Walgreens wins discrimination suit

February 14, 2007|From Times Wire Reports

A jury cleared Walgreen Co. of racial discrimination alleged in a $2.5-million civil lawsuit brought by four black Texas men who say they were wronged at a Reno drugstore four years ago.

In their lawsuit in Washoe County District Court, the men claimed that a photo lab clerk shouted a racial slur, slammed a door and denied them service after they complained about the quality of their photos. Walgreens maintained the incident was a case of poor customer service, not bias.
