Apple's appeal to throw out the class-action lawsuit filed on behalf of all current and former Apple Store employees in California and corporate staff has been denied.

Apple's petition was denied by a three-judge panel in a California Superior Court on November 26 according to a report by PC Mag:
The lawsuit could affect as many as 21,000 employees.
