We recently found out that the judgment in Savaglio v. Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., the $172 million break case tried in late 2005, was entered on October 11, 2006. The appeal clock is now ticking. Wal-Mart has already appealed several orders in the case, and their attorneys have been quoted promising to appeal this judgment. The opinion(s) should be interesting and will likely be published. We see at least a half-dozen substantial matters of first impression that could be raised in a well-drafted opening brief. In the interim, our spies tell us there is a motion for a new trial being heard on December 4.
