Hotline: Lawsuit dropped against Wal-Mart

Julie Roehm, Wal-Mart's former marketing chief, has dropped her lawsuit against the US retail giant.

She was sacked last December after an alleged inappropriate relationship with a colleague and untoward dealings with executives at DraftFCB, which was relieved of Wal-Mart's $570 million account after only two months. Roehm said the lawsuit had become "difficult and financially draining".
