In this lecture, I explore the intersection of disparate impact analysis and the Equal Protection Clause in Ricci v. DeStefano. As well I discuss the Ledbetter opinion, and the resulting Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. I also provide a brief introduction to the ADA and sexual harassment law.
I’d like to note that I gave this lecture the night before Justice Stevens announced his retirement, and I did give my picks about who would replace JPS. Though, I was off, and predicted JPS make the announcement step at the end of April.
