This Note will identify the considerable changes and varying interpretations of the MHRA over the last decade, analyze the optimal balance between the competing, important interests, and determine any potential need for amendment, including consideration of the various proposals currently before the legislature. Part 11 thus analyzes the four major areas of difficulty in the adjudication of MHRA claims in the last decade, including jury trials, available damages, the burden of proof, and individual liability. Next, Part III recognizes the most recent developments under the MHRA. And lastly, Part IV involves a two-part discussion beginning with the policy and effect behind each area of difficulty, and it concludes with an analysis of the Act as a whole, including its place among other relevant discrimination statutes such as Title VII.
