Wal-Mart gender discrimination case will proceed

California judge will let post-Dukes amended case move forward

The women who sued Wal-Mart Stores Inc. for sex discrimination in the epic 2011 Supreme Court case Dukes v. Wal-Mart Stores aren’t giving up the fight.

In 2001, a group of women who worked for Wal-Mart sued their employer for gender bias, claiming the world’s largest retailer denied pay raises and promotions to women. The case was finally resolved on June 20, 2011, when the Supreme Court found that the proposed class of 1.5 million women in different jobs nationwide and with different supervisors didn’t have enough in common to constitute a single class.
