Kathleen Doheny of Healthy Traveler did an article today on our client Ernie Lyon of Florida who was sickened with Shigella from an airplane meal (a chicken potpie, a roll and a salad topped with cucumbers and carrots).
From the article:
Lyon, his wife, Debbie, and eight other travelers are suing Gate Gourmet, which prepared the food and services many other major airlines, says Drew Falkenstein, a Marler Clark attorney working on the case. “We have filed a lawsuit against Gate Gourmet for negligence, strict liability and breach of warranty,” Falkenstein says. They are asking for unspecified compensatory and punitive damages.
