In the 30th anniversary year of the federal Pregnancy Discrimination Act, the "second generation of pregnancy discrimination" has arrived at the U.S. Supreme Court, say some civil rights and women's rights lawyers. The four women at the center of AT&T v. Hulteen entered the work force and took maternity leaves before the PDA was enacted. The case, which will be argued on Dec. 10, could affect thousands of female workers, retired or about to retire, as well as company pension plans.
