THE “NOT SO” FAIR CREDIT REPORTING ACT: FEDERAL PREEMPTION, INJUNCTIVE RELIEF, AND THE NEED TO RETURN REMEDIES FOR COMMON LAW DEFAMATION TO THE STATES

MEREDITH SCHRAMM-STROSSER

This Comment advocates that Congress clarify, and ultimately modify, the FRCA’s preemptive qualities to allow individuals to seek equitable relief under state common law to enjoin CRAs from republishing false and defamatory information.  This clarification will allow consumers to seek the full spectrum of common law remedies for an action against a CRA pursuant to § 1681h(e) of the FCRA.  Part I discusses the historical relationship between consumer reports and the common law tort of defamation.  Part II discusses the FCRA’s passage and current efficacy of its remedial provisions.  Part III discusses the three types of federal preemption authorized by the Supreme Court of the United States and then addresses how the federal courts have interpreted the FCRA under these preemption guidelines.  Part IV explains how allowing injunctive relief for common law defamation within the FCRA regulatory framework would provide consumers the much needed relief they need and why Congress should remove the provisions of the FCRA that currently preempt state courts from granting consumers equitable relief against CRAs.

THE GREEK DEBT CRISIS: THE WEAKNESSES OF AN ECONOMIC AND MONETARY UNION

LAUREN MACIAS

Throughout the 20th century and into the 21st, the world has seen a surge in globalized business practices, which has inevitably led to the increased interest of countries in foreign affairs.  Today, every country, including the United States, is in some shape or form reliant on another.  The interconnectedness and interdependence of the world’s economies has led to one inescapable conclusion: that no one country can afford to ignore the happenings of another.  For this reason, the massive debt crisis which has engulfed all of Greece (the “Greek Debt Crisis”) has threatened the stability of the euro in not just the Eurozone, but the entire European Union.  This in turn poses an indirect threat to the United States, which has significant ties to Germany, Great Britain, France, and Spain.  As such, we as Americans cannot afford to ignore such a crisis, even if it is half a world away.

CORPORATE LEADERSHIP AND THE UNFINISHED DIVERSITY MOVEMENT

EVAN ROBERTS

Successful corporations today should have directors, officers, and managers who come from a broad set of backgrounds.  Despite substantial research indicating that diversity at the board level can benefit shareholders, employees, and other constituents of a firm, efforts on the part of corporations to increase board diversity are woefully inadequate and are occurring at slow enough rates to stifle corporate growth and success.  Both racial minorities and women remain greatly underrepresented relative to the white male majority and their own numbers in society at large.
