I was  never a Wal-Mart shopper anyway. Target is much more to my liking. And now that the Supreme Court has ruled in favor of big business over women . . . it doesn’t much matter.

Or does it?

This is a big deal. Class actions are crucial for victims of discrimination or other corporate misconduct who may not have the means to bring their own individual lawsuits — including many of the Wal-Mart employees who earn modest wages to begin with. And the ruling by the Supreme Court is particularly disturbing. By limiting class actions that claim widespread corporate misconduct, the Supreme Court could be turning corporations into entities that are too big to be held accountable.

Not good.  What do you think?
