Court gives women in Wal-Mart class action suit time to file individual lawsuits
New York City — The women who were part of the large class action lawsuit against Wal-Mart Stores have been given until Oct. 28 to file individual lawsuits against the company, a U.S. judge ruled, Reuters reported.
The women, who claim the retailer denied them pay raises and promotions because of gender bias, are regrouping after the U.S. Supreme Court dismantled a class of up to 1.5 million current and former Wal-Mart workers in June.
Attorneys for the women are expected to try to fashion smaller class actions as the litigation moves forward.
"The court agreed with us that there needed to be a consistent, common date that applies to all claims of former class members," said plaintiff attorney Jocelyn Larkin.
"This is a fair approach that is very similar to what we proposed," Wal-Mart attorney Theodore Boutrous Jr. said.
