Edmund P. Edmonds

Authors Louis H. Schiff and Robert M. Jarvis set out to fill a void in the vast array of legal teaching materials by creating Baseball and the Law: Cases and Materials, the first casebook to concentrate on “The National Pastime.” Their goal was to create a casebook that would propel the expansion of teaching law and baseball courses in law schools. By pulling together appropriate cases and primary reading material with detailed and carefully crafted notes, the authors have admirably completed this task with over 1000 pages of text to allow faculty and students in the legal academy a resource ...

Doping Control, Mandatory Arbitration, And Process Dangers For Accused Athletes In International Sports , Maureen A. Weston

Maureen A Weston

Athletes in a professional sports league in the United States are members of players unions, which assist their athletes in obtaining representation when they are involved in dispute resolution proceedings associated with disciplinary actions. However, individual athletes who participate in international competitions do not enjoy the same benefits. When these athletes are required to submit to mandatory drug testing, with attendant potential criminal liability, and to mandatory arbitration, they should be provided meaningful access to competent legal representation when their athletic careers are in jeopardy. This article considers the legal framework, process, and recourse for athletes in international competition to ...

Anatomy Of The First Public International Sports Arbitration And The Future Of Public Arbitration After Usada V. Floyd Landis, Maureen A. Weston Prof.

Maureen A Weston

Mere weeks after American professional cyclist Floyd Landis seemingly won the 2006 Tour de France, the United States Anti-Doping Association (USADA), under the authority granted to it by the U.S. Congress, and through its enforcement of the World Anti-Doping Code (WADC), accused him of having committed doping violations during the race. Landis vehemently denied these allegations, and accused the French laboratory that had performed the testing of his post-race samples, the Laboratoire National du Depistage du Dopage (LNDD), of bias and misconduct in his case.

Under USADA rules, an American athlete accused of doping may request an arbitration hearing ...


The Other Avenues Of Hall Street And Prospects For Judicial Review Of Arbitral Awards, Maureen A. Weston Prof. Dec 2009

The Other Avenues Of Hall Street And Prospects For Judicial Review Of Arbitral Awards, Maureen A. Weston Prof.

Maureen A Weston

In Hall Street Associates, L.L.C. v. Mattel, Inc., the U.S. Supreme Court held that the Federal Arbitration Act (FAA) provided the exclusive grounds for judicial vacatur and modification of arbitral awards covered under the Act. In so ruling, the Court rejected the contention that the FAA’s requirement to enforce arbitration contracts as written includes private contracts that seek to expand the scope of judicial review beyond the grounds enumerated in the FAA. Despite holding that parties cannot expand a court’s power to review an arbitration award under the FAA, the Court alluded to the possibility ...

Simply A Dress Rehearsal? U.S. Olympic Sports Arbitration And De Novo Review At The Court Of Arbitration For Sport, Maureen A. Weston Prof.

Maureen A Weston

This article discusses issues that can arise when American atheletes attempt to deal with the web of national and international dispute resolution procedures and the emerging lex sportiva, which govern international sports.

Congress has designated the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) as the domestic organization that handles disputes involving Olympic-eligible American athletes. If the USOC declares an athlete ineligible or hands down some other sanction, the case can be submitted to the American Arbitration Association (AAA), the tribunal ...


Reexamining Arbitral Immunity In An Age Of Mandatory And Professional Arbitration, Maureen A. Weston Prof. Dec 2003

Reexamining Arbitral Immunity In An Age Of Mandatory And Professional Arbitration, Maureen A. Weston Prof.

Maureen A Weston

In the past ten to twenty years, the use of arbitration as a form of private dispute resolution has proliferated as a result of mandatory predispute and form arbitration contracts between corporate entities and their customers, patients, or employees. This increase has spawned a market for professional private arbitrators and an industry of private businesses that provide arbitration support and administrative services (provider institutions). Under the doctrine of arbitral immunity, both arbitrators and provider institutions are immune from civil liability. The result of this immunity, however, is that parties injured by arbitral misconduct have limited recourse and no effective remedy ...

Employer's Exclusive Control Over Selection Of Arbitrators Held Invalid, Adam Epstein

Adam Epstein

Discussion of the 2003 Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals case McMullen v. Meijer, Inc. While alternative forms of dispute resolution such as arbitration and mediation are now commonplace and are effectively utilized to avoid litigation and resolve disputes between employers and employees, the procedure in the arbitration process must be fair. Upon the hire, employers often provide their employees with an employment handbook that specifically discusses procedures involving termination. Often the employee handbook, if one exists, is viewed as a contract and is often a first step in determining the proper method of dispute resolution and procedure. In this case ...
