>Assignment 2: Midweek Production Assignment: Analysis of EEOC’s Complaint Alleging Age Discrimination
Use the Internet, Westlaw, and newspapers to research the background of the case. Draft a one- to two-page memo analyzing the EEOC’s claims.
Using legal research to support your answer, including the appropriate Bluebook citation format, address the question of whether or not you believe EEOC’s case against the law firm has merit.
If a decision is entered in favor of EEOC, what impact will it have on the ability of employers to set age-related rules?
What about a decision in favor of Sidley Austin Brown and Wood? What will this mean for older employees?
Create a memo for the file as a Microsoft Word document.
