CHICAGO — A woman is suing Macy's, claiming she lost her job when store employees allegedly falsely accused her of shoplifting.
Angela Almaguer filed a complaint on July 17 in Cook County Circuit Court, alleging the defendant accused her of putting an item in her bag without paying for it.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges she was banned from the Macy's store in Woodfield Mall in Schaumburg, which affected her employment at a Benefit's "brow bar" located inside the store. The plaintiff holds the defendant responsible for allegedly issuing false statements that she lied to agents and employees about an item that was taken from the store.
The plaintiff seeks judgment against the defendant in an amount greater than $50,000 plus court costs and any further relief this court grants. She is represented by Donald J. Angelini, Jr. and Danielle D'Ambrose of Angelini & Ori LLC in Chicago.
