Family of Ill Children File Taco Bell Lawsuit

Posted in Intentional Tort at 1:52 pm by kevin

Taco Bell was more like Taco Hell to the Keith Andrew family in Sydney, Nebraska, when after dining at the restaurant in October 2005, their two children, ages 4 and 7-years-old became violently. The youngest of the children spent a night in the hospital for gastroenteritis and dehydration and the other became ill as well.

The lawsuit alleges that Keith Andrew, a local police officer and his family were being targeted by employees, who urinated and spit on food and put it in a special pan just for local cops. The lawsuit also alleges that management knew of the practice and was negligence to act to protect patrons.
