    This has to be one of the weirdest lawsuits ever. It was 20 years ago, that she worked at a McDonalds.

    Ronald McDonald's clothing selections always have had a certain pimp-like flair.

    Suing McD's is a favorite American pastime.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    And, I can only assume, why her lawyer must hate people.

    Oh boo-hoo-hoo, poor McDonald's, poisoning the planet by ruining public health for decades and decades and now having to put a couple of its many attorneys into court to get this dismissed. Of course this is a crap suit - but it's a crap suit against a crap organization, so I call it even.

    LOL @ wfgodot

    I am no big fan of Micky D's but being in the legal field, I cringe whenever I see the taxpayer dollars going to waste adjudicating BS cases such as this. Cases such as this bog down the whole system. Not to mention makes people dislike lawyers and hey, lawyers are some of my favorite people so I dislike cases such as this for several reasons.

    This is why losers should have to pay all the court costs and winners fees. No wonder everything, including medical costs, are sky high.

    IF any of this from the OP link is true:

    The trouble began in 1982 when Handley hired her to work at the counter in Arroyo Grande, California. The two began dating in 1985, but things got rocky when she lost her job.

    Lynn says that Handley, who still runs the franchise, forced her termination to make her more vulnerable to his demands.

    McDonald's had no policy in place whereby Lynn could have filed a grievance against Handley, Ivernia, and McDonald's,” she said in the filed court documents.
    then I do not feel this is frivolous. Far less frivolous than the lady who sued them for serving her hot coffee and burning herself with it. I expect my coffee to be hot and would be pizzed if it were not. I do not expect to be harassed at my work with no avenue to address the issue even if I allowed myself to become involved with my boss - often times it isn't the woman's choice if she wants to keep her job. And as far as simply moving to a different store....not if the manager puts in a bad word about her to the other managers because wants her under his control. If this woman can prove these allegations then I say more power to her. There are far more frivolous things clogging up our courts right now than this IMO.

    Imagine for one second if what she says is true. Or even partially true. How would you feel if this were your sister? Would you really want the case simply thrown out without looking into what she is saying?

    The unfortunate headline on this article is doing nothing to help this woman's case.
