    Couple sue Wal-Mart over slip in vomit

    DAVENPORT, Iowa - A woman's fall in a puddle of vomit has resulted in a lawsuit against Wal-Mart. June Medema, slipped in the vomit at a Davenport Wal-Mart on June 13, 2005, according to the lawsuit, filed by Medema and her husband, James, in Scott County District Court earlier this month.

    Medema claims that she was seriously injured in the fall.

    The lawsuit alleges that Wal-Mart's negligence led to Medema's fall, but it does not specifically say how the store was negligent.

    John Simley, a Wal-Mart spokesman, decline comment saying he hadn't seen the lawsuit.

    The lawsuit claims that Medema suffered serious neck and upper back injuries in the fall and has undergone several surgeries and is unable to work.

    They will settle out of court.

    Which is sad because if Wal-mart wanted the publicity and the effort they would crush this law suit. It is much cheaper for them to write a check though.

    The best way to not step in puke is to look where you are going, has never steered me wrong.
