Walmart took a $812,000 verdict in Baltimore City in a case where an employee was found to be wrongfully accused of conspiring with shoplifters, according to the Maryland Daily Record.
What is interesting is that substantially the same case was tried in front of the same judge in September and a mistrial was granted because the jury was deadlocked. It is amazing how two different jury panels can see the same case so differently.
The plaintiffs’ law firm is one I associate with defense work: Kerr McDonald. Walmart’s lawyer was the highly regarded – on both sides of the v – Christopher R. Dunn, with DeCaro, Doran, Siciliano, Gallagher & DeBlasis.
