    CA McDonalds customers lawsuit claims being shorted on napkins

    In the US anybody can sue anybody for anything at all or for nothing at all. The most recent example:

    January 29, 2014, a McDonalds customer was provided only one napkin with his ‘Quarter Cheese Deluxe Burger.’
    When he asked for more, conversation w manager ensued.
    He felt “defamed, slandered, discriminated against and his safety was at stake.”

    ^ Scribd PDF ^ of complaint ct-filed Feb. 27, 2014, w 2 page narrative,
    copy of burger receipt, two emails from McDs, and several ct admin. forms.

    You’ll want to read for yourself his two page narrative of events at Scribd link
    (page printed PLD-PI-001(3) at top right, sec.#10).

    Plaintiff, representing self, claims the following (page printed PLD-PI-001 at top right, sec.#10):
    “Undue Mental Anguish,
    Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress,
    Discrimination,
    Slander,
    Defamation of Character,
    Loss of Earning Capacity.” (!?!?!)

    Plaintiff asks for (page printed PLD-PI-001 at top right, sec. #12):
    Compensatory damages and punitive damages of $1,500,000.

    Anybody can sue. It will be interesting to see developments in this case.

    I heard about this ridiculous lawsuit. It is almost certain to be thrown out by the judge I think and hope. The courts should make it a crime to file merit less lawsuits where the pursuer can face a large fine or even jail time for wasting the courts time and resources. It is time the courts sat up and said enough is enough and did something about this. It is not funny and delays the trials of real crimes and civil suits where people have suffered real loss.

    He should try the McDonald's here in Scotland the staff don't even give you one napkin you have to get them yourself from a condiments section.
    The man in my avatar may have killed two innocent teenagers Abigail Williams and Liberty German. If you know who he is Please call the tip line. There is a reward of $250,000 - Tel- 844.459.5786 or email: abbyandlibbytip@cacoshrf.com

    McD 'shorting' napkin to Man who also filed vs Jack-In-The-Box & others

    "This case against McDonald’s is not the first time Lucas has taken on a fast-food joint. He has filed lawsuits against Jack-In-The-Box on two separate occasions and has not received any compensation for his claims, according to court documents.
    Over the last decade he has brought cases against Walmart and Denny’s among others. All but a small claims suit against an auto body shop were dismissed. In each case Lucas did not hire a lawyer." BBM
    http://www.nbclosangeles.com/news/lo...248633761.html

    His lawsuits against JITB comes as a surprise to me.

    After all, in his complaint/petition against McD, he stated
    "[the McD] ... manager continued his rude behavior ...
    [and Lucas said], "I should have went to Jack-In-The-Box, because I didn’t come here to argue over napkins, I came here to eat....."

    Does JITB has an unlimited napkin policy?

    No way! Sounds like this person likes the attention he gets when he sues fast food restaurants. I hope his suit is dismissed.
