Walmart is facing a difficult situation with the court system and the courts in general. 

“There’s no question it’s a challenging time for us,” CEO Doug McMillon said, adding that it’s “very difficult” for him to answer any questions about the future.

“It’s not just about the court cases,” he added.

“We have a lot of ongoing legal matters.” 

McMillon added that the company is still “investigating all of our policies and procedures” in the wake of the new ruling.

“We have to evaluate all of the things that have been written and the policies that we have in place, and whether they’re appropriate for our community,” he said. 

Mcmillon also reiterated that Walmart “will not be making any further changes to our policies.” 

“We are very confident that we can handle the situation,” he continued.

“I think we’ve done a lot in the past.

It’s not that we’ve been shy about doing things, but we’re still a very big company.

I think there’s a lot more to do.” 

Walmart was also slammed by the ACLU for what they said was the company’s use of a loophole in California’s new law to keep workers from reporting to police in case of a possible domestic violence call. 

The company responded to the ACLU’s lawsuit by claiming that they had “not engaged in a pattern or practice” of using this loophole. 

Walton also announced that it would start allowing its employees to use their own personal medical devices on the job, rather than relying on the company to have them shipped to them. 

While the decision was hailed by labor unions and consumer groups, it also came at a cost to the company.

Walmart lost about $1.5 billion in 2015. 

Meanwhile, the city of Santa Ana, California, passed a resolution Monday banning all police use of force in the city and ordered Walmart to pay $25 million in fines.
