MODULE 3 Writing Assignment: You must do your own work and use Turnitin. I will not accept any paper that has 25% or more “similarity.” See Syllabus. I will also not accept papers that fail to properly cite to sources.
Like all papers you’ll submit, formatting is: 1” margins all around, double-spaced, Times New Roman, 12-point font. No headers, extra spaces between paragraphs – none of the little tricks that take up space.
There is a 3-page minimum, which I equate to an “average” score, or a 3. If you want a better score, then do more than the minimum required work. I can tell when a student has done the work and when they have waited until the last minute to throw something together. Don’t be in that latter group.
You must answer the following three questions:
Interstate commerce refers to business transactions between individuals or businesses from two or more states. You’ve learned that Congress uses interstate commerce as a tool to force businesses to comply with the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Go to:
to read, in depth, a case referenced in your book: The Heart of Atlanta Motel v. The United States.

Private clubs are exempt from the Civil Rights Act. Go to:
Tell me what the main arguments are for both the Plaintiff and the Defendant. Tell me how the court ruled and why.
Nevada Revised Statute 651.065 says “….is not unlawful and is not a ground for a civil action for any place of public accommodation to offer differential pricing, discounted pricing or special offers based on sex to promote or market the place of public accommodation.”
Under Nevada law a “place of public accommodation” includes a nightclub, which are very popular in Las Vegas.
So, basically, Nevada says it is legal to intentionally discriminate against men when it comes to charging entry fees to nightclubs. In other words, it is legally permissible for a nightclub to charge men a $40 entry fee but to allow women to enter for free. That decision is based solely on gender.
Is Nevada’s law actually legal? Does it conflict with a more superior law? If so, which one? What are your personal thoughts on this?
