The Causal Mechanisms of Horizontal Shareholding

Although empirical studies show that common shareholding affects corporate conduct and that common horizontal shareholding lessens competition, critics have argued that the law should not take any action until we have clearer proof on the causal mechanisms. I show that we in fact have ample proof on causal mechanisms, and that anyway antitrust enforcement should focus on anticompetitive market structures, rather than on causal mechanisms...

Genetic Paparazzi: Beyond Genetic Privacy

The domain of accessible information about celebrities, political leaders, and other public figures is expanding as technology evolves, placing new stresses on already uneasy legal boundaries around their privacy. The availability of cheap, fast, and informative genetic sequencing technologies, combined with growing public interest in genetic information, makes it likely that we will soon witness paparazzi carrying swabs and sterile tubes in search for...

Cyberattack – Intangible Damages in a Virtual World: Property Insurance Companies Declare War on Cyber-Attack Insurance Claims

Cyber-attacks and the monumental damages they cause are becoming seemingly ubiquitous. Large-scale cyber-attacks have become the norm, as opposed to an anomaly.

Disaggregating Chevron

Chevron U.S.A. Inc. v. Natural Resources Defense Council, Inc. is widely regarded as the most important administrative law decision in the history of the United States. The scholarly literature is vast and defies summary or cataloging.

Take It or Leave It: A New Approach to Intermittent Leave for Non-Traditional Family Caretaking Duties Under the Family and Medical Leave Act

American workers are among the most overworked in the entire world: they “work longer hours, have shorter vacations, get less in unemployment, disability, and retirement benefits, and retire later, than people in comparably rich societies . . . .” As a result, millions of those working Americans rely on the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA or the Act) and its leave benefits to balance their lives as working employees with their numerous and ever-growing private obligations. In turn, FMLA-leave related litigation has risen drastically in recent years as employees continue to assert their rights to FMLA leave time.
