyzes the municipal bankruptcy process, and inquires whether it provides a sensible solution for urban fiscal crises. In order to examine this question, the Article delves into the prevailing rationales of bankruptcy law-the contractual theory and the fresh start theory. The Article makes the claim that these theories do not adequately explain the municipal bankruptcy process, and that filing for bankruptcy can damage the ...

High Crimes, Not Misdemeanors: Deterring The Production Of Unsafe Food, Rena I. Steinzor 2010 University of Maryland School of Law

High Crimes, Not Misdemeanors: Deterring The Production Of Unsafe Food, Rena I. Steinzor

Faculty Scholarship

In the fall of 2008, Minnesota public health officials became alarmed by an unusually high number of illnesses and deaths caused by salmonella poisoning. Federal and state regulators and the news media eventually traced the outbreak back to products supplied by the Peanut Corporation of America (PCA). Employees shipped batches that tested positive for salmonella from a plant with a leaking roof, mold growing on ceilings and walls, rodent infestation, filthy processing receptacles, and feathers and feces in the air filtration system. Under an agreement with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Georgia state inspectors visited the PCA plant nine ...


Government Speech 2.0, Helen L. Norton, Danielle Keats Citron 2010 University of Maryland School of Law

Government Speech 2.0, Helen L. Norton, Danielle Keats Citron

Faculty Scholarship

New expressive technologies continue to transform the ways in which members of the public speak to one another. Not surprisingly, emerging technologies have changed the ways in which government speaks as well. Despite substantial shifts in how the government and other parties actually communicate, however, the Supreme Court to date has developed its government speech doctrine – which recognizes “government speech” as a defense to First Amendment challenges by plaintiffs who claim that the government has impermissibly excluded their expression based on viewpoint – only in the context of disputes involving fairly traditional forms of expression. In none of these decisions, moreover ...


Review Of Understanding Labor And Employment Law In China, By Ronald C.Brown, Nicholas C. Howson 2010 University of Michigan School of Law

Review Of Understanding Labor And Employment Law In China, By Ronald C.Brown, Nicholas C. Howson

Reviews

Any attempt to analyze China’s comprehensive labor reform over the past three decades faces at least two dilemmas. First, the analyst must confront the task of describing how the Chinese state has dismantled the “work unit” (or danwei)- based “iron rice bowl” employment and entitlements system, replacing that comforting but low-production employment and social security scheme with formally-proclaimed legal rights and institutions apparently designed to protect employees in a functioning labor market. Second, the analyst must track how the state’s commitment (at all levels of government) to implementation of proclaimed legal and institutional protections has waxed and waned ...


Punishment As Suffering, David C. Gray 2010 University of Maryland School of Law

Punishment As Suffering, David C. Gray

Faculty Scholarship

In a series of recent high-profile articles, a group of contemporary scholars argue that the criminal law is a grand machine for the administration of suffering. The machine requires calibration, of course. The main standard we use for ours is objective proportionality. We generally punish more serious crimes more severely and aim to inflict the same punishment on similarly situated offenders who commit similar crimes. In the views of these authors, this focus on objective proportionality makes ours a rather crude machine. In particular, it ignores the fact that 1) different offenders may suffer to a different degree when subjected ...


The Decline Of Investment Banking: Preliminary Thoughts On The Evolution Of The Industry 1996-2008, Robert J. Rhee 2010 University of Maryland School of Law

The Decline Of Investment Banking: Preliminary Thoughts On The Evolution Of The Industry 1996-2008, Robert J. Rhee

Faculty Scholarship

In this paper, I provide a basic, preliminary financial analysis of several prominent, independent investment banks: Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Merrill Lynch, Lehman Brothers, and Bear Stearns. I provide the following data: (1) segmentation of net revenue by products and services, (2) return on average equity, (3) leverage ratio, and (4) debt to equity ratio. Although the data analysis here is very basic, it still tells an interesting narrative of the evolution of the investment banking industry. The investment banking industry has undergone significant change in the twelve-year period 1996 to 2008. In the mid-1990s, banks had a balance mix ...


Case Study Of The Bank Of America And Merrill Lynch Merger, Robert J. Rhee 2010 University of Maryland School of Law

Case Study Of The Bank Of America And Merrill Lynch Merger, Robert J. Rhee

Faculty Scholarship

This is a case study of the Bank of America and Merrill Lynch merger. It is based on the article, Fiduciary Exemption for Public Necessity: Shareholder Profit, Public Good, and the Hobson’s Choice during a National Crisis, 17 Geo. Mason L. Rev. 661 (2010). The case study analyzes the controversial events occurring between the merger signing and closing. It reviews in depth the circumstances under the federal government threatened to fire the board and management of Bank of America unless it consummated the Merrill Lynch acquisition. Among other issues, this case study raises the questions: (1) what is the ...
