[PDF] Dukes, et al. v. Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. - Order Denying Class Certification
Plaintiffs have amassed substantial evidence of discrimination against women that occurred at Wal-Mart stores during the period at issue in this suit. The Supreme Court, however, required Plaintiffs to make a certain showing in order to litigate all of the class members’ claims at once in a single lawsuit, and this Court concludes that Plaintiffs’ newly proposed class continues to suffer from the problems that foreclosed certification of the nationwide class. Accordingly, the Court DENIES Plaintiffs’ Motion for Class Certification, leaving each member of the class to pursue her claims against Wal-Mart individually.
