Importance of class action lawsuits

Great article in Slate about the Wal-Mart discrimination lawsuit. Class action lawsuits are an important vehicle for individual workers to band together to achieve justice. Currently, some employment and consumer contracts ask individuals to waive their right to participate in a class action case. In the Maryland General Assembly, House Bill 729 would make sure that individuals still have the right to participate in class actions. The bill passed the House and was just heard in the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee. Call your Senators and ask them to support HB 729! And keep following the Wal-Mart case.
