Seattle food illness plaintiffs law firm Marler Clark filed what it believes is the first lawsuit linked to the nationwide recall of 380 million eggs. Managing partner Bill Marler said the firm has been investigating salmonella outbreaks linked to restaurants in various states, but the cause of the illnesses wasn't clear until last week's recall. He said the firm has about 30 potential cases that appear to be linked to the egg recall, and may sue in federal court in Iowa to try to consolidate the cases.
