Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, 347 U.S. 483 (1954)
Facts: Black children were denied admission to schools attended by white children under laws that permitted or required segregation by race. The children sued.
Issue: Do separate but equal laws in the area of public education deprive black children of the equal protection of the laws guaranteed by the Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution?
Rule: No. The race-based segregation of children into “separate but equal” public schools violates the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment and is unconstitutional. Analysis: Separating black children from others solely because of their race generates a feeling of inferiority as to their status in the community that may affect their hearts and minds in a way unlikely ever to be undone. The impact of segregation is greater when it has the sanction of law.
Conclusion (Vote): 9 Votes for Brown, 0 Votes against, Legal provision; Equal Protection
Impact: Schools can no longer be segregated.

Miranda v. Arizona, 384 U.S. 436 (1966)
Facts: Miranda was unaware of his rights under the Fifth Amendment of the United States Constitution and offered incriminating evidence during police interrogations.
Issues: The question is whether or not the police is required to notify the arrested defendants of their Fifth Amendment constitutional rights against self-incrimination before they interrogate the defendants?
Rule: The U.S. Supreme Court established a “bright line” rule to govern custodial interrogations, maintaining that they are inherently coercive because: (a) Suspects are held in strange surroundings where they’re not free to leave, and (b) Skilled police officers use unrefined methods to “crack” the will of suspects. The bright-line rule prevents police coercion while still allowing police pressure. During custodial…...

...rmWhat is IRAC? IRAC stands for Issue, Rule, Application, Conclusion. It is one way to structure legal analysis. An effective essay (no matter the overall length) follows some form of the IRAC structure where it is organized around each of these elements for each and every issue and subissue identified as a legal problem. IRAC is an extremely useful tool in organizing any law related essay answer. It is not the only way to structure an answer, but it helps to make sure all bases are covered. So, until you achieve the level of mental and written fluency where you can weave together rule and fact in a seamless tapestry and transition between thoughts without loss of either the substance or your reader, you might choose to rely on some form of IRAC to keep focused. Use IRAC as tool for organizing your thinking and your writing. Think of it as a weaving loom that is there only to support the threads of your argument, while you weave and create an intricately beautiful piece of fabric, i.e. a complete, logical argument. Soon, the process will become automatic and you will rely less and less on the loom. Until then, you have something you can rely on to guide you through the process. How to IRAC 1. State the issue The issue is the most important element in the analysis and must be stated in a way to show what is in controversy. The legal question weaves together the rule and the facts particular to the problem you identified. Articulate the issue by creating the legal question...

Irac Method of Bell vs. Greenbrier Nursing and Rehabilitation Center

...IRAC Method of Bell vs. Greenbrier Nursing and Rehabilitation Center Shaquita Spruill Business Law (LAW/531) Michael Meeusen September 2, 2013 IRAC Method of Bell vs. Greenbrier Nursing and Rehabilitation Center Case: Martha Bull, 76, who died at the Greenbrier Nursing and Rehabilitation Center April 7, 2008 after staff failed to act on a doctor's orders to get her transferred to a hospital emergency room for treatment of severe abdominal pain. Issue: Has negligence been demonstrated? Rule: Negligence requires that a duty was owed, that the duty was breached, and that the breach was the actual and proximate cause of damage. Analysis: Greenbrier Nursing and Rehabilitation Center owed a duty of care to Bell which was to get her to a hospital. Greenbrier Nursing and Rehabilitation Center breeched their duty of care by not following through with the doctors’ orders. The breech of this duty caused injury to Bell which was death. Greenbrier Nursing Center is the proximate cause of negligence which means the negligent party is not necessarily liable for all damages set in motion by his or her negligent. Conclusion: According to "Arkansas Times" (2013), the jury found the nursing home guilty of negligence, medical malpractice and violation of resident's rights, but it did not specifically find that the nursing home caused Bull's death. New legislation from the 2013 legislation, sponsored by Sen. Jonathan Dismang, will make it impossible to sue a nursing home except for...

...Risk Management- Drunken Patient Lawsuit LAW/531 February 17, 2014 Risk Management- Drunken Patient Lawsuit The IRAC method is an instructional tool that can aid students in the comprehension and evaluation of information so that they can make informed value decisions. It is an acronym for Issue, Rule, Analysis, and Conclusion. Although this is a legal model used to evaluate hypothetical situations in law cases, it is by no means limited to the study of the law. Useful for case studies presented in varied mediums such as narratives, videos/films, or recordings, the IRAC method may be applied to other activities such as defining a term or demonstrating a concept, principle, relationship, analogy, or contrasting idea. Often the instructional focus is on the end result of case study discussion rather than on how to "walk through" a method or approach to be used by the students in the case analysis (Bittner, M.1990). Issue: A recent court ruling should motivate hospital risk managers to conduct a careful periodic review of their facility's procedures and legal obligations when it comes to treating intoxicated patients. The patient, Kevin Kowalski, later wandered onto a nearby highway and was struck by a car, leaving him paralyzed below the neck. Throughout the case, Mr. Kowalski contended that even though he decided on his own to leave the hospital, the hospital should have prevented him from doing so based on his level of inebriation. Analyze: In order to......

In the course of her 40-day training period, Harris had a “preventable” accident causing minor damages on the bus’s back door glass. As soon as she completed her training and became an at-will employee, her probationary driver status started. She then encountered her second preventable accident. On top of her accidents, Harris had her “miss-out” incidents, where she neglected to call her supervisor at least an hour notice, informing about her absent of her shift. Per City’s regulation, drivers allowed to have at least one or two miss-out annually. However, this may imply a “reliability problem” with the driver.

Irac Case Study

...IRAC Case Study LAW 531 Case Summary Superstar Kim Kardashian was victorious in a legal battle with her estranged husband Kris Humphries. Kris Humphries demanded access to view emails Kim Kardashian had in a closed e-mail account. These e-mails were personal private property of Kim Kardashian’s and not a marital asset or a real asset. Because this was not a business situation, Kris Humphries could not claim he had rights to Kim’s personal e-mails. Cheeseman (2013) states, real property is immovable or attached to immovable land or buildings, whereas personal property is movable. In this situation, the e-mail account in question is personal property. According to FindLaw (2013), E-mail privacy is derived from the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and is governed by the "reasonable expectation of privacy" standard. Rule   Cheeseman (2013)  states, "The law protects the rights of owners of personal property to use, sell, dispose of, control, and prevent others from trespassing on their rights." In the divorce case of Kardashian vs. Humphries the personal property belonged to one party of a divorce and does not belong to the other party. It is lawful for the owner of the personal party to prevent the other party from trespassing on their rights.   In the case of divorce a party who wants access to the other party's personal property does not have a legal right to it. If this was a business managerial setting the electronic communication would be consider...

...The IRAC Method of Case Study Analysis LAW/531 April 27, 2014 The IRAC Method of Case Study Analysis Facts In the case of Martha Bull, 76, against Greenbrier Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, negligence was found in her death. Ms. Bull was admitted to the center for rehabilitation after a stroke.

...Learning Team Reflection: Week 2 IRAC Brief Case: An appeal of a judgment made by Nineteenth Judicial District Court, Number 555,931, Sec. 27, parish of East Battalion Rouge, State of Louisiana, which upheld a jury verdict finding the appellate defendant All Star Chevrolet, Inc. d/b/a All Star Automotive Group and Employer insurance of Wausau liable to plaintiff appellate Russell Cole.

...IRAC Brief – Stryker Corporation and The Securities Exchange Commissions University of Phoenix IRAC Brief – Stryker Corporation and The Securities Exchange Commissions Introduction / Purpose Business managers are faced with challenges of legal risks by conducting domestic and international business transactions.

...IRAC Brief Case Analysis LaTasha Edwards, Margarita Castaneda, Jesse Ellison, and Jonathan Deschine University of Phoenix Business Law 531 James Rambeau July 1, 2015 IRAC Brief Case Analysis Currently, teachers of California are considered government workers and have to pay union dues, according to the law, as a condition of employment. “This arrangement was established under the 1977 Supreme Court case, Abood v. Detroit Board of Education” (Kovacs, 2015, para. 2). The purpose of the lawsuit is to bring back the right to choose and eliminate paying union dues by force that can benefit organizations teachers do not support. The teachers are being represented by Center for Individual Rights and are challenging laws in relation to agency fees under freedom of speech and association grounds. Issue: Was the right to choose and eliminate paying union dues reestablished? Rule: “Typically, California teacher union dues cost upwards of a $1000 per year. Although California law allows teachers to opt-out of the thirty percent or so of their dues devoted to overt political lobbying, they may not opt out of the sixty to seventy percent of their dues the union determines in devoted to collective bargaining. Requiring teachers to pay these “agency fees” assumes that collective bargaining is non political” (Kovacs, 2015, para. 4). Analysis:” “agency fees” laws, which require government workers to pay union dues as a condition of employment in order to negotiate political...

Kliger Rojo v. Kliger, 801 P.2d 373 (Cal. 1990) Plaintiffs Emma Rojo and Teresa Maloney were employed as assistants by defendants Erwin H. Kliger, a practicing physician, and Erwin H. Kliger, M.D., a medical corporation (hereafter referred to collectively as defendant). In August 1986, there was a complaint filed by the plaintiffs against the defendant. The plaintiff accused the defense of violating FEHA and “intentional infliction of emotional distress”. The Plaintiffs alleged that during their employment the defendant subjected them to sexually harassing remarks and demands for sexual favors. These remarks resulted in the plaintiffs being forced to leave their employment. Defense moved for summary judgment due to the fact that, “FEHA constituted plaintiffs' exclusive remedy and that plaintiffs had failed to exhaust their administrative remedies under the act.” Plaintiffs argued, “FEHA does not supplant other state law remedies, including common law claims, relating to discrimination in employment, and that pursuit of the administrative remedy is not a condition precedent to judicial relief.” The trial court granted defendant's motion......
