CASE UPDATE: I am pleased to report that the $2 million verdict awarded to pharmacist Cynthia Haddad against Wal-Mart was affirmed by the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court in a decision dated October 5, 2009. The award includes $733,000 in front pay damages and $1,000,000 in punitive damages for Wal-Martís outrageous conduct in wrongfully terminating pharmacist Haddad. This case began in April 2004 and hopefully will now end in October 2009. As lead counsel throughout the case, this verdict represents the pinnacle of my legal-pharmacy career to date. More importantly, the victory represents justice for Cindy Haddad and her husband, Bill Haddad. Read the entire Supreme Court opinion on my website at Verdicts & Settlements and download the attachment on the related story dated 10-5-09.
Feel free to contact me at any time should you need legal advice. In my practice, I value pharmacists and any pharmacy related clients. For example, in the Haddad matter, three non-pharmacist lawyers turned the case down because the amount in controversy (less than $2,000 in unpaid wages) did not justify taking on the largest private employer in the world.
