Supreme Court of the United States Vacates $ 7.7 Million Class Action Verdict Against Employer Based On The Court's Decision In Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. v. Dukes

Yesterday, the Supreme Court of the United States summarily disposed of the petition for a writ of certiori filed by Chinese Daily News, Inc., challenging the decision of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals affirming a $7.7 Million class action wage and hour verdict against Chinese Daily News. In a summary disposition, the Supreme Court granted the petition for certiori, vacated the judgment, and remained the case back to the Ninth Circuit for further consideration in light of the Supreme Court's landmark decision in Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. v. Dukes.

We will report further on this development once the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has acted.
