    Yes you read it right they destroyed her 100 dollar bills and held her against her will.

    Raquel Erhard – Fourth Estate Cooperative Contributor
    Texas, United States (4E) – A Texas resident is suing Wal-Mart after its employees ripped up her $100 bills and detaining her without cause for hours despite getting a validation that the money is real.
    Julia Garcia said that she was publicly humiliated during the late-night December 2010 Christmas shopping incident at the San Antonio Wal-Mart.
    The court document acquired by the Court House News stated that it was around 2 a.m. when Garcia approached the cashier to pay cash for her $150 worth of purchases. She handed over a $100 bill and a $50 bill. The cashier started inspecting the $100 bill, had a short discussion about the bill with a nearby cashier, and declared the complainant’s money as fake.

    I dont usually like the whole "humiliation" thing, however both the cashier and the manager should have been criminally booked for destruction of property, and wal-mart should at a minimum give her the money back.

    She should be awarded more than just her money back. a couple of million.

    Over $200? Maybe some payment for her time, but what justifies a million dollar payout when she is not injured, not permanently disabled, and in the end the police sorted out the matter?

    Also what did walmarts shareholders do to this woman? You may be able to link a lack of training to the actions, but this does not warrant a million dollar payout.

    Getting wronged is not like hitting the lottery.

    Not because of damage to the money but the false imprisonment

    Then prosecute the manager if they have a case for it. I would think you already have him on destruction of property (the cashier as well). 2 hours is still not worth millions of dollars.

    Yes it's worth a couple of million. Wal mart needs to have better training for their managers, and better hiring policy for management personal.

    Why does this whiny bitch have to sue? No one forces her to shop at Wal-Mart, she just shouldn't shop there anymore and let the free market punish Wal-Mart. Instead she goes to suck a trial lawyers cock so he can shake down Wal-Mart - who has created 1.3 million jobs. Wal-Mart will just pass on the cost of the suit to consumers and then you and I will wind up paying more. How can this bitch be so selfish?


    OH SHIT - my bad - I thought I was a TEA BAGGER CONSERVATIVE for a second.
