    I originally thought about posting this in Ignorance not denied forum but since the case has actually been allowed to proceed.


    Is the family's claim a valid one?
    Was Benihana's negligent in throwing shrimp at their customer?

    Personally, I think this guy had a run of bad luck.

    Definatly was bad luck for the guy, and i dont think its fair to blame the chef, but unfortunatly i think the courts will decide in the families favor. I think it istoo bad that the family did not think that the chef, who in my impression does this on a regular basis, would be throwing the food.

    I wonder how the man actually died though. For example, if i tripped over a stores not-well-marked hazard, i could sue them. However, if i had to get surgery and died, is it the stores fault i died?
