It begins! Suing a restaurant for putting pork on food is coming to America. We’re hoping this case is thrown out of court STAT!
This is truly a slippery slope because there are so many things to be offended by with different religions. Can you imagine the number of lawsuits that would suddenly pop up if this Dearborn, Michigan couple or the others suing win their case? It’s really their word against the employee’s word. We’d like to know what you think…
One Added Note: Just one Muslim lawyer (see below) has all three cases of people suing KFC, Little Caesars and Denny’s.
Dearborn Patch reported:
A Muslim couple from Dearborn is suing Kentucky Fried Chicken for having recently been served bacon on a chicken sandwiches. An unspecified amount of damages are being sought by the couple, who purchased the sandwiches at a Lincoln Park KFC. They allege cheese and bacon were added to the sandwiches after they requested cheese only, according to a Detroit Free Press report.
In May, a Dearborn man of Muslim faith sued Little Caesars for $100 million after he was allegedly served and then accidentally ate pepperoni made with pork, a food prohibited by Islamic law. The boxes were labeled “halal,” but the pies inside were topped with regular pepperoni.
DEARBORN ATTORNEY TRIES TO CASH-IN:
Dearborn attorney Majed Moughni (pictured below) piled lawsuits in both cases. He is also representing a Jewish woman in Sterling Heights, who is suing Denny’s Restaurants for also having been served bacon, the Free Press reported.
“The newer lawsuits allege breach of contract, negligent representation, and are asking for monetary damages for what they said is emotional and physical distress from having eaten bacon. Both lawsuits have been filed in Wayne County Circuit Court.”
“At KFC we respect the religious beliefs of our guests of all faiths,” said a KFC spokesman. “We believe this lawsuit was filed as a result of a miscommunication between the guest and our team member. We cannot comment further on pending litigation against one of our franchisees.”
