Shocker – U.S. Supreme Court Rules in Favor of Employees!

The U.S. Supreme Court has been decidedly anti-employee and pro-employer ever since Dubya-appointed Justices Roberts and Alito joined the bench. The Supreme Court’s infamous and awful Ledbetter v Goodyear ruling (and Congress’s voting down of the law intended to overturn Ledbetter) seemed to be clarion call of the new conservative majority on the Court, causing many employee rights attorneys to despair.

And now this: the Supreme Court has just issued two rulings IN FAVOR OF EMPLOYEES! To say this comes as a surprise to employee rights attorneys is understatement. I would love to know what the inside story is behind this startling aboutface in the Court’s conservative tack.
