The Case Beyond Time, Lyman P.Q. Johnson, David K. Millon Jan 1990

The Case Beyond Time, Lyman P.Q. Johnson, David K. Millon

Scholarly Articles

The Delaware Supreme Court's opinion in Paramount Communications, Inc. v. Time, Inc.' treats several important questions that arise in connection with hostile corporate takeovers. At the same time, it leaves three critical issues unanswered. In this article, we first briefly describe what the Time decision did, comparing Chancellor William Allen's somewhat discursive Chancery Court opinion with the more peremptory ruling of the Supreme Court. Next, we identify three unarticulated but potentially far-reaching implications of both the Supreme Court's and Chancellor Allen's reasoning that threaten to destabilize seemingly settled doctrine governing the conduct of target company management.


Defining The Scope Of Broker And Dealer Duties -- Some Problems In Adjudicating The Responsibilities Of Securities And Commodities Professionals, Gregory A. Hicks Jan 1990

Defining The Scope Of Broker And Dealer Duties -- Some Problems In Adjudicating The Responsibilities Of Securities And Commodities Professionals, Gregory A. Hicks

Articles

The purpose of this Article is to stress the need for grounding broker-dealer duties in sound, articulated understandings of the investment markets, as well as defensible statements of the responsibilities and expectations of both customers and market professionals. This important need will be demonstrated through the use of several cases illustrating problematical or failed processes by which broker-dealer duties have been established.

This Article will focus primarily on two recent decisions, In re E.F. Hutton & Co., and Wasnick v. Refco, Inc., both of which have been criticized for inappropriately expanding broker and dealer duties. Each decision is …

The International Reach Of Rule 10b-5: The Myth Of Congressional Silence, Margaret V. Sachs Jan 1990

The International Reach Of Rule 10b-5: The Myth Of Congressional Silence, Margaret V. Sachs

Scholarly Works

This article challenges the conventional wisdom that in adjudicating the international reach of rule 10b-5 courts begin with a blank legislative slate. The history of the securities laws demonstrates that this conventional wisdom is erroneous in two important respects. First, the securities markets of the 1920's were highly international, as Congress was well aware when it enacted the 1933 and 1934 Acts. Second, Congress nevertheless chose to protect only those investors whose trades occur inside the United States-“domestic traders” -- regardless of whether the securities traded are domestic or foreign. As a result, foreign traders lack standing to sue under …
