What Would Wal-Mart Do....?

Actually, the question is, "What would you do?"

First there was this story, a week or so ago, about a brain damaged woman (a Wal-Mart employee) sued by Wal-Mart to recover medical expenses paid by them. This is a fairly routine practice known in the legal community as subrogation. No matter, the facts here are grim.

Then Wal-Mart reversed course.

What do you think of Jeff Jarvis' take, found here?
