WOODBURY - An administrative judge has upheld a$7,000 fine against Wal-Mart Stores Inc. following the 2008stomping death of a worker at its Valley Stream store during apost-Thanksgiving Day holiday sale. The U.S. Department of Labor announced Friday that a judge withthe Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission in Washingtonhad upheld the fine. Federal workplace safety regulators had cited Wal-Mart forinadequate crowd management. A Wal-Mart spokesman says the company would likely appeal.

After the death, Wal-Mart revamped its crowd-management policiesas part of a nonprosecution agreement with the local districtattorney.AP wire services contributed to this report
