BELLEVILLE – A
restaurant patron is suing after she allegedly injured a
tooth while eating a salad the restaurant sold her.
Kimberly Richey filed the suit April 28
in St. Clair County Circuit Court against Bella Milano Inc.
On March 17, 2015, Richey purchased the
restaurant's Milano Salad to consume off premises. The suit
alleges that Richey bit into a hardened piece of prosciutto ham,
fracturing the root of a tooth.
The suit brings the counts of strict
liability, breach of implied warranty, breach of express warranty and
negligence against the defendant.
The plaintiff seeks an amount in excess
of the court's jurisdictional requisite that will fairly and adequately
compensate her for her injuries, losses and damages, plus court
costs. She is represented by Shaun M. Lieser of the Lieser Law Firm
LLC in St. Louis.
