The Judicial Treatment Of The Automobile Dealer Franchise Act, J. Patrick Martin Dec 1963

The Judicial Treatment Of The Automobile Dealer Franchise Act, J. Patrick Martin

Michigan Law Review

The representatives of the auto industry initially viewed the act with a jaundiced eye and warned that this special class legislation6 would radically change the existing case law by allowing the dealer to win where formerly he would have lost. However, the court decisions under the act have not borne out such dire predictions. This discussion will examine what has, in fact, been the judicial interpretation and treatment of the act.


Right Of A Surviving Partner To Purchase A Deceased Partner's Interest Under The Uniform Partnership Act, Charles R. Frederickson Nov 1963

Right Of A Surviving Partner To Purchase A Deceased Partner's Interest Under The Uniform Partnership Act, Charles R. Frederickson

Michigan Law Review

This discussion is intended to demonstrate that, under the act, the likelihood of fraud should no longer be so controlling a factor as to require invariably a liquidation sale of partnership assets when a court of equity has within its supervisory powers the ability to protect fully all of the parties involved when a partnership is dissolved by death.

Trusts-Trustees-Investment Duties Of Trustees And The Problem Of Unduly-Conservative Trust Investments, Lawrence Hirsch S.Ed. Jun 1963

Trusts-Trustees-Investment Duties Of Trustees And The Problem Of Unduly-Conservative Trust Investments, Lawrence Hirsch S.Ed.

Michigan Law Review

This comment will first examine the trustee's investment duties, particularly those relating to investments in securities, and then consider the factors which have brought to the fore the problem of the unduly-conservative trust investment. On the basis of this examination, it may be determined whether the present law in this area provides the beneficiary with adequate safeguards against the unduly-conservative investment. Finally, assuming such safeguards have not been provided, some suggested remedies for this situation will be considered, including the possible imposition of a duty upon trustees to invest at least part of the trust funds in common stock.

Facts And Figures Concerning Executions In California, 1938-1962, Geroge E. Danielson Apr 1963

Facts And Figures Concerning Executions In California, 1938-1962, Geroge E. Danielson

California Assembly

The purpose of this report is to present as much statistical material as is now available relating to those persons who have suffered the death penalty in California.

This study is prompted by the current debate on whether the California Legislature should enact a moratorium on the death penalty during the 1963 General Session. In making their judgments on that grave question the members of the Legislature need to, consider and evaluate all available factual information. Unfortunately we have observed that, except for the moral question, the discussion on all sides has been noted chiefly for an abundance of undocumented ...


Securities Exchange Act Of 1934--Cml Remedies Based Upon Illegal Extension Of Credit In Violation Of Regulation T, Robert G. Lane Mar 1963

Securities Exchange Act Of 1934--Cml Remedies Based Upon Illegal Extension Of Credit In Violation Of Regulation T, Robert G. Lane

Michigan Law Review

Following the stock market crash of 1929, there was considerable agitation for the regulation, and even the elimination, of the purchasing of securities on credit. Indeed, the extension of credit for the purchasing of securities became an issue in the 1932 presidential campaign and finally, in 1934, came under direct federal control. Although the federal regulations were intended to eliminate the hazards associated with the extension of credit for the purchasing of securities, all the available evidence indicates that the substantial amount of credit in the stock market was a significant factor in pushing up prices during the bull market ...

Political Thickets And Crazy Quilts: Reapportionment And Equal Protection, Robert B. Mckay

Michigan Law Review

If asked to identify the two most important cases decided by the Supreme Court of the United States in the twentieth century, informed observers would be likely to name, in whichever order, Brown v. Board of Education and Baker v. Carr.


The Administraton's Anti-Literacy Test Bill: Wholly Constitutional But Wholly Inadequate, William W. Van Alstyne Feb 1963

The Administraton's Anti-Literacy Test Bill: Wholly Constitutional But Wholly Inadequate, William W. Van Alstyne

Michigan Law Review

The nature of American national government has undergone a profound metamorphosis, moving from the near oligarchy which characterized the system as established in 1789 to the imperfectly representative government which it is today. At the time the Constitution was ratified, all restrictions then imposed by the several states on the right to vote for state and federal electors were preserved. These various limitations on the franchise restricted the active body politic to approximately four percent of the total population. Disfranchisement applied then, as now, to those under twenty-one, to those lacking sufficient residence in a given community, to the insane ...

Territorial Courts And The Law: Unifying Factors In The Development Of American Legal Institutions-Pt.Ii-Influences Tending To Unify Territorial Law, William Wirt Blume, Elizabeth Gaspar Brown Jan 1963

Territorial Courts And The Law: Unifying Factors In The Development Of American Legal Institutions-Pt.Ii-Influences Tending To Unify Territorial Law, William Wirt Blume, Elizabeth Gaspar Brown

Michigan Law Review

With the exception of Kentucky, Vermont, Texas, California, and West Virginia, all parts of continental United States south and west of the present boundaries of the original states came under colonial rule, and were governed from the national capital through territorial governments for varying periods of time. All territories in this area were "incorporated" in the sense that they were destined to become states of the United States. All became states by 1912, leaving only Alaska and Hawaii for future statehood. Now that these territories have become states, it seems desirable to review legal developments in all of these "incorporated ...


Federal Antitrust Law-Mergers-An Updating Of The "Failing Company" Doctrine In The Amended Section 7 Setting, Philip Sotiroff S.Ed. Jan 1963

Federal Antitrust Law-Mergers-An Updating Of The "Failing Company" Doctrine In The Amended Section 7 Setting, Philip Sotiroff S.Ed.

Michigan Law Review

Even though application of section 7 has become increasingly effective, a specific exception to its coverage has been recognized by Congress and the Supreme Court. This exception is commonly referred to as the "failing company" doctrine. In short. the doctrine holds that an acquired or to-be-acquired firm which is in a "failing" condition, or the acquiring corporation, may interpose this condition as a defense to any prosecution under section 7 seeking to prevent or undo the acquisition of the failing company's stock or assets by the other. This discussion will attempt to explore the development of the doctrine, consider ...


Administrative Law-Judicial Control-Injunctive Extension Of The Rate Suspension Period Under The Interstate Commerce Act, John Eppel Jan 1963

Administrative Law-Judicial Control-Injunctive Extension Of The Rate Suspension Period Under The Interstate Commerce Act, John Eppel

Michigan Law Review

Plaintiffs, two interstate carriers and a municipal corporation, and defendants, four railroad companies, were parties to an investigation and suspension proceeding before the Interstate Commerce Commission. Section 15(7) of the Interstate Commerce Act allows the Commission to suspend the effectiveness of rate revisions proposed by carriers for seven months while it is deciding whether to approve them. If no decision is reached by the end of the suspension period, the proposed rates automatically become effective subject to a subsequent determination of their validity by the ICC. Expiration of the order suspending defendants' rate proposals was imminent when, in an ...


Legislative Reapportionment—The Kentucky Legal Context, Robert G. Lawson Jan 1963

Legislative Reapportionment—The Kentucky Legal Context, Robert G. Lawson

Law Faculty Scholarly Articles

In its continuing role as guardian of citizens’ constitutional rights, the Supreme Court in Baker v. Carr unlocked widespread concern for equal representation in state legislatures. Having been suppressed for two decades in which an amazing shift of population has occurred, the question of reapportionment and what to do about it had become one of great importance. In November, 1960, apportionments of 30 state legislatures had been challenged in state and federal courts. In addition, ten cases of an electoral character are presently on the docket of the Supreme Court of the United States.

Apart from the legal implications and ...
