Supreme Court justices ask: How can you determine damages for each woman in the class-action suit against Wal-Mart? Some 1.5 million women are suing Wal-Mart on sex-discrimination claims.
On Tuesday, the Supreme Court will decide whether 1.5 million women can form a 'class' that faced the same injury – in this case, gender-based discrimination by Wal-Mart – or not.
The Supreme Court said Monday it will consider whether a class-action suit filed against Wal-Mart, representing 1.5 million former and current female employees, should be allowed to proceed.
Wal-Mart faces what would be the largest class-action employment lawsuit in history over claims of gender bias. It has asked the Supreme Court to intervene.
