Many legal disputes turn on some form of the question, Why did they do that? Using examples involving employment discrimination, political redistricting, jury selection and computer code theft, we demonstrate that a novel analytical framework connects these diverse cases. When this framework is applied to pay discrimination cases, it yields information that is more relevant to the issues in dispute than does the traditional framework.
