Slate's Dahlia Lithwick says this week's Supreme Court dismissal of Wal-Mart v Dukes "may be the most consequential case of the current term." MOMocrat Joanne Bamberger says the Court basically told the women of America to just "shut up and go home."

Jessica Mason Pieklo joins Donna Schwartz Mills and Cynematic to discuss and explain the decision and how it affects cases of job discrimination on the basis of gender. 

Cynematic will also recap her journey to last week's Netroots Nation gathering in Minnesota.

Jessica Pieklo is a former litigator who, after nearly ten years litigating employment law, shareholder actions and fiduciary duty claims now writes and teaches for a living. Her areas of expertise include employment law, constitutional law, health law and business law. She teaches a number of law and political science courses for undergraduates and law students in the Minneapolis area and serves on the Board of Directors for Common Cause, Minnesota.
