Aug 2 (Reuters) - A U.S. judge rejected on Friday an attempt by women suing Wal-Mart to bring a reformulated class action against the company.

The ruling from U.S. District Judge Charles Breyer in San Francisco comes after the U.S. Supreme Court had previously rejected a larger nationwide class.

The women allege the company discriminated against women in pay and promotions in some regions of California.
