BREAKING: Little Girl Molested By Wal-Mart Sex Offender, Gets Jack Squat

A Jury found Wal-Mart was not negligent in hiring a convicted sex offender who molested a 10 year old girl in a Wal-Mart electronics aisle six years ago.

After two days deliberation, the jury agreed with Wal-Mart’s defense that they had no legal obligation to pursue Bobby Randall’s criminal history and while their hiring process was not flawless, it was “reasonable.” CourtTv.com reported.

Counsel for the plaintiff (pictured, right) was shocked. “I was convinced that we had proven negligence and recklessness in the hiring and retention of Randall,” David Massey said. “I do not see any set of facts that the jury could have found for Wal-Mart. The jury, in essence, let the little girl down.”

Was the little girl let down? The suit was brought by her mother (pictured, left), whose reaction to the verdict you can watch in this video. Also, The judge makes jokes about lunch arriving in 15 minutes and apologizes that it’s not steak or lobster.

Wal-Mart has similar suits pending in six states. Massey is the attorney for another one of such plaintiffs.

    They must have figured that since this is what Wal-Mart does regularly to all people everywhere, making distinctions where children were concerned would be specious.

    i dont think wearing that dress was any help.

    i’d rather see a woman get nil than get $5M’s for a guy touching himself while clothed. it was bad. but not THAT bad. more than anything, i’m happy her lawyer got squat.

    is she wearing purple ribbon? we all know what that means, remember? no wonder the jury found for Wal-mart instead of a purple-ribbon wearer.

    I forgot about the purple ribbon.
