In some jurisdictions, including California, North Dakota, and South Dakota, a statute provides that a general release does not normally include claims of which the releasor was unaware at the time he or she executed the release.
(That is, is being mildly pleased closer in nature to being slightly angry or to being intensely rapturous?) The Velasquez model goes farther in addressing these difficult issues than many with its computational mechanisms of elicitors and releasors.
Moreover, since CERCLA releases are likely to be entered into by major companies, there is little need for a special federal rule to protect releasors of CERCLA recovery rights from their own ignorance or weak bargaining power.
