One would expect nothing less obstructionist from WalMart. They cannot argue on the merits; so first try to delay, delay delay.

Predators in this economic environment, with the "law" and judiciary on their side, know that the right court will eventually side with them, especially if they can delay long enough for another right-wing puppet to steal another presidential election and appoint another slough of corporatist judges. Besides, many of the women may need to back out and settle separately in an economy like this. Others may die by the time the case is actually heard on its merits, thereby reducing the potential payout. Delaying costs them nothing and offers them many potential benefits.

I hear ya Mary. It's usually a question of money, unfortunately. It remains to be seen who's for sale in this instance.
