Mark A. Spognardi

Chicago Partner Mark Spognardi is the planning chair for tomorrow’s ALI-ABA teleseminar Wal-Mart Stores v. Dukes: Lessons and Insights for the Employment Lawyer. The one-hour seminar scheduled for 12 p.m. CST is geared to employment lawyers and will evaluate the sexual discrimination lawsuit, which was the largest civil rights class action suit in United States history. It charged Wal-Mart with discriminating against women in promotions, pay, and job assignments in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.  On June 20 the Supreme Court ruled in Wal-Mart’s favor on class action certification, saying the plaintiffs did not have enough in common to constitute a class.  To register or learn more, please click here.
