This Lawsuit Sounds Fishy
Tuna be or not tuna be, that is the question.
According to the L.A. Times, a Studio City sushi restaurant is being sued by a disgruntled all-you-can-eat customer.
David Martin paid $28 and expected to get his fill. Unfortunately, restaurant owner Jay Oh didn't see it that way when instead of eating sushi, which has rice, Martin opted for all-you-can-eat sashimi, which is just fish. (Man, I'm just learning new things every day!) Mr. Hungry would then just pick the seafood off of the top and leave the rice.
Oh told Martin that if he wanted the all-you-can-eat price, he'd have to eat the rice too and not just fill up on fish. Martin replied that he has diabetes and that he can't eat rice.
That's when things got "sticky."
With negotiations stalled, Martin left the restaurant after being charged "a la carte prices." Two weeks later, he filed a lawsuit seeking $4,000 for "humiliation, embarrassment and mental anguish," claiming he was discriminated against "on the basis of his disability." It should also be noted that Martin requested $6,000 to make the lawsuit "the one that got away."
