Efficiency Contracting for Breach

"Harnessing Litigation by Contract Design"; Yale Law Journal, Vol. 115, 2005-06, ROBERT E. SCOTT, University of Virginia School of Law, GEORGE G. TRIANTIS, University of Virginia School of Law. http://papers.ssrn.com/paper.taf?abstract_id=722263 This article explores commerical contracting in light of specific and vague terms (rules and standards), as well as terms allocating litigation burdens.

Thus, the anticipated path of litigation is relevant to contract design.
