Frivolous Lawsuit Friday

(★™, Flickr)

A Pennsylvania woman sued Wal-Mart over a 2 cent price difference, and she won!

Mary Bach, ‘Consumer Activist’, says she was charged $1 for sausages that were priced 98 cents on the shelf. She was refunded her money the first time she reported the mistake.

However, on another visit to the store she was charged 2 cents too much. According to an Associated Press story,  she refused a refund and sued the store.

She was awarded $100 with an additional $80 in court costs. That’s Wal-Mart savings to the extreme, turning 2 cents in to $180. Too bad she thought of the idea first.

Wal-mart claims that a change in the packaging lead to the mistake and said they offered to refund Bach her money.
