Walmart Statement Regarding Supreme Court Ruling in Dukes Case
BENTONVILLE, Ark., June 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
"We are pleased with today's ruling and believe the Court made the right decision. Walmart has had strong policies against discrimination for many years. The Court today unanimously rejected class certification and, as the majority made clear, the plaintiffs' claims were worlds away from showing a companywide discriminatory pay and promotion policy.
"By reversing the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals decision, the majority effectively ends this class action lawsuit.
"Walmart has a long history of providing advancement opportunities for our female associates and will continue its efforts to build a robust pipeline of future female leaders."
--Gisel Ruiz, Executive Vice President, People, Walmart U.S.
