No worries: priorities! And yes, in 1976, Justice White said the answer to “How Will I Know?” is “discriminatory racial intent.”
Replying to @eastierney
I mean, con law was NOT my strongest subj and I'm pretty sure that I was seeing Whitney Houston (rest in power) in Central Park on the morning that this stuff was covered in class but I think I got the jist? Sorry @kenji_yoshino!

Title VII protects lesbian/gay/trans workers, broad understanding of but-for cause, strong reaffirmation of Manhart, sex-plus, stereotyping doctrines. This is really a home run decision. The best Title VII decision we've seen in years.

In a world full of sad news, this is the news that pushed me over the edge yesterday. Jim Jacobs was one of the finest people I have ever known, and I will miss him for the rest of my days.

Co-sign w/r/t @nyulaw and @zoom_us. And thanks to you, @ErinMurphysLaw, for talking to me after your class and before mine about best practices. And thanks most of all to my students, for their engagement and resilience.
Wow. HUGE credit to @nyulaw team for a shockingly seamless transition to @zoom_us and to my awesome 1Ls for rolling with this grand experiment & managing to hold a great class (on a difficult topic to boot!). 😅🙌
