Today, June 20, 2011, The Supreme Court ruled for Wal-Mart Stores Inc in the largest sex-discrimination lawsuit ever, overturning a decision that gave class-action status for female employees seeking billions of dollars.

The justices overturned a U.S. appeals court ruling that more than a million female employees nationwide could join together in the lawsuit accusing Wal-Mart of paying women less and giving them fewer promotions.

Justice Antonin Scalia who was born on March 11, 1936  said for the court majority that the certification of the class was not consistent with a federal rule, and the back pay claims were also improperly certified.

On March 11 of this year, Antonin Scalia turned 75 and Uranus entered Aries.
