Julie Roehm, the former Wal-Mart advertising executive, whose lawsuit against the company was thrown out by a federal court judge, says she will not refile the the case, according to an Associated Press article:
In August, a judge threw out Julie Roehm's suit filed in Michigan, saying the matter should be heard in Arkansas, where Wal-Mart is based in Bentonville. With Roehm's decision to not refile, Wal-Mart spokeswoman Mona Williams said Monday the company would drop its countersuit against Roehm.
Roehm said she received no money from Wal-Mart, the world's largest retailer.
"I just decided not to pursue it," Roehm said in a telephone interview Monday. She wouldn't elaborate beyond a prepared statement that her lawsuit had wound up going beyond her effort to recover severance pay.
"Instead, the lawsuit has expanded into other issues, and has become more difficult and financially draining than I ever imagined," Roehm said in the statement.
