The nation’s high court on Monday declined to review a more than $150 million judgment against Wal-Mart and a $203 million judgment against Wells Fargo. The court waited to make a decision in either case pending its action in Tyson Foods. Last month, the court majority ruled against the meat producer.
The company argues that a federal appeals court’s ruling, upholding $2.8 million in money damages awarded to a class of current and formerly hourly workers at an Iowa plant, sanctioned the use of “seriously flawed” procedures many district courts have used to permit certification and adjudication of class actions.
A Tyson Foods employee at a Wisconsin meat processing plant filed a complaint against United Food & Commercial Workers (UFCW) Local 538 officials after the union allegedly threatened to retaliate against him for exercising his rights to refrain from full-dues-paying union membership.
