care about her religion when they first hired her, so the company is not being discriminatory. 2. Megan is a freshman at a local public high school. Her older sister Jenna is a junior at a nearby private high school. Both girls are mad because their schools will not let them join the wrestling team at their respective schools. Each girl sues her school. Who will win and why? Megan will win the case against her school since she attends a public high school. Since it is public, it is run by the government and there is a statute that allows for no discrimination against genders, which allows girls to join sports that are male dominated. However, since Jenna attends a private high school, the school has its own rules and regulations which can state that girls may not be allowed to join the wrestling team. Therefore, Jenna would lose the case.
3. A Georgia state law requires the use of contoured (specially shaped) rear-fender mudguards on trucks and trailers operating within Georgia state lines, even if these trucks are traveling on Interstate highways within the state of Georgia. This requires many truck drivers to stop at the Georgia boundaries as change their mudguards. Several trucking companies sue the state of Georgia claiming its state law violates the commerce clause. Who will win and why ? The state of Georgia will win because they have the right to regulate laws within their state. Since it may be a safety issue, the case will be in their favor causing the truck company to lose. Any passing trucks may be a danger or threat to the state of Georgia, therefore, they can create laws that drivers who pass their highways must follow.
