In Jefferson Parish suit resident alleges she was injured at Bed Bath & Beyond.

Recently reported by the Louisiana Record, Bed Bath & Beyond is being sued by a customer who was alleges she was injured while shopping at a store when boxes fell on her head. The article also gives details that the New Orleans based law firm is representing the plaintiff in the 24th Judicial District Court of Jefferson Parish before the Honorable Judge Ross LeDart. Given the conservative reputation of the venue I’d rather be on the defense side of this case. The articles also notes that the plaintiff is seeking an”unspecified” amount of damages, which is the standard form of a Louisiana pleading which doesn’t allow for a monetary amount to be included but rather a “prayer” for damages which are “reasonable under the circumstances.” ┬áThis leaves open the possibility for the defense to file a removal action to federal court, which is another standard practice, and what I would do if I were defending the case. In any event, this is just the inception of the case and anything could happen in time.
