Dukes Back at Work In the middle of the nation's increasingly heated fight over taxes, spending and budgets, Betty Dukes went back to her job as a Wal-Mart greeter in Pittsburg, Calif., The Philadelphia Enquirer reported April 26. The High Court is deciding to allow Dukes' sex-discrimination case--the largest of its kind in U.S. history--to go forward as a class action covering as many as 1.6 million workers. Dukes said she was happy to be back at work, had always enjoyed her job and was looking forward to a resolution of the lawsuit. On April 28, the Supreme Court put a chill on class-action expectations when it said a customer could not file such a suit against AT&T Mobile after signing a contract with the company saying she could not do so. A law professor called the ruling "one of the most important and favorable cases for businesses in a very long time," The New York Times reported April 28. Would you like to Comment but not sure how?
