Cortez, Colo. (AP) Wal-mart Stores Inc. has asked a judge for a summary judgment in its favor in a lawsuit filed by a Colorado man who claims he got salmonella from jalapeno peppers purchased at a Cortez Supercenter.

Brian Grubbs of Dolores filed the suit in Montezuma County District Court in September, blaming peppers his family purchased from Wal-mart in June.

Attorneys for Bentonville, Ark.-based Wal-mart filed a motion
Last month saying grubbs' attorneys have produced no evidence that the store is liable.

The judge hasn't ruled on Wal-mart's request for a summary judgment.

Grubbs' suit seeks unspecified damages from Wal-mart and an unknown company that supplied the jalapenos to the store.
