BREAKING: Young and UPS settle pregnancy lawsuit

Young v. UPS is ovah!

Law360 reported this morning that Peggy Young and United Parcel Service have settled their pregnancy discrimination/accommodation case that went to the Supreme Court, resulting in this decision from last March. The Supreme Court had found in Ms. Young's favor for the most part, but remanded the case so that the lower court could make findings applying the Supreme Court legal standard.

UPS had already changed its pregnancy accommodation policy before oral argument, which took place last December. Although the amount of the settlement was not disclosed, Ms. Young's attorney said that the change in policy at UPS was an important factor in the resolution of the case.
