This week the blog will publish a multi-part online symposium on United States v. Texas, a challenge by Texas and twenty-five states to the Obama administration's deferred-action policy for immigration. Contributions to this special feature, as well as an “explainer” by this blog's Lyle Denniston, are available here.

Ketterer v. Yellow Transportation, Inc.

Petition for certiorari denied on October 1, 2012
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
11-1361 5th Cir. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2012

Issue: Whether, when co-workers harass an employee who engaged in protected conduct on behalf of minority employees, an employer can be liable under Title VII’s broad antiretaliation provision, 42 U.S.C. § 2000e- 3(a), when it knew or should have known about the harassment yet tolerated it by failing to take action (as nearly all the circuits have held) or must the coworker harassment also have been “in furtherance of the employer’s business” (as only the Fifth Circuit has held).
