Justices Curb Class Actions

the supreme court threw out a sweeping sex-discrimination lawsuit against wal-mart stores inc., ruling monday that the 1.6 million women allegedly victimized had too little in common to form a single class of plaintiffs.the case split the court 5-4 along its ideological divide, with justice antonin scalia's majority opinion concluding the allegations against wal-mart were too vague and the evidence too weak to establish the common injury essential to encompass all women employed since 1998 in the roughly 3,400 u.s. wal-mart stores.
