Wal-Mart discriminated against female employees in its 451 Texas stores, according to a class action lawsuit filed Friday. Four months ago, the Supreme Court threw out a nationwide class action suit against the world's largest retailer, on the grounds that all of the store's 1.5 million female employees were too diverse to constitute a class. The new lawsuit makes a more modest claim to class status: over 45,000 former and current employees of Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., in Texas.
