    Another example of public school Administrative snakes violating public trust. This disease is running rampant.

  2. Wow, what a waste of money, that is an incredible amount to spend. Hopefully they dramatically lowered the settlement amount, or else this was a complete waste.

  3. Ouch, that is an expensive lawsuit – hopefully their investment saved on the verdict.

  4. This is a sad reality, unfortunately, if a government entity hires employees with no aspiration to save money, pride can cause major issues and cost the govm’t a lot of money.

    I wonder if Melissa had those same mental evaluation

    WAY TO GO MELISSA!!!. I know there are some great police officers out there, but it’s the idiots who abuse their power (the power in their own minds) that make it hard to trust a cop!!!!!!. Again WAY TO GO MELISSA, u fought hard and long against a “mans” world . But u proved ur right,, L.A.P.D. needs to take a long hard look at some of these officers and “clean” their house!!!! Maybe if they did physcological (sp) testing BEFORE they were allowed to become cops , these type of things would not happen… But if they did test them then it’s time for L.A.P.D. to get a NEW DR. who doing the tests.” Way To go Girl U Rock!!!! ,

  1. This is great for the working man or woman, surely?

  2. Wow, that is a big settlement. It’s amazing some of the bankers salaries, however, it is good that people are standing up for this employee.

  3. Phoenix1962 says:

    It is about time that Chase gets busted for something since they are constantly pay this one off and that one off to keep their dirty laundry a secret!

One response to “Dukes v. Wal-Mart: 9th Circuit Upholds Class Certification in $11 Billion Sexual Discrimination Case”

  1. I’ve been following the Dukes v Wal-Mart case and while the plaintiffs have indeed won at the federal court level and court of appeals — the deliberation in the Supreme Court whether or not the class action lawsuit should proceed is going to be a toss-up. From what I’ve read, since most justices are male, many found the lawsuit to be too encompassing. But I also think that given how the numbers about women at work in Walmart show disparity (ex. 93 percent of all cashiers are women but they made less than their male counterparts which is $13,800 for women to $14,500 for men in the same position), the class action lawsuit should proceed.
