UCL Practitioner Reports on Dukes Oral Argument

Kim Kralowec has a detailed post on her UCL Practitioner blog describing yesterday's Ninth Circuit en banc oral argument in Dukes v. Walmart. As we noted in a prior post, Dukes raises questions about the propriety of classwide determination of punitive damages for Title VII claims. Kim concludes her post by agreeing with The Recorder's assessment that the outcome of the case is difficult to predict.
