Wal-Mart pays big for accusing woman of passing bogus money orders


The next time you go to Walmart, a tiny bit of the amount you pay for your purchases will go to Nitra Gipson of Texas, who a jury determined last week had received $9 million worth of humiliation at the hands of Walmart store employees. The employees accused her of attempting to cash in $4,100 of counterfeit Walmart money orders that she'd received by selling her car. She spent the next two days in the county lockup before the District Attorney decided to decline pressing charges.

The money orders turned out to be legitimate.
