    If the courts see this little contract deal as nothing more than a shell game to try and avoid responsibility then it's likely Walmart can't dodge a lawsuit. But they probably need to have evidence in the form of emails, memos, etc from Walmart linking them to acts taken by the contractor.

    If you have a contractor acting directly under orders from Walmart then I would imagine you can't call their relationship as individual companies. Especially if this contractor works solely for Walmart. On paper it may look like a separate company, but in reality they would act as part of Walmart. Therein lies the issue. If that is the case, and I am no legal scholar, they might have a case for tying Walmart into the lawsuit.
