2. Research four (4) actual legal cases dealing with the issue you selected. Once you identify four cases, report on: 1) Who were the parties to the lawsuit? How were they related? 2) What was the nature of the issue in the suit? How is it related to your issue? 3) How was the issue decided, and why? 4) What precedent (if any) did the case set for future litigation? and 5) Did the case leave any questions unanswered with respect to the issue at hand? Each case report should be ~250 words. Case summaries and opinions can be found in our library, and elsewhere online at no cost. Although you may choose any cases you like which are relevant to your issue, it would be prudent to choose cases that are as recent as possible, and of a fairly consequential nature. For this reason, you should choose cases litigated in the federal court system, unless there is a compelling reason for an alternative.
