San Jose is the largest city in the San Francisco Bay Area, with almost a million inhabitants. San Jose began in the 18th century as the first town of Spanish California, and retained its political prestige as the first capital of the State of California in 1850. It remained the chief agricultural city of California, retaining its old world charm, until the expansion of Silicon Valley from Palo Alto and Sunnyvale in the 1950s.
These days, major technology firms call San Jose home, including Adobe, Cisco, eBay, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, and Lockheed Martin. As the U.S. center of intellectual property law, San Jose is not lacking in lawyers. In fact, over 4,000 lawyers currently practice in San Jose.

In a recent case, a San Jose City College Biology professor was fired for citing a German study apparently connecting maternal stress with homosexual behavior in males. The fired professor filed suit against the college, claiming that she introduced the study merely to facilitate a discussion of nurture vs. nature as causes for homosexuality. The professor claims her freedom of speech rights were violated because of a strong political sentiment against the theory of environmental causes of homosexuality. On the other hand, the college concluded the study to be “offensive and unscientific.”
