    Summary:[概要]会社は計算書類等の作成義務を負っており,株主はこれを閲覧するなどの権利を持つ。では,会社がこの義務に違反して計算書類等を作成していなかった場合はどうか。株主がこれを再度作成して交付せよと請求できるかどうかが問題となる。これにつき,本稿の取り上げる判決は,「再度作成して株主に交付する義務はない」旨判示したが,学説の大半はこれに批判的である。なぜならば,会社の義務違反を助長してしまうからである。本稿は,計算書類等の閲覧謄写請求権を与えた法律の趣旨から考え,本件判決の当否を検証する。[Abstract] Companies are obliged to keep accounts and shareholders have rights to inspect them. Then, can shareholder request to create accounts in case that the company has violated the duty and hasn't kept accounts ? As to this problem, the court described that the defendant company were not obliged to re-create or to deliver the accounts to the shareholders. But almost all the theories oppose to the court. Because the conclusion of court provokes companies violate the duty to keep accounts. In this paper, the author reviews this case taking into account the object of law.

    Summary:An interior wholesaler company(X:who ordered the system from Y) claimed system vendor company(Y). Thelegal basis is the default(Article 415,Civil Code). An enormous amount of personal data which X had been holding,leaked on account of illegal computer access by someone. Then, the system designed by Y didn't equip evenminimum security guard. In this case, the Tokyo District Court partly upheld the claim. In case of informationleakage incidents, companies suffer tremendous cost damage by voluntary apology to all customers. However,without apology, the social enterprise value falls. In this article, the author pointed out the "dilemma"problem.
  • Case Study:Outside Auditor's Liability and Contracts for Limitation of Liability : A Case of Osaka High Court:SEI CREST CO., LTD v. Outside Auditor, Senzu Takashi, 福岡工業大学研究論集, 福岡工業大学研究論集, 49(1), 9 - 25, Sep. 2016
    Summary:In this case, SEI CREST Co., Ltd suffered enormous damages by a representative director's repeated breaches ofthe duty of care. The company bankrupted and claimed outside auditor. The legal bases of claims are breaches ofrecommendation obligations (to recommend to construct internal control systems and to dismiss the CEO). TheOsaka High Court applied the contract for limitation of liability and partly admitted the responsibility of the auditor(Article 423 and 427 Companies Act). However, this study opposes the decision. According to the research, theobligations are imposed by contracts, however, contents of obligations are too vague to be forced.

  • Directors' liability to third party in case of violation of laws : A series of cases to defendant directors of famous moneylender, Senzu Takashi, 福岡工業大学研究論集 = Research bulletin of Fukuoka Institute of Technology, 福岡工業大学研究論集 = Research bulletin of Fukuoka Institute of Technology, 48(1), 11 - 24, Sep. 2015
    Summary:A famous moneylender had been lending money partly in a illegal interest rate. However at that time, provisions of "Payment regarded as interest" (interest"voluntarily" paid by the borrower is valid despite illegal rate)existed. After the moneylender had bankrupted, the borrowers sued the directors of the moneylender according to the Companies Act 429. Most judgements said that defendant directors had continued moneylending contracts to which provisions of "Payment regarded as interest" had not applied, in a illegal rate. However,the judgements denied the directors'liabilities, on the ground that "the directors are not burdened with duty of recalculation". This article reconsiders appropriateness of the judgements on the basis of famous judgements of the Supreme Court and the common theories of Company Law.
