    Wal-Mart hires Justice Scalia's son for whistle-blower suits - by Michael Barbaro, Washington Post
    Wal-Mart's decision to retain Scalia has drawn fire from groups critical of the chain, such as Wal-Mart Watch and Wake Up Wal-Mart.

    'Only in Wal-Mart's America can they think it's right to hire Eugene Scalia to defend them against the same whistle-blower law he was supposed to help enforce at the Department of Labor,' said Chris Kofinis, a spokesman for Wake Up Wal-Mart. The group is closely linked to the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union, which has tried to organize Wal-Mart's nonunion labor force.

    Scalia defended his role, saying, 'I don't see anything unusual in a company seeking out the expertise of somebody who became familiar with the requirements of a new law, while serving as a federal law enforcement official.'
