Sanism, Social Science, And The Development Of Mental Disability Law Jurisprudence, Michael L. Perlin, D.A. Dorfman Jan 1993

Sanism, Social Science, And The Development Of Mental Disability Law Jurisprudence, Michael L. Perlin, D.A. Dorfman

Articles & Chapters

This article examines the way that "sanist" attitudes (attitudes driven by the same kind of irrational, unconscious and bias-driven stereotypes exhibited in racist and sexist decisionmaking) lead to "pretextual" decisions (in which dishonest testimony is either explicitly or implicitly accepted) in mental disability law jurisprudence. In conjunction with these sanist ends, social science data is teleologically employed by legal decisionmakers, so that it is privileged when it supports a conclusion that the fact-finder wishes to reach but subordinated when it questions such a conclusion. The article examines recent Supreme Court cases in an effort to determine the extent of domination …

He provides an overview of the status of the elderly in the United States and reminds the reader that the legal profession has not yet adequately addressed the needs of this segment of the population.

The United States Supreme Court And The Protection Of Refugees, Lung-Chu Chen Jan 1993

The United States Supreme Court And The Protection Of Refugees, Lung-Chu Chen

Articles & Chapters

The problem of refugees is a worldwide phenomenon. The

twentieth century has been called the century of refugees. Its

history is replete with mass displacements of peoples fleeing war,

political oppression, human rights deprivations or disasters of one

kind or another. Currently, there are about seventeen million refugees

around the world. The specter of masses of refugees huddled

at national boundaries seeking asylum is common to the experience

of many nations. The United States, being a nation of

immigrants and a land of opportunity, is certainly not immune

from such pressures, as most recently illustrated by the exodus of

Withholding Net Will Now Catch More Debt Arrangements, Alan Appel Jan 1993

Withholding Net Will Now Catch More Debt Arrangements, Alan Appel

Articles & Chapters

When the U.S. terminated its income tax treaty with the Netherlands Antilles in 1984, there was criticism from U.S. corporations that they were being unfairly kept out of the competitive Eurobond financing market. In order to provide access to the Eurobond market, Congress enacted Section 871(h) to provide an exemption (the “portfolio interest exemption”) from the 30% withholding tax on U.S.-source income earned by a nonresident alien individual or foreign corporation that is not effectively connected with the conduct of a U.S. trade or business. Portfolio interest, under Sections 871(h) and 163(f), is any U.S.-source interest (including original issue discount) …
