NEW YORK -- Former Wal-Mart Stores Inc (WMT.N) warehouse workers of Cuban origin may pursue a lawsuit accusing the world's largest retailer of discrimination, and of firing them when they complained about their treatment.

Monday's ruling by a federal judge in Chicago came as Wal-Mart awaits a U.S. Supreme Court ruling on whether female workers can continue pursuing what would be the largest class-action gender bias case in history against the company.
