The family of a Maryland man has settled a botched prescription lawsuit against Wal-Mart. The suit was filed after the man received the wrong medicine from a Wal-Mart pharmacist and subsequently died. The details of the settlement are confidential and were sealed by a federal judge in Baltimore. Sixty-six-year-old George Smith died in March 2007. He became ill eight days after receiving prescriptions intended for someone else. Mr. Smith became ill, was hospitalized, and subsequently died. Harry Barnes, an Elkton lawyer, represented the family.
