SAN FRANCISCO -- A U.S. judge on Friday said he was "seriously concerned" about whether women led by a Pittsburgh resident who are suing Walmart Stores had enough evidence to move forward with their refiled gender discrimination lawsuit.

Plaintiffs alleging the world's largest retailer denied them pay raises and promotions because of their gender, including former Bay Area Walmart worker Betty Dukes, are trying to regroup after the U.S. Supreme Court last year dismantled a class of up to 1.5 million current and former Walmart workers.
