High Court Drops Wal-Mart Disability Case
The U.S. Supreme Court has dropped a case from its docket in which an injured Wal-Mart worker contended she should been given preference for an open position.
The suit by Pam Huber had claimed Wal-Mart should have given her a job as a router, which paid $12.50 an hour, after she became injured on the job and was no longer able to earn $13 an hour filling orders at a distribution center. Instead the company offered Huber a job as a janitor at $6.20 an hour.
The St. Louis-based 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals had ruled the company was required only to allow Huber to compete for the router job.
The case was Huber v. Wal-Mart Stores.
