2. Recent Case: Police can Enter Home Under Emergency Aid Exception Michigan v.
Fisher 130 S. Ct 546 U.S. Supreme Court December 07, 2009 No. 09-91
In an assault prosecution, grant of petitioner's motion to suppress evidence that
he pointed a rifle at an officer when he entered his house is reversed where the
officer did not violate the Fourth Amendment because he was responding to a report
of a disturbance and encountered a tumultuous situation in the house, which justified
a warrantless search under the emergency aid exception.
3. Estate planning for Business Owners- Buy-Sell Agreements
One estate planning tool that can protect your family and your business partners
is a buy-sell agreement. This legal document gives owners the first shot at buying
an interest in the company if another owner pulls out or dies. Ideally, these contracts
are drawn up when a business is launched but they can be entered into later.
But don't wait too long. If you die without an agreement, it may be difficult for
your heirs to know how to handle important matters that could have a significant
effect on the value, continuation or disposition of your business. Even if you
stay with the company for decades, the time to prevent disputes is before they occur.
Minimize legal fees, as well as sleepless nights, by solving the "what if" issues
Ask these questions to determine where you need professional assistance to prevent
-Should the agreement apply only to the current owners or should it be binding on
all owners throughout the life of the business entity?
-Should the agreement supersede all other agreements to redeem a business interest?
-Is the agreement reviewed annually? (Changes in price or terms should require a
unanimous vote of the owners.)
Type of Agreement
-Should the agreement be structured as a redemption or cross-purchase agreement?
-Should the agreement be structuredto require the seller to sell and the buyer to
buy? To give the buyer an option to require the seller to sell? To give the seller
an option to require the buyer to buy? To give a right of first refusal to the buyer?
As a combination of any of these options above?
-Should the death of an owner cause an automatic buyout of the owners interest?
Or should his or her family be allowed to remain as an owner?
Price and Time
-Should the buyout price from the estate or heirs of a deceased owner be addressed?
What about the buyout price to a disabled owner? An owner who resigns or is dismissed?
An owner who goes bankrupt? If yes, when should it be paid? What interest rate should
the obligation bear?
-Should there be a difference in price if there's an amiable parting of ways?
-Should the price reflect the fact that you're selling to a long time business associate
rather than an outsider?
