Richmond: Take My Mortgage, Please!, Emily C. Cory Dec 2013

Richmond: Take My Mortgage, Please!, Emily C. Cory

Saint Louis University Public Law Review

The burst of the housing bubble brought challenges for many homeowners, as the value of their homes spiraled downward and many were forced into foreclosure. This, in turn, has caused difficulties for cities, as the vacant and abandoned neighborhoods have become a hub for blight and transience, and the tax base has steadily declined. In an effort to combat these issues, Richmond, California’s mayor, Gayle McLaughlin, has teamed up with Mortgage Resolution Partners, LLC. The pair plans to use Richmond’s power of eminent domain to “take” underwater mortgages and then refinance them, selling the new mortgages to investors. The plan, …

Criticism Of The Testamentary Undue Influence Doctrine In The United States: Lessons For South Africa?, François Du Toit Dec 2013

Criticism Of The Testamentary Undue Influence Doctrine In The United States: Lessons For South Africa?, François Du Toit

Journal of Civil Law Studies

This article analyzes undue influence in the South African law of wills in light of scholarly criticism of the testamentary undue influence doctrine in the United States. The article assesses in particular whether the so-called “undue influence paradox” identified in American scholarship is manifest in the South African law of wills: is testamentary undue influence’s role as guardian of testamentary freedom undermined by the judicial pursuit of family protectionism? The article proceeds, with due recognition of the differences between the American and South African legal traditions, from American scholars’ conceptualization of the paradox and their views on other complexities associated …


Inflation In Enrichment Claims: Reflections On The Brazilian Civil Code, Aimite Jorge Dec 2013

Inflation In Enrichment Claims: Reflections On The Brazilian Civil Code, Aimite Jorge

Journal of Civil Law Studies

Inflation can be one of the risks assumed by the parties to a contract. Notwithstanding, contractual terms may provide for monetary corrections to offset that risk in cases of foreseeable inflation. The same may not hold true, however, for claims based on unjustified enrichment. They may find themselves in the position of innocents because the events that brought about the decline of purchasing power of the currency were unconnected to them. This paper analyses the approach recently favoured in the new Brazilian Civil Code on inflation in enrichment claims. Its focus is on article 884 (headed “enriquecimento sem justa causa”), …


Neoconstitutionalism, Rights, And Natural Law, Juan Cianciardo Dec 2013

Neoconstitutionalism, Rights, And Natural Law, Juan Cianciardo

Journal of Civil Law Studies

Rights are, without a doubt, the most outstanding feature of contemporary legal systems. It can be argued that since the middle of the past century we are immersed in a culture of rights. Neo-constitutionalism is one among other such concepts that has been used to designate and study this phenomenon. The hypothesis we will attempt to address in this paper is that some of the central characters of our culture of rights, here termed as “neo-constitutionalism,” cannot be explained consistently without an explicit reference to natural law.

We will specifically examine the connection between the assertion that there exist natural …
