I received an email from Credo/Working Assets, a political group, this week asking me to call Sen. Feinstein & urge her to support HR 2831, the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. I’d never heard of this bill before, so I asked LB about it. Then google helped me read even more, & what usually happens did happen—I became frustrated. Most of the time when I hear that the statute of limitations has run out on an issue, I wonder what’s the point of having a time constraint. I realize that witnesses die, minds fade, but whenever possible, shouldn’t we examine past events when a citizen claims to have been wronged?
So to all your fine legal minds on this blog, what’s the fallacy in my thinking? Are you going to tell me ignorance truly is bliss & that Lilly would have been better off not knowing her rights?
