Select an environmental justice (EJ) court case from the list below. For the case you select, formulate an opinion concerning the judge's ruling. The completed EJ case evaluation must include separate sections, labeled, for the following information:

(1) detailed background history of the EJ case (15 points)

(2) identification of the environmental law or policy cited in the case (15 points)

(3) identification of the scope and specific requirements of the law in the case (10 points)

(4) description of the position and arguments of the plaintiff(s) (10 points)

(5) description of the position and arguments of the defendant(s) (10 points)

(6) description of the final decision of the judge and the justification for the decision (20 points)

(7) statement of whether you agree or disagree with the decision (support your response with specific legal examples and information you found in your research (5 points)

Additionally,

(8) your paper should follow the above instructions and be 8-10 pages in length, double-spaced, excluding the references page (10 points), and

(9) your paper must be written in appropriate technical style and contain full citations of all sources used in APA format (5 points)


 

This analysis should be written in your own words, not simply paraphased from legal databases. Extensive quotes will not count toward the required length of the paper and should be avoided. The point is to read the case histories and be able to articulate the key issues and decisions.
