Supreme Court nixes class action suit against Wal-Mart 

Every year the Supreme Court reverses by a 9-0 vote multiple cases decided by left wing judges on the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, based in San Francisco. Today the Court issued a decision reversing the Ninth Circuit on a big one, Dukes v. Wal-Mart, in which six female employees brought a class action on behalf of all female employees and former employees of America’s largest private sector employer. No dice, said the Court. There was a partial dissent by four justices, as the Wall Street Journal reports, but overall this seems a huge rebuke of the class action lawsuit industry.
