9th Circuit Court of Appeals Affirms Enormous Class Action Against Wal-Mart

In Dukes v. Wal-Mart, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco upheld a District Court decision certifying a nationwide class consisting of all women who have worked at Wal-Mart since the end of 1998.

According to the ABA Journal, this is the largest class action suit ever, consisting of over one million plaintiffs.

As noted by the Marquette Law School Faculty Blog, the dissent by Chief Judge Alex Kozinski sets up a Petition for Certiorari, and the case may be headed for the United States Supreme Court.
