Plaintiffs: Class could include more than 1.5 million current and former female employees at one or more of Wal-Mart's 3,400 stores in 41 regions since 1998

Charges: Women employed by Wal-Mart are paid less than men in comparable positions, despite having higher performance ratings and greater seniority; and they receive fewer—and wait longer for—promotions to in-store management positions than do men

What they want: Class-wide injunctive and declaratory relief, lost pay, and punitive damages but not compensatory damages
