Case Review: Employment Law & Affirmative Action

| January 31, 2017


For this assignment, you will continue your pursuit of understanding your issue, this time by reviewing three actual legal cases dealing with the issue you selected. Case summaries and opinions can be found in our library, and elsewhere online at no cost. Although you may choose any cases you like which are relevant to your issue, it would be prudent to choose cases that are as recent as possible, and of a fairly consequential nature. For this reason, you should choose cases litigated in the federal court system, unless there is a compelling reason for an alternative. If you’re looking for cases that set precedents (i.e. “landmark” cases) you might consider looking to the legislative history of any relevant laws (e.g. if you’re discussing and ADA issue, you may find case references in the ADA legislative history). You may also find cases referenced in the articles you reviewed in Week 1. If all else fails, you might try a Google search for relevant case law.

Once you identify three cases, report on the following for each one:

1. Who were the parties to the lawsuit? How were they related?

2. What was the nature of the issue in the suit? Was it identical to the issue you chose in Week 1? If not, how is it related and relevant?

3. How was the issue decided and why?

4. What precedent (if any) did the case set for future litigation?

5. Did the case leave any questions unanswered with respect to the issue at hand?
