Marshall v. Burger King

The Supreme Court of the State of Illinois last year ruled against Burger King for inadequate protection of its diners in this case. A patron went to her car in the carpark, managed to reverse into a streetlight, then get her foot stuck on the accelerator going forward, struck a kerb, became airborne.....ultimately, the car flew through the air, crashed through BK's wall and crushed a diner to death. You would think the family would sue the driver but why go after the perp. when the corporation has so much more money.... They successfully sued BK instead as the courts found the dining establishment to have neglected to provide adequate protection for its diners.
Guess they'll have to start hiring psychics to keep them informed of upcoming weird and freaky phenonmenon.
