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.”
