Wal-Mart pays $81.6 million settlement for environmental crimes against America

 According to reports, the massive retailer was ordered to pay $81.6 million for violating Environmental Protection Agency regulations regarding the improper disposal of hazardous waste and pesticides. Wal-Mart settled with the government after cases had been brought against it by the Department of Justice in San Francisco, Los Angeles and Missouri, as well as a civil suit brought by the EPA.

Noting it was "pleased" the cases were finally resolved, the multi-billion dollar retailer said the cases stemmed largely from "misdemeanor violations of certain environmental laws" that occurred "years ago."
