In another example of why costs go up.  A shopper at a Costco Wholesale store in Northeast Portland is suing the store for $670,000.  The male shopper says that he was pushing his shopping cart out of the store when he was detained because he wouldn't stop and show his receipt. The shopper tried to remove one of the employees who was holding on to his cart by grabbing the employee's shirt collar. A second employee then used a martial-arts-style kick to strike  breaking his leg in several places. (Oregon Live)
