Taking It To The Bank: The Need For A Federal Legislative Safe Harbor For Financial Institutions Offering Services To State-Legal Marijuana-Related Businesses, Andrew Bloomfield 2022 St. John's University School of Law

Taking It To The Bank: The Need For A Federal Legislative Safe Harbor For Financial Institutions Offering Services To State-Legal Marijuana-Related Businesses, Andrew Bloomfield

Journal of Civil Rights and Economic Development

(Excerpt)

Imagine that you are a small business owner. Rather than opening a new coffee shop, craft brewery, or chic clothing store, you decide to enter one of the fastest-growing industries in the country: marijuana (also referred to herein as “cannabis”). Your state, Washington, has recently legalized recreational use of marijuana, and your new marijuana-related business (MRB), Plantworks, has joined thousands of other licensed producers to supply the new growing market.

You and your business partner lease 2,500 square feet of industrial workspace in Seattle’s North End and produce several pounds of high-quality “craft” cannabis for distribution to ...

State Spoliation Claims In Federal District Courts, Jeffrey A. Parness 2022 Northern Illinois University College of Law

State Spoliation Claims In Federal District Courts, Jeffrey A. Parness

Catholic University Law Review

The increasing amounts of electronically stored information (ESI) relevant to civil litigation, and the ease of their loss, caused federal lawmakers explicitly to address the possible consequences of certain pre-suit or post-suit ESI losses. These lawmakers acted in both 2006 and 2015 through Federal Civil Procedure (FRCP) 37(e). But they acted only on certain ESI. Their actions have prompted increasing attention to the significant risks of pre-suit and post-suit losses of all ESI, and of non-ESI, otherwise discoverable in civil actions. In addition, their actions have spurred increasing attention to the availability of substantive law claims involving spoliation of ...

Restitution Of Mistakenly Transferred Bitcoins, Alvin W. L. SEE, Man YIP 2022 Singapore Management University

Restitution Of Mistakenly Transferred Bitcoins, Alvin W. L. See, Man Yip

Research Collection School Of Law

The first Malaysian judgment of precedential value relating to the recovery of mistakenly transferred cryptocurrency, Robert Ong Thien Cheng v LUNO Pte Ltd and BitX Malaysia Sdn Bhd, is uncharacteristically short but raises important issues in the law of unjust enrichment. Even within the Commonwealth, this is the fi rst reported case involving an unjust enrichment claim to recover mistakenly transferred cryptoassets.

Recognition And Enforcement Of Foreign Judgments In American Courts And The Limits Of The Law Market Model, Michael E. Solimine 2022 University of Cincinnati College of Law

Recognition And Enforcement Of Foreign Judgments In American Courts And The Limits Of The Law Market Model, Michael E. Solimine

Faculty Articles and Other Publications

The law market model posits that the most appropriate resolution of choice of law disputes in private international law is to permit individuals to choose ex ante the law that applies to them. This is contrasted to the public law model where courts choose law based on the perceived interests of, or the parties’ connections with, the states or nations involved. The law market model envisions that consumer choice will lead to a healthy competition among jurisdictions to supply the most efficient law. This model has been followed in several areas, most notably in the widespread enforcement, at least within ...


How Can Federal Actors Compete On Noncompetes? Examining The Need For And Possibility Of Federal Action On Noncompetition Agreements, Robert McAvoy 2022 Penn State Dickinson Law

How Can Federal Actors Compete On Noncompetes? Examining The Need For And Possibility Of Federal Action On Noncompetition Agreements, Robert Mcavoy

Dickinson Law Review

Employees have been frustrated by the restrictiveness of noncompete agreements and confused about their enforceability for decades. The added complication of choice-of-law provisions in employment contracts with noncompetes creates a sea of unpredictability for both employees and employers.

Each state applies its own policy to noncompete agreements. While every state treats noncompetes differently than typical contract provisions, a broad spectrum exists between the states that are friendly and those that are hostile to the enforcement of noncompetes. Employees and employers often fail to understand whether their noncompete is enforceable under the jurisdiction chosen by the contract, and courts override choice-of-law ...


Interest-Based Incorporation: Statutory Realism Exploring Federalism, Delegation, And Democratic Design, Sheldon Evans 2022 St. John's University School of Law

Interest-Based Incorporation: Statutory Realism Exploring Federalism, Delegation, And Democratic Design, Sheldon Evans

Faculty Publications

Statutory interpretation is a unique legal field that appreciates fiction as much as fact. For years, judges and scholars have acknowledged that canons of interpretation are often based on erudite assumptions of how Congress drafts federal statutes. But a recent surge in legal realism has shown just how erroneous many of these assumptions are. Scholars have created a robust study of congressional practices that challenge many formalist canons of interpretation that are divorced from how Congress thinks about, drafts, and enacts federal statutes. This conversation, however, has yet to confront statutory incorporation, which describes when Congress incorporates state law into ...


But We Didn’T Agree To That!: Why Class Proceedings Should Not Be Implied From Silent Or Ambiguous Arbitration Clauses After Lamps Plus, Inc. V. Varela, Andrea DeMelo Laprade 2021 Catholic University of America (Student)

But We Didn’T Agree To That!: Why Class Proceedings Should Not Be Implied From Silent Or Ambiguous Arbitration Clauses After Lamps Plus, Inc. V. Varela, Andrea Demelo Laprade

Catholic University Law Review

The application of class arbitrability when a contract is silent on the matter remains a mystery. The Supreme Court has not clarified its stance on class arbitrability and preemptive effects of the Federal Arbitration Act on state law when applied to determine if class arbitrability is available. The purpose of this Paper is to address how the Lamps Plus v. Varela decision created more confusion about the question of class arbitrability. It argues that the failure to address the particulars of the availability of class arbitration will perpetuate litigation on this issue. This Paper suggests that the FAA’s purpose ...


Hong Kong’S Extradition Bill: Implications & Ramifications, Grace Wang 2021 Brooklyn Law School

Hong Kong’S Extradition Bill: Implications & Ramifications, Grace Wang

Brooklyn Journal of International Law

Since June 2019, millions of people in Hong Kong protested against the proposed extradition bill, which would permit the HKSAR government to extradite anyone residing, visiting, or passing through Hong Kong to mainland China with which it has no formal extradition agreement with. This Note will argue that the proposed extradition bill not only created a legal loophole in the existing system by removing legislative scrutiny and judicial oversight, but also violated international human rights law in light of mainland China’s record of serious human rights violation. Instead, the HKSAR and PRC governments should cooperate to create an impartial ...


Reconceptualising Fiduciary Regulation In Actual Conflicts, Man YIP, Kelvin LOW 2021 Singapore Management University

Reconceptualising Fiduciary Regulation In Actual Conflicts, Man Yip, Kelvin Low

Research Collection School Of Law

Tis article reviews the fiduciary duty to avoid actual conflicts. It argues that the duty to avoid actual conflicts adds limited substantive value to fiduciary accountability. Its present form has also contributed to widespread misconception of what should be expected of an unfortunate fiduciary who finds themselves in such a position. In this respect, we propose that many of the modern scenarios involving actual conflicts of duties or conflicts of duties and interests are better analysed not in terms of conflict avoidance but in terms of conflict management. Our analysis paves the way for thoughtfully working out what the fiduciaries ...

Problems Of Conflict Of Laws On The Issue Of Inheritance Between Those Of Different Religions Under The Algerian Law: Analytical Study, M’hamedi Bouzina Amina 2021 Lecturer, Department of Law and Political Science, Hassiba Ben Bouali-Chlef University; Law and Human Security Lab- Algeria

Problems Of Conflict Of Laws On The Issue Of Inheritance Between Those Of Different Religions Under The Algerian Law: Analytical Study, M’Hamedi Bouzina Amina

Journal Sharia and Law

What is established in Islamic law is the non-permissibility of inheritance between the Muslim and non-Muslim, which is also the case in the Arab laws, including the laws of countries that define the sectarian diversity of personal status; as in Egyptian law through Article VI of Law No. 77 of 1943 On the inheritance of non-succession between the Muslim and non-Muslim, which was followed by the Lebanese law of June 23, 1959, but if we return to the Algerian law, we find that he did not establish a base of attribution on this issue, and in the absence of a ...
