Supreme Court rules for Whirlpool

A Supreme Court ruling came down on the side of Whirlpool, as the highest court sent a class-action case back to appeals court for reconsideration. 

At issue was the class-action status of the case brought against the appliance maker.

The Supreme Court's ruling, which came down Monday, was related to another class-action ruling that dealt with a case involving a class-action suit filed against Comcast. 

In Whirlpool's case, a class-action lawsuit was organized on the behalf of consumers who claimed the products emitted unpleasant odors.
