can someone explain gasperini v center for humanities? HANNA

Postby sangr » Sun Apr 07, 2013 5:03 pm

sup dudes

so in gasperini
they analyze what the state law does first, then what the issue at hand is to my knowledge. and the opposing federal law is seventh amendment, i believe?

why is gasperini relevant to HANNA development?

the state law governed the damages which P could get.
1) substantive: cap damages; 2) procedural: standard of review (i have no idea why this is procedural)


i just dont really get the overall significance of this case. could anyone help?

thanks
