Title VII Time Limit

The Supreme Court read the 180-day filing deadline in Title VII very narrowly in Ledbetter v. Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. (May 29, 2007), barring a plaintiff's pay discrimination claim because the pay decisions were made before the cutoff, even though she continued to receive lower pay.

In an editorial, the New York Times urges Congress to amend the statute to undo this interpretation. Injustice 5, Justice 4, New York Times, May 31, 2007.
