1.  Let’s suppose that you are a “hot-shot” young attorney!  You get a call at 2:30 AM on Monday from Bubby Golonka, Dean of the College of Animal Husbandry of Cheaton Hall University, who informs you that he has just been “let go.”  Dean Golonka has two or three specific questions:

1.  Can they “do this to me?” 

2.  Can I do anything about it?

3.  What can I expect to “get out of this deal?”

Construct a nice “memorandum” to your senior partner outlining your preliminary response to the issues raised in these three questions. 

Your senior partner has not asked you to discuss any underlying rules or laws. 

Rather, she has only asked you to RAISE QUESTIONS that will need to be considered……

Please list all questions you can come up with…. (I have come up with five or six)…

2. Freddy Glotz is claiming that the owner of the store where he works has terminated him because he wore a “TRUMP 2024” hat to the work room.

Why or why not???

Write a nice, concise, legal memo answering this question, citing any relevant cases or precedents.
