U.S. Second Circuit Court of Appeals Rules that Fat People Can Sue McDonalds for their own overeating Story dated 25 January 2005
Well, almost. The case that was thrown out for being stupid was improperly dismissed. In other words, it's still probably going to be thrown out on the basis of frivolity and stupidity, but the judge that originally dismissed the case accidentally violated civil procedure rules. Any lawyer that would file such a lawsuit ought to be shunned. I fail to see how someone who willingly stuffs himself full of fattening food for years can sue the restaurant when he gets diabetes. A little known study from the '70s discovered that you could actually survive and live quite healthfully if you were stranded at a McWendyKing, but the onus is on you to make sure you eat your food in the correct ratios. _____________________________________________
