Supreme Court of Pennsylvania Issues a Decision Affirming the Multi-Million Dollar Class Action Judgment Against Wal-Mart Stores, Inc

DONOVAN AXLER, LLC announced that the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania has issued a decision affirming the multi-million dollar class action judgment against Wal-Mart Stores Inc. in favor of Pennsylvania hourly employees. The Commonwealth's Court issued an opinion that resoundingly affirmed the decisions of two lower courts and a unanimous class action jury verdict issued in 2006. In October 2006, a Philadelphia jury found that 186,000 current and former Wal-Mart employees were owed $78.5 million in unpaid wages for off-the-clock work and paid break violations from March 1998 through April 2006. Subsequently, trial judge Mark I. Bernstein awarded an additional $62.2 million in statutory liquidated damages, $10.2 million in prejudgment interest, $33.8 million in statutory attorney fees and $11.9 million in non-statutory attorney fees, bringing the total judgment to over $180 million. The Pennsylvania Superior Court affirmed the bulk of Judge Bernstein's judgment. Wal-Mart argued in the Supreme Court that paid breaks are not fringe benefits; that the two class actions should not have been certified; and that due process required testimony from each of the 186,000 employees at the trial of case. But the High Court rejected those arguments, saying the trial evidence supported the trial court's decisions and that Wal-Mart's own records provided proof of all of the workers' claims.

Judge Rejects Bid to Delay Tracy Morgan Lawsuit Filed Against Wal-Mart

Tracy Morgan has won the latest round in his effort to sue Wal-Mart and others over a fatal crash in New Jersey. A federal judge refused to delay the lawsuit. The ruling came on a motion by Kevin Roper, the driver of the Wal-Mart truck authorities say slammed into the back of Morgan's limo van on the New Jersey Turnpike in June. Roper, of Georgia, isn't named as a defendant but is facing criminal charges. He wanted the suit delayed until his criminal case was resolved.

National Labor Relations Board Judge Rules Against Wal-Mart in a Case in Which Workers Accused Management at California Stores

A National Labor Relations Board judge has ruled against Wal-Mart in a case in which workers accused management at California stores of illegally disciplining them and intimidation over their organizing activities. The workers are not unionized, but are supported by the United Food and Commercial Workers Union, and over the past three years they have staged various protests against the retailer, recently attempting to demonstrate on Black Friday and calling for $15-per-hour wages. Among the specifics in the ruling, the judge found six employees at a Richmond, California, store were illegally punished for participating in a 2012 one-day strike, that managers had tried to intimidate workers by threatening to close a store if too many workers joined a union, and that Wal-Mart's dress code unduly restricted associates' right to wear union insignia.
