Injunctive Law Enforcement: Leaven Or Secret Weapon, Frank E. Maloney Dec 1949

Injunctive Law Enforcement: Leaven Or Secret Weapon, Frank E. Maloney

Mercer Law Review

The historical development of English law resulted in the division of the law into three main branches: common law, equity, and criminal law. The common law as administered by the king's court developed into a rigid system of formal actions, with relief by way of money damages as the one remedy in personal actions. This development, together with the growth of highly technical rules of pleading, left many situations in which no adequate relief was available in those courts; and the resulting inflexibility of the system led to the growth of equity, under which the king's prerogative might be exercised …

Coming Into Equity With Clean Hands, Zechariah Chafee, Jr. May 1949

Coming Into Equity With Clean Hands, Zechariah Chafee, Jr.

Michigan Law Review

The most amusing maxim of equity is "He who comes into Equity must come with clean hands." It has given rise ,to many interesting cases and poor jokes. The maxim has been regarded as an especially significant manifestation of the ethical attitude of equity as contrasted with the common law. Pomeroy, for instance, argues that the principle involved in this maxim is "merely the expression of one of the elementary and fundamental conceptions of equity jurisprudence." Pomeroy's theory is that chancery has power to force a defendant to comply with the dictates of conscience as to matters outside the strict …

Res Judicata-Use Defensively Of Former Judgment By One Not A Party Or In Privity With A Party To Former Action, Richard H. Conn

Michigan Law Review

Plaintiff sued defendant in a federal district court to foreclose a mortgage lien alleged to exist on defendant's land in consequence of a loan by plaintiff to defendant's predecessor in title. Defendant's land was but a part of the tract originally encumbered. In a prior action in the state court, plaintiff had sought foreclosure of the same mortgage against the holder of another parcel of the mortgaged land on the precise grounds now asserted against defendant. In that action it was held that the entire mortgage had already been discharged. Defendant moved for summary judgment, contending that the former decision …

Founding Fathers And The Natural Law: A Study Of The Source Of Our Legal Institutions, The, Clarence Emmett Manion

Journal Articles

Where did the Founding Fathers get the principles upon which they established our government? What was the source of their faith? The bedrock of their convictions? What was the political evolution of our Constitution? The legal philosophy of our Bill of Rights? The discussion of these questions by Dean Manion is timely for it is necessary now to make soundings and take bearings if the Ship of State is to continue on its true course. Whereas the Revolution of 1688 brought the doctrine of parliamentary sovereignty to England, the American colonists resisted that doctrine and adhered to the true natural …
