business news in context, analysis with attitude

A Florida judge has denied a request to give class action status to a lawsuit against Wal-Mart charging that it forced employees to work overtime without compensation.

The plaintiff lawyers wanted to include up to 230,000 Wal-Mart employees in Florida, but the judge said that it would be an enormous and unreasonable burden on the state court system.
