According to the New Jersey Law Journal on May 15, Walmart is being sued in connection with a 2010 incident at its Turnersville store in which a racist announcement was broadcast on the store’s public address system.
It was on March 14, 2010 that a male voice announced, “Attention Walmart customers: All black people must leave the store.”
A manager quickly made his own announcement, apologizing for the message, and it was subsequently discovered that a 16-year-old had made the broadcast.
The teenager was charged with harassment and bias intimidation, but now Donnell Battie, who is black, is suing Walmart claiming the store was negligent and reckless and showed deliberate indifference by not keeping the P.A. system safe from abuse, according to the New Jersey Law Journal.
