Win: U.S. Supreme Court Upholds Class-Action Suit Against Tyson Foods

WASHINGTON - Note: Today, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 6-2 in Tyson Foods Inc. v. Bouaphakeo that Tyson Foods workers were entitled to litigate, as a class, their claims for lost wages due to violations of wage and hour laws. The company had argued that the workers should not have been able to join together in a single lawsuit because each worker’s claimed loss was different. Public Citizen served as co-counsel for the workers in the Supreme Court.

This is another news story that makes me wonder whether Scalia was something of an arm-twister. Since he's gone, there's only good news. Or am I being a pollyanna?
