NEW YORK — An antitrust lawsuit seeking $100 million in damages and alleging racial targeting was filed in Manhattan federal court Tuesday against Macy’s and its parent Federated Department Stores.
In the lawsuit, which seeks class-action status, plaintiff Sharon Simmons-Thomas, an African-American woman, said she was stopped by two plainclothes security guards while shopping at the Herald Square store shortly before Christmas. Even though she tried to show them her receipts for purchases made at the store, she said she was detained, handcuffed to a bench and her purchases confiscated.
