The Supreme Court released three opinions yesterday, two of which sided with workers in discrimination cases.

The first was Gomez-Perez v. Potter (opinion) in which the court held that Section 29 U.S.C. 633a(a) protects a worker’s right to be safe from retaliation after filing an age discrimination claim.

The Court held similarly in CBOCS West v. Humphries (opinion) that 42 U.S.C. 1981 includes retaliation protection for race discrimination claims.

The last opinion of the day was Riley v. Kennedy. The Court ruled on a procedural voting law passed in Alabama in 1985.
