ABSTRACT
On May 29, 2007, the United States Supreme Court announced its decision in Ledbetter v. Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co., Inc. In a 5-4 decision the Court determined that a party who sues regarding a pay discrimination claim must file the EEOC claim within 180 days of the pay decision being made by management. Prior Court precedent held that each separate pay check was a new occurrence of discrimination. Is the Supreme Court's political ideology the basis of the decision or is prior precedent and sound legal reasoning the basis?
