Bostock v. Clayton County, Georgia and Altitude Express, Inc. v. Zarda (Consolidated)
Did employers violate Title VII’s prohibition against discrimination “because of sex” when they fired employees because of the employees’ sexual orientation?
In 2012, during the Obama Administration, Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano announced the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA). Through the program the government granted a temporary, but renewable, pardon from deportation to young people who were present in the United States without authorization and who met specified criteria. In 2017, the Trump Administration withdrew DACA arguing that it lacked authority to maintain DACA because the executive branch had illegally overstepped its power when it first started the program in 2012.View - Case
