Administrative Appeal Process
Joe should file his case in a federal Court System.
Joe’s decision to appeal on the ground of procedural due process and equal protection clauses falls under constitution law jurisdiction. The federal court system has the responsibility to handle cases dealing with constitutionality of the law. Constitutional law encompasses any law or right that originates from the United States Constitution. Failure to observe due process or violation of equal rights violates the fundamental rights protected by United Constitution (Stephens and Scheb, 2011). The Fifth and the Fourteen Amendments of the United States Constitution limit the power of the federal and state governments to discriminate.
