Re Canada Post Corp And Cupw (106-00-00003), Innis Christie Jul 2001

Re Canada Post Corp And Cupw (106-00-00003), Innis Christie

Innis Christie Collection

This is an award respecting preliminary objections raised by the Employer on matters of timeliness and an assertion that the Arbitrator had already dealt with this matter in two other decisions.

The grievance fails. The Employer's right to object on the basis of timeliness is waived because the Employer dealt with the grievance on its merits, and did not otherwise indicate an objection on timeliness until the eve of the hearing. The Employer's objection based on previous judgement is rejected because the matter in question is one of retained jurisdiction.


What's Law Got To Do With It: Mapping Modern Mediation Movements In Civil And Common Law Jurisdictions, Nadja Alexander Jul 2001

What's Law Got To Do With It: Mapping Modern Mediation Movements In Civil And Common Law Jurisdictions, Nadja Alexander

Research Collection Yong Pung How School Of Law

Context defines mediation and has a direct impact on how it is practised. National legal contexts reveal historically embedded systemic differences that can provide insights into the reasons behind the rapid expansion of mediation in common law jurisdictions, and the comparatively hesitant development of mediation in civil law jurisdictions. In this article I consider the legal and political forces behind the modern mediation movements in Australia and Germany: two countries that represent the common law and the civil law traditions respectively.

International Criminal Law After Rome: Concerns From A U.S. Military Perspective, William K. Lietzau Jan 2001

International Criminal Law After Rome: Concerns From A U.S. Military Perspective, William K. Lietzau

Law and Contemporary Problems

Lietzau argues that the US cannot support the International Criminal Court because it fails to recognize its unique responsibilities in the world when issues of international peace and security are involved. The changes sought by the US in the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court should be implemented not just because US participation is key to an effective, functioning court, but because enacting them promotes the rule of law and is therefore the right thing to do.


High Crimes And Misconceptions: The Icc And Non-Party States, Madeline Morris Jan 2001

High Crimes And Misconceptions: The Icc And Non-Party States, Madeline Morris

Law and Contemporary Problems

The dilemma underlying the debate about the International Criminal Court's jurisdiction over non-party nationals stems primarily from the conflicting needs for the ICC to have sufficient jurisdictional powers to bring to justice perpetrators of genocide, war crimes, and crimes against humanity, and simultaneously, for states to retain appropriate discretion regarding methods of dispute settlement when the lawfulness of their official acts is in dispute.


The International Criminal Court: Issues For Consideration By The United States Senate, Patricia Mcnerney Jan 2001

The International Criminal Court: Issues For Consideration By The United States Senate, Patricia Mcnerney

Law and Contemporary Problems

McNerney states that many in Congress who oppose the International Criminal Court are also some of the stronger advocates of the US speaking out against human rights abuses around the world. Rather than advocating the creation of an international criminal court that attempts to take decision making authority away from governments and invalidate the rule of law, however, they argue that more should be done to facilitate extradition of criminals to stand trial where they are accused.

International Law And The Problem Of Evil, A. Mark Weisburd Jan 2001

International Law And The Problem Of Evil, A. Mark Weisburd

Vanderbilt Journal of Transnational Law

In response to recent violations of human rights, some within the international legal community have called not only for intervention but for the establishment of an international court with jurisdiction to hear claims against persons alleged to have committed those violations. This Article questions the premise that it is necessary, or even desirable, for the international legal community to mandate intervention in such circumstances.

First, the Article examines the authority for international intervention to forestall massive human rights violations. Using the recent examples including Kosovo and East Timor, the Author compares scholarly responses with respect to both the human rights …


A Brave New Lochner Era? The Constitutionality Of Nafta Chapter 11, Steve Louthan Jan 2001

A Brave New Lochner Era? The Constitutionality Of Nafta Chapter 11, Steve Louthan

Vanderbilt Journal of Transnational Law

In the eight years since its adoption, NAFTA Chapter 11 has escaped significant scrutiny from academics and journalists alike. However, with the recent filing of several Chapter 11 expropriation claims involving U.S. states, Chapter 11 has begun to gain some notoriety in the press and sparked at least two legal symposia this past year.

This Note begins by highlighting the recent Methanex Chapter 11 claim involving the State of California. Methanex, a Canadian chemical manufacturer and importer, claimed $1.6 billion in damages over California's ban of the chemical MTBE. Despite the EPA'S classification of MTBE as a possible carcinogen and …

Toward U.S. Acceptance Of The International Criminal Court, Bruce Broomhall Jan 2001

Toward U.S. Acceptance Of The International Criminal Court, Bruce Broomhall

Law and Contemporary Problems

The US would be undermining its own interests by insisting on insulation of its personnel as the price for its toleration or support for the International Criminal Court. Broomhall argues that the US ought, in its own interest, to lay the foundations for eventually supporting the ICC, notwithstanding the potential (albeit remote) risk of investigation of its nationals.


The Icc’S Jurisdiction Over The Nationals Of Non-Party States: A Critique Of The U.S. Position, Michael P. Scharf Jan 2001

The Icc’S Jurisdiction Over The Nationals Of Non-Party States: A Critique Of The U.S. Position, Michael P. Scharf

Law and Contemporary Problems

Scharf analyzes the validity of the US argument against the International Criminal Court's jurisdiction over the national of non-party states in the context of historic precedent and the principles underlying international criminal jurisdiction, and demonstrates that it is not the jurisdiction of the ICC over the nationals of nonparty states, but the US government's legal argument, which rests on shaky foundations. He also highlights the potential unintended repercussions of the current US legal position.


Court Fixing, Tracey E. George Jan 2001

Court Fixing, Tracey E. George

Vanderbilt Law School Faculty Publications

This Article critically examines the existing social science evidence on the relative importance of various individual factors on judicial behavior and adds to that evidence by considering the influence of prior academic experience on judges. Researchers have not focused much attention on the importance of a judge's background as a full-time law professor and legal scholar, although more than thirteen percent of courts of appeals appointees were former law professors. Franklin Roosevelt and Ronald Reagan both viewed the federal judiciary (particularly the Supreme Court and the Courts of Appeals) as integral to their policy agendas, and both further believed that …

Intellectual Property, Electronic Commerce And The Preliminary Draft Hague Jurisdiction And Judgments Convention, Ronald A. Brand Jan 2001

Intellectual Property, Electronic Commerce And The Preliminary Draft Hague Jurisdiction And Judgments Convention, Ronald A. Brand

Articles

On October 30, 1999, a Special Commission of the Hague Conference on Private International Law adopted a Preliminary Draft Convention on Jurisdiction and Foreign Judgments in Civil and Commercial Matters ("Preliminary Draft Convention," or "PDC") which was further developed in June of 2001.Originally scheduled for a final diplomatic conference in the fall of 2000, the negotiating process was delayed as a result of serious questions raised about the draft language.

After a discussion of the history of the convention, this paper presents a review of the Preliminary Draft Convention text, describing its structure and scope. It then provides a focus …

Bringing The Camel Into The Tent: State And Federal Power Over Electricity Transmission , Cassandra Burke Robertson Jan 2001

Bringing The Camel Into The Tent: State And Federal Power Over Electricity Transmission , Cassandra Burke Robertson

Cleveland State Law Review

This paper provides a framework for understanding the current controversy regarding jurisdiction over the power grid, and provides policy-oriented solutions to ensure an adequate, low-cost transmission supply. The main thesis of this paper is that sound transmission policy requires greater federal power, and that Congress is better equipped than the courts to enact such policy. To this end, Part I of the paper offers an historical outline of the problem and analyzes the statutes and regulations that form the backbone of both the federal and state jurisdictional claims. Part II looks at legal considerations regarding the scope of federal jurisdiction. …


Federal Common Law, Cooperative Federalism, And The Enforcement Of The Telecom Act, Philip J. Weiser Jan 2001

Federal Common Law, Cooperative Federalism, And The Enforcement Of The Telecom Act, Philip J. Weiser

Publications

Congress increasingly has enacted cooperative federalism programs to achieve complex regulatory policy objectives. Such programs combine the authority of federal regulators, state regulators, and federal courts in creative and often pathmarking ways, but the failure of these actors to appreciate fully their respective roles threatens to undermine cooperative federalism's effectiveness. In this Article, Professor Philip Weiser develops a coherent vision of how federal courts should enforce cooperative federalism regulatory programs. In particular, he relates the rise and purpose of cooperative federalism to the federal courts' increased reluctance to make federal common law under the Erie doctrine and their greater deference …


Empowering United States Courts To Hear Crimes Within The Jurisdiction Of The International Criminal Court, Douglass Cassel Jan 2001

Empowering United States Courts To Hear Crimes Within The Jurisdiction Of The International Criminal Court, Douglass Cassel

Journal Articles

United States courts have only incomplete and uneven jurisdiction, most acquired piecemeal and only in recent years, to prosecute genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity committed outside our borders. Recent developments in international law and practice-especially the heightened commitment of democracies including the United States to end impunity for atrocities, and the imminent prospect of a permanent International Criminal Court (ICC) with worldwide jurisdiction-suggest the need to expand and rationalize the jurisdiction of U.S. courts to make it coextensive with that of the ICC.

It now appears all but certain that the ICC will come into being in the …


Bankruptcy Court Jurisdiction And Agency Action: Resolving The Nextwave Of Conflict, Rafael I. Pardo Jan 2001

Bankruptcy Court Jurisdiction And Agency Action: Resolving The Nextwave Of Conflict, Rafael I. Pardo

Scholarship@WashULaw

This Comment criticizes a pair of decisions by the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, FCC v. NextWave Personal Communications, Inc. (In re NextWave Personal Communications, Inc.) and In re FCC, which held that a bankruptcy court lacks jurisdiction to determine whether the Federal Communications Commission is stayed from revoking a debtor's licenses. The Comment argues that the Second Circuit interpreted the bankruptcy court's jurisdiction too narrowly because it failed to distinguish properly between an agency's action as a creditor and as a regulator. It concludes that bankruptcy courts and courts of appeals have concurrent jurisdiction to …


Antitrust And International Regulatory Federalism, Andrew T. Guzman Dec 2000

Antitrust And International Regulatory Federalism, Andrew T. Guzman

Andrew T Guzman

In this Essay, Andrew Guzman proposes internationalization of antitrust law to supplant current methods of antitrust regulation across national borders. Specifically, instead of relying on local regulation, bilateral agreements between states, or a choice-of-law rule for antitrust enforcement, countries should adopt universal substantive standards. Moreover, Guzman recommends the World Trade Organization (WTO), which already employs a dispute resolution mechanism, as the governing forum for international antitrust issues. There, states can negotiate transfer payments in one international transaction to achieve agreement in another. Upon evaluating Professor Eleanor Fox’s proposal of a stand-alone World Competition Forum that would specialize exclusively in international …
