A federal district judge in California Tuesday certified a class of 1.6 million women in a class-action sex discrimination suit against Wal-Mart. The suit alleges that Wal-Mart discriminated against women employees in pay, promotions and training, and retaliated against those who complained. Reuters has the full story. The plaintiffs' attorneys have this press release and their pleadings in the case.
