ABC News' Ariane de Vogue (@arianedevogue) reports:

Senator Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing on Wednesday to explore the impact of  recent Supreme Court decisions. Betty Dukes, the lead plaintiff in Dukes v. Wal-Mart, will testify about the court’s  decision to block the largest employment discrimination class action suit from going forward. Nearly 1.5 million current and former Wal-Mart employees sought to band together and sue the company for sex discrimination. A conservative majority of the court said the women did not have enough in common to pursue their class action. The hearing begins at 10:30 a.m.
