CRJ335 – Prisoner’s Rights

Case Study Assignment 4

Due: 11:59 pm Sunday of Unit 5.

A case study brief includes a summary of the facts; identification of the legal issue; and a summary of the
holding of the court. The holding is the essential part of the decision and the rationale behind the decision.
The case study brief must be your summary of the facts and holding. A guide to writing a case study brief
can be found under the Course Information Section in a PDF file.

The case for this week is:
Giraldo v. California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation
No. A119046

The paper shall be in APA format, typed in 12pt. font Times New Roman, and shall not have been turned
in previously to any other instructor for any other course or assignment. Paper length is 2-3 pages not to
include the cover page or bibliography. It is to be submitted as a Microsoft Word Document. The
case study shall be an individual effort and not a group project. Since criminal justice is a social science,
the writing requirements of the American Psychological Association, otherwise known as the APA, will
be in effect for the research paper assignment.

Please refer to page two for the grading rubric

Students: Be sure to read the criteria, by which your paper will be evaluated, before you write,

and again after you write.
