The Unites States Supreme Court moves right along once it grants a writ of certiorari. Wal-Mart Stores v. Dukes has been set for oral argument on Tuesday, March 29, 2011. We won't have to wait that long before (potentially) receiving some guidance from the current Supreme Court about class action standards. The only uncertainty is whether the Court will limit its analysis to sex discrimination cases or offer more widely applicable guidelines.
