On August 13, 2013, Leonard Segal Presented at a Minnesota Continuing Legal Education Program on the U.S. Supreme Court’s Big New Decisions

On August 13, 2013, Lenny Segal participated in Minnesota CLE’s program entitled “Beyond the Headlines – What EVERY Lawyer Should Know About the U.S. Supreme Court’s Big New Decisions.”  Lenny discussed Vance v. Ball State University, 133 S. Ct. 2434 (2013).  In Vance, the Supreme Court addressed the proper definition of “supervisor” for purposes of employer liability for unlawful harassment under Title VII.  The Court held that an employer may be vicariously liable for an employee’s unlawful harassment only when the employee has the authority to take tangible employment actions against the alleged victim.
