Extraterritorial Power In Georgia Municipal Law, R. Perry Sentell Jr. Sep 1977

Extraterritorial Power In Georgia Municipal Law, R. Perry Sentell Jr.

Scholarly Works

The image of municipal power carries with it the accompanying concept of limitations on that power. One of the seemingly most natural of such limitations is that pertaining to territory. If a municipality is an incorporated entity, composed of precisely described physical boundaries, then its operational existence would normally be presumed to take place within those boundaries. The municipality's power to function outside its limits would thus appear not only unnecessary but foreign to the corporate conception. The problem with such neatness, of course, is its unworldliness. The truism is that neither man nor municipality is an island and that …

1977 Letter Of Reasonable Assurance, East Tennessee State University

Establishment of James H. Quillen College of Medicine

Following the passage of the Teague-Cranston Act and Tennessee state legislation, with the Plan for Medical Education in place, the next step was qualifying for federal funds. With the help of U.S. Representative Jimmy Quillen and the State Board of Regents Chancellor Roy Nicks, the application for funds was approved by the Veterans Administration on July 11, 1974. However, it was not until Dr. Culp's last day in office as President of ETSU, that the Liason Committee on Medical Education issued a letter of reasonable assurance that the new medical school would be accredited.

Evaluating Article 2 Of The Uniform Commercial Code: A Preliminary Empirical Expedition, James J. White May 1977

Evaluating Article 2 Of The Uniform Commercial Code: A Preliminary Empirical Expedition, James J. White

Articles

A proponent of commercial law codification, Mr. Eaton was one of the first American lawyers to perceive that mere codification of the law did not necessarily produce certainty and lack of discord in the law of commercial transactions. Indeed, in the same article Eaton reveals that of the 1,091 cases that had arisen under the Negotiable Instruments Law, only 704 cited the Act and in the other 387 "the Negotiable Instruments Law [was] ignored by the courts in the decisions, and (so far as the reports show) by the counsel in these cases...." Unlike Bentham, Carter, and Field, each of …

Evidence Problems In Criminal Cases, John W. Reed Jan 1977

Evidence Problems In Criminal Cases, John W. Reed

Book Chapters

The Federal Rules of Evidence, enacted by Congress, became effective on July 1, 1975. Ten states have adopted state versions of the Federal Rules to govern trials in their courts, and about half the remaining states are considering whether to follow suit. Michigan is one of these latter states. Early in 1977 a committee appointed by the Supreme Court of Michigan proposed rules of evidence for Michigan closely patterned on the Federal Rules, and, if all goes well, the Court will promulgate rules for the Michigan courts to become effective in 1977 or soon thereafter. Michigan lawyers should be aware …


The Minnesota Recreational Use Statute: A Preliminary Analysis, Donald H. Gjerdingen Jan 1977

The Minnesota Recreational Use Statute: A Preliminary Analysis, Donald H. Gjerdingen

Articles by Maurer Faculty

In the past twenty-four years, Minnesota and forty-two other states in an effort to ease the growing burden on public parks and campgrounds have enacted recreational use statutes to encourage private landowners to open their land to the public for recreational use. As incentive, the statutes offer the landowners a limited form of tort immunity if they gratuitously allow entry for recreational use. Despite their simplicity, the possible ramifications of the statutes in the area of premises liability law are far-reaching. This Note analyzes the Minnesota recreational use statute and suggests a theoretical framework for its interpretation.

Child, Parent, State And The Due Process Clause: An Essay On The Supreme Court’S Recent Work, John H. Garvey Jan 1977

Child, Parent, State And The Due Process Clause: An Essay On The Supreme Court’S Recent Work, John H. Garvey

Scholarly Articles

This Article will suggest that the right of autonomy, which limits state control over children, should be considered to reside not in the child alone, but in the family, just as the right against state interference with the family structure resides in the family. The shift in focus from children's rights to family rights implicitly accounts for the mental, physical, and emotional differences between children and adults. Moreover, protecting a family's right of autonomy insures that decisions on behalf of the child will be made by those presumptively best able to make such decisions, the parents.
