N.L.R.B. v. FRIENDLY CAB CO., INC., 512 F.3d 1090 (9th Cir. 2008) OPINION by CALLAHAN, Circuit Judge: Congress enacted the National Labor Relations Act ("the Act") to protect the right of employees to participate in collective bargaining for the purpose of negotiating the terms and conditions of their employment. In an effort to avoid an application of the Act and its concomitant collective bargaining requirement, Friendly Cab Company, Inc. ("Friendly") maintains that its taxicab drivers are independent contractors, rather than employees, and are therefore excluded from the protections of the Act. After conducting an unfair labor practice proceeding, the National Labor Relations Board ("NLRB" or "Board") concluded that Friendly's taxicab

Facts: Section 3(c)(1)(D)(ii) of FIFRA authorizes EPA to consider certain previously submitted data only if the "follow-on" and registrant has offered to compensate the original registrant for use of the data. The legislation provides for binding arbitration. However, if the registrants fail to agree on compensation, the arbitrator's decision is subject to judicial review only for "fraud, misrepresentation, or other misconduct." The manufacturing firms engaged in the development and marketing of chemicals used in pesticides, appealed the EPA decisions and began proceedings in Federal District Court to challenge the constitutionality of the arbitration provisions. They argued EPA violated Article III of the Constitution by allocating to arbitrators the functions of judicial officers and by limiting
Under the parol evidence rule, if a court finds that the parties intended their written contract to be a complete and final statement of their agreement, then it will not allow either party to present parol evidence (testimony or other evidence of communications between the parties that are not contained in the contract itself). 15-4a Exceptions to the Parol Evidence Rule Because of the rigidity of the parol evidence rule, the courts have created the following exceptions: 1.

United State – 487 U.S. 99 (1988)” (Braswell v. United States, 487 U.S. 99) the Fifth Amendment would not apply. Braswell incorporated both companies and the “courts have recognized that corporations exist as a separate legal person” (Melvin, 2011, pg. 554). The details of corporate records are not privilege under the Fifth Amendment and “a corporation does not have a Fifth Amendment privilege against self-incrimination” (Braswell v. United States, 487 U.S. 99). Conclusion In this case the courts make it clear that there is absolutely no instance where documents related to a corporation or any person connected to the corporation would be able to rely upon the Fifth Amendment against self-incrimination.
For the first element, which is to prove a joint contract, Thermodyn presented a letter and a document named “Thermodyn and M&MK Relationship” as proof. M&MK argued that Thermodyn presented insufficient facts to establish the existence of a joint venture and that the document cannot be interpreted as a joint contract because they do not satisfy the requirements of a contract under Ohio law. The Court disagreed stating that it is not necessary to show that the parties formally exchanged promises and that a contract implied In fact may be proved by showing that the circumstances surrounding the parties’ transactions make it reasonably certain that an agreement was
It must include the fundamental terms of the agreement with the intention that no further negotiations are to take place. An invitation to treat is different to an offer as it only invites the party to make an offer and it is not intended to be binding. ix) In contract law consideration is required as an inducement to enter into a contract that is enforceable in the courts. It is an essential element for the formation of a contract. What constitutes sufficient consideration, however, has been the subject of continuing legal debate.
Burger. The Associate Justices were William J. Brennan, Jr., Potter Stewart, Byron White, Thurgood Marshall, Harry Blackmun, Lewis F. Powell, Jr., William Rehnquist, and John P. Stevens. In a 5 to 3 decision, the court held that Davis had not been deprived of any constitutional rights under the Due Process Clause. The Court also emphasized that constitutional privacy interests did not cover Davis’s claims. The Court argued that the constitutional right to privacy was limited to matters relating to “marriage, procreation, contraception, family relationships, and child rearing education.” The publication of records of official acts, such as arrests, did not fall under the rubric of privacy rights.
