9th Circuit Shifts Stance on Wal-Mart Class Suit

     (CN) – The 9th Circuit on Friday remanded Wal-Mart Stores Inc. v. Dukes, the nation’s largest ever proposed class action, back to the San Francisco court where the case began more than a decade ago.
     In June, the U.S. Supreme Court reversed the 9th Circuit’s certification of a class of some 1.6 million women who claimed they had been discriminated against while employed by Wal-Mart.
     The high court voted 5-4 in landmark ruling that the plaintiffs did not have enough in common to justify class certification.
