Walmart, Inc.'s Suit against Government Gets Dismissed

On February 4, the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas dismissed Walmart Inc.’s lawsuit against the DOJ and DEA which accused them of “scapegoating the chain to divert attention from its own failures to effectively address the public-health crisis over opioids.” Federal Judge Sean D. Jordan, in his ruling, asserted that the government had not waived sovereign immunity. Walmart stated that it will be issuing an appeal.
