Wal-Mart wins Supreme Court discrimination suit

A 10-year case involving gender-bias comes to a close.

Today the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Wal-Mart in Wal-Mart v. Dukes, which concerned 1 million female workers who attempted to form a class to sue the retail giant for discrimination at Sam’s Club and Wal-Mart stores around the country.

According to Bloomberg, this ruling is likely to mean new limits on class-action lawsuits.
