Nov 30 - Walmart said she shoplifted; jury awards her $2.1 million
 

 
MOBILE, Ala. -- An Alabama woman who says she was falsely arrested for shoplifting at a Walmart and then threatened by the company after her case was dismissed has been awarded $2.1 million in damages.

A Mobile County jury on Monday ruled in favor of Lesleigh Nurse of Semmes, news outlets reported.

Nurse said in a lawsuit that she was stopped in November 2016 when trying to leave a Walmart with groceries she said she already paid for, according to AL.com. She said she used self-checkout but the scanning device froze. Workers didn’t accept her explanation and she was arrested for shoplifting.

Her case was dismissed a year later, but then she received letters from a Florida law firm threatening a civil suit if she didn’t pay $200 as a settlement, according to her lawsuit. That was more than the cost of the groceries she was accused of stealing.

Nurse said Walmart instructed the law firm to send the letters — and that she wasn’t the only one receiving them.

“The defendants have engaged in a pattern and practice of falsely accusing innocent Alabama citizens of shoplifting and thereafter attempting to collect money from the innocently accused,” the suit contended.

WKRG reported that the trial featured testimony that Walmart and other major retailers routinely use such settlements in states where laws allow it, and that Walmart made hundreds of millions of dollars this way in a two-year period.

Defense attorneys for Walmart said the practice is legal in Alabama. A spokesperson told AL.com that the company will be filing motions in this case because it doesn’t “believe the verdict is supported by the evidence and the damages awarded exceed what is allowed by law.”

Yep!!!

I remember I was working at Walmart, and a lady there, who was cool… but figured I had been stealing, saw me by the SD cards.

My homeboy alerted me that she was suspicious…. So I put it back and walk to the time clock

She’s stops me with another LP lady and tells me to empty out my pockets smh and I had nothing…… She gonna tell me “hey don’t tell anyone I searched please” then tries to laugh it off.

If I told y’all the stories of the corruption going on there during my time working there…. MAN!!! Even the district manager got fired

And then karma happened

A spokesperson told AL.com that the company will be filing motions in this case because it doesn’t “believe the verdict is supported by the evidence and the damages awarded exceed what is allowed by law.”

Maybe the hair supplies were coming up missing? Businesses around here lock up formula, but much more valuable sh*t that’s worth more than 30 bucks isn’t! It seems like lock up sh*t people steal the most

That's what I'm confused about. I was thinking maybe the computer didn't freeze but the printer ran out of receipt paper. I've been to numerous gas stations, retail spots where their self-checkouts run out of paper. So I just dip. If someone accused me of anything I'd tell them to suck my d*ck and keep moving. If it became serious, I got a lawsuit and my chase banking app. Showing the transaction was done.

I went to Best Buy to return something last month. No receipt, but had my cards. Tried my debit, which I thought it was on, he didn’t find it. Then I tried my other cards because, well sometimes I may use something else, and nothing. I’m thinking damn, I rarely carry cash, but whatever. At my car I checked my Wells Fargo app, and there is the charge on my statement. Went back inside like wtf man? All of a sudden all my previous purchases magically show up on my debit card Dude either thought I stole it or was trying to deny my return.
