Criminal Evidentiary Foundations  Criminal Evidentiary Foundations (Pub. #62978, Release 2017S) – The latest supplement of Criminal Evidentiary Foundations includes a new, robust subsection 6.04A, titled, "The Doctrine of Objective Chances, Character, and Other Act Evidence." Normally, Federal Rule of Evidence 404(b) forbids the prosecution from introducing evidence about a defendant's uncharged misconduct to prove that that he has a disposition or character trait for unlawful conduct. However, under the doctrine of chances, a prosecutor is permitted to admit evidence of prior "accidents" that can persuade a jury that prior incidents are so similar that it is very improbable that the case at bar is actually accidental. A new Appendix has been added to provide cross-references to the 2016 edition of Courtroom Criminal Evidence, authored by Edward Imwinkelried, Paul Giannelli, Francis Gilligan, Fredric Lederer and Leisa Richter.

California State Antitrust and Unfair Competition Law, Revised Edition California State Antitrust and Unfair Competition Law, Revised Edition (Pub. #01577, Release 7) –  One of the most discussed cases amongst the updates in this release was Freeman v. San Diego Association of Realtors, 77 Cal. App. 4th 171 (1999) – which deals with the question of whether an association of multiple listing companies was a single entity or multiple players – in the context of joint ventures/defining the market players, etc. Another important topic is the issue of health care consolidation and Chapter 8 was substantially revised to reflect this trend and related issues. Given the tone of the current administration, it seems that there will be less enforcement of antitrust /competition law at the federal level; Consequently, there is likely to be increased activity at the state level regarding antitrust enforcement and even an increase in private litigation. In light of the reach of the Cartwright Act, attorneys can best be prepared with this resource to help monitor and research California antitrust actions. Now available in eBook format.

Banking Law (Pub. #00052, Release 133) – The passage of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act in 2010 organized the credit regulatory scheme by credit type, such that each credit type has its own transactional process and rules.

Not only will a user find the rules and regulations that pertain to that particular type of credit, but he or she will also be referred to the chapters that govern general rules universally applied to all types of credit. The revised volumes also contain chapters that cover general rules applicable to all credit transactions and general rules applicable to all “open-end” credit transactions, such as credit cards and home equity plans, and “closed-end” credit transactions, such as home mortgage loans. The new chapters are: Chapter 170A, Statutes and Rules Applicable to All Types of Consumer Credit Transactions; Chapter 171A, Open End Credit; Chapter 172A, Open-End Credit–Credit Cards and other Open-End (Not Home Secured) Credit Plans; Chapter 173A, Open-End Credit–Home Equity Plans; 174A, Open-End Credit–Private Education Loans and Other Open-End Credit.

Corbin on Contracts Corbin on Contracts (Pub. #63310 - Release 15R1) – This release provides a new edition of Volume 16, Corbin on Contracts Answer Guide. This edition of the Corbin on Contracts Answer Guide is based on continuous research and analysis that is primarily concerned with maintaining and enhancing the full Corbin on Contracts treatise. While statutory developments are of obvious importance, well over a thousand cases are examined each year, typically resulting in some two hundred and fifty supplements to the treatise. Trends and completed developments in the case law may also suggest supplementary sections to the treatise. Each new Answer Guide assimilates significant developments and trends based on this research to provide the practitioner with the most important discussions of any case law or statutory development related to contract law.

The perennial research has demonstrated clear and convincing evidence of the vibrant nature of contract law that appears in many guises. What may superficially appear to be a case in labor law, corporate law, tort law or in developing fields such as energy law are often decided on the basis of contract law principles. Moreover, contract doctrine is anything but static. For example, at the moment, even something as fundamental as contract formation theory is unsettled. Even more recent developments concerning the enforceability of “terms later” and conflicting case law are discussed in this edition. There are many other illustrations of developments and incipient trends throughout contract law. The digital revolution affects contract doctrine in many ways, some of which remain puzzling. The contract law of the 21st century is no longer relegated to domestic case law and statutes. Eighty nations have adopted the Vienna Convention. CISG is now as much a part of American contract law as the Uniform Commercial Code.
