Class Action Lawsuit Filed Against Chili’s; Punitive Damages Sought

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
July 6, 2004

CHICAGO – A class action lawsuit was filed against Brinker Restaurant Corporation, the owner of the Vernon Hills Chili’s restaurant where hundreds were sickened a year ago as a result of eating contaminated food. The complaint, which was filed in US District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, seeks punitive damages on behalf of named plaintiff David Straza, and all other Chili’s outbreak victims who ate food at or from the restaurant between June 23 and June 30, 2003. According to the complaint, “the number of possible class members could easily exceed one-thousand” due to possible underreporting of cases by people who got sick but did not contact the health department or seek medical care.

The class action lawsuit was filed jointly by Marler Clark, a Seattle law firm known nationally for its successful representation of outbreak victims, and Salvi, Schostok & Pritchard, the well known and highly respected Plaintiff’s personal injury firm in Chicago. These two law firms represent the largest number of persons injured in the Chili’s outbreak, and have already filed a total of seven lawsuits so far, with several more planned in the coming weeks.
