Final Paper

Select one of the cases below. Each is a precedent-setting U.S. Supreme Court case. Each also presents

an opportunity to really dive into a specific BUS law issue. After reviewing the case opinion and any

outside research you’d like to cultivate, complete a paper in which you discuss the case and argue

whether the Court ‘got it wrong’ or ‘got it right’. Additionally, offer a discussion of the resulting impact

of the case, if any. I’ve offered a sample structure below. You are not required to follow this structure.
