A while ago, a Taco Bell restaraunt had a scare. One of its employees came down with Hepatitis A, and might have infected customers and co-workers. The restaurant immediately reported it to the state, and also paid for free immunoglobulin treatment for any customers who wanted it.
That wasn’t enough for one family. The Evans family sued the chain, saying that they had been sickened twice after eating at the restaurant.
The judge looked at the family’s claims, and at a few other facts:
* None of the family came down with hepatitis.
* No doctor ever told them that their problems were caused by eating at Taco Bell.
* On neither occasion did the family seek medical attention.
So he did the reasonable thing: he threw the case out.
Looks like the family’s gonna have to go out and buy some lottery tickets, because they missed this jackpot.
