WASHINGTON -- The Supreme Court on Monday blocked a massive sex discrimination lawsuit against Walmart on behalf of women who work there.

The court ruled unanimously that the lawsuit against Walmart Stores Inc. cannot proceed as a class action, reversing a decision by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco. The lawsuit could have involved up to 1.6 million women, with Walmart facing potentially billions of dollars in damages.
