Patterson v. McLean Credit Union (1989) (Racial discrimination)

Slip Opinion of the United States Supreme Court of a Notable Supreme Court Racial Discrimination Case Signed by Justice Kennedy Supreme Court of the United States. [Kennedy, Anthony]. 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, [1], 31, [1], 4 pp. Octavo. Stapled wrappers. Signature of Justice Kennedy on cover page. Fine. $400. * 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. A U.S. Supreme Court opinion is disseminated through a four-step process. The first is a bench opinion, which is issued on the day the Court announces a decision. A slip opinion, which often incorporates revisions, is issued a few days afterwards. With the addition of an index and other features, such as a table, an opinion is issued later as a softcover Preliminary Print designated as a Part. Over time, it is joined with other parts to make up a preliminary softcover United States Reports volume. A few years later, the opinion, after a final round of editing and indexing, is printed in its final, official, form in the hardcover United States Reports.
