ABSTRACT
The article reports that the U.S. Supreme Court has stopped many pending pay discrimination cases in Ledbetter v. Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. Inc. The court has held in its decision that plaintiffs must file Title VII discrimination complaints within the six-month statue of limitations. Allan King, a shareholder with Littler Mendelson, says the decision's immediate effect will be limiting pending cases because it narrows pay disparities that are actionable.
