Judge in no rush to hear Wal-Mart bribery lawsuit

A Delaware judge scolded attorneys for two large public employee retirement systems on Monday for rushing to court with lawsuits over allegations of bribery involving Wal-Mart Stores’ operations in Mexico.

Chancellor Leo Strine Jr. denied competing motions from the California State Teachers Retirement System, or CalSTRS, and a group of New York City pension funds seeking appointments as lead plaintiff with lead counsel in a consolidated shareholder lawsuit alleging that Wal-Mart officials breached their fiduciary duties by allowing and covering up the alleged bribery.
