After working her entire career at a Denver law school, Lucy Marsh discovered that she was one of the lowest paid professors in the school, despite being one of the most experienced. As a result, she filed a lawsuit against the school, which led to “years of litigation against the University of Denver's Sturm College of Law.” Fortunately for Marsh, the lawsuit finally ended on Thursday with a $2.6 million settlement for not only Marsh but for six other women as well.

AT&T's mobile phone subsidiary, AT&T Mobility, recently came under fire after being accused of pregnancy discrimination. In response to the alleged discrimination, two women filed a federal lawsuit that officially accused AT&T mobility of “firing them for pregnancy-related absences in violation of federal anti-discrimination laws.” According to the plaintiffs, Katia Hills and Cynthia Allen, the company's “attendance policy, which assigns point-based demerits for late arrivals, early departures, and absences, discriminates against pregnant women.” It turns out, both Hills and Allen were terminated from their positions “after accruing points for missing work because of pregnancy-related medical care, and, in one plaintiff's case, her infant son's emergency medical needs as well.”
