An attorney for a 24-year-old tourist from Great Britain who lost her left leg and almost her life in a grisly tangle with a New York City taxi driver has filed a notice of intent to sue the city for $27.5 million.

In addition, plainclothes detectives must identify themselves as such when approaching shoppers.

All three customers who have filed suit against Barney's and Macy's are either Hispanic or African-American.
