Famed actor and comedian Tracy Morgan has filed a lawsuit against Walmart .  He was seriously injured, and his companion and fellow comedian James McNair was killed, when their chauffeured vehicle was struck by a WalMart truck going too fast under the control of an overly tired driver.

It would be easy to write this off as a one-time incident.  As something which was the mistake of one employee, and not a concern for management.  Walmart is huge, and anyone could easily say “mistakes will happen, so don’t worry.”  And as the country’s largest company (by sales and employees,) Walmart is an easy target for lawsuits.

But that would belie a much more concerning situation.  One that should have investors plenty worried.
