The Liability Of A Principal For The Penal Or Criminal Acts Of His Agent, Floyd R. Meechem Dec 1912

The Liability Of A Principal For The Penal Or Criminal Acts Of His Agent, Floyd R. Meechem

Michigan Law Review

What Here Involved. In a previous article the question of the liability of a principal or master for the wilful or malicious acts of his servant or agent, was considered. It is proposed here to consider the liability of a principal or master for the penal or criminal acts of his agent or servant. This will involve two aspects: (a) The civil liability of the principal or master, and (b) His penal or criminal liability.


What Is The Law? Ii, Joseph W. Bingham Dec 1912

What Is The Law? Ii, Joseph W. Bingham

Michigan Law Review

I shall now discuss briefly the nature of the causal effects of precedents upon judicial decisions and the justifications for those effects. One frequently hears laymen scoffing at the respect which courts pay to precedents and sometimes displaying a lamentable ignorance both of the nature of the influence which precedents have on the law and of the reasons for the existence of that influence. The influence of past example on human action pervades all human conduct and endeavor at all times. That influence is fundamental. It occurs through instinctive as well as intelligent processes and sometimes runs to unreasonable extents. …

Bank Deposits And Collections, Ralph J. Baker Dec 1912

Bank Deposits And Collections, Ralph J. Baker

Michigan Law Review

Insolvency, no less than natural death, is a tragedy which comes into the midst of business transactions, fixing the claims of parties, and calling for the application of legal principles to determine the nature and extent of their rights. Perhaps no business relationship is more frequent than that of banker and customer or depositor. And while insolvency of banking institutions is happily less frequent than in the ordinary business, it is not so uncommon that questions therein are not often in the courts for adjudication. It would, therefore, be a natural deduction that the legal principles applicable should be comparatively …

What Is The Law?, Joseph W. Bingham Nov 1912

What Is The Law?, Joseph W. Bingham

Michigan Law Review

It is intended that this title shall demand an analysis of the field of study in which the lawyer or jurist works and a determination of its essential and contributing elements. The purpose of the article is to sketch briefly a partial answer which will be instructive and helpful to the student who faces the problem as I faced it some ten years ago. I do not expect that anything new will be found in these ideas. I imagine that all of them must have been expressed many times before. Some of them are common­place. None is esoteric. Probably the …


Judicial Criticism Of Legislation By Courts, Charles G. Haines Nov 1912

Judicial Criticism Of Legislation By Courts, Charles G. Haines

Michigan Law Review

In the application of the doctrine of judicial review of legislative acts, the federal courts of the United States have not infrequently been criticised for usurping part of the functions of the legislature. The criticisms have increased to such an extent as to raise an issue of national significance. Recently, charges against the judiciary for the usurpation of legislative functions have been made rather frequently by the justices of our federal Supreme Comt. The late Associate Justice Harlan, dissenting in part from the reasoning of the majority of the court in the Standard Oil case, brought such a criticism against …


The Need Of A Scientific Study Of Crime, Crimninal Law, And Procedure--The American Institute Of Criminal Law And Criminology, Eugene A. Gilmore Nov 1912

The Need Of A Scientific Study Of Crime, Crimninal Law, And Procedure--The American Institute Of Criminal Law And Criminology, Eugene A. Gilmore

Michigan Law Review

The multiplying instances of the delay or seeming miscarriage of justice, together with the indications that crime is not diminishing in this country, as it is in most progressive European countries, are responsible for the widespread feeling that American Criminal Law and Administration are ineffective as a corrective system, and thus fail adequately to protect society; that as President Taft puts it, "The administration of criminal law in this country is a disgrace to our civilization." Defective organization of courts, cumbrous and costly procedure and excessive emphasis on technicalities afford an undue advantage to the law-breaker of means and deepen …

Some Unscheduled Liabilities Of Trust Companies, Henry M. Bates Sep 1912

Some Unscheduled Liabilities Of Trust Companies, Henry M. Bates

Articles

"The modern trust company, with its varied and highly developed functions, is a characteristic product of our present complex civilization... The trust company, as some one has said, has become the corporation's corporation, a sort of super-corporation.... The question then naturally arises, is there any law peculiar to trust companies?"
