Imposter Rule

...Impostor Rule/Fictitious Payee The Impostor Rule is a rule stating that if an impostor endorses a negotiable instrument and receives payment in “good faith”, the drawer of the instrument is responsible for the loss. An example would be if an individual impersonates a person for whom a check has been cut or misrepresents himself as that person's agent. If the impostor receives the check, endorses it, and cashes it at the drawer's bank, the drawer is responsible for the loss, because the bank accepted the endorsement in good faith. The bank may be responsible for a percentage of the loss if it failed to exercise "ordinary care"; for example, if the bank did not check the impostor's identification. The imposter rule is based on the assumption that between the bank and the drawer, the drawer is in a better position to prevent the loss. The Fictitious Payee Rule is a principle of commercial law that if a drawer or maker issues commercial paper to a payee whom the drawer or maker does not actually intend to have any interest in the instrument, an ensuing forgery of the payee's name will be effective to pass good title to later transferees. Ordinarily, the drawer of a check is not liable on a forged endorsement. The "fictitious payee" rule is an exception to this principle, as it allocates the loss to the drawer if a person signing as or on behalf of a drawer intends the payee to have no interest in the instrument. The policy behind the fictitious payee rule is that it seeks......

Rule of Perputities

...Question: What is the Common Law Rule of Perpetuities? Answer: It’s a property rule that pertains to common law and it states that no interest in land is good unless it is vested within 21 years after the creation of the interest. Question: How did the rule come about? Answer: John Robert Gray made the rule back in the early 1900’s(around the 1930’s from what I could find)which was meant to be a rule against the remoteness of vesting by insisting on the appropriate use of techniques which was meant save gifts from invalidity and regulates the devolution of wealth from generation to generation but over the years the rule has been reworded, twisted and in some cases completely abolished depending on the state. Question: How does the rule apply today? and Does it still apply in the state of Colorado? Answer: the rule against perpetuities has been modified by laws passed by the government in many jurisdictions such that it takes a "wait and see" approach. For Example: that means they would just wait till you die and then the property would revert to the estate of the person who gave it to you. As for does it still apply in Colorado? The state of Colorado as well as 29 other states(Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Indiana, Kansas, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oregon, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia, Washington and West......

Exclusionary Rule

...What is the Exclusionary Rule and what is an example? What are the expectations of the rule? How does the Exclusionary Rule apply to criminal procedure? Compare and contrast the criteria (including rationale) on which the Exclusionary Rule was based.  Should the rule be abolished?  Are there better alternative remedies to the rule and if so, what are they? The exclusionary rule essentially excludes evidence illegally obtained or in evidence obtained in violation of the Fourth Amendment (Lippman, 2011, p. 423). While the exclusionary rule is reactionary in nature and is used as a last resort relative to evidentiary admissibility, certain principles have been established that restrict or constrain it (p. 423). For example, claimants must be able to show their Fourth Amendment rights have been violated. While the exclusionary principle was developed in order to delimit unlawful or excessive police action, self-appointed citizens acting as police without authority to do so, etc., the exclusionary principle is not always applicable (Ferdico, Fradella, & Totten, 2013, p. 89). For example, evidence obtained by police acting in good faith, upon the belief that the search was legal might be included (p. 431). In fact, Lippman (2011) contends that attenuation and collateral proceedings such as preliminary hearings, may also inform the admissibility of evidence (Lippman, 2011, p. 414, 431). For understandable reasons then, numerous cases raising questions about Fourth Amendment......

Volcker Rule

...Memorandum The Volcker Rule Introduction The regulation of financial institutions has long been a controversial subject in the United States of America, going through cycles of increasing or decreasing rigorousness. Following the Stock Market Crash of 1929 and the Great Depression, the US Congress enacted several laws designed to regulate financial institutions. One of these laws, the Banking Act of 1933, included four provisions limiting the ability of deposit-taking institutions to trade for their own benefit. These provisions are colloquially referred to as the Glass-Steagall Act. GlassSteagall forbade commercial banks from dealing, underwriting and investing in most securities. By the late 1990s, the resolve to enforce Glass-Steagall faded, shown particularly by the Fed’s blessing of the Citicorp/Travelers Group merger. In 1999, President Clinton signed the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act into law, effectively repealing the Glass-Steagall Act. Echoing the political landscape following the Great Depression, the aftermath of the Great Recession saw a resurgence in grassroots campaigns to reinstitute tougher regulations on banks and financial institutions. The bailouts given to many large banks fueled this public outrage, especially in the light of the million Americans losing their homes to foreclosure. A recently inaugurated Obama administration sought to prevent a reoccurrence of the financial crisis by tightening government regulation of financial institutions. This eventually......

Postal Rule

...the parties. The rules on offer and acceptance are usually used to pinpoint when a series of negotiations has passed that point, in order to decide whether the parties are obliged to fulfil their promises. An offer is intimation, by words or conduct, of a willingness to enter into a legally binding contract. An acceptance of an offer means unconditional agreement to all the terms of that offer. It will often be in oral or in writing, but in some cases an offeree may accept an offer by conduct, as illustrated in Brogden v Metropolitan Railway. An acceptance does not usually take effect until it is communicated to the offeror. In other words, mental assent is not enough. This was decided in Entores v Miles Far East Corporation. Where parties negotiate face-to-face, communication of the acceptance is unlikely to be a problem. However, difficulties tend to arise where the parties are communicating at a distance. The main reason for the postal rule is historical, since it dates from a time when communication through the post was even slower and less reliable than it is today. It was developed before instantaneous methods of communication such as telephone, fax, emails and text messages came about. Therefore, there is an argument that the postal rule of acceptance no longer serves a useful purpose in the world of modern business communications. Nevertheless, the principle stands. Thus, when dealing with letters or telegrams, the rule still applies. The general rule for the......

Should Pope Benedict Xvi Have Resigned

...Should Pope Benedict XVI have resigned? For the first time in over 600 years, the Pope has stepped down from his holy position and abandoned his role in the Roman Catholic Church. In history, only four other Popes have resigned. Every Pope for the past 600 years has lived through their issues, personal matters, and problems to serve the Roman Catholic community and has died in their position. The Pope of the Roman Catholic Church, which values tradition, should have kept with the tradition of dying in his seat of holy power. However, in his resignation statement, Benedict states; “In today’s world … both strength of mind and body are necessary, strength which in the last few months, has deteriorated in me to the extent that I have had to recognize my incapacity to adequately fulfill the ministry entrusted to me.” The Pope argues that, with his deteriorating strength, he can no longer carry out the responsibilities of the papacy. It is also true that Pope Benedict XVI is leaving the church in a more troubled state than when he first received the grand position. For years, controversy has plagued Catholicism. The controversy has only intensified since his coronation. The Pope no longer signifies true morality, especially after sex scandal controversies appeared in recent years . An increase in religious disregard and apathy has brought a societal shift in perspective of the church. The position of The Pope, and the church in general, promotes backwards moral values from a...

The Rule of Benedict

...Benedict: The Rule Context The Christian church has taken on a new social structure as a result of the peace of Constantine. The persecution has ceased and the church has become powerful as acceptance is found for the Christian. The church now becomes open to the influence of riches and comfortable living, and the theology of the church conforms taking on a structure like that of the imperial empire. Aristocracy and privilege is accepted within the church, which leads to lack of discipline. This opens the door to division and scrutiny within the church and its believers. The monastic movement comes as a result from this scrutiny. There are those who believe that that the current security and life of comfort are enemies of the church. They leave for the desert where they seek out a way of asceticism. Paul and Anthony were both monks who sought this life in the Egyptian desert, seeking solitude and a place away from the temptations and chaos. Two generations later Benedict, who was born to Roman aristocracy in the small town of Nursia in 480 A. D., is influenced by this same struggle and seeks to live in solitude. At the age of 20 he leaves the city and lives as a hermit for three years in a cave developing a following of people seeking the same discipline and structure. He builds a monastery in Monte Cassino, where they can practice asceticism. Benedict’s rule is his structured framework for the monastic society. His rule proved to not be as harsh as the monks in......
