Remedies (20499). 4 units. You've won the case. But what do you actually get? This course is about what courts do (and do not do) for litigants who have been found to be the victims of legal wrong. Though we will give some attention to every basic category of relief -- damages, restitution, declaratory judgments, and injunctions -- our main focus will be on remedies that plaintiffs seek in litigating against government entities (federal, state, and local). In particular we will consider the successes and failures of judicial remedies as a means to influence and reform the behavior of complex public organizations. Highlights include structural reform injunctions, agencies' refusals to acquiesce in judicial rulings, and the contempt power, including the willingness (or unwillingness) of judges to use that power against public officials. Self-scheduled examination. N. Parrillo.
