Current Law Students / Objection to Venue?
« on: December 12, 2008, 12:04:32 AM »
under 28 USC 1406(b), "nothing will impair the jurisdiction of a district court involving a party who doesnm't interpose timely and sufficient objection to the venue."

when are you supposed to object to venue? And so that means if a court decides a case, and it turns out that it was in the wrong venue the whole time, the parties can never object to the lack of jurisdiction even on appeal?

does anyone have a short and sweet summary of the court's rationale in deciding this case? 

aside from exceptions like promissory estoppel and material benefit rule... what exactly are the NECESSARY components of a traditional contract?

just consideration?

meeting of the minds + consideration?

consideration + offer and acceptance?

i feel like every time i read another case or chapter, the requirements of a contract are defined in a slightly different way.

i'm so confused.

Current Law Students / Contracts: UCC and Restatement v. Common Law?
« on: December 07, 2008, 06:31:47 AM »
Can someone clarify when I'm supposed to apply which law on a contracts exam? I know UCC --> goods, Restatement --> services.... is common law grouped with the restatement or does it apply to everything else?  When I want to cite cases, is that only useful for non-goods and stuff that would fall under the Restatement?
