As the Indy-Star reports, Marler Clark is representing a Greenwood man in a salmonella lawsuit against Wal-Mart Stores. The suit follows a salmonella outbreak this summer in which at least 84 people became ill. The Indiana State Department of Health traced the outbreak to the deli and bakery departments at the Wal-Mart on Emerson Avenue in Greenwood. The suit, filed on Thursday in Johnson County Superior Court, says the bacteria caused Noah Merritt, the son of Ryan Merritt of Greenwood, to become ill in August. Noah Merritt was briefly hospitalized because of the outbreak, the lawsuit claims. (See also: the full press release from the Indiana Department of Health that implicated Wal-Mart, below)
