Macy's Faces National Class-Action Lawsuit
The African-American actor who was arrested while shopping at Macy's in New York City is taking his complaint against the retailer nationwide, the New York Daily News reports. Rob Brown, the star of "Treme," has filed a new 42-page federal class-action lawsuit that says Macy's "policies and practices have left … customers of color feeling victimized, humiliated, traumatized." The lawsuit includes 14 other minority customers who allege their race raised criminal suspicion when they were shopping at the retailer's stores. It seeks a permanent injunction against Macy's to halt its behavior and compensatory and punitive damages for the claimants.
