TLP: Too Many Women? Let's Ask Justice Thomas What He Thinks

wal-mart discrimination
I don't know whether Wal-Mart has a case in its challenge to a class-action lawsuit before the U.S. Supreme Court.

CBS News:
The Supreme Court hears arguments today on a sex discrimination suit against Wal-Mart, which could be wind up being the largest in United States history.

The lead lawyer for the plaintiffs says the mega-retailer is essentially saying it's "too big" to be sued. Wal-Mart says it simply doesn't discriminate against women.

The justices will decide if the suit should go forward. If that happens, 500,000 to more than 1.5 million current and former female employees could be included. And if they win, Wal-Mart, the nation's biggest employer, would be forced to pay billions, reports CBS News Chief Legal Correspondent Jan Crawford.
What I do know is that I find it pretty fucking hilarious that Wal-Mart — world's largest purveyor of all kinds of shit people don't need and can't live without — would ever try to make that claim that anything is too big.

Some say he’s half man half fish, others say he’s more of a seventy/thirty split. Either way he’s a fishy bastard.

Please, please, please, please don't go out of business Wal-Mart because that will mean the end to the website People of WalMart...which might lead to the end of Beach Creeps and then the end of Girls in Yoga Pants and then no more White Trash Repairs. A dominoe effect...I'll be left with nothing but the Onion.

walmart never claimed "that anything is too big". According to the article the plaintiff's attorney said that. did you even read the article?! can you even read?!?

Inherent laziness aside, we here at Jr Deputy Accountant are nothing if not fastidious in our research.

"After the parties had conducted extensive discovery and filed copious briefs, the district court heard oral argument. At the hearing, Wal-Mart emphasized the “historic” nature of Plaintiffs’ motion, including the size of the putative class, involving women employees at Wal-Mart’s 3,400 stores in 41 regions. The court acknowledged Wal-Mart’s concerns but noted that, while the class size was large, the issues were not unusual."

There's more, since you're such an advocate of reading. Enjoy.
