Remedies Ninth teaches students how to traverse the complex territory of choice and measurement of plaintiffs' remedies. Accessible and readable decisions build on upper-level students' first-year courses in contracts, torts, property, constitutional law, and civil procedure. Remedies Ninth is organized to teach students how to choose and measure damages, injunctions, and restitution. It emphasizes the lawyer's tactics in addition to the court's decisions. It examines law and economics in selecting between tort and contract remedies. Remedies Ninth teaches the substance and remedies of unjust enrichment law with provocative cases and discussion of the Restatement (Third) of Restitution and Unjust Enrichment (A.L.I. 2011). New decisions in Remedies Ninth examine medical and emotional distress damages, the American attorney-fee Rule and the private-attorney-general exception, state constitutional limits on damages caps, the continuing impact of eBay v. MercExchange on injunctions, unconscionability in a contract to arbitrate, contractual limitations on recovery of damages, restitutionary disgorgement remedies for opportunistic breach of contract, and remedies for harm to pets.

Modern American Remedies: Cases and Materials is known for a strong organization that highlights remedies categories and concepts within daily teaching units of roughly equal length, each focused on a clear central theme. The text achieves a solid balance of public and private law and integrates basic legal and economic information, without letting either dominate the book. Memorable cases and well-written notes offer plenty of information to inform class discussion. Following the same organization, scope of coverage, and daily units as the Fourth Edition, the Concise Fourth features tightly focused notes emphasizing basic principles and central points, with fewer illustrations and fewer collateral issues. The volume of notes has been reduced by more than 35%. The Fourth Edition introduces 36 new principal cases, including: In re September 11th Litigation (on the measure of damages for the destruction of the World Trade Center); eBay v. MercExchange LLC (on the prerequisites to an injunction, or on undue hardship, depending on one's point of view); Exxon Shipping Co. v. Baker (on the federal common law standard for measuring punitive damages); and Philip Morris USA v. Williams (on the constitutional limits on punitive damages). Substantial reworking of Chapter 8, on restitution, reflects the Restatement (Third) of Restitution and Unjust Enrichment.

Cases and Materials on Oil and Gas Law

Author: John Lowe

ISBN: 1683288327
Release Date: 2018-05-11
Genre:

This new edition of the popular textbook on the law of oil and gas focuses first on ownership of the resource. Chapter 1 examines the common law of oil and gas ownership and the remedies that protect and restrict ownership rights. Chapter 2 focuses on the foundational business relationship used to develop oil and gas in the United States--the oil and gas "lease." Chapter 3 examines common problems encountered in oil and gas conveyancing. Chapter 4 explores legislative and regulatory responses to problems created by common-law ownership concepts, focusing on oil and gas conservation law. Chapter 5 examines the body of law designed to regulate environmental impacts by following the oil and gas development process chronologically, from land acquisition to abandonment. Chapter 6 considers transactions other than leasing and conveying that are frequently encountered in the industry, including assignments, farmouts, operating agreements, drilling contracts, and gas sales contracts. Finally, Chapter 7 examines the complex body of law that must be considered when oil and gas development is taking place on property owned by the federal, state, or tribal governments. Many instructors will build the basic oil and gas law course around Chapters 1 through 4 and save Chapters 5 through 7 for advanced courses. The book is completely updated, reflecting new case law in the traditional oil and gas states and evolving case law in eastern states. The book is further updated to cover shale oil and gas resources.
