A Clark County, Washington Sheriff Deputy's lawsuit against Burger King can go forward. The Deputy is suing the chain because he was given a burger that had been spit on. The lawsuit is currently in the hands of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. They asked the Washington State Supreme Court whether the state's Product Liability Law covers someone who isn't physically injured by a product. Deputy Edward Bylsma thought the workers at the restaurant were acting strange and when he inspected his burger found spit on the patty. He has lingering effects that include food aversion, sleeplessness, vomiting and emotional distress. This ruling doesn't resolve the case; but it's expected to allow the Court of Appeal to reach a decision.
