The store used a law firm to get her to pay up.

Lesley Nurse was arrested in 2016 when she and her family were shopping at a major Walmart supermarket when they were mistaken for shoplifters. The purchases included bread, cereal, and other groceries totaling $48 (about $5,400). When she used the self-checkout, she was mistakenly told that she had not paid.

 

Ms. Nurse denied shoplifting, but the store used a law firm to demand payment. They said they would not take any legal action if she paid $200, which was more than the actual amount. Since Ms. Nurse was sure that she had paid, she filed a lawsuit against the store on the contrary.

 

On November 29, at a local court, the jury unanimously returned a verdict in favor of Ms. Nurse. At the same time, they accused Wal-Mart of threatening Ms. Nurse, and ordered the store to pay $2.1 million (237 million yen) in damages.

 

Now, what will Ms. Nurse do with all this money?
