Discuss how the majority distinguished Vicker’s claim from the plaintiff in the Price-Waterhouse  case. The majority distinguished Vicker’s claim from the plaintiff in the Price-Waterhouse case as follows: All  defendants-Apelles filed a joint motion for judgment on the pleadings pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil  Procedure 12(c) on or about January 21, 2004. On May 5, 2004, the district court granted defendants- appellees' motion on the federal claims pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 12(c) and declined to  exercise supplemental jurisdiction over Vickers' state law claims. The district court granted the motion  based on the fact that Title VII does not protect individuals from discrimination based on sexual orientation  and that Supreme Court and Sixth Circuit case law do not recognize Vickers' claims of harassment based  on being perceived as homosexual as violations of Title VII. Vickers filed a timely notice of appeal.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
