Ever wonder why we have such a litigious society with far too many frivolous law suits … just ask Dennis Kucinich, it’s the pits.
US Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) is suing the Congressional cafeteria for $150,000 for selling him a vegetarian sandwich wrap in 2008 with an alleged olive pit in it. The Congressman claims that the olive pit caused dental damage. Unbelievable, the suit is claiming that the sandwich ”contained dangerous substances,” and biting into it caused serious “permanent dental and oral injuries requiring multiple surgical and dental procedures.” Good grief, Dennis Kucinich is also claiming loss of enjoyment. Sorry, but doesn’t Congress have a dental health care plan, unlike the one that they want to force upon others with Obamacare.
No wonder people have such a poor image of Congress, when those who contribute to the ills of society like frivolous lawsuits are the politicians in charge, America we have a problem.
The law suit can be read HERE.
The lawsuit that the Cleveland Democrat filed Jan. 3 against operators and suppliers of the Longworth House Office Building cafeteria says the sandwich he bought there “on or about” April 17, 2008 “contained dangerous substances, namely an olive pit, that a consumer would not reasonably expect to find in the final product served.”
Biting into it caused serious “permanent dental and oral injuries requiring multiple surgical and dental procedures,” the legal documents say. They contend the congressman is entitled to damages for future dental and medical expenses and to compensate him for pain, suffering, and loss of enjoyment.
Exactly what was Dennis’ los of enjoyment? Permanent dental and oral injuries … from an olive pit? C’mon man!!! How sad, a member of Congress looking to make a buck off a frivolous law suit. I guess it is safe to say that Dennis Kucinich will not be welcome at the Olive Garden any time soon.
