Lecture Notes Dispute Resolution Judicial Resolution of Employment Disputes Courts and Remedies : The remedy that the plaintiff seeks relates back to the purpose and jurisdiction of the courts. Recall that the law tree is rooted in the English legal system. A few notes may be in order. The Magna Carta was signed in 1215. Over the next several hundred years it provided the basis under which the English legal system was developed. This important document had a significant influence upon the drafters of the U.S. Constitution. It was essentially a limitation on John’s powers. The King promised to follow the law in dealing with his subjects. The barons revolted against the King because the King had acted unfairly towards them. The King had raised taxes, lost wars on the continent, alienated the Church and failed to consult with his barons. The Magna Carta permitted free men to have their disputes heard in local courts known as “common pleas”—i.e. ones not heard by the partial King.
