CHARLESTON - A Putnam County man has filed a suit against the nation's largest retailer after his car was damaged when improper work was performed during an oil change.
Roger D. Null of Poca filed a suit Nov. 14 in Kanawha Circuit Court against Wal-Mart.
According to the suit, on June 4, 2007, Null took his 2005 Dodge Ram truck to the Nitro Wal-Mart to have an oil and filter change.
The work was performed on his truck, a new oil filter was found for the truck and sold to Null.

Attorney Thomas H. Peyton is representing Null. The case has been assigned to Judge Louis Bloom.
