TLP: Too Many Women? Let's Ask Justice Thomas What He Thinks
I don't know whether Wal-Mart has a case in its challenge to a class-action lawsuit before the U.S. Supreme Court.
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.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.
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.
