Kansan Sues Walmart Over Black Friday Incident

KSAL StaffJanuary 6, 2015

A southeast Kansas woman who says she was knocked down and trampled during an “early Black Friday” promotion is suing Walmart for not doing enough to protect her.

Amanda DuVall of Fort Scott says she got to the local store at 5 p.m. on Nov. 28, 2013, to wait for the 8 p.m. sale of a $49.99 tablet.

She says at 8 p.m. she was suddenly thrust forward from behind, her body fell violently to the floor, her face struck the hard tile and other customers stomped on her.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports DuVall filed a lawsuit in state court in Bourbon County on Oct. 22, and Walmart had the case moved to federal court in Topeka on Nov. 14.

A Walmart spokesman says DuVall’s claims couldn’t be verified.
