PRODUCTS LIABILITY a subway restaurant was found strictly liable and hit with a $449,438 award in the case of a customer who drank lemonade containing a caustic chemical substance. Wade Dickenson, a 37-year-old engraver, suffered acute burns to his esophagus and stomach. He argued that the lines to the beverage machine must have been mistakenly flushed with a caustic agent. Subway contended that nothing in the restaurant could have caused such burns and that even if such materials were on site, there was no way they could have ended up in Dickenson’s cup. On May 13, a California jury found otherwise. Dickinson v. Samra, No. 417115 (San Mateo Co., Calif., Super. Ct.). PLAINTIFF’S ATTORNEYS: William L. Veen and Christopher Viadro, Law Offices of William L. Veen, San Francisco DEFENSE ATTORNEY: William E. Jemmott, Jackson & Harrigan, San Francisco
