Congressma­n sues cafeteria over dental work


U.S. Representa­tive Dennis J. Kucinich, an Ohio Democrat, is suing the operators of a House cafeteria for alleged negligence stemming from a three-year-old incident involving a sandwich that he says left him with dental injuries.

Kucinich is seeking $150,000 in damages from companies that run the cafeteria in the Longworth House Office Building and the providers that service it. The suit documents the 2008 incident, in which Kucinich purchased a sandwich wrap he says was “represente­d to contain pitted olives.” He says he found the olives were not pitted, causing “serious and permanent dental and oral injuries” that required “multiple surgical and dental procedures.”
