NY Times Piece on Social Framework Evidence in Dukes v. Wal-Mart

Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. concerns employment discrimination as opposed to mass torts, it has the potential to change Rule 23(a)'s class certification standard across the board.  So, for those of you who have been following the case, Adam Liptak has an interesting article in today's New York Times on the evidentiary questions concerning social framework evidence that lies at the heart of the Dukes controversy.

For other commentary on tomorrow's oral argument, here's a link to Sarah Crawford's ACS post
