Wal-Mart Class Action Goes to US Supreme Court

29 Mar 2011 10:13 PM | Deleted user
The very large Wal-Mart class action lawsuit is going to the US Supreme Court for review this week.  See CBS news report. The class involves 500,000 to 1.6 million potential plaintiffs. The suit alleges discrimination against women. The suit was initially filed ten years ago in California.  It was most recently the subject of an appeal at the federal Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in California.  Wal-Mart claims the class involves too many women in too many different positions at Wal-Mart.  If the members of the class are too different, then the class action fails.  The case is said to be the largest employment discrimination case ever.   Betty Dukes, Et Al v.
