Jonathan Pollard: A More Genuine Notion Of Justice, Kenneth Lasson Dec 1993

Jonathan Pollard: A More Genuine Notion Of Justice, Kenneth Lasson

All Faculty Scholarship

Perhaps the president, visibly moved by the film, would sympathize with the moral impulse that drove [Jonathan Pollard] to give vital defense information to Israel. Perhaps he'd likewise equate Nazi Germany with demonic Iraq. Perhaps Mr. [Clinton], currently compiling his own list of presidential pardons, would see to it that the horrendous life sentence handed Pollard in 1985 be commuted to time served.

Particularly galling, though, are the potshots from two former Justice Department prosecutors - the politically ambitious Joseph DiGenova and his former assistant David Geneson - who effectively bargained Pollard out of a trial by promising not to seek ...


Care For Those Who Wore The Uniform, Kenneth Lasson Nov 1993

Care For Those Who Wore The Uniform, Kenneth Lasson

All Faculty Scholarship

Considerations were granted to American war veterans as far back as 1636, when the pilgrims, in the midst of an Indian insurrection, devised a special law providing rights and assistance to those who fought. Various of the early American colonies passed similar laws for disabled veterans, and by the time of the Revolution the benefits concept had been firmly established.

Federal Income Taxation Of U.S. Branches Of Foreign Corporations: Separate Entity Or Separate Rules?, Fred B. Brown

All Faculty Scholarship

Foreign corporations conduct U.S. business activities either through U.S. subsidiaries or U.S. branches. A U.S. subsidiary of a foreign corporation generally is taxed as any other domestic corporation, that is, as a separate taxable entity apart from its foreign parent. In contrast, a U.S. branch of a foreign corporation is not treated as a separate taxable entity; instead, the Code and regulations employ a set of special rules that allocate and apportion to the U.S. branch a portion of the foreign corporation's income in order to determine the net income subject to U ...

The Reunification Of Contract: The Objective Theory Of Consumer Form Contracts, Michael I. Meyerson May 1993

The Reunification Of Contract: The Objective Theory Of Consumer Form Contracts, Michael I. Meyerson

All Faculty Scholarship

Despite the ubiquitousness of standard form contracts in the world of consumer transactions, there is no consensus as to how these contracts ought to be constructed. Some courts continue to treat form contracts as if they were classically negotiated contracts. Others attempt in a variety of ways to factor in the reality that consumers entering into these contracts are not able to negotiate the terms and almost always sign these documents, which are presented on a take-it-or-leave-it basis, without reading them. This article posits that the cause of this continued confusion over form contracts is due to a basic failure ...
