Charles E. Rounds, Jr., Proponents of Extracting Slavery Reparations From Private Interests Must Contend with Equity’s Maxims, 42 U. Tol. L. Rev. 673 (2011): That the national conversation on slavery reparations has been, and continues to be, a hopeless babble is a direct result of the marginalization of Equity in the American law schools. This article on slavery reparations is, first and foremost, a case study on the continuing real world relevance of Equity’s maxims. These are perfectly good wheels that were invented centuries ago; they don’t need to be reinvented. On the merits of the slavery reparationists’ claims against private interests, Rounds lets the chips fall where they may. At page 700 of the article is a listing of five of his prior law review articles. They address the ongoing practical relevance of other aspects of Equity jurisprudence (such as the equitable remedy of restitution for unjust enrichment) in other contexts (such as IP rights infringement). This article completes the series.
