Professor Angela Morrison Writes Article for Hamilton and Griffin on Rights, Featured on SCOTUSblog

Angela Morrison is a Visiting Assistant Professor at the William S. Boyd School of Law.

On Jan. 17, her article, "Avoiding the Merits: The Court Hears Argument in Mach Mining, LLC, v. EEOC.," was published on the Hamilton and Griffin on Rights blog, co-created by Boyd's Professor Leslie Griffin. On Jan. 19, Professor Morrison's guest blog post was mentioned in the SCOTUSblog Monday round-up.

Her article reads, "Too often, individuals against whom employers have discriminated are left without remedy because of protracted litigation over conciliation. Unfortunately, this week’s oral argument suggests that this will not change and fits with the Court’s overall trend of putting roadblocks in the path to remedy for victims of corporate wrong-doing. As a result, employers will be able to continue to avoid or delay decisions on the merits for years."

Professor Morrison graduated from the Boyd School of Law where she was the editor-in-chief of the Nevada Law Journal and was a student attorney in the Immigration Clinic. Professor Morrison teaches in the Immigration Clinic and Employment Discrimination.
