Richard H.W. Maloy
Professor Emeritus Richard H.W. Maloy practiced law in south Florida for 34 years. In excess of 20 years he has taught at Miami's St. Thomas Law School. During a considerable period of his academic career he has taught Remedies, both in the U.S. and in Spain. Prof. Maloy has drawn from both careers in writing his Remedies casebook. It is his wish that it will offer the student of law, as well as the practitioner, assistance in learning that discipline. Seven chapters are devoted to that so important subject -- the equity jurisdiction of the courts. One chapter deals with a somewhat arcane remedy, entitled Restitution. Three chapters deal with the alternative to equitable relief -- damages. So often remedies will evolve from the U.S. Constitution and/or statutes. There is one chapter that deals with them. Often clients' problems arise out of personal, familial and school relationships. One chapter addresses them. The last chapter in the book concerns how to give effect to the remedy or remedies asserted, to wit, judgments. A client comes to a lawyer's office with a problem, and usually does not have a clue as to how to solve it. It is the lawyer's function to devise a suitable attempt to solve that problem for the client. The more learned the lawyer is in the procedures for solving that problem, i.e. the remedies, the more she or he serves the client's interest. The object of this book, based on the author's experience as a practitioner and teacher, is to point in that direction, lawyers and students wishing to become lawyers.
