Enforcement Of Foreign Money-Judgments In The United States: In Search Of Uniformity And International Acceptance, Ronald A. Brand Jan 1991

Enforcement Of Foreign Money-Judgments In The United States: In Search Of Uniformity And International Acceptance, Ronald A. Brand

Articles

When international trade and investment increase, so does the need for satisfactory means of dispute resolution. Dispute resolution in national courts requires that litigants consider not only the likelihood of a favorable judgment but also the ability to collect on that judgment. In cases where the defendant’s assets lie in another jurisdiction, collection is possible only if the second jurisdiction will recognize the first jurisdiction’s judgment.

In the international arena, enforcement of United State judgments overseas is often possible only if the United States court rendering the judgment would enforce a similar decision of the foreign enforcing court ...

Doubting Donald: A Reply To Professor Donald Galloway's 'Critical Mistakes', Richard F. Devlin Fsrc Jan 1991

Doubting Donald: A Reply To Professor Donald Galloway's 'Critical Mistakes', Richard F. Devlin Fsrc

Articles, Book Chapters, & Popular Press

In a recent article Professor Galloway has argued that supporters of the Critical Legal Studies perspective make five fundamental errors in their analyses of liberal theory and as a result have failed in their deconstructive agenda. In this essay Professor Devlin replies to these criticisms and posits that Galloway's essay in retrieval is itself subject to the very same errors of which he accuses the "crits". Moreover, it is argued that the nature of Galloway 's partial defence of liberalism confirms rather than denies the accuracy of critical assessments.

Authority And Responsibility: The Jurisprudence Of Deference, Joseph Vining Jan 1991

Authority And Responsibility: The Jurisprudence Of Deference, Joseph Vining

Articles

he connection between authority and responsibility is such that the one cannot be thought of without the other. In legal method, close reading and rereading of a text marks it as an authoritative text; the presupposition of mind which is necessary to close reading is presupposition of a responsible mind. In the working of institutions that embody authority, the disposition to follow the decisions and statements of a person responsible for a matter inevitably rests upon a presupposition that the decisions and statements followed are those of the responsible person. As that presupposition fades with bureaucratization of decision and writing ...


Revitalizing Public Interest Lawyering In The 1990'S: The Story Of One Effort To Address The Problem Of Homelessness, Ronald Slye, Rebecca Arbogast, Roger L. Barnett, Leslie Kim Treiger Jan 1991

Revitalizing Public Interest Lawyering In The 1990'S: The Story Of One Effort To Address The Problem Of Homelessness, Ronald Slye, Rebecca Arbogast, Roger L. Barnett, Leslie Kim Treiger

Faculty Articles

Despite annual exhortations to graduating law students to accept the responsibilities as well as the benefits of entering the legal profession, the prognosis for public interest law in the 1990's is uncertain. There have been significant decreases in federal and private funding of public interest organizations, sweeping changes in the composition of the federal judiciary, and a decline in the matriculation of public interest lawyers due to the increasing salary gap between the private and public sector. Together these factors raise serious questions about the future effectiveness of the traditional model of the full-time public interest litigator and call ...

A Normative Theory Of Public Law Remedies, Susan Sturm Jan 1991

A Normative Theory Of Public Law Remedies, Susan Sturm

Faculty Scholarship

The remedial process in public law litigation is a practice in search of a theory. Courts are actively engaged in attempting to remedy violations of constitutional and statutory norms in complex organizational settings. The traditional adversary conception of adjudication has proven inadequate to the task of structuring remedies and promoting compliance in these settings. In response, lawyers, judges, and litigants are employing a variety of innovative roles and processes that do not conform to the accepted adjudicative ideal. Remedial activity in public law litigation frequently entails negotiation, informal dialogue, ex parte communication, broad participation by actors who are not formally ...


Improving The Procedure For Resolving Hearsay Issues, Richard D. Friedman Jan 1991

Improving The Procedure For Resolving Hearsay Issues, Richard D. Friedman

Articles

In this article, I propose two changes in the way hearsay issues are usually resolved. First, in some circumstances courts should divide the burdens of producing the declarant-for example, by imposing the physical burden on the proponent and the financial burden on the opponent. Second, no matter how the declarant is produced as a witness, she should ordinarily testify as part of the proponent's case, subject to cross-examination by the opponent. If the declarant does become a witness, the admissibility of her out-of-court statement should not be resolved until her current testimony about the underlying events is received.
