    I’ll bet he stops shopping at Walmart once that check clears!

    $7.5mil for a slip/fall broken hip. No punitive damages.

    Just let that marinate a bit.

      Yes, you think he would have gotten less, because things cost less at WalMart!

    As William Shakespeare’s Henry VI, Part 2, Act IV, Scene 2. The full quote is “The first thing we do, let’s kill all the lawyers”.

    Although the line is a joke and I would never literally support hurting someone for this we need to take back control over the outrageous verdicts. I agree that this method of display has inherent danger but so does everything in life. Sometimes bad things happen to good people and no one is to blame.

      Don’t shoot the lawyers. The lawyers did not make the damage award. The jury did. I venture to bet that most of those jurors in that extremely-red state profess to believe in small government and personal responsibility, yet they returned this ridiculous verdict. Shame on the jurors. Alabama is known as one of the judicial hell-holes in this country.

        Before you blame the jurors, take a look in the mirror (figuratively, not personally) and see if we should blame the people who avoid jury duty. Americans (myself included) need to step up and be willing to serve for the public good.

        As someone much cleverer than myself once said, “are you comfortable trusting your fate to twelve people who weren’t smart enough to get out of jury duty?”

        Alabama can’t hold a candle to many blue states as judicial hell holes.

    “Walmart continues to display watermelons in the same manner as it did on June 25, 2015,” the company in a court filing on Wednesday. “These displays come to the store from the producer already packaged and ready to be dropped and displayed.”

    I might be shopping for watermelons at Walmart this weekend. Cha-ching.

    Sally, don’t worry. Most of us understood that your comment was sarcastic. It didn’t warrant an insult. It was funny.

    I think that they should make him change his name from Walker to Tripper.
