helps to do, all these- stores distinctive patterns of discrimination effecting women all across the country. we talked to women in different stores. they have made all of these statements with over 100 women given written statements in support. all reports have looked at this that yes itch to go forward as a class action. now, we're confident that this this should go forward as a class. >> marty: to you think that this is going to avoid any impact as women having inside? the woman have insight on this issue and you bring your own experience to every case you decide and that is the good thing. we want the case to be decided fairly based on the fax and the law. i am confident that the court will the right thing. >> isabel: you say that there is kovno but there has been conservative rulings a
circuit appeals judge that wal-mart women have little in common with their sex in this lawsuit. at the same argument is that perhaps they should not be so confident? a circuit judge. >> that is a common argument for this case. the fact is that these numbers do not lie in these experiments were so common all across the country. and every court has looked at this case millions of pages of evidence and heard these stories agree that they should go forward as a class action. and again, the supreme court is only going to decide the procedural issue. not weather or not the discrimination occurred. >> isabel: next week? >> yes. >> thank you. we will be right back.
