DANG… THAT DIDN’T TAKE LONG…

To hell with appeals and district courts. Walmart need to squash the Dukes bug as quickly as it can lest it actually be held responsible for its alleged reprehensible behavior in a court of law. No, Walmart believes in going right to the Supremes. From Reuters:
The world's largest retailer has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to halt a mammoth sex-discrimination case brought by its women workers, according to a Wednesday court filing. Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is appealing an April ruling that authorized the class action, which could include more than 1 million women. Wal-Mart allegedly practiced widespread discrimination in its pay and promotion practices. A divided 9th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals had allowed the lawsuit to proceed, saying mere size should not be a reason for dismissing the case. The litigation could involve billions of dollars in damages and has been described as the largest sex-discrimination class action
Heavy emphasis on the billions of dollars. Jeff Hess: Have Coffee Will Write.
