Lesson 04 Case Brief Assignment

You must find a case related to the weekly chapter 5&6 (Litigation).  You can pull your case from the book or from the internet as long as you cite the sources.

  • Facts: This should be a quick list of facts, but make sure to include any legally significant facts.
  • Procedural history: These are notes about the journey the case has taken through the court system.
  • Issue presented: What is the legal issue that the court is discussing? Note, there can be more than one issue.
  • Holding: This is the ruling of the court. If the issue presented is a question for the court to answer, then the holding is the answer to that question.
  • Legal reasoning: This is a quick summary of the thought process used by the court to reach their conclusion.
  • Rule of law: If the court applied any rules of law that are important, you want to write that down too.
  • Concurring or dissenting opinions (if any): If your casebook included a concurring or dissenting opinion in your reading, you will need to read it carefully. It is there for a reason.
  • Citation: Required.
