Research one CIVIL case that relates to an issue that we’ve studied in class (i.e. contracts, torts, employment) that the U.S. Supreme Court or state Supreme Court has written a decision on within the last 5 years where you will answer the following questions:
What was the name of the case?*
Who were the parties?*
Briefly discuss what the facts of the case the the decision made by the Court.

Why do you think the Court chose to hear this particular case that you chose, given the large number of writs of certiorari the Court receives each term?
