Power to Modify Article 5 Obligations Under 1-102(3) and 1-203. see Sections 5-103(c) and 5-116(c) of Revised Article 5.

Persons speaking for issuing banks argued strongly in the Article 5 revision process that complete freedom of contract should prevail and that no provision should be made invariable . They argued successfully for the removal in current Section 5-109 of references to due care and they argued successfully against the inclusion of any similar obligation elsewhere in Article 5. Consequently Section 1-102(3) has no place to get a grip in Article 5--because no obligations of due care are ...


Wrong Side Of The Mountain: A Comment On Bad Faith's Unnatural History, Robert H. Jerry Ii Jan 1994

Wrong Side Of The Mountain: A Comment On Bad Faith's Unnatural History, Robert H. Jerry Ii

Faculty Publications

In this Comment, I will argue that courts have ignored bad faith's contractual heritage and have undervalued contract law's ability to respond to insurer misconduct. To draw upon Professor Powers's thoughtful analysis, I believe that courts invoked the tort paradigm before it was clear that the contract paradigm was inadequate. For lack of data, I will stop short of recommending where we should go from here, but I will suggest that our behavior in the face of bad faith liability in tort may have changed no less than the environment and that the perceived relative calm in ...

Delaware Fiduciary Duty Law After Qvc And Technicolor: A Unified Standard (And The End Of Revlon Duties?), Lawrence A. Cunningham, Charles M. Yablon Jan 1994

Delaware Fiduciary Duty Law After Qvc And Technicolor: A Unified Standard (And The End Of Revlon Duties?), Lawrence A. Cunningham, Charles M. Yablon

Boston College Law School Faculty Papers

This Article seeks to analyze and understand Paramount Communications, Inc. v. QVC Network, Inc. and Cede & Co. v. Technicolor, Inc. as part of a movement in Delaware fiduciary law toward a single, more unified standard, away from doctrinal fragmentation. In addition, the Article considers Delaware law leading up to QVC and Technicolor, tracing both the growing fragmentation of Delaware law in the 1980s and the growing judicial concern about fragmentation. This Article will argue that the concern over fragmentation and the desire for a unified standard were not the result of external pressures or policy concerns, but of internal judicial ...

The Power Of Presumptions, Randy E. Barnett Jan 1994

The Power Of Presumptions, Randy E. Barnett

Georgetown Law Faculty Publications and Other Works

Once you start to notice it, you see it everywhere. Burden-shifting is pervasive.The author began to notice the power of presumptions when examining how to protect the rights "retained by the people" referred to in the Ninth Amendment without having to enumerate each one. He proposed the creation of a "presumption of liberty" that would extend the same protective presumption now accorded freedom of speech to all other rightful exercises of liberty. This presumption would shift the burden to the government to justify as necessary and proper any restriction on the rightful exercise of any liberty.

Critical Rules In Negotiating Sales Contracts: The Lawyer's Job, James J. White Jan 1994

Critical Rules In Negotiating Sales Contracts: The Lawyer's Job, James J. White

Other Publications

In my experience, lawyers begin negotiating only after the business people have decided upon the description and quality of the product, the time of delivery, and the mode and amount of payment. The lawyers are left with the pathological problems--who gets what in case of trouble. Most of those problems relate to the seller's responsibility if the product does not conform to the contract or otherwise fails to please the buyer. These failures can cause economic loss to the buyer, economic loss to a remote purchaser, or personal injury or property damage to immediate or remote parties. Third parties ...

...And Contractual Consent, Randy E. Barnett Jan 1994

...And Contractual Consent, Randy E. Barnett

Georgetown Law Faculty Publications and Other Works

In Part I, the author contends that when economists persistently ignore the importance of contractual consent, they are missing the crucial problem of legitimacy. In Parts II and IV, he responds to the criticisms of his consent theory of contract advanced by Jay Feinman and Dennis Patterson. Both Feinman and Patterson object to the enterprise in which the author and others are engaging, and he explains why each is wrong to dismiss the current debate over default rules. Finally, in contrast, in Part III the author shows how Steven Burton's theory of default rules, which he finds most congenial ...
