Actor Rob Brown settling shopper-profiling suit; Macy's says it welcomes all customers
NEW YORK, N.Y. - A black actor who accused Macy's of racially profiling shoppers is settling a civil rights lawsuit he filed after he was stopped and detained at the flagship New York store.
Macy's says in a statement Friday that "Treme" actor Rob Brown's federal case has been "settled in principle," as a judge indicated in a filing Wednesday. Macy's wouldn't discuss the terms.
Brown's lawyer, Douglas Wigdor, hasn't immediately responded to an inquiry.
Brown said he was falsely accused of credit card fraud, held for almost an hour and grilled about a $1,300 watch he'd bought for his mother in June 2013. He wasn't charged with any crime.
The suit was among several that spotlighted similar allegations. Macy's says it wants all customers to feel welcome.
