Wisconsin Wal-Mart Class Action Decision

Wisconsin's Court of Appeals recently dealt a blow to class actions in a decision involving Wal-Mart and its alleged failure to pay employees appropriately. The Circuit Court case filed in 2001 put Chicago-based Miner, Barnhill & Galland and Milwaukee-based Murphy & Prachthauser against the mammoth corporate law firm of Foley & Lardner. It seems corporations, e.g. Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce, won this battle with employees losing out. However, I expect this to be heard by the Wisconsin Supreme Court.
