In this 7-2 case was the first to Craig v. Boren, which stated that Oklahoma having two different drinking ages for males and females was unconstitutional as it did not provide justification as to why the genders had different standards (Chicago-Kent College of Law, 2015a). Justice Thomas did not concur or descent in this case but instead chose to abstain from ruling on the case due to the fact that his son was a cadet at VMI at the time of the case (Chicago-Kent College of Law, 2015b).

President Lincoln’s believed that “all men are created equal”. While Atticus attempted to provide the jurors with a sense of duty and to take the high road, they did not recognize Tom Robinson as an equal in the courts. In the novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, Atticus argues against Maycomb’s racial values to defend Tom Robinson through the use of logical reasoning and emotional appeal. Atticus uses logos in an attempt to explain why Tom could not have been guilty. He begins his speech by saying that there was not enough evidence for the court to even come to trial, stating, “The State has not produced one iota of medical evidence that the crime Tom Robinson is charged with ever took place.” He points out that the evidence shows that Mayella

The court noted that neither the written job description for the inspector positions nor the mutual agreement made reference to the rotation of the job. The Job rotation policy had never been the general practice of this company in the past. The court also noted that the inspector position does not exist for the purpose of having employees rotate between lines 7, 8 and 9, the use of a rotation system had no bearing on the number of employees needed to perform the work, and rotating between lines is not a highly desirable function for which plaintiff was exactly hired, Indeed, it is the contrasting of a specialized skill of the employees.

It was ruled that the university did not violate any rights by deciding to not rehire Roth, however they courts ruled that Roth was owed an explanation by the university. (Board of Regents v. Roth, 408 U.S. 564
The court determined that the plaintiff did not show enough direct or circumstantial evidence to survive a motion of summary judgment on her reverse discrimination claims, which in turn are based on the analysis used in Title VII cases. The court finds that the plaintiff’s claim of race discrimination under the Elliot- Larson Act must fail as well. The plaintiff failed to provide evidence that showed the court any act of illegal discrimination. The plaintiff used the universities affirmative action plan in her favor. The university agreed that their action plan does state the support of minorities, it had no barring on the plaintiffs outcome of the position she applied for.
A business can’t fire an employee who is disabled – People with disabilities are protected by the law and employers will be penalized if such an employee is dismissed because of this reason. The Americans with Disabilities Act 1990 prohibits employment discrimination against qualified applicants or employees with a physical or mental disability (Reference for Business, n.d.). Disabled persons most often assume that they can’t be fired because of their disability.

But this doesn’t mean that an employer CANNOT fire or discipline that employee (Kielich, 2015).
