Fired Wal-Mart Exec Won’t Re-file Suit

Bentonville, Ark., Aspokesman for fired former Wal-Mart Stores Inc. marketing executive Julie Roehm said she would not re-file her lawsuit against the retailer, according to a report on

The purpose for filing the lawsuit was to recover the severance pay that was outlined in that contract, Roehm said. “I thought that a settlement agreement would be reached within a few weeks. Instead, the lawsuit has expanded into other issues, and has become more difficult and financially draining than I ever imagined.”

In August, a Michigan judge dismissed Roehm’s lawsuit against Wal-Mart, citing a provision in Roehm’s contract that requires any lawsuit to be filed in Arkansas.

“I have decided to accept Wal-Mart’s decision to terminate my employment and move on,” she said. “I am not receiving any money or other compensation to settle my case.”
