LOS ANGELES , August 23, 2011 () – The women who tried to file a class action lawsuit of up to 1.5 million Wal-Mart Stores Inc. employees against the world’s largest retailer for gender discrimination have been given until October to file individual claims, said a San Francisco judge, Reuters reported Aug. 19.

U.S. District Judge Charles Breyer has given the women until October 28 to file new claims, which could result in smaller class action suits.
