As faculty advisor to the co-authors of the fact-pattern, I was very proud of our students this year, who selected intricate issues (Does McDonnell Douglas apply to an ADEA claim in the context of a RIF and, if so, what should be the fourth prong test? Can an alien who is working out of visa status seek a damage remedy under ADEA?) and did a masterful job of administering a huge, entirely student-run competition. We had 46 schools competing this year, the highest number ever. Interestingly, the final round came down to two Chicago law schools: Loyola vs. DePaul. Loyola took the honors for best team, but one of the DePaul member won the award for best oral advocate. So the Wagner Cup will reside in Chicago for the year.
A link to the recording of the final round arguments can be found on the competition website.
