Kansas Woman Sues Walmart for Getting Trampled in Holiday Sale

FORT SCOTT, Kan. (AP) — A southeast Kansas woman who says she was knocked down and trampled during an "early Black Friday" promotion is suing Walmart for not doing enough to protect her.  Amanda DuVall of Fort Scott says she got to the local store at 5pm on November 28, 2013, to wait for the 8pm sale of a $49.99 tablet.  She says at 8pm, she was suddenly thrust forward from behind, her body fell violently to the floor, her face struck the hard tile and other customers stomped on her.  The Topeka Capital-Journal reports DuVall filed a lawsuit in state court in Bourbon County on October 22, and Walmart had the case moved to federal court in Topeka on November 14.
A Walmart spokesman says DuVall's claims couldn't be verified.
