A Texas man is suing Walmart for the second time in three years, seeking $100 million in damages or a lifetime of free, unlimited shopping at one of its stores.
Roderick Jackson of Waskom, Texas, filed two handwritten complaints claiming he was suing Walmart over an incident that occurred in March 2021 at a store in Omaha, Nebraska.
Jackson's first complaint was filed back in 2021 and cited the exact same scenario and incident as his most recent complaint.
In his complaint, which Walmart shared with Fox News Digital, Jackson says he is “sewing.” [sic] for civil rights violations based on race/color.”

None of the complaints went into detail about the reasons Jackson was suing Walmart, instead claiming it was a case of “false pretense of shoplifting.”
In addition to the money and the shopping spree, Jackson is also asking Walmart to pay all court fees associated with the lawsuit.

“We do not tolerate discrimination of any kind. Mr. Jackson's allegations are almost identical to a lawsuit he filed against our company in 2021, which was dismissed. We intend to defend the company against the allegations once we are properly served and will follow up quickly.” “The court must dismiss any lawsuit that is without merit,” a Walmart spokesperson told Fox News Digital.
In the 2021 complaint, Jackson sued Walmart over the exact same alleged incident, claiming he was racially profiled and falsely accused of a crime, which led to his arrest.
