A mother has filed a lawsuit saying her teenage son was sickened by E. coli bacteria and hospitalized three months ago after eating food from a Long Island, N.Y., Taco Bell restaurant.

The lawsuit, filed in Manhattan’s state Supreme Court, says Edwina Mooney brought the food home from the Taco Bell in Hempstead, N.Y., on Nov. 18, 2006. It said her son, James Robinson, 16, was the only family member to get sick.
