Massachusetts Case May Spur Food Allergy Lawsuits
(NEW YORK) -- In the wake of a landmark settlement, restaurants and other food service outlets may now have to go the extra mile to serve sensitive customers in order to avoid a lawsuit.
Lesley University in Cambridge, Mass., is under orders to offer safer options after a student with Celiac disease complained that the school refused to exempt her from its meal plan but wouldn't serve gluten-free food.
The settlement could pave the way for people with allergies -- and other health conditions -- to sue businesses that are subject to the Americans with Disabilities Act.
