MURRYSVILLE, Pa., Oct. 3 (UPI) -- A Pennsylvania woman was awarded $100 in damages from Walmart over a 2-cent disparity between an item's tagged price and its scanned price.

Murrysville District Judge Charles Conway sided with consumer activist Mary Bach of Murrysville, whose civil suit against Walmart claimed the company intentionally charged 2 cents more for Banquet "Brown 'N Serve" sausage than the price on the tag at the location near Delmont, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported Monday.

Conway awarded Bach, whose suit alleged unfair trade practices, $100 in damages and $80 in court costs Thursday.

"This is the fifth lawsuit we've had against this store for the same problem," Bach said. "This isn't an isolated incident."

Walmart, which had claimed the price difference was the result of new packaging for the products, has 30 days to appeal the verdict.
