Ledbetter v. Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company (1999)

 

Current Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg (R.B.G.) has authored many notable dissents, including her dissent in a gender discrimination case brought by Lilly Ledbetter against the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company in 1999. A lower court had awarded Ledbetter 3.8 million in back pay and damages, reflecting 19 years in which she worked and earned lower pay than male co-workers. In a 5 to 4 vote, the Supreme Court overturned the lower court decision which occasioned Ginsburg historic 2007 dissent.
