SCOTUS to get Solicitor's view on pregnancy discrimination case

Waiting for the government's views before granting or denying cert. The US Supreme Court today invited the Solicitor General to file a brief expressing the views of the United States in Young v. United Parcel Service. This is to help the Court decide whether to grant certiorari. The issue is whether, and in what circumstances, the Pregnancy Discrimination Act requires an employer that provides work accommodations to non-pregnant employees with work limitations to provide work accommodations to pregnant employees who are “similar in their ability or inability to work.”

There's no deadline for this brief, and the process tends to be slow, so don't hold your breath.
