Wal-Mart Ordered to Pay Legal Fees

Wal-Mart to pay Pa. plaintiff legal fees
Wal-Mart (NYSE:WMT) Stores Inc. has been ordered to pay $36.4 million in fees and expenses to attorneys representing Pennsylvania employees who won a class-action award for working off the clock.

The award entered in favor of the plaintiffs including fees and interest now totals $187.6 million, Common Pleas Judge Mark Bernstein wrote in an opinion issued Wednesday.
Which is an expensive and daunting precedent for all of the other class action lawsuits across the country.

Maybe Wal-Mart is starting to realize that screwing over employees is just bad business? Probably not.
