Richards v. Johnson & Johnson, Inc., 2009 WL 1562952 (D.N.J., June 2, 2009) – The U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey has narrowly construed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009 as extending workers’ time to sue only for claims based upon pay bias, and not other acts of discrimination. The court reiterated, however, that time-barred acts of discrimination may still be introduced as evidence in a proceeding under any other law.
