A Winslow, N.J., man has filed a $1 million suit against Walmart following a 2010 incident in the company’s Washington Township store.
An Atlantic County 16-year-old has already been charged for hijacking the store’s intercom to make the announcement, “Attention, Wal-Mart customers. All black people must leave the store.”
According to the Courier-Post, Donnell Battie is suing the company for the “severe and disabling emotional and psychological harm” he says he experienced as a result of the incident.
Walmart has apologized for the incident and a spokesperson said the intercom system has been updated to prevent another such occurrence.
