An Approach To The Regulation Of Spanish Banking Foundations, Miguel Martínez 2015 Universidad Pontificia de Comillas

An Approach To The Regulation Of Spanish Banking Foundations, Miguel Martínez

Miguel Martínez

The purpose of this paper is to analyze the legal framework governing banking foundations as they have been regulated by Spanish Act 26/2013, of December 27th, on savings banks and banking foundations. Title 2 of this regulation addresses a construct that is groundbreaking for the Spanish legal system, still of paramount importance for the entire financial system insofar as these foundations become the leading players behind certain banking institutions given the high interest that foundations hold in the share capital of such institutions.

Whiplash: Who's To Blame?, Valerie P. Hans, Juliet Dee 2015 Cornell Law School

Whiplash: Who's To Blame?, Valerie P. Hans, Juliet Dee

Valerie P. Hans

Tom is sitting in his car at an intersection, waiting for the red light to change. Without warning, the car behind him, driven by a distracted mother named Elaine, slams into the rear of Tom's car. After the accident, Tom experiences severe neck pain, which interferes with his work and family life. Who's to blame? If Tom suffered physical injury as a result, then under current legal principles she is responsible for compensating him for his injury. However, research on jury decision making in civil cases suggests that a constellation of psychological, legal and political factors operate together ...

Slaying The Dragon: How The Law Can Help Rehab A Country In Crisis, Samantha Kopf 2015 Pace University School of Law

Slaying The Dragon: How The Law Can Help Rehab A Country In Crisis, Samantha Kopf

Pace Law Review

Motor-vehicle-related deaths consistently topped the accidental death count in the United States for decades. In 2009, for the first time, drug poisoning took over as the number one accidental killer. In 1980, approximately 6,100 people died from drug overdose. In the past ten years, the drug overdose rate for males and females, regardless of race, ethnicity and age, increased. In 2000, 4.1 per 100,000 people died from unintentional drug overdose; in 2010, that number rose to 9.7 per 100,000. The drug overdose epidemic, now the leading cause of unintentional death in the United States, warrants ...


Drive At Your Own Risk: Uber’S Misrepresentations To Uberx Drivers About Insurance Coverage Violate California’S Unfair Competition Law, Jennie Davis 2015 Boston College Law School

Drive At Your Own Risk: Uber’S Misrepresentations To Uberx Drivers About Insurance Coverage Violate California’S Unfair Competition Law, Jennie Davis

Boston College Law Review

Ride-sharing services such as Uber and Lyft have revolutionized the private transportation market. Given the lack of clear regulations over these businesses, however, insurance industry experts disagree with Uber about the adequacy of uberX drivers’ existing insurance coverage. This Note asserts that Uber misleads uberX drivers about the type and amount of coverage available to them, as uberX drivers have no first-party protections in place while they drive around searching for fares. This Note further argues that based on these insurance misrepresentations, Uber may be liable to injured uberX drivers under California’s unfair competition law for engaging in unfair ...

She’S Got A Ticket To Ride: The Ninth Circuit’S Determination In Sachs V. Republic Of Austria That A Ticket Sale By A Common Law Agent Abrogates A Foreign State-Owned Common Carrier’S Sovereign Immunity, Jennifer Lichtman 2015 Boston College Law School

She’S Got A Ticket To Ride: The Ninth Circuit’S Determination In Sachs V. Republic Of Austria That A Ticket Sale By A Common Law Agent Abrogates A Foreign State-Owned Common Carrier’S Sovereign Immunity, Jennifer Lichtman

Boston College Law Review

On December 6, 2013, in Sachs v. Republic of Austria, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, sitting en banc, held that a foreign state-owned common carrier carries on commercial activity in the United States when it sells rail passes through a United States ticket agent. In so holding, the court expanded the scope of jurisdiction over foreign state-owned entities to include claims arising from transactions with common law agents of foreign states. This Comment argues that the Ninth Circuit correctly applied principles of agency law to foreign state-owned common carriers acting through domestic ticket agents, and ...


Standing Up For Industry Standing In Environmental Regulatory Challenges, Charles H. Haake, Raymond B. Ludwiszewski 2015 Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, LLP

Standing Up For Industry Standing In Environmental Regulatory Challenges, Charles H. Haake, Raymond B. Ludwiszewski

Boston College Environmental Affairs Law Review

Article III of the U.S. Constitution limits courts to hearing only cases and controversies. To address this limitation, federal courts have developed the doctrine of standing, which requires a litigant to have suffered a cognizable injury in fact, which was caused by the challenged conduct and that will be redressable by a favorable outcome. Courts have struggled to balance these components and, in practice, different requirements have developed for meeting standing depending on the nature of the case and the type of party bringing suit. This Article explores the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ...


Strict Liability In Cycling Laws To Ready The Roads For Environmentally Friendly Commuting, Colleen Maker 2015 Boston College Law School

Strict Liability In Cycling Laws To Ready The Roads For Environmentally Friendly Commuting, Colleen Maker

Boston College Environmental Affairs Law Review

Because automobiles cause harmful effects on the environment, the United States should encourage bicycling as an alternative means of transportation to automobiles. Many Americans elect not to cycle as a means of transportation out of fear of a collision with an automobile. Such collisions can be devastating physically and financially, and yet, after a bicycle-automobile collision, cyclists often bear the burden of proving negligence in a suit against the driver, and are often left without a remedy for their injuries. Other countries, such as the Netherlands, use a form of strict liability in lawsuits concerning bicycle-automobile collisions, which shifts the ...

Global Trade Impacts: Addressing The Health, Social And Environmental Consequences Of Moving International Freight Through Our Communities, Martha Matsuoka, Andrea Hricko, Robert Gottlieb, Juan Delara

Martha Matsuoka

As ports and goods movement activity expands throughout the United States, a major challenge is how to make the adverse impacts of freight transportation a more central part of economic development, policy and planning discussions and transportation decision making. In 2009, faculty and staff from the Urban & Environmental Policy Institute of Occidental College and from the environmental health sciences and regional equity programs of the University of Southern California (USC) began a study of this evolving global trade and freight transportation system, focusing on areas in the United States where the system is expanding and where community, labor and social ...

Multimodal Transportation Under The Rotterdam Rules: Legal Implications For European Carriage Of Goods And The Quest For Uniformity, Olena Bokareva 2015 Lund University

Multimodal Transportation Under The Rotterdam Rules: Legal Implications For European Carriage Of Goods And The Quest For Uniformity, Olena Bokareva

Olena Bokareva

The increase in intercontinental trade and the modernization of transport infrastructure has transformed the traditional patterns of carriage of goods globally. The transportation by land precedes and follows the sea carriage. These developments led to the growing use of multimodal transportation, which simplifies the door-to-door delivery of goods by different modes of transport under a single contract. The existing transport conventions deal with one specific mode of transport, such as sea, rail, air and inland waterways, while an international mandatory convention related to multimodal transportation is lacking. The previous attempts to create an international legal instrument to govern this type ...


Damage Control: Adapting Transportation To A Changing Climate, Trip Pollard 2015 College of William & Mary Law School

Damage Control: Adapting Transportation To A Changing Climate, Trip Pollard

William & Mary Environmental Law and Policy Review

Sea level rise, extreme weather events, and other problems caused or exacerbated by a changing climate present the most serious long-term threats to transportation worldwide. Recent disasters have carried a hefty price tag, and forecasts call for more frequent and more costly damage to infrastructure and disruptions of services that are central to trade, jobs, food access, national security, health, and personal mobility. It is essential to reduce greenhouse gas pollution to lessen future damage to transportation; however, even if emissions are cut drastically at this point, the impacts of a changing climate will continue for decades. As a result ...
