A. Ragazzo and Douglas K. Moll
Written by Professor Robert A. Ragazzo and Professor Douglas K. Moll at the University of Houston Law Center, this title is an in-depth study of the law of closely held businesses. It covers topics such as agency, closely held corporations, limited partnerships, limited liability partnerships, limited liability companies, and business trusts, etc. It also includes problems for comprehensive review and provides detailed information regarding the Delaware statutes and the uniform and model statutes such as the Model Business Corporation Act and Restatement (Third) of Agency. A statutory supplement is included.
This title is essential for faculty who are teaching business organization classes and desire to focus on closely held businesses.
Joan Cheever was co-counsel
for Walter Williams, a Texas death row inmate and successfully stayed
his execution until October 1994. At her clientís request she stood next
to him at his execution and the experience would change her life dramatically.
Cheever wondered whether Williams would have killed again if he had his
death sentence reversed and was paroled. She embarks on a dangerous journey
to meet the former death row inmates who in 1972 had their death sentences
commuted to life as a result of the United States Supreme Courtís declaration
that the death penalty was unconstitutional. Cheever would discover that
many former inmates were leading productive lives while a small portion
actually did kill again.
