Transcript for Women Soccer Players Files Wage Discrimination Lawsuit
To the index of other news tonight and to a federal complaint about equal pay. Five stars of the U.S. Women's soccer team filing a lawsuit. They are the reigning world cup and olympic champions, and they generate nearly $20 million more than the men's team. Yet, the men's team, who did not make it to the quarterfinals in the last world cup, were paid $9 million as a team. The women, who won it all, $2 million for the team. One of the players filing the complaint, star Alex Morgan, telling me why they're filing the complaint. We're doing the same work for less.

And to that "Wheel of fortune" moment tonight. 23-year-old Robert sandoli winning $76,000, steam rolling the competition with one successful after another. Solving a puzzle with just one letter revealed. Take a look. Port and starboard. Yeah, that's it. Woo! Port and starboard. He says he is going to pay off his college loans and may buy a car. One letter.
