validation requires a unique email (case-insensitive)

I didn't see what this test was supposed to be doing - I could have set user.email = "random@email.com" and the test will still pass. What does it have to do with case sensitivity that distinguishes from the test above it?

Wouldn't it be a more meaningful test if it were to create another user instance with the same email address in uppercase and assert that it is an invalid user, due to the case-insensitive validation?
