Prof. John C. Coffee was mentioned in an article entitled,
The Private World of Public Offerings. The article takes a look
at the world of large investment bank IPO allotment practices, and possible
violation of federal disclosure laws. The federal government is probing into
whether investment banks require some IPO investors to pay unusual
large commission on other stock trades in order to get the IPO shares,
and whether those payments constitute kickbacks. Prof. Coffee states that
although this is extraordinarily hard to prove, thats where the U.S. attorneys
office - and the grand jury - comes in. You can count on one thing, that
rightly or wrongly, when U.S. attorneys subpoena in a case, they indict what
they investigate. The Industry Standard, May 14, 2001.
We have learned that the U.S. was recently not re-elected into the United Nations
Human Rights Commission. However, Prof. L. Henkin, a member
serving the body of the U.S. Human Rights Committee, is still currently active
in his participation, monitoring compliance on the International Covenant on
Civil and Political Rights. Prof. Henkin, along with 17 other (unpaid) independent
experts are elected by the states party to the Covenant. Although
the Human Rights Committee Prof. Henkin serves is not of the United Nations
body, the United Nations still affords them services and facilities.

SEC Investigating Claims Raytheon Hid Cost Overruns. Raytheon
Co. is being investigated by the Securities and Exchange Commission amid allegations
that it hid cost overruns at a construction unit sold to Washington Group International
Inc. last year. Washington Group filed a lawsuit in March to cancel the sale
and has said it may seek bankruptcy protection because of higher-than-expected
expenses on some projects. Prof. Goldschmid states, Its somewhat
unusual for the SEC to act in what appears to be a private dispute, but if there
are significant accounting or public issues involved, an investigation is certainly
legitimate. The Los Angeles Times, May 4, 2001.
Prof. Mark Barenberg was mentioned in an article entitled,
No to Global Sweatshops; Brief Article. New Yorks City Council
is about to open a promising new front in the global struggle against sweatshop
exploitation, a city procurement ordinance that requires decent wages and factory
conditions for those that make uniforms for police, firefighters, sanitation,
park and other employees. The new ordinance was drafted and promoted by UNITE
(Union of Needletrades, Industrial and Textile Employees). Prof. Barenberg,
the chairman of the governing board of the Worker Rights Consortium, believes
UNITES draft legislation is immune to any accusation the New York City
is poaching on federal territory, either the regulation of interstate commerce
or the executive branchs exclusive domain of foreign relations.

was mentioned in a Student Briefing on the News. With the upcoming

Prof. Gerald Newman was mentioned and quoted in an article
entitled, Did Congress Go Too Far? The article focuses on a case
of different deportation proceedings that are being argued in front of the Supreme
Court after legal resident aliens who plead guilty to crimes are fighting deportation
against the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS). The court will
decide whether Congress went too far in 1996 when they stripped the federal
courts of their authority to hear claims of lawful resident aliens convicted
of so-called aggravated felonies. While the stakes are high for convicted resident
aliens, the cases are fundamentally about the role of the federal courts and
the reach of the Great Writ of habeas corpus. Professor Newman refers
to the present litigation to similar litigations that took place in two other
historical periods. In both periods, the Supreme Court acted to protect
the writ of habeas corpus, and the government is asking the court to do things
now that the court was unwilling to do in those earlier periods. The

Liability, takes a look at how the Los Angeles Police Department can

individuals say their rights were violated by Rampart Division officers, marks
the second time in seven months that a federal judge has rebuffed efforts
by the citys attorneys office to dismiss Rampart-related claims
filed under the RICO (Racketeer Influence and Corrupt Organizations)Act.
Professor Coffee noted, that to win monetary awards under RICO, the
plaintiffs will have to show that they have been injured in their business

force in which damages can be awarded for brutality or mental distress.

written by the late Margaret Mitchell. Representatives of Ms. Mitchell, The

2001. The Bush administration has insisted that the Chinese have no right to
hold or even inspect the Navys EP-3E surveillance aircraft if the collision
between the two planes occurred where the Pentagon has indicated. China claims
that the collision occurred within their countrys boundary. Prof. Damrosch
states that the islands sited by China as part of its boundary amounted

how the New York State Bar Association called "for a moratorium on capital
punishment until concerns about the conviction of innocent people and racial

These errors were considered serious enough to reverse either the conviction
or the sentenced appointed. The New York Times, April 1, 2001.

that, one of the clearest principles of American constitutional law is
that race is an inappropriate basis upon which to make official decisions.

Discussion Of Pardon, Milken Comeback Is Doubtful. President Clinton has
been considering granting an 11th-hour pardon to Mr. Michael R. Milken, who
served almost two years in prison after pleading guilty to six felony counts
of securities fraud in 1990. A pardon would suggest that Mr. Milken has atoned
for his crimes through his philanthropy, but he would still be bound by a court
order that bars him from securities industry for life. A presidential
pardon doesnt rescind any injunction, said Prof. Coffee. Its
more about writing history over again. Once you grant the pardon, I think that
would help his apologists to try to rewrite history and see conviction as not

that is part of a settlement is not legally admissible as evidence in other

Prof. Richard Briffault was quoted in an article entitled
Focus on School Adequacy Is Now Key To Aid Cases. In seeking more
aid for education, local school districts have for 30 years turned to the courts
using a variety of arguments. In recent years such lawsuits have focused increasingly
on issues of educational adequacy rather than outright equality, and they have
met with more success. State courts have ruled that allowing public education
to fall below some floor of what constitutes an adequate education may be violating
the states own constitutions, which virtually all call for them to deliver
a basic education. That was the case this week, when Justice Leland DeGrasse
of State Supreme Court in Manhattan in a decision called for a wholesale revamping
of the formulas that the state uses to allocate education money. Prof. Briffault
said, The court is not saying that the state engaged in international
discrimination, but that its process tends to shortchange New York City students,
who are overwhelmingly minority, and for no good reason. The New
