A New Hampshire woman and her husband have taken legal action against Eataly Boston LLC for an ankle injury that she says she suffered from slipping on a piece of meat in the Italian market.
In the Friday lawsuit, Alice and Ronald Cohen allege a count of negligence and a count of loss of consortium in connection to the wife suffering a fracture that they say resulted from her slipping on prosciutto on Eataly Boston’s floor. The prosciutto-related fall occurred roughly 10 months ago as they visited the market, according to the complaint.
She slipped and fell near where customers could try samples of food, the lawsuit said. Her injury was described as a “left ankle sprain and distal fibular avulsion fracture.”
The lawsuit accuses Eataly Boston of “breach[ing] [its] duties by failing to ensure that the floor was safe for Plaintiff and other patrons, by failing to ensure that the floor was free from unnecessary dangerous conditions, by failing to adequately prevent and/or remove hazards from the premises and by failing to warn Plaintiff of the dangerous conditions.”
FOX Business reached out to Eataly and the couple’s lawyer for comment. The Massachusetts capital city has had the 45,000-square-foot Eataly location since the fall of 2016.
In the lawsuit, the Cohens request damages “sufficient to compensate them fully and fairly for all the injuries and damages, including physical and emotional pain and suffering, and loss of consortium.” They also want “interest costs and such further relief as the Court may deem proper,” according to the complaint.
They have seen more than $7,500 in costs for treatment of the wife’s ankle injury, a filing said. The complaint argues that damages could top $50,000.
The Eataly brand dates to the 2000s, when founder Oscar Farinetti created the first one in Italy.
Republican presidential candidate and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is re-upping his call for Disney to drop its lawsuit against him and other state officials in his ongoing fight with the entertainment giant, warning the company it is “going to lose.”
DeSantis was asked during a sit-down with CNBC what he would say to Disney CEO Bob Iger if the governor were to call and discuss what has become a very public feud that began under former Disney chief Bob Chapek.
“I would just say go back to what you did well, I think it’s going to be the right business decision,” DeSantis said. “We’ve basically moved on, they’re suing the state of Florida, they’re going to lose that lawsuit. So what I would say is drop the lawsuit.”
DeSantis said Disney has had problems apart from its battle with Florida, and said he believes “parents have lost some confidence that this is a company that’s really speaking to what they want, the way it had been traditionally.”
The governor noted that he and his wife were married at Walt Disney World, “so it’s not like we’re opposed,” and said that “we’ve appreciated working with them over the years.”
DeSantis went on to tout his state’s low unemployment rate and business-friendly environment, and suggested Disney could continue to thrive without the self-governing authority it is suing over losing.
“Your competitors all do very well — here at Universal SeaWorld, they have not had the same special privileges as you have,” DeSantis said in his message to Disney. “So all we want to do is treat everybody the same and let’s move forward. I’m totally fine with that. But I’m not fine with giving extraordinary privileges to one special company at the exclusion of everybody else.”
The Walt Disney Co. did not immediately respond to FOX Business’ request for comment on DeSantis’ remarks.
The feud between Disney and DeSantis began last year when the company publicly came out against Florida’s Parental Rights in Education law, coined the “Don’t Say Gay” bill by critics, which bans classroom instruction about gender identity or sexual orientation in lower grades.
DeSantis responded by pushing the Florida legislature to strip Disney’s self-governing authority and create the Central Florida Tourism Oversight District CFTOD, which now has control over the park’s development.
However, before the new board took control, Disney pushed through changes to the special tax district agreement that limited the board’s action for decades.
Walt Disney Parks and Resorts U.S. Inc. sued DeSantis, Florida Department of Economic Opportunity Secretary Meredith Ivey and members of the CFTOD in April over the move, claiming the defendants violated the company’s free speech rights in a “targeted campaign of government retaliation.”
DeSantis asked a federal judge to toss the lawsuit in June, saying Disney’s case has no merit and the officials have immunity.
