In the Precedent section, select cases that support your company’s position in terms of employment discrimination or unlawful termination. Justify why they support its case. Select cases that support your company’s position in terms of contract disputes. Justify why they support its case. In the Facts to be Determined section, determine any facts that will help you better analyze your company’s position. In other words, what questions do you need answered before you can proceed?

- SHORT ANSWERS (e.g., “Yes, Lawson breached the non-disclosure agreement.” (or “No.”))
- LEGAL ANALYSIS (case law and statutes that relate to the legal questions presented and that have facts similar to the facts in the class scenario — briefly explain the facts of the cases selected, what legal question the case resolves, and why it applies to the class scenario)
- FACTS TO BE DETERMINED (based on the case law presented, what additional facts, if true, might alter the predicted outcome of the litigation, e.g., “Did the Company have actual knowledge of Lawson’s pregnancy? Were all other junior secretaries terminated, or were they offered other positions in the company?) be sure to explain how the facts, if true, might impact the outcome of the litigation.
