RICHMOND, Va. - The Fourth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals on July 25 let stand the certification of a class of employees alleging hostile work environment claims, finding that the petition filed by the employer for interlocutory review of a trial court's refusal to decertify the class was untimely (Nucor Corporation, et al. v. Quinton Brown, et al., No. 14-154, 4th Cir.; 2014 U.S. App. LEXIS 14182).
