Massachusetts Woman Files Class-Action Lawsuit Accusing Wal-Mart of Wrongly Denying Employee Benefits for Same-Sex Spouses

A Massachusetts woman filed a class-action lawsuit on July 14, 2015 accusing Wal-Mart of wrongly denying employee benefits for same-sex spouses. Jacqueline Cote says Wal-Mart repeatedly denied medical insurance for her wife before 2014, when the company started offering benefits for same-sex spouses. The couple incurred at least $150,000 in medical costs after Cote's wife, Dee Smithson, was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2012. The lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Boston seeks damages for the couple and for any other Wal-Mart employees who weren't offered insurance for their same-sex spouses. It asks for money to cover out-of-pocket medical costs and for other punitive damages.
