Black Customer, 74, Drops Civil Rights Suit Against Trader Joe’s


A 74-year-old Black man has dropped his lawsuit against Trader Joe’s in which he alleged a white store captain at the Chatsworth location wrongfully blocked him from leaving for several minutes with a cart of groceries he had already bought while shopping in 2020.

A lawyer for plaintiff Rene McCray filed court papers on Thursday with Chatsworth Superior Court Judge Melvin Sandvig asking that the case be dismissed “with prejudice,” meaning it cannot be refiled later. The court papers did not state if a settlement was reached or if McCray was not pursuing the case for other reasons.

On Jan. 26, Sandvig denied a motion by lawyers for the Monrovia-based company and the store captain, Michael Milosevich, to dismiss McCray’s remaining causes of action for civil rights violations, false imprisonment and both intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress.
