A Wisconsin jury has awarded more than $125m to a longtime Walmart employee with Down Syndrome who brought three claims of disability discrimination against the grocery store giant.  

The eight-member jury found that the retailer failed to accommodate Marlo Spaeth’s disability when she requested to have her working schedule changed and then fired her in July 2015 because of her disability.
