Sobre Homogeneidad Y Delimitación De La Clase En Las Acciones Colectivas De Consumidores. (Critica A Un Fallo)., Gabriel Martinez Medrano

Gabriel Martinez Medrano

La presente nota critica la solución adoptada por el Juez de Primera Instancia en la acción colectiva PADEC PREVENCION ASESORAMIENTO Y DEFENSA DEL CONSUM. C/ CITIBANK N.A. S/ SUMARISIMO, sentencia de fecha 8 de octubre de 2009, por la cual se rechazó una acción colectiva pretendida por una asociación de consumidores, utilizándose como argumento para el rechazo del caso la falta de delimitación de la clase representada y la consecuente falta de homogeneidad en el reclamo de los miembros de la clase.


Goodbye Boiler-Plate: Practical Advice For Drafters Of Domestic And International Arbitration Agreements, Pamela Fulmer, Noel Rodriguez, M. Anderson Berry Nov 2009

Goodbye Boiler-Plate: Practical Advice For Drafters Of Domestic And International Arbitration Agreements, Pamela Fulmer, Noel Rodriguez, M. Anderson Berry

M. Anderson Berry

Parties agree to arbitrate disputes because, among other things, arbitration can be quicker and more flexible than judicial proceedings. This leads to advantages that all parties desire: decreased costs and better predictability of outcome. However, problems arise in domestic and international arbitrations that may defeat these advantages. As this article explains, well thought‐out and effective arbitration provisions can significantly reduce the incidence of these problems. While primarily relying on specific examples from the U.S. domestic sphere, this article also applies to the international sphere unless otherwise indicated.

The core assertion of this article is this: instead of cutting and pasting …

Arbitration As An Alternative Means Of Settlement Of Disputes Arising Out Of Thailand's State Contracts Involving Foreign Direct Investments, Patcharang Chaiworamukkul Nov 2009

Arbitration As An Alternative Means Of Settlement Of Disputes Arising Out Of Thailand's State Contracts Involving Foreign Direct Investments, Patcharang Chaiworamukkul

Theses and Dissertations

This dissertation examines how the Office of the Attorney General of Thailand's mandates in reviewing state contracts might be improved in order to help enhance greater FDI flow toward Thailand. International arbitration would be stipulated within the "settlement of disputes" clause included in a state contract so as to assure and gain foreign investor's confidence. This dissertation has been conducted by examining all levels of relevant national legislation as well as international law, especially those international obligations that Thailand has entered into. Based upon such examination, there are at least two (2) problems and obstacles that make the application of …

A Framework For Automatic Sla Creation, Halina Kaminski, Mark Perry Oct 2009

A Framework For Automatic Sla Creation, Halina Kaminski, Mark Perry

Mark Perry

Negotiation is fundamental to business. Increased automation of business to business or business to customer interaction is demanding efficient but flexible systems that can manage the negotiation process with minimal direct human intervention. Industries that provide online services rely on Service Level Agreements as the basis for their contractual relationship. Here we look at a means for generating these with a negotiating tool (SLA Negotiation Manager) that complies with e-negotiation rules and creates the agreements from existing business objectives.


Intent To Contract, Gregory Klass Oct 2009

Intent To Contract, Gregory Klass

Georgetown Law Faculty Publications and Other Works

There is a remarkable difference between black-letter contract laws of the United States and England. In England, the existence of a contract is supposedly conditioned on the parties' intent to be legally bound, while section 21 of the Second Restatement of Contracts states that "[n]either real nor apparent intention that a promise be legally binding is essential to the formation of a contract." There are also differences within U.S. law on the issue. While section 21 describes courts' approach to most contracts, the parties' intent to contact can be a condition of validity of preliminary agreements, domestic agreements and social …

Success, Dominance, And Interoperability, Alan Devlin, Michael Jacobs, Bruno Peixoto Oct 2009

Success, Dominance, And Interoperability, Alan Devlin, Michael Jacobs, Bruno Peixoto

Indiana Law Journal

In September 2007, the European Court of First Instance (CFI) ruled that Microsoft violated the European Union's competition law by failing to provide certain of its rivals with proprietary computer protocols that would have enabled them to make their products fully "interoperable" with Microsoft's dominant operating system. In the process, the court suggested that an owner of certain kinds of dominant intellectual property is obliged to share its property with rivals to the extent necessary to allow those rivals to compete "viably" with the dominant firm. Thus, in theory, should protocol sharing fail to achieve the requisite degree of "viability, …

Maybe Dick Speidel Was Right About Court Adjustment, Robert A. Hillman Sep 2009

Maybe Dick Speidel Was Right About Court Adjustment, Robert A. Hillman

Cornell Law Faculty Publications

In a symposium to honor Professor Richard Speidel, a giant in the field of contract and commercial law for over four decades, this contribution argues that Speidel may have been correct in asserting that, in limited circumstances, court adjustment of disrupted long-term contracts makes sense. I assert that nothing courts have decided or writers have analyzed since the ALCOA case proves that court adjustment is wrong-headed. But, as with so many policy issues, we may never identify the "best" judicial approach to disrupted long-term contracts because resolution depends on too many variables and unknowns.

The Company And Its Directors As Co-Conspirators, Pey Woan Lee Sep 2009

The Company And Its Directors As Co-Conspirators, Pey Woan Lee

Research Collection Yong Pung How School Of Law

In Nagase Singapore Pte Ltd v Ching Kai Huat and Lim Leong Huat v Chip Hup Hup Kee Construction Pte Ltd, the High Court of Singapore affirmed the proposition that a company may, like a natural person, conspire with its director to inflict harm on a third person even if the latter is its “directing mind and will”. In both cases, the courts’ focus was directed at a conceptual enquiry, ie, whether a company, whose “mind” is the same as that of its director, could properly be said to have “combined” or “agreed” to conspire. This article argues, however, that …

Protect Our Children, Jenny Meyen, Donna M. Hughes Dr. Aug 2009

Protect Our Children, Jenny Meyen, Donna M. Hughes Dr.

Donna M. Hughes

There is something very disturbing about a business that advertises they are for “men and children” and evidence exists that this business has sexual acts occurring in the same building. That business is Gateway Barber and they advertise that they do haircuts, but that is not the only thing they do. According to the internet they are known as Salon 657 and described as offering erotic services. Gateway Barber is located on West Main Road in between two family restaurants. By all appearances one would assume that this is a “family business”. 


Re-Examining Investor Protection In The Eu And Us, John Ja Burke Aug 2009

Re-Examining Investor Protection In The Eu And Us, John Ja Burke

John JA Burke

The year 2009 is a propitious time to evaluate systems of investor protection in financial markets as global bank losses exceed the 1 trillion mark and market losses equally exceed the 1 trillion mark. Prior to the Global Financial Crisis, the European Union enacted sweeping legislation to reform its system of investor protection. The Markets in Financial Instruments Directive [MiFID] is the regulatory equivalent of the deregulatory 1987 “Big Bang” that shaped the current European financial markets. It also applies to one of the world’s largest trading regions. This article examines select investor protection provisions of MiFID and their analogues …
