Sexual Harassment

Cases, Case Studies, and Commentary

Paul I. Weizer

It is not always clear what actually constitutes «sexual harassment» or how it differs from other types of discrimination based on gender. Often, what is thought of as sexual harassment by one person might be considered simply rude or immature behavior by another. While sexual harassment is a major issue in American workplaces and schools, there is no bona fide consensus as to what sexual harassment really is.
This book is designed to bring together material on an issue that is currently troubling most workplaces and schools in the United States: the problem of how to deal with a distressing increase in sexual harassment claims in all areas of American life. It does not attempt to answer all of the questions of how best to prevent sexual harassment while preserving the rights of the accused – no book can provide such answers; rather, it is designed to provide readers with a variety of material to begin the journey of discovering these answers for themselves.

The Opinions of Justice Antonin Scalia

The Caustic Conservative

Paul I. Weizer

Judicial opinions written by justices of the United States Supreme Court are readily available, yet few Americans will ever examine the full substance of a Court opinion. Students, particularly undergraduate students with no real expertise (or interest) in the law, can find reading opinions an overwhelming and laborious process.
The opinions of Justice Scalia are a different matter. Scalia is often sarcastic, smug, and self-assured. He does not hesitate to take his colleagues to task when he feels they are wrong and does not mind stooping to ridicule and personal attack when it serves his point. In short, whether a reader agrees or disagrees with the points that Scalia seeks to make through these opinions, they are not boring. The layperson as well as the student of government, political science, and law will find the words of Justice Scalia well worth reading. Teachers will find these opinions useful for stimulating class discussions at every level.
