The Ledbetter Case

Justice Alito wrote this week that a person who wants to sue his employer under Title VII for discriminatory compensation schemes has to sue within a time that is calculated from when the discriminatory decision was made.

Justice Ginsburg dissenting, wanting to establish a rule that the time limitations began all over again each time the employee received a paycheck that reflected the discriminatory decision.

Who is right? Which rule is better? Why?

Ain't being a lawyer fun?
