Any student who failed to follow the policy would be sent home immediately and suspended until they decided to follow the schools policy. The families of those fellow students didn’t decide to file a lawsuit until after the Iowa Civil Liberties Union approached their family, and ACLU agreed to help the family with their case. The parents in turn, filed the lawsuit in the U.S. District Court, which upheld the decision of the Des Moines school board.

Amid this hostility against the student-held prayers, the Supreme Court debated whether this practice violated the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause. The Establishment Clause prohibited the preference by the U.S Government of one religion over another. Furthermore, this clause declared that preferential religious actions held in public domains were unconstitutional. Although this clause prohibited public religious invocations, it did not prohibit religious practices within enclosed settings. After analyzing the case and calling for several holdings, on June 19th of the year 2000 the Supreme Court decided that these practices were indeed a violation to the United States Constitution.

The Pregnancy Discrimination Act of 1974, which defined “sex” discrimination to include discrimination on the basis of pregnancy and child birth (Jennings, 2006). Because Paula is not pregnant, she has the right under the Equal Employment Opportunity and cannot can not be treated less equally which would be disparate treatment. Management should grant the transfer, make sure Paula is aware of the chemicals in case she does get pregnant and place Sam on probation excluding him from being around Paula. If his action occurs or he continually harasses Paula, Sam should lose his job to prevent the harassment from going to court. Newcorp would face the charges and pay Paula if she wins the case in
“Bong Hits 4 Jesus” “Bong Hits for Jesus” is in reference to the 2002 freedom of speech case between Deborah Morse and Joseph Frederick. It all began when Morse, a high school principle, suspended 18-year-old Frederick after he displayed a banner that read “bong hits 4 Jesus” across the street from the school during the 2002 Olympic torch relay. As a result, Frederick sued, claiming that his constitutional right to freedom of speech was violated. His suit was dismissed by the federal district court, but on the appeal, the ninth circuit court reversed it, concluding that Frederick’s speech rights were violated. In the end, the court ruled in favor of Morse.
Before he died in 1954, without even acknowledging his son, Scott defaulted on the judgment. In 1939, Kathleen and her brother were sentenced to five years of imprisonment for the robbery of a West Virginia gas station; Charles went to live with a maternal aunt and a sadistic uncle. This uncle often spoke of him as a “sissy” and gave him girls’ school clothes to assist him in “acting like a man”. Charlie’s strictly religious aunt believed all pleasures were sinful. On the other hand, his alcoholic tramp for a mother let him go about as he wished, so this put him in between some very different disciplinary approaches.
The Federal District Court upheld the tiebreaker and dismissed the charges because they said that State law did not bar the District’s use of the racial tiebreaker. They said the State’s Civil Rights Act bars only preferential treatment programs where race or gender is used by government to select a less qualified applicant over a more qualified applicant. The Parents appealed and the Circuit Court reversed the decision. The Court found that while achieving racial diversity and avoiding racial isolation are compelling government interests, Seattle’s use of the racial tiebreaker was not narrowly tailored to achieve these interests. The District appealed this decision and the Ninth Circuit Court sat En Banc to hear the case.

Dear Principal Hopkins: It has come to my attention that the school faculty and staff have begun to ponder the idea of having mandatory school uniforms for our school. I believe that this is not only a horrible idea, but also a huge violation of our freedom of speech. You also have a problem, in that there would be some students who would refuse to adhere to the new “dress code”. In 1968 there were three students who were suspended from school for wearing black armbands to protest the Government's policy in Vietnam. They decided to argue their case in court saying that their freedom of speech had been violated and that they were passive in their “protest” and did not infringe upon the rights of their friends.
