Mansourian v. Regents of the Univ. of Calif. (9th Cir. - Feb. 8, 2010)

Most people know what Title Nine entails. At least generally. So much so that even the women's apparel manufacturer with that name gets a nod in Judge Berzon's published opinion. (Which, I might add, would be a good way to create future judicial income through paid product placement mentions.)

But to see how a Title Nine case actually progresses, as well as for a pretty good history of women's sports at U.C. Davis, check this one out.

This is a darn solid pro-plaintiff opinion. Not many caveats. Sure, we're viewing all inferences in favor of the non-moving party (here, the plaintiffs). But one also gets a keen sense that's also the side on which some very strong preferences reside.

So take a look. If only to see how women's wrestling fares up in Davis.
