WASHINGTON (AP) - The Supreme Court is turning down appeals by Wal-Mart Stores Inc. and Wells Fargo & Co. of multimillion-dollar class-action judgments.

The high court orders Monday follow last month’s decision upholding a $5.8 million judgment against Tyson Foods Inc.

The appeals turned away by the justices raise similar issues relating to the use of statistical evidence in class actions.

Wells Fargo was appealing a $203 million judgment for charging customers too much in overdraft fees relating to debit-card purchases.

Wal-Mart was objecting to a judgment of more than $151 million in favor of employees who were forced to work through lunch breaks at Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club stores in Pennsylvania.
