USA: Wal-Mart Settles Sex Discrimination Suit

Wal-Mart settled a gender discrimination lawsuit from a former named plaintiff in Betty Dukes' class action that sought to certify 1.5 million female employees. Stephanie Odle, of Lubbock, was an original plaintiff in Dukes v. Wal-Mart. The U.S. Supreme Court declined to certify a class of current employees in June 2011 due to insufficient commonality between the plaintiffs…Odle filed a separate class action four months after the Supreme Court decision, claiming female workers face "gender discrimination as a result of specific policies and practices in Wal-Mart's regions located in whole or in part in Texas."…Odle agreed to voluntarily dismiss her claims…, according to a stipulation of dismissal with prejudice…Terms of the settlement are confidential, Wal-Mart spokesman Randy Hargrove said.
