it doesn't have to be this good for walmart

in theory, this decision could turn out to be a disaster for walmart. instead of dealing with the sex discrimination allegations in one big lawsuit, walmart could now face a ton of lawsuits brought individually by those 1.6 million alleged victims. in practice it won't work that way. and the fact that this case is being reported as a big victory of walmart in a sex discrimination case might create the impression that the court has dismissed the discrimination claims on the merits.
