Wal-Mart seeks end to refiled gender-bias lawsuit [USA]

Women who refiled a gender discrimination lawsuit against Wal-Mart Stores Inc have failed to come to grips with the landmark Supreme Court decision that ended their nationwide class action against the company, Wal-Mart argued in a court filing. Plaintiffs alleging the world's largest retailer denied them pay raises and promotions because of their gender are regrouping after the high court last year dismantled a class of up to 1.5 million current and former Wal-Mart workers. They filed a reformulated lawsuit against Wal-Mart…saying they were confining their allegations to California…But in a motion to dismiss filed late on Monday, Wal-Mart said the smaller proposed class action actually seeks to cover all women who were employed at any Walmart in any region that included a California store.
