Facts: these are the most important details of the case – who the parties are, what happened, and so forth.

Write a case brief on an American employment law case. Below is the template
Case: Name of the case (and year of the decision).
Facts: These are the most important details of the case – who the parties are, what happened, and so forth. Choose only the most relevant ones.
Procedural History: Please explain the case’s history in the legal system in 1-2 sentences (example: this case originated in District of South Carolina and was appealed to the 4th Circuit before being appealed to the Supreme Court).
Issue: What is the legal concern in this case (in other words, why are these parties here)? This should be written in the form of 1-2 questions.
Holding: What did the court decide? What was the final count of votes (if available)?
Majority Opinion Reasoning: Why did the court reach its holding? What new rule has the court established for use by future cases (precedent)? This is a broad theoretical line of reasoning that can be taken and used again later. How does this new rule apply to the facts of the case, leading to the decision?
Concurring Opinion: These are written by justices who agreed with the final holding of the case, but differ in how they reached that conclusion. List their reasons separately by justice. Note: some cases may not have a concurring opinion.
Dissenting Opinion Reasoning: These are written by justices who disagreed with both the final holding of the case and in how they reached that conclusion. List their reasons separately by justice. Note: some cases may not have a dissenting opinion.
Brief the case according to the format provided.
Do not brief the case from “canned” summaries; read the case yourself and use your own language (avoid legalese)!
