Watson v. Century Technologies, Inc. is a civil action for employment discrimination. A businesswoman is suddenly fired, finding herself the odd woman out in an organization getting younger by the day. Plaintiff Sharon Watson was a respected senior sales executive working in a technology-based sales company, and has been with the company since it started selling beepers over twenty-five years ago. Danielle Khouri, the new face of Century and a rising star in the tech world, was brought in to shake things up. Sharon’s exceptional career comes to an abrupt end when she is fired from her job. A case of age discrimination, or a simple case of parties not seeing eye to eye on the future of a company? Either side can make a compelling case given the exhibits, testimony, and witnesses.

The case series focuses on storytelling as it relates to presenting factual information to judges and juries. Watson is well balanced and can be won by either side, and simple but with evidentiary depth to allow for options of strategy and creativity for those who meet the challenge and see hidden gems in the facts. These cases, by their facts and evidence are meant to inspire the imagination of the students, challenge them, and give them the will and desire to fight for their cause. Watson features true-to-life evidence, documents, and situations, and is professor friendly, with instruction options available in the teaching notes. The case file also includes a CD-ROM containing the exhibits.
