Pre-US Reports Printing of a Notable Supreme Court Racial Discrimination Case Signed by Justice Kennedy Supreme Court of the United States. [Kennedy, Anthony]. (Slip Opinion) Patterson v McLean Credit Union, Certiorari to the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit. [Washington, DC: Government Printing Office, 1989]. iv, 21, , 31, , 4 pp. Complete. Signature of Justice Kennedy to head of first page. Fine. $500. * This decision concerned a case of racial discrimination at a Virginia credit union, after she lost a promotion to a less-qualified white colleague and was later fired. The case was affirmed in part and reversed in part; this was the first in a series of events that led to the Civil Rights Act of 1991. Justice Kennedy wrote the opinion of the Court. Bench opinions are issued by the U.S. Supreme Court immediately after the announcement of a decision. Slip opinions are issued afterwards. Often incorporating corrections, they are the first printings of a decision intended for wide dissemination and review. After that stage the revised slip opinions are added to the latest paperback volume of U.S. Reports. A year later, that volume is printed in its final, authoritative, hardcover form.
