Cullum v. Walmart – Legal Reform
Tennessee Supreme Court
The case concerns a woman injured in the parking lot of a Walmart. The woman was struck by a car driving by another customer who'd been kicked out of the discount store minutes earlier, allegedly for being belligerently drunk. The injured woman filed a negligence suit against the woman who struck her as well as Walmart, raising questions about whether the retailer did enough to protect its customers. The trial court dismissed the case, but the court of appeals said the store should have done more to keep to its other customers from harm.
