Woman sues CVS over phrase mocking Asians

BELMAR, NJ

Attorney Susan Lask says Hyun Lee was picking up photos Feb. 7 at a CVS in Egg Harbor City when Lee noticed the phrase "Ching Chong Lee" on her ticket.

Lee says she had used her own name when she ordered the photos online. Lee says she complained to CVS customer relations and was told the worker would be "counseled and trained."

CVS spokesman Mike DeAngelis says the company can't comment on litigation but has a firm non-discrimination policy.

Lask is seeking $1 million is the discrimination lawsuit filed Tuesday in Camden.

She's scheduled a news conference with her client in Belmar Thursday.
