Instructions

This assignment is comprised of 2 parts, the first of which is due this week. Part II will be due in Week 7.

In Part I this week, choose a case from your state that involves civil rights or civil liberties that wound its way up to the United States Supreme Court.

If your state does not have a case that ended up in the United States Supreme Court, choose a civil rights case from another state that ended up in the Supreme Court of the United States.

Here is a brief description of civil rights and civil liberties: Civil rights refers to equal social opportunities under the law.

It gives you these freedoms such as the right to vote, the right to public education, or a fair trial, among other things, regardless of your wealth or race.

Civil liberties mean freedom of religion, equal treatment and due process under the law, and the right to privacy.

You should be able to go online and look up your state and famous cases that ended up in the Supreme Court. For example, Brown v Board of Education (1951) started in Topeka, Kansas and ended up in the Supreme Court of the United States. Another example would be Calvary Chapel Dayton Valley v Steve Sisolak, Governor of Nevada (2020) that started in Nevada and ended up the United States Supreme Court.

Research your court case and write an outline of the case that you will be using to prepare a presentation, which will either be a narrated PowerPoint, a Kaltura Video, or some other format as approved by your instructor.

Be sure to verify the presentation format with your instructor before starting work on this assignment.

Your court case outline should include:

Title: Name of the case

How can a judge ascertain the reliability of the theories presented by any expert? On what grounds does a judge exclude or admit innovative theories and expert witnesses?

Discussion Question 1: Jimmy Madison Case: Expert Witness

In this question we look at expert witnesses and the admissibility of new scientific theories.

In drafting your response, be sure to research the issue of novel scientific evidence and see how the courts have dealt with such evidence.

Jimmy Madison has worked around electrical transformers for over 14 years as an electrician.

He is now suffering from lung cancer and claims that it was caused because of the working environment—exposure to Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs) from the transformers. Jimmy also smokes cigarettes. He sued his employer.

Two expert witnesses were called to prove Jimmy’s claim. The expert witnesses relied on a study using baby mice. They found a possible association between PCB exposure and cancer. The judge however excluded the testimony.

Evaluate possible reasons for the exclusion.

How can a judge ascertain the reliability of the theories presented by any expert? On what grounds does a judge exclude or admit innovative theories and expert witnesses?

Examine the chances that a theory presented by an expert witness will be admitted.

Consider that after being excluded, the evidence or theory proves to be correct through additional research. What are the consequences of such exclusion?

Discussion Question 2: Tania’s Case Against the Apartment Building Owner for Negligence

In this question we will examine the evidentiary concept of remedial measures in the context of a slip and fall case.

Be sure to analyze carefully what evidence would be admissible in this negligence situation.

Tania, who is renting an apartment in Oswald Redbrick Apartments Building, is suing the owner, Oswald, for negligence.

She claims that on June 14, 2005, she tripped on the linoleum installed in the apartment and severely injured her right arm.

As a result, she cannot work because her arm still hurts. Tania says that despite the fact that linoleum was considered defective and dangerous for users and therefore the stores stopped selling it, the owner negligently installed it in the Redbrick Apartments anyway.

In court, Tania states that she has proof against the owner—another resident of the apartment building, Peter, who fell and injured himself on May 13, 2005.

Tania also states that Oswald removed the linoleum on June 20, 2005, and put a carpet in all the apartments in the building—the proof that Oswald is liable for negligence.

Based on the above information, answer the following questions:

1) In your judgment, what will the possible outcome of the case be?

2) What chances does Tania have of winning the case?

3) What arguments can the owner present in his defense?
