BABY M: AN UNREQUITED INVITATION
By: PASQUALE GUGLIETTA
8 Rutgers J. L. & Pub. Pol'y 876 (Spring 2011)
 
In re Baby M presented a truly groundbreaking fact pattern that had not yet been adjudicated in New Jersey, and has achieved a near iconic status, in New Jersey and across the country. Its legacy is somewhat surprising, though, since the case itself did very little in terms of announcing new law.

SYMPOSIUM
8 Rutgers J. L. & Pub. Pol'y 934 (Spring 2011)
 
Male Voice: I'm here to support my wife, but I'm, in truth, fascinated by this conversation. I have two factual questions to ask, which seem to be fairly fundamental and the first, I think, could be for Kim. And that is how do you price the labor?
