Walmart reaches a settlement in a lawsuit with an ex-employee involving health insurance.

A federal judge has approved a class action settlement between Walmart and an ex-employee who challenged the retail giant's lack of health insurance benefits for her same sex spouse. 
The $7.5 million settlement will pay for claims by former Walmart associates who say they were not able to obtain health insurance for their same sex spouses from 2011 to 2013. 
Both sides say they are pleased to settle the case.
