Here is a Hint, Which political party has the most Lawyers?
Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D., Ohio) filed suit against Restaurants Associates Inc. of New York, its parent company, Compass Group, and two food distributors over a sandwich he bought in April 2008 at a House cafeteria.
Mr. Kucinich suffered “serious and permanent injuries” when he chomped down on one or more unpitted olives, according to a complaint filed in the Superior Court of the District of Columbia. He is seeking compensation of $150,000 (plus interest and costs) for “past and future dental and medical expenses, compensation for pain, suffering and loss of enjoyment and other damages.”
“The sandwich wrap was unwholesome and unfit for human consumption,” the complaint reads.
The congressman’s attorney, Andrew R. Young of the Cleveland firm Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy, declined to comment on the case, telling Washington Wire: “This is a private matter to be tried through the court system, not the public media.”
Mr. Kucinich’s office declined to comment. Calls placed to Restaurant Associates representatives were not immediately returned Wednesday afternoon.
