WASHINGTON, DC (AP) — The Supreme Court has ruled for Walmart in its fight to block a massive sex discrimination lawsuit on behalf of women who work there.

The court ruled unanimously Monday that the lawsuit against Walmart Stores Inc. cannot proceed as a class action, reversing a decision by the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco. The lawsuit could have involved up to 1.6 million women, with Wal-Mart facing potentially billions of dollars in damages.

Now, the handful of women who brought the lawsuit may pursue their claims on their own, with much less money at stake and less pressure on Walmart to settle.
