Welcome to the Wal-Mart Litigation Project! The project gathers, refines, and markets information about lawsuits against Wal-Mart (now known by its new name Walmart). The term Wal-Mart includes Sam's Club.
The purpose of the Wal-Mart Litigation Project is to assist lawyers who sue Wal-Mart to force the company to act properly toward its customers, employees, and vendors. The project's goal is to "level the playing field" so plaintiffs have a better chance of winning suits where Wal-Mart has done wrong. The goal is to educate plaintiffs' lawyers about cases similar to their own against Wal-Mart, and to facilitate communication between plaintiffs' lawyers on issues of law, discovery and litigation tactics.
While the primary goal of the project is to assist lawyers by providing information, a second goal is this - to help people injured by Wal-Mart's wrongdoing find a lawyer who will take a meritorious case against the world's largest retailer. Use the box above to find a lawyer near you to handle your case.
