Wal-Mart Doesn’t Have to Face Texas Women’s Bias Class Action

Wal-Mart Stores Inc., the world’s largest retailer, doesn’t have to face class-action gender-discrimination claims in a federal court lawsuit in Texas, a judge ruled.

Wal-Mart was accused in the lawsuit of discriminating against women in pay and promotions in the company’s Texas region, which included some stores in neighboring states. The suit sought to represent all women hourly and salaried workers, below store managers, employed by Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club in the region.
