California Egg Toss - The High Costs Of Avoiding Unenforceable Surrogacy Contracts, Jennifer Jackson 2014 University of San Diego

California Egg Toss - The High Costs Of Avoiding Unenforceable Surrogacy Contracts, Jennifer Jackson

Jennifer Jackson

In an emotionally charged decision regarding surrogacy contracts, it is important to recognize the ramifications, costs, and policy. There are advantages to both “gestational carrier surrogacy” contracts and “traditional surrogacy” contracts. However, this paper focuses on the differences between these contracts using case law. Specifically, this paper will focus on the implications of California case law regarding surrogacy contracts. Cases such as Johnson v. Calvert and In Re Marriage of Moschetta provide a clear distinction between these contracts. This distinction will show that while gestational carrier surrogacy contracts are more expensive, public policy and court opinions will provide certainty and ...

Studying Is Dangerous? Possible Federal Remedies For Study Abroad Liability, Robert J. Aalberts, Chad G. Marzen, Darren A. Prum 2014 SelectedWorks

Studying Is Dangerous? Possible Federal Remedies For Study Abroad Liability, Robert J. Aalberts, Chad G. Marzen, Darren A. Prum

Chad G. Marzen

Every year, thousands of U.S. students study abroad for academic credit. Study abroad programs have traditionally garnered strong congressional support, and proponents of the programs emphasize the educational, cultural, and diplomatic benefits from study abroad experiences.

Despite the many benefits of study abroad programs, risks are incurred overseas. In the past several years, a number of incidents have resulted in which students studying abroad have not only incurred physical harm, but in some instances have died while enrolled in a study abroad program. The current liability standards governing study abroad programs are murky. This article not only discusses the ...

The Court determined two issues: 1) whether the six-month statute of limitations set forth in NRCP 60(b) applies to a motion for relief from a divorce decree, and (2) under what circumstances a marital asset adjudicated in court but omitted from the final divorce decree may be partitioned through a motion for relief from judgment.


The Case For Rational Basis Review Of General Suspicionless Searches And Seizures, Richard C. Worf 2014 Touro College Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center

The Case For Rational Basis Review Of General Suspicionless Searches And Seizures, Richard C. Worf

Touro Law Review

This article examines the constitutional status of suspicionless searches and seizures of groups- an exceedingly important question in the age of terror, and a subject recently brought back to the forefront by the searches of subway passengers in New York City. It draws on process theory to argue that when a legislature has authorized a group search or seizure, courts should generally apply rational basis review.

First, other areas of constitutional doctrine exhibit deep trust in the power of groups to protect their interests in political process, and there is no reason why fourth amendment doctrine should not do the ...

Wage War: Backpay Under The Hoffman Decision, Shuaa Tajammul 2014 University of Massachusetts School of Law

Wage War: Backpay Under The Hoffman Decision, Shuaa Tajammul

University of Massachusetts Law Review

This Article discusses the effect of the Hoffman Plastic Compounds decision on backpay as a remedy for illegal immigrants who sue their employers for lost wages. When Congress passed the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 (“IRCA”), it believed it struck at the heart of illegal immigration: the search for employment in the United States. However, the IRCA did not accomplish its stated purpose. In 2002, the Supreme Court ruled that lost wages and backpay were not available as remedies to an employee who obtained a job through IRCA violation and later tried to sue his/her employer. The ...


Squatting: Lifting The Heavy Burden To Evict Unwanted Company, Shannon Dunn McCarthy 2014 University of Massachusetts School of Law

Squatting: Lifting The Heavy Burden To Evict Unwanted Company, Shannon Dunn Mccarthy

University of Massachusetts Law Review

In the later part of 2012, news and media outlets gave widespread attention to the fact that people were living rent-free in homes across the United States while the property owners were left with the burden of evicting the unwanted company in order to gain rightful possession to their property. These stories were not isolated to low incomes areas. News broadcasts shed light on squatters making camp in high-end realty valued in the millions. At the same time, news outlets in the United Kingdom were reporting on the squatting topic, but with a different angle – a recent law criminalizing squatting ...


Keeping Up With The Game: The Use Of The Nash Bargaining Solution In The Calculation Of Reasonable Royalty Damages In Patent Infringement Cases, Lance E. Wyatt Jr. 2014 SelectedWorks

Keeping Up With The Game: The Use Of The Nash Bargaining Solution In The Calculation Of Reasonable Royalty Damages In Patent Infringement Cases, Lance E. Wyatt Jr.

Lance E Wyatt Jr.

Determining damages are an integral stage in the patent litigation process. Since 1970, reasonable royalty damages have been calculated using the factors set forth in the seminal decision, Georgia-Pacific Corp. v. United States Plywood Corp. However, these factors are prone to manipulation and abuse by damages experts. Using a solution to a two-person bargaining situation developed by John Nash, Jr. in 1950, damages experts have utilized the Nash Bargaining Solution as a method to calculate reasonable royalty damages in patent infringement cases. Since its introduction in patent infringement cases, courts have been reluctant to admit the use of the NBS ...
