Goodridge v. Department of Public Health In Goodridge v. Department of Public Health, 440 Mass. 309 (2003), the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court held that it was unconstitutional to forbid people to marry someone of the same sex in Massachusetts. The Court decided that the Commonwealth could not deny a couple the benefits and stability of a civil marriage simply because the petitioners were of the same sex. Similarly, in Loving v. Virginia, 388 U.S. 1 (1967), The Supreme Court held that a Virginia statute outlawing marriage by two people of different races violates the Fourteenth Amendment of the Constitution. In Loving, the court affirmed that marriage is a fundamental civil right to free persons and stated that, “[t]he Fourteenth

In the cases Grutter v. Bollinger and Gratz v. Bollinger (2003), the Supreme Court ruled that the use of Affirmative action in school admission is constitutional if it treats race as one factor among many, its purpose is to achieve a "diverse" class, and it does not substitute for individualized review of applicant, but is unconstitutional if it automatically increases an applicant's chances over others simply because of his or her race. The Grutter case involved a lawsuit against the admission process at the University of Michigan's Law School. The mission of the law school's intensely competitive admission process was to achieve "a mix of students with varying backgrounds and experiences who will respect and learn from one another." While test scores and undergraduate performance were the most important criteria in selecting applicants for admission, they were not determinative. The school also examined a host of subjective factors in making its admissions decisions, including the race and ethnicity of the candidates.
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
This IS reverse discrimination, and it should not <br>be practiced. Race should NOT be considered at all in any admissions <br>program that is federally funded. By trying to right past wrongs on <br>minorities by incurring wrongs on the majority today, it will start a cycle <br>that will, in th e worst case, be never ending. For example, if yesterday <br>a Negro could not get into a college because of discrimination, then today <br>we'll let him in because we want to try to right the wrong of yesterday. <br>But in doing so, we must not admit a white because he is white.

Fourteenth Amendment The website of Lectric Law Library defines the fourteenth amendment not deny anyone of life, liberty or property without the due process of law. According to an article Does the Fourteenth Amendment Guarantee Equal Justice for All, by Steven Calabresi, he states that no state is allowed to either to make or enforce any law that abridges the privileges or immunities of one citizen of the United States (2012). “This amendment was constitutionalizing the Civil Rights Act of 1866 to ban the black codes” (Calabresi, p.150). Amendments and the Models How the models and the Amendments interact The amendments was established to protect the innocent and to make sure that no innocent person is wrongfully convicted, and the two models of the criminal justice system are set up for the use of these amendments. The due process model protects all the rights of everyone, it makes sure that officers have procedures to follow and this model investigates each step of the process closely.
The 15th Amendment prohibited the states from denying people the right to vote because of their race. During the late 1870's, white Americans increasingly disregarded the newly won rights of black Americans. The government itself contributed greatly to denying blacks their rights. In 1883, the Supreme Court ruled that congressional acts to prevent racial discrimination by private individuals were unconstitutional. In 1896, in the case of Plessy vs. Ferguson, the Supreme Court upheld a Louisiana law requiring separate but equal accommodations for blacks and whites in railroad cars.
