The Supreme Court blocked, 5-4, a class action sex discrimination suit brought against Walmart—a case which potentially involved 1.6 million former and current store employees—because the evidence was too "vague," reports the AP. Vague? 1.6 million women? Hm. The news agency reports that the women who brought the case against Walmart will now be forced to contend with the retail giant on an individual case-by-case basis.
