AT&T v Hulteen post-argument brief on Ledbetter Act's effect on Pregnancy Discrimination Act
February 13, 2009 by Ross Runkel at LawMemo

AT&T v. Hulteen was argued at the US Supreme Court on December 10, 2008. [Details]
The issue involves the retroactive application of the Pregnancy Discrimination Act.

What effect will the Lilly Ledbetter Act have on this?

The employees in the Hulteen case have filed a new brief. [Here]

The basic arguments:

  • The Lilly Ledbetter Act applies here.
  • The employees' claims are timely, so retroactive application is unnecessary.
  • The Supreme Court should either uphold the employees in light of the Ledbetter Statute, or remand to the 9th Circuit to figure out what to do.

My bet: A remand to the 9th Circuit.
