NEW YORK — In a Barneys New York-commissioned review, San Francisco attorney Michael Yaki found that the retailers’ employees did not “request, require, nor initiate,” any police action against two African-American customers who claimed they were wrongly accused of credit card fraud.
In a report released Tuesday, Yaki found that no Barneys employees determined that either Kayla Phillips or Trayon Christian should be questioned by the New York Police Department about their Barneys’ purchases, or took any action “evidencing a belief or suspicion that either had committed or may have committed any illegal act that required or requested intervention by either Barneys’ Loss Prevention staff or the NYPD.”

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
