I’m in D.C. for the AALS conference currently, and hoping to see at least a few of our readers at tonight’s happy hour. I’m also pleased to report that I’ve finished the hard part of grading (I’ve still got to do error-checking) so I’m free to return to blogging/teaching/writing full time (in no particular order).
Although I know that only a few of you are lawyers, I thought I’d share my delight that my students did real well on the exam, which was a tough, 24-hour, take home. A few of them even spotted and dealt with what I think is a very interesting (although on the test marginal) issue: whether a merger clause precludes judicial consideration of pre-contract notification (under Hadley) of otherwise unforseeable damages.
In other news, the WJS blog broke this spicy securities law story. Think that perhaps the relationship discussed is in trouble?
