“Cops” for Commercial Law Profs

Today in my Article 9 class, we reached one of my favorite parts of the course: the law of the repo man. I have blogged before about the philosophical significance of the repo man, but today we focused on the more mundane issue of what constitutes a breach of the peace under UCC 9-609. Fortunately, YouTube came to my rescue. It turns out that there is a whole YouTube genre of repo-men (and a few women) filming and posting their work. Its like “Cops” for commercial law profs. (Warning: profanity)

My class was pretty unanimous in their belief that this constituted a breach of the peace, but — I am happy to say — could not agree on when the breach actually happened. Now if I could find some YouTube videos on the Statute of Frauds.
