Richard L. Abel. Lawyers on trial : understanding ethical misconduct. Oxford University Press, c2011.

KFC76.5.A2A72 2011

The records of disciplinary proceedings offer a penetrating, and largely ignored, perspective on how lawyers misbehave.  Because the lawyers' professional lives are at stake, the factual records are extraordinarily detailed and the lawyers surprisingly open about their motivations and justifications.  This book presents the stories of ten California lawyers who broke the rules.  It begins by showing how nearly a century of political struggle over self-regulation shapes the way the disciplinary system selects and processes cases and concludes by canvassing reforms that could improve the performance of the legal profession.

 

 

 

 

 

Ralph A. Rossum. The Supreme Court and tribal gaming : California v. Cabazon Band of Mission Indians. University Press of Kansas, c2011.

KF8210.G35R67 2011

 

This book explores the origins, arguments, and impact of California v. Cabazon Band of Mission Indians, the 1987 Supreme Court decision that reasserted the unique federally supported sovereignty of Indian nations, effectively barring individual states from interfering with that sovereignty and opening the door for the explosive growth of Indian casinos over the next two decades.  The author provides historical grounding for the case through a cogent analysis of previous decisions and legislative efforts from the late colonial period to the present, tracking the troubled course of Indian law through a terrain of abrogated treaties, unenforced court decisions, confused statutes, and harsh administrative rulings.
