Wal-Mart sues a photographer’s widow over old family photographs Published: May 23, 2014

Even people who hate Wal-Mart are inspired by Sam Walton’s rags-to-riches entrepreneurial success. A World War II veteran, he bought a variety store in a small rural town in 1950 and 41 years later owned the largest retail chain in America, according to The Washington Post.

But a collection of photographs taken between 1950 and 1994 that captures the story of a family living the American dream has become the subject of an ugly lawsuit.

The photos were taken by Robert Huff, who owned Bob’s Studio of Photography in Fayetteville, Ark., about 35 minutes down the road from where the Walton family lived. Huff’s son David joined the family business and over the years they shot hundreds of photos of the Waltons, The Post reports.
