CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) -- Walmart is being sued for $1 million by a man who claims he was traumatized by a racist comment made over an intercom at one of the company's stores in southern New Jersey two years ago.

Donnell Battie of Winslow claims Walmart was negligent in failing to control access to the store's intercom, which was used to broadcast an announcement ordering all Black people to leave the Washington Township store. A 16-year-old boy was arrested days later and charged with harassment and bias intimidation.

Walmart spokesman Greg Rossiter tells the Courier-Post the firm has apologized for the March 2010 incident and has worked to prevent future incidents.

Battie claims he's required medical care due to the comment that caused him "severe and disabling emotional and psychological harm."
