We overheard someone (not a speaker) at a recent seminar opining that Wal-Mart settled its California meal period case for a fraction of the amount of the jury verdict. Not true. The appeal is still pending, and just a few days ago, Wal-Mart received yet another extension of time to file its opening brief. Savaglio filed an opening brief on the plaintiffs' appeal on August 24, 2007. Wal-Mart's brief is due on Christmas Eve.
