Actually, You Don’T Have To Show Your Work: The Arkansas Court Of Appeals Tells Trial Courts That When They Award Attorneys’ Fees In Domestic Relations Cases, They Need Not Explain The Basis For The Awards Or The Basis For The Amount Of The Awards, Terrence Cain Jun 2023

Actually, You Don’T Have To Show Your Work: The Arkansas Court Of Appeals Tells Trial Courts That When They Award Attorneys’ Fees In Domestic Relations Cases, They Need Not Explain The Basis For The Awards Or The Basis For The Amount Of The Awards, Terrence Cain

University of Arkansas at Little Rock Law Review

Arkansas follows the “American Rule,” which is that each litigant is responsible for his or her own attorneys’ fees unless a statute says otherwise. This rule is not without exceptions, however, and one such exception is the “domestic relations exception,” which says that Arkansas’s trial courts have the inherent authority to award attorneys’ fees in domestic relations cases. Between 2016 and 2021, the Arkansas Court of Appeals decided cases with attorneys’ fees awards ranging from $14,190 to $36,284.60, which one judge of that court remarked evidenced an ever-escalating amount of fee awards in domestic relations cases.

Financial Innovation And Unforeseen Consequences: Spacs, Sec Lending, And Shorts, Christian A. Johnson Dec 2022

Financial Innovation And Unforeseen Consequences: Spacs, Sec Lending, And Shorts, Christian A. Johnson

University of Arkansas at Little Rock Law Review

Although publicly traded “special purpose acquisition companies” (SPAC) have been trading for decades, the effect of the unique shareholder rights found in SPAC shares should be fully studied and compared with the rights of publicly traded non-SPAC shares. Because of their differences, PAC shares will not necessarily behave in the same way as non-SPAC shares in certain situations. The short selling of SPAC shares offers a useful case study as well as lessons for regulators, investors, and short sellers about the unforeseen and unintended consequences of financial innovation in the other-wise understood corner of securities lending and short selling of …

Top Ten Issues In De-Spac Securities Litigation, Wendy Gerwick Couture Dec 2022

Top Ten Issues In De-Spac Securities Litigation, Wendy Gerwick Couture

University of Arkansas at Little Rock Law Review

I am delighted to contribute to this symposium on special purpose acquisition companies (SPACs). The securities litigation associated with the de-SPAC transaction is at an early stage, but courts are already wrestling with a number of unsettled issues that cast a mirror on SPACs and the securities laws more broadly. As these issues are resolved, they will affect the future of de-SPAC transactions as well as the regulatory environment in which they operate. In this essay, I identify ten such issues, drawing from the pleadings, briefings, and hearings in pending de-SPAC securities cases, with the goal of highlighting the key …

Is Title Vii A “Civility Code” Only For Union Activities?, L. Camille Hebert Oct 2022

Is Title Vii A “Civility Code” Only For Union Activities?, L. Camille Hebert

University of Arkansas at Little Rock Law Review

Changes to labor law by the National Labor Relations Board are nothing new; changes in Presidential administrations often result in changes to the law, based on differences in philosophy by new majorities of the Board toward the proper interpretation of the National Labor Relations Act. But in2020, the Board made a fundamental change to long-standing interpretations of the Act’s protections for union and other concerted activities, not based on the Act itself, but based on what it said were the mandates of the anti-discrimination laws for employers to prevent harassment and discrimination. The Board contended that the former context-driven standards …
