Saleswoman Sues Bloomingdale's & L'Oreal After Charges Dropped For Credit Card Fraud

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Feb 18 –  Kye Sun Kang was working at Bloomingdale's on Third Avenue in Manhattan on April 19, 2017 when she was arrested.  

 She was "informed that one of her Chinese clients, Mr. Kevin Chen, made purchases using fraudulent Bloomingdale's credit cards."   

The charges were dropped on September 29, 2017 - and Kang sued Bloomingdale's and L'Oreal.  

   On February 18 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Valerie E. Caproni held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it. 

 There was discussion of why Kang and not her non-Asian co-workers had been suspected. Ultimately L'Oreal's motion for summary judgment was denied in full, and Bloomingdale's had its partially denied.

The parties have to specify expert discovery by March 5, and also say if they would like a referral to Magistrate Judge Moses.

The case is Kang v. L'Oreal USA, Inc. et al., 18-cv-11682 (Caproni)
