On September 25, 2012, a trial level federal court in Northern California denied Wal-Mart’s motion to dismiss a statewide class action suit whose nationwide sibling was defeated by a 5-4 Supreme Court ruling last year.
Judge Charles R. Breyer, of the U.S. District Court, Northern District of California, gave the green light for California women to proceed with their pay and promotion discrimination claim against Wal-Mart and its subsidiary Sam’s Club.
Plaintiffs’ counsel Noreen Farrell, executive director of Equal Rights Advocates, said
The women of Wal-Mart have been waiting for more than a decade for their day in court. Sex discrimination in pay and promotion hurts lives and families. We applaud the decision giving our clients the green light to prove their claims.
