The plaintiffs in the discrimination case against Walmart say they are not giving up their fight against the retail giant, despite suffering a major loss Monday. The Supreme Court ruled 1.5 million female former employees did not have enough in common for a class-action lawsuit. But the decision did not specifically say anything about the case’s merits, giving plaintiffs hope to pursue further litigation. “Instead of one case, this case will be splintered into many pieces... So we could end up with some cases framed store by store, or region by region,” said Jeffrey Sellers, a lawyer for the plaintiffs. The case has been viewed as groundbreaking for the business community and could set a whole new precedent for workers’ rights.
