Beyond Triple Identity: The Judicial Transformation Of The Doctrine Of Res Judicata In Egyptian Law, Fatma El Zahraa Ibrahim Khalil Dec 2008

Beyond Triple Identity: The Judicial Transformation Of The Doctrine Of Res Judicata In Egyptian Law, Fatma El Zahraa Ibrahim Khalil

Archived Theses and Dissertations

This thesis explores the judicial transformation of the doctrine of res judicata under Egyptian law through an analysis of sixty-four decisions of Court of Cassation decisions in the period between 1935 and 2007 in civil and commercial matters. The thesis demonstrates that the Egyptian judiciary has almost abandoned the statutory triple identity test that requires identity of parties, object and cause. The judiciary developed a test of issue-identity to determine the extent to which issues decided in a previous decision bind its parties in subsequent proceedings. The judiciary uses inconsistent wording in applying this test. There is little clear scholarly …


El Aval, Carlos Molina Sandoval Nov 2008

El Aval, Carlos Molina Sandoval

Carlos Molina Sandoval

El aval ha sido caracterizado como la garantía cambiaria del pago de una letra de cambio o pagaré a su vencimiento, que reviste todos los caracteres de las obligaciones cartulares, es decir, constituye una obligación unilateral de voluntad literal autónoma y formal, sometida al rigor cambiario; garantía adicional y objetiva, de pago de la letra o del pagaré; garantiza la extinción del crédito incorporado en el documento y con relación al pago de dicha obligación. Por ello, el aval, como garantía cambiaria que es, goza de los caracteres de literalidad, incondicionalidad, abstracción, autonomía e independencia. A ello, hay que sumarle …


The Unconscionability Game: Strategic Judging And The Development Of Federal Arbitration Law, Aaron-Andrew P. Bruhl Nov 2008

The Unconscionability Game: Strategic Judging And The Development Of Federal Arbitration Law, Aaron-Andrew P. Bruhl

Faculty Publications

This Article uses recent developments in the enforcement of arbitration agreements to illustrate one way in which strategic dynamics can drive doctrinal change. In a fairly short period of time, arbitration has grown from a method of resolving disputes between sophisticated business entities into a phenomenon that pervades the contemporary economy. The United States Supreme Court has encouraged this transformation through expansive interpretations of the Federal Arbitration Act. But not all courts have embraced arbitration so fervently, and therefore case law in this area is marked by tension and conflict. The thesis of this Article is that we can better …

Sales Of Personal Property As Secured Transactions Under Article 9 Of The Uniform Commercial Code, D. Fenton Adams Oct 2008

Sales Of Personal Property As Secured Transactions Under Article 9 Of The Uniform Commercial Code, D. Fenton Adams

University of Arkansas at Little Rock Law Review

The principal focus of Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) has always dealt with transactions intended by the parties to create security interests in personal property. In 1998, the sponsors of the UCC approved a sweeping revision of Article 9; however, the main focus of the Article was not changed. § 9-109(a)(1) of revised Article 9 provides: "[e]xcept as otherwise provided in subsection (c) and (d), this Article applies to (1) a transaction, regardless of its form, that creates a security interest in personal property or fixtures by contract," and § 1-201(37) of the Code, although modified to …


Insource The Shareholding Of Outsourced Employees: A Global Stock Ownership Plan, Robert C. Hockett Oct 2008

Insource The Shareholding Of Outsourced Employees: A Global Stock Ownership Plan, Robert C. Hockett

Cornell Law Faculty Publications

With the American economy stalled and another federal election campaign season well underway, the “outsourcing” of American jobs is again on the public agenda. Latest figures indicate not only that claims for joblessness benefits are up, but also that the rate of American job-exportation has more than doubled since the last electoral cycle. This year’s political candidates have been quick to take note. In consequence, more than at any time since the early 1990s, continued American participation in the World Trade Organization, in the North American Free Trade Agreement, and in the processes of global economic integration more generally appear …

Changing The Paradigm Of Stock Ownership From Concentrated Towards Dispersed Ownership? Evidence From Brazil And Consequences For Emerging Countries, Erica Gorga Sep 2008

Changing The Paradigm Of Stock Ownership From Concentrated Towards Dispersed Ownership? Evidence From Brazil And Consequences For Emerging Countries, Erica Gorga

Cornell Law Faculty Working Papers

This paper analyzes micro-level dynamics of changes in ownership structures. It investigates a unique event: changes in ownership patterns currently taking place in Brazil. It builds upon empirical evidence to advance theoretical understanding of how and why concentrated ownership structures can change towards dispersed ownership.

Commentators argue that the Brazilian capital markets are finally taking off. The number of listed companies and IPOs in the Sao Paulo Stock Exchange (Bovespa) has greatly increased. Firms are migrating to Bovespa’s special listing segments, which require higher standards of corporate governance. Companies have sold control in the market, and the stock market has …

Sovereign Debt Restructuring: Search For An Optimum Voting Threshold, Joy Dey Aug 2008

Sovereign Debt Restructuring: Search For An Optimum Voting Threshold, Joy Dey

Joy Dey

Sovereigns have been defaulting on their debts over decades now. A sovereign debt default necessitates a restructuring of the debt instrument in order to reduce the size of the debt or lengthen the maturity period. One of the methods of debt restructuring is an ‘exchange offer’ where the old debt instrument, for example the bond, is exchanged for new debt instruments with altered terms and conditions, particularly the payment terms. Whereas some investors may agree to such restructuring and accept the exchange offer, others might have different aspirations for their investments. A successful sovereign debt restructuring takes place when the …
