When federal agents raided 60 Wal-Mart stores and Wal-Mart's executive offices on October 23, 2003, an important issue was brought to the headlines: a company's obligation to verify the employment eligibility of independent contractors, and individuals employed by an independent contractor or a subcontractor, to perform services on behalf of the company.

Media Representations Of September 11, Steven Chermak, Frankie Bailey, Michelle Brown Sep 2003

Media Representations Of September 11, Steven Chermak, Frankie Bailey, Michelle Brown

Michelle Brown

Each contributor to this volume offers a fresh, engaging perspective on how the media transformed the 9/11 crisis into an ideological tour de force. The terrorist attacks on September 11th were unique and unprecedented in many ways, but the day will stand in our memories particularly because of our ability to watch the spectacle unfold. The blazing towers crumbling into dust, black smoke rising from the Pentagon, the unrecognizable remains of a fourth airplane in a quiet Pennsylvania field—these images, while disturbing and surreal, provide an important vehicle for interdisciplinary dialogue within media studies, showing us how horrific ...

Close-Out Netting & Set-Off Under U.S. Banking Insolvency Law, Christian Johnson Aug 2003

Close-Out Netting & Set-Off Under U.S. Banking Insolvency Law, Christian Johnson

Christian A. Johnson

The huge role of U.S. banks in the derivatives industry means counterparties must understand the treatment of close-out netting and set-off for an insolvent bank by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC). Close-out netting and set-off, both of which are typically provided under the ISDA Master Agreement, provide the most effective and efficient way to minimize credit risk with respect to the insolvency of a counterparty.

Kosovo Agonistes, John Murphy Jul 2003

Kosovo Agonistes, John Murphy

John F. Murphy

The debate over the legality and morality of NATO's actions with respect to Kosovo has been fierce, and writings on this subject have been legion. Although the primary focus of this chapter is on the legal dimensions of the Kosovo crisis, it also explores moral and political considerations. The chapter sets forth the following propositions and attempts to defend them: (1) the use of force by NATO in Kosovo could have been avoided; (2) assuming for the sake of argument that it could not, the use of force actually employed in Kosovo should have been different from that which ...

Payment Of Pre-Petition And Post-Petition Employee Severance Benefits, Daniel Austin Feb 2003

Payment Of Pre-Petition And Post-Petition Employee Severance Benefits, Daniel Austin

Daniel A. Austin

This article examines whether severance benefits promised to employees pre-petition may be paid after the employer has filed a chapter 11 bankruptcy petition. The answer depends on whether the severance benefits were payable based on length of service or in a single lump-sum payment, and whether the debtor is in a majority-or-minority-rule jurisdiction. For most debtors, pre-petition lump-sum severance benefits are not payable as an administrative expense. Severance benefits based on length of service must be allocated between pre- and post-petition service. This article does not deal with benefits provided under a collective bargaining agreement, which are governed under Section ...
