Walmart Victorious

Earlier I wrote about Maryland's Anti-Walmart law. Well, it turns out that a federal judge ruled in favor of the Retail Industry Leader's Association, the group that brought suit on behalf of Walmart.

I was unable to find any links to the opinion or basis thereupon, but I would guess it was preemption based upon the federal ERISA laws, rather than Equal Protection, which I think was also a problem. Keep an eye out for the news story. I will likely be too busy in the final Bar Exam push to blog any more until then. Best to my colleagues taking it in Minnesota.
