Court ruling not so sweet for Cheesecake Factory

Feb. 27, 2013

Glendale - A Whitefish Bay man recently won in court after he sued the Cheesecake Factory over food poisoning.

According to a news release from Fox, O'Neill & Shannon, the firm representing the man:

Ghassan Batayneh became light headed, dizzy and passed out after eating a Mahi-mahi fish entrée at the Cheesecake Factory in the Bayshore Town Center. Doctors later diagnosed him with scombroid poisoning, a type of food poisoning often resulting from the consumption of spoiled fish.

Though the Cheesecake Factory initially denied any responsibility for Batayneh's episode, the company later settled for $15,526.88, which includes court costs and expenses.
