July 4, 2011
Pullman & Comley Labor and Employment attorney Jonathan B. Orleans was quoted in an article about the U.S. Supreme Court's rejection of the Wal-Mart gender discrimination suit. The article notes that while the decision may impede large class actions, it remains possible that such claims "could succeed on a smaller scale."
According to Jon, “One of the things open to plaintiffs is the idea of smaller class actions. So, you may see more class action employment litigation on a state-by-state, region by region or store by store basis."
