An Arab- and Muslim-American man filed a $12 million lawsuit Thursday against a Wal-Mart store that caters to his community -- saying employees discriminated against him and fired him because of his background. Louay Kezy accuses Wal-Mart and three employees at its Dearborn, Mich., store of violating his civil rights through threats, harassment and dismissal after he complained about the employees' conduct. The store opened in March with the area's large Arab and Muslim population in mind.
