PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A Multnomah County grand jury has ordered Walmart to pay $4.4 million in damages to a man who sued the store saying he was racially profiled and harassed by a Walmart employee at a Portland, Oregon, area store in 2020.

KGW reports the lawsuit says the employee “spied” on Dovey Mangum while shopping, ordered him to leave and called police when he refused. Mangum’s lawyers said Walmart allowed the employee to keep his job afterward, even though law enforcement said the employee had previously made false reports about customers.

Walmart spokesperson Randy Hargrove called into question some of the claims and said Walmart considers the verdict “excessive.”
