You may recall that way back in February of 2007, the Ninth Circuit issued a decision upholding class certification of all women who worked for Wal-Mart or Sam's Club against the parent company for gender discrimination in promotions. The court withdrew that opinion and issued a new one in December of 2007. We've blogged about the certification and related issues here, here, here, here, and here.
Shortly after the new opinion was issued, Wal-Mart filed a petition for rehearing en banc, which was finally granted last Friday. Howard Bashman has blogged about it and included a bunch of great links--you have to scroll down a little to see the entry.
When the briefs are filed and the matter set for argument, we'll let you know.
